KHPP Ascent Windows Reviews


KHPP Ascent Vinyl Windows

Hi Dane, we just came across your site - it's a great resource! We purchased our home in September and the original wood casement windows (Hurd Windows) have a number of broken seals and nearly all are developing frost in the cold temps.

The house was built in 2002, majority is brick exterior in the front, and windows are clay/beige color with grids. Attached photos. We despise the maintenance and cost of wood but are concerned the vinyl replacements will look too chunky on the exterior. Are there any vinyl brands you'd recommend? We would stick with the same exterior color and opt for white interior.

We have approx 40 total windows. Renewal by Anderson in the first 10 minutes of our meeting said we'd be looking at $100K (not an option). There's a local company we like offering KHPP Ascent Vinyl Windows, but he cautioned us about the loss of glass and how it'd look from the exterior. We only received a Marvin wood replacement quote from him so far, we're waiting on the vinyl quote.

Really appreciate any suggestions you have. This wasn't an anticipated expense.

Thank you!

[Site Editor's Answer]

Stephanie, I do understand about the loss of glass and yes this is an issue. I would get bids from more local companies and insist that they bring a sample replacement insert window with them. I would take my tape and measure from brick edge to glass area of my existing windows and jot that down on a piece of paper. Then I would measure each replacement window from edge to glass to get a clear picture how they would compare.

The KHPP Ascent Vinyl Windows are nice, but yes you will lose glass area. Off hand, a thinner replacement window would be the Sunrise Restorations.

[Here is a list of recommended vinyl windows - contact Tim for his replacement window list.]

KHPP Genesis Windows Reviews


KHPP Genesis vs. Vytex Potomac HP

Hi Dane, my husband and I recently bought a house in Northern Virginia and need to replace our 5-lite bow windows(2 casement windows and 3 picture windows). We are first time home buyers and don't know much about it. I am so glad to find your website and have learned a lot of information about windows. We got two quotes from different contractors. Their prices are pretty close.

I am still not quite sure which window manufacturer will be a better choice for our needs, even though I tried to do my research online. Any insights will be appreciated. Thank you very much!

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nicole, congratulations on your recent home purchase, you are on your way! So both windows, the KHPP Genesis and the Vytex Potomac-HP, are both excellent. I'm not sure I have a clear winner for you in this regard, I think you will be well served by either. I might say the Potomac-hp over the Genesis is you put a gun to my head.

If this were my project, I would make the decision based on the reviews/ratings/reputation of the contractors and their crews. I might ask each one how often they put in bow windows and how much they like their carpenter (or whomever they are using for the work), and how detail oriented each one is. Hopefully this line of research and/or questioning will give you a winner. Product wise, I don't think you can lose!

KHPP Genesis Price Quote

Hi Dane, I promise this will be the last time I bother you, got a final quote for windows from Ferguson Windows in the Chicago area. They carry KHPP Genesis series and the quote for 15 white vinyl windows and 1 picture window was $10,726.03. They said I shouldn't replace the other picture window. I'm trying to get some warranty info for this quote but it seems to be the best one so far. I'd appreciate your input.

Thanks!

Bryan - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bryan, I think this is a solid deal. The Genesis is a good series and Ferguson Windows gets excellent reviews. The window should come with a limited lifetime warranty as is typical of vinyl windows. I'd say this is a good window slash installer combination!

KHPP Windows vs. Simonton

Dear Dane, I need to replace the windows in my pool room. I am looking at Simonton, KHPP, and maybe Sunrise (if I can get this brand).

What would you recommend for a room like this that tends to be high in moisture?

Lisa - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lisa, a high quality vinyl window won't react to the heavy moisture, although you should wipe the window(s) down periodically. KHPP makes an excellent window, as does Sunrise. Simonton is a good brand, but I would suggest one of their premium window options; either their Reflections 5500 series or their Impressions 9800. I'd get bids from everyone, and then compare the prices and compare the installation companies.

KHPP Windows vs. Marvin Windows

Hi Dane, I have been reading many reviews for replacement windows on your website. The information you provide is invaluable, so I'm hoping you can give me some additional insight and your opinions. We have 29 yr old wood Weather Shield windows that need replacing. Some of the windows have failed for a few years already - can feel the breeze and even see the outside with one window.

We've considered Marvin Fiberglass but the cost is $50k+ and have a quote on KHPP Meridian vinyl windows so far for $29,500.(see details below). Waiting to find out which windows are best from OKNA since we have 2 different installation types, before we get the quote. Have learned that OKNA is the top choice by you and others. Our concern with vinyl is it will take away from the farmhouse style look we have as well as losing a lot of glass. We plan on staying in the house at least 10 years.

Here is my question:

The front of the house and the side has stucco and the back is vinyl siding. What is the proper way to replace the windows with the stucco? The guy that installs OKNA windows gave us an explanation and reasons why it could be tricky, which none of the others (including the 2 with Marvins) addressed. The guy with the OKNA's said the others will likely just caulk it up to fill in gaps which isn't really the best way to do it with the stucco. South facing back is full sun and gets very hot. Front is North facing and mostly shade. (we're in central NJ). Which OKNA's would you recommend?

We have 33 windows so it's a big job. Here is the breakdown: 6- 32x66 and 2- 24x66 cottage windows and 9- 36 x 55 + 2- 24x55 windows across the front and side all in stucco. The back with the siding has 2 sets of casement windows (23x34 and 19x47), 1- 24x37, 2- 36x61, and 5- 36x53, 4 Basement Hopper windows plus 1 patio slider (extra$4500 for Andersen). Includes North Barrier Glass package (with grids), foam filled multi-chamber frame and sash. Is this a good price?

Would you choose vinyl OKNA or KHPP Meridian, Fiberglass Marvins or something else?

Appreciate your time and any information you can give me.

Thanks.

Susan - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Susan. I really do like Marvin Infinity windows, but they are quite pricey. I think you can get an on par quality window for much less money. I definitely like the KHPP Meridian vinyl window. I’m not exactly sure which of the Okna series I would compare that window to…maybe the 400 or 500 series.

The Okna 500, 600, 700, 800, and Starmark composite windows are all really high quality. Any of those would be a great window to have.

Another brand to get a bid on is Ideal Vinyl Windows, which is a NJ based company. Their premium windows are great and often quite well priced.

Stucco can be tricky for sure. Insert windows where they cut out the existing windows and insert the new windows and drill through the frame and caulk around it is often done. This is much cheaper and easier…not necessarily a bad approach, but there are some downsides.

Taking out the existing windows and installing full frame windows with the nailing flange is the most thorough approach but it is tricky with stucco. You have to take out a 6 to 8 inch surround of the stucco, pull out the window, install the new one, flash it, then re-stucco it, patch any problem spots and then paint. This last step is a bear because stucco changes color over time and matching the color is a real art. (I have stucco on my house and it gives me fits and starts to think of the process. When I replace all of my windows I will likely coordinate with painting the entire house, which is a huge expense as well.)

My advise is to get a couple more bids and pepper them all with these questions until you find the answer that you feel most comfortable with…send me the bids and let me know what they say and lets go from there!

KHPP Windows vs. Sierra Pacific Windows

I have a friend in the window business. He worked for manufacturers (marvin and KHPP) , distributors and now signed on with a company to sell within the For Worth area. He encouraged me to go with Sierra Pacific over Marvin as he thought the quality was as good or better and cost less. He discouraged me from using vinyl because of the the look and quality of my home. However I think since he's in the business he has a different perspective.

My wife and I were discussing the windows and neither of use ever thought or cared about the windows in the homes we've bought. Rarely is it mentioned by real estate agents, unless of course, it's Marvin. However, even then it resulted in just a shoulder shrug. We've always come at things from the perspective of is it efficient, does it look nice and will it last. Of course we want quality like everyone else, but we're not inclined to pay more for a brand name, especially if there's something as good or better for less.

Thanks again for your time, the world needs more people like you.

All the best.

Peter - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Peter, Marvin and KHPP are both very good manufacturers, so I get that. Vinyl is definitely not some beautiful material, but windows tend to blend into the background of a home (at least for 90% of homes in America). But you are correct that the ROI is tricky...same with solar although they can save you thousands per year and are never factored into the home price because it doesn't add up to much unless you use the life of the investment...

Anyway, high quality vinyl windows with a wood laminate interior is for me a great middle ground. Most homeowners don't want to pay for the laminate upgrade at all, while others really feel it's worth it.

Shoot me your bids when you receive them and let's take the next step to getting you a quality product that will maximize your investment.

KHPP Meridian vs. Okna 500

Hi Dane, Tim, I have 26 windows total that I'm looking to have replaced and was curious as to your thoughts on value and best option. I'm in Louisville, KY.

I have:

21 double hung

1 octagonal

3 picture

1 half round (over a double a hung)

This is the 'forever' house (15-20 years).

Okna 500 Series - through West Shore Home - $21,998

Okna 600 Series - through West Shore Home - $24,752

Provia Aspect - Through local dealer (Weber Windows) - $20,493

KHPP Meridian - Through local dealer (Windows Plus) - $25,530

The KHPP has a considerably better SHGC @ .19 compared to the Okna and Provia, but I'm not able to see much of a web presence and reviews for them to make me confident that they'll be around for the long term.

My research is pointing me to the Okna 500s but I'm curious to your opinion.

Thanks!

Chad - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Chad, so I would put the Okna 500 at the top of that list, followed by the Okna 600. The ProVia Aspect is a decent window, but as this is your forever home, I think the Okna 500 is definitely worth the extra money (and not that much more money to be honest.)

The Okna 500 is a great window and I don't think you have to go up to the 600 model, unless you really like the look and features and are willing to spend the extra money. The KHPP Meridian is a very good window, but the Okna 500 is more or less as good.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Thanks Dane. If I could get the dealer to price match (or nearly match) the KHPP windows to my OKNA quote, would it be a better value? The SHGC is .19 on the Meridian compared to the .28 on the OKNA. Is this noticeable or simply splitting hairs?

I have a 2 story house on a finished basement with a single HVAC system. The west side of my home is hard to keep cool in the summer,in the evenings so I'm trying to get the best insulating properties out of my windows to keep the temps consistent and from floor to floor.

Thanks again!

Chad - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chad, the SHGC is really just how much heat comes through the window. Hot climates required a lower SHGC and cooler climates want a higher SHGC, although seasons make this figure a bit tougher to figure out. A better indicator of the overall strength and craftsmanship of a window is the air infiltration, how much air gets through the window. The Okna 500 double hung is a .02 I believe, nearly unbeatable.

I'm sure the KHPP Meridian has a very low AI as well, although I don't know the exact numbers on that window.

If this were my project, I would go with the Okna 500 and work with the Okna dealer to get an upgraded glass package on those west-facing windows to keep the SHGC as low as possible.

KHPP Genesis Series Bid

I messed up on one thing, the Ply-Gem windows are around $4500 also. It was a Genesis from KHPP, not sure which company that is was $6175

If I can get the Soft-lite dealer to quit ignoring my quote request I would like to see what they are. What would be a good window and price do you think with them?

Thanks again for all of your help.....

Danny - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Danny, the Genesis is a good entry level window, pretty impressive actually. This is what I would looking at if you are planning to stay in your home long term. Of course, Soft-Lite is the much more recognizable brand and you should definitely get a bid from them.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020

[Danny's Reply]

If the ply-gem, interstate, and Revere are right at the he same price would you still go with the Interstate and Revere over the Ply-gem? All 3 are right at $4500 for 8 windows.

One more question, we're still looking at moving in 5-7 years. How much more would you say was a good price for Softlite windows over the other 3?

Thanks again for your help.

Danny - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

If you are leaving in 7 years, I would spend the least amount and forget about the KHPP and Soft-Lite. Ply Gem, Revere and Interstate Windows, in that order.

KHPP And Kensington HPP Confusion

Hello Dane. Are Kensington HPP and KHPP the same thing? They have two different websites.

I am confused. Do you know the answer?

Thank you again.

Chris - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chris, I know only a little and I agree it's confusing. If you find out more, I'd love to hear it!

Kensington HPP is located in Pennsylvania and sells the Kingston, Huntington, and Quantum II

KPP is located in Halsett Texas, and sells the Genesis, Ascent, and Meridian.

So they seem like two different companies, but I don't think that's true. They must have a connection, but beyond this I don't know. Their history is confusing as well.
