Editor's Vistamark Window Review

Vistamark is a small window manufacturing company in Waxahachie, TX. They were founded in 2014. They sell a vinyl window called the Endura. Beyond this, I know very little of the company in terms of quality or craftsmanship.

Are Vistamark windows any good? I'd say it's too early to know whether Vistamark windows are good or not. I'd like to see more performance data on them. For now, I would say they are a mid range vinyl window manufacturer -- which isn't the worst thing by any stretch.

Vistamark Vinyl Windows get 4 out of 5 stars based on the 11 Vistamark windows reviews below.

VistaMark Endura Price Quote

Hey Dane, my daughter is looking to replace her windows in her first home in Austin. They are getting a quote of $17,000(cash) for 24 windows of various sizes from VistaMark for their Endura product.

2 questions - 1)do you have a recommended company to use to install/quote windows in Austin and 2)I know VistaMark is a young company - would you recommend them or would you have another manufacturer you would recommend in a similar price range?

Thanks so much for your help.

Hey Paul, I have been hearing about VistaMark, but don't know enough about them to say one way or the other. Personally, I would collect the bid and consider it -- but would then go on and get three more for comparison sake. I hate using an "unknown" company/window brand when there are so many known options out there. Here are my Texas based recommendations:

Vistamark Windows vs. Pella

Hi Dane, windows – confusing world! So recently I put in some vistamark windows which I see you don't recommend – I appreciate that but I will be selling the home in a few years and price point was important – the windows seem ok to me but what the heck do I know.

More importantly I purchased another home which is very likely my forever home – 20 – 30 years God willing. This is a lake front home where I could put in picture windows (wood frame) 9' wide x 6'6" tall – Qty 2 – everyone tells me I they cannot do a window that big. Have I not found the right provider or manufacturer? Recommendation?

I also have the same opening where I need air flow – my first thought was a slider to keep the vertical glass clear of horizontals framing – they say cant do that either??

Now we throw in a 9' wide sliding door

Other windows brick encased

Total is one 9' slider and 19 windows

I have a pella quote for 250 series from lowes for $22,820 and vistamark $15,200

I feel and agree with you the vistamark is questionable – with pella yes paying for the name.

I am ok with the 22k cost but wonder if I can get a better window for the price

Please send me your list and recommendations

I have a lot of shade – aluminum – black could be cool – out in the country – no rules

Did I see where you recommend aluminum over vinyl? In the Houston texas area

Tom - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

Tom, that's a huge opening and many manufacturers don't make windows that big for fear that the frame will sag over time -- the aluminum windows could probably span that distance -- I would ask each company that comes out and just see what they say. In Houston, aluminum or vinyl is the way to go but I don't think there is a definitive answer on which is best -- for aluminum get a bid from a Don Young dealer on their 8200 series and an NT dealer on their twinsulator series.

Here is my list of good and great windows in case you want to continue your search. [list pulled]

Vistamark Windows in Austin

Hi Dane, first of all, your website is amazing and has a wealth of information. It's been a huge resource for us as we look at our options for window replacement so thank you for that!!

We are in Austin and met with a local company who install Vistamark windows. They mentioned that their rep recently met with you so that you could review their product. I don't see it yet on your website and am wondering if you have a quick summary for me about what you think about their product.

We love the thinner frame profile of their window which is a high priority for us. We are also getting a quote on Simonton Daylight Max which has a thinner profile.

Any info you have would be so greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Lana - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lana, we have not met with any Vistamark reps, so they must have us confused with someone else. So I don't yet know enough about the company to say yea or nay. They were only started in 2014. I personally wouldn't take the risk when there are company's with great track records, but that's just my own opinion. For a thinner frame, you may want to look at the Sunrise Restorations model. This is a great option.

Vistamark Windows Cost

We recently got a bid in Dallas, Texas for either a Vistamark window for $22K or a Wincore 5400 for $19k. This was for 15 double hung windows.

Vistamark Windows Price Quote

Hi Dane, I recently got two bids for windows on my home and I'm wondering how to tell whether the higher price windows are worth it. We have 19 windows to replace, some are larger picture windows and only a couple will require tempered glass. So far I got two quotes - one from a local small business for $19,800 for Vistamark windows/Cardinal glass, the other is from the local Window World franchise for $15,800. Is it worth it to go with a more expensive window? Would you recommend we continue to shop around for more quotes?


Sarah - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sarah, I don't consider Vistamark or WW to be very high quality products. I wouldn't pay $1000 a window for the Vistamark. I'd keep shopping myself.

Vistamark Windows Cost Bid

I have 12 windows and 1 storm door. Bid is $12,100 for Vistamark windows.

Lynne - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lynne, in my opinion, Vistamark is a lower end window so paying roughly $800 per window is very expensive for this product. I would continue your search. Here are my San Antonio recommendations: list redacted.

Vistamark Composite Vinyl Window Prices

Price shown on photo is for 20 composite vinyl Vistamark windows, 2 of them are privacy and a couple were tempered. After viewing your website, the quote seems high. My zip code is 78154. $26K or $21K if I pay in cash.

Elizabeth - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Elizabeth, I think paying $1000 for any Vistamark window is crazy. I also love the nearly $5,000 price difference for cash...I never know how companies get away with this on their books, but I digress. I'd keep looking and here are my Texas recommendations: [List Redacted -- contact us directly (Dane or Tim) for our Texas window recommendations.]

Vistamark Single Hung Double Pane Windows

Hi Dane. We are in the process of replacing 30+ year old single pane aluminum windows in our house in the Clear Lake area of Houston. Being new to Houston, we want to make the right decision regarding our window choice.

We first wanted high energy efficiency which led us to look at vinyl but we want the window to be able to withstand this heat. We get the morning and early afternoon sun directly on the back of our home which is pretty much all windows. 2 of them will be large picture windows and have to be tempered glass as they are within 18 inches of the floor. Is vinyl going to be able to hold up to these conditions?

We have approximately 30 windows and have 2 quotes on two different types of windows:

Vistamark single hung/double pane White vinyl windows from-$16,300 (366 cardinal glass/LoE glass filled with Argon gas/All sashes with aluminum reinforcement/surpass Windstorm test/Lifetime warranty)

NT Twinsulator Single hung/double pane Aluminum Windows-$19,000 (any color/lifetime warranty)

We would love to do black (No grids) with the red brick but would not even consider anything other than white for vinyl due to the fact that if you ever had to paint it, the warranty would be void.

Any advice you can give on type of window (aluminum vs vinyl) as well as going with a color in the aluminum version would be most helpful. This is such a task. We were shown a map that we are just outside the “windstorm” zone but close enough that it would be a good idea. I definitely agree with that but it appears either of these windows will fit that bill. HELP!!!! What would you do?!?!

Lou Ann - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lou Ann, I have to say that I don't know enough about Vistamark to really endorse them. I have been getting quite a few questions about them lately. Basically, they have been in business since 2014, which isn't enough time to say whether their windows hold up over time. If I had a project, I would be reticent to go with an unproven company when there are others out there that have a much longer track record.

The NT Twinsulator is good thermally broken aluminum window. I would probably take the Don Young 8200 series over the Twinsulator, but they are both nice products.

For Houston, I prefer aluminum over vinyl. They won't meet Energy Star guidelines or meet code requirements for most municipalities, but they do provide excellent heat resistance, longevity, and a narrow frame.

The two series I mentioned above are two of my favorite aluminum windows. I would be very careful about a black aluminum window in all that heat. Aluminum is very strong, but check with the companies on whether they even offer or warranty those darker colors.

The other option you may want to look at is a Sunrise vinyl window. They make a very nice vinyl window and the Restorations comes in a nice narrow frame.

VistaMark Endurance Series

Hi Tim, in one of your responses is said you felt the NT window was the better option over a Milgard window. The same company that recommended NT has offered another option. It's the VistaMark Endurance Series, Sun Shield high-performance vinyl with Cool Pane 3. For the same number of windows the quote is $9,455.77. The NT quote was $10,7000. Both are sandstone color. Do you have a preference between these two?

Nancy - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nancy, I don't know much about Vistamark except that they are a new company. The rule of thumb in the window industry is that newer companies will have some quality issues compared with companies that have been around longer. If this were my call, I would either due my due diligence digging into the quality of Vistamark or take the safer route and go with the NT Presidential series. Probably the latter of the two.

Vista Mark Windows vs. Zen Nirvana

Hi! Not sure if you have a few minutes but I would appreciate some input. So I received another quote this time for Sunrise and Vista Mark windows. So comparing Sunrise to Zen, which one would you recommend or lean towards? The Sunrise dealer also recommended Vista Mark windows since both Sunrise and Vista Mark utilize Cardinal glass.

The quote for 6 Vista Mark windows is $5000, 6 Sunrise windows would be $6,200, and finally, 6 Zen windows would come in at around $4,300. I find that the more quotes I get, the more information load is happening at this point. Apparently, everyone has the better window :). Thanks!

Agnes - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Agnes, I've been hearing more about Vistamark windows lately, but I know they've only been manufacturing for 6 years. Without knowing more about them, I can't endorse them. Often, it takes a decade or so to really dial in the manufacturing process.

The Sunrise is the better window over the Zen Nirvana (Soft-Lite Classic series). However, I'm not sure it's worth $2K. In fact, I think I'd go with the Zen Nirvana for $4300...if the Zen branch had good online reviews.
