Window Source of Kentucky

I need to pick your brain one more time. I know the last info you gave me was to go with the lowest quote since we are looking to move in 5-7 years. And you gave me the order of brands to look at. But since your last email I have been sent a quote for Zen and another from The Window Source of Kentucky. Zen's installers would be out of their home office in Columbus, OH. And The Window Source of Kentucky would be out of Lexington, KY. I threw the other 2 in just to show all of the quotes that I have received.

Here is a little more detail about our home. I live in Louisville KY. Our house is brick all the way around and from top to bottom. It was built in "98" and seems to be very well insulated. The front of the house faces the East and the back the West. So we get both early morning to mid-afternoon in the front and mid to late in the evening in the back. There are a couple of river Birch's that block a little sun in the front, but not much. It is full sun in the back.

Below are the results on the quotes:

White Vinyl inside and out. All 8 are double hung with double strength glass and have LowE/Argon. 2 of the windows have grids in them.

With this information what would your ranking be of the above windows? Keep in mind that we hope to move in 5-7 years.

Thanks again for all of your answers and insight. I really appreciate the quick replies.

Hey Greg, so this is a no brainer for me. The Zen Windows Nirvana (Soft-Lite Classic Plus) or the Pro triple pane is the way to go here. $90 more for the Pro is probably worth it, it's exactly what I'd expect in terms of the upgrade cost. Either one is going to provide you with the best long term value. Personally, I'd probably go with the Lotus/Pro option myself.

Window Source 9000 vs. Soft-Lite Elements

I have met with 5 vinyl window companies and after receiving their 5 quotes, I like both the WINDOW SOURCE-MODEL 9000 and the SOFT-LITE ELEMENTS. Both providers will provide triple pane: 4 casements, 1 double hung, and the remainder all picture windows; plus a 9 foot sliding patio door set. Does the Model 9000 equal the ELEMENTS, or is it one of SOFT-LITE'S other models? I spent most of today going through your outstanding window info. web site, and learned so much, but was surprised your company A-Z listing did not list THE WINDOW SOURCE {}? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lawrence, I have heard of the Window Source in the past, but I know very little about them. They do seem to be in a number of different locations, according to their website. They aren't listed on the website under their directory search, which includes nearly 700 window and door manufacturers. I'd personally be wary of using any company who hasn't put their products to the test using this site.

On the other hand, the Soft-Lite Elements is one of the very best vinyl windows on the market, a truly top tier vinyl window. If this were me, I would go with the Soft-Lite option in the blink of an eye.

As promised in April of 2019, I would review the WINDOW SOURCE 9000 Windows, I had installed in late August. They are manufactured by GREAT LAKES WINDOW INC., that is part of PLY GEM WINDOWS. I had a total of 21 - 9000 series windows installed that included 5 casement/ 3 panel patio door set/ and the remainder were all picture windows. The 9000 series are triple pane, Low-E, Argon Gas, Energy Guard3 IS. Pictures = U-factor 0.16/SHGC 0.23/VLT 0.44. Casements = U-factor 0.19/SHGC 0.19/VLT 0.35. WINDOW SOURCE provides a Lifetime Warranty/Labor/Glass Break Coverage.

Window Source 9000 Series Bid

I'm replacing a sliding patio door and 14 double hungs for our new home. My three bids include the 9000 series from Window Source for $11,566, the 4000 series from Window World for $8986, and the Grandview series from Window Nation for $15,446.

Debbi - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Debbi, Window Source isn't that well known to me so I can't say one way or the other. The 4000 series from Window World is not a good window. That leaves you with The Window Nation Grandview window. A decent vinyl window but that's a high bid. I think you need another bid or two.
