Storm Tight Quote vs. Barcelona Soft Lite

Hi, I live in South Florida and am looking to replace my windows with hurricane impact windows. I have had two different companies give me quotes on their vinyl window systems. One of the companies is Storm Tight and they claim they manufacture their own windows. They look very similar to the Barcelona series from Soft Lite. I received an estimate from Paradise Exteriors for the Barcelona Soft Lite windows as well as their CWS windows.

Of course, both companies claim to be the best and have reasons as to why the other one is not the best choice. Other than price, is one better over the other as far as quality, warranty, installation issues, etc?

I have 5 openings, but both companies have told me that three of them are oversized and would actually require two windows, or a slider window.

Storm Tight quoted me $8825.00 for three slider windows, one double hung window, and the other one is a small privacy bathroom window. That price includes all the permits, HOA, installation, etc.

Paradise quoted me for 7 windows: one for Soft Lite and one for CWS.

Soft Lite-$9100 for one slider window, 5 double hung windows, and the bathroom window

CWS-$7800 for the same 7 windows with the same vinyl construction and glass, except that they would be single hung and would not have the tilt in feature, night latches, and extra insulation.

Any recommendations or suggestions that you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Patti, I know that Storm Tight manufactures their own windows, but I can't speak to the quality of them. I have talked to several consumers who have showed me bids that were pretty high from them.

Soft-Lite makes some of the best windows and doors in the business. So the difference of $300 to go with a company that has proven itself a high quality manufacturer wouldn't be a question for me. Soft-Lite over the Storm Tight for sure.

The CWS bid however is considerably lower and the company makes a solid window and door. This would be the big question for me. If I could, I would try to stretch into the Soft-Lite option, especially if I were going to be in the house for a long time. If I were considering moving in 10 years or less, I might save the money and go with the CWS.

Thank you so much for your reply. I have been doing more research and the windows that Storm Tight manufactures is Regency Plus out of Pennsylvania. They are very similar to the Soft Lites, with the main difference being that Regency Plus is Miami-Dade approved and the SoftLites are not, they are only State of Florida approved. They actually lowered their quote to $8620.00.

Do you know anything about either one’s warranty? They both claim lifetime warranties.

I would appreciate any input you may have. Your first response is very helpful.

Patti, I googled regency windows and regency window complaints came up high in the search bar. Found two links that worry me.

I don't know enough about Storm Tight to say don't go with them, but I tend to give advise based on the following mantra — go with the company that has a proven track record of success, even if that means a bit more money up front. it could save you lots in the long run.

Storm Tight reputation — seems questionable to me

Soft-Lite — very solid

Soft-Lite has a lifetime warranty that should hold true.

Storm Tight Windows

Are you familiar with Storm Tight Windows? The sales rep stated they make their own products factory in PA. The product looked good. I have seen a few homes in the neighborhood that have used them and the homeowners are happy. 30K for 26 windows – several odd sized/shapes. These are their "premium" line. I am in the Houston TX area.

Jon, I don't know a lot about this window company. I have to say that's not the cheapest window option I've seen in terms of impact windows, especially for a company that isn't all that recognizable. Please let me know how they work out for you so that I can report this to our readers. Thanks

Storm Tight Window Review

I have been researching hurricane impact windows and have become thoroughly confused. We spoke to someone at Storm Tight and though we were going to go with them, but we are now having second thoughts. What are the best hurricane rated impact windows we can buy?

Lisa - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Lisa, I don't know much about Storm Tight, I did a bit of checking and they seem ok, I noticed a few people had some negative reviews that centered on slick sales presentations and poor customer service, but that doesn't mean much. In terms of the windows they sell, I couldn't say because it looks like they probably resell windows instead of manufacture them themselves (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).

I'm assuming you are in Florida based on Storm Tight's location. If it were me, I would search for local companies that carry PGT windows, Custom Window Systems (CWS), and perhaps someone who carries the Simonton StormBreaker Plus or the Simonton Impressions 9800 (you will need to get a couple upgrades to get the 9800 hurricane rated).

I would suggest getting a couple more bids and seeing how it compares to the Storm Tight quote.
