PGT 5500 vs Custom Window Systems
Hi Dane,I'm new to the Venice, FL area after moving from NJ. Entire home needs new windows. Quote was for 15 slider windows with prairie grid. PGT 5500 new winguard vinyl series which are triple pane, laminated, and insulated with lowE coating. Windows include 1 larger FR, 6 medium sized ones say 48 x 60”, 2 small Bath, 1 garage, 1 small kitchen into lane and 4 BR windows. Quote was for $14000 and this was for full installation of windows and any additional material needed to complete the job. Thank you.

Joe, the PGT Winguard vinyl window is quite a good window, however it’s tough to say whether the quote is fair or not. I think you need a couple more quotes to compare it to. I would see if a local company sells CWS, Custom Window Systems, in your area and tell them you want a quote on their most similar window to the triple paned PGT5500 series. Also, see if you can find someone local who sells the Simonton Stormbreaker Plus Series.
Those two windows are pretty close in terms of quality and construction to the PGT5500. Get the two bids and see how they compare; sometimes you will get wildly different bids from local companies depending on how busy or not busy their work schedule.
TY so much for getting back to me. We had another local company gives us a price for CW windows equal to PGT and quote came in about the same price as the 14K. We have 2 more companies seeing us this week that will give us quotes. Will ask about the Simonton comp’s windows. We’ll also ask the company (GJC Port Charlotte) that gave us the PGT 14K quote if CW or Simonton is an option that will save us money.
CWS 8000 Windows Prices
Custom 8000 Windows Cost
I am replacing my windows in St Petersburg, FL (central, coastal Florida). I am planning on going with non-impact windows, and after getting 11 quotes (don't believe anybody who tells you to get only 2 or 3: this does NOT apply to Florida. I am SO GLAD I got all those quotes) I narrowed it down to 2. One is proposing Custom Window Systems 8000 series for about 5.5k for 9 windows, and the other would install softlite Imperial LS for 6.7k. I know that the softlite are among the best vinyl windows.

Damien, 11 quotes, wow, I am impressed you had the fortitude to sit through all of that. You have selected two great companies, just goes to prove what hard work and research get you. Undoubtedly, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS is a great vinyl window, but CWS makes a very good window as well. I don't think Soft-Lite is more of a cold climate window, I just think the factory is located in a cold climate. I do kind of like the idea of getting windows from a factory in the state in which you live, but I'm not sure there is anything really rational in the thought, I think it just gives me a piece of mind for some reason.
CWS 8100 Windows Prices
CWS 8100 Series Pricing
We are looking to replace 8 single pane Windows with hurricane impact Windows. I have gotten two quotes. Which window is best and why?
[Site Editor's Answer]
Dana, these two impact windows are pretty close in quality, as are CWS and PGT in terms of quality and construction. In general, PGT is a bit more well known than Custom Window Systems, but both CWS and PGT are my top picks for impact windows on the south east coast. If it were me, I would turn to the quality of the installers as the deciding factor. If those are equal, I would probably go with the PGT only because they are a bit bigger operation.
CWS Single Hung Windows Pricing
We have 2 quotes for 14 windows. One is from Home Depot on the Simonton VantagePointe double hung for $8500.
[Site Editor's Response]
Jeremy, that is a big price difference. I like CWS and think it's the better window, but I'm not sure it's worth 30% more. I think the Simonton VantagePointe window is pretty good, but I would see how much you can get the CWS dealer to come down on his price and see if you can't get it to closer to 10K. Then I think you go with CWS, otherwise the VantagePointe is probably the better value.
