CWS Aria Sliders Costs

Hello, we are replacing 12 windows and 2 sliding glass doors in our house in NE Florida. 10 of the windows are in block/stucco and 2 are in a wood frame.

We have a quote using CWS Aria horizontal sliders, MI 3540 single hung windows, and MI 1615 sliding doors for $9571.50. The second quote is for PGT HR5410 sliders and SH5400 single hung windows (not sure which sliding glass doors this quote includes) for $10,921.00.

Any advice on using CWS/MI vs. PGT products would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Jessica - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jessica, I like the second bid a lot more -- PGT makes a good window and sliding door, as does CWS I might add. MI on the other hand has a reputation as a low quality manufacturer and not a brand I would put in my own home.

I would much prefer you spend the extra $1400 and go with the PGT bid. I think it offers better long term value over the first bid.

That doesn't mean that you can't try and shave off some of the cost of the PGT bid though. Use that first bid as leverage to see how low that PGT dealer/company is willing to go for your business.

Here is an article that talks about how to do it.

Meredith, that seems on the high side as far as I'm concerned. I'd get a bid on the following:

Simonton Stormbreaker Plus
PGT 5400 series
CWS Windpact Series

Once you do that, then I think you'll have the information you need to make your decision.

Custom Window Systems vs PGT 5500

Hi Dane,I'm new to the Venice, FL area after moving from NJ. Entire home needs new windows. Quote was for 15 slider windows with prairie grid. PGT 5500 new winguard vinyl series which are triple pane, laminated, and insulated with lowE coating. Windows include 1 larger FR, 6 medium sized ones say 48 x 60”, 2 small Bath, 1 garage, 1 small kitchen into lane and 4 BR windows. Quote was for $14000 and this was for full installation of windows and any additional material needed to complete the job. Thank you.

Joe - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joe, the PGT Winguard vinyl window is quite a good window, however it’s tough to say whether the quote is fair or not. I think you need a couple more quotes to compare it to. I would see if a local company sells CWS, Custom Window Systems, in your area and tell them you want a quote on their most similar window to the triple paned PGT5500 series. Also, see if you can find someone local who sells the Simonton Stormbreaker Plus Series. Those two windows are pretty close in terms of quality and construction to the PGT5500. Get the two bids and see how they compare; sometimes you will get wildly different bids from local companies depending on how busy or not busy their work schedule.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

[Joe's Response]

Thank you so much for getting back to me. We had another local company gives us a price for CW windows equal to PGT and quote came in about the same price as the 14K. We have 2 more companies seeing us this week that will give us quotes. Will ask about the Simonton comp’s windows. We’ll also ask the company (GJC Port Charlotte) that gave us the PGT 14K quote if CW or Simonton is an option that will save us money.

Thanks again Dane and greatly appreciate getting your feedback!

Custom 8000 Windows Cost

I am replacing my windows in St Petersburg, FL (central, coastal Florida). I am planning on going with non-impact windows, and after getting 11 quotes (don't believe anybody who tells you to get only 2 or 3: this does NOT apply to Florida. I am SO GLAD I got all those quotes) I narrowed it down to 2. One is proposing Custom Window Systems 8000 series for about 5.5k for 9 windows, and the other would install softlite Imperial LS for 6.7k. I know that the Softlite are among the best vinyl windows.

How does the CWS compare, and is the softlite worth the extra 20% all other things being equal?

Or is softlite more of a cold climate window?

I am having a hard time finding any solid review on CWS non-impact windows. (I am only looking at non-impact).

Damien - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Damien, 11 quotes, wow, I am impressed you had the fortitude to sit through all of that. You have selected two great companies, just goes to prove what hard work and research get you. Undoubtedly, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS is a great vinyl window, but CWS makes a very good window as well. I don't think Soft-Lite is more of a cold climate window, I just think the factory is located in a cold climate. I do kind of like the idea of getting windows from a factory in the state in which you live, but I'm not sure there is anything really rational in the thought, I think it just gives me a piece of mind for some reason.

$125 more per window for the SL…that's a tough question, I think it's right there on the borderline whether that's worth it or not. It's a coin flip from my perspective, I would need to see more specifics in the quotes to tip it one way of the other.

CWS 8100 Prices

We received a bid for 7 CWS 8100 series and 2 8200 series. Quote is $9,676. The 8200 windows are 5' and 6' wide. All the windows use impact glass with a Low-E 366 tempered glass package. The bid total comes out to $104/sq ft. and includes any remediation that might be required if we have to fix/replace damaged or rotten wood.

Bill - Homeowner - from 2017

CWS 8100 Series Pricing

We are looking to replace 8 single pane Windows with hurricane impact Windows. I have gotten two quotes. Which window is best and why?

Central Window in Vero Beach:
CWS 8100 series white vinyl windows with insulated impact glass, Low-e 366 coatings, argon gas, 5/8" flange frames, 5/8" flat white colonial grids between the glass.

Vero Glass & Mirror:
PGT 5500 series white vinyl insulated impact Windows , clear Low-exl 70 insulated impact glass w/ colonial grids.

The price difference is approximately $593. Thank you so very much!

Dana - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dana, these two impact windows are pretty close in quality, as are CWS and PGT in terms of quality and construction. In general, PGT is a bit more well known than Custom Window Systems, but both CWS and PGT are my top picks for impact windows on the south east coast. If it were me, I would turn to the quality of the installers as the deciding factor. If those are equal, I would probably go with the PGT only because they are a bit bigger operation.

CWS Single Hung Windows Pricing

We have 2 quotes for 14 windows. One is from Home Depot on the Simonton VantagePointe double hung for $8500.

The other is CWS single hung windows for just over $12,000.

Which option do you think is better?

Jeremy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Jeremy, that is a big price difference. I like CWS and think it's the better window, but I'm not sure it's worth 30% more. I think the Simonton VantagePointe window is pretty good, but I would see how much you can get the CWS dealer to come down on his price and see if you can't get it to closer to 10K. Then I think you go with CWS, otherwise the VantagePointe is probably the better value.

Tom - Homeowner - from 2018

[Website Editor Answers]

Tom, that price seems high to me. 11 windows for $12K. I get that the 5500 series is a coastal impact window. Are the CWS impact windows as well? If so, that price isn't too bad, but it doesn't strike me as super competitive, at least at first glance.

If it were me, I'd get a few more bids to see what else is out there.

CWS Storm Impact Windows Quote

I have a quote for15 impact window fromCustom Window Systems using the Solar Max with Neat Technology. Also 4 Energy Storm Saver 2 and 4 panel doors, which are pricey as all heck. Total price quote is $48K.

Sandy - Homeowner - from 2021


I did sign a contract with Window World for the wincore 8000 series impact-resistant double hung windows. 31 windows in all. 8 all those windows are high performance glass package with Solar Zone elite. . Miami-Dade approved. Grids are 8/8 contoured grids. Two very large picture fixed windows and 4 fixed transoms. They will be removing all the old windows and installing all the new ones clean up delivery building permit, all included. The majority of the windows are 32 by 70. Please let me know your thoughts.

I don't think I mentioned, they are the 8000 series storm-force Impact windows. Price for the package was $33,000. Also, Window World gives a limited lifetime warranty. The Window World of Savannah had excellent reviews from every site that I have checked including BBB.

The CWS Impact STORM STRONG from Window World were the same price: $33, 000 for 31 windows. Let me know your thoughts. If you want any further information we did boatloads of research on all the impact Windows.

Linda - Homeowner - from 2020

[Website Editor Answers]

Linda, the pricing sounds good; about what I'd expect to hear for a project of this size. I know that CWS makes a good impact window. I don't know much about the Wincore Storm Force, but they look good from everything I've seen online. They each look like a viable option. I love the fact that the WW has a good reputation, that's great to know. I would ask the people there which window has a better track record and go with their recommendation.

CWS Window Bid

I have a fairly complicated set of windows and installation, 18 windows in all. Got a bid from CWS for $22,640, although after some fancy number crunching it went down to $19,936. The same bid from PGT was $21,345. I got a final bid from AmCraft and that came in at $16,490.

Meredith - Homeowner - from 2018

[Website Editor Answers]

Meredith, I think the CWS and PGT quotes are worth the extra money over the AmCraft. I would see which of their windows you like the look of and then I would use the lower bids to see how low you can get the CWS or PGT dealer to go. Once you've reached this, you'll know it because they won't move any lower, then you sign on the dotted line.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

CWS Costs vs PGT

We had a local company gives us a price for CW windows equal to the PGT quote and the bid came in about the same price as the 14K from CWS. We have 2 more companies seeing us this week that will give us quotes. Will ask about the Simonton comp’s windows. We’ll also ask the company (GJC Port Charlotte) that gave us the PGT 14K quote if CW or Simonton is an option that will save us money.
