United 4800 vs MGM Sienna

I have a rental townhome in Maryland. What brand of windows would you recommend? I got a quote for united 4800 series, MGM sienna windows and revere windows. I am so confused!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated

[Site Editor's Response]

Hi Maria, there are certainly lots of options out there and the process can get more than a little confusing. All three window brands you mentioned are in the lower end of the vinyl window range, however we are talking about a rental so you probably aren't looking to put a ton of money into the project.

If it were me, I would go with something like a Simonton window, maybe their VantagePointe series, or their mid range Reflections series. Simonton makes decent windows and with proper installation, it should serve your interests well.

The other company that is local to your state is Vytex and they make very decent windows and its very possible that a dealer in your area would offer competitive pricing on one of their window models. I would definitely call up the company, ask for the local rep or dealer and get a bid from them for comparison.

Let me know what you find!

United vs Crystal

Looking for 12 replacement double hung windows, plus converting 2 to a bay...so far I have 3 quotes. The Alside Excaliburs and United 4800s were really close in price, then the Crystal Series 200 was about half that. I'm not sure which I should go with and what the differences are. The United rep said they use shims and caps on every window instead of simply nailing them in. Is that a big deal? Excaliburs have a better warranty. I don't really know much about the Crystals, they can't be as good for that much less.

I've done a lot of work with Sunrise, Soft-Lite, OKNA, Simonton, Gorell. They all have various window series, basically a premium line, a standard one, and then a bargain. For the most part, big differences in price from one estimate to another are because you're comparing across quality lines. I'd go back and ask them about the features to figure out what level of window you're looking for before you compare the costs. To be honest, none of the three brands you mentioned are something I would recommend to customers of mine.

United vs. Certainteed & BF Rich

I'm looking for replacement windows in New Jersey. I have 4 casements, a double slider, a 9 foot patio door and 2 picture windows. I've got quotes for CertainTeed Bryn Mawrs, BF Rich, and Series 700 from United Window and Door. The quotes are all pretty similar, with pretty much the same warranties and features. I'm not sure which to go with. There doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there on United.

A lot depends on the contractor. CertainTeed is now made by MI, and I'm not a fan. I don't know a lot about B F Rich. United is a middle of the road window, they aren't great but not horrible.

I used to use United windows a lot. They are mostly in New Jersey. They are a nice, solid product, that's what I put on my own house. I used CertainTeeds once because a customer insisted and I will never do it again.

United vs Alside

I'm getting quotes from several companies, including United and Alside. I want a good window without laying out a ton of money.

Aimee - Homeowner - 2010

[Contractor Response]

Excalibur is a low quality builder's window. The design is poor and it has high air leakage rates. The United is a little better, but I'd still look somewhere else. Okna, SoftLite, Gorell all make great windows for reasonable prices.
