PGT Windows

PGT is considered a reliable manufacturer that delivers durable and well made vinyl and aluminum windows. The companies makes a number of window lines and products, but they are perhaps best known for their hurricane impact windows and doors. The company enjoys a good reputation for honoring their warranties and standing behind their products. Many of their product lines are available in both vinyl and an aluminum option.

They company is headquartered in Venice, Florida and should be available in many of the coastal states in the south eastern United States. Pricewise, their products will typically be a bit more expensive than comparable Simonton windows, about on par with Custom Window Systems. (see below)

CWS Windows

Custom Window Systems offers a number of impact vinyl and aluminum models and series. In terms of quality, the company offers some very well made vinyl windows and doors. They are often compared to PGT on both strength, durability and price. CWS is probably less well known and this may provide consumers with slightly better pricing than PGT.

Consumers who are looking for impact windows in coast al areas should get bids from CWS and PGT dealers to see which one is the better deal. The company is out of Florida and has been in business since 1986. Two series that we recommend include the WindPact Plus and the Icon impact aluminum frame.

Simonton Windows

Simonton is one of the largest replacement window companies in the United States, with distribution in nearly every state, including Florida. Consumers can purchase Simonton windows at the big box stores, or through the countless contractors and reps who distribute and sell various models and lines. They aren't the fanciest or best looking vinyl windows, but they are well made, sturdy and reliable.

The company stands behind their products and has lots of series and models to choose from. Three models we recommend include the Reflections 5500 series, the 9800 Impressions and the ProFinish Contractor, which is similar to their entry level Asure, but at a lower price point.

Florida Recommendations

Hi Dane, really appreciate your site. We are doing a remodel in Central Fl. but we live in Texas so we are having to rely on the builder for recommendations. I am just concerned he's going to go with a lower grade than what we want. Plan to be in the house 10+ yrs

He is looking at Norandex / Simonton - are these good, well insulated windows. I am looking for noise reduction. I saw you recommended Sunrise. Which of the two would be a better option? Website does not give much info.

Replacement Windows In Florida

Dane, I just bought a home near Orlando Fl, surprisingly all single pane single hung windows. Surprisingly because the home was built in 2000. They are all aluminum frames with what looks like a single pane with a rubber ‘gasket’ on each side (inside and outside) and an aluminum block screwed into the jamb frame with stainless steel screws every 6-10”. Attached is a picture of the semi picture window detail.

And a picture of the single hung window below the semi.

I need to replace all 25 windows in the house. Do you know if I can replace the sash only or do I need to go Al the way down to the block and get replacement units. Any recommendations would be appreciated as I am just starting this project. Many thanks for your response.

John - Homeowner - from 2022

John, based on the pictures I would say you should replace the whole unit, but let each of the companies that comes out to give you a bid give their opinion. I'll send you my Forida based recommendations.

Central Florida Replacement Windows

Dane: great site and informative. I have read/learned a lot of info here. We are replacing all the windows (built 1998 - NuAir junk). Central FL Tampa area, 130mph zone, direct sun all day WSW side of house (4 windows) and west side (1). I will request thru your site the 5 Star quotes regardless.

9 Standard size double hung

1 large front (prob 2 dbl hung w middle fixed and large eyebrow roughly 84"Hx102"W)

1 small awning rear bath (1"x2"), ventilation window

Small eyebrow above front door and possibly a new door system

1 slider (7' W) under cover of porch

1 slider (6'W) - however we may replace w/french door since this is from the master to pool) under cover of porch

Had WestShore (PUSHY!!!) come out a while back pitching Softlite. nice product but they wanting approx $2200/window. Laughed the guy out even after the Manager special that day. Would have been $33,000 for all windows and no specific itemized list or prep detailed!!

Family member has been w RBA for years covering central FL. At family reunion we chatted. Obviously he was saying Fibrex for a number of reasons - he will be coming out in a couple weeks to chat more. I have read the warranty info and its pretty strong compared to others - yet I know its expensive. I would rather he get the commissions (keep in the family) then an unknown, IF he can get the pricing down to a reasonable number, we'll see.

Why is Fibrex better?? Is it really better??

I would like your recommendations for the best product/value for HOT Central FL. We do not need Hurricane shatterproof unless if just a tremendous deal. Warranty coverage is also a critical piece to the puzzle. Lowest number - AL / U-Value / SHGC / DBL pane-lowE argon or Kryton / High CR. **** We have completely remodeled to entire house and are not looking at the cheapest product but the best product for our climate/weather. Likely we will be here for at least 10+ more years. We are retirbngand have a challenged son living with us. Budget is currently $15-20K, maybe more the product is worth it.

I would appreciate any thoughts you may have and you are welcome to post our convo on your site for future FL homeowners. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Steve, so yes I do like the Soft-Lite products, but that seems quite excessive -- West Shore Homes has great reviews, they probably have too much business right now and are bidding out super high because they can.

I would be surprised if Renewal was less than that though. They sell a good window, but their energy efficiency numbers aren't all that great compared to a top tier vinyl window. I would rather have a Soft-Lite Element over the RBA myself -- your in law works there, so that's a tricky one. Their warranty is quite good -- I just tend not to put a lot of stock in warranties because most of the problems occur in year 11,12, 13 etc. They don't cover labor at that point, which is 35% of the project total and many of them are pro-rated so you end up paying 70% of the per window cost when something goes wrong.

Here are my Florida recommendations, hopefully you can find some options that work for Central Florida!

[Steve's Reply]

Wow quick reply thx. Softlite has a few more locals on their website, so i'll try that too. PGT I can get thru my GC friends at close to cost even the high end. CWS I am intrigued with so I'll look saw info on your site re:CWS. Okna does not sell in FL checked a while back.

I'll let you know when we get the bids in. I'll hit your 5 Star next day or so to start some omevement there too. Thanks man, should be this damn hard an Ive remodeled/rehab over 100 homes but never dealt w windows just let the GC handle lol.

Best Orlando Window Replacements

Hello Dane, I have tried to research replacement window quality, installations, recommendations, etc. and find your web site the most helpful. My modular home is 21 years old and I want to replace 19 windows (single or double hung, good mid level quality, vinyl)

I have a quote from HD for $14,998 ($789 per window) and another local company for $19,500 (over $1,000 per window). I am waiting on another quote, trying to find a company that will be anywhere near the $500-600 installed prices for many of your recommended mid level windows. Can you suggest a Company/Product in the Orlando area that might be in this range?

Jacksonville Florida Replacement Windows

I’m located in the Jacksonville Florida area. Do you know what window installation companies In the area sell and install Sift-lite windows. I have talked with Paramont Builders but their installation reviews suck.

Tom - Homeowner - from 2021

Tom, off hand I don’t but you could find out in a few minutes using their locator

Here are some recommendations for non-storm windows in Florida.

Polaris ThermalWeld, Soft-Lite Classic, Soft-Lite Pro, Kensington Huntington, Vytex Fortis, PGT 2300, PGT 5400, Simonton 9800, Simonton Reflections 5500, Zen Nirvana, Zen Lotus, and the Sunrise Classic.

Replacements Window in Florida

Hi Tim - great site. I’m rebuilding a storm damaged home in St. John. Looking to source the windows in Florida. I will be measuring and ordering all of the windows and then shipping them. Would like to find the lowest cost distributor I can to get the best possible price and obviously there will be some resale margin there. Given the very small effort and work that will need to be done to place the order, I’m looking for any recommendations that might be my best cost option for a dealer?

Joe - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joe, I don't have much experience in terms of finding Florida distributors willing to let the customer DIY the project. You might try and call the Florida based companies directly -- PGT and Custom Window Systems spring to mind. Most consumers who want to DIY windows have to go through Home Depot, Lowes, Dixieline, etc. I would definitely talk with the people who work in these departments and ask them if they have any additional options for you. These big box stores have a lower margin than distributors typically, but the quality at some of these spots isn't great. However, you can get some decent mind range vinyl windows at a fair price using this option. Good luck!

Pensacola Window Options

We will be replacing all of our windows in our 1980's ranch brick house. I'm looking for a good mid range window in our area in Pensacola, Fl. I love the look of our old bronze aluminum windows but they have always had condensation in the winter time and I've read they are not energy efficient. So I'm interested in the vinyl but I would still like to keep the bronze color. Any good brand suggestions for our area? Thanks.

Kim - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Kim, there are some very good vinyl window brands available in your area such as Custom Window Systems and PGT Windows. If you do a search for these brands in Pensacola Florida, the companies that sell them should come up rather easily. Or you can call up the companies directly and ask who services your area.

The problem is going to be getting that bronze, that may take a little extra digging, although if you get two or three local companies to come out to give you a bid, one of them will know whether any local companies offer a vinyl window with a bronze interior. They do exist, I know Milgard and Okna offer a darker interior, but I don't think either of these companies services Florida.

I would start out with the brands I suggested or phone some vinyl window replacement companies in Pensacola and ask them for suggestions. That might be the quickest option. Let me know what you find.
