WW sells the Impreza series, which uses Solara 453 glass, foam-filled chambers, and a Duralite Spacer technology. According to the NFRC, the Impreza series is considered an Envirosealed window. Beyond this information, I really can't speak to the quality of their windows.

Window Works Reviews In Tennessee

Hey Dane, hoping you can bring some clarity to the two bids I've collected. 18 windows total. 7 on the back of the house need J-Channel installed. Price includes Colonial style grids. White frames.

ProVia Endure (sold by Armor Xteriors) - $21,312. ProVia Windows Reviews
Okna Eco Pro 600 (sold by Window Works)- $15,835. Okna Reviews

Charles, I did a search for "Window Works reviews Tennessee" and found the company. Excellent reviews for the most part. I aggregated their ratings across four different review sites and they look to be very solid! The Okna 600 Eco Pro is the better window than the ProVia Endure in my opinion -- not by much at all, but still -- the better window for $5.5K less -- all from a company that gets great reviews.

I think this is the winner by quite a could say you got a bid from like Apex Energy solutions that came in at $14.5K and ask them if they would match it...sometimes they'll ask to see the bid though :) Kind of your call if you want to see if you could save some money off that $15.8K Okna window bid.

Chicago Recommendations

Hi Dane, I live in Chicagoland area and I'm looking to replace approximately 40 windows in my house, most are casement windows and rest are pictures. The existing ones are 25 years old, broken seals and hardware and at the end of their lifecycle. We plan to live in the house for approximately 10 more years. I don't think I can afford to replace all at once, but thought it might be best to start with identifying the best cost vs value, the meat and potatoes of the project.

Could you please provide me with your list of good, better and best list. I'm currently getting quotes form Window World, Window Works, Home Depot, Local Contractor who mentioned Alliance which after seeing your reviews I'm not going with them. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Alliance Windows Reviews

Mike, here are my Chicago recommendations. A ten year timeline isn't all that long. I'd shoot for a quality mid range vinyl window.

Window Works Reviews

HI, I've been looking at vinyl replacements and recently have been getting quotes. I'm just not sure what is the best route to go and I'm you hoping you can give some advice. Replacing 10 double hungs, 2 awning, 4 picture and 2 casement, along with 2 sliders. I'm down to 3 quotes and not sure who to go with.

Pella 250 Series for $20K
Simonton 6500 for $24K

Window Work 5100 for $24k

Price isn't my only concern, I'm looking to make the best decision based on quality and cost. Any help is appreciated.

Doug - Homeowner - from 2022

Doug, I think you should “pocket” the bids and keep looking — I think for that price point you should be able to step into a darn good vinyl series — better than the Pella 250 window or 6500 Simonton. I don’t know specifically about the WW 5100 series so I will keep mum on that one.

Here are my good and great recommendations…[list pulled -- email Dane directly for the list.]

Window Works Reviews vs Climate Guard

Hi Dane, I am living in Chicago area and now I am looking for full replacement of my bow (5) and side windows (3). Can you please tell me which one is the best:

Home Depot Simonton 6500: $ 6900
Window Works Impreza $ 11000
Climate Guard $4000 (full replacement side windows, only insert replacement for bay)

Phong - Homeowner - from 2022

[Website Editor Reply]

Phong, I might have to give the nod to the Simonton 6500 series on this one. The WindowWorks Impreza is better, but that's a really stiff bid. If you do go with Home Depot, just make sure that the installation team they set you up with has a really good reputation and reviews. Insist on their best!

WindowWorks Impreza Cost

Hi Dane, I have 3 quotes for 2, three lite sliders, 1 two lite slider and a 5 light bow. Two from local, well reviewed contractors and one corporate company. Local company is quoting Advanced windows 6300 series. The other local company is quoting Midway/Alliance Hawthorn series. The corporate, WindowWorks is using their Impreza. The Advanced quote feels like the “am I getting what I pay for” range.

Advanced 6300 series: $8440

Midway/Alliance Hawthorn: $11,804

Impreza Series: $13,600


Mike - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mike, I haven't heard of the Advanced 6300 series so I really can't comment on this option. Therefore the Midway Alliance Hawthorne would probably be my pick over the Impreza based on price quote you received. Because I don't deal with these windows all that often, my opinion is fairly watered down on this topic, I apologize.

Window Works Reviews Chicago

Good afternoon Tim and Dane:

I have been looking to your site for window works reviews. So, I was hoping you can help us decide on which would be the best option for the price. We have had several companies come out and here are the quotes we received for full house replacement (26 windows) We will be going with double hung for the most part with exceptions of a large picture in the living room and a ¼ - ½ - ¼ in the family room with the ½ being a picture:

Alside Mezzo - $17,054

Simonton Prism Gold $16,158

Window World 4000 - $12,096

WindowWorks Cost: $19,718

We’ve read and heard the negative reviews of WW and obviously their price was the cheapest. WindowWorks is a local company in Bolingbrook, IL., but they play the “pricing” game with the here is your “buy now” price” ($19,718), “here is your buy by end of month sale price” ($23,386) and here is your “buy by the end of the year price” ($23,278”). They have good reviews on Angie's List for overall customer satisfaction. The Alside and Simonton windows price is from a local company that installs both of their products. They also have positive reviews on Angie's List.

Any advice would be great.

Ronald - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ronald, I would toss the WW 4000 bid as I don't like the series they use and think it's cheap. The only way I'd ever recommend WW is for consumers who know friends who have had the Window World 4000 vinyl windows installed years ago and have had good experiences with the local branch fixing whatever problems arise (which they will).

Moving on, I personally don't like the buy it now price and find it kind of shady, but I know it's used by many local companies. But the bid is the highest of the bunch and I've heard so little about WindowWorks that they can't make THAT great a vinyl series, so I'd toss that one as well.

I happen to think the Alside Mezzo is a decent option, but if it were me I'd go with the Simonton Prism Gold. Not the fanciest window on the market, but of the bids you have, I think it offers the the best price point and value for your money. Assuming the installation is good and thorough, I think this option will serve you well. (More on window replacement cost here.)

Window Works vs Vista

I own home that was built in 1964 and still has original wood windows. Similar houses in this area have sold from 150 to 180K. I would like to replace all of the windows as they are getting old and few of them do not work the way they should. Also tax credit is set to expire by the end of the year.

I got quotes from Anderson Renewal Windows 22K, WindowWorks 9K, Vista 8K. Local contractor who is friend of a friend swears with Advanced Window Corp. Don't have quote for that one yet.

I feel that Anderson is overkill for this area although they have very good product. Basically, I need a recommendation. I might move in the future and keep this house as a rental. As well, I need to find balance between quality and price. Looking to get 14 double hung and 1 picture. So then, any help/advice is appreciated.

Victor - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Victor, Renewal windows are too expensive and overkill in my opinion. If it were me, I would throw this one out and move on. I know very little about WindowWorks, only that they are Chicago based and have a number of reviews on them through the BBB website. In general, they seem to get mostly positive reviews but because I know so little about them I won't offer any sort of opinion on them.

Vista makes a middle-of-the-road vinyl window in the Vista Panorama that isn't bad. I don't know anything about Advanced Windows Co. so I can't comment on those. Of the quotes you have, my vote would be the Vista, although I would upgrade to a good glass package to help out with some of the energy efficiency of the windows.
