Cascade Windows Prices
Explore Cascade windows prices and reviews from past customers. Cascade and LbL Windows, both based in Oregon, merged companies back in 2009. The newly formed company now offers two manufacturing plants, one in Spokane and other in Salt Lake City. The merger seems to have been a strategic move by Cascade to take advantage of the vinyl replacement markets that LbL had established throughout much of the Northwest. For additional replacement window pricing, see our cost estimator page.

How Much Do Cascade Windows Cost
Hi Tom, I've been reading the advice you provide, and I'm hoping you can help as I've gotten two quotes that are wildly different. One is from Home Depot for Simonton windows, while the other is for Cascade brand windows from a local contractor. They are for the same 15 windows, and both include exterior composite trim replacement and all labor. So other than the brand of the windows it's apples to apples.
Home Depot has quoted $27,000 for the Simonton, while the local contractor has quoted $12,000 for the Cascade. What I find interesting about the HD quote is that it's not itemized, they just list the windows and show a grand total that doesn't break out the cost of the windows and labor like the quote of the local contractor does.
So my question is whether Simonton windows are that great, or are Cascade that bad, to warrant such an incredible disparity in the quotes? The one main difference is that HD provides a "double lifetime warranty", basically meaning it can be transferred to the next owner if we ever sell the home. Cascade's warranty is lifetime but not transferrable. I'm suspicious of the lack of transparency in the HD total-only quote. Do you have any advice

[Site Editor's Answer]
Dave, I would say that the Simonton quote is really high. I?ve noticed HD quotes have really escalated in the past few years. It?s quite something.
Cascade doesn?t have the best reputation in my opinion, they are more of builder grade window for the most part. Again, in my estimation. I would consider the Cascade quote if you don?t intend to be in the house for more than say 7 to 10 years.
As sort of a proof, if you google, ?cascade windows reviews? ? they get a 2.9 stars out of 5 on 31 google reviews. Not exactly stellar.
Interestingly, last year Cascade acquired Amerimax windows, which I?ve always recommended. If your contractor could get hold of the Craftsman Portrait or Aristocrat series, then I could get behind this move. I would think he could get access to them, but who knows.
If this were my project, I would continue on my search. I will include my list of good and great windows below.
