Vytex Great View Windows Reviews
Great View Replacement Windows
I have a bid with a company in Maryland for 7 Great View vinyl replacement windows. I cannot find any specs or info about these windows on the internet. I believe they are made by Vytex, but don't show on the Vytex website. Do you have any info? Are they any good? Thanks.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Nick, I believe that the Grand View window series window is made by Vytex and relabeled by Window Nation. The Grand View window has a .08 air infiltration rating, .26 U-factor and a .27 SHGC, generally good numbers for a vinyl window. I would say that the Grand View is a solid mid range window, perhaps a bit on the better side of that mid mark. Window Nation gets good reviews in many cases, they also get their detractors. I think assuming you are getting solid installation from the local company, the Grand View windows are a good bet.
Window Nation Envision Windows
I recently got a quote from Window Nation for Soft-Lite Envision windows, but I can't find this window on the company website. The local company that gave me the bid said that they are an exclusive window made for them by Soft-Lite. Is this a good window or not? Thanks.

Elliott, thanks for the question, I hadn't heard of this Soft-Lite model so I did some checking. It does look like this is a relabeled window that is marketed by Window Nation. This is a fairly common practice that companies use for marketing purposes, mainly because when they say "we carry an exclusive Soft-Lite window that is available to no one but us," it often sounds impressive.
Window Nation vs Andersen And Marvin
I have a rather large house with Marvin wood windows - drafty, some rotten sills - you get my point. I'm only plan on being in the home for say 5 or 7 more years, but not too much longer.
Steve, I rarely if ever recommend going with the lowest priced window, but if you are only planning on living in the house for 5 to 7 years, I might consider the Vytex Grandview (I believe this is perhaps an off label, I would ask if it's a Vytex window - the Window Nation site seemed to indicate that it was). These are an okay middle of the road vinyl window...not as good as the Okna, but obviously less expensive.
Window Nation Windows Review
We recently had our windows replaced by Window Nation and are thrilled with our new windows. They were well priced and I think they are great looking and performing windows. The only problem we had is I went out and purchased new blinds to go with my new windows, but they never told us that during installation they would remove the window seal, so I have no way of hanging the blinds. But I guess that is my fault and it's not their place to tell me these things. Overall a great experience, professional sales staff and installers.
Window Nation & Vytex
Window Nation has a Paramount window that we are considering putting on our house, but I can't find anything on them. Does anyone know if they are a good quality replacement for our home?
The Paramount window is made by Vytex and rebranded by Window Nation. I believe it is an exclusive arrangement that they have. As far as performance and price, I'd put the Paramount right in between their Georgetown (entry level) and Heritage (mid range).
[2nd Installer Response]
I installed for Vytex for a number of years and I think they make a quality product, all except their Georgetown model, which I don't like. Their warranty isn't the best, they charge $150 per trip for any warranty claims that happen a year after you purchase. They will send replacement parts through the mail for free, but that means you change them out yourself.
Window Nation Customer Complaints
I spent so much time getting quotes on different parts of our home, including our gutters and windows. We eventually dealt with a man named David, who phoned around and tried to get us a good deal on the gutters. They did the measurements and told us that an installer would be contacting us soon. So without concern I paid the deposit and waited for the installers call. He called as promised and arrived and did further measurements to ensure they were all measured correctly the first time and told us they would be back in a few weeks to complete the job. Well three weeks went by and not a word. You can imagine my surprise when I went online to do some banking and noticed that Window Nation had actually refunded my deposit without a word. I've tried calling the salesman and no one answers or calls me back. What a bad service. I would never use Window Nation again and would suggest anyone thinking of using this company stay away.
Great Customer Experience
I spent a lot of time researching windows and meeting with sales representatives from different window companies. The one I really liked was the salesman from Window Nation. He took the time to sit down and go through all the options they had available and was so thorough when doing the estimate. We chose to go ahead with them because their pricing was also within our budget. When the installers arrived they were professional and cleaned up after themselves. What an absolute pleasure.
Window Nation Customer Service
I dealt with Window Nation a while ago and ended up using them to replace the windows in my home. I do think they need to work on their customer relations though. When I initially called to make an appointment with one of their sales team, I was advised they would call me within forty eight hours. When I hadn't heard from them two weeks later, I called again and they couldn't explain why I hadn't received a call back. I managed to get an appointment time there and then on the phone, but the salesman never arrived for the appointment. Now you're probably wondering why I would use a company like this, but after a month or so, I called again and the salesman arrived as planned. We discussed my options, but because my home is old they did warn me that the existing windows could contain lead and if found during the installation, would cost more to have it removed. I understood this and went ahead anyway. Now I eventually have my windows and are very pleased with them. They are good quality and look fantastic on my 1940's condo.
