Ideal UltraTite Windows Prices

Ideal UltraTite vs. Vytex Potomac hp

We have a home with 18 windows that need replacing. I have a number of bids, all on different windows. Here's what I have so far. All of them include or lead safe installation that was quoted out at roughly $65 per window.

Ideal UltraTite Series: $515
Vytex Potomac-hp Series: $565
Soft-Lite Pro Series: $615
Simonton 6100 Series: $695
Simonton 6500 Series: $800

Gertrude - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gertrude, of the bids you have, the two I like most are the Vytex Potomac hp: $565 and Soft-Lite Pro: $615. In fact, I would rate the Vytex Potomac hp as the best of the bunch and the price is one of the lowest. I'd say this is the clear winner in my book!

Ideal 5000 Windows Prices

Ideal 5000 Window Costs

I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and was quoted on the Ideal 5000 series window at $400 fully installed. The other bid was the Gorell 5100 window that was $572 fully installed. Ideal carries a 20 year warranty, while Gorell carries a 50 year warranty.

Lewis - Homeowner - from 2009

[Site Editor's Response]

The Gorell is the better window for sure, but obviously they are alot more expensive as well. Ideal windows should come with a limited lifetime warranty on all the vinyl parts, btw. The Ideal 5000 window is just okay, but it's probably worth $400 per window installed.

Ideal Platinum 3000 Windows Prices

The Ideal Platinum 3000 is the company's drop down window from their premium Majestic series. However, these two windows are pretty darn close in terms of performance and construction. The frame and sill wall are not as strong in the Platinum 300 series. Performance wise, the Ideal Platinum 3000 still achieves a .23 U-factor and .02 air infiltration. Both strong numbers.

Ideal Platinum 3000 Series Price Bid

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the email. Very helpful. Your feedback on us not noticing the difference between 0.45 and 0.55 is very helpful as that was the latest factor giving us pause. We heard from someone else that we would notice a difference in a 0.44 vs a 0.50 (this was coming from one of the window installers we talked to). We'd like to go with an energy star package and are on board with a low e coating; we'd just also like to ensure that we have a good amount of actual light coming through too.

Here's the pricing we are seeing for 12 double hungs and 2 awnings in the Northern VA area. Maybe you can share your recommendation out of the 3:

Ideal Platinum 3000 Series
U-factor: 0.22
SHGC: 0.20
VT: 0.44
Glass package: ESM+ Package. Dual pane, 7/8” double strength I.G with two surfaces of Triple Silver LowE, Argon Gas, Foam filled Frame and Sashes and Duralite Spacer.
Quote: $5,040

Ideal Majestic
U-factor: 0.27
SHGC: 0.28
VT: 0.50
Glass package: Energy Green package. A dual pane, double strength 7/8″ I.G. unit featuring a softcoat LowE Glass, Argon Gas, Foam Filled Frame and Sashes and an Ultra Intercept® Spacer.
Quote: $7,320

Okna 500
U-factor: 0.25
SHGC: 0.29
VT: 0.53
Glass package: Deluxe. Heat seal glass system (double pane glass unit). Foam filled extrusions. Locking screen.
Quote: $9,723

From talking to the Ideal Majestic and Okna 500 folks, they indicate their NFRC values are best for our northern va climate (vs the Ideal Platinum 3000 ratings). Is that true?

Given the details and quotes above, which would be your pick? We are trying to figure out if it is worth paying an extra $2,300 to $4,700 for the Ideal Majestic or Okna 500 over the Ideal Platinum 3000 series?

Thanks again for your insight and feedback!!

Rob - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Rob. Here is what I'd say. One, that is very good pricing you have on all three. In answer to your statement below, I'd say go with the Ideal Majestic. Good SHGC and VT numbers with a low-e glass and foam filled frame and sash. A good strong frame with a .02 air infiltration in a window that is being priced out at $500 per window. You can't really ask for more than this.
"We'd like to go with an energy star package and are on board with a low e coating; we'd just also like to ensure that we have a good amount of actual light coming through too."
In terms of the best NFRC numbers for northern VA, I'm going to have to defer to the local guys. They know what numbers are the best and this should be bourne out in their online reviews so I'd make sure they have good track records.
I say you save the $2400 and go with the Majestic.

Ideal Platinum Price Bid

Dane – I have received 5 quotes on replacing 15 windows; Okna 500 Deluxe $12,500, Okna Deluxe 400 $11,500, Softlite Nirvana $8,325, Ideal Platinum $6,885 and Alside Mezzo $6,720. I live in PA. I am between the Okna and Softlite. Based on the price/quality/installer I am leaning towards the Softlite. What is your opinion? Thank you.

Nancy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nancy, I agree with you completely, the Soft-Lite Classic or Nirvana is probably the best value of the bunch. Quite a good window. Assuming you feel comfortable with the installer, then i think you have your winner.

Ideal Platinum 3000 Window Costs

I recently got 2 bids, one on the Ideal Platinum 3000 for $6600 and the other for Sunshine Restoration window at $9200. I've read that the Restorations is a great window, but is it worth that much more than the Platinum 3000?

Jene - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Jene, the Restorations is certainly one of the better vinyl windows, but it's unclear whether it's $2700 better that the Platinum 3000, which delivers a .02 air infiltration and a .22 U-factor. I might have to give the nod to the Ideal Platinum 3000 on this one. This may be a first that I didn't recommend the Sunrise Restorations window!

Ideal Majestic Signature Windows Prices

The Ideal Majestic series is the company's premium vinyl window and has a .02 air infiltration rating and a .23 u-factor. These are impressive performance numbers that rival some of the top tier vinyl windows out there. The Majestic has a more durable frame and sill wall compared to the Platinum 3000 series.

I've noticed that the Majestic is often priced twenty to thirty percent lower than similar quality windows. The bottom line is the Ideal Majestic is a top performing vinyl window that can offer some great value to consumers given the right price point.

Ideal Majestic Window Costs vs Pella Impervia And Okna

We have talked to 5 window replacement businesses and are down to choosing between three. We live in DC suburbs, and based on what I am reading, we apparently pay a different price than other areas (i.e. much higher). The job is 13 windows and one 6 foot slider. Townhouse is contemporary, wood siding, with SW exposure and wonderful light in the living room. Current windows are original to 1981, metal, double pane but the wind blows through.

Windows include seven 30.5 X 70 windows. There is conflicting information on whether four of these need tempered glass on the bottom Four are 10 ? from the floor, 2 of these are in a second story BR. One company says we don?t need the tempered glass because the total area of the bottom window is less than 9 sq ft. Two suggested we have the tempered glass for safety, regardless of the area. One slider over the bathtub will be tempered glass

Estimates include the following:

Company 1: Okna 500 $15,516, installed (with additional discounts for cash, putting up a sign, signing day he came out... we didn't)

Okna 800 $16, 491 (same discounts) Very busy molding on the outside of this one, though ratings are excellent.

Tempered glass in Bathroom only

Company 2: Soft-Lite Pro $12,665 (haven't asked him re: additional discounts yet for the Pro or the LS)

Soft-Lite LS $13,725

Pella Impervia $13,995 (we saw Pella windows, didn't care for them, and energy ratings are better for the vinyl)

Tempered glass in four bottom windows

This company was the only one that got that I want to maximize the glass opening to maintain the light in our home. The other two kept telling me to compare the VT, which is part but not all of it. He is going to come out again with his installer to see if they can use a dremel saw to open a bit more of the inside frame allowing a larger window insert and larger glass area.

Company 3: Ideal Majestic Energy Green Package $11,160 (check or credit card price $10,335)

Tempered glass in four bottom windows.

All companies to cap exterior wood around windows with aluminum, all include the thruvision screens.

I have a spreadsheet to compare the energy ratings, warranties, etc. but may have overdone this and we may be in the area of overthinking this. Any of these will be so much better than what we have now, but we hope to be here at least 10 more years or longer. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Ruth - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ruth, company 1 and 2 are offering some great windows. The Ideal Majestic is just an okay window, while the other windows are excellent.

If it were me, I would go with the Imperial LS. The Pella Impervia isn't a very good fiberglass window in my opinion.

Okna is a great window but the Soft-Lite is comparable. The Imperial LS is an excellent window and seems like the best priced of the bunch.

The bid is hopefully negotiable, so perhaps use the Ideal bid to see if you can get company 2 to come down on their price. Something like if you can come close to this other bid for $11,136, I will sign today. Take a bit of time and see if you can find the floor of the quote.

Ideal Majestic Windows Costs

Please compare and rate Ideal Majestic windows with Viwinco Cambridge. Installer is quoting $1,300 more for 11 windows ($2,900 vs $4,200). We had 19 windows replaced seven years ago with Viwinco and are very pleased with them.

Bill - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bill, I would probably put these two windows in the same category; they are both the mid range vinyl window in each company's line up. Those are excellent prices you were quoted. If you like the Viwinco and are pleased with their durability and performance, then I don't see why you wouldn't go with them again. Assuming that the installation team is as thorough as they were last time, you should be well served.

Ideal Majestic Signature Window Cost

I'm in Pennsylvania and just got a bid on the Majestic Signature series, which they priced out at $450 per window.

Thank you.

Bobbi - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Bobbi, Ideal is not a bad window and that is actually a nice competitive price. Since you said you live in Pennsylvania, I'd consider a few more brands such as Okna, Zen, Sunrise and Soft-Lite. This will help you see whether the bid you have really is competititve or not.
