Serious Windows Warranty Claims
TIM, IS THE SERIOUS WARRANTEE STILL GOOD FROM 2010? I HAVE A WINDOW THAT IS CLOUDY. THANKS
[Site Editor's Answer]
Aremley, Serious Windows went out of business in 2012 and sold their assets to Alpen. So no, your warranty is no longer valid. Here is what I would do -- contact Alpen (thinkalpen.com) and explain the situation, they may be willing to help you out. If they are, definitely let me know and I'll post it on the website so that other individuals who purchased Serious windows will know that Alpen is willing to work with past Serious consumers going forward!
Serious Window Review
I started out looking mainly at Gorell and Okna, but then I happened into a Serious dealer who suggested the Serious 300. The salesman says they're better than Gorell and Okna, and the price is higher. Most of what I've seen online says Okna and Gorell are great, and there isn't a ton of into about Serious, but I worked with this same company on our roof and they did a good job so I'm inclined to trust them. Any opinions?
Okna is the best of those by far. The company is stable and will be around a long time if you do have any problems, but they make a quality product. If you compare different stats, like u-values, ai, dp, etc, you'll see the difference. Serious has had some financial troubles, and I'm not sure they'll be around in a few years to honor the warranties. Gorell looked iffy for a while, too, but was recently bought by Softlite and that should fix those concerns.

Serious vs Inline Fiberglass Windows
I'm looking at Inline fiberglass windows, but they look a lot like Serious. What's the difference? I live in Ontario, Canada, and we have long cold winters. We're replacing south facing windows, with no trees blocking the sunlight. I really want the most energy efficient window I can find, we have to heat the home a large part of the year.
A lot of people are confused about Inline and Serious windows. The Serious windows are made from Inlines, they basically put on suspended film and call it a new window. Inline is just as good, has more styles to choose from, and cost less. Get a true triple pane if you're looking for energy savings and skip the gimmicks.
Serious vs Thermotech & Inline
I think Serious makes a good window, and I also like Thermotech and Inline. Serious makes a really good product with suspended film glass, the lighter weight makes the moving parts last a lot longer and you get more light coming through. Serious has been used in a lot of famous buildings, including the Empire State Building, plus they come with a lifetime guarantee. Thermotech is also great, they are more expensive but they have really great service, and I recommend them especially if you don't know anything about what you want or need. Inline is my third choice but still good.
Serious vs Infinity Windows
Someone asked if the Serious or Infinity is better. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a window. Serious makes a great energy efficient window, but the price is very high. The Marvin Infinity looks really good, but doesn't perform at the same level. The Serious 1125 comes in a casement, picture, or awning style, and it's one of the best windows out there as far as energy efficiency, but you might have to sell the house to pay for new windows! Their 725 line has single and double hungs if that's what you need. But if you can't afford them, Marvin is a good choice. Another thing to remember is that your weather has a lot to do with what's the best choice. The right window for Miami is probably not the same as the best window in Minnesota.

Serious Windows Quantum Reviews
Have you seen the Serious Quantum? It's amazing, well built, really good numbers. The only thing I don't like about it is the Heat Mirror, but that's on a ton of windows and a lot of people like it. I myself prefer a soft low-e coating, but Heat Mirror works.
Redesigns On Kensington Windows
Serious Materials bought some of the assets that used to make up Kensington Windows. They took a lot of the designs and facilities and renamed them as Serious lines. They updated some of the designs a little, but they still have pocket sills on some of them. I know a pocket cuts down on air infiltration but it grabs all the moisture and dirt. They do have Heat Mirror, which I like. The Kensingtons had some issues with fit and locking due to poor design, and I don't know if Serious has fixed all those issues.
Serious Fiberglass Windows
Right now I live in Fairbanks Alaska, but I'm building in North Carolina. I've designed an EcoPanel SIP home and I decided on Serious Windows to finish it up. I looked at a lot of different brands and spent more than 2 years researching them before making a decision. I wanted something energy efficient and green for an environmentally sound home. I'm going with their 925 line, 50 windows in the house and 15 for the garage. They are the most expensive option I considered, but I think they're worth it.
