Kensington Window Prices

Kensington window prices are a bit of a mystery at this point so we won't provide a general price range. The company offers three vinyl window models, the Kingston, Huntington and Quantum2 windows. Kensington is a smaller window manufacturer that has a single factory in Western Pennsylvania.They were once owned by Jancor and then by Serious Energy and today are owned by Alpen High Performance Products, which seems to be a group of former Kensington managers.

All of this ownership change has created some real issues for consumers who bought their windows and had warranty issues with them - the warranty is no good once a new owner gets involved. Kensington vinyl windows are actually considered a well made product - but the big question for consumers is whether they want to trust that this new ownership move is a permanent one.

Kensington Kingston Windows Prices

The Kingston or 300 Series is their lower end vinyl window that is an okay window. Consumers would probably do better with these high rated but still affordable vinyl windows from some better known window companies out there.

Kensington Kingston Prices vs. Alside Fusion

Hi Dane, thought I'd check back in with you as I received a few more quotes. Looks like I'll be paying minimum of $4,500 for replacement of 10 windows. This is for a rental condo that I have in Arlington, VA. Just looking for something that'll be serviceable and that will last, nothing fancy, and that's economical.

My current choices:

Kensington Kingston at $450/window by Nova Installations--company seems to have very mixed reviews though they were recommended by my realtor who'd personally used them.

Alside Fusion at $370/window by Thermal Specialities & Installation Co.--they have 90+ ratings on Angies list, which seem very good.

Sunrise Essentials at $550/window by Nova Exteriors--very good Angies list ratings

Simonton 5050 (or was it 5500) for $400/window Riba Construction LLC, BUT the company offering this deal has only 4 reviews online that I can find (all good, but that's very few reviews)

Given the above--what would be your top three choices, in order of priority?

Again--thanks SO much for your advice.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hugh, let's see, you've got a weird mix of bids. I like the Kensington Kingston at that price, but the installer sounds sketchy.

I don't like the Alside Fusion, but love the installer reviews. Maybe you can see if they would sell you a better window. The Alside Fusion should be their "drop down" window, but who knows.

The Sunrise Essentials is an okay window -- anything else from Sunrise is quite good. $550 for the Sunrise entry level window strikes me as high. If you could get their Sunrise Standard or Classic for $650 I'd say that's worth it (or at any price lower). Sounds like they are good installers.

The Simonton 5050 is just okay, but the Simonton 5500 is a nice window. If you could get the Simonton 5500 for $500, that would be a good price. Installer sounds sketchy as well.

The search continues, I guess.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

[Hugh's Reply]

Well, the strange mix is partly due to trying to find inexpensive but decent quality windows and a contractor who doesn't charge an arm an a leg..

In looking further, the Kingston installer had 131 reviews on Angie, of which 115 were A's. The remainder probably pulled down the overall as there were 6 F's in there. Looks like they sub out their work so I'll try to ensure they use a contractor that has been reviewed.

Thanks again, Dane!

Enjoy the weekend.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jeff, the Kensington Kingston would be my pick if you are staying in your home 7 years or less. The Vytex Fortis or Ideal Majestic would be my pick if you are staying in your home longer than 7 years.

Kensington Kingston Series Prices

I need 4 vinyl windows and have the following quotes. Would like to hear whether any of these options is good. Thanks in advance!

Sears Premium Series: $9200

Viwintec Casement Series: $3685

Viwintec 6000 Ultra Series: $3256

Alside Mezzo Series: $3200

Kensington Kingston Series: $2797

David - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

David, the Sears quote, which is the highest, is the worst quotes. Honestly, the best value you have is the Kensington Kingston. It is their entry level window, but still a good mid range vinyl window. The Alside Mezzo is a decent enough window, but the Kensington is the better vaue.

Kensginton Kingston Window Costs

Replacing 4 windows in Chicago -- 2 double-hungs, 1 garden window and, 1 half arch. Both bids I have come from companies with good reviews and track records.

Kensington (Kingston Series): $6150

Advanced Windows (6300 Series): $7390

James - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

James, I know more about Kensington, which makes a very good window. The Kingston series is their lower end window though so that gives me some pause. I'd try to upgrade to a better window from them and I'll bet it would be the same price as the Advanced Windows bid.

Kensington Kingston 300 Window Bid

Dear Dane, I am currently looking at replacing 16 windows in my home. I live in Memphis TN and its very hot and humid. I've had five companies prepare quotes and there is such a huge difference in pricing I'm a bit overwhelmed and wondering why such a big price jump from one to another. Any guidance into quality or fair price would be appreciated.

I have eight windows 36x74: Six windows 32x62: Two windows 32x68

Sears offered Wincore 7700 installed $13,000.

Window world offered AMI 4000 series installed $6,880.

Pella offered Encompass series installed $12,774.

Champion 365 series installed $20,655.

Contract Pro offered Kensington 3000 series installed $8,000.

Jennifer - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Jennifer, to answer your question, there is a huge variation in price because companies are not obligated to give you their best price. They can throw out any price they want and hope that you say yes. Now let's try to get you the best window at the best price.

Window World uses a poorly made window, so toss that bid.

I'm not a fan of the Pella Encompass, so I'd toss that one.

Champion makes a good vinyl window, but the bid is way too high.

I like the Wincore 7700, but your bid sounds expensive and the company that bid that out is sometimes more expensive than they should be. I'd like the bid at $10K.

I like Kensington HPP, but they don't sell a 3000 series window. They do sell a Kingston 300 series, although they usually drop the 300 part on the website. I know they have had warranty issues in previous years with financial problems with ownership changes. Since 2013, they have become quite a reliable company. Having said that, I would be wary about using their entry level window. Can you get a quote on the Huntington model. If you got that one for $10K I think that would be the option I would go with. The window offers very good performance and is a generally nice looking vinyl window in my opinion.

Kensington Kingston Window Costs

NEED RECOMMENDATION FOR HOUSTON HOUSE WINDOWS: FRONT OF SINGLE STORY HOUSE HAS FAKE SHUTTERS AROUND WINDOWS WITHIN BRICK RECESS AND PREFER CLEAN LOOK OF NON-PROTRUDING WINDOWS TO BE EVEN WITH SHUTTERS (LIKE EXISTING SINGLE PANE ALUMINUM WINDOWS). DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS ALWAYS HAVE EXTENDED GROOVE FOR SCREEN. AND MANUFACTURERS SEEM TO ONLY BUILD PROTRUDING BOXED FRAMES. IF I HAVE TO GET PROTRUDING FRAME I NEED IT TO BE MINIMAL FOR FRONT SHUTTER AREA AND REAR WOOD SIDING AREA WHICH AS 1x2 TRIM AROUND WINDOWS.

ZEN HOUSTON QUOTES $7K FOR SOFT-LITE NIRVANA WHICH IS D.H. CLASSIC WITH INCLUDED OPT. DOUBLE STRENGTH GLASS W/SOLARBAN 70XL AND REINFORCED FRAME WITH FOAM AND $75x8 FOR WINDSTORM CERTIFIED INSTALL;

ALSO QUOTES $6K FOR KENSINGTON KINGSTON HPP SAME GLASS PKG WO/REINFORCED FRAME (SAME LOOKS).

WINDOW WORLD QUOTES $3K FOR 4000 SERIES.

I LIKE THE EXTERIOR LOOK OF H.D.'S PLYGEM 650F S.H. W/SDL BUT IT HAS NO MATCHING SLIDERS. IS THERE A GOOD PERFORMING WINDOW THAT WON'T PROTRUDE AT MY SHUTTERS AND WOOD WALLS? ALSO, STILL WANT MY MINI-BLINDS WITHIN THE WINDOW CAVITIES OF INTERIOR SO NO DEEP JAMB DEPTHS. WHAT CAN YOU RECOMMEND IN HOUSTON FOR MY WANTS. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR INFO....JOHN

John- Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

John, I like the Kensington Kingston HPP bid. That looks very solid. The Zen Nirvana is a good window, but I don't think it's better than the Kingston. I like the Milgard Hermosa and the price looks right as well. The Simonton quote also looks solid. If it were me, these three would be at the top of my list -- Kensington, Milgard and Simonton. I'd go with the Zen if you don't mind the paying a bit more.

Billy - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Billy, you have some really excellent bids. The Kensington HP Quantum 2 is a really good deal for this high end top tier window. The next for me would be the Okna 500 for $630. The Soft-Lite bids are also quite good. I would use these bids and see if you can find out which company/installer has the best track record etc.

I love this bid set because it shows so clearly how CRAZY prices differ from one company to another. For instance, the OKNA 600 (a lower quality window than the 500 series) at $1391!
