Editor's Enerlux Window Review

EnerLux Windows and Doors manufacture fiberglass window and doors based out of Omaha, Nebraska. The performance data on the windows is impressive, for instance, their casement garners a .01 air infiltration and a design pressure of 70. The company is not listed on the so I wasn't able to get any more data than what's listed on their website.

Their windows are nice looking, clean corner welds and narrow frames as is typical of fiberglass windows. I have no idea about price, I have to imagine they are expensive. However, they look like they might offer some impressive long term value, given proper and thorough installation.

Enerlux Windows Warranty

The Enerlux warranty is good for 20 years from the date or purchase. Remedies under the warranty apply to the original purchaser only and the warranty is non transferrable. All in all, not the best warranty out there, but pretty typical for a fiberglass window.

Enerlux In Minneapolis?

Hi Dane, my husband is a handyman, and has had a contractors license in another state. He is experienced in window installation. I want a quality window , not something from a big box store. I would like to see us order direct and save a lot of cost by him doing the work himself. How do we go about this. ( he does not know I’m emailing you, lol). We're in Minneapolis.

Barb, you could call up window companies directly and see if they would sell you their windows. Typically, they won't do this since they have exclusive deals with their distributors, but I'm sure there are exceptions to this rule. Obviously your husband would have to measure the windows very well as shipping is going to be a factor in this scenario. Depending on their location, obviously. You could try a smaller company like Enerlux, who makes a very good fiberglass window. Check our "best replacement windows" section to see the variety of companies and models we recommend.

The other option is to call up your Lowes, Home Depot and Dixieline and talk to the guys in the window department to see if they know of any companies who you can order direct from. Simonton may have a program and if you could get their high end Impressions or Reflections line, this would be a quality window to install in your home.

Enerlux Windows vs Krestmark

My husband and I are preparing to have replacement windows installed. We live in Atoka, OK. The Krestmark 200 series was recommended, so we had an installer come out and give us an estimate and discuss the Windows with us. I am not thrilled with the thick frame that screams replacement window nor am I happy about the 10 year warranty. We have a Home Depot rep coming in a week to give us an estimate as well on Simonton.

I've read reviews on Home Depot and must admit that I'm a little hesitant to purchase from them. It's just difficult to know the right thing to do. This isn't a cheap decision by no means. I would truly appreciate your advice and input. Are there other Windows you would recommend? We have to travel out of town for most everything, so that's not an issue if we need to.

Cindy, Krestmark makes an okay vinyl window, really nothing special. I would rather see you go with many of the Simonton models over the Krestmark personally, although I'm not a huge proponent of HD installation. This isn't to say that there aren't some good installers that subcontract out with HD, but in general the company pays a low per window rate that can lead to less than optimal results.

I do have three brands that I would recommend in your neck of the woods. Gilkey, Don Young and Enerlux. Google, for instance, "gilkey windows in atoka oklahoma" and see if any local companies carry them -- same goes for the other two. None of these is going to be less expensive than the Krestmark (or probably the Simonton), but they should offer much better long term value. With Enerlux, you may have to get a bid or two and then give them your dimensions over the phone to get your bid and then find a local installer. Enerlux is going to be expensive, but they offer pretty amazing performance.

Try these three and see what you get. Feel free to send me your bids once you get them and I'll throw in my two cents.

Enerlux Windows Recommendation

I'm looking for a company to install Enerlux fiberglass windows in the Dupont Historic District of Northwest Washington, DC. Our 1980's brick building is not historic but we are prohibited from using vinyl windows that can be seen from the street by historic preservation rules. (Enerlux windows are similar to Fiberframe windows in appearance.) We have about 98 wood casement windows plus four french doors and two sliding doors to replace so it's a pretty big job.

The problem is finding an installer as Enerlux doesn't make recommendations. Somebody whose installed Inline or Fiberframe windows could probably handle our job. I am the president of the condo board and am organizing the project. I also considered Inline, Fiberframe, Alpen, Fibertec, and Marvin Infinity. The Enerlux headquarters rep has been extremely helpful in providing quotes and other product information.

Hi Lawrence, I've never heard of Enerlux Windows And Doors, but I love their website and their performance data (what there was of it) looked impressive. Those must be expensive windows, I can see why finding the right installer would be such an important task. I find that interesting that Enerlux doesn't provide recommendations for installer of their products seeing how that would make a huge difference in how their windows and doors are perceived by the end consumer over time.

At any rate, I'll tell you who I would call first for an estimate, WOW. They are right in your neck of the woods and the owner of the company is REALLY knowledgable on all aspects of windows, sound proofing, performance, etc. He sells Okna and one other brand perhaps, but I'm sure he would come out and give you a quote on the job or be able to provide you with a good reference or two on the job.

He seems to be by all accounts an honest person and should steer you right. Please let me know your experience (I actually don't know him, just his reputation on many of the window forums and boards) as that will help me in the future. Love to hear how the project goes!

Enerlux Windows Prices

Enerlux windows costs are not expensive. For example, pre-discount Enerlux windows of the same size – I got quotes for five windows of various sizes from one of our condos -- were about 1/3rd the price of Marvin Integrity. In an effort to compete with Inline windows (now my second choice) Enerlux reduced its prices -- assuming a whole-building job (98 windows). I can provide you more information on the pricing if you like.

I don't know why Enerlux doesn't provide recommendations for installers. My guess is that it doesn't want to take responsibility for anything an installer might do. I hope the local installer who I contacted can help out.
