Okna Window Prices

Okna window prices are in the mid to high end of the vinyl window cost spectrum. Okna makes several window lines, including the 400, 500, 800, 1800, and Starmark composite. All of their window models are considered well made, although the 500 and 800 Series are the standouts of the bunch. Consumers can select from one of two "package options", the Energy Option, which includes low-e glass and argon fills, or the Deluxe Option, includes the features in the Energy Option, as well as foam filled frame and a locking screen.

Okna 400 Windows Prices


Okna 400 and 500 Window Bids

Hello - are there any window suggestions in the vinyl mid frame that I can buy or have a window installer buy? Like Okna is great but they only have certain installers who put high pressure to buy ALL or they dont like to even come out. I live in the hudson valley NY and you're list is not suggesting the brands at the big box stores. His email says " those United Windows that I was telling you about. They're lower line comes in around $200 per window and they're higher line is about 275-300". Is there any suggested window brand that we can order ourselves w.out having to be an auth dealer/installer?

Scott - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, most quality windows are sold through authorized dealers/companies -- that's just the way it is. Certain contractors have access to a number of different brands, but finding the ones who sell quality windows in your area wouldn't be something that I could help you with. The big box stores sell a few decent windows, but again it's regional, so I can't tell you what they carry. I know out west some of them carry the Andersen 100 window, which I consider a good window. Reliabilt gets decent reviews, but I also hear a lot of complaints about problems that crop up.

The only way to buy windows yourselves is through the home improvement stores -- here's what I would do -- go to the big box stores and ask them which vinyl window they would put in their house -- Simonton, Andersen 100 (not Silverline), or even the wood-clad Jeld Wen (I'm not a big fan of their vinyl windows). Then find a local installer using Angles List, craigslist, etc. that has lots of high quality reviews and call them up and ask them to come out and give you a bid.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

[Scott's Answer]

Ok. How do you think these quotes are?

Putnam is trying to steer me to 400.

$630.00 to upgrade to 500 but he SWEARS it's the "same" window

Just exteriors cant even get the 500 and they are pushing the 800 and suggested stearing clear of the 400.

Window king says don't touch the 400 and is suggesting the 500 except of the large slider in the kitchen they are suggesting the 800.

Any thoughts pop out at your when reviewing the three quotes?

Scott - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, I took a look at your three proposals and I have to say that the Window King looked like the clear winner to me. (I know nothing of the company, their reputation or their quality so that's my caveat here.) Basically, they are charging you $7000 total for 12 Okna 500 double DX double hungs, 1 400 series, and 1 800 series -- all with the DX energy package. That's a smoking deal if you ask me. The other proposals were much higher. Assuming you like their company and they have a good reputation, I don't see how you can turn this one down.

Okna 400 Precision Weld Window Costs

The Okna 400 window is one of the best low priced models on the market. With the Deluxe package, you get a U-value of 0.28, AI of 0.05, and SHGC of 0.30. You can see advertised deals of around $400 but to get the best install, expect to pay around $450, which is still a good price. It doesn't have some of the fancy options and upgrades that more expensive windows offer, but it is an excellent budget window. The 400 Series is comparable to the Gorell 5100 window.


Okna Exterior Frame Upgrade Cost

Should a cream exterior (Okna window) instead of white for 33 windows cost 5K? This is one of their options and not a custom color. Thanks.

Steve - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Custom exterior frame colors can run quite a bit, unfortunately. $150 per window for the upgrade sounds about right — it just sounds bad when it tacks on $5K to the project!

Okna 400 Prices vs Sunrise Window Costs

I live in northern New Jersey and I need to replace one bathroom window in the tub/shower area. Window size is about 22" x 41". I have gotten several price quotes. All include obscure, tempered glass, argon filled, low-E with no grills.

Includes installation:

Okna 400 series – Deluxe energy savings package - $600 (500 series - $650)

Sunrise Standard - Ultra-U Plus glass system - $620 (Vanguard - $665)

Silverline 9500 - $485 (8600 - $445, 1200 - $380)

Does not include installation

United Windows 4800 series - $307

Seller does not install and since I was not leaning toward this window I did not get an installation quote from a third party.

I was considering the Sunrise Standard, but leaning toward the Okna 400. What is your opinion between these two windows and of all the options?

Thanks for your help!

Carey - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Carey, I think the two strongest bids are the Okna 500 and Sunrise Standard. The Okna 400 is right below this. I think you can forget about the Silverline and United Window bids.

If it were me, I'd do the Okna 500, but I think installation should be the deciding factor between the Okna and Sunrise. How do the installers compare in terms of reviews, reputation, industry experience. Ask them to take you through the process and see how thorough they answer the question. I think you have two good options here.

Okna 500 Insul-Tec Windows Prices

The Okna 500 window is used as a replacement window, but sometimes is seen in new construction as well, with a nailing fin or a flange and J-channel. The efficiency numbers are a little better than the 400, with a U-value of 0.25, AI 0.02, SHGC 0.28, and DP50. In addition, it has some upgraded features. The sill wall is improved and it comes with a Duralite spacer. It is a good value for a mid-grade price. The 500 Series is comparable to the Sunrise Vanguard.

Okna 500 Costs vs Alside Mezzo

Tim, I have received quotes on replacing 13 windows from 3 companies; Okna 500 deluxe $8454, Alside Mezzo $6700 and Anderson 400 $13400. We live in Indiana. I'm between the Okna and Alside. What is your opinion? Thank you

Brenda - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Brenda, my opinion is that there is no choice between the two. The Alside Mezzo is a mediocre vinyl window, while the Okna 500 Deluxe is an excellent vinyl window, one of the best on the market. It is absolutely worth the price difference.

Having said that, the $8454 might not be the floor of the Okna reps price. I would use the Alside Mezzo bid as leverage to try and negotiate window pricing. You've found a great window, now its time to get the best price :)

Okna 500 Prices vs. Champion 8200 Series

I stumbled up on your site while trying to research window comparisons and would like more experienced perspective. This is for ranch home in south-eastern WI (northern climate region).

Granted from quotes I've received, Champion costs more, but written breakdown was in grouping so I can't get clear answer on how much windows did cost from champion (15 windows, including 2 hopper & patio door) - ended up being $32,196, but with 33% discount & extra 5% off - ends up being $19,963. They did nice demo (heat lamp, glass samples, UV spectrum, window frame demo) - which was nice to have hands-on and visuals.

However, when i asked for rating beforehand, the rep seems slightly resisted to provide printout of ratings which I've copied for double-hung windows - he said rating doesn't really matter in big picture then proceed with his demo. While I did like the UV resistance (95%) and nice protective little doors for water drains out (but closes to block bugs from getting in) - their ratings seems to be not any better than minimal to meet the ES requirements. We're also going with 'open-prairie' flat grid option to give more character to our home. Champion also is offering little extra end-of-month discount as incentive (about $3,500) off total project ($24,228 down to $20,969). Champion rep also does not recommend triple panel due to weight & warranty factor, as it won't give much improvement performance wise.

Champion 8200DH w/Comfort 365 glass w/grid, double panel.
U-factor: 0.27
SHGC: 0.19
VT: 0.44
CR: 55
AAMA:
Grade - R 30
AI - 0.10

On other hand, through HomeSealed Exterior, LLC (which has outstanding reviews): Both with Heal Seal Glass System: Total of $15,969 (with 20% disc. = $12,776 (clear version, but I'm inquiring if they have 'open-prairie' grid option (would cost little extra) - have not received any answer on this yet. Double panel info below: UV rating of 80% (rep said he has never heard of fading complains with either double panel or triple panel (90%)).

14 count of 500DX (Insul-tec, double-hung, Deluxe pkg):
U-factor: 0.25
SHGC: 0.27
VT: 0.49
CR: 62
AAMA:
Grade - R 50
AI - 0.02
1 count of 500 Series (basic, double-hung, for garage)
Ratings almost similar to above, maybe little higher U-factor by extra
0.01/0.02. -----------

We're also looking at patio doors, but seems like Okna version is better than Champion's offering. We also asked about hopper window (not too much info on this one) and entry doors (probably phase 2 or 3).

Overall, we're also considering triple panel option (about $1,000) more for Okna, but have to factor in warranty (which I need to ask since I'm told that sometimes warranty wont cover if one side breaks but other two are still intact). Triple panel is also heavier but provides better rating performances in longer run, especially that I've read that the rating systems will be adjusted (U-factor being 0.20 or lower down the road). Triple panel's rating w/grid is:
U-factor: 0.20
SHGC: 0.24
VT: 0.38
CR: 72
AAMA:
Grade - R 50
AI - 0.02

I've read articles that suggested for Northern areas, better to go with CR of 60 or better - which Okna for both double/triple panel, double-hung windows. Okna's patio doors has better ratings than (cost $3,220, w/20% off: $2,576) Champion's too (cost unknown for Champion as it was bundled with windows above).

There's lot more to look over, but I'll appreciate it if you can provide pro/cons comparison & experience/perspective between the two besides the ratings above. I would appreciate any insight that would assist with decisions as windows/doors are long term investment.

Andrew - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andrew, I usually reply with quite a bit of detail, but you've already done that so I'm going to be very short and sweet. :)

Champion $20.9K

Okna 500 $12.7

The Okna 500 is the CLEAR winner, even if they were the same price (even if the Okna was more expensive). Hands down, no question, the Okna bid. It's a great window. I tend to think triple pane is overkill, but in your neck of the woods it might make sense.

Okna makes a better patio door as well. You will be well served with your choice. Good luck, it sounds like a great project!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017


NT Presidential Windows Prices vs Okna

We are replacing 24 year old single pane, single hung aluminum windows in the Houston area. We have 50 windows which makes this an expensive project. We were all ready to pull the trigger on the NT Presidential window, when we got a final bid on the Okna 505 series with double pane low e 55/27 with argon. The difference is $5000 and I’m wondering if the Okna is really worth it. Also, while both installers get A ratings, the Okna installer mentioned that he uses insulating foam spray insulating before they caulk. The other installer didn’t mention that, but if we go with the NT, I will be asking. So, I guess I’m asking what would you do?

Kathy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kathy, I think the NT Presidential is a good window, but the Okna 505 is a very good single hung window. I would personally say go with the Okna for the $5000. However, before I did I would tell the Okna rep about the NT bid and tell him that you are on the fence and want to go with him if he can get close to the NT bid. Tell him that the $5000 is just out of your budget and you are wringing your hands over the extra cost, something like this. I'll bet he moves on the price...

As far as the foam spray, many installers use a low expanding foam to fill any gaps before caulking. If you do go with NT, definitely ask him whether he uses it. Some installers prefer traditional insulation and feel more comfortable with it -- improper use of expanding foam can cause damage, but most installers who know how to use it don't have any issues with it.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

[Kathy's Answer]

Thank you Tim for your response. I have an additional question in regards to foam filled frames on both the Okna and NT windows. When the Okna rep came out he showed us that the frame was foam filled in multiple chambers around the window frame and sash. The NT it looks like the foam is an upgrade option. Due to the size of the windows we would like the extra rigidity of the foam frame. Are we correct in our thinking and do you know whether the Okna and NT are indeed foam filled as standard or optional? Thanks again.

Kathy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kathy, typically (but these things can vary by rep) Okna offers an Energy or Deluxe package wit the Energy being their standard and Deluxe being their upgrade. The Deluxe includes the foam fills in the frame and a better locking mechanism. I think the foam frames are worth the extra cost for the rigidity and improved energy efficiency.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna 500 Bid vs Andersen 400

Dane, I really like your site, been lurking for several years gathering information and now need to start thinking seriously about replacing windows. Had a local Delaware company come out and give a price for (16) double hung Okna 500 deluxe and (1) small awning made by Okna. Installation will consist of removing siding, sealing back of flange with silicone, sealing over the front of flange opening with rubber/butyl tape and making any siding correction such as capping if needed. Cash price is $11,842.00 ($696 per opening) or financed price same as cash is $12,593.00. ($740 per opening) with lifetime warranty on installation and transferable lifetime warranty on the window.

We have another company coming out to price the Anderson 400 series that my wife seems to like and I plan on having a third quote from the Sunrise dealer since they seem to be apples to apples with the Okna’s. From what I’ve read do you still consider the pecking order to be:

Oknas
Sunrise
Anderson

Rob - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rob, it sounds like you are going about this project in exactly the right manner. I think the first bid is fair in price and I would be interested to see how it stacks up to the Sunrise. I’m assuming their standard Sunrise window, which is a good comparison to the Okna 500, although one or to upgrades to the Sunrise is probably a fairer apples-to-apples match up.

The Andersen 400 is the best model they sell and quite a nice window. I don’t think it can measure up to the Okna or Sunrise in terms of energy efficiency, but the window itself is nice looking and a well-made product.

I think all things being equal I would rank them as you did: Okna 500, Sunrise Standard Vinyl Frame, Andersen 400 Series. But honestly I don’t think there is much difference between the first two and I only rate the 400 Andersen lower because it’s wood clad (the doors come in an all vinyl option), and although wood is beautiful, it doesn’t hold up over time like vinyl.

I think you need to get your bids and then really take a look at who is doing the install, how thoroughly are they going to perform the work and who stands behind their work. This is what might tip the balances for me in terms of the Okna Sunrise choice. All in all, though, I think you have three great options in front of you.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna Windows Cost

My wife only wanted 2 sunshades as she wanted the front of house to be uniform. She was okay with 2 in back in master bath. So, Sunrise dealer was willing to go down to $6,550 for that. I was going to go with the Sunrise and scheduled an appointment to sign. When I told Okna dealer that I was going to go with Sunrise, he offered to drop the price $750. So the new total for Okna package is $6,110. I decided to sign a contract with Okna dealer yesterday (3 day rescission right in Virginia).

Sunrise dealer was not happy. Then, last night, first contractor who offered Vinylmax Edison for $6,900 called and offered me 10 Berkshire Elite double paned for $4,999 and triple pane for $5,999. I told him I'd think about it to get him off the phone. I didn't see great reviews of Berkshire, so I'll probably stick with Okna 500.

Thanks much for your advice. It saved me $750.

Okna Insul-Tec Series Cost

I have been trying to research replacement windows and have an estimate from B.J. Fitzpatrick for 9 double hung windows for a little over 13k which I thought might be high. In the process of researching replacement windows I have seen several recommendations for the Okna Insul-Tec but I have seen an awful lot of complaints about the seal breaking on the Okna Insul-Tec. I realize that could partially be because of poor installation which also worries me. What is your feeling about that?

Deb - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Deb, this sounds quite high to me in terms of per window cost, but the only way to really suss this out is with a couple more bids to compare it to. In terms of seals breaking, this wouldn't be due to installation. All windows get some bad press, the more popular the brand, the easier it is to find poor reviews due to the volume of reviews. In general, I hear of less issues with Okna than with almost any vinyl window out there. They seem to be good with their warranties too, although this also means that you have to keep in touch with the installer in case something does go wrong 8, 9, 10 years down the road.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


OKNA Insul-Tec vs Marvin Infinity

How would you compare Marvin Infinity double hung windows to OKNA Insul-Tec? We are looking to replace our 25 yr old vinyl windows and have received a price of $13,500 for the Marvin Windows. Have not received a price for the OKNA yet? Thanks!

Alice - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

The Marvin Infinity is considered a high quality fiberglass window that is quite well built and attractive as windows go. The Okna Insul-Tec is a high quality vinyl windows that is quite well built and is, like many vinyl windows, decent enough to look at. The Okna should provide better performance, but the Infinity is generally seen as the nice looking of the two. I would think the Okna 500 series would be 20% less than the Infinity.

Either way, these two windows are both considered very good.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna Insultec Deluxe Prices

Down to two estimates to replace 35 windows. 15K for Preservation and 18K for Okna Insultec Deluxe. Are the Okna windows worth the additional 3K? Plan on reselling home in 7 years. Thanks.

Steve - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steve, the Okna Insultec Deluxe is completely worth the extra $3K, no question about it. I hate the idea that you are selling your house in seven years though. The Okna 500 performance numbers are so much better than Preservation Windows, which is an overpriced window in my opinion. If it were me, I would definitely go with the Okna Insul Tec, it's one of the best vinyl windows you can buy.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 500 Series Window Pricing

Hi there, I've gotten several bids, but the best of the bunch is for full frame replacements. He is going to replace all of the exterior wood trim (using a pic material) and all new interiorreal wood trim. I like this approach, but it will be more of an inconvenience for us. He wants to use the Okna 500 series windows and said he would charge $660 per window.

Rowland - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rowland, I think that an Okna 500 full window replacement, along with all of the exterior and interior wood trim replacement for $660 a window is a pretty smoking deal. I think you should jump on that.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna Insul-Tec Costs vs Elements

I've been researching windows for months using pamphlets and scraps of paper I picked up at a spring home show here in the Atlanta area. I've had four estimates from different companies, including one on the Okna Insul Tec and the Soft-Lite Elements. Couldn't really make sense of anything until I stumbled on your website. The only real difference in pricing (and I'm only doing the front of the house right now--5 windows) was a $225 color match premium that OKNA tacked on per order (not per window, thank goodness). The Soft-Lite offered a good match with my trim at no charge. I appreciate your guidance and will contact my guy (he offered both products) to move ahead with the job using Soft-Lite. Our house is 20 years old and while we had double pane wood windows, it sounds like vinyl will be much more energy efficient!

P.S. Now, where do I start with replacing my front door with sidelights? That's another maze. :-)

Natalie - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Doors might be easier for one simple reason, either you have a custom size (in which case you are limited in your options) or you have a standard size. In the case of a standard size, go to Soft-Lite and see what they offer. If they don't offer sidelights, they may know a company that does. If they don't, I'd start calling all the local companies that you find in a google search and find out who offers the sidelights, probably not many unfortunately. Ten phone calls and 1 hour should get you at least a couple of options. In terms of cost, you might be subject to the few who offer the window.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 500 Windows Prices vs Harvey

We are replacing 35 windows in our Pennsylvania house. My contractor wants me to go with Harvey Tribute, which I like. It had lots of features and options, and he quoted me at $390 per window installed. Some of my windows are small, so that's why the per window price is lower than normal I guess. The Okna 500 was $455 per window and the 800 was $490 per window.

Max - Homeowner in Pennsylvania - from 2012

[Contractor Response]

Hi Max, this is a tough answer because the Harvey Tribute is a good window. The Okna 500 is an excellent window and the 800 is the best vinyl window on the market in my opinion. If it were me I would stretch into as much as I could, but again there is nothing wrong at all with the Tribute series.

Okna 700 Windows Prices


Okna Casement Window Cost

I have a question on pricing for the Sunrise Windows. Unfortunately I cannot say for sure which line it is but would guess it is the Restoration. The rep told me they customize the window by having an additional layer of insulation added to the third layer that would normally be left empty. I need a total of 10 windows, replaced, all casements (4 total openings, 2 fixed pitcure windows, 8 operating). I would be getting a dark oak interior, and a tan outside trim with dark brown moulding. I was quoted $10,500 which is for full replacement. Price includes everything except for re-staining the new oak trim on the inside. Windows range in size from 96" x 58" to 38x34". Price seems high, however I have a price for OKNA 700 series for $9600 which is for inserts. We live in the metro Racine, WI area. Thanks!

Paul - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Paul, I'd put the Okna 700 and Sunrise Restorations on par with one another. So assuming that the Okna 700 price is fair market value then the Sunrise quote is high (I know I just stated the obvious but let's keep going here). You might want to get another bid to see if you can get a number lower than the Okna and then perhaps go back to the Okna dealer and see if they will match it. They probably won't, but if you ask them to match it, they will hopefully give you their best price, which might be lower than the one you have now.

Okna 800 Windows Prices


Editor's Okna 800 EnviroStar Windows

The Okna 800 EnviroStar window is regarded as one of the top vinyl windows available. The 800DX is very popular, with a frame thickness of 0.80, which makes it very durable and strong. The U-value is 0.25, and Air Infiltration is 0.01, which literally cannot be beat in terms of the AI numbers. Impressive. Okna 800 is one of the highest priced vinyl windows on the market and with good reason, it's my favorite. This is the window I would put in my house if I could afford it. The Okna 800 is available in a variety of colors and finishes for both the interior and exterior, plus some excellent hardware options including brass. Comparable to the Soft Life Elements series.


Okna 800 Quote

Hi Dane, long time no talk to! Wanted to give you an update. Attached are the 19 Okna 800 windows I will soon be contracting for. Total cost including installation: $13,980.

I believe I am getting great windows at a great cost by a window installer I like and respect. He is very knowledgeable and respected in the industry as well as customers. Thoughts?

Suzanne - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Suzanne, I took a look at the bid you received and I thought it looked great based on everything that it includes. You've done your due diligence and I think you have found an excellent solution!

Okna 800 vs Alside Mezzo

Would like your opinion on a price quote we received for 17 Okna 800 windows. 4 of these windows will have the interior wood laminate finish. 2 of the 4 will have a bronze exterior finish with 2 tone grids (GBG).

We really like the Okna but $14,400 installed seems a bit high. Appreciate your thoughts - have learned a lot from your site which has really helped us in this process.

We also looked at Alside Mezzo and Softlite but didn't like the aesthetic as much.

Emily - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Emily, it's hard to speak to how fair the quote is without having anything to compare it to -- like the Mezzo and Soft-Lite (model?) quote. This will tell me a lot and allow me to give you a better assessment. Is the bronze exterior a custom color, this can add quite a bit to the price. The Okna 800 is an excellent window, much better than the Mezzo and better than all but the Soft-Lite Imperial LS< and Elements. The more bids you get, the clearer the Okna bid will be, but the 800 is going to be one of the most expensive vinyl windows out there, but also one of the best.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 800 vs Vytex Potomac

I have quotes on 11 windows. All pricing includes installation and debris removal. They are:

Okna 500 series deluxe - 5200

Vytex Fortis - 5450

Okna 800 deluxe- 5850

Vytex Potomac- 5850

Wonder what you think of the Vytex vs Okna and the value of the upgrades of each. Thanks very much. Learned a lot on this site.

Dave - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dave, the Vytex Potomac is is very good window, but the Okna 800 Deluxe is the clear winner. The Okna 500 is also very good. The Fortis is at the bottom of this grouping, but still not a bad window. The 800 though is the way to go and that's a very good price to boot!

We are looking to replace 20 windows in our home - we currently have the original Andersen windows (wood) from the 1991 construction of our home. We have had a multitude of window sales/installers in and out of our home in the last several weeks and our heads are spinning - we like the idea of composite, wood is great but not a requirement (goal is energy efficiency in both hot and cold months); high quality vinyl is OK - we really want double-hung...

Here is a sampling of what we are considering (windows and installation):

Andersen by Renewal - $36,000

Andersen 400 Woodrite Series (Home Depot) - $33,000

Global Tech/gtech 12 - $16,000

BFRich Cabernet - $13,000

Okna 800 Enviro-star - $10,000

If this were me, it would be an absolute no brainer -- the Okna 800 is probably one of the top 3 vinyl windows on the market. Frankly I'm VERY surpirsed how low that price is -- I'm almost suspect of it.

Here is what I would do, I would call the Okna rep and see what it would cost to switch to the interior laminates -- Okna makes a pretty awesome looking laminate, which means you get a pretty darn realistic looking "wood window," but with all of the benefits of vinyl. BTW, this window will blow the doors off of any composite window out there (or wood for that matter) -- the only one that comes close is the Okna Starmark... The Okna laminates come in natural wood, cherry or cognac. Check out their website for sample colors and also ask the rep how you can see the laminates in person so you can get a sense of how the laminate looks.

Okna 800 Windows Cost

We received a quote for Okna 1800, 800, and 500 series at a price of $1001.00, $941.00, and $861.00 respectively per window installed with grids. The window size is 33 X65 The glass is low E, double pain with argon gas (triple for the 1800) series. Base on other quotes I have been seeing on your site (around 600 to 650) this seems quite high. Do you agree or am I missing something here? Thanks for your help.

Lyn, at first glance it does seem high, but there are plenty of potential reasons for that having to do with the installation portion of the project. The install can greatly affect the true market cost of any project. The way to determine whether the bid is high or competitive is to get a few more.

Try the mid range series from Soft-Lite, Sunrise, HiMark, Polaris, Zen and Kensington. I'm not quite sure what's in your areas but hoepfully local companies carry one or more of these brands. Get the bids and breakdown what the per window cost is -- one of the other benefits of this approach is that cheaper bids can provide you with leverage to take back to the company who sells the window that you really want and ask for a lower price!

Okna 1800 Windows Prices


Okna 1800 Window Costs

We are replacing 28 builder grade windows. We are in the Mid-Atlantic region. We have quotes from 2 contractors for either Provia Aspect or Okna 800 series. Both quotes are similar, around $24,000. From what I've read on this site, you seem to prefer Okna but there's not alot of info on Provia. Is it comparable?

The Okna contractor also offered the Okna step up to 1800 series for $27,000. If we go with Okna, is it worth the extra $3000 to get the top line model? I appreciate your input. Your site has been helpful. Thanks.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Carol, I know some about ProVia, but not a ton. They are certainly a less talked about and less used window than Okna. The ProVia Aspect isn't even their top line, the Endure Series is their top-of-the-line window, if I'm not mistaken. So based on those factors alone, I would say the Okna is going to be the one I would opt for, unless there is something else that would sway the balance to the ProVia -- incredible installation teams or something of this ilk.

In terms up upgrading to the 1800 triple pane Okna, I don't think you need to -- at that point, you are paying almost $1000 per window, which is really quite high.

The Okna 800 EnviroStar is an excellent option all around. You may want to get a bid from another company on more of a mid range vinyl window and then use that bid to see how much the Okna rep will come down on his price. Or use the ProVia bid and tell the Okna rep that the ProVia rep was willing to go down to $20K and if he was able to get close to that price, you are all ready to sign. (A little white lie that might save you a couple thousand dollars...)

Okna Starmark Windows Prices


Okna 900 Starmark Windows

The Okna Starmark window has a thick frame, which makes for a strong and durable window, but also means less glass area. It is considered one of the best composite frames, but home owners with smaller window openings might prefer something with more glass. This model is comparable to a Renewal By Andersen, although the Okna often gets better reviews at a lower price. See more Renewal By Andersen reviews.


Okna Starmark Window Prices

We have quotes for Sunrise Restorations windows installed by a local contractor with excellent reviews, and Renewal by Andersen. Trying to decide between the two. I like the look of the RBA with real wood veneer a bit better, but the Sunrise with faux wood finish is good, and almost matches with our woodwork. There would be 2 picture windows, 6 casements that open, 3 that don't, and 2 very small picture windows. The Sunrise quote is @ $12,000. The RBA is $17,000 and then another $1500-$2000 for the staining if we don't do it ourselves. Quality and performance wise- do you think the RBA is any better and worth the extra money? Or is it more about looks?

We also have a quote for Starmark windows with the faux wood finish. We had liked how stout the window seemed, and all the insulation in the frames. The wood color wasn't as close of a match as the Sunrise, but probably doable. The corner welds weren't as pretty- the diagonal seams stuck out a bit, making it more obvious that it was not wood. Their quote was $20,500. We had ruled them out due to price, but now am not sure. We hope to stay in our home at least another 20+ years.Any thoughts about the 3 quotes? Also, do you represent some of these companies? I can't really tell from the website. So I guess what I am asking is do you have a bias, and/or vastly more experience with some brands over others. I don't mean to be offensive, because I have really appreciated your site and all your info.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gail, the quality, performance and construction will be better on the Restorations line than the Renewals. The Starkmark is a bit of a beast, but very well made. However, if it were me I'd stick with the Sunrise Restorations for the $12K, it is one of the very best vinyl windows available.

We don't represent any of these companies so there is no bias on our end. Of course, everyone has their favorite brands -- mine are Sunrise, Okna, Soft-Lite, Polaris, and Kensington.
