I just found a review that you wrote back in 2016. It was on the Eco windows and you mentioned that their "U-factor VT, and condensation resistance numbers were pretty much deplorable."
Below is your response to someone who wrote in for advice. Please let me know if this is still the way you feel, as I am seriously considering ECO.
BTW, these will be installed near salt water. Not on the beach, but on an inside canal that is salt water. Thanks so much for your opinion.

Don, I went back and looked at the nfrc.org website for Eco Windows, LLC instead of Eco Window Systems, LLC. (These corporate names can get confusing.) So the Eco Windows had some nice energy efficiency numbers, while I hold with my original statement that the casement numbers on the Eco Window Systems, LLC (which seems to sell thermally broken windows) were more or less horrible.
Other than what I found on the nfrc.org website, I have no additional information on these companies or their windows. There's just not that much out there on them. I wish I knew more!

Eco Windows Systems
Hello Dane, I am in the process to quote replacement for about 14 windows. I got a quote for PGT which was extremely expensive. I still have doubts about expending about 10% of the cost of the house on windows. I was referred by a friend to a company called Eco Windows Systems. Do you have any comments about the company?

Francyne, I don't know a ton about Eco, although I have seen a few of their windows. I thought they had a somewhat bulky frame to them with a big bottom sash. Besides that, I don't know any more.
PGT and CWS are the two companies I would recommend in Florida so get a bid from CWS and see how it compares. Ask for a bid on their most popular mid range vinyl window and let them know your budget beforehand and see if this helps.
The other option is Simonton. They make good middle of the road vinyl windows that work well and won't break the bank. Find a Simonton dealer in your area and get a bid on one of their mid range vinyl windows.
Hopefully, you can find a bid from one of these sources that works and is in your price range. You will find that there is a huge variation in cost so keep looking.

ECO Windows vs PGT Windows
ECO Windows vs PGT Windows for a single family home in Florida. Both are reputable in Florida and the prices seem to be competitive. My concern is quality and customer service. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

Damian, I know virtually nothing about Eco Windows, so I can't comment much on them. However, I did look them up on the nfrc.org website, which lists performance numbers from hundreds of window companies. I'm assuming that Eco Windows is Eco Window Systems, LLC (but this isn't necessarily right, that's how confusing the window industry can be...)
Assuming they are this company, their U-factor VT, and condensation resistance numbers were pretty much deplorable. The best number I could find on their casement was a .67 U-factor, .25 visible transmittance, and 20 CR.
As far as PGT windows goes, I find their windows very high quality, good performers and very price competitive. If it were me, I'd go with a proven brand like PGT any day of the week.
As for Eco, I will continue to look at them and try to get some additional information on them. I don't like to rush to judgement on any company.
