Lindsay Comfort Series

Hello Dane, I'm looking to replace three windows in the Seattle, WA area. Two basement and one kitchen (swap out of an old garden type window with a single hung window.) Any preference or thoughts on the Lindsay Comfort Series, Milgard Trinsic Series, and the Ply Gem Pro series. Appreciate your help and suggestions.

Thank You.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steven, honestly, the three options you mention: the Lindsay Comfort, Milgard Trinsic, and Ply Gem Pro are very similar in quality to one another. If this were my project, I would generally rate the products similar and therefore turn my focus to the company doing the installation. Look for reputation, time in business, and online reviews as the metrics by which to judge which company will provide the best job, warranty, etc.

If you put my feet to the fire though, I would rate them in this order: Milgard Trinsic, Lindsay Comfort Series, Ply Gem Pro.

Thank you for your response. I'm pretty much sold on Einar Johanson. Would the price be the same as the one you quoted if we go with the Milgard Trinsic series? Thanks again for your help.

Steven - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steven, the reviews on Einar Johanson looked great! I don't think I ever quoted you any prices on the Milgard Trinsic. I do like the Milgard Trinsic series though, very nice looking.

Good luck on your upcoming project!

Lindsay Crownview Windows

Hi Dane, I'm looking to replace 15 double hung windows in various sizes. I don't want to spend a lot on them, as I'm selling the house. I was quoted on Lindsay Crownview windows, which I believe is their budget vinyl windows. I couldn't find any of the ratings on these, and wanted to know if they are decent for the price. I've been quoted $9800 for them.

Since, I'm moving I don't want to make a huge investment, but I don't want to install junk windows.

Thanks for your insight.

Lisa - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lisa, Lindsay seems like a solid enough brand. I think you're right about the Crownview being their entry level window. Spending $650 on entry level windows is a quite a bit. You should be able to have Window World come in and put in a window for $350 if you're moving (not that I'm necessarily advocating this...)

I have dealt with a handful of consumers over the past months who have had quotes on the Okna 500 for $500 to $600 per window and that's an expcellent vinyl window. Where are you located and have you had any additional quotes to comapre this one to?

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Dane, thanks so much for your response. I haven't heard of OKNA before, but I will look them up. I did get comparison quotes and because I'm not an expert on windows, most of the quotes were more than double the one I received on the Lindsay Crownview windows.

I've heard horror stories on window replacements and cheap bad windows. So, I am leery of just going with whatever. Like I said, I'm hoping to move in the next 6mo, so these are really just to get new windows into the house. The current windows are vinyl and most have lost their ability to stay up and are so drafty. But, in the event I don't move right away, I just don't want to be stuck with bad windows.

I reside in a suburb of Chicago

Lindsay Pinnacle Window Quotes

Dane, hi, we have need of 12 full frame replacement windows and have narrowed our search down to two bids. One is on the Lindsay Pinnacle window for $12600, and the other is for the ProVia Endure for $12,300.

Nancy - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nancy, the Lindsay Pinnacle and ProVia Endure and are both good vinyl windows. I'd pick the ProVia Endure myself, unless I felt like the company installing the Lindsay was going to do a much better job.

Lindsay Pinnacle Windows Price Quote

We are replacing all the windows in our 1956 brick ranch with vinyl windows. Here are the rough specs for our project:

1 picture window with double-hung on each side
1 smaller picture window
3 twin double-hung
6 double-hung (different sizes)

We have gotten several quotes, and we really like one of the installers but were hoping he'd come down a little in price. He quoted us $13,400 for the above project with Lindsay Pinnacle and later called and said he could also do Pella 250s for the same price. When he came out, it was all about Lindsay, which we had never heard of before. But we were sold on that, but now with Pella in the picture, should we consider them instead? Could he be sweetening the deal -- or just trying to make it look that way?

Julie - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Julie, I'm going to say you have 15 windows -- I counted the double hungs as two each and 2 for the top combination window. I would contend that paying $890 for a Lindsay Pinnacle or a Pella 250 is WAY TOO MUCH. I would say that the Lindsay Pinnacle is a decent enough window, let's call it mid range. The Pella 250 is essentially the company's low end vinyl window. Paying above say $600 for either of these windows strikes me as excessive and that is if there are some installation intricacies involved.

Of course, I don't know how much is involved with your installation. I think you need some additional bids to compare this quote to. Companies I like include Okna, Soft-Lite, Sunrise, Polaris, Kensington, HiMark, Zen, and Vytex. I'd do a search for local companies who rep these brands and see what else is out there because I think you can do better than this.

Lindsay Lexington Windows vs. Walsh

Dane, Thank you for all of your help. Here are the final results from which I will need to make a decision.

I was able to get 3 more quotes and some information on the Walsh Windows. The brand I was quoted on has a U-factor of 0.20, SHGC or 0.24, VT of 0.39, condensation Resistance of 74 and Air Leakage of <=0.3 - from the NFRC Website. Again this cost was quoted at about $13,500.

The first quote is for Soft-Lite. Again, the quotes seem outrageous. For the top of the line window I received a quote of $28,000. That is 15 Double Hung and 2 Picture Windows.

The only way to get Okna 800s in Wisconsin is to go through AHT. I talked with the Okna sales department and apparently AHT has exclusive territory to sell the Okna brand in Wisconsin. They only sell the Okna 800 series composite windows and the quote was $32,300.

My final quote was for the Lindsay company Lexington brand window. Triple pane, (except the largest picture window double pane), triple glazed LoE 366, Argon filled and either the Air Leakage or U-factor of 0.17. The quoted price is $17,200. Lindsay does have a "NFRC Certified" sticker for their windows but I am not able to find them on the NFRC Website.

I actually signed a contract for these windows last night, May 30, 2017. I have 3 business days to cancel the project, which is Friday June 2, 2017, and I am hoping to hear back from you. If the Walsh 6000 series window with metal spacers is very comparable to the Lindsay Lexington window with non-metallic spacers I would go with the Walsh. If the Lexington is way better than the Walsh, I will stay with the Lexington.

Jennie - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

If the choice is between Lindsay windows and Walsh, I would go with the Walsh. I have heard a bit more about them then Lindsay. The Walsh Tundra seems to be a good window, but again, I don't know a ton about either one.

Lindsay Windows vs Sunrise Windows

Is anyone familiar with Lindsay windows? I have a 1950 bungalow and so far have had a few contractors give me bids on replacement window. So far, the brands they use are Sunrise, Thermal Industries and Lindsay. I like the price bid on the Lindsay, and how they look, but I've never heard of them so I wanted to try and get an idea as to quality.

So just trying to get some idea as to how they match up to these other brands.

Mo - Homeowner - from 2015

[Contractor's Response]

Lindsay Windows aren't bad in any way, but they are not going to be in the same class as the Sunrise vinyl windows, which are some of the better or best vinyl windows on the market. I've installed Lindsay vinyl windows on a few jobs and they are a decent option. I couldn't say how they compare to Thermal Industries, which I have no knowledge of.

Bob - Contractor - from 2015

Lindsay vs Pella Windows

I have a bunch of bids on 22 windows, all different shapes and sizes, although most of them are double hung.

Alside Sheffield Window: $8,650

Pella Impervia: $14,700

Sunrise Standard Window: $11,900

Marvin Integrity: $13,400

Lindsay Sunview: $9,990

So far, I've eliminate the Pella and Alside bids. and Pella are out. I really like how the Marvin Integrity looks and feel like the price I received is pretty good, based on some of the numbers I've seen on this site. The Lindsay seems like the best value, but that's just because of the overall price. The numbers were pretty good on the Lindsay - U-factor 0.29, SHGC 0.22, and VT 0.5. Is the Lindsay a good deal with these numbers or do I spend more for the better windows?

Brian - Homeowner - from 2014

[Contractor's Response]

The Lindsay's performance numbers are decent, not bad, kind of right in that mid range vinyl window space. You are right, the price you were quoted on the Marvin Integrity is very good. I would either go with this one or the Sunrise myself. If these are out of your range, then my choice would be the Lindsay, which it sounds like it is. I think one of these three options is your best bet.

Lindsay 3100 vs Alside Excalibur Series

I'm replacing 10 windows with vinyl double-hungs. I've had 3 local companies come out to provide me quotes so far that included Alside Excalibur, Lindsay 3100, and Silverline 8500. All of the quotes were very similar in price. Which is the best?

Wendy - Homeowner - from 2013

[Contractor's Response]

Of the three windows you mentioned, I'd have to say the Lindsay would be my choice. I'm not familiar per se with the 3100 model so I can't speak to this directly. Having said that, I'm giving the nod to the Lindsay because I really don't like the Alside Excalibur or the Silverline 8500 for homeowners who are looking to maximize their long term value. You may want to get a couple more bids and see what other window brands are available in your area.
