Amongst All Vinyl Windows

New South Windows

The company sells what they call their eVantage and iVantage vinyl windows and doors. The eVantage is their vinyl replacement option, while the iVantage is the company's impact window. Their windows come standard with the following features: a warm edge spacer, Cardinal LoE3 366 glass, double weatherstripping, and a foam filled sash and frame. All nice features to be sure. But I don't know what the actual window is - and it's driving me nuts so if you know, please write me and tell me!

"During 2020, New South Windows Solutions was acquired by PGT, which has been buying up quite a few companies in the past decade -- Sunrise being the other notable acquisition."

New South Windows Prices

As you will see from some of the consumer price bids below, NSWS window prices tend to be relatively high in comparison to many of their competitors -- Simtonton, Custom Window Systems, and PGT to name a few. This price sampling is too small to take as gospel though, so let's see how their pricing shakes out going forward.

New South Window Solution Complaints

NewSouth tends to throw out a high initial bid during the sales presentation. Later on, they knock it way down to their promotional price (a trait they share with Apex Energy Solutions, also a direct to consumer company). This has led to consumer complaints over how they market and sell their products.

New South Window Solution vs Renewal

What is up, Dane? I was wondering what your take on New South Windows was? Specifically, how they compare with the company like Renewal by Anderson. The renewal bid was quite a bit more, and I wondered if that was worth it to go with renewal over new south just because they’re a bigger and better known company. Thanks so much.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bobby, it’s an interesting question to raise and I think one worth investigating. The issue I have with New South is I don’t actually know what window they’re installing. I’ve been searching for this information for quite some time and so far I have not come up with anything definitive. NSWS gets pretty darn good reviews and I obviously like this about them. For me, Renewal tends to be much too expensive for the quality of window you’re getting.

I think my advice would be to keep both these bids, but get a few more and then circle back to me with all the summaries of your bids, and we can take it from there. In the meantime, I would love it if you would ask the NSWS rep what window they are actually putting in people's homes. My understanding is that they don’t make their own windows, but instead are installing a relabeled window that is made and marketed just for them.

Kevin, I'm not sure I want to endorse either of those right now. Maybe the NSW, but let's collect more bids first. I'll send you my list.

NSW Cost Quote

Hey guys, just got a bid from New South Windows for $920 per window and that includes installation tear out and haulaway fees. Do you think this is a reasonable price? Love the new south windows reviews by the way.

Donnie - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Donnie, I think it sounds high for the overall quality of NewSouth, and what I know about them. Admittedly, this is not all that much. What I would say is this: I would certainly collect a few more bids in order to confirm or deny this this is really the only way to know.

New South Windows vs Champion

Good morning Dane, we live in San Antonio Tx. The house is 30 years old with original builder windows. The facade of the house is stucco. Having said that, we also have 3 estimates for 23 windows not including stucco repair if needed. (which most probably will be needed.)

1. Anlin Del Mar - 33K. (cardinal low E 366)
2. New South window Solutions 9000 series - 29K
3. Champion Comfort 365 Windows - 38K

Your thoughts, recommendations and list of good great windows please. Thank you!

Sami - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sami, my problem is that I still don't know about the quality of the window from NSWS. I get the sense that it's not top notch, but admittedly I don't know the answer to this for sure. I do know that Anlin makes a very good window and the Del Mar series is excellent. This is where I would go myself - and that is assuming that the install company is a quality outfit and you feel comfortable with them. (Anlin Windows Reviews)

Hey Dane. Thanks for the information. I used your form below to request additional quotes. Thank you for that. Question, how do you feel about New South Windows? I know they were purchased by PGT but not sure about quality, warranty etc.

Your thoughts?

Norbert - Homeowner - from 2022

[Website Editor Reply]

Norbert, I don't know much about NewSouth, I don't hear about them frequently, but when I do a good search I'm not impressed by what comes up -- look at the yelp reviews, they are horrible. If this were my project, they would be a hard pass for me...thanks for the heads up on the fact that PGT purchased them a few years back -- PGT Windows generally has a good reputation. Perhaps NSW under the new management has improved, but I just don't have that information.

Who else did you receive a bid from?

New South Windows vs PGT

Dear Dane, I’ve just been looking through your site regarding replacement options in Florida. I live in Palm City and would like to replace some of my existing windows with hurricane strength impacts.

I’ve just made an appointment with NSWS to give me an estimate (their TV ads are very impressive). However, I don’t know if they are a reputable company beyond the ads.

NewSouth says it manufactures as well as installs, which appeals to me.

I see you recommend PGT, CWS and Simonton - shall I contact them as well to give me a quote? Do they all do impact window series?

I’m looking for a company that does the job right and get replacements that I don’t have to cover with shutters when a hurricane is approaching.

Thank you for any help you can suggest.

Lisa, here is my Florida window replacement recommendations list.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2022

New South Windows Reviews

Hello, We are in the process of getting bids to replace 10 windows & a sliding glass door on our home in SE Florida. I'm finding the options and opinions of salespeople are really confusing making it hard to choose. here are my concerns.

1. double paned argon gas filled insulated impact or single paned impacts? Will the insulated make a difference in FL?
2. Low E coatings? which one (if any) makes sense for our FL climate?
3. Vinyl or aluminum frames? How well will the vinyl hold up? Some are saying it will yellow & crack over time or warp making it hard to open.
4. What brand is best? So far we have bids for NewSouth Window Solutions vinyl insulated impacts, CWS 3700 series aluminum frame impact & PGT impact windows.

The CWS windows cost bid was $9,000, while it was $17,000 from NewSouth Window Solutions. So far I'm leaning towards the CWS if the difference in the insulation values isn't t much and it's a reputable product.

Love to know how the match up between New South Windows vs PGT. All guidance is much appreciated. Thank you.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dan, there is a lot of information out there and it can be very confusing. You definitely want a double paned window, but there aren't many single panes out there anymore. There are single strength or double strength panes of glass however, and it's preferable to get a double strength glass. Insulated foam frames will make some difference in terms of the overall strength of the frame and will help a bit with energy efficiency. I would pay for the upgrade if its $25 or less per window.

Most decent come with low-e glass. You can upgrade to low-e2 or low-e3, but it's not necessary. I say the standard low-e glass is a good way to go.

Vinyl is preferable in my opinion in Florida. A decent to well made vinyl window will not yellow or crack over time. Proof of this can be found in the lifetime warranty that most vinyl window options carry. I cheap vinyl window will see more wear and tear over time. Aluminum is very strong, but it's not very energy efficient. I would stick with vinyl from a well respected manufacture.

I have never heard of NewSouth Window Solutions so I won't comment on them. CWS and PGT are both very solid picks. I would tend to go with the PGT impact windows if the decision were mine. CWS windows would be my backup, but again I would stick with vinyl over aluminum personally.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017

[Dan's Reply]

Dane, Thank you for you input, it does help.

Newsouth manufactures & sells windows only in Florida using subs for installations. (The others I'm considering use company employees) From my research, the windows seem to be decent, but they've gotten a bit of flack for poor installs and service. One of the principles of NewSouth was combative with customers on social media. Because of that and a much higher price point, I've eliminated them.

Now it's pretty much trying to decide if the Insulated vinyl PGTs are worth the extra $4,500 compared to the single aluminum frame impacts from CWS. I don't mind paying a bit more for better quality & benefit if I can justify the difference.

Thanks again.
