Polaris Windows Prices

Polaris windows prices range from around $400 installed for the ValuSmart to $700 installed for the UltraWeld. Polaris gets good marks on their UltraWeld series, which is their top of the line window. They get medium marks on their ThermalWeld and just OK marks on their entry level ValuSmart window. Their products get particularly good air infiltration numbers and their production quality and consistency is very good. The factory uses high quality German equipment made by Sturtz and gets good to great marks from contractors and installers for consistency in manufacturing quality.

Polaris ValuSmart Window Cost

The ValuSmart is the entry level window that is a relatively plain window with pretty slim lines and a tilt in sash feature. The vinyl extrusions have a wall thickness of .070 (middle of the road) and don't have many chambers in order to cut down on cost (typical for an entry level product). They do have a decent U-value at around .33 and an Air Infiltration rate of 0.06. This window is pretty comparable to the Simonton 5500, although it is certainly not as good as the next two models below. See more Simonton windows prices.

Polaris ThermalWeld Windows

ThermalWeld is a decent window that beats out many mid grade manufacturer's mid range window series. It is not as sturdy as the UltraWeld. It has respectable performance numbers (U factor of 0.29 and an SHGC of .28) and is probably comparable to the more Soft-Lite Barrington, although with a thicker frame. This series carries the same warranty as the Ultraweld. See more Soft-Lite windows prices.

Polaris 6000 Thermalweld Plus Cost Bid

Tom, I am replacing 21 double hung windows in my home and am looking for your advice on which way I should go. My estimates are quite a large range so I need help in deciding which one is best.

Vytex Grandview (Window Nation) - $13,067

Okna 500DX (Mr. Window) - $14,478

Alside Mezzo (Local company) - $11,550

Polaris 6000 Thermalweld Plus (Local company) - $10,885

Polaris Unishield Plus (Universal Windows Direct) - $16,800

As you can see there is a $6000 difference between all of them. As a background we are going to be living in the home for at least 10 years.

Which is the best estimate to go with?

Thank you very much for your time, I'm in Indiana.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Steve, thanks for the question. If this were your forever home, I'd say go with the Okna 500DX. This window almost can't be beat. But it doesn't exactly sound like this.

I think your best value for living in the home for 10 years is the Polaris 6000 Thermalweld Plus for $10,885. Quite a good window at a very good price. Now, this is premised on the idea that the local company doing the work has good reviews and a solid reputation. If this is the case, this would probably be the road I would look at first.

The Okna 500DX is the better window, but I'm not quite sure you'll see the extra savings over that timeline. A very solid window in the Polaris 6000 Thermalweld Plus, coupled with quality installation, should have your back for the next 10 years easy.

Polaris UltraWeld Price

The Polaris UltraWeld is a well built window unit in both its design and energy efficiency. The company uses a stronger outer wall for the UltraWeld (with an optional foam fill in the main chamber) and has a U-value of around 0.29 and a very impressive AI number (.01). Compare this to a top performer like the Sunrise Restorations with a .28 U-value and an AI of .04 and you see why pros give this window its due. It has a number of very nice features and upgrades, including a stainless steel spacer called the UltraCept. The window gets great reviews for both their casements as well as their bays and bows (which come with an interior composite wood that can be stained or painted). See more Sunrise windows prices.

Polaris Windows Warranty

Polaris windows carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturer defects on the mainframe and sash. The company agrees to repair the product, although this does not extend to screen damage or glass breakage. The warranty extends to the insulated glass units for a period of 30 years. IGU units that have mini-blinds are warrantied for a period of 10 years. The company does not cover the labor or installation costs involved in swapping out defective windows. The warranty is transferrable to another owner for a period of 30 years, although it is unclear whether the Polaris replacement window warranty carries the same terms for the second owner. Always read the warranty in full to make sure that the terms apply to the specific product that you are purchasing.
