Simonton 5050 vs Soft Lite Windows

I have had four different window guys come to the house. First, Simonton 5050 the second Soft Lite both replace by razor cut between window and dry wall from the inside--both quotes around $7000. Third guys said don't need to replace windows, but I need to have glass only replaced in three at $300 per window. Fourth guy said everyone else is installing windows incorrectly, and I need to have all the trim work completely removed and windows cut out from the outside to the frame--$12000 quote. How do you install replacement windows? I have one broken seal, windows sweat, and they are builder grade, metal, double pane windows installed in 1991. Should I repair or replace?

Jennifer, it sounds like you have run the gamut in terms of the recommendations for installation of replacement windows. The first two estimates are suggesting a retrofit replacement window, which replaces the window, without touching the existing sills, frames and/or exterior casing. You do lose some glass area when the new replacements go in, but if done correctly, you won't lose much.

The third is simply replacing the glass and the fourth is suggesting a full frame replacement. The full frame replacement is only necessary if the sills and casings are in bad shape. Are they? I'm assuming it's wood so any local handyman should be able to tell you what sort of shape they are in.

Asking what the right course of action is is a tough one without knowing more about the project specifics. My suggestion would be to get a few more bids and see if you can't get more of a consensus from local installers. It, unfortunately, may be the case that you are in that gray area where all three solutions are correct. I would probably avoid paying $300 per window to replace the glass. You should be able to get the 5050 series with the retrofit installation for what, $400 or so. The 5050 is an okay window, the newer Asure model from Simonton is a slightly better option that ought to be available.

Simonton Asure vs Sunrise windows

My husband and I are near Washington DC and we are trying to decide between Sunrise windows and Simonton Asure windows. All will be double-hung. Unfortunately, we can't get the extruded color we want from either of them. The windows on the back of our house are Andersen Renewal and they do have the right color, but we don't want to spend that kind of money again. What would you recommend if the prices end up close?

Janice, I am going to assume that you are looking at the entry level Sunrise Essentials, which would be the closest comparison to the Simonton Asure window. The standard Sunrise window and the upgraded models such as the Vanguard, Verde and Restorations are all a whole other level above the Asure model.

I'm not exactly sure which color you are looking for, but Okna is an excellent manufacturer that will be available in the Washington DC area and offers quite a few exterior color options, including brown, white, bronze, sandstone, cocoa, almond, and some other custom colors. I believe that there are several local dealers who carries the okna brand and they can bring out window samples for you to take a look at, touch, feel, operate etc. In all likelihood, the local rep will just bring out a white as a sample, but they should have an Okna Delaer book that will show examples of the colors they carry.

If that doesn't work out, let me know and I can help you further. This is where I'd start though...
