Okna Window Prices

Okna window prices are in the mid to high end of the vinyl window cost spectrum. Okna makes several window lines, including the 400, 500, 800, 1800, and Starmark composite. All of their window models are considered well made, although the 500 and 800 Series are the standouts of the bunch. Consumers can select from one of two "package options", the Energy Option, which includes low-e glass and argon fills, or the Deluxe Option, includes the features in the Energy Option, as well as foam filled frame and a locking screen.

Okna 400 Windows Prices

The Okna 400 window is one of the best low priced models on the market. With the Deluxe package, you get a U-value of 0.28, AI of 0.05, and SHGC of 0.30. You can see advertised deals of around $400 but to get the best install, expect to pay around $450, which is still a good price. It lacks some of the fancier options and upgrades of more expensive windows, but it is an excellent budget window. The 400 Series is comparable to the Polaris Thermalweld window.

Okna 400 Windows Costs

Hi I decided on okna but I can’t seem to get an answer on what series’s window has the most glass view. I’m torn between the 500 series or the upgrade Star Mark (wood look frames) I’m not sure of the number but I know it’s not the 600 or 800. (Again getting mixed answers from contractor) it’s for 10 double hung and 2 casement and a slider. 500 was quoted 10,800 and if I upgrade the windows i was quoted 14,050 (keeping the slider a 500 series. Could you please tell me what series has the most window area! Hope I’m making sense! Thank you. I’m in NJ if that helps figure out if the prices are reasonable.

- Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sharon, I believe the Okna 400 is a slightly thinner extrusion than the 500 and 800 models. You will get a bit more glass area at the expense of some energy efficiency. The 400 is a decent vinyl window, while the 500 is an excellent vinyl window. Finding the 400 series can be a tricky prospect as most dealers sell the 500, 600, 700, and 800 series. I personally think the 500 is the way to go from a long term value perspective. The 800 is a really great window, but not necessary to upgrade to with the 500 as such a solid performer. If you are in NJ, you might want to take a look at Ideal Windows. Their Platinum 3000 and Majestic series are on par with the Okna options and often at a lower price point.

Okna 400 Window Price Quotes

I needed to replace 18 double hung windows around the house. Have arrived at a deal for OKNA 400 - 14 windows standard double pane with grids only on top glass and 4 triple pane with foam for Master bedroom for less outside noise . Paying $430 on 14 , and $530 for triple pane 4 , a total of $7900 / installed . The installer is a local pro , OkNa dealer called window Depo . Your comments please on qualitative issues and price competitiveness. Would wait for your comments to seal the deal . Thanks

- Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi, that's a very fair price on the Okna 400 window. $430 is about what I'd expect to pay for a pretty generic window, so the 400 model is a solid step above that. I love the idea that your Window Depot has a solid reputation! Sounds like you have found a quality window at a fair price from a well reputed dealer. Good on you.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2021

Okna 400 Window Bids

Hi Dane, I'm looking to install 20 windows: 11 double hungs, 3 twin double hungs, and an XOX. They all come with full colonial grids.

Thank you.

Bobby - Homeowner - from 2020


Okna 400 Price Quote

HI Tim, got quotes of Okna 400 (dealer said they are the replacement window model) for above $7300 for 14 windows.

Joyce Windows top of the line replacements, for around $8650 but it includes some sill work the above doesn’t and 16 windows.

Wondering of I should also get a quote on SoftLites, or just stick with these two quotes? Any thoughts on the Okna or Joyce quotes?

Jim - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Tim, Okna is considered one of the best vinyl manufacturers out there. Joyce windows are not considered in the same league. $500 per window for the Okna is a very competitive price on a good vinyl window. You could certainly get the Soft-Lite quote, but the Okna quote looks like the clear winner to me.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 400 Price Bid

Dane – I have received 5 quotes on replacing 15 windows; Okna 500 Deluxe $12,500, Okna Deluxe 400 $11,500, Softlite Nirvana $8,325, Ideal Platinum $6,885 and Alside Mezzo $6,720. I live in PA. I am between the Okna and Softlite. Based on the price/quality/installer I am leaning towards the Softlite. What is your opinion? Thank you.

Nancy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nancy, I agree with you completely, the Soft-Lite Classic or Nirvana is probably the best value of the bunch. Quite a good window. Assuming you feel comfortable with the installer, then i think you have your winner.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 400 Window Bid

Received a quote on the Okna 400 model for 11 slider windows (3 are quite wide), a patio door, and a bow window. All the windows are triple pane and include the foam fills. My house is brick and metal frame. Bid price is $11.2K

Ming - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ming, sounds like a pretty solid bid to me, especially with that bow window in there. The Okna 400 is a good vinyl window.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 400 and 500 Window Bids

Hello - are there any window suggestions in the vinyl mid frame that I can buy or have a window installer buy? Like Okna is great but they only have certain installers who put high pressure to buy ALL or they don't like to even come out. I live in the Hudson Valley NY and you're list is not suggesting the brands at the big box stores. His email says those United Windows that I was telling you about. They're lower line comes in around $200 per window and they're higher line is about 275-300. Is there any suggested window brand that we can order ourselves w.out having to be an auth dealer/installer?

Scott - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, most quality windows are sold through authorized dealers/companies -- that's just the way it is. Certain contractors have access to a number of different brands, but finding the ones who sell quality windows in your area wouldn't be something that I could help you with. The big box stores sell a few decent windows, but again it's regional, so I can't tell you what they carry. I know out west some of them carry the Andersen 100 window, which I consider a good window. Reliabilt gets decent reviews, but I also hear a lot of complaints about problems that crop up.

The only way to buy windows yourselves is through the home improvement stores -- here's what I would do -- go to the big box stores and ask them which vinyl window they would put in their house -- Simonton, Andersen 100 (not Silverline), or even the wood-clad Jeld Wen (I'm not a big fan of their vinyl windows). Then find a local installer using Angles List, craigslist, etc. that has lots of high quality reviews and call them up and ask them to come out and give you a bid.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

[Scott's Answer]

Ok. How do you think these quotes are?

Putnam is trying to steer me to 400.

$630.00 to upgrade to 500 but he SWEARS it's the "same" window

Just exteriors cant even get the 500 and they are pushing the 800 and suggested stearing clear of the 400.

Window king says don't touch the 400 and is suggesting the 500 except of the large slider in the kitchen they are suggesting the 800.

Any thoughts pop out at your when reviewing the three quotes?

Scott - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, I took a look at your three proposals and I have to say that the Window King looked like the clear winner to me. (I know nothing of the company, their reputation or their quality so that's my caveat here.) Basically, they are charging you $7000 total for 12 Okna 500 double DX double hungs, 1 400 series, and 1 800 series -- all with the DX energy package. That's a smoking deal if you ask me. The other proposals were much higher. Assuming you like their company and they have a good reputation, I don't see how you can turn this one down.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna Exterior Frame Upgrade Cost

I got an Okna window bid for 33 windows and they want to charge me $5,000 for a custom color. Does this make sense?

Steve - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Custom exterior frame colors can run quite a bit, unfortunately. $150 per window for the upgrade sounds about right — it just sounds bad when it tacks on $5K to the project!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 400 Prices vs Sunrise Window Costs

I'm replacing a bathroom window, 20" by 44" with tempered glass and argon fills. The bids I've gotten are:

Okna 400 DX Series: $600

Sunrise Series: $620

Sunrise Vanguard: $665

Silverline 9500: $485

Silverline 8600: $445

United 4800: $307

Corey - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Corey, the Sunrise Vanguard and Okna 400 bids look like the best to me.. The Vanguard is one of Sunrises best window, while the Okna 400 is that company's entry level. I would certainly pay the extra $65 per window for the Vanguard over the 400.

Okna 500 Insul-Tec Windows Prices

The Okna 500 series, or Insul-Tec model, is their mid range replacement window, although it is closer to a top tier window than most company's premium windows. The vinyl window offers some better features, such as an improved sill wall and better spacer, than their lower end 400 model.

Performance wise, the Insul-Tec offers a U-value of 0.25, AI of 0.02, SHGC of 0.28, and DP50. All in all, very good numbers. The 500 Series is comparable to the Sunrise Vanguard.

Tim - Site Editor


Okna 500 Cost Bid

Thanks for responding back so quickly. The Okna 500 bid of $9660 is for 13 double hung and 1 picture window. I don't know how that should break down but just dividing equally it comes out to $690 per window. That was why I thought $600 per hopper window (appx 18 x 30) seemed high.

Alice - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Alice, it sounds like a fair price bid given todays prices.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2021


OKNA 500 Cost vs Sunrise Vanguard

I have eight same size windows 38x48, two bathrooms ones 25x35 and two 25/50/25 picture windows 109x48 an 121x49. All double hung windows. There is some work involved in removing the old window with a replacement window. I have three options

OKNA 500 ... $15000 - $17500

Wincore 7700 -- $16500

Sunrise Vanguard ... $20000

Norandax 3000 ... $14500

The quotes vary for OKNA between choosing a small business contractor or a company.

I would appreciate your advise. Greatly appreciated.

Ahmad - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ahmad, The Okna bid is the best of the bunch. The Okna 500 is an excellent vinyl window, on par with the Sunrise Vanguard and obviously much less expensive. The Okna offers much better value over the Wincore and Norandex options.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020


Okna 500DX Double Hung Replacement Windows

Tim, recently, I was quoted $15498 (w/cash discount) for 25 Okna 500DX Double Hung Replacement Windows. I was wondering if this was a good window and a fair price? I live in central Virginia. Thanks.

Joe - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joe, that's quite a fair price for the Okna 500DX Double Hung. Just about what I'd expect. Excellent window, so good on you!

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020


Okna 500 Price Quote

Dane and Tim: I am replacing 25 year old vinyl windows the builder installed. I think they are WeatherShield out of the mid-West somewhere, at least that's what the builder told us.

Nothing wrong with most of them, no fogging or water leakage, just that a few don't close properly and - they are 25 years old. Given their age and the amount of use they get (we are year-round fresh air people), I'm very satisfied with the value we received, but it's time.

I am replacing 34 large double-hung windows and two patio sliders, two transoms and two 1/2-rounds. Five of the double-hungs require tempered glass in the lower sash (bathroom). All double-hungs will receive full screens. All will have the "heat shield" glass package or equivalent.

I am trying to decide between Okna 500 and Pro Via Endure windows for my suburban Baltimore home. The Okna replacement sliders would be 800s.

Do you have an opinion regarding the choice? The prices are within $1000 of each other coming in at ~$26K and if push comes to shove I know I can get them to an equal price. Both installers have done work for me and neighbors before (not windows) and have always done good work.

Looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully breaking this tie.

Rob - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rob, I do have an opinion. Although both windows are excellent, the Okna is the better option. ProVia makes a better door than Okna because this is where they got their start. Okna makes the better windows because this is where they got their start.

Okna still makes a very good door, but they definitely make the better window as they've had decades longer to perfect the process. Really good price quote from them as well. I'm seeing some pretty high quotes with COVID and the homeowner demand for home improvement projects.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020

[Rob's Reply]

Dane, thank you. I was leaning towards the Okna windows and you helped push me over the edge. Very happy to hear that the price quote is a good one as well. Both installers are very trustworthy and out to gain and keep customers through repeat business. I was not surprised to hear that they each provided fair quotes, and happy to have that confirmed.

Rob - Homeowner - from 2020


Okna Insul-tec Deluxe Cost Bid

Hi Tim, thank you in advance for taking the time to look over my estimates. I live in the Buffalo, NY area. We are looking to replace original casement windows with 9 double hungs and 2, maybe 3 awning windows. We have called seven window companies for estimates and thanks to your site I have a better understanding of what to look for in windows. My research on companies has come up with the below list of estimates. I was looking to see what your thoughts are on them. Thank you again.

Here are the estimates:

1. Comfort Windows
Upstate NY company that manufacturer's their own windows
9 dbl hungs, 3 awnings
-Triple pane- $11,687
-Double pane- $10,662

2. Tomson Windows
-Soft-lite Pro Series
9 DH and 2 awnings
-Double pane- $7645
Doesn't recommend triple pane due to weight for the size of some of the double hung windows.

3. Big L windows and doors
- Sunrise Restorations w/ glass pkg N2100A
9 Dbl hung, 5 full replacement and 4 inserts.
1 awning- insert
Double pane- $11,625

4. Wonder Windows
- Okna Insul-tec Deluxe double pane
9 DH and 2 awning
$8788
- Okna Enviro-Star
+ $1500-2000= $10300-$10800
(Said he wouldn't recommend bc will not make up the difference in cost over the life of the windows)

5. Springville Doors and Windows
- Sunrise Platinum
- Omega 12 HP glass pkg w/ interior Thermal IU Plus
9 DH and 2 awning
$11,547-double pane
Are the Platinum window series the same/similar to the Restoration windows?

6. Window Factory Outlet
-Platinum Pro200 (DH) and Platinum pro8100(awning)
9 DH and 2 Awning
$8100
Salesman said they use Owens Corning Air Seal Technology on their windows.

7. Braymiller Builders
- Soft-lite Elements or Bainbridge Luxury Edition
8 DH and 3 awnings double panes
-Elements--> $15312
-Bainbridge LE--> $10835

From what I have been reading on your site and others I think my top 3 would be estimates 4, 2, and 5. We don't plan on moving for a long time, so I would like a good quality window. I am looking to see what your thoughts are. Looked up reviews for installation quality. I take them with a grain of salt. They all had pluses and minuses, none really stood out as I definitely should hire this company. Thank you again.

Enzo - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Enzo, I think you are completely correct in your thinking on the particular bids. Since you are staying in your home long term, I would say the Okna Insul-tec Deluxe double pane bid is the top, followed by the Soft-lite Pro Series. These would be the bids I would work first. If one or both falls out for some reason, then I would probably consider the Sunrise bid. Great window selection though! All of these three options are excellent!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020


Okna 500 DX Windows Cost

Hi Tim, Thanks so much, I have gotten additional estimates so here is what I have.

Window depot-Alside Mezzo at $5900

Skyline windows-Okna 500dx at $7100

Champion-$12,000,discounts included.

Obviously, Champion is out

I appreciate your input. This website has been so informative in this process.

Thanks again.

Renita - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Renita, I think the Okna 500 deal is better than the Alside Mezzo, assuming you are staying in your place long term. If you are moving in say 8 years or less, than the Alside deal is the better move.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020


Okna 500DX Windows Bid

I have four good bids (I think). Was wondering what you thought of them.
Okna 500DX Series: $13,288
Soft-Lite Pro Series: $13,400

Universal Plus Windows: $12,750
Soft-Lite Imperial LS Series: $14,400

Andy - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

This would be how I would rate them: the Okna 500DX bid, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS, the Soft-Lite Pro, and then the Universal Plus.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2020


Okan 500 Dealer Price Quote

Hi Dan, I had another guy come in today who is the only Okna dealer in atlanta and quoted for 493$ per window for the 500 series. it was 40$ more per window than great lakes but from your opinions on your website I decided to pay the extra and get Okna. Your website really helped to make a informed decision and wanted to thank you for that.

fyi. i am also replacing the patio door and for Okna its 1700$

Sned - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sned, those are amazing prices for the Okna windows and doors. This is what I'd go with, no questions asked! Well actually I'd ask enough questions to makesure he was a good installer, but assuming that, the Okna is the way to go.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna 500DX Deluxe By HiMark

Hello Dane, I’m looking at having 12 sliding windows replaced in my house. The company I’m thinking about going with carries the Okna brand. The following is what they quoted:

ACTIVITY AMOUNT $12,888.00

500DX windows

Furnish and Install (12)new 500DX (deluxe) HiMark by Okna Vinyl Window(s) include standard Double Pane glass, 11 layer Climaguard LowE coating, 90%+ Argon Gas, Foam Filled Frame and sash, triple weatherstripping at every surface, .070 outer wall extrusion thickness, HeatSeal non metallic warm-edge glass spacer system.

Welded, sloped sill. Fully Welded Frame and Sash.(Locking Half Screen with ThruVision mesh) (specs apply to double hung units). Window installed with closed cell, low expansion foam around perimeter to prevent against air and water infiltration. Caulk where too tight for foam.

Product ratings: (ratings per manufacturer, may vary by size and options)
U-Value .25
SHGC .29
Air Infiltration 0.02
DP: R50
CR: 62

From what I’ve read from your web site the price seems to be very high. What are your thoughts?

Best Regards.

Matthew - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Matthew, that's definitely a high price for 12 sliders. Part of it is the time of year, part of it is the economy, part of it is that HiMark dealer charge more, and part of it is probably the dealer is simply busy and can charge more. Get some more bids and see what else is out there. There should be lots of variation in price the more bids you get. When you get a few more, send them back to me and I'll give you my two cents. For the time being, that Okna/HiMArk bid is certainly high.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna 500 Window Costs

Another company broke out the 5 Okna 500 windows to $3744 including installation. So that is $749 a window for installation. Is this fair?

- Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

So $750 a window for the Okna 500 is at the very top of the "fair" scale. It is interesting that you received quotes from two different Okna dealers and the pricing was so different. Goes to prove that you need to get multiple bids.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna Insultec 500 Price Cost

H, I have two estimates for 28 double hungs, 3 fixed frame windows and a 8 foot sliding patio door. Which do you like?

Okna Insultec 500 Series: $21K
Ideal Majestic Series: $18.2K

Laura - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Laura, each of these bids is very solid. I like both of them. The Ideal Majestic series fro $18,000 for 31 windows and a sliding door is very solid, probably the one I would go with. The installation company is going to be a big factor here for me.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna 500dx Price vs. Zen Nirvana

Hello Dane & Tim, I’d like to start by thanking you for your great website. Doing research and trying to compare windows amongst the sea of companies is really daunting. One window guy told me that there are 3400 manufacturers of windows! I wasn’t aware of some of the best choices until finding your site. So, that being said, I’d appreciate your thoughts on some choices.
First, the project: we’re putting an addition on our home and doing some remodeling. The remodeling portion will include residing the entire house and replacing nearly all of the windows. Since the siding is being replaced, we have the opportunity to install frame-type windows vs. replacement flange-type. We live in the metro Milwaukee, Wisconsin area (zip 5308).
Windows:
2 - 65 x 55 Picture Window OPTIONAL: 1 additional
12 -29.5 x 55 Double Hung (8 in sets - mullions needed)
4 - 24 x 36 Double Hung (in sets - mullions needed) OPTIONAL 1 additional w/tempered glass
8 - 30 x 48 Double Hung (in sets - mullions needed)
9 - 30 x 30 Awning (2 in sets - 4 mullions needed)
1 - 24 x 24 Awning - tempered glass
1 - 36 x 24 Awning QUOTES: We started with building supply companies:

Crestline $12,100

Alliance Hawthorne $14,000

Then, a window distributor
Lindsay Earthwise $15,400
Lindsay Pinnacle $22,000

Finally, thanks to your site, we looked at some others
Okna 500dx $27,442
Zen Nirvana $25,934

Both of these include installation. With our carpenter removing & installing new siding, we also told the window folks that we will do all the interior & exterior finish trim. I assume that’s factored into the cost.

Polaris Ultraweld $27,986 windows only

Polaris Ultraweld $38,972 windows & full installation

We also contacted a SoftLite distributor, asking about the Imperial LS. I’m waiting to hear back from them.

Please let me know your thoughts on this. We have our building permit and work will start in 1-2 weeks. There is work on the installation and then building the addition which won’t involve windows and/or siding for a month or so, but I do need to get the windows ordered due to 3-4 week lead time.

Sincere thanks for your help.

Edward - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Edward, of the seven bids you have received so far, the best value looks like the Okna 500 dx to me. If the Zen Nirvana is the Soft-lite Classic model, then it's a close second. Lately, some of the Zen branches have moved to the Alside prodiuct, in which case I'd toss the bid completely. I'd say the Okna is worth the extra money. The Lindsay Pinnacle is probably third, but a distant third.

The Crestline and Alliance aren't quality products in my opinion and the Ultraweld is more or less equivalent to the Okna 500 DX so no sense in spending the extra $11K. Overall, the Okna is not a bad price for the windows, installation and finish work. The Soft-Lite Imperial LS is a great product, but I'm assuming it's going to run more than the Okna. If it's within $1K of the Okna, it would jump into first place.

The company doing the install would certainly be an important factor in all of this.

Okna 500 series Deluxe Pricing

I am a first time homeowner and am looking to replace 5 double hung windows and 1 patio door. I came across your site and would like to thank you in advance for your helpful information.

I received a quote for 5 Okna 500 series Deluxe DH windows and 1 HGI steel patio hinged door for $4424. This is for all products and installation. Is this a fair price?

Phil - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Phil, this is a pretty fair price by the sound of it. I have no idea what the patio door is running you, but lets say its $1800, which is a ballpark price for a standard patio door with installation. That leaves $2624 for the 5 windows, which comes to $525 per window. Actually that's a smoking price for the Okna 500 series Deluxe DH. Again, it depends on the door/window price breakdown, but it sounds like excellent pricing to me.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna Insul Tec 500 Windows Pricing

Hi Dane. I have a quote for 15 double hung Insul Tec 500 windows in different size. Window pricing (without installation) is $465 per window. They want $205 extra for installation and exterior trim capping for each window. I will go back and drill down on the installation costs, but what do you think? This contractor is the only dealer in the area for Okna and they appear to be very good. They have also quoted $1200 more or $80 per window for the Okna ES 800. That would be $750 all in. What do you think on my pricing? I’m getting two other quotes this week but will be for other brands unfortunately. Thanks very much. Dave

Dave - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dave, Okna is a good brand and that is a reasonable price for the 500 and 800 with installation and exterior capping. I would definitely get the other bids to compare to the Okna and see how they fare. There are lots of good brands out there (and lots of very mediocre ones as well). If one of the bids is lower, you can also use that to go back to the Okna dealer and see if they can come down off that price a bit. It doesn't always work, but it can't hurt to ask.

Send me the bids when you get them, and I can weigh in. The Okna bid looks solid, now we just have to see if we can't find their floor price. And who knows, maybe the other bids will be good as well.

Hello Dane. Just a quick follow up. My second quote is in. The installer uses Sunrise and I like the Restoration model.The quote for the Sunrise is a little less than the Okna 800 so price is not a primary issue. Both installers are great. Both windows are about identical in performance. Am I overlooking a selection criterion to pick one over the other? I would offer that I like the Sunrise estimator, who was also the owner because of his personal hands on approach to do whatever is needed to make me happy after the sale. That was a nice touch besides a great warranties for both. So I would love to hear your thoughts on the two windows. So happy that I found your website! Best, Dave

Dave - Homeowner - from 2019 Dave, the Sunrise Restorations and Okna 800 are both excellent windows, two of the very best on the market. I would go with the company you feel most comfortable with, which sounds like the Sunrise option. Honestly, you can't go wrong with either window, so make the company doing the install the tie breaker. reply


Okna 500 Deluxe Cost vs. Wincore 7700

We have gotten quotes for 32 replacement windows (including 10 large size double hung, 2 large picture windows, 2 casement windows). Okna 500 deluxe $2500 higher than Wincore 7700 series. What're your thoughts on these two options at that price difference?

Thank you!

Rachel - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rachel, the Okna 500 deluxe is well worth the extra $2500 cost over the Wincore 7700. That is assuming you are staying in your home for 10 or more years. If you plan to leave before then, I might consider saving the $2500 and go with the Wincore option. Long term, however, the Okna 500 deluxe window is one of the best options out there!

OKNA Insul-Tec Deluxe Price Bid

Hello! I live in Richmond, VA, and I have gotten bids from 3 companies for replacing 20 windows with double-hung vinyl (Both VinylMax bids are from the same company). Based on what I’m reading on your website, I’m inclined to think the OKNA windows might be the best value for the money, but I’m really not sure. How do you think these prices compare?

OKNA Insul-Tec Deluxe: $11,715

Norandex Perfexion: $9,413

VinylMax Edison: $16,960

VinylMax Newton: $18,960

I swear, this is similar to mattress shopping … nobody has the same thing, prices are all over the place, and it seems impossible to really compare apples to apples. I just don’t want to make a thousands-of-dollars mistake.

I love your website! So helpful!!

Thanks so much!

Becky - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Becky, you are completely right that the best deal by far is the Okna bid. The Norandex Perfexion window is a very middle of the road vinyl window, while the OKNA Insul-Tec Deluxe is an excellent window. The Vinylmax Edison and Newton are very good as well, but I would put the OKNA Insul-Tec Deluxe on par with either. At $585 per window, that's a very competitive price you received. The Vinylmax bids are too expensive.

You are completely right -- prices are completely all over the place. Dealers throw out crazy bids all the time, just waiting to see if unsuspecting consumers will bite. It is one of the downsides of a free market economy, business are free to charge whatever the heck they want. On the flip side, you got your bids and now you are getting a great window at a very good price! Best of luck to you on your upcoming window replacement project.

OKNA Insul-Tec Windows Prices

We're a Maryland based family and we replaced 27 windows with the OKNA Insul-Tec windows, 27 in all, back a few years ago. The cost was $18,430. We have had some issues with the unfortunately, including some window pane cracking and several areas fogging up on the inside. I'm not the biggest fan right now.

Jess - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jess, Okna makes a good windows, but they have their share of issues like anyone. I would contact the local rep and see if they will address those warranty issues for you. They certainly should.

Okna 500 Window Costs

I have two bids, one from a HiMark window dealer and the other from a Soft-lite Imperial LS dealer. There are 25 windows and 1 patio door to be replaced.

OKNA 500: $24,100

Soft Lite Imperial LS: $21,400

Lee - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lee, both of those bids are for very good products. I would say they are on par with one another. Therefore, I'd go with the Soft Lite Imperial LS and save yourself $3K.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019


OKNA Window Replacement Costs

OKNA or Soft-Lite Window Replacement Costs. Thanks Dane for the quick response. What is a fair price per window double hung installed? What other brands would you consider that are equivalent?

Kyle - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Those windows might run $650 to $750 installed but there are so many factors that would drive the price up or down that it's hard to say what is a fair price.

Other equivalent windows might include the Sunrise Restorations, the Ideal Majestic and the Kensington Quantum.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna 500 vs. Harvey Classic

I'm debating between the Harvey Classic and the Okna 500 series.I have 16 windows total, all sliders, but two are XOX.

Harvey Classic Bid: $11,275

Both include a 20 year installation and labor warranty

Matt - Homeowner - from 2018

Matt, the Okna 500 is where'd I'd go first.

Okna 500 Insultec Price Bid

We have a rather large home remodel that requires us to replace all 63 windows. The bids include all the removal, plus work on some of the frames that have water damage, the installation and clean up.

Zen Lotus Series: $61,575

Okna 500 Insultec Series: $59,250

Sunrise Standard Series: $46,900

Dave - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dave, I like all of these price bids. They seem fair given the scope of the project itself. I'd go with Sunrise since I think its close in quality to the Okna and Zen products.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 500 DX vs. Ideal Platinum 3000

We're replacing 12 double hung windows, plus 2 more awning windows and live in Northern Virginia. Would love to hear what you think of the following bids.

Okna 500 DX
U-value: 0.25
Glass: Deluxe Package
Quote: $9,725

Ideal Platinum 3000 Series
U-value: 0.22
Glass: ESM+ Package
Quote: $5,040

Ideal Majestic Series
U-value: 0.27
Glass: Energy Green Package
Quote: $7,320

Bob - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bob, I'm a big fan of Okna windows, but here they aren't worth the difference in price. Ideal makes a very good window in both the Majestic and Platinum. If the Majestic was close in price I'd go with that, but I think the best value for your money is in the Platinum 300 series.

Okna 500 Deluxe Windows Bid

Quoted 5200 for 7 Okna 500 deluxe windows windows installed. Is this a good deal?

- Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Not particularly, but it totally depends on the project. You need a couple more bids to see if the price bid is right on based on the project specs or if it's inflated. The bids can also be used by you to find the floor price of the Okna bid if you want to go in this direction. Bring a lower bid back to the Okna rep and ask him to match the price etc. Here's an article that offers more detail.

https://www.replacementwindowsreviews.co/review-topics/negotiating-a-home-window-bid.html

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna Basement Windows

We have a project that requires 6 hooper windows, all of which are encased in steel. This definitely complicates the process.

America’s Windows (Okna 500): $4500

Improveit (their own premium window): $7500

Local Rep (Alside Mezzo): $4200

Brianna - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brianna, I'd suggest going with the Okna 500. It's a much better window than the Alside Mezzo. The ImproveIt I've never heard of so I wouldn't spend $3K more on something that would be hard pressed to best an Okna product.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna Windows And ProVia Doors Quote

We have four storm slider doors and 22 windows, all of which must be replaced. We've gotten two bids

Kellan - Homeowner - from 2018


Okna 500 Deluxe Quote

I have 18 windows, all of which are old and leaking. I received a bid from a window person who sells the Okna 500 window. His bid ws $11,090 and seems to include every part of the job.

The installation came out to $3,150 and on average $50 in materials cost for contour and other installation materials per window. I have attached the breakdown, if I could trouble you to quickly glance over it, that would be great. If not it’s totally fine.

Chase - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chase, solid price and very solid window, one of the best out there! The installation cost per window is $175, which sounds fair. The per window price looks good, and they are charging you $54 for the grids on each window. All of that looks very fair to me.

You could still go out and get more bids and go back and negotiate on the price, but the bid as it stands right now does look like a standard price bid for Okna. Again, excellent window.

Let me know how it works out and good luck!

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 500 Price Quote

I am gathering bids for my home which need 19 replacement windows. I've gotten four so far, but two didn't make the cut, so this is what I'm left with.

Okna 500 Windows Cost Bid

I have bids from Okna and Soft-Lite but interestingly the Soft-Lite dealer is pushing an Ideal. The Softlite dealer I went to see is pushing me to an Ideal Majestic window that he says has a .02 air infiltration. Personally, I like the look of the Okna over the Ideal. The prices between the two windows is close with the Okna $1000 more than the Ideal for 14 windows.

Tim - Homeowner - from 2018


Okna 500DX Price Quote

I got a quote on 22 Okna 500 DX windows and a single patio door for $17,000.

At the same time, I got a quote for the same project from a Soft-Lite dealer using the Elements window for $18,500.

Decided to go with the Okna bid based on the price difference and the fact that $17,000 is right at the top of my budget for this whole thing. I feel good about it.

Karen - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Karen, the Okna 500 DX is a great window and I agree that $17,000 is nothing to sneeze at. Good luck on your remodel!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna Insul-tec Window Bid

I have a price quote on a Okna Insul-tec 500 from one of the local dealers in town. The cost is $16,900, which I tried to get him to lower but he said that as low as he was willing to go. It's for 28 windows, a handful with the Sunseal Glass. It includes labor, wood trim replacement, and exterior wrapping with aluminum coil.

Marpan - Homeowner - from 2018


Okna 500 Deluxe vs. Softlite Imperial LS

Tim, we have a couple quotes from some very highly regarded local companies and I was hoping to get your take on the bids we have. This is for 30 replacement windows. Okna 500 Deluxe: $22K Softlite Imperial LS $19.5

Nat - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nat, the Imperial LS and 500 DX are two of the best windows available. I like the Imperial LS as much as the 500 so go with the least expensive bid. This is assuming that the installation quality is the same. I'd do some checking for online reviews to make sure the Soft-Lite dealer is good, but it sounds like this is the case already.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 500 vs. ProVia

Hi Tim, I need seven windows replaced and want something that will last and be energy efficient as a triple pane. My sister has Mastic windows from 1993 and they still work great. I have bids from Provia, Okna, Simonton, and Alside. The bids ranged from $5800 to $6200. Which of these would you recommend.

Michael - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michael, Okna is the best window from the list you've provided. I wish you had mentioned the actual models, but you did on the Okna and if the Okna is within $400 of the others, then this is what I'd go with. You may want to see if the dealer will come down at all on price. $6200 for 7 windows is pretty high, although since the price were all so similar, I'm guessing there is some installation work required.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 500 InsulTec and Simonton Relections 5500

I have two bids from well regarded window contractors. We have 9 windows to be replaced.

Simonton Reflections 5500: $4595

Okna 500 Deluxe: $4700

Susie - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Susie, the Okna 500 is the better window and the Deluxe is excellent. Very fair price.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 500 Basement Windows

I am replacing six basement windows and have a bid from an Okna dealer who suggested the 500 hopper style window. The bid came out to roughly $800 per window. Does this sound high to you?

Glen - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Glen, the Okna 500 is excellent. $800 per window on the face of it is high, but basement windows tend to involve more installation work than other projects. If you are in doubt, get a couple more quotes and it will tell you whether the bid is high or not.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna 500 vs. Soft-lite Imperial LS

We are comparing the Vytex Grandview, Okna 500, and the Soft-lite Imperial LS. We have to replace all 16 of our windows.

Vytex Grandview (from Window Nation): $470 each

Okna 500 DS (from ClearView): $523 each

Soft-lite Imperial LS (from Window Nation): $531 each

Jim - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jim, your Okna bid and Soft-Lite are both very strong. Excellent pricing and both very well regarded brands and window models. For me it would come down to which of the dealers you think will provide better installation, service and support.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna 500 Costs vs Alside Mezzo

I have 13 windows around the house that I want to update. I took your advise and collected 4 bids, only 3 of which I will consider. I'd love to get your opinion on the bids I have. Thanks. Okna 500 Deluxe: $8450 Alside Mezzo Window: $6700 Anderson 400 Window: $13400

Brenda - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

The Andersen 400 is simply too expensive to consider, unless you have to have a wood window. Personally, I think they are over rated myself. I'm not a huge fan of the Mezzo frame, I think it is less than sturdy. I am a big fan of the Okna 500 Deluxe. I would negotiate you bid and see if you can't get the dealer to come down off that initial price.

Okna 500 Prices vs. Champion 8200 Series

We live on a ranch style home in SE Wisconsin an need to replace 15 windows, a patio sliding door and 2 hopper windows. I find the name hopper to be a very odd name for a window. but i digress.

Champion 8200 Windows: $20.9K (U-factor: 0.27, SHGC: 0.19 VT: 0.44 and AI - 0.10)

Okna 500 Deluxe: $18.9K (U-factor: 0.20, SHGC: 0.24, VT: 0.38, AI - 0.02)

Andrew - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andrew, both Champion and Okna make very good windows. I would place Okna above Champion by a bit. Check out the AI numbers, the Champion data is decent, while the .02 AI for Okna is awesome. The fact that the Okna is less expensive means this is really not even a question for me -- the Okna all the way.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna 505 Series vs NT Presidential Windows Prices

We have 50 windows to replace, which is a lot! Our current windows are so old and totally failing. We had gotten a bid from a person who sells NT Presidential windows, but then last minute got another bid from an Okna 500 dealer. The Okna windows were $5000 more, which is not that much more per window if they are really worth it. Are they?

Kath - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kath, I'm assuming you plan to stay in this house for quite a while otherwise you wouldn't be replacing your 50 windows. Gosh, how big is your house!!!! The NT Presidential series is a very solid mid range window. If it were my house, I would pay $100 more per window to get a truly great window in the Okna 500 model. This is what I'd do.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

[Kathy's Answer]

Thank you Tim for your response. I have an additional question in regards to foam filled frames on both the Okna and NT windows. When the Okna rep came out he showed us that the frame was foam filled in multiple chambers around the window frame and sash. The NT it looks like the foam is an upgrade option. Due to the size of the windows we would like the extra rigidity of the foam frame. Are we correct in our thinking and do you know whether the Okna and NT are indeed foam filled as standard or optional? Thanks again.

Kathy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kathy, typically (but these things can vary by rep) Okna offers an Energy or Deluxe package wit the Energy being their standard and Deluxe being their upgrade. The Deluxe includes the foam fills in the frame and a better locking mechanism. I think the foam frames are worth the extra cost for the rigidity and improved energy efficiency.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna 500 Bid vs Andersen 400

Dane, I've been lurking about your site for several years. A Delaware company gave us a quote on 16 Okna 500 deluxe double hungs and 1 awning window. There's quite a bit of work involved; removing siding, new construction installation and replacing siding. If I pay cash their price is $11,842, but if I pay with a credit card the price is $12,593. Comes with a lifetime warranty etc.

Another company gave us a bid on the Anderson 400 series for $17.5K. The final quote was from a Sunrise dealer whose price was $13.8K on their normal window.

Rob - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rob, you have three nice bids there to be honest. Do you want a wood window in the Andersen 400 series? They are obviously much more expensive than vinyl, deliver worse energy efficiency and do not typically last as long. They are beautiful if properly maintained. I think this is the question you need to answer. If you want the wood window, then go with the Andersen 400 series.

I personally think vinyl is the way to go for the overwhelming majority of homeowners. Of the two bids you have, the Okna at $12.5K is obviously the lowest price and the window is very high quality. This is what I would go with, unless you felt the Sunrise dealer was going to do the better install. Then I'd go with the Sunrise.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017


Okna Windows Cost

We have a window replacement project and are stuck between two different bids. On the one hand theres a Sunrise dealer who bid it out at $6,550. One the other hand was an Okna dealer who bid it out at $6850. When I went back to the Okna dealer and told him about the bid I received he offered to drop his price to $6,110. So I went with the Okna dealer.

When I went back to the Sunrise dealer and asked him to beat it, he offered me the Vinylmax Edison for $6,900, which is not lower so I'm not sure why he threw this one out at me. Or the Berkshire Elite in a double pane at $4,999.

Steve - Homeowner - from 2017


Okna Insul-Tec Series Cost

I have been researching replacement windows, so far I have a price quote on 9 double hung windows at $13k using the Okna Insul-Tec window.

I've been reading that this is a really good window, but have also seen complaints about seal failure on them. Have you seen these issues?

Debra - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Debra, this sounds high as a per window cost, so I would advise getting a few more bids to see if its in the ballpark. You really never know until you've had a couple of quotes to compare.

In terms of seal failure on the Okna, I haven't heard of this. This can happen to all double paned windows eventually, but Okna makes a really good product and although they aren't perfect, I would trust their manufacturing quality over the vast majority of producers out there.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


OKNA Insul-Tec vs Marvin Infinity

How does the Marvin Infinity stack up with the OKNA Insul-Tec in a double hung style? We are replacing 25 year old vinyl windows. The Infinity was bid out at $13.5K, and the Okna was $10.2K.

Alice - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Alice, the Marvin Infinity is a good fiberglass window, well built and attractive. The Insul-Tec from Okna is a very good vinyl window, well built and nice enough looking The Okna will offer better performance data and is obviously less expensive. If it were me and you like the way the Okna Insul Tec looks, then I would go with this for the $10.2K.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna Insultec Deluxe Prices

We are down to 2 estimates for 35 windows. The only caveat is we are probably going to be moving in 6 or 7 years.

Preservation Series: $15K

Okna Insultec Deluxe: $18K

Steve - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steve, the Okna Insultec is better than the Preservation window and definitely worth the extra $3000. This is a very good price on the Okna by the way. I would probably put in the Okna even if you are moving. I'm not sure if you'll recoup the $3000 but you could say you recently updated the windows with one of the best vinyl windows on the market and hopefully that will factor in somewhere when you go to sell the house.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 500 Series Window Pricing

I've gotten a few bids on full frame replacement windows to replace the outside and inside wood trim. The contractor I'll be using likes the Okna 500 series and would be charging us $660 per window.

Rowland - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rowland, this sounds like an excellent deal at $660 per window for all of that work. The 500 Okna is a great window.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna Insul-Tec Costs vs Elements

After researching windows for literally months, I have collected my 4 bids and narrowed it down to 2. The two windows are quoted out at virtually the same price. So which one do I go with?

Okna Insul Tec

Soft-Lite Elements

Lindy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lindy, both of these selections are excellent. The Soft-Lite Elements is the better window of the two in my opinion. I would still look at the installers as a tie break, but assuming equal installation quality, the Elements is darn near impossible to beat.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 500 Windows Prices vs Harvey

We have 35 windows (some are pretty small) that need to be replaced in our home in PA. Our builders wants to use Harvey Tributes, which seems to have good features and options. His installed price was $390. We also got a bid on the Okna 500 which turned out to be $455 per window. The 800 series was $490.

Maxine - Homeowner - from 2012

[Contractor Response]

Hi Maxine, the Harvey Tribute is good and the price you have on it is excellent. But so to our the Okna 500 and 800 series. I would think any choice you make you can't go wrong.

Okna 600 Windows Prices

The Okna 600 Eco Pro series is the newest model from the company. The window uses a less robust frame extrusion and offers fewer bells and whistles. The overall look is similar to the Okna 500: foam inserts, double weatherstripping, standard low-e glass and locking mechanism. The window is overall well built and should be considered a solid mid range vinyl window.

Okna 600 Series Cost

What do you think of the Okna 600 series for $8,900?

Josh - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Josh, 15 windows for $9K with the Okna 600. Very solid price. A coin flip for me between the Quantum II and the Okna 600. Either one is a winner in my book. I’d choose the installation company with the better reputation and reviews.

Okna Windows Complaints

Hi Tim - we’re finishing our basement and wanted to replace 2 steel frame single pane windows with sliders. They measure 12.75” vertical x 31.75” horizontal.

As a keen reader of your forum here, I knew Okna’s were the way to go. We have 2 local dealers here in Southern New Hampshire, and I called them both about pricing the job. Dealer #1 said he required a 6 window minimum to even come out. Dealer #2 came out and gave us an estimate, but upon arriving said they required a 3-window minimum.

I tried to entice them by stating that this would be an audition for replacing the rest of our 22 double-hung windows within the next 3 years. They didn’t budge.

Dealer #2 showed me an Okna 600 series window and then nearly made me vomit with the price: $7,212 to replace 2 basement windows with sliders and one smaller double hung window (to meet the 3 window requirement)! Then he “called his supervisor” and said he could do the deal today for $4,000 if I paid cash. Given the pricing I’ve seen on here for around $500 per Okna 500 series window installed, I was flabbergasted and let him know that I “knew the market” and that I couldn’t understand his price when Renewal by Andersen quoted me $3,000 to only do the 2 basement sliders. Wow!

When I called him out on this he replied that this business model of pricing windows high works, and that most folks don’t question it. He then shared that this summer he priced a 56 window high-end vacation lake home up north at a starting price of $114,000 to do all their windows, and ended up doing the job for $68,000. Talk about a used car salesman…which ironically he admitted to being for 10 years when we were chit-chatting before he left.

To make matters worse, I called the Okna Factory in Pennsylvania to see if I could buy windows from them and have someone else install them. They quickly said that I’d have to work with my area dealers to purchase any windows. Well, my 2 options didn’t work out. One wouldn't come out for a small job and the other tried to rob me.

We ended up going with Alside Mezzo’s, with ClimaD Therm double panes and insulated frames for $650 each, or $1,300 for the entire job - installed by a father and son team who have installed a lot of these and have not have any problems with them. They also use foam around the frames and make sure they’re installed right.

So, there is my story of trying to get Okna’s in NH for a reasonable price and not being able to. It makes me nervous for when I have to do my 22 double hung windows later on. $500 / window - or even a bit more for Okna’s sounds reasonable to me. But if I can’t get that pricing in southern NH, I’ll have to go with another manufacturer.

All of you out there, Buyer Beware! Know the product pricing and the companies in your area before you invite them into your home!!

Okna EcoMax Windows

Hi, I received a quote from NewPro in Woburn MA for their Okna EcoMax windows. The sales rep said they are the only retailer in this area that carries the higher end composite version of the windows as opposed to the vinyl. I’m not sure how their names correspond to the different series on the Okna website (400, 500, 800 series etc). Okna doesn’t say that they carry a vinyl line and then a more expensive composite line???

The quote was $26k (incl installation) for 15 double hung replacement windows. This seems ridiculously high! I’m getting another quote from a NH based company that also only sells Okna windows. Are there different lines that I should be aware of or am I comparing apples to apples? Please advise! Thank you!

Dawn - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dawn, I sent your a breakdown of Okna's top four windows, with the Starmark or 900 as their composite window, while everything else is vinyl. All excellent products. However, your quote is way too expensive. You need a few more bids to see what else is out there.

Okna 600 Series Price Bid

We have 6 windows that are standard sized, all double hungs and no grids. We live in Atlanta, GA and would love a little guidance. The prices are per window installed.

Zen Softlite Nirvana: $675

Okna 600: $600
Sunrise Essential: $650
Great Lakes Comfort Series: $450

Rohan - Homeowner - from 2019

Rohan, the Great Lakes option would top my list. The Okna 600 would be my runner up, followed by the Soft-Lite "Nirvana" or Soft-Lite Classic.

Okna Eco-Pro Price Quote

I live in New Hampshire and have a bid on the OKNA 600 Eco-Pro that seems really high to me. Almost $1000 per window.

Wayne - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Wayne, that's too much for the Eco-Pro, which is Okna's more entry level window. Get a few more bids to see if that's the price because of the installation requirements or its just a rep trying to make a killing.

Sunrise and Soft-Lite should be available in your area. A top end Simonton isn't bad as well, probably as good as the Eco-Pro.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


OKNA 600 Eco-Pro or ProVia Endure

I have 2 bids; either the OKNA Eco-Pro 600 or the PROVIA Endure. We have 26 windows in all: 6 of which are large, 8 medium, and 10 odd shaped. The install is somewhat tricky as well.

OKNA Series 600: $20.5K

Provia Endure: $19.5K

Maria - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Maria, both of those bids are solid, especially considering the tricky install. I think the ProVia Endure is the better window, but not by much. I'd pick the company with the better installation record.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


OKNA ECO-PRO 600 Price Quote

I just got a price quote for 10 windows using the OKNA 600 ECO-PRO. The bid price was $9,9090.

Sylvia - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sylvia, my first impression is that the bid sounds high. You should confirm this by getting a few more bids. They'll tell if the quote is fair or is too high. The best way to get a great deal is to collect more bids.

Okna 700 Windows Prices

The Okna 700 series is the company's casement and awning window. The Okna 700 models are some of the best casements on the market. Truly an excellent product.

Tim - Site Editor


Okna Eco Pro 700 Price

Hi Dane - could you give me your thoughts on the following windows: 13 windows plus patio door - casement preferred

Pella - fiber glass 27,000

Pella 250 or 350 series 22000 - 25000

Okna Eco Pro 700 22,000

Pittsburgh pa. 15243

Thanks for your help Dane

Charles - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Charles, the best window of the bunch is the Okna Eco Pro 700. BY A LOT. The Okna casement is the one of the very best there is...now, I have to say that those price quotes do seem very high to me.

If this were my project, I would feel compelled to get two more bids — from a Soft-Lite dealer on the Imperial LS or Elements series (comparable to the Okna 700). And from either a Sunrise Restorations dealer, or a Polaris Ultraweld dealer.

I would just want to see how that price compared to the other three you have. They are all in that same range, so I am kind of assuming that that’s the fair market price, but....doesn’t hurt to see if you could save a couple/few thousand dollars on a comparable window.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


Okan 700 Series Review

Tim, thanks for all the advice and tips. I need to replace 22 casement windows (5 small, 15 medium, and 2 large). Two of the larges, and two of the mediums, flank large fixed windows in the LR and DR, respectively. I also have three basement windows that need replacing. I've done my homework and narrowed down window manufacturers to Sunrise Restorations/V Class, Okna 700 and Ideal Majestic Signature series.

I put a comparison chart together to compare all three manufacturers and glass types, along with other key parameters to compare regarding glass and window construction (see below). Question for you is, how large do differences in U-factor and SHGC need to be to become meaningful? Is there a noticeable difference between a U-factors differing by .01 or .02? Same question regarding SHGC numbers, how far apart do the numbers need to be before they become noticeable? Are triple panes worth the extra cost?

Since I live in central NJ, we have warm summers and cold winters, so I need to strike a balance. Which windows would you recommend I focus on most for each of the different manufacturers? I may mix glass types depending on which windows face east, west, north and south, as some windows really get a lot more sun than others, so those windows would be better having lower SHGC.

I'm meeting with Sunrise Restorations and Okna dealer/installers this week and Sunrise V Class dealer/installer the following week. All dealers/installers are reputable firms who've been around for decades.

Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Gus - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gus, I think you are getting too hung up on these small little differences. All of the three windows you are considering are truly excellent. The only real difference I saw was the SHGC, but SHGC is how much heat comes through a window and this a bit of a mixed bag. Some homeowners want to retain heat in the winter, others want to repel heat in the summer. So there is not always a clear cut answer to the proper SHGC number.

You finding an excellent window and excellent installer is really the whole kit and caboodle. If I had to rate these windows heads up (and same price) it would go Okna 700, Sunrise Restorations, and Ideal Majestic Signature.

For me, the bigger issue would be to find the company that had the better reputation and reviews to do the work. This is where my focus would be, not on the little differences between the windows. By the way, these numbers all change a bit based on grids/no grids, window size, glass package, etc.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2021


Okna Casement Window Cost

I'm replacing 10 casements and want a tan exterior and dark oak interior. Sunrise offers this color combination and quoted me out at $10,500. An OKNA dealer quote me out at $9600.

Paul - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Paul, Sunrise and Okna both make a very nice casement. I might put the Okna on top and therefore would say go with the less expensive Okna bid.

Okna 800 Windows Prices

The Okna 800 or EnviroStar series is one of the best vinyl windows on the market. The 800DX uses a thick and durable frame, along with impressive features and components. Performance wise, consumers can expect a U-value is 0.25 and air infiltration is 0.01. Impressive numbers for sure.

The Envirostar is available in lots of colors and hardware options. Comparable to the Soft Life Elements series.

Marc - Homeowner - from 2020


Okna 800DX vs. 500DX

Hi Dane - I have rethought my situation and now am planning on vinyl replacement windows for our home. Got pricing for Apex triple pane (neighbor just got them and is veryhappy), MIDW 1650 triple pane version, and Okna 500dx & 800dx

8 double hung 32x62

APEX $6500 Made by Alside in, I'm told, a separate assembly line limited to only Apex windows.

MIWD $3600

OKNA $5600 (500dx)

OKNA $6600 (800dx)

Ken - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ken, if this were my project I would go with the Okna 500DX. It’s a better window than the Apex Insignnia (an Alside 8000 series window) and the energy efficiency numbers bear this out. The MI 1650 is not a high quality product in my opinion.

The Okna 500DX is an excellent window and one I would absolutely put in my own home. The Okna 800 is awesome, but I’m not sure it’s worth the extra $125 per window upgrade cost.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna 800 Bid Price

Hi Tim, I was hoping you could tell me if I received a fair price on this Okna quote. I need 16 windows quoted (1 slider, 1 picture and 14 double hung) along with 1 bay (picture w/2 double hungs) and 1 patio sliding door. Something seems a little off on the price sheet he left behind. It did not have the bay window price on it. But subtracting the total cost from what was listed on the sheet the cost of the bay comes out to be $7,515. This is close to double the cost of all other quotes I have received so far for the bay. Here is a breakdown below. The salesman also stated i could upgrade to the 800 series for $30 a window. Is this worth it in your mind?

Here are the prices listed on the quote

Windows: $9,102(basic no special options)
Options: $265
Sliding door: $3,200
Installation: $2,060

SUB-TOTAL - $21,902

Less 25% cash discount

Total - $16,427

Thank you so much for your time

Marty - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marty, once you add in the cash discount, the price is very fair. 16 windows, 1 bay window and 1 patio slider for $16K is quite a good price considering the cost of the bay window and patio door. The $21K is at the upper end of what I would think it would cost. Again, the $16K is quite reasonable.

To answer your question about the upgrade to the 800 series. For $30 per window, I would definitely upgrade to the 800. Best of luck on your project!

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019


Okna 800 Prices

Got a bid from an Okna guy who offered me the Enivrostar for $530 per window. The Okna 500 series were $480 a window.

Ricky - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ricky, the price you were quoted on both the 500 and 800 is quite good. Personally, I'd go with the 800 Envirostar model for $530 a window.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 800 vs. 500

Contemplating 11 Okna 800 or 500 series windows. 8 are 36" by 58", and 3 are 20" by 38".

Okna 500 Series: $580 each

Okna 800 Series: $800 each

Huck - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Huck, the 500 pricing is quite good. The 800 is expensive, that's to much of a mark up to move from the 500 to 800.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna EnviroStar Slider Costs

I've been going through your site for weeks now and have gleaned a ton of knowledge thus far. I was hoping to get some information and insight on a price quote 12 windows. 3 of them are 5’ wide and longer, so we are doing sliders with a fixed window in the middle.

The quote came from a reputable company near me. They utilize Okna, which I have researched like crazy…Seem to be good windows.

(3) Three-Lite EnviroStar 820 sliders

(6) Two-Lite EnviroStar 820 Sliders

(2) Two-Lite PrecisionWeld 420 Sliders – These are for garage and don’t need to be as efficient

(1) 700 Casement Series Window

Installed, including clean up and all that jazz is $7457.00.

Does this seem like a reasonable price? And do you have any qualms for Okna windows?

Thanks in advance!

Lindsey - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lindsey, this is a very nice quote for the windows you described, especially given that 3 of them are quite large. Okna is a great manufacturer and they make a high quality vinyl window. You could try to get them to come down on their price, but I think what you have right now is quite good.

Best of luck to you on your project and congrats on getting a fantastic window that should serve you well for many years to come!

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Okna 800 vs Alside Mezzo

Would love your opinion on a cost bid on 17 Okna 800 series. 4 will have an interior wood laminate and 2 will have the bronze exterior finish.

The quote was $14,400 installed. This seems high, especially considering the Alside Mezzo was $8,900 for the exact same project.

Emile - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Emile, The Okna 800 is a vastly superior window to the Alside Mezzo. It's probably worth the extra cost, even though that is quite a bit more. I'd go back to the Okna dealer and tell him his price is outside of your budget and see if he'll come down on the price at all. You can always use the Alside quote as leverage.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 800 vs Vytex Potomac

We have a few quotes for 11 windows that include installation and all removal. We'd love to get your take.

Okna 500 Deluxe: $5200

Vytex Fortis: $5450

Okna 800 Deluxe- $5850

Vytex Potomac: $5850

David - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

David, all four quotes are very reasonable. The Okna 800 and Vytex Potomac are excellent windows, so of the best on the market. They are well worth the small premium they are asking for the upgrade. I'd put the 800 just slightly over the Potomac.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna Envirostar Windows Cost

We have our original Andersen wood windows from our home built in the early 90s. We've had numerous bids from a number of different sale people and honestly we are confused as to what to do. These are the bids we have up to this point.

Okna 800 Enviro Star: $10K

BFRich Cabernet: $13K

Global Tech 12: $16K

Andersen 400 Woodrite: $33K

Andersen by Renewal: $36K

Joe - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joe, this is an easy answer. The Okna bid, your lowest by far, is the best window of the bunch. How often does this happen? Almost never. I'd take advantage of this and ink the deal. However, it does sound like you like the look of wood. The Okna 800 window comes in an interior laminate in natural wood, cognac, or cherry.

The laminates look very close to wood and do not require the maintenance that the wood windows do. They will add to the cost some, but you'll get the best of both worlds.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Okna 800 Windows Cost

We received quotes from an Okna dealer on the 1800 triple pane for $1000, on the 800 for $941, and on the 500 series $860. This is per window pricing with grids and full installation. Base on the pricing I'm seeing on your website, this seems really high.

Lynn - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lynn, this certainly does sound high, but there are lots of reasons why this may be. The only way to answer this question is to get a few more bids. It's very possible that you have a heavy install that requires lots of extra work. Or that the Okna dealer threw out a high number. You won't know until you collect your bids.

Sunrise, Soft-Lite, HiMark, Zen, Polaris, and Kensington would be the brands I'd look at. Their mid range options are going to offer the best value for your dollar. Good luck!

Okna 1800 Windows Prices

The Okna 1800 series is essentially the 800 Envirostar with triple pane glass. The Okna Enviro Star is an excellent window and with the triple pane option it is pretty much unbeatable.

Tim - Site Editor


Okna Enviro-Star Price Quote

I recently had 5 Okna Enviro-Star Delux double hung welded windows installed. 3 were average size and 2 were actually smaller windows outside the picture window. And it was buy 4 and get the fifth window free. The contractor bid it out at $6386, which now that I'm reading your website seems ridiculous.

Valerie - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Valerie, definitely an expensive bid. It's the reason I'm always urging consumers to get multiple price quotes so you can compare and contrast. Contractors oftentimes get different pricing on different products. I'm sorry you didn't get a better deal Valerie.

Okna 1800 Bid Cost

Okna 500 Cost: $700 each

Okna 800 Cost: $778 each

Wendy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Wendy, those costs about what I'd expect to see from a highly reviewed Okra rep whose been in the business for a long time. I would still try and negotiate the price if I were you, but I'm not sure if they would budge. Always worth a shot though!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018


Okna 1800 Window Costs

We are building a home in the mid Atlantic region and have 28 windows to replace. We have quotes on either the Provia Aspect or Okna 800. Both quotes come in right around $24,000. Which would be the better option do you think? The Okna dealer offered us the 1800 series for an additional $3,000, just to make things more complicated :)

Carrie - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Carrie, the Okna 800 is the much better window than the ProVia Aspect, which is their mid range window. The 800 is the premium window from Okna, which enjoys the better reputation over ProVia. (ProVia makes very solid windows and excellent doors by the way.) $100 to upgrade from the 800 to 1800 is what I would expect. If your winters are really cold, you may want to consider it. If not, I would stick with the 800.

Okna Elegante Door Prices


Okna Elegante Sliding Door Quote

Hoping to get your opinion regarding cost for Okna Elegante 5 foot and 6 foot sliders, white with no options at $8,088.00. Unfortunately, I did sign a contract today but am having second thoughts thinking the estimate is too high. I do have 5 days to cancel and but wanted to get your thoughts.

Looking forward to your reply.

Sara - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sara, doors have even more price variation than windows. That sounds really high to me. I would cancel the contract and take a bit of time to find some more bids. That same high price will still be there if it turns out your project really requires that high price tag. I would search google for the following brands: Polaris, Soft-Lite, Kensington, Anlin, Harvey, Amerimax, Vytex, Zen, Ideal and Sunrise.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Robert, that is a lot of windows and doors! The bid doesn't sound too high to me for all those windows, doors and garage doors.

The Okna bid sounds better than the Soft-Lite bid to me--if you figure three garage doors are $7000 (minimum), 2 french doors are $3000 (minimum) and the other 2 doors are $1000. That's at least a $3K savings over the Soft-Lite. I do like the Imperial LS window though.

Okna Starmark Windows Prices

The Okna Starmark window has a thick frame, which makes for a strong and durable window, but also means less glass area. It is considered one of the best composite frames, but home owners with smaller window openings might prefer something with more glass. This model is comparable to a Renewal By Andersen, although the Okna often gets better reviews at a lower price. Please Note: In 2019, Okna upgraded their composite window to the Starmark EVO model. So this is where we will be posting most of the pricing questions going forward. Starmark Evo Series

Tim - Site Editor


Okna Starmark Pricing vs. Renewal By Andersen

Hi Dane, we have looked into Renewal by Anderson, Marvin wood windows, Sierra Pacific, and Windsor. I love the Renewal by Andersons but we have over 30 windows and they want nearly $1500 per window!

Carl - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Carl, if you want to go with good composite window, I would suggest the Okna Starmark over the Renewals. They will cost about half as much as they will offer better performance data by far. You could go with a high end vinyl as well. Okna is a very good manufacturer of high end vinyl windows. I'd start here and see if you can't get a high quality window in the $750 range.

Renewal Price Bid: $17,000

Grant, the Renewal bid is too high for the quality of window. The Sunrise bid is the best. The Starmark is a very good window, but it's too expensive.

Okna Starmark EVO Prices

The Okna Starmark EVO, or the 7500 series, is the updated composite frame from Okna. By far the best composite window on the market, but only available in the mid west and upper eastern united States. This is a pricey window, but for a pretty good reason. For a standard sized Starmark window with standard installation, consumers can expect to pay in the $800 to $900 per window for the Okna Evo Starmark.

Okna 7500 Series Cost

Hello I’ve started my search on finding the right window and installer. I’ve received one bid so far from west shore home. I was told the window was the okna 7500 series? Though I can’t find the window on their website it looks like the starmark brand to me. Anyways, I have 12 double hung windows and their bid came in at 21,000 at first. After some talking and telling them there’s no way I can spend that much he said they would do a cash price of 15,000. But that still seems high to me. Your thoughts? I’m in Kentucky if that matters

Josh - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Josh, you are correct that the Okna 7500 is the Starmark Evo 7500 Series. Yes, that bid does sound high to me, although that's an expensive composite window and a very good one. Plus, Covid has increased demand and window dealers are, at times, charging some really high prices. Honestly, the best way to move forward is to go out and get some other bids to see what's available in your area and get some comparison costs. Here's my list of good and great window brands.

Okna Starmark Composite Costs

Hello Dane, first, I would like to thank you for the work you and Tim have done on your site helping people figure out how best to shop for replacements windows. It is a truly daunting task for the uninitiated. I have attached the specifics from a proposal I received recently on Okna products but a simplified version is below. I would appreciate any guidance you could give me on whether or not it is a good price.

The broad strokes:

I am in Illinois, replacing 14 windows and two doors (one patio, one entry door with 2 sidelights).

The windows proposed are the Okna 800 series but other options and pricing were provided as well. The patio door is the Okna 8800, the entryway door is American Home Series, as are the sidelights.

800 series windows, with patio door and entryway door: $24,479

500 series windows, with patio door and entryway door: $23,338

Starmark Composite windows, with patio door and entryway door: $28,823

I also received a quote from Renewal by Anderson, for just the 14 windows they wanted almost $26,000. To include a patio door and entryway door would have added another $18,000. I don't think this is a reasonable proposal for the products they would be providing.

Thank you in advance for your guidance.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Keith, in terms of the Okna, I think the $1500 more for the 800 series is probably worth the upgrade. I personally don't think the step up to the Starmark is worth the upgrade cost.

The Renewal option is insanity. Two doors for $18K is borderline criminal.

The Okna 800 is one of the best if not the best, but you are paying a pretty penny for the privilege.

If this were my project, I'd collect a couple more bids to check if you can't get a good product at a better price.

[Site Editor's Answer]

So, you will pay more for composite windows, which you are seeing. It's a big price tag for sure. I don't honestly think they are better than top tier vinyl windows myself. Most composite vinyls are simply a blend of vinyl and wood/sawdust. Still, they are stronger often times than vinyl and they make great window frames. The Starmark is an excellent composite window, but the 800 model achieves better energy efficiency.

It's interesting that the HiMark dealer is offering a lower price than the Okna dealer, usually this is flipped.

You can always upgrade the Okna 500 or 800 to include foam filled chambers. This adds some energy efficiency and strength to the frame.

Since you are in New Jersey, I would be remiss not to mention that Ideal windows makes a very good vinyl window in the Platinum 3000 and Majestic models. These are often priced out very well and they are on par with the Okna 500, but often quite a bit less.

Starmark EVO Composite Triple Pane Costs

We went to an Okna showroom to see the display of the sample the guy showed us - very disappointed - it was the exact same window sample! He told us to drive up (40 mile drive) to see the actual window and it was the sample....We have 26 windows and a patio slider.

Anyway, we asked about the other series and he showed us the 500 and 800. The 800 was nicer looking and interior color we wanted wasn't available on the 500. The 800 was $31K

I've attached the quotes from Home Sealed Exteriors - 26 windows, patio door and screen/storm door (Starmark EVO Composite triple pane, 800 series with double pane and triple pane, both with upgraded hardware). $36K

Hardy & Jensen for Pro-Via Endure - EN600 series triple pane windows (26), Endure 6512 patio door and Pro-Via Spectrum 219 full view screen/storm door came to $31,370.00

Ultimate Home Concepts - Polaris double pane replacement windows (14) and patio door (no screen/storm) with a few style combinations ranged between $23,315 & $29,0959.

Home Sealed Exterior pushed how much better their windows than the other brands due to their Air Infiltration rates - said the others won't talk about it because they are as good (I didn't see it in the other's catalogs either). That's all and good but the guy is getting kinda pushy.

Is there anywhere to get stats on pricing by area?

Thank you.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Frustrating as far as the showroom experience goes.

For me the Okna 800 at $31K is the best of the offers. The 800 is my favorite window and better than the ProVia Endure.

I don't think the Starmark is worth the extra money because these bids all seem at the top of the price scale.

By the way, the Okna 500 AI is .02 and the 800 is a .01. By contrast, the ThermalWeld AI is 0.06 and the UltraWeld is .01.

There are stats on pricing because every project is different.

The second option for me is to go with the cheaper options on the Polaris ThermalWeld and get the job done for $23.3K. You could also go to the Polaris rep and say if he will give you your "must have" options for $24K for instance, then you will sign the purchase order. Still a very solid window and you save yourself $7K.

Okna Evo 7500 Series Window Pricing

Good afternoon Dane, I feel a bit strange requiring about a bid we received from a company to replace our windows here in Wisconsin but you were recommended to us.

We are considering replacing with Okna, Evo 7500 series windows.

The bid was on:

5- 59X52 slider pocket replacement windows.
3- 46X46 slider pocket replacement windows.
1, 58X46 slider pocket replacement window.
1, 102X52 slider pocket replacement window.
2, 23X 52 Casement pocket replacement windows.
1, 23X46 Casement pocket replacement window.
1, 34X34 awning pocket replacement window.
2 Patio doors Model # SGD8800

The total project estimate is $25,827.00

I feel that this may be a bit on the high end, however I did like the overall quality from what little I know about windows.

Being a rookie in window shopping I was hoping you could give me your opinion.

Sincerely.

Brenda - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brenda, I agree that's a high bid. I would continue to collect bids to see if that price is an outlier or closer to market price. My guess is there is a better deal out there. I will send you my list of windows and brands for you to take a look at...
