Seaway Window Prices
Seaway window prices are in the mid to upper end of the vinyl window price range. The company is headquartered in Erie, PA and has been in business for over 50 years. They are much more of a regional manufacturer and offer two main vinyl window options, the Ovation and the Encore window series. They also offer Storm Sentry windows and doors.
Seaway Signature Gold InsulGlaze 700
Thanks Dane and I have one more bid that looks real good. I'm not familiar with the brand though. It's Seaway made in Erie, PA. Looks good to me.

Michael, that Signature Gold InsulGlaze 700 looks like a very solid vinyl window. Seaway in general makes very decent windows and it sounds like this is their cream of the crop sreies. Any window with a .01 AI is a winner in my book. Nice price too. Make sure the installer has a good reputation and you should be good to go. That Polaris UltraWeld bid is still a strong second for me.

Anita, the Seaway Signature is good, but I'd go with the Zen Lotus over the Seaway Signature 700 window.
Seaway Encore Windows
The Seaway Encore window is their standard vinyl window that is available as a double hung and includes some nice features. Some of the standard features include a true sloped sill, multichamber sash, fusion welded frame, two vent latches, triple weatherstripping and a selection of 5 exterior colors. Comparable in price and quality to Harvey windows prices, perhaps their popuar Classic series.

Seaway Windows Warranty
Seaway offers a very good Limited Lifetime Warranty on both their Encore and Ovation windows. This includes a lifetime warranty on the mainframe, sash, balance and locking systems. Any parts that are defective will be replaced by the company, although the owner is responsible for the installation replacement cost. The lifetime warranty also extends to the insulated glass (including accidental breakage on many, but not all, of their standard styles of windows). They offer a one time transfer to a new owner as long as the company receives a written notification of the title change and the owner submits a $50 transfer fee (this is relatively standard in the industry). The new owner does not receive the complete lifetime warranty on the insulated glass, but instead gets a percentage of the cost depending on how long the windows have been installed.
