Editor's Take On Simonton Window Prices

Simonton prices fall right in the middle of the vinyl window price spectrum. This is a bit of a blanket statement, especially considering the wide variety of window series and models that the company offers. Many of the Series from Simonton are offered in 3 models, so for instance, the Reflections are available in the 5050, 5300 and 5500 Series.

As a general rule of thumb, the mid range window series will provide consumers with the best long term value, although in the case of Simonton, I might have to say that the higher end window model would get my vote.

Simonton manufactures good quality, no frills type of vinyl windows, excellent distribution, and the company has a reputation for good customer support. Their frames run a little thicker than other vinyl window manufacturers, which certainly turns some consumers off. I would strongly suggest that homeowners touch and feel the Simonton windows prior to purchase in order to see and compare the bulkiness of these windows and make sure that you are fine with the overall aesthetics.

Performance wise, Simonton is going to be decent, nothing ground breaking, although upgrading to a better glass package and possibly a sash reinforcement can bring the Simonton nearly up to par with some of the stronger players in the industry.

Simonton Reflections 5050 Window Prices

The Reflections 5050 model is more or less defunct, although some consumers have still said that they've received bids on this model now and again. The 5050 series is essentially the same window as the Simonton Prism Bronze, which can be a bit confusing.

Beginning in 2012, Simonton mothballed the 5050 and rolled out the Asure series. The 5050 S was the company's entry level Reflections model. It was a no frills vinyl window that was actually pretty decent with a few choice upgrades.

The 5050 model has narrow profile, which allows more glass and better viewing. The flipside is a less energy efficienct window. The 5050 window was often well priced for an entry level window and comparable to say Alside Mezzo windows cost.

Simonton 5050 vs. Window World 4000

Hello, I live in New Jersey and need 7 replacement windows. So far, we have two quotes. The Simonton 5050 and the Window World 4000. It includes removal, installation, aluminum capping, one eight-foot slider, and lifetime warranty.

Window World: $549 per window
Simonton 5050: $590 per window

Any help is appreciated

Rony - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

The Simonton model would be my pick of these two, but I think you can actually do better than this for the price. Not sure, but worth a shot. I'd take a look at Ideal windows, which is in your backyard and is very good for the price.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton 5050 Cost Bid

I am replacing eleven vinyl windows, but don't need super high end windows. I have two quotes that I like -- one from a Simonton dealer for $5.2K on the 5050, although he says that with the upgrades he's adding it is equivalent to the 5500.

A local Sunrise dealer gave me a quote on the Vanguard series for $7800.

Clint - Homeowner - from 2018

Simonton 5050 Prices vs. PGT Energy Vue

Hi guys, we have two quotes and I'd love to get one or both of your takes on which is the better deal. Thanks so much!

PGT Energy Vue Winguard

4 Single Hung Windows: $4772

2 Transom Windows: $1437

Simonton 5050 (with upgrades that make it equivalent to the 5500)

4 Single Hung Windows: $2700

2 Transom Windows: $1450

Amy - Homeowner - from 2018

Simonton Prism Bronze Windows Cost

I have two quotes on replacement windows. The first is the Restoration by Sunrise. 6 windows sized 35" x 59". Withith installation, thecost is $8320. The other is the Prism Bronze by Simonton. The 6 windows with grids would be $2974.

Any opinions on these or any other options you can think of is appreciated. I couldn't figure out if I should get additional estimates -- there's a Window World and an Ideal Windows.

Sharon - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Sharon, the bid on the Restorations is in a whole differernt price category. Yes, it's a better window, but that is a crazy jump in price. I would see what they would charge to go from a Prism Bronze to a Prism Platinum. If you could get this for $4K, that would be the much better deal. Yes the Restorations is very good, but not 3x as good.

Simonton Reflections 5300 Prices

The Simonton 5300 window is the mid range Reflections series that offers a stronger frame and features than the Asure model. It is the same window as the Simonton Prism Ultra Gold. In general, the Simonton 5300 series is a nice looking unit that comes standard with an Intercept spacer and ProSolar low-e glass. It is available as a double hung, slider, single double casement, and as a fixed frame window. Comparable to Harvey Classic windows prices.

Dane - Site Editor

Simonton 5300 Series or Soft-Lite Pro

I have two bids for 8 replacement windows in the St. Louis area. One is for the Soft-Lite Pro Series for $4600 and the other is on either the Simonton 5300 ($2800) or the Simonton 5500 series ($3700).

Bernie - Homeowner - from 2018

Simonton Reflections 5300 vs. Alside Mezzo

I have replacement bids from a Simonton dealer on their 5300 Reflections series for $9500. Then I have one for $7500 on the Alside Mezzo. Both bids are for 20 windows and it is only for the windows, but not for installation.

Chris - Homeowner - from 2018

Simonton Reflections 5300 vs PGT 5400

I need to replace 13 windows and I'm deciding between the PGT 5400 and the Simonton Reflections 5300 series. Both bids are around the $10K mark.

Any help is appreciated.

Lenny - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Reply]

LennyI would put these windows on par with one another. Both very decent vinyl window options. If it were me, I would shift from comparing the windows to comparing the companies doing the install. Choose the one with the best reviews, track record and the one that generally gives you the best piece of mind.

Dane - Site Editor, from 2017

Simonton 5300 Series vs Soft-Lite Pro

I have been reading your site and need a little advice. I have a bid on the Soft-Lite Pro or Elements and the Simonton 5300 or 5500 models for 8 double hung windows. (I live in St. Louis btw).

Simonton 5300: $2800
Simonton 5500: $4100 (triple pane)

Soft-lite Pro-LS: $4600
Soft-lite Elements (triple pane): $5300

Len- Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Len, the two bids are both very reasonable. If you can swing it, go with the Soft-Lite Elements in triple pane, basically unbeatable performance numbers and quality. The Simonton 5500 in triple pane at $4100 is very good as well. Honestly, all of these bids are good for what your'e getting.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton Prism Windows Cost

We ordered 2 Simonton Prism Gold windows, which measure 92" x 70" and the other is 59" x 42". They both use tempered glass and the price is$5046.00.

Are these good windows?

Juan - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Juan, that bid is very pricey in my opinion. You should probably be able to get these windows for no more than $1000 each, which would include quite a bit of installation work.

I'd spend some time collecting a few more bids if this were my project. Collect a few more, send them over to me and I'll give you my opinion on what you come up with.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton 5300 Window Prices

We have bids on the Simonton 5300 series for 12 windows. The bid was through Home Depot and came out to $5000. The other bid was a local company on the Great Lakes Lifestyles series. This bid was considerably more at $7500.
Laura - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Laura, the Simonton 5300 and Great Lakes Lifestyles are pretty comparable windows. I'd take a serious look at the Simonton bid, but I'd be wary about HD installation. They don't pay their subcontractors a very good rate and the results can be less than favorable for the consumer. I would make sure that whoever is doing the install has a very solid track record of success.

Simonton Reflections 5500 Window Prices

The Simonton 5500 is the "premium" Reflections series, identical to the Simonton Prism Platinum window. The 5500 is a step up from the 5300 series with a shadow-grooved sash welds, better sill, and slightly sturdier frame. The window comes standard with a Super Spacer and Super 366 glass. It is also a better looking window over the 5300.

The Simonton 5500 window offers lots of options, including an two-tone finish, wood-grain interiors, and a triple pane glass. It can be ordered in many sizes, styles, and finishes. Compare the Simonton 5500 series to the Sunrise Classic.

Dane - Site Editor

Hi Dane and Tim,

The below is a slightly updated email from a message (not sure if it went through), previously sent through your website.

Your thoughtful and kind service to all and specific purchasers is greatly appreciated.

My wife and I live slightly NW of the city of Philadelphia, PA. We have received bids on 20 double hung white vinyl replacement windows (with half height screens), one sliding door and one custom octagonal window. They all come with the recommended "Energy Star - North Central" ratings for our area. The below quotes include installation:

Berkshire Elite -- $12,306.00; lifetime parts and labor.

MI 1650 -- $10,000.00; lifetime parts and 15 years labor.

Okna 800 DX -- $17,644.00; lifetime parts and 2 years labor.

Simonton 5500* -- $12,000.00; lifetime parts and 15 years labor. * Innovo sliding door.

Curious your specific thoughts on the above windows & prices.

Also, would like to know:

a) The advantages of balances that are either: block and tackle or stainless steel inverted coils (manufacturers of each system claim their's is the best);

b) How concerned we should be with:

Air Leakage ratings that vary from 0.01CFM to 0.19CFM;

U Factor ranging from .26 to .29;

SHGC ranging from .27 to .37;

VT ranging from .51 to .55;

c) For the capping the advantages of aluminum versus aluminum coated with PVC (with or without woodgrain)?

Thank you!

Kevin - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kevin, the best window of the bunch is the Okna 800DX, which is basically the best in the business. The best deal there is the Simonton 5500 at $12,000. You'll have to make the call what price you feel comfortable, but the 5500 Reflections is a good vinyl window. You could always add an upgrade like a better glass package or sill reinforcement to lower that U-factor and add a bit of strength to the frame--totally up to you.

Air leakage is important. The Mezzo fudges a bit to get to their .04, which is one of the reasons I don't typically recommend the window. (The Berkshire Elite is the Alside Mezzo window btw.) All the performance data is important, but those small differences in U-factor, SHGC, and VT won't make a huge difference. The 5500 gets decent but not great AI, but overall is a well made window that usually stands strong over time.

If I were doing the capping, I'd go with a PVC coating myself, but the price difference would have to make sense of course.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton 5500 Window Quote

We have a four bedroom house and we need to replace 4 horizontal sliding windows. We collected 8 bids, but are now down to these four.

Anlin Catalina Model: $2795
Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Model: $2860
Simonton 5500 Model: $2870
Zen Nirvana Model: $3090

Len - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Len, I'd go with the Anlin quote. Actually the Amerimax and Simonton are so close, it's a tough call. I like the Simonton 5500 model myself.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton Reflections 5500 Series Bid

We have 14 windows total to replace, most of them sliders and fixed windows.
Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Model: $7.5K
Simonton Reflections 5500 Model: $8.5K
Zen Nirvana Model: $8.6
Soft-Lite Timeless Model: $12.7K
Sunrise V-Class Model: $15K

Alan - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Alan, I'd say the first pick should be the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait, second pick should be the Zen Nirvana and the third pick should be the Simonton Reflections 5500.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton 5500 Price Bid vs. Alside Mezzo

I live on Long Island, New York and am collecting quotes for window replacements. I have 19 bids and I've received a bid for the Simonton 5500 for $12,000 and for the Alside Mezzo for $10600. Still waiting to hear back on the Wincore 7700 series. My contractor is a big fan of the Alside Mezzo and kind of pushing me this direction.


Beth - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Beth, of the two bids you have, the Simonton 5500 for $1400 more than the Alside Mezzo is the better deal in my opinion. The Mezzo is a solid mid range window, but the Reflections 5500 is a top end mid range vinyl window. The Wincore 7700 is virtually on par with the Simonton 5500 so hopefully that helps when you receive that bid.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton 5500 Reflections Price

Hey guys, I had a few estimates from several local companies and was curious to get your read on the bids. There are 28 windows in all and the prices include installation. Thanks a ton!

Gentek Signature Elite 3000 Series: $9600

Simonton 5500 Reflections Series: $13100

Harvey Classics Series: $13440

Soft Lite Imperial LS Series: $16240

Wayne - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Wayne, to be honest, your bids all look good. The price per window you are getting on all of these bids is excellent. You could go any direction and you'd be getting a good deal. If I were staying in the house long term, I'd go with the Soft Lite Imperial LS Series. The Simonton 5500 Reflections Series would be my pick over the Harvey Classic. If you were flipping the house or leaving in under 8 years, I might be tempted to go with the Gentek Signature Elite 3000 Series.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton 5000 Price Bid

I have two bids for 11 windows that I'm trying to compare. The first is the Earthwise Insulator 700i and the second is for the Simonton 5000, The bids are $6700 and $6800, respectively.

Michele - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michele, I think I'd go with the Simonton 5000 over the Earthwise Insulator. I feel more comfortable recommend

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton Reflections 5500 Price Quote

We need to replace 12 casements and have three good bids (I think).

Vytex Potomac: $9004

Simonton Reflections 5500: $8792

Reliabilt 3900: $5496

John - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

John, the best deal would be the Potomac, then the Simonton. I would skip the Reliabilt unless you are looking to be out of there relatively soon.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton Reflections 5500 Window Costs

We have 16 windows that need to be install in our remodel and I don't know which is the better deal.

Sunrise Classic Model: $550 each

Simonton Reflections 5500 Model: $470 each

Ryan - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ryan, the better window is the Sunrise, but obviously its more expensive. Both are good windows. The question I'd ask myself would be is it worth $1280 more for the Sunrise. Tough to say actually. Maybe look at the installation companies as the deciding factor.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton Reflections 5500 Pricing

We're replacing twenty windows. Thus far, here are our bids and the manufacturers

Simonton Reflections 5500: $11,000
Great Lakes ComfortSmart: $10,000
Sunrise Essentials: $14,200
Soft-lite Classic: $13,500

Cindy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Cindy, your less expensive price quotes are the ones I would seriously consider. The Essentials window is the least desirable bid. You could go with the Soft-Lite, but the Reflections 5500 bid is probably the best value of the group.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton 5500 Quote vs. Harvey Classics

I need to replace 21 windows with grids an with aluminum capping on the exterior of my windows. So far, we have gotten 3/4 bids, all from reputable companies in the area.

Simonton 5500 vs. PGT 5400 Series

I have a quote for 20 windows and have bids from Silverline, Simonton and PGT. Here they are:
Simonton 5500: $11,500
PGT 5400: $11,070

Andersen Silverline: $7,250

Meredith - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

The Silverline windows are junk, I'd throw out that bid. The Simonton 5500 and PGT 5400 are close in quality, but I think I'd give the edge to the Simonton.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton Relections 5500 vs. Okna 500 InsulTec

I have two quotes, both from A-rated window contractors. This is on nine windows with installation.

Okna 500 InsulTec Deluxe: $4700 with grids

Simonton Relections 5500: $4595 with grids

How do these two stack up?

Susie - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Susie, both bids are quite good, but the Okna is the better of the two, definitely worth an extra $100.

PGT 5400: $12,660

MI 1650 Series: $20,300
Provia Aspect Series: $22,800

Chris - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chris, the ProVia Aspect would be my first choice, followed by the Simonton 5500. I would pass on the MI bid personally.

Simonton 5500 Pricing vs Sunrise Standard Windows

I have a quote for 13 windows, as well as 2 slider doors.

Standard Sunrise (Atrium 332 Doors): $11,300

Simonton 5500 (Profinish Contractor Doors): $9,300

Rabe - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rabe, the the Sunrise window is better than the Simonton 5500 window. However, the Simonton Profinishp door is better than the Atrium door. I might stick with the lower bid though if you feel like the installer will do a good job. The 5500 window is a solid model.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton 5500 Window Costs

Hi Dane, I’ve read lots of your site reviews and wanted to get your take. I have 20 windows that I want replaced with double hungs and colonial grids.

Pella 350: $11,400

Vytex Fortis: $13,100

Simonton 5500: $11,900

Thanks in advance.

Greg - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Greg, the Vytex Fortis is the best window of the lot -- U value .26, SHGC .29, VT .53, AI .05. After that, I'd say the Simonton 5500 model. I would toss the Pella 350 model, they make a very good wood window, but their vinyl windows are overpriced.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017

Simonton 5500 vs. Preservation And Slocomb

Hi, I have a project that requires 11 replacement windows, all double hungs in white. We live in Raleigh North Carolina.

Simonton 5500: $5000 (includes outside aluminum capping)

Preservation Window: $6000 (includes outside aluminum capping)

Slocomb Harmony 143 Series: $4850 (includes outside aluminum capping)

Sunrise Window: $6900 (includes outside aluminum capping)

I'd love to hear your thoughts or insight. Thanks so much in advance!

Brandon - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brandon, the Simonton 5500 bid looks pretty solid to me. Depends on the reputation of the dealer doing the work though. If he has a good track record, this would be my first choice. If you are fine with the extra $1900, Sunrise is a great brand, better than Simonton. That's a big price difference though. If you can swing it financially, then I'd say go Sunrise over the Simonton.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Simonton 5500 Refelctions Costs

I'm in Maryland and our contractor said our windows are leaking lots of air. We have 19 in total. He wants to replace them with the Wincore 5400 series at a cost of 10K. He also suggested Simonton 5500, which would cost 14K.

Lucy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

The Simonton 5500 series is quite good, but probably not $4K more. The Wincore 5400 series decent, but if you are going to go with the Wincer I'd suggest bumping up to the 7700 series. See if he can price these out. The Wincer 7700 and Simonton 5500 series are on par with one another and either one would serve you well -- assuming your contractor knows how to put in a window :)

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton 5500 Cost Quote

Is $4325 reasonable for the Simonton 5500 series. I have 4 windows that measure 83 x 58, 71 x 58, 71 x 47, and 83 x 47.

Jon - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jon, the bid seems high unless you have some real installation work that needs to be done. I'd definitely recommend getting some additional bids to test out whether this bid is fair market or just too high.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton 5500 vs Ply Gem Pro Series

We have a quote on the Ply Gem Pro with a bronze exterior, Low-e glass, screens, and argon gas. The price includes installation, haul away, clean up and aluminum wrapping. We have a quote from a Simonton dealer on the 5500 that is roughly $1000 more than the Ply Gem Pro.

Tracy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Tracy, the Simonton 5500 is the better window than the Ply Gem Pro in my opinion. Stronger frame, better components and features. I would pay the extra $1000 if this were my project. This is contingent on the fact that the Simonton dealer has a good solid reputation in the area and has a solid track record to point to.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton 5500 vs Vytex Grandview

Getting pricing on windows is incredibly difficult. We have 14 double hung windows and 1 picture window that need to be swapped out. My house is from the 1950s and we still have the original windows. So far, we have a quote from home depot, but I already chucked hat out because I know they don't do their own installations. I have another quote on the Simonton 5500 for $8,500.00.

The other quote I have is from Windows Nation on their Grandview Series window that was $8,900.

The Grandview windows seems like the better of the two but frankly both quotes are way more than I wanted to spend.

Carl - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Carl, the Simonton and Grandview windows are both pretty darn good, I think I'd put the Grandview above the 5500, but not by a lot.

If you are staying in your home long term, than paying $600 a window is not that much. There are probably some better deals out there though and if you want to find those I would just keep getting more and more bids. Eventually, you will find a bid that works for you.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton 5500 Pricing vs Champion

I recently had a bid from a Simonton dealer, as well as a Champion and Don Young bid.The Simonton dealer told us the Impressions 9800 window wasn’t a very good window for North Texas. Instead he recommended the Simonton Reflections 5500, which is considerably less expensive than the Champion quote.

The reviews however seem just sort average, that what do I know. He quoted us on the Reflections 5500 with ProSolar Shade, LowE3/Argon, 366 Glass, Supercept Spacer, and tempered glass where applicable. We have 15 windows and the bid was $8,370.

Jodie - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jodie, I've never heard anyone say the Impressions 9800 was not right for the Texas climate, but I also don't live in Texas so I'd probably listen to his advise. Champion makes a good window and I might pay the extra $1000 for that window. However, if the Simonton dealer seems to know his stuff and you feel comfortable using his services, then I think that's a good choice. Nice window.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton 5500 Reflection Prices

Hi, my contractor is installing 23 Simonton premium Reflections windows. His price was $13,000. I did get a Home Depot bid for the Vantage Point 6100. That was $14,800.

Is the Vantage Point series a better window than the Reflections 5500?

Steve - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Steve, the Simonton Reflections 5500 is the superior window over the VantagePointe.

You have a good price quote on the Reflections 5500 series. This is the bid I'd go with if I were you.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton Prism Platinum Prices

We have a bid on nine Simonton Prism Platinum windows for $3400. A Sunrise salesperson quoted us out on Sunrise Single Hung window at more than double the price, $6086. Would love to hear which bid you think is better.

Dave - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Dave, Sunrise makes a very good window, but it's not worth 2x the Simonton Prism Platinum. The Simonton is a well made vinyl window that will hold up well over time with good installation.

Either one is a good window, but I think there is more value in the Simonton bid.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton Prism Platinum Costs

What is a fair price for a project involving replacement of 18 windows. I am considering Simonton Prism Platinum/Reflections 5500.

[Site Editor's Response]

Ana, there are lots of factors that can drive prices up or down on any project so giving you a concrete cost bid is outside of my purview. In general, I'd say the Simonton 5500 series runs $400 to $600 per window. That might put your project in the $7200 - $10,800 range.

Simonton 5500 vs Vytex 3000 and Andersen 100 Series

I have three quotes and would love to get your opinion. We have 40 windows that need replacing, most of them casements.

Andersen 100 Series: $50,000

Vytex 3300 Series: $37,500

Simonton 5500 Series: $43,500

Jan - Homeowners - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Jan, the Andersen 100 series is a decent window, but it's worth what they quoted it out at. Sometimes, but not always, Andersen is quoted high because of the name itself.

The Vytex 3000 is probably my pick for all of these.

The Simonton 5500 series is also a good option for you in my opinion.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2015

Simonton 5500 Series Cost vs Harvey

I have a quotes on 21 windows txt include colonial grids and exterior aluminum capping. I was curious which one you thought was the best option. These are per window prices.

Simonton Reflections 5500: $500

Harvey Classic Series: $550

HiMark DX400: $585

HiMark DX800: $630

John - Homeowner - from 2010

[Contractor's Response]

John, you have four excellent bids here. The HiMarks are the best and most expensive, but the Reflection 5500s are also quite good and obviously less expensive. I think you just need to figure out your price point and go from there. Personally, I'd go with the HiMark800 if at all possible.

Rob - Contractor - from 2010

Simonton 5500 Windows Cost

I have a quote on 10 Simonton Reflections 5500 series, including installation. Thumbs up on cost, which are per window.

1 three lite slider - $900

3 double hung windows - $530

4 double hung windows: $485

2 picture windows - $430

Total: $5400

Karen - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Karen, that's a good bid for the 5500. I'd try to see if this is the dealers flooring, but you have a good quote.

Simonton Asure Window Prices

The Simonton Asure was introduced in the Spring of 2012. It is essentially a redesigned Simonton 5050 window. The frame profile is thinner than the other Reflections series windows, with 1 inch of glass added to each side. The sash remains the same, although the frame has a cleaner look to it.

The Asure and 5050 share the same sash design, but the Asure is a nicer looking window in general. The Asure doesn't come with many options, but it is a decent enough entry level window. Comparable to Pella 250 window costs.

Simonton Assure vs. the Sunrise Restoration

Tim, I have read many of your reviews and I appreciate all of your insights. My wife and I are replacing 34 windows in our house here in Marietta, GA. We have had quotes on the Sunrise Restorations and the Simonton Assure.

We are trying to figure if the Sunrise Restorations is worth $8K over the Simonton Asure?

We'd like to know your opinion on the two windows.

Mandy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mandy, the Sunrise Restoration is a much better window than the Simonton Asure. Then again $8000 is a lot of money. The Restoration is one of the very best vinyl/fiberglass windows on the market, while the Asure is an entry level window. It's a tough comparison because they are so vastly different.

I think it needs to be based on how long you plan to be in your house. Forever home -- Sunrise Restorations. Moving in a handful of years -- Simonton Asure.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Simonton Asure Pricing

Hey Dane, I've been checking out the online reviews on the site and are currently debating b/n an entry level Atrium and the Simonton Assure. We are replacing 8 double hungs; Atrium windows bid is $3200, while the Asure bid is $4800. We live near D.C. Thanks!

Andy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andy, Atrium makes a pretty budget window. Their premium models are decent mid range windows, but that's what I'd stick with from them. The Asure is the better window for sure. That's a pretty steep cost though for an entry level window from Simonton.

You may want to look at our best windows page to see other recommendations. If you live near D.C., Okna windows has a dealer and their lower end windows are actually pretty awesome a big step up from the two brands you're looking at now.

Simonton VantagePointe Window Prices

The Simonton VantagePointe 6000 is made and marketed exclusively through Home Depot. The VantagePointe window comes standard with dual air locks, tilt latches, a beveled sash, a coil balance system, and extruded lift rails. The series can be ordered in 7 exterior and 7 interior color options, including darker colors that are tough to find in this category of vinyl window. The VantagePointe isn't a fancy window and performance is pretty middling, but in general it offers some decent value for the price.

I'm not a big fan of how HD subcontracts out their installation so make sure to vet the installers and make sure they have a solid track record of success before you go with HD installation.

Simonton 6100 Windows Quote

Hi Dane, we live outside Houston, near Katy, TX. We need 16 double hung windows replaced.

We got a quote for Simonton 6100 windows for 13,400ish.

We want to get two other quotes as well for comparable windows. Is Window world an equivalent product?

Have you heard of Milestone replacement windows?

Thoughts? Recommendations?

MJ - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

That bid sounds kind of high to me. I’d keep looking. I’m always wary of Window World, unless you are moving in 8 years or under. Their products, MI windows, are pretty entry level. The Simonton windows are better than this. I have never heard of Milestone replacement windows.

I would get a bid from NT on their Energy Masters, Presidential or Executive series.

I would get a bid from Don Young on either their aluminum or vinyl windows. Their aluminum windows are quite good.

I would search for a Zen dealer in your area and get a bid from them.

Finally, I would get a bid from Milgard on their Hermosillo series.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton 6500 Series Cost

Here are my facts. 10 openings, some sliders and others casements. The 6100 series with no color changes is $9,250 and the 6500 $10,800. With the Energy Star features, the 6500 is $11.350. With a frame color change but no energy star, the 6500 is $14,000.

Redding - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ford, I'm not a big fan of the Pella 250 series, but that's about the max of what I'd consider paying for the number of windows you have. The Simonton 6100 series is a better window for sure, but that just seems like a lot to pay for that series.

Pella 250 Series: $18.8K

Simonton 6100 Series: $12K

Justin - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Justin, the idea of paying $1000 per window for the Pella 250 series is crazy. It's not a high quality vinyl window in my opinion and certainly not worth $1K per window.

The Simonton 6100 is a pretty decent vinyl window, but that's not a cheap bid either at $666 per window.

I'd look at some additional options if I were you. Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris all sell an entry level window that will be better than these two.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton 6100 vs. Vytex Potomac hp

Vytex Potomac hp: $565
Simonton 6500: $800

Gerard - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gerard, congrats on getting all of the bids, that is a great way to get the lowest price. There are two bids that stand out to me; the Vytex Potomac and Soft-Lite Pro bids. The Potomac hp is the best window of the bunch and one of your lowest bids. This is what I would go with, assuming the installer has a good reputation and reviews.

Simonton 6100 Series Costs

Hello, we've received a Home Depot quote for 1 patio sliding door and 23 6100 windows. The bid was $18,559, but with a 15% discount they are running it would lower the total to $15,775.

Olga - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Olga, there are a number of 6100 series. There is the VantagePointe from Simonton, there is an Atrium 6100 and a Ply Gem 6100 single hung.

I'm not a huge fan of Atrium and in terms of Ply Gem I usually recommend sticking with the Pro or Premium models.

I will assume however that you are referring to the Simonton 6100 VantagePointe since it is the HD model they sell. The VantagePointe is an okay vinyl window with okay performance data to back it up. It is nowhere near the best window out there, but it's not a bad window by any means.

I'm going to assume that the patio door is $1800, which puts us at roughly $14,000, which means you are $610 per window completely installed.

For a window that you should be able to purchase for roughly $200 to $250 for a normal sized window, yes I think on the face of it this bid sounds high. Now, I have no idea what size windows you are buying, or the installation requirements so this may account for that extra cost.

I think you should absolutely get a couple/few more bids to see and feel a few more windows, and to see the range of prices for your particular project. Get the bids and send the basics over to me and I'm happy to give you my two cents. Check out our recommended brands and do a quick search to see if they are sold by any local companies. Then have those companies come out and give you a bid.

Simonton VantagePointe Bid

I have a ranch home, standard installation, single hung windows, and no issues (that's what all the quoters have told me). Wood has never been an option, but good to know. HD was here yesterday and gave a bid of $14950 installed using the 6100 Vantage Point - he said that was the middle of good, better, best vinyl window. Never heard of it, but he said that's what they've been selling. Did talk with some installers (who happen to also install of HD). They said they'd install for $100 a window - we're just waiting for a bid on the window costs. They called from my inquiry from Home Advisors.

Thanks for the great service you do for home owners. If you have any opinions on the 6100's, let me know. Take care.

Sue - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sue, the Simonton VantagePointe is just okay, not the window I would honestly keep looking...start calling the Lowes, Home Depot, Dixieline in your area and start getting pricing on the windows only. Ask each guy what the best vinyl window they carry is and get the price.

Get a low-e glass and a reinforced meeting rail if possible (this is an upgrade that they should be able to order). I don't see you paying more than $350 a window for normal sizes for a decent window -- Milgard Tuscany, Andersen 100...(most of the windows they sell in these big box stores are crappy so if you are going this route, you need to be selective.)

The $100 per window is the average industry cost for a normal install. So this makes sense. Make SURE that the installer has good reviews and knows what he's doing.

Again, we're at the $450 to $500 per window cost in this scenario with a local installer ordering the windows and bringing them to your house. That's $8500 if my math is right.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017

Home Depot Simonton Pricing

Hi Dane, we live in Houston and need to replace 9 windows. One is from Lowes on the Pellas 250 series and other is from Home Depot on the Simonton Vantage window. The Pella quote was $4700 fully installed, while the Simonton quote was $11,300 fully installed. These are such big huge price differences that I'm a little confused. Should I even consider th Simonton quote since it's so high? I did get a quote from Renewal By Andersen which was $3K more than the Simonton.

We like the interior colors on the Simontons slightly better.


Darrel - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Darrel, Simonton makes a nice window, but that bid sounds super high to me. Simonton windows should never be anywhere close to Renewal bids, not because Renewal is that much better, but they charge outrageous prices. It sounds like Simonton does too in this case. There are times when custom sized windows can really drive up prices and perhaps this is what happened here.

I don't love Pella vinyl windows though, and I don't love Lowes installation. If you do go with a big box store, see if you can find your own installer to do the work.

Texas definitely has some options -- try Don Young windows, Milgard and NT windows. All three should have dealers in your area.

Simonton 6500 Costs vs Walsh And Okna

Hi, I used your advise and collected four estimates for my window project in Green Bay Wisconsin. I received the quotes, but now I need help sorting through all of them.

About the project: we plan to live in our home for 25 or so years, we are going to replace all of the windows in our home, which means a total of 17 windows. All of these measurements are Width x Height. We have 9 windows that are 34 3/4" x 48 1/2", 2 windows that are 34 3/4" x 62 1/2", 4 windows that are 24 3/4" x 38 1/2" two of which have to be tempered glass, large picture window that is 60 1/2" x 62 1/2" and a transom window right above it that is 60 1/2" x 23 1/2".

The main reason for replacing the windows is because of a pretty bad mold problem on our homes original wood windows. We have a big problem with water on the glass and wood frame and the occasional ice buildup on some of the windows. The house is about 8 1\2 years old, pretty tight except for the windows and about 40% humidity which kind of goes up and down some depending on how well our home's main exhaust fan is working (which our builder told us to run during the winter months to keep the humidity level down).

Now, for the estimates:

1.) Walsh Tundra 6000 double hung and Tundra 6700 picture windows with their Tundra Thermal Performance Package #4 triple pane vinyl replacement window in their basic white color. No grids or special colors/laminates. The sales and install is by Exquisite Windows and Doors, LLC. at a quoted price of about $16,200 installed.

2.) Okna series 900 Starmark double hung triple pane composite replacement windows with the upgraded deluxe package in their basic white color and no grids. The sales and install is by AHT, Inc. at a quoted price of about $32,300 installed. (Side note: AHT does not carry any other window model than the Starmark series and they claim the Starmark window was mostly designed by them (AHT) and they brought it to Okna for the manufacturing.)

3.) Next is Tundraland, Inc. for their Tundraland series double-hung triple pane vinyl replacement windows in their basic white color and install done by Tundraland at a quoted price of about $25,000 installed. They are at "".

4.) Simonton 6500 series VantagePoint double hung double pane vinyl replacement window quoted by The Home Depot and installed by a Home Depot contractor. The price is their BEST replacement value of $13,844. They did provide a “GOOD” and “BETTER” choice of windows but those were pretty basic windows which I just eliminated right away.

I really like the Starmark series but the price seems way out of line (As does the Tundraland estimate) and the sales/installation company might have no competition in selling the Starmark series in Wisconsin. Am I missing anything or is the value way below the price?

Randy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Randy, the Simonton 6500 VantagePointe is an okay window, but I think you need a better vinyl window than this to handle the winter weather you guys get in Wisconsin.

I agree with you that $32K for 17 windows is just way too much – the Starmark is a very good composite window, but I’m confused how they can justify charging $1900 per window.

I don’t know Tundraland windows, it looks like they make their own windows, but I can’t comment either way on them.

I know that the Walsh Tundra makes a solid vinyl window and that they have a solid reputation in the area – over 40 years in business. This is what I’m leaning towards right now. I’d be interested to hear what the air infiltration on these windows is -- .10 or lower is good, .05 or lower is great.

I sort of think you need a couple more bids (I know you’ve already done four) – for instance the Okna 400 or 500 windows should be less than the Starmark, but they are excellent vinyl windows. Maybe there is an Okna rep. in your area – google “okna windows green bay” and see what you get.

Zen windows (they sell Soft-Lite) or Sunrise might also be available – check to see if any of these three brands are sold in your area and see if you can get a couple more bids from some of these top brands.

It’s a lot of work I know, but with everything going on with your windows, I think it’s worth a little more time. So far, I think that the Walsh bid is the front runner.

Simonton 6100 Cost vs Pella 250

Your web site has been a great help so far. I have a 20 year old home and need to swap out 14 windows. The sashes on many of my existing windows have fogged out. I have 5 bids to choose from.

Pella 250 series from Lowes: $ 7,405

Pella 250 from local dealer: $8,650

Anderson Renewal: $19,293.00

Simonton 6100 from Home Depot: $ 8,730

Ywinco from local dealer: $ 4,340

Andy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andy, your estimates are all over the board. I'll try to go through each one.

The Pella 250 series is not the level of vinyl window I would want in my house. I would recommend you toss this. I don't love Lowes installation either so I would definitely not go through Lowes for the install portion.

The Renewal By Andersen bid is outrageous in general and not worth the money. Viwinco makes a decent window but I agree its so low that something is off base. The company makes a number of models and I'm assuming you are getting the low end window, which I wouldn't recommend. The Viwinco Cambridge is the window I would use through them so go back and check to see if this is the window he wants to install. If it is, check his reviews. If they are good, use him.

The Simonton 6100 Series is a good window, not a great window, but good enough. I would be wary of using their installers though. Like the Pella through Lows, I don't love how these big box stores pay their subcontractors. I might buy the window through them, but I'd find an installer who had a stellar reputation and track record.

Jackie, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS is a much better window than the Simonton. I don't see how Simonton is charging $1250 per window, that's highway robbery. The Imperial LS is the winner by mile, a truly excellent window.

The patio door prices seem really high. Can you try to get a bid from the Soft-Lite dealer on a Soft-Lite door? That must be a huge door for $6500 to $8500. Have you considered a vinyl patio door since you are using vinyl windows. It might cut down considerably on the price you have to pay.

Simonton 6100 Window Costs

I received a bid from Home Depot for $7800 on the Simonton 6100 series. This was for one slider, 10 double hungs, and a 3-lite slider.

I noticed you don't seem to like Home Depot for installation so I found a local installer here in Denver who sells Amerimax. According to your website, these should cost $600 max per window.

What am I missing? HD seems really high for this window.

Kelly - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Kelly, with 12 windows and one three lite slider, the $7800 bid is not outrageous and comes to $650 per window with installation. Our window costs are estimates only and shouldn't be taken as gospel. Truthfully, most window bid are priced by the lineal foot so size makes a huge difference. We can't put that into a price calculator because would be too complicated. I like Amerimax windows, although they will be more expensive then Simonton in most cases. The Amerimax Masters Grande series, which is the company's entry level window, is equal in quality and construction with the Simonton VantagePointe 6100 series.

I think the Simonton VantagePointe window is a decent window. You could buy it from HD and then go out and find your own installer using Angies List or Yelp. Most local companies will come out and give you a bid for the work. Whoever you use, just make sue they have good online reviews and a solid track record of installing windows in the past.

Simonton 6100 Windows Pricing

I got 3 quotes to replace a kitchen slider, a bay window, a bathroom slider and a door wall.

Wallside (local dealer): $6100

Simonton 6100 series (Home Depot): $8200

Pella 250 (Lowes): $4100

We are looking for a decent window/door wall that won't hurt us financially.

Ryan - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Ryan, I would toss the Pella quote, the 250 model is not a great window.

I like Simonton 6100, but it seems overpriced if you are getting it through HD.

Wallside makes a decent window and the price seems right. I would spend time making sure the dealer has a good reputation and track record. If these two criteria are met, then I'd pull the trigger.

Simonton Vantage Point vs Marvin Windows

I have a bid from the Home Depot on 15 Vantage Point 6500 series windows. It looks like there are lots of color options to choose from. I really like a dark oak interior and a prairie style grid. I want to make sure that the faux wood would look okay though.

I also had options for double or triple glazing. The double glazed option was demonstrated for me, but not the triple, so I don't have any real reason to jump for the triple. I had them quote me sliders with these estimated sizes and three double-hungs (27x39").

The quote, including materials, permits, disposal, and labor, and allowing for the $3000 discount, was just under $21,000 for the double pane and just under $23,000 for the triple. Based on what I see on this site that seems pretty high, but I realize that I have pretty large windows here.

The $3000 discount disappears May 4, and I don't like to be rushed for this amount of money. Do you think I need to snap this deal up? (BTW - I do have a salesperson from Marvin's coming out on the 2nd!) I'd be so grateful for any feedback!

Kathleen - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Hi Kathleen, I don't like the whole rushing thing, not when it comes to your home and making a decision that you will be sticking with for the next 20 years (hopefully). I think you need to get some more estimates. Home Depot will always be there and I would guess that their "sale" will happen next month and the month after that. I was under the impression that the VantagePointe was available in a number of colors, but perhaps not in your neck of the woods?

I think you need to try and get an estimate from Sunrise, which I'm pretty sure services Minnesota, although perhaps not all parts. Also try Okna and Soft-Lite and see if there is a dealer in your area. Also try a Simonton dealer, not HD, and get a bid on the Impressions 9800 series and see how they price out.

The quote you got does seem high, those windows sizes are not that big. I'd be curious to see how the Marvin window price quote comes in...let me know and we can go from there!

Simonton Madeira Windows Prices

Simonton Madeira Price Quote

Hello. We are looking to replace all of our windows in our home in Reno, Nevada. We have been shopping around and we’re wondering what your opinion is on these windows.

Amsco Artisan quote was $16,000
Simonton Madeira quote was $20,000.

Julia - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Julia, I consider Amsco a somewhat lower end brand, but the Artisan and Madeira are in the same ballpark in terms of the windows themselves. Personally, I would ask the Simonton dealer if he could match the Amsco quote. He won’t be able to, but he might come down off the price a bit. Then I’d go with the Simonton quote over the Amsco. Better company and overall quality control.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton Madeira vs. Ply Gem 2

We are in Washington state and need 25 new construction windows with some work and wood replacement in the frames and sills. We have been collecting quotes and here is what we have.

Revere Berkshire Elite: $500 per window

Ply Gem 2: $1,200 per window

Simonton Madeira: $1,400 per window

Simonton Madeira vs Milgard Tuscany

Dane, you have helped so much in my decision on windows. I'm in Northern Utah and just had a Simonton dealer out who gave me a Madeira quote on three double hungs and ten horizontal sliders. All the windows are triple pane due to our very cold climate and the total installed cost was $7800.

My other bid was on the Milgard Tuscany, which was $8500. This was for double pane windows, but it does include stucco work on three of the openings.

Also I will get a thousand dollar rebate from the Simonton job, but only $700 from the Milgard, although the specifics of why escaped me.

Mark - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mark, I think this is a tough call. If you like the Simonton dealer and think he will do a good job on the install, this might be my call. I like the triple pane option in your area and like the lower overall price tag, along with the better rebate. The Milgard Tuscany is a good window, but so is the Madeira.

I think either choice sounds good, but the Simonton wins by a nose in my opinion.

Simonton Daylight Max Prices

The Simonton Daylight Max, 7300 series, is sold exclusively through Home Depot. The 7300 Daylight Max uses less frame and allows for more viewing area. The window comes standard with ProSolar low-e glass, argon fills, double-strength glass, and can be ordered in a number of colors and hardware options.

Performance wise, the Daylight Max model in a slider offers a 0.06 air leakage rating, a 0.29 U-factor, a .028 SHGC, and a .54 visible transmittance. All in all, pretty decent energy efficient numbers. The frame is a little thin in my opinion, but it's a good option for more mild climate locations.

Simonton DayLightMax Bid

Hi guys, I have two bids here in the south Bay Area for 9 windows and a patio door. Between these two bids (one for two Milgard options and the other for Simonton), which one would you go with? Thanks in advance. I'm leaning towards either the Trinsic or Daylight Max because I like the bigger glass area.

Simonton DayLightMax Bid: $10K
Milgard Trinsic Bid: $6.5K
Milgard Tuscany Bid: $7K

Maily - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Maily, I personally would go with the Milgard Trinsic myself. The price is low enough to justify going with the Milgard over the Simonton.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton Daylight Max Quote

We live in the desert out here in Phoenix and need to replace our windows. Our home is a stucco outside so to do a full replacement is pretty expensive. We have 14 windows in all, mostly soldiers and single hungs, as well as a patio door.

Ply Gem Pro (retrofit install): $8.7K
Simonton Daylight Max (retrofit install): $9.3K
Anlin Del Mar (retrofit install): $13K
Amerimax Craftsman Portrait (new construction install): $13K

Jonah - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jonah, my own opinion would be Anlin first, and then the Simonton Daylight Max if you want to go the more budget route. This makes more sense if you are not going to be in your home long term. The other question would be what is the cost from Amerimax if they do a retrofit install. Worth a call I think.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton Daylight Max Bid

I have 19 windows and 1 patio sliding door and three estimates so far. Was wondering what you thought of them.

Simonton Daylight Max
U-factor: 0.29
Low-e argon glass

Anlin Del Mar Windows and Malibu Sliding Doors
U-factor : 0.26
Infinit-e plus argon glass

Anlin Catalina Windows and Malibu Sliding Doors
U-factor: 0.27
Infinit-e plus argon glass

Sven - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sven, I'd probably go with the Anlin quote for $11K. The Catalina and Malibu series are both high quality. The Simonton Daylight Max is quite a good window series with thin frames and lots of light, but it just isn't the same quality as the Anlin. Spend the extra $1300 in my opinion.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton Daylight Max Pricing

We have 3 bids on 25 windows and 2 sliding patio doors; one is a sliding and one french. 18 of the windows are single hungs, while the rest are picture windows.

Milgard Styleline: $16,980

Simonton 7300 Vinyl Windows

Hello, I have received awritten bid to install Simonton 7300 vinyl windows, all with LOE3/Argon gas, title 24 spacers. 2 lifetime warranty, glass & screen breakage inc. 1 patio door, 7 windows. Price is $5276

Should I ask more questions? Widows are different sizes, one is a small bathroom, they are sliders. Does the frame style change cost? Does this bid seem high? Before I get other bids, am I missing something, I do not want to have hidden or unexpected charges or add-ons but am 1st time remodel on a 1971 condo that had all original. Regards.

Portia - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Portia, I don't think that bid is unusually high, but it isn't the cheapest I've seen either. You really need a few more bids to compare it to. The Simonton 7300 window is a middle of the road vinyl window so I'd like to see you get a few more to compare. Frame style shouldn't change cost, but it could if the model you like only comes in one frame type.

The bid that you receive from a contractor out company should not have hidden costs. That's why you sign the work order that specifies what you are ordering and includes the installation instructions. Once you sign, they can't just bump up the price on you because you have a written contract.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Simonton Daylight vs Anlin

I have 4 quotes to replace three slider windows and three sliding doors. I'm in San Diego and don't feel like I need heavy duty windows, but do want to improve the overall energy efficiency of my home. One of the current windows faces south and heats up the condo in the summer. Love to get your take, thanks.

Anlin Monte Verde Series: $5620

Anlin BayView Series: $5554

Anlin Catalina/Del Mar Series: $7050

Simonton Daylight Series: $5736

Greg - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Greg, those look like fair estimates in my opinion. The splits in prices look like what I'd expect as well. I think the Simonton Daylight and Anlin Monte Verde are pretty equal in terms of quality and craftsmanship. I like all your bids actually, which is sort of not giving you much in terms of a direction to go. If this were my project, I would switch my focus from the windows to the company doing the installation. This is where you are going to see the difference.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton Daylight Max 7300 Prices

We have four windows that we need to replace and with the Simonton daylight max 7300.
(2) 8' patio sliders
(1) 4' x 6' glider
(1) 3'x3' glider

No fancy add ons, just retrofit, normal installation in good condition condo.


- Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Susan, that strikes me as high for a window like the Daylight Max, not a bad window, but nowhere near the best. Here is my suggestion -- get a bid from local companies on the following brands and see how they compare -- Milgard, Anlin and Amerimax. All three will be available in the Bay Area.

Ask for the mid range vinyl window they offer and shoot me the prices when you get them. I think we can get that price down and maybe get you a better window! The key is going to be the cost on those patio sliders.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton DayLight Max Window Costs

We bought a home in Northern California and the windows are single pane aluminum ones from the 1960w. We are getting quotes from local and reputable installers, but are getting mired in all the quotes and little differences. Have have two large patio doors and 14 large windows. Here are the bids we've collected so far.

Milgard Tuscany Series: $14.5K

Simonton Madiera Series: $13K

Simonton DayLight Max: $12K

Anlin Del Mar: $16K

Amerimax Craftsman: $11K

Daron - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Daron, I'd say that the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait tops my list. The Craftsman Portrait series is on par with the Milgard Tuscany and Anlin Del Mar. It's better than both of the Simonton series you have quotes on.

The Amerimax bid is very competitive in terms of pricing. I would do my due diligence and find out if the Amerimax dealer has a good reputation and has been in business for awhile. Assuming this true, this is the bid I'd go with. After that, I'd probably go with the Simonton DayLight Max series.

Simonton ProFinish Window Prices

The Simonton Pro-Finish gets lots of attention with its inclusion in the 2016 Consumer Reports Best Replacement Windows. Here the Contractor model ranked quite well in the category for vinyl windows. The Pro Finish series comes in 3 options: The Builder, Contractor and Master. The Master is the highest grade, while the Builder is the entry level. Each of the model options comes as a new construction window.

The ProFinish Builder is a builder grade series that comes with the lower end components, glass and features. The upgraded Contractor is close in construction quality to the Asure model. The only difference is the balancing system. The Master model includes a few nice upgrades from the Contractor model such as the better sash design similar to the Reflections 550. Overall, the Pro-Finish window is comparable to Monte Verde window prices.

Tim - Site Editor

Simonton ProFinish Contractor Pricing

Greetings Dane and Tim, first, I'd like to thank each of you for providing such an incredible resource for homeowners and DIYers. Your site has been invaluable in helping me learn about the window industry. It is definitely a daunting landscape.

My wife and I are in the midst of a comprehensive renovation of a 110-year-old home in Kansas City, KS. We worked through the bid process, selected a contractor, and have begun the project. We received several bids for windows and after reading through your site, I kept pressing for better options.

We went from Alside Mezzos ($6,126) to Mi 1555 ($4,283) to Simonton perfeXion ($5823) to Simonton ProFinish Contractor ($5364). The quotes are attached.

I am wondering if I should go with either of the Simonton windows or press further for another Simonton level or something else. I cannot seem to find windows such as Okna, Sunrise or SoftLite.

My timeline and budget are both fairly short so I may have to go with the best of what I have here. I also have quotes for Vinylmax Edison ($11,250) and Window Source 6000 series ($14,850) but each of those is bundled with the installation and my contractor has already included install in his overall renovation bid.

Any advice you can share is appreciated.

Kind Regards.

Justin and Laura - Homeowners - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Justin and Laura, I think that the Simonton perfeXion and Simonton ProFinish Contractor are your best value options, followed closely by the Alside Mezzo. The perfexion model is actually available in three options and the platinum is vey good. I'd say the Simonton perfexion gold, ProFinish Contractor, and Alside Mezzo are all pretty darn close in terms of quality. The Vinylmax Edison is excellent, but probably not worth that extra sots, especially with your budget.

I'd probably go with the Simonton ProFinish Contractor and save the money. If the ProFinish Master model is available for the same price as the Alside Mezzo I might pull the trigger on this one.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Simonton Pro Finish Costs

I live in Wisconsin and we are building a home and want white vinyl windows. I am waffling b/n the Simonton Pro Build Contractor and the Marvin integrity all ultrex fiberglass. The Simonton option will run $9,000, while the Marvin Integrity will run $21,000.

It's quite a big difference and I'm wondering it the Marvin Integrity is worth the extra cost. We plan to be in this home for many many years to come.

Derek - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Derek, the break difference is probably what I'd expect to see between these two window series. The Pro Finish Contractor is pretty close to the Simonton Asure. I'm not sure this is what I would put in my home. The Marvin Integrity is a good window and I would say it's worth the difference in price. If you did go with the ProFinish Contractor, I would think you would want to spring for some upgrades like glass and maybe a sill reinforcement.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Simonton ProFinish Brickmould 600 Cost

I received a cost quote for the Simonton 600 Series. Came out to $325 per window complete. Another bid was for the Sunrise Verde at $725 per window complete. Last one was on the Midway EnviroSealed series for $650 per window complete. Which one is the best window do you think?

Scotty - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Scotty, the Simonton ProFinish 600 is not a bad window and the price quote you received is very aggressive. The Sunrise and Midway Envirosealed window are definitely better, but they are more than double the price. I would see if the Simonton dealer would add in a couple of upgrades and you could pay like $375 per window.

Simonton StormBreaker Plus Prices

The StormBreaker Plus is a certified impact series. Some consumers upgrade the Impressions 9800 window to make it a hurricane window, but the Stormbreaker Plus has a .90 thick interlayer glass and a reinforced sash rail. The Stormbreaker is well made and sturdy and quite a good value for an impact window.

The Stormbreaker has a DP rating of 65 and is comparable to PGT 400 Impact window costs.

Simonton Storm Breaker Price Bid

I'm looking at two potential bids: Eastern Architectural and Simonton Storm Breaker 300 VL. We live in Clearwater, Florida and have 10 windows for our condo. The Simonton bid is $11,900 and the Eastern bid is $11,560.

Chuck - Homeowner - from 2018

Price for 17 windows replaced with Simonton Storm Breaker plus. What would be a ball-park figure for such a project? These are casement windows. Thanks in advance.

Nadya - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nadya, I'd say the Simonton Storm Breaker plus would run from $500 to $650 for window and normal installation on a normal/medium sized window. This is also assuming no upgrades to the windows. So anywhere from $8500 to $11,050.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

That bid sounds kinda high at $1400 per window for Simonton, although the shutters make it perhaps pretty fair. I would get a quote from both PGT and CWS to see how they compare. Florida has quite a few nice options when it comes to impact windows.

Simonton Impressions Window Prices

The Simonton Impressions 9800 is Simontons best vinyl window in the non impact realm. It has similar performance data with the Reflections 5500 series, but is better looking in terms of the frame style and color options.

Michelle - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michelle, I think you are correct with the order of things: Sunrise, Simonton, then Alside. If you plan to stay in your home for a long time then the Sunrise is going to be your best bet. Conversely, if you are in your home less than five years, then go with the Alside option. The Simonton is also a decent option for the price, I might have to bump that one to just below the Sunrise!

Simonton Bay And Bow Windows Cost

Like most companies, Simonton buys their bay adn bow boxes from a third party company. The company takes the specs, makes the bay frame, seat, mulling between windows, etc. Simonton then inserts their own windows into the openings and ships them to the consumer.

Simonton Daylight Max Bay Window Costs

We have to replace a bay window and 8 windows. We have a number of bids, which are. This project requires quite a bit of work to the bay window area and the siding around the windows. Roughly $4k of the bids are allocated for the bay window product, labor and install.

Simonton Daylight Max: $13,200

Pella 250: $13,500

Nate - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nate, these bids are all very close so I'm assuming that's the going price. Either the Milgard Tuscany or Daylight Max. I'd say those two are equal in terms of quality. I'd pass the Pella 250 series myself.

Simonton Prism Gold Pricing

The Simonton Prism Gold series is nearly identical to the Simonton Reflections 5300 model. The 5300 window is a gooding looking unit and comes with an Intercept spacer, as well as ProSolar low-e glass. It can be pruchased in a double hung, casement, slider and fixed frame style. I might compare this window to a Milgard Tuscany, although unlike the Tuscany, the 5300 does not use the capture sill, which makes the 5300 the design I prefer over the Tuscany.

Simonton Gold Prism Cost Bid

I live in Kansas City and am planning on replacing 9 windows. I received a bid on the Simonton Norandex Gold series that includes the windows, disposal and installation. The bid was for $3900 and includes everything. Is this a good deal?

Rick - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rick, they Simonton Gold series is a nice mid range vinyl window. 9 windows for $3900 puts your average window cost at $433 per window, which sounds very fair for the quality of window you are buying. I don't think you have to just accept the price though, I would go back to him and ask him if there is anyway he can get that price to $400 a window. Or ask if he can do the Platinum version of the window for the price quote he gave you. There's some wiggle room for price I'll bet!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Simonton Prism Platinum Pricing

The Simonton Prism Platinum series is essentially the Reflections 5500 series. The Prism Platinum series is the premium option in the prism series. The window is nice looking, with clean sightlines and a streamlined appearance.

The Simonton Prism Platinum comes standard with a stepped sill, interlocking meeting rail, tilt in sash, 7/8 inch insulating glass unit, and integrated lift rail. It uses argon fills, intercept space, ProSolar Low-e glass, and a fiberglass mesh screen. The Prism Platinum series is comparable to the Classic Sunrise window.

Carl, the Zen and Polaris quote are the best by far. The Zen Nirvana at $515 is great price. However, the Polaris UltraWeld for $575 is really awesome as well. Either one of those.

Simonton Perfexion Windows Cost

The Norandex Perfexion window comes in three options: silver, gold, and platinum. The silver is the entry level and the platinum has the upgrades. The Perfexion series is now a Simonton window that is pretty close to their Reflections series, although I'd give the nod to the Reflections over the Perfexion.

Simonton PerfeXion Platinum Costs

I have 13 windows to replace.

Simonton PerfeXion Platinum: $10,050

Sunrise Ultra Premium with Omega 12 glass: $12,690

Simonton 5500: $14,520

Marilyn - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marilyn, the Simonton PerfeXion Platinum is close enough to the Simonton 5500 to toss out the 5500 bid. I think it's a toss up between the PerfeXion Platinum and Sunrise Ultra Premium at $12.7K. If I were staying in my home long term, I'd do the Sunrise. If I were considering moving in the next 8 or 10 years, I'd save the money with the perfexion.

Simonton PerfeXion vs. ProVia Endure

Good morning, I'm looking into replacing 14 double hung windows and a picture window in my townhome in Maryland.

Could you please give me your thoughts and opinions on the estimates below?

Any information you could provide me would be extremely helpful in making my decision more informed. Thanks!

Simonton Reflection 5500 Series for $9,050.00

PerfeXion by Norandex. It is my understanding that they are the exact same as the Simonton Reflection 5500, but a different distributor. Please clarify and confirm. $8,650

Soft-Lite Classic Series for $13,559.00

Provia Endure EN600 Series 601 for $10,946.58


Brielle - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brielle, those are some good quality bids there. The Simonton Reflections 5500 is a very solid window and I like the bid. The Perfexion is now made by Simonton and the Perfexion Platinum series is close to the 5500, but they also sell the Gold and silver models, which are not quite as good. I think the 5500 is well worth the extra $400.

The 5500 is comparable to the SL Classic so no sense in going with that bid. The ProVia Endure is a good window and possibly worth the extra money, but I tend to think not. If you could get that bid, down to $10K, I’d be more inclined to endorse the ProVia option.

All The Best.

Simonton PerfeXion Platinum Cost vs. Sunrise Ultra Premium

I've been looking for replacement windows here near Northeastern Illinois. I have 13 windows and have been looking primarily at Simonton and Sunrise. I really like the Sunrise Ultra Premium with a white interior and white exterior that comes with a Omega 12 glass, polyurethane foam-filled frame, and half screens. The window gets a U factor of .25, a SHGC of .21. The total cost is $12,690. Which is the better deal?

Marilyn - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marilyn, I'd love to hear more about the Simonton quote and price before I offer up any advise.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

[Marilyn's Reply]

Good morning, and thank you for the quick response. Their Simonton 5500 quote came in at 14,520, which would be 13,794 with 5% discount. Details below.

Another installer gave me a Simonton quote for $10,000, but it's not the same window. He says it's the same as the 5500, but it's perfeXion Platinum Double Hung, Operation = Operating / Operating, Operation = Operating, Frame = Replacement, Ext. Color = White, Int. Color = White, Glass Package = Energy Star Northern, ProSolar Sun Low E, Argon, Supercept, 7/8"IGU, Glass Thickness = 1/8 in - 1/8 out DS, Upper = Annealed, Lower = Annealed, Locks = 2, White, Cam, Air Latches = 2, Sill Extender, Head Expander, Balance Track Covers, Screen Coverage = Half, Fiberglass, Extruded, UFactor = 0.3, SHGC = 0.47, VT = 0.57, STC = 28, Meets Energy Star Zones = Northern, DP = 25, AAMA, TDI = WIN-1308, Florida Approval Code = 5167 , Factory, 1/2 in H-Mullion (Vertical)

The $10,000 quote doesn't include the permit. Also, I can see their U factors and SHGC are higher. I'm not that concerned about the SHCG factor because I'm surrounded by shade in the summer and would appreciate a little heat from the sun in the winter. I don't want to put in junky windows, but it doesn't seem to make sense to pay $4,000 more if the only important difference is a slightly lower U factor. I definitely want a sturdy window that will last for the next 30 years or so, and based on my research a U factor of .25 of better is desirable for Northeastern Illinois.

Again, below is the quote from the installer I hope to work with. Maybe I just need to take them the $10,000 quote and find out what might be driving up the price on their quote, and whether the differences are worth it to me. I'm almost thinking the Simonton U2 would be a better fit for me considering it provides a .25 U factor and a .48 SHGC factor which would allow more solar heat to enter during the winter. It would also provide better visual transparency.

Option 3: Simonton Reflections 5500 series Ultra Premium vinyl replacement windows. White interior, white exterior, ProSolar shade, Low-e /argon, supercept performance glass package. Standard half screens and white hardware. U factor of .28, SHGC of .2 on these units. Total project cost of $14,520

Marilyn - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marilyn, so let's toss the Simonton 5500 quote of $14,520 and look at the other two. The perfeXion Platinum Double Hung is $10,000 and the Sunrise Ultra Premium for $12,690. The perfeXion Platinum is a decent window and you could totally go this route. The Sunrise Ultra Premium is an excellent window and well worth the extra $2,000 (let's say the permitting is the extra $690). So those are your choices, although I still think I'd go back to the sunrise dealer and tell him that you have a bid for $10K and if he could do anything to sweeten the deal, you would be hard pressed not to go with him and see what he says.

U-factor and SHGC are important numbers, but not the only numbers to look at. In general, Sunrise makes a better window than Simonton in fit, tolerances, and finish that play more of a role as the windows age. Either way, I think you are looking at solid products.

Simonton Perfexion Window Bid

I'm in Richmond have a few bids to replace 20 double hung windows. The two VinylMax quotes are from the same person. I was curious what option below you thought was the best "bang for your buck"? This entire process is soooo confusing! It's very difficult to make a good decision, because I just don't know how to decide. Thank you in advance.

OKNA Insul-Tec Deluxe Series: $11,715

Norandex Perfexion Series: $9,415

VinylMax Edison Series: $16,960

VinylMax Newton Series: $18,960

Becky - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Becky, the VinylMax Edison and VinylMax Newton windows are both very good windows, but in this case, they are way overpriced. The Norandex Perfexion Series is a mid range window that looks to be fairly priced for 20 windows. For an extra $100 a window, you can go with the OKNA Insul-Tec, which is a much better window than the Perfexion. It's actually close to the VinylMax Edison in terms of quality and craftsmanship.

Perfexion Platinum Prices vs. Berkshire Elite

Hi Dane, I live in Maryland and would like to replace 6 windows in my townhouse. I have attached the two quotes. One price is better, but we want to make sure we are getting the better quality windows. We do plan on renting out or selling our home in the next 5 years. Your expertise is greatly needed and appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Perfexion Silver: $3000

Perfexion Platinum: $3500

Berkshire Elite: $2700

Marcella - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marcella, I think spending the extra $800 on the Perfexion Platinum is worth the money for 6 windows. They are a better window in my opinion than the Berkshire Elite. I say go with the Perfexion Platinum and feel good about buying a higher quality product for your home.

Cary - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Cary, the Norandex Perfexion is a Simonton window. $1000 per window is a steep price tag to pay. I'd get a few more bids.

Simonton Verona Windows Cost

Simington Verona Window Costs

Hi and thank you for having this site. I have a quote from Brother’s for the Verona style windows by Simington. Have you heard of Duckbill top? I have an extra charge for 3 windows.

I haven’t been informed what that is.but 3x 180=&540. My cost.

3 windows are 57x 56 one as daylight max and sound package , 2 at 45 5/8( duckbill chg)

Patio door 69.5x79.5 daylight max with a discount $ 4,060. (Duckbill chg.)

Labor $940. = $5000

First, what is your opinion about these windows ?

I haven’t been informed about the rollers on the patio door or it’s locking and ability to tip out via a burglar.

I am on a very limited income and I especially don’t want to be ripped off or get an inferior product.

Thank you again.

Robin - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Robin, the Simonton Verona is a decent mid range vinyl window. I think with good quality installation, the Simonton Verona should be just fine. $5000 for 3 windows and a patio door seems pricey to me. If I were you, I would collect a few more bids to compare your current one.

Zen Windows of St. Louis, the Viwinco CambridgeBrands you could look at include Ply Gem, Great Lakes, Wincore and Zen windows. Collect your bids and see if any of these provide a better deal.

Simonton Casement Windows Costs

I have a bid on 17 Alside casements. The quote came out to $6,700 from a reputable installer who has been working locally for a long time. I have a very limited budget. The Alside reviews I've read are quite bad and I haven't seen any reviews specific to casements.

The installer recently told me he can also get Simonton windows, which seem to get much better reviews. Why would he push the Alsides over the Simontons? Thanks.

Chris - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chris, Alside reviews are a bit all over the board, but I agree that Simonton has the better reputation. Alside makes a casement window in nearly every model they make so it's tough to say whether you have a bad window unless I know the series. Same with Simonton. If you can get the same basic pricing on a Simonton mid range series, then this is the option I'd recommend.

I like the fact that you have an installer you trust with a good reputation. Now let's find a mid range Simonton casement that you like the look of and will meet your budget concerns.

Simonton Window Quotes From Home Depot

I am buying 4 windows at a cost of $3456. It seems like a lot of money to pay for these windows.

Shirley- Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Shirley, I can't say if this is too much or not. It depends on lots of factors -- the size of the openings and configuration is a huge factor. Typically, Home Depot is quite affordable, but they don't sell top-of-the-line windows. The Simonton windows they do sell are often their lower to mid range models.

In order to find out whether you are paying too much (more precisely, to find out the fair market price) you need a few bids from local companies. Three or four bids should show you a range of products and hopefully should tell you whether the HD bid is fair or is too high.

Also, I typically advise consumers to be careful about HD installation, which often uses low paid subcontractors who don't necessarily spend as much time as they should installing your windows. Shortcuts in installation can come back to cost you quite a bit of money down the road.
