Window Nation prices range from the mid to higher end of the vinyl window price range. The company sells two brands, the first is a rebadged Vytex line (rebranded and labeled exclusively for them), as well as Soft-Lite windows. Vytex windows are generally considered a mid range vinyl window manufacturer, while Soft-lite windows is considered one of the elite windows available.

Window Nation Imperial LS Window Prices


Imperial LS vs. Preservation Energymaxx 4 Series

Thanks for the tips Tim. I received the following quotes:

Andersen Renewal: $10k, was just ridiculous

Window Nation: $5,800 for Imperial LS series by Soft Lite

Zen Windows: $6,600 for Nirvana series (also produced by Soft Lite)

Specialty Window and Door: $5,050 for Imperial LS series by Soft Lite, $4,450

Preservation Energymaxx 4 series by Alside

I'm torn between the Imperial LS and Preservation options above. I really like the Presevation EnegyMaxx 4 series , the window seems to be a decent window and I really liked the quoted price. I think the Imperial LS reviews a little better though. The dealer from Specialty Window and Door that gave me quotes on both said he's had better experience dealing with fixing warranty issues with Preservation windows over the Imperial LS. Funny thing, I just noticed tonight the 40 year old aluminum windows in my house are Alside windows, says Alside right on the locking latch.

What are your thoughts? Have any guidance?

Thanks again,

Ernie, I agree with you that the Renewal quote is way too high. Assuming that Specialty Window and Door has a good reputation for installation and their prices are the most affordable, I would go with them.

Of the two options they offer, I like the Imperial LS over the Preservation, but that's just my opinion. Very interesting that Preservation dealt with warranty issues better than Soft-Lite. I haven't heard that before.

Bottom line is they are both very good windows and I think you would be well served by either. At this point, go with your gut!

Imperial LS And Platinum Series

Hi, I’m a new home owner. I bought an older cap code house, it’s about 85 years old. It currently has these 40 year old aluminum windows that don’t seem very energy efficient. I got three quotes but from different installers on replacing all the windows, but they seemed to very quite a bit. I think after doing some research online I’ve narrowed it down to using Window Nation to install their version of Soft Lite’s Imperial LS and Platinum LS series.

Window Nation’s quote was for five casement windows (18” x 48”) as Imperial LS, one double hung window (32” x 45”) as a Platinum LS (triple panel upgrade from the Imperial LS) and one picture window (91” x 48”) with sliders as a Platinum LS. I added having colonial grids to the windows. The total quote was $5,800. Does that price seem reasonable for the quality of window that I’m getting? I plan on living in this house a minimum of 7 years or longer. I want a windows that will last.

Any advice would be great. Thanks!

Ernie, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS and Platinum LS are excellent vinyl windows, two of the best out there. $5800 seems a bit high on the surface, but I have no idea how much work is involved putting them in and taking out your existing windows, etc.

How does the bid compare with the others you've received? Can you call the Window Nation rep and use a lower bid to get to his lowest price? Tell him you REALLY want to go with his company, but the price is out of your budget and if there was anyway to get that price close to the (fill in existing bid from another company), then I'm ready to sign on the dotted line.

Then give it a few days and wait. See if he gets back to you with a better price. You can always call him up after three days and go with him.

You are getting a good window with the Soft-Lite Imperial LS that should last for a good 20 years assuming the installation is done properly.

Window Nation Grandview Window Prices


Grandview vs. Simonton 5500

Getting pricing and knowledge about windows is worse than trying to buy a new computer and I know some about computers. My house was built in 1956 and they are the original windows, I live in NJ. This is very frustrating, I received a few quotes. 1 form home depot and i know they don't do their own work. I also received a quote for Simonton 5500 14 Double Hung Units and 1 Picture Window) price: $8,500.00. I told him it was a lot of money but he wouldn't come down. So I said lets take out the kitchen and home office windows and he re-quoted at $6600. for 11 windows instead of 15 windows I also received a quote from a company called Windows Nation quote below on the Grandview Series window. Total Sale Price $8,900.00. I think this is a better window-has better ratings but obviously more money but do i really need to pay that much.

Carol - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Carol, the Simonton 5500 and the Grandview, which is a relabeled Vytex are both good windows. I don’t think the Grandview is a better window. I’d go with the Simonton for the $8500 unless you can get the Grandview rep to come down on his price.

Window Nation Envision Window Prices


Soft Lite Envision vs Polaris Plymouth

Dane, I'm evaluating quotes for 20 double hung windows and possibly a sliding patio door. A couple of points that I wanted to get your opinion on:

- I've had two local companies come out because they represent brands (Sunrise, Soft Lite) that were highly rated on your website. That being stated, they are both really pushing windows that are 'made exclusively' for them. They look like decent windows but would like your opinion.

- Neither company has really given me a written quote; is this normal? I did get an email finally from the one company that is promoting the Soft Lite Envision but it seems a little shady to me that I've only gotten verbal quotes.

- It looks like the window manufacturers all make sliding patio doors; is it safe to assume that if you recommend a manufacturer's windows (Okna, or Soft Like or Sunrise), then you also recommend their sliding patio doors?

- We'll probably be in the house another 15 years so I'm looking for a decent but not top-of-the-line window.

Here are the quotes I've received:

Soft Lite Envision (exclusive to Window Nation) $12,886. Includes installation, lifetime warranty on complete window. U=.27, low-e & argon gas, .07 air infiltration

Polaris Plymouth (by Window Systems) - $12,928 - about the same in regards to U, etc.

Sunrise Restorations (through Window Systems)- $15,155

Thanks for your help. BTW, I found your website to be very helpful in my research on windows, manufacturers, etc.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Bryan, it is not unusual for window companies to sell windows that are made "exclusively" for them.

It is absolutely safe to say that the quality of a company's patio doors are similar to the quality of their vinyl windows. This isn't always the case, but it is for Soft-Lite and Polaris -- Soft-Lite is better, Polaris is still good.

Not providing an actual quote would raise red flags for me -- what are they waiting for? Call them up and tell the rep or sales person you are collecting bids and you need their best quote to compare to your others (this lets them know you are serious and want their best quote for the project).

It does look they provided you a quote finally? At least with the Envision, which is the Soft-Lite Bainbridge model. Not the best window, but still pretty good with that .07 air infiltration.

I haven't heard of the Polaris Plymouth, I would think its a labeled ValuSmart window (their entry level) -- although perhaps their ThermalWeld -- I would definitely find out the answer to this (ask them, if they can't tell you the answer then you have to assume its the lower quality ValuSmart). I like the ThermalWeld, not so much the ValuSmart.

The Sunrise Restorations is an excellent window, easily the best of the bunch, but also the most expensive. Can you see if the Sunrise rep can give you a quote on the standard Sunrise frame -- this is a great window and simply lacks some of the nicer upgrades of the Restorations.

The problem you have is that with your 15 year timeline, it's kind of tricky to know what to go with. What about trying to whittle the Sunrise Restorations bid down a bit. I don't think you're going to get much lower, but it's worth a shot. I like the idea of the standard Sunrise window, but some reps only have access to the Restorations.
