Okna Basement Windows Question

I am looking to replace 6 basement windows in my home, which was built in the late 1950’s. The windows were installed with steel frames securing the windows to the foundation. A reputable local contractor has suggested the mid-range Okna 500 series vinyl hopper windows.

These seem to be well constructed windows, better than most others that I have seen. The cost of the windows, including installation is a bit over $800 per window. The contractor claims it will take about a half day to remove the old and install the new. Is this a fair cost to pay?

Thank you for your time.

Glenn, the “mid range” Okna 500 is an excellent window – a top tier vinyl window to be sure. The price your contractor quoted sounds quite fair to me given the amount of work entailed.

However, I would get a couple more quotes to confirm this. It might help you sleep better knowing you did your due diligence. If local window companies give you a much better quote, you can then ask why he’s charging more than them for the labor portion for the windows.

Up to you of course, but I tend to think contractors may act like you’re being a pain in the arse, but they respect you more and tend to price out other portions of the remodel lower knowing that you might go out and have independent providers/suppliers confirming the bid.

Basement Windows In New York

Looking into replacing the basement windows of my home. All the companies I was looking into such as Silverline, Certainteed, American Jewel, American Craftsman you have poor ratings on. I am so confused. I received a quote on a North East Window by Reliable Remodelers can you tell me if they are good. Thank you

Estie, unfortunately, I do not have any personal knowledge of the work, quality or windows used by North East Window by Reliable Remodelers. I did look them up and saw that they were in upstate New York so I'm assuming that's where you live. Both Soft-Lite and Okna windows should be available in your area and are considered amongst the best in terms of vinyl windows. I would do a quick search and find out if you can find out who carries these brands and have them give you a bid for your basement windows. Make sure to check that the actual company gets good reviews online. Good luck!
