Window Nation Prices

Window Nation prices should run $600 to $950 per window fully installed. The company sells two main window brands, the first is a rebadged Vytex line (rebranded and labeled exclusively for Window Nation). The second brand is Soft-Lite windows. Vytex windows are generally considered a very good mid range vinyl window manufacturer, while Soft-lite windows are considered one of the elite brands on the market (although Soft-Lite was acquired in 2016 by Harvey Windows). Use the links below to find Window Nation pricing on the series of your choice.

Window Nation Prices :: Grandview Series

The Grandview series is actually made by Vytex, a manufacturer with a pretty solid reputation in the window industry. This relabeled window is a relatively common practice, and the Grandview model is a relatively solid mid range vinyl window. The Grandview series is Vytex's middle of the road vinyl window, which is a step down from their premium Fortis and Potomac-hp series.

Having said that, the Grandview is a solid vinyl window that should provide nice long term value -- depending on the price point. Performance wise, consumers can expect the Window Nation Grandview series to deliver a .26 U-factor and a .08 air infiltration rating -- both very respectable numbers.

WN Grandview Bid

Recently got a bid on the Grandview series from WN: 32 double hungs, and assorted others for a total of 35. $20,000. What do you think of this price and should I upgrade to the Fortis series? Thanks

Nick - Homeowner - from 2024

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nick, that is an excellent price point on the Grandview. The Fortis is an upgrade and I think you should ask for a bid on this window as well -- it certainly can't hurt. You might want to also get 2 or 3 more bids to see what else is out there and to use as a comparison, but right now I like what you have.

Grandview Price Quote

Hello there I was wondering if you can tell me if this is a good quote for 9 windows.

Model: GrandView W:36" H:60" Location: Level 3, Bedroom

8 Double Hungs, 1 Specialty

I was able to get it down to $8000 flat. After doing some research I saw a fair price was from $650 to $800. The price per window broken down is $888.00.

Keith - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Maybe a bit high, but not bad -- specialty shapes can be pricey. I have list of recommended brands if you want to collect a few more bids -- Window Cost Estimator

Window Nation Cost

Hello - I came across your website as I am looking at getting replacement windows. Could I get the list of good and great brands? Also, was wondering what you thought about softlite Barrington? We got a quote from Window Nation for 27 windows - 3 pictures, 4 casement and 22 double hung for $17,800 - they called it the Grand something or other. Although this is a great price we are concerned that since its so inexpensive ($20k less than Thompson Creek), will the windows look cheap? We were expecting to pay around $25k so were thrilled with the price but now we are having second thoughts. Thank you! Thompson Creek Windows Cost

- Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Leslie, that is a pretty solid price, but the Barrington isn’t my choice in the Soft-Lite family — I’d much prefer the Soft-Lite Classic or Pro. Could you get a bid on that window from WN? That might be in that $25K level and honestly it might provide better long term value for you.

Here is my list of good and great windows.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2023


Window Nation Prices

We are looking to replace 3 basement windows, 1 casement and 18 double hung/colonial grid -- 22 windows total. We are gobsmacked by the two bids we’ve received to date.

The quote for a mid-range Marvin Fiberglass replacements was $48,885 and the Grandview Vynex vinyl from Window/Nation was $32,386. These are quotes for their mid-range series. I can’t imagine the cost of a high end. Feel like these quotes are just way out of line. Neither of these businesses provide itemized numbers for product and installation they just quote on the entire project. Seems like they make up the prices as they go. I don’t live in a mansion, it’s a modest 3 bedroom 30 year old house with the original Anderson Wood Windows. Any suggestions on getting a fair price to replace these old drafty, rotting wood units would be appreciated.

Scott - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, those are both very high prices for 22 replacements here 2023. My advice would be to continue to collect a bunch of bids and see if you can’t find one that offers reasonable pricing. That’s the basic gist of today’s best approach in my opinion — collect them and see if you can’t winnow them down to something that makes sense.

Here is my list of good and great brands and options for you to peruse.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2023


Average Cost For Window Nation Windows

Dane, I have several quotes including three from your online form. I can't find where to post questions on the website so I'm sending this by email. I have about 24 windows to replace. My quotes are

WN 26K for Vytex Grandview

Pella 29K for 250 series with some upgrades: foam injection all. Triple pane and glass upgrades in master bedroom and foyer.

LongWindow 32.5K for Kensington Quantum2 series with glass upgrades in master bedroom and Foyer

Homefix Custom Remodeling 37K for Provia windows

Remodel USA 48K for Okna 7500 series. Very expensive but composite not vinyl with an amazing U factor of .17 on double hung. Sales rep was very pushy to "sign today" which was off-putting but if these are the best in the world I don't want to shoot myself in the foot out of spite.

Thanks so much for any thoughts you might have on these quotes...

Gene - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Gene -- so that's just WAY too much for the Okna. I think the best value might be the Kensington Quantum2 series. That's a great option -- not cheap but if this is your forever home, this might be the call I would make...

If your timeline is 12 years or less, I'd go with the WN Grandview -- it's a solid buy, just not necessarily a top tier option.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2023

Musa - Homeowner - from 2022

Hmmmm, I would advise getting a few more bids to see how the other dealers would charge for the tear out and to rebuild the frames -- plus of course the windows. Here is my list of good and great windows.

WN Grandview Costs

Dane, it's been a busy week with estimates. What are your thoughts on the following? The Okna 600 were priced at $18k but I have the option as listed if I commit by Monday due to "getting in on a bigger order." Sales pitch likely , but $3k less than it was a few days ago. No dealers in my area do the Okna

Zen Nirvana (Soft-lite Classic)
$11905.00
$700.29

Okna 600
$15540.72
$914.16

WN Grandview (Vytex)
$17295.00
$1017.35

ProVia Aspect Price
$18444.40
$1084.96

ProVia Endure
$19291.00
$1134.76

Okna composite
$33200.00
$1952.94

Brian - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor Answers]

Brian, the Okna 600 series would be my pick for the $914 if that price is still available. The Soft-Lite Classic at $700 would be the second best "value" of the bunch. Finally, the ProVia Endure at $1135 would be the third best value in my opinion.

My apologizes if my reply is too late -- most times that whole "you have three days before prices go up" is b.s. but you never know...

Dane - Website Editor - from 2022


Window Nations vs Castle Windows

Dane, I got 2 estimates that are close for the following windows: 2 Pane glass, extreme low E/argon gas, 2 - 32x60, 1 - 75x47, 1 - 23x43

Castle Windows Cost $5334

Window Nations (Grandview) $5583

What do you think is the best deal?

Thanks!

Mott - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mott, I would say the Grandview is the better deal. However, I would keep going with the bids because those don’t strike me as exactly cheap…I would get a couple more just to see how they compare…

Tim - Website Editor - from 2021


Window Nation Prices

I live in Washington DC and received a quote from WN for 5 double hungs (grandview) for $5210.00. Does this seem reasonable? Thanks

Stewart - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Stewart, seems high to me for the Grandview. I would check with Ideal to see if they have a rep in your area. Their Majestic and Platinum 3000 series are very good and often priced quite competitively.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


Window Nation Pricing

Hi! I would appreciate your feedback on a quote I received to replace 14 windows. Based on reading through your site it looks like the quote is high.

Thanks for your help.

Debbie - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Debbie, 14 Grandview windows for $11,350. I'm going to say yes this is expensive...however, the issue right now is that demand is through the roof so lots of manufacturers are increasing their pricing. The best way to know if there is a better deal is to at least get one or two more bids to compare this WN quote with. Here are my good and great recommended list.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2021


Window Nation Cost For GrandView Series

Hi, I am considering purchasing via Window Nation the following: Model: GrandView, Quantity 7.

Additional Items

Replace Wood Sill Interior or Exterior

Frame Out W/Stop, Insulation

I was quoted these Vytex Grandview windows including installation for $4800 net. I supposed that comes to $685 per window including install. Just wondering, like everybody else, If this is worth it. I live in the Chicago area.

Also, not to sound over cynical, but how do I know I get the exact window I paid for. For example, how will I ever know if it is, in fact, foam insulated other than taking their word for it. Is it possible to get a Georgetown Window from Window Nation but they just packaged it as Grandview? Just nervous about being scammed. Thanks for all of your help.

Steve - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steve, that's a fair price for the Grandview in my opinion, espeically given today's crazy prices. I've never heard of Window Nation pulling a fast one like that, but I get that question alot. Often there is an idenitfying logo on the slider latch that indicates the model. I forget how WN handles this, but it's worth an ask of the rep selling you the windows. Call them up and ask if the Grandview has something on the window that identifies that model. Assuming he says yes, ask him to snap a picture on his phone and send it to you. This is my best suggestion.

Quality companies don't pull these kinds of things (that I've ever heard of) because they could get in real trouble, either with a BBB complaint or with bad reviews on sites like mine.

Window Nation Windows Prices

I live in the Cleveland area and received a 2020 quote from Window Nation for 7 double-hung GrandViews, 1 Potomac kitchen garden window, replacing my kitchen bow window with a GrandView 3-part slider, and replacing a sliding glass door with a 7000 series sliding glass door. $18,000. Does this seem reasonable?

Marian - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

This sounds like it’s in the ballpark of reasonable. The problem is that bow windows can be quite expensive, along with the sliding door. Kind of tough to say whether this is the best deal out there.

I sort of think you need two more bids to really suss this out. Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris, Okna, Kensington windows, and Zen — all dealers that I would look into. Let me know what you come up with and I’m happy to weigh in on any additional bids you receive.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2021

Window Nation Cost

We have 25 double hungs to replace. The price is $14,600 for the Grandview window.

Liza - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Liza, the Grandview a very decent window that has a .26 U-factor and .08 air infiltration rating. I would say that that price is quite fair for this window. I always advice consumers to get multiple bids to see how the bids compare to one another, but this bid does seem quite solid to me.

Tim - Website Editor - from 2020

Window Nation Prices

We received a Window Nations price quote of $9000 to replace 12 openings. This includes 7 builds, 3 tempered glass and 1 3 part slider. Is this a good price? Grandview series. Thanks.

Robert - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Robert, that seems like it's in the ballpark of fair. Honestly though, you're not going to know if that's fair or not until you see a couple more bids. Too many project details to move the per window price up and down. I'd say find two more decent bids and then you will have your answer.

Feel free to shoot your bids over to me and I'm more than happy to provide you with my take on what you have.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2020


Grandview Windows Cost

Just received a quote of $17,802 for 28 double hungs, do you think that is a fair price? Sales rep said he had to get permission to get me this price and will call me back.

Thomas - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Thomas, paying $635 each for the Grandview isn't an unreasonable price. I have no idea what your installation requirements are so I can't say if this is a bit high or not. If this were my project, I would collect a few more bids to make sure I was getting the best deal I could. Two more bids will let you see how reasonable the Window Nation bid is and give you more window brands to consider.

I'd say you have one solid bid and now its time to see how it stacks up. If you do get a bid that's lower, but still want to go with WN, take the quote back to them and ask them to match it.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2020


Window Nation Costs

We received a quote from WN on 13 Grandviews. The installed price is $13080. We're in the DC Metro area. Is this reasonable for the Washington DC metro area?

Paul - Homeowner - from 2020

Paul, I think that's way high for the Grandview. I'd keep looking.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020


Nation Window Pricing

We had a quote from WN on 12 Grandview double hungs for 12500. Is this a lot?

Ted - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

The Grandview at $12,500 for 12 windows is really high. I'd get seom different bids to compare this to if this were my project quite high.

Tim - Website Editor - from 2020

Grandview Price Quote

Hi Tim, My name is Kevin I just bought a home from the 1940's and we definitely need all new windows. We got a quote from WN: 18 Grandview series and 1 ProVia sliding door, most are double hungs and a couple are XO sliders.

They quote is for $21,875 and honestly I haven't a clue whether this is a good bid or not. It's the first bid I've received so I'm not real sure.

Kevin - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor Answers]

Kevin, this bid could very well be overpriced. OR let's say it this way, there very well may be a better bargain out there for your project. Collect a few more bids from solid local dealers and that will give you your answer.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018


Window Nation Prices

Good Morning. I received a Window Nation pricing quote for 8 Double Hung Grandviews plus instillation for $6400.00 or $800/window. Is that a reasonable price?

Regards.

Greg - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor Answers]

Greg, there are so many variables for each project that i can't answer your question definitively. On the face of it, it does sound a bit high. So...get more bids. They will tell you if the bid is high, but also they are a great bargaining chip to use on WN if you like their windows but want them to come down on the price.

How to negotiate window prices,

Make sure to tell the sales people who come give you bids that you are collecting a quotes and will make a decision based on quality and price. This tends to send the message that you want their best bid up front.

Some companies to look for (who may or may not have dealers in your area) include sunrise, okna, soft-lite, polaris, zen, Vytex, and Wincore.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2018


Window Nation Prices

I have a quote for 17 windows from Window Nation using their Grandview window. 7 (33"X64") 2 (25"X65" tempered glass), 4 (33"X76" tempered glass), 2 (33'X64"), 1 (41"X40"), and 1 (25X52) all with low E argon, double pane, triple reflector coating and neat glass . Does this seem reasonable or should I negotiate further? Thanks. of $11.7 K from WN to replace all

Sid - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sid, I think you should always negotiate to find the best price possible. The price quote is certainly in the realm of reasonable, but you might be able to get a better deal elsewhere. I always suggest getting three bids and then using those three bids to help generate the best price.

Without seeing the project myself, it's very difficult to ascertain how fair it is. That's where the local bids come in -- don't hesitate to tell the other companies who give you a bid that you are collecting three quotes and would appreciate their best price up front as this is an important, but not the only, factor that will be driving your decision.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017


Vytex Grandview Costs

Window Nations gave me a quote on 13 vinyl windows —the Vytex GrandView was the model. They seem like good windows, but who knows? I live in Cleveland, Ohio. The bid price was $9835.00 and included grids and installation.

Leslie - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

A good window (not a great one but a middle of the road vinyl window), but that price is a bit high. I would see if you can't work it down a bit.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017


Grandview Windows Cost

Hi Tim,14 double hungs, 2 with tempered glass and all with lots of nice upgrades. Initial bid was nearly $21,000. After much negotiation, I got them

End result after 3 hours of back and forth at my dining room table is 10,070 (includes taxes)

Is this a good deal? That’s about $719 each.

Thanks for your help!

Ed - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ed, the Vytex Grandview is good, but not great. I'm not totally sure it's worth $720 each. I think you should be able to get a top tier vinyl window for that price. I would suggest you get a couple more bids to see some comparison prices. You can always go back to Window Nation.

If you said Window Nation wanted to sell you the Soft-Lite Imperial LS for $720, I would say that's fair, but not the Grandview. Of course, I don't know what your project specifics are, so I can't say if the price is unfair or not.

See if you can find a local company or dealer who sells the Okna 400, 500 or 800, Sunrise Classic or Restorations, Soft-Lite Imperial LS or Elements, Polaris Ultraweld, HiMark 500 windows, Zen Lotus, or Vytex Fortis or Potomac-hp, both of which are better than the Vytex Grandview. All of these would be better windows than the Grandview and I'll bet you could get it for close to that $720.

Tim - Website Editor - from 2017

[Ed's Reply]

Thanks so much Dane!

We aren't looking for a top level window as we are original owners of our house of 21 years and don't plan on being here for another 21!

We just want to get out of the drafty, heat and cold seeping windows we have now :) I

f I could get WN down to $600 a window do you think that would be fair? Or do you think it's not even worth that price point.

My problem is I sat with them for 3 hours last night and signed up, but I have 3 days to cancel. I told them today I was considering canceling and waiting to see if they lower the estimate.

Thanks for your help and insight!

Ed - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

If you can get them down to $600 then yes I'd say that's fair.

My point is this -- just because they came out and gave you an estimate doesn't mean they DESERVE your business.

I just don't want to see you overpaying for a middle of the road window when you could get the Sunrise Classic/standard for $650 and that's a better window than the Grandview in my opinion.

I do understand your position and it can be a stressful situation, which is ridiculous since it is windows!

Window Nation vs Simonton

Getting pricing and knowledge about windows is worse than trying to buy a new computer and I know some about computers. My house was built in 1956 and they are the original windows, I live in NJ. This is very frustrating, I received a few quotes. 1 form home depot and i know they don't do their own work. I also received a quote for Simonton 5500 series 14 Double Hung Units and 1 Picture Window) price: $8,500.00. I told him it was a lot of money but he wouldn't come down. So I said lets take out the kitchen and home office windows and he re-quoted at $6600. for 11 windows instead of 15 windows

I also received a Window Nation pricing quote below on the Grandview Series window. Total Sale Price $8,900.00. I think this is a better window-has better ratings but obviously more money but do i really need to pay that much.

Carol - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Carol, the Simonton 5500 and the Grandview, which is a relabeled Vytex are both good options. I don’t think the Grandview is a better window. I’d go with the Simonton for the $8500 unless you can get the Grandview rep to come down on his price.

Steve - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steve, if your timeline is 5 to 7 years in the home, I wouldn't go with highest bidder. However, Window Nation (your lowest bidder) is a solid operation -- they sell a number of different windows so I would go with their Georgetown or Grandview series, which are their more entry level options. Again, however, both of these series are very solid mid range options and, coupled with quality installation, they should serve you well -- as well as the next home buyers.

Curious what Midway windows would quote you out -- they might be under that $28K (although that $23K cash is enticing, although I never understand who has $23K to access free and clear)

Dane - Site Editor - from 2023

This is a Sunrise dealer and he basically said that they are not selling Restoration series these days. But they have something equivalent which is their Platinum Series. The brochure doesn't mention Sunrise anywhere, but I saw the order form in his laptop where Sunrise Vanguard was mentioned.

I like the higher VT on Sunrise, but don't know whether I am overpaying for a Vanguard window.

All the vendors have lifetime warranty and good reviews. American Weathertechs and WindowsPlus had the best reviews.

I am eager to know your feedback/advice.

Thanks in advance,

KR - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

KR, those are some good bids to be sure. My favorite is the Softlite Elements with Ultra S Glass for $24,960. The second would be the Sunrise "Vanguard" for $24,800 (I took the 5% off). These two models are comparable and some of the very best in the business. I would choose the dealer / company that gets the best cumulative reviews online since the two products are so close to one another.

Window Nation Envision Costs

WN gave me a bid to furnish and install the following:

(8) Double Hungs
Envision – detailed specifications in this brochure - Click Here
Total Price: $16,525.00
Current Incentives: $7,260.00
Final Price: $9,265.00 - Valid for 30 days
Additional Manufacturer's Incentive: $1,680.00
Your Project: $7585

Nikolai - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nikolai, $1000 for the Envision seems like a lot to pay for replacement windows. All of their incentives are ridiculous, they weren’t going to charge you $16K for 8 windows — well I’m sure they would gladly charge you that, but that’s highway robbery.

Keep looking would be my advise. The bid doesn’t say whether you are looking for full frame replacement or inserts. Full frame can run around the $800 to $1000 so make sure the bids specify what type of installation you are getting.

Here is my list of good and great windows in case you want to continue your search:

Sun Lite Envision Bid

Hi Dane, I had Window Nation give me an estimate of $654 each for Sun Lite Envision installed (total of 12 replacements). I am having someone give me and estimate on Anko tomorrow.

What do you think of the price for the Envision?

Jim - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jim, $654 for that window is fair, but not great. See how that Okna bid comes in and send it to me when you get it. Happy to help with the comparison shopping.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

[Jim's Reply]

Hi Dane, had Clearview window co. come give me an estimate on okna 500 insul-tec $ 577.00 per window, 800 okna enviro star at $ 664.00 per window. I was hoping to get your view on them.

Jim - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jim, the Okna bids are much better than the Window Nation. The Okna 500 and 800 are excellent top tier vinyl windows and those are great prices for those windows. The price difference between them is about what I’d expect. You could go with either one and be set.

Soft Lite Envision vs Polaris Plymouth

Dane, I'm evaluating quotes for 20 double hungs and possibly a sliding patio door. A couple of points that I wanted to get your opinion on:

- I've had two local companies come out because they represent brands (Sunrise, Soft Lite) that were highly rated on your website. That being stated, they are both really pushing windows that are 'made exclusively' for them. They look like decent windows but would like your opinion.

- Neither company has really given me a written quote; is this normal? I did get an email finally from the one company that is promoting the Soft Lite Envision but it seems a little shady to me that I've only gotten verbal quotes.

- It looks like the window manufacturers all make sliding patio doors; is it safe to assume that if you recommend a manufacturer's windows (Okna, or Soft Like or Sunrise), then you also recommend their sliding patio doors?

- We'll probably be in the house another 15 years so I'm looking for a decent but not top-of-the-line window.

Here are the quotes I've received:

Soft Lite Envision (exclusive to Window Nation) $12,886. Includes installation, lifetime warranty on complete window. U=.27, low-e & argon gas, .07 air infiltration

Polaris Plymouth windows (by Window Systems) - $12,928 - about the same in regards to U, etc.

Sunrise Restorations (through Window Systems)- $15,155

Thanks for your help. BTW, I found your website to be very helpful in my research on brands, manufacturers, etc.

Bryan - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Bryan, it is not unusual for companies to sell windows that are made "exclusively" for them.

It is absolutely safe to say that the quality of a company's patio doors are similar to the quality of their vinyl windows. This isn't always the case, but it is for Soft-Lite and Polaris -- Soft-Lite is better, Polaris is still good.

Not providing an actual quote would raise red flags for me -- what are they waiting for? Call them up and tell the rep or sales person you are collecting bids and you need their best quote to compare to your others (this lets them know you are serious and want their best quote for the project).

It does look they provided you a quote finally? At least with the Envision, which is the Soft-Lite Bainbridge model. Not the best window, but still pretty good with that .07 air infiltration.

I haven't heard of the Polaris Plymouth, I would think its a labeled ValuSmart window (their entry level) -- although perhaps their ThermalWeld -- I would definitely find out the answer to this (ask them, if they can't tell you the answer then you have to assume its the lower quality ValuSmart). I like the ThermalWeld, not so much the ValuSmart.

The Sunrise Restorations is an excellent window, easily the best of the bunch, but also the most expensive. Can you see if the Sunrise rep can give you a quote on the standard Sunrise window -- this is a great window and simply lacks some of the nicer upgrades of the Restorations.

The problem you have is that with your 15 year timeline, it's kind of tricky to know what to go with. What about trying to whittle the Sunrise Restorations bid down a bit. I don't think you're going to get much lower, but it's worth a shot. I like the idea of the standard Sunrise window, but some reps only have access to the Restorations.

Window Nation Prices :: Imperial LS Series

The Imperial LS Series is actually made by Soft-Lite, a manufacturer with a very solid reputation in the industry. Relabeling is a common practice, and the Imperial LS series is a high end vinyl window that will provide excellent long term value given proper installation.

In terms of performance, consumers can expect the Imperial LS to deliver a .03 air infiltration rate, U factor of 0.19, VT of 0.34, , and SHGC of 0.18. A very impressive vinyl window and definitely on my top ten list.

Window Nation Imperial LS Platinum

WN and Zen both bid out my project and are both using the Imperial LS Platinum. WN is about roughly $1600 bucks higher on 9 windows.

WNn claims they do better work than Zen and can't go any lower than $10,950.

Window Nation Imperial LS Cost

Hi Dana, thanks for your availability. I have the following quotes for 17 casements in Washington DC:

1. Wincore 7700 - $13,800

2. WN Imperial LS - $16,700

3. Simonton 6500 Series - $15,700

Which of these would you recommend and why? Also is there another brand that would be comparable to your pick among these three that I should consider?

Thank you.

Nase - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nase, the Imperial LS is the best window by far in this grouping. Two other ideas for window bids in your area include Ideal Windows and Okna. Both should be available. The Ideal Majestic and Okna 800 are comparable to the Imperial LS model, which is excellent.

Window Nation Imperial Price Quote

Hello, I had Window Nation out for a bid on 33 windows from Window Nations. They started at $38k, but I wasn't having any of that. They came all the way down to 28k.

Soft-Lite Imperial LS Triple Pane

I have 14 pocket windows that I need replaced and so far the bid prices seem quite high. Each of the windows includes tempered glass and full grids, which I know adds to the price.

Soft-Lite Imperial LS (triple pane): $915 each
Marvin Infinity: $1500 each
Vytex Grandview: $770 each

Imperial LS vs. Preservation Energymaxx 4 Series

Thanks for the tips Tim. I received the following quotes:

Andersen Renewal: $10k, was just ridiculous

Window Nation: $5,800 for Imperial LS series by Soft Lite

Zen: $6,600 for Nirvana series (also produced by Soft Lite)

Specialty Window and Door: $5,050 for Imperial LS series by Soft Lite, $4,450

Preservation Energymaxx 4 series by Alside

I'm torn between the Imperial LS and Preservation options above. I really like the Presevation EnegyMaxx 4 series , the window seems to be a decent window and I really liked the quoted price. I think the Imperial LS reviews a little better though. The dealer from Specialty Window and Door that gave me quotes on both said he's had better experience dealing with fixing warranty issues with Preservation windows over the Imperial LS. Funny thing, I just noticed tonight the 40 year old aluminum windows in my house are Alside windows, says Alside right on the locking latch.

What are your thoughts? Have any guidance?

Thanks again,

Ernie- Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ernie, I agree with you that the Renewal quote is way too high. Assuming that Specialty Window and Door has a good reputation for installation and their prices are the most affordable, I would go with them.

Of the two options they offer, I like the Imperial LS over the Alside Preservation, but that's just my opinion. Very interesting that Preservation dealt with warranty issues better than Soft-Lite. I haven't heard that before.

Bottom line is they are both very good windows and I think you would be well served by either. At this point, go with your gut!

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017


Imperial LS And Platinum Series

Hi, I’m a new home owner. I bought an older cap code house, it’s about 85 years old. It currently has these 40 year old aluminum windows that don’t seem very energy efficient. I got three quotes but from different installers on replacing all the windows, but they seemed to very quite a bit. I think after doing some research online I’ve narrowed it down to using Window Nation to install their version of Soft Lite’s Imperial LS and Platinum LS series.

Window Nation’s quote was for five casement windows (18” x 48”) as Imperial LS, one double hung (32” x 45”) as a Platinum LS (triple panel upgrade from the Imperial LS) and one picture window (91” x 48”) with sliders as a Platinum LS. I added having colonial grids to the windows. The total quote was $5,800. Does that price seem reasonable for the quality of window that I’m getting? I plan on living in this house a minimum of 7 years or longer. I want a windows that will last.

Any advice would be great. Thanks!

Ernie- Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ernie, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS and Platinum LS are excellent vinyl windows, two of the best out there. $5800 seems a bit high on the surface, but I have no idea how much work is involved putting them in and taking out your existing windows, etc.

How does the bid compare with the others you've received? Can you call the Window Nation rep and use a lower bid to get to his lowest price? Tell him you REALLY want to go with his company, but the price is out of your budget and if there was anyway to get that price close to the (fill in existing bid from another company), then I'm ready to sign on the dotted line.

Then give it a few days and wait. See if he gets back to you with a better price. You can always call him up after three days and go with him.

You are getting a good window with the Soft-Lite Imperial LS that should last for a good 20 years assuming the installation is done properly.

Window Nation Prices :: Georgetown Series

The WN Georgetown is a relabeled Vytex Georgetown series. The Georgetown comes standard with a DuraTex spacer, a fusion welded 2.75 inch sash and frame, sloped sill, constant force balance, extruded aluminum frame, low-e glass, cam locks, and 2.5 mm glass. A good entry level option, but not a fantastic vinyl window by any means. I'd call it a lower half mid range vinyl series selection.

Georgetown Series Cost

Hi Dane, I hope you are well. I got a quote for 8 double hung at $7300 by Windows Nation for the Vytex Georgetown. I know it's entry level but this is by far the lowest price I have gotten for windows and they have a lifetime warranty on window, parts and labor. Is this window too low level to use? It's specs don't seem bad, itc seems they have beefed it up over the years and yes less features and lower standard than the fortis but at 900 a window compared to Windows Plus at 1400 per window for fortis...seems that fortis is not that much better.

Bob - Homeowner - from 2024

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bob, the Georgetown is a solid window - it’s one of the windows that I feel bad about labeling it entry level - although it is Vytex’s least expensive window. The Okna 400 fits that bill too. Both solid vinyl windows. I think this is the much better option than paying $1400 per window for the Fortis. Definitely better bang for your buck here!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2024


Georgetown Series vs Ideal Majestic

Hello! I would love your insight into quotes received to replace 14 windows in a 4-story townhouse: 8 double hung and 6 picture fixed frames and pocket installation. All of the companies have similar ratings and reviews but the quotes varied:

Ideal Majestic - $8,585

Vytex Fortis - $11,611

Vytex Potomac - $12,516

ProVia Aspect - $11,684

ProVia Endure - $12,459

Georgetown Series - $$19,000

Eric - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Eric, wow, what a great grouping of bids! The Ideal Majestic windows bid would be my pick by a landslide based on the price. This assumes that the installation company has good to hopefully great reviews. But yes the Majestic would be my pick.

Window Nation Georgetown Price vs. Okna 500

Dane, we are looking to replace 16 windows in our house and have several estimates that I'm interested in getting an opinion on. Our window measurements are:

(4) 68"x38"

(6) 56"x38"

(2) 56"x76" (double 56"x38")

(2) 40"x38

The windows are original wood from 1985 (we think so) construction of the house and are single hung. We bought the house a couple years ago and we are going to stick around in the home long term. We live in the Northern Virginia area. We have the following quotes for Double hungs, Low e glass, argon filled, fusion welded, Grids Full, half screen:

WindowNation Vitex/Georgetown $12,460

Vinyl-Lite Factory $11,876

Okna 800 $20,270

Okna 500 $18,990 

These numbers per window are quite different. I wanted to get your opinion on if the estimates are fair and if there is a way to level them and make a fair comparison. I'm willing to negotiate but wanted to be fully informed before I try to. If the estimates are reasonably fair, which would you prefer?

Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

Jorge - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor Answers]

Jorge, if you were going to stay in the home for 10 years and move, I would say the WindowNation Georgetown is the way to go. However, since you are going to be in the long term, I would probably stretch and do the Okna 500. WOW has an excellent reputation for quality work and they stand behind their work. They are expensive though. The Okna 500 is an excellent window though. Long term, you will best be served by going through route, but I feel your pain with the price. You might go back to them and say that if they can do it for $18K out of door, you'll sign the work order that day....just to see what they say :)

Dane - Website Editor - from 2022


Window Nation Pricing

We are looking to replace 17 double hung, two semi-circle (one over a single window, the other over a double), and a casement over the kitchen sink.

Window World quoted us 10,750 for their 4000 series. (They said the only difference between 4000 and 6000 is that 6000 has 3 panes of glass).

WindowNation quoted us 28,525 for the Greystone; 23,000 if we signed that day. When we mentioned that was too high, they proposed the Georgetown Series at 19,600. When we mentioned that was still too high, they said they could do it for 13,000, but not the double and semi-circle, and the casement was changed to a slider.

We signed with them and have until tomorrow to back out. I am concerned that the Georgetown frame/sash are not insulated. I am also concerned that I will not be able to reach the higher lock on the slider. Lastly, I don't like that I can't get all my windows done; having to pay 3,800 if I want the last bedroom with the double and semi-circle replaced. *These prices are with the buy 2 get 2 free!

The Renewal by Anderson price quote came in at 44,000! This is because of their patented material.

What would you do? What if we have them installed that don't have insulation? How can that be energy efficient? We plan on staying here another 10 years before selling and downsizing/retiring.

Thank you.

Donna - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Donna, I would cancel that order immediately and take a little breather here. That's the first step. The Vytex Georgetown series is more of an entry level window. That's a lot of money to pay for this quality of window.

The WW price quote I would toss, as well as the Renewal Quote. I sort of hate to say this, but I think you might want to start over with your bids.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Ultraview Windows Cost vs. Georgetown

Dane, I have 9 windows, quoted from Window Nation. Georgetown 8,000 or ultraview for 6,000. Give or take a few hundred.

I see you recommend a lot to look for cheaper quotes..cheaper isn't always better and I am not sure I trust Lowes or home Depot on this.. Family has done they and got very bad results and no follow up support.

Is the pricing ok? Is the quality ok. It seems good to me. Better than a home Depot. And I would go with ultraview just for cost.. They also have a warranty that does transfer owners which is nice.

Thoughts?

Dennis - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dennis, I think the Ultraview for $6,000 would be my call. This is a very solid mid range vinyl series and the price is good. I would agree to avoid HD and/or Lowes. This is assuming that your WN branch has a good to great reputation -- look the up on the web and make sure their reviews are solid. Then I think you can pull the trigger.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


Ultraview Costs Quote

Dane, I have two quotes for 3 replacement windows:

Window Nation: $2213
Model: Ultraview W:36" H:60" Location: Level 2, Bedroom

:ella 250 Series: $5102

The WN rep gave me a brochure for Soft-Lite Imperial Elite series so that is what I thought we were getting. However, the quote we received in the e-mail stated: Ultraview.

I’ve already been reading your blog about Soft-Lite Imperial LS being well made and so I thought this quote was ideal. Now I see we are getting Ultraview windows. Do you know anything about them? Are they well made? We plan to stay in the house for another 20 years.

We have some Champion windows in the house. I wonder if we should get a quote from them? Do you know anything about Champion?

We live in Cincinnati, Ohio. The house was built in 1992.

Thank you.

Gene - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

The UltraView is quite a good window, but it's not the Imperial LS in my opinion. It's better than the Pella 250 series in my opinion and it's less than half the price. I agree that the Imperial LS would be better, but the UltraView with their .07 air infiltration and DP45 (I believe my data is correct), is a nice performer. Probably worth the cost quote to be honest. If you are planning to be in the home for 20 more years, can you also get a quote on the Imperial LS, even if it's more expensive.

If you are in Ohio, you should be able to get a quote from Okna, Sunrise, and Soft-Lite reps. I would get bids from all of them as they are three of my favorites.

Should you get a bid on Champion? Absolutely! It can't hurt and it's always good to see additional products and prices.

So far, I think you have one good option. Now let's see if you can get one or two more...

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


Window Nation UltraWeld Cost

Dane, thank you so much for your reply. I appreciate it. It's very helpful. Before I received this response from you, we did get a quote for a Sunrise (I'm not sure which model), and it came in at $2650.00 for 3 double-hungs. We have moved forward with the UltraView series through WN since the price was similar to Sunrise. However, if we ever need to replace other windows, we will do our homework first and research window models and manufacturers PRIOR to getting quotes. In other words, we will pick the windows we want (i.e., higher-range, higher quality like the Soft-Lite Imperial LS), then find the reps to quote the job.

Who knew that windows were such a BIG DEAL?! (And so expensive!) I did not. But now, I know. I will be a lot more prepared if/when I ever have to go through this "experience" again.

Thank you again for your response. I read all your responses to others going through this experience. It was informative and helpful.

Much obliged!

Laura - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Laura, I am glad you found a solid option at a (decently) solid price. The cost of windows has been quite high during the past 6 months. Pretty crazy stuff, but way to get through all the chatter and find a quality product.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


UltraWeld Price Bid

Are the economy Polaris windows any good? I received a quote for them at $3450 but also a quote from Window Nation $9500. Which one would you recommend ?

Window Nation gave me the high bid. Another gentleman gave us the lower bid. He said he uses the economy Polaris series. I just don't know if those windows are any good. If I had to make my decision on $$$ it would be $3400 ones over those ooh $9500. But I don't want windows that won't last.

Tanya - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

The ValuSmart is a decent entry level option, I think that's the fairest statement I can make. Is it as good as the entry level Okna 400 series. It is not.

Here's my issue with your bids. They are SOOOO far apart in price.

Does the gentleman have good reviews online? A good reputation? Do you trust him to properly install, seal and caulk for your windows? If the answer is yes, I would go back and ask him what else he has access to in terms of products. Why can't he get the Polaris ThermalWeld. I can give my check of approval to this series for sure.

You also might want to get two more bids to see where they are in that huge price spectrum you currently have.

Ultra-View Windows Cost

12 double hungs from WN on the Ultra-View with a .07 ai rating and lead safe certified. They started out at $15,100 and went down to $6300.

Kevin - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kevin, the WN Prices seens good. Their initial price is sort of out-of-control, but whatever. The Wincore 7700 for $3960 is a smoking deal. I would probably go with this one myself.

Hello Dane: your website has been super helpful on reviewing various brands that we recently are looking into, we wanted to know your input on these quotes we recently received. We live in the Chicagoland suburbs and recently started the process of replacing all our builders' single hung & sliders. A total of 16 various sizes, (3) sliding, (10) double hung, (2) picture and (1) kitchen small DH. We've received a total of 4 quotes and wanted to know your thoughts, our home is 19 years old and we're planning on it being our forever home.

Window World 4000 Series $14767

Belle - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Belen, for a forever home my pick would probably be the Soft-Lite Elements. The Okna 500 is right behind it. Both companies get excellent reviews and they seem equal in that regard. The price spread between the Elements and the Okna is just about what I would expect. Personally, I would probably pony up for the Elements, which are more of less the best vinyl windows on the market.

Hey Dane, I received this quote from WN. 4 vinyl double hungs, custom fit, for around $5200 for the Belle Vue. They charged an extra $500 for EPA lead control and $200 to fix bad trim on one of them. Is this a fair offer? First quote I considered, but this was 55% of their original list price and I had to lock in.

Everything I see online shows windows are much cheaper. Avg $750 fully installed

Thank you so much for the suggestions Dane! Extremely helpful. I received another quote yesterday for one of the Soft-Lite models, and that came to $1700 a window. I'll look into your suggestions too. Thank you again!

Dylan - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor Answers]

$1700 each, man. Those custom colors can add 30% to the price. Always check their non-custom colors, just in case one of them works for you and you can cut significant cost from your project price.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mariam, not a bad bid for full frame installation. If the quote is for retrofit or insert installation, then it's too high.

Bellevue Quote

I live in Maryland and need to replace 18 windows. We received a quote on the Bellevue series. The bid started out at over $14,000, but by the time he left, the salesman had come down to $11,800.

Judy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor Answers]

Judy, the Bellevue is one of their lower end models and you can expect a .27 U-factor, a .30 SHGC, a .55 VT, and a .11 AI. Not bad numbers all in all. But $658 seems too high to me for this series. I think you need more bids to confirm this.

Comfort Guard Cost

Hi Dane, we're in the market for 14 double hung mid range vinyl windows.So far, we've collected two quotes. Each is for low-E, argon insulated windows. We plan to be in this house for another 10 years.

Comfort GuardSeries Cost: $9752

Slocomb Pro Tech 177 Series (local company): $5180

Tim - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Charlene, that's a huge price difference between the two. I'd say the Slocomb 177 is the better deal. Neither of these is a world beater, but your obvious option given your timeline in the home is the Slocomb over the WN.

Window Nation Vytex Potomac Costs

Wanting your opinion on these replacement window quotes. They are for 9 double hung and 2 bay windows. They will have laminated light oak interior with colonial grids, white exteriors. I live in Ford City PA 16226

Lowes Reliabilt $15,774

Vytex Potomac Cost $20,551

KHPP Meridia Costn $23,533

I would appreciate any help you could give me.

Thanks.

Chris - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chris, my first pick would be the Window Nation Vytex Potomac at $20,551. The KHPP Meridian at $23,533 would be my second pick. The Lowes Reliabilt just isn't a window that I would put in my home unless I was flipping or renting. The Potomac-HP is a very good vinyl option and probably close to on par with the Meridian -- I think it offers the best value. Assuming your WN branch has a solid reputation and online reviews, this is the route I'd be leaning myself.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


Window Nation Pricing

Hi, I am planning to replace 10 windows and it is 69" x 22" all same sizes.

I have an estimate from WN and one from Renewal by Anderson. WN started at a total of $11,000 with potomac Hp And Renewal by Anderson started at a total of $15,000 and no negotiations.

Did i get the good deal with window nation? They said it included everything, installation labor, trim, ect

Eunjoo - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Eunjoo, those bids sound high to me. I would continue to collect two or more bids to see how the others compare. I'm thinking $8K is your target price for a good vinyl window. This is just me extrapolating based on the WN bid.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Greystone Collection

Dear sir(s), I just purchased 11 fixed frames (57" H x 36" W), no grids for $7500 installed (opted for "flex timing" install to shave price down). this is a ground level sun room so easly install. current windows are removable single pane glass. i was told these were "middle grade" - would u provide view on that? i am in north-central Jersey. is this a fair price?

Thank you in advance.

Terry - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Terry, you are the second person to ask me about the Greystone Collection in the past month or so. I don't know much about this series, i.e. what it really is, but I was assuming its a mid range series. This definitely makes the most sense. The price you were quoted strikes me as pretty darn fair. If this were my project, I would ask point blank what "relabeled series" the Greystone is. You certainly deserve to know.

For this same price, you should be able to get an Ideal Platinum 3000 or Majestic series. Ideal is based on NJ and has great windows at very fair prices...but it sounds like you've already purchased?

Window Nation Prices :: Harbor Light Series


-- Estimated Windows Nation Harbor Light Price: $550 to $750 installed --
(assumes medium sized opening and normal installation) *


Harbor Light Windows Cost

Hi Dane,

Price is $10,500 for 16 full replacement double hung Harbor Light with our choice of color for inside and outside facing views (ex white on the inside and a light tan to match our home's exterior).

1 slider for laundry room

3 double hung 32x48

12 double hung 36x48

Is this a good deal? Are Harbor Light good quality? Do you feel WN stands by there warranty of we'll fix anything at anytime at zero cost?

Our only reference is an old Pella quote (we got 50% off due to family friend connection) for 11 windows, different indoor facing and outdoor facing colors was $20,000, so Window Nation seems to have comparable quality, superior warranty for less than half the cost considering we added 5 additional windows with WN. Is our thinking sound?

Thanks so much for your expert opinion.

Martha - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

The Harbor Light is the entry level product from Great Lakes. I think at $656 each, you should probably be getting a little better quality series. I'm not saying this is a bad bid, but I do think you should probably get a couple more bids to compare to this one.

I will send you my list to peruse.

Tom - Site Editor - from 2020


Window Nation Prices

Good day, I was just on your webpage and was looking over your reviews. My question is this....I was recently quoted $10,200 for 14 windows (Harbor Light) from WW. Is this a good deal? Double hung, Low-E with half screens.

I also received a quote for 18 windows for $16,700 from Okna. I didn't want to spend that much but I'm seeing you state that Okna is a good window. Is the Harbor Light from WN a good option and is the price a good deal.

I was awaiting a quote from Window World, but after reading your reviews as well as other websites, I'm going to cancel that appointment.

Thanks for any advice.

Aliza - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Aliza, The Harbor Light is the entry level vinyl series from Great Lakes and resold by WN. So, no, I don't consider that to be a very good price for an entry level option. The $16.7K for the Okna is just too high to pay for that product.

It sounds like your project might involve some steps that are elevating that cost. I'm going to send you a list of my good and great brands and series for you to check out. I think you would be well served to get a few more quotes to compare to the two you already have.

Window Nation Comfort Smart Windows

Hi Dane, we received a quote from WN. We are looking to replace the original windows in a 24 year old house 87 in total. YIKES!! They quoted us $137,514.00 for Comfort Smart windows with Rubbed bronze color(Bronze on the outside and white on the inside)

The quote is for 2 pane/Low E and Argon. I appreciate any input. I have been reading that Anderson Windows are the best. We don’t need top of the line just a good solid mid range series. After reading reviews it looks like Vinyl will be a maintenance free option.

Thanks again.

Karen - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Karen, yikes is right! That's one of the bigger jobs I've heard about in a while. I would spend some time and get 5 or 6 quality bids and pit them against one another. I think you are going to see some serious variations in the bids you receive.

I would start by looking at my good and great list. Not all will have dealers in your zip code, but a google search should bring up local companies who carry the brand. Do this for each brand you are interested in searching. Call them up, get the bid, and compare. Feel free to shoot your bids over to me and I'm more than happy to provide you with my take on what you have.

Ultravision Windows Cost Quote

Hi Dane, I just received the quote for 10 Ultravisions for $7880. They can’t install until July. Should I wait until for better pricing? Thanks.

Nette - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor Answers]

Nette, that's a decent price, but nothing great. Get a couple more bids and see what other companies in your area are charging for the same work.

Here are other brands and possibilities.

Dane - Website Editor - from 2022


Ultravision Price Quote

Is $8498 for ten windows a reasonable, ballpark quote for the following:

Model: Ultravision W:34" H:60" Quantity: 10 • Style: Double Hung • Grids: None • Screen: Half

Screen • Color: Interior White/Exterior White

The estimates on this page indicate a range of $500 - $650, which means I'm probably being overcharged.

Please help.

Thomas- Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Thomas, while the Ultravision is quite nice, I would say you are paying at the upper range I what I would say this is worth. One note here: COVID and the demand it has had on the home improvement industry, coupled with supply chain issues, has really pushed up prices. I’m hoping that this begins to dissipate as I really don’t like this price squeeze has for consumers. However, I don’t realistically see this happening in the next three to four months in the United States.

Here is my list of good and great options.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021


Window Nation vs Harvey

Hello, I have a fresh quote from WN for the Harvey Ultravision model window. I have 18 double hung and 4 basement windows. The total quote out the door is $19,002.00. Is that good? They started with a slightly better option but that was over 22k

Scott - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Scott, so I took a look at the Ultravision and it looks quite nice. In all honesty, I don't know which series this is, but the .07 air infiltration and DP40 are both good numbers.

Whether 22 windows at $19K is good...I'm not going to say yes or no. The problem is COVID has put prices out of whack. I think you need to get more estimates before you will know whether the price quote you have is fair or not.

If you can't find anyone willing to sell to you, you will probably have to go the HD, Lowes, Dixieline, etc. route. Mostly, these big box stores sell lower end or mid range windows. However, a decent mid range vinyl series with competent installation is not the worst option. I would suggest speaking with Home Depot windows department and asking the question, if you were putting a series in your home that you sell here, what would it be if money were no object? I like this question because they are sort of putting their money where their mouth is -- not totally, but you get the idea.

Here is my recommended list of brands and options.

Window Nation Patio Door Cost Quote

Hi , I just got a quote from WN for silding patio door 70 ×, 80 for the price of $3200 is reasonable!

Eric - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Well, that's not unreasonable. Or I should say that's in the range of what I'm seeing lately. You definitely want to compare this to some other bids -- patio doors at that size can vary GREATLY in price. Not all the time, but I've been shocked in the past.

I have a quote from WN on 10 windows and a front door. The quote is for $11,000 exactly. What is the average cost for window nation windows any way?

Gerald - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gerald, not the cheapest cost quote I've ever seen. I would think you could do better than this myself. I would continue to collect quotes myself to see if you can get something cheaper...

Window Nation Pricing

Got a presentation from WN on 22 double hungs and 2 fixed frame pictures. $22.5k. Having second thoughts. In the 3 days cancel part. Am I paying too much?

Also no idea if the grand view was the right choice. Was the only one presented.

Thanks so much!

Jessica - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor Answers]

Jessica, I think this is too much on the face of it. New construction installation can be expensive, but I still wonder if this is too much. The Grandview is a nice option, but in looking at your work order and the sizes of the windows, I think you might be able to do better.

Since you are in New Jersey, I would recommend that you get a bid from an Ideal dealer on the Majestic series or their Platinum 3000 series. These are better series than the Grandview and I think the bid could come in lower.

I always advise taking it slow and making sure you get the best bid at the best price possible. There is also probably an Okna dealer in your area. Their Okna 400 Series and 500 Series are both very good options.
