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.
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 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.

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.

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.

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.
