Window Nation Prices

Discover Window Nation prices and costs (updated in 2024) on their numerous replacement vinyl windows and options. The company sells two main window brands - Soft-Lite and Vytex Windows.

However, they tend to sell quite a few different window series; these include the following: the Imperial LS, Potomac HP, Addison, UltraView, BelleVue, Ultravision, Paramount, Grandview, and Georgetown. Please note that I listed them from best to least best.

Window Nation price points tend to be a bit high in my opinion. The company does tend to get knocked for their somewhat aggressive sakes tactics. However, they generally get mostly positive consumer reviews on their installation and customer service. However,

Window Nation Prices | Grandview Series

The Grandview is one of Vytex's mid range vinyl windows, but ought to be considered more an of upper end vinyl window.

Window Nation Prices

Hello. We want to replace 7 windows in our townhome. A sales person from WN quoted us $7000 dollars for their Grandview double hang, half screen. Seems to us the price of $1000 each is too expensive. What your thoughts on getting Pella windows from Lowe's and get it installed by their contractors. I went to the Lowes to ask about installation and they could not give me a base price, but said 1400 could be the highest they can charge for 1 window. Seems very expensive. What are your thoughts? We want energy efficiency for the best price we can get. We are in Maryland.

Thank you, Bob.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bob, $1K per window is quite expensive in my opinion, but it seems to be the going rate for many windows in 2022. I don't think Lowes is the call myself because I find the big box stores' subcontractors are spotty. I'd prefer to be able to google a specific company and see their cumulative reviews and ratings from potentially hundreds of past customers. I'd suggest getting a few more bids from local companies and keeping the WN bid as a maybe.

Window Nation Prices

Hi Tom, I love the content on your site. It is super helpful. Do you have an opinion on Bellvue windows (made by Alside) sold by Window Nation -versus- the Nirvana (from Soft-Lite's Classic Plus Line) sold by Zen Windows -versus- the Berkshire Elite sold by Window Universe?

For 25 windows of various sizes we were quoted around $21k for the Bellvue, $18.5k for Nirvana and $21k for the Revere Berkshire Elite. The quotes are based on 22 double hung, one triple casement, one picture window and one slider. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts you have on those product lines. Thank you again for sharing the content and your incites.

Jade - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

This is an easy answer. The $18.5k for the Soft-Lite's Classic Plus Line is the best window at the cheapest price. This is the choice I would make without question. Zen Windows tends to be a fair price option for many American consumers if they have a branch that serves your area.

WIndow Nation Cost Reviews

I am hoping you can help. We have been working with WN for 11 windows. We installed Great Lakes comfort Smart and have had issues with the sashes being warped. After a year of getting replacements with the same issue, WN has agreed to replace all of our windows with a another brand.

They offered Grandview by Vytex and Envision by Softlite. On paper the Grandview is slightly more efficient of the two, we also like the exterior look (Envision has beveled exterior edge). I don?t want to make the same mistake 2x any guidance?


Chris - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chris, I think they are pretty comparable windows myself. I like the soft-Lite brand more than the Vytex, but I think these are apples to apples.

Window Nations Price Reviews

Hello Tom, I just stumbled across your website and thank you considerably for aggregating all this information. Window Nation in Cleveland, Ohio just provided a quote for 8 Imperial LS Windows, which I understand to be decent quality, but I was put off by the "must buy now" sales tactics of an otherwise amicable salesman. After doing some research the next day, some of the things he mentioned were outright lies designed to prevent us from doing any research of our own.

In the end, we were quoted the following, but the salesman refused to break down any of the costs, preferring to just list a bunch of "package deal" numbers out on a sheet of notebook paper. Having no experience with window pricing, I'd just like to know if it's this is a fair price. I noticed the sales rep never took any actual measurements of the windows as he said the carpenter would do that part, but the sizes he quoted are somewhat overstated.

I sincerely thank you in advance! Cheers!

QTY (1): Imperial LS SIZE: 32"X50" (Actual Size 28"x45")
QTY (2): Imperial LS SIZE: 32"X50" (Actual Size 28"x45")
QTY (5): Imperial LS SIZE: 32"X50" (Actual Size is 28"x38")

UPDATE: Additional details I forgot to add include. Our house was built 1919, so there is an up-charge for lead abatement and cleanup. Price includes white aluminum trim on exterior of house. Salesman mentioned, since we are simply swapping old vinyl replacement windows with new ones, that this installation is a simple drop-in replacement, versus needing a bunch of customization for install.

[Site Editor's Answer]

So...I would say this is a decent price...but I don't think you should take it until you've had at least two more bids. You just never know how it's going to compare with other bids. You're in a good area to reach out to find other credible products and companies.

Window Nation Prices vs. Marvin Infinity

My name is Steve and I am getting a bid on 14 WN triple pane pocket windows with full screens and tempered glass in about half. The cost is $910 installed per window for their high end Imperial LS windows. They also pitched me the Vytex Grandview, which was $770 per. I did also get a quote from Marvin windows, but they were $1500 per for their Infinity fiberglass.

Steve - Homeowner - from 2017

Editor's Reply

Steve, the bids sound a bit high to me, although tempered glass typically adds about $100 to the cost of each window, but you indicated it was only half that needed this glass. Window Nation carries good brands like the soft-Lite Imperial LS and Vytex Grandview, but they aren't usually the cheapest out there.

I would try to get an actual Soft-Lite dealer out there and see what they would charge for the Soft-Lite Classic or Pro model. Again, I like both the bids you have, but not the price tag. I think you need a couple more bids to round out your offerings.

The Infinity from Marvin is a good option, but it's not $1500 installed in my opinion.

Window Nation Prices

First off I really want to thank you for reading my email. I am just like every other home owner out there, trying to understand and justify the extremely high cost of getting new windows for my home. I received a quote from Window Nation for a set of their recommended windows, the Imperial Pros. Window Nation was my first estimate at getting windows. I liked the product that they were selling, it seemed very nice but the cost is outstanding at $25,500. I signed the contract at the time of the sales pitch but I have until March 10th to cancel.

I have spend many hours searching the internet to find out what I could to see if I am making the best decision for my family and that is where I came across your very informative website. Below I have a couple questions and an order summary from my contract. I would appreciate it SO MUCH if you could let me know your opinion of if I am getting a good deal.

My gut tells me no, but it is very difficult for me to know because the contract that they provided does not give a breakdown of cost for each item. I (over?) estimated the large items to try to get a breakdown of costs per double hung. Also, I have Thompson Creek coming this afternoon to give me an estimate for their product. Do you have thoughts on that company, their windows?

Here is the WindowsNations order at $25,500.

I have twice requested an itemized breakdown of the costs. If I do not receive, I feel I have to cancel. I forgot the warranty part of your question. The warranty comes from the manufacturer so WN defers to them on that point. Soft-Lite should replace any part for free that is covered under the warranty. Warranties are tricky though.

Is WN going to run right out at year 8 and take a look at your window? What do they charge to do the work? They're not doing it for free. This is one place where buying a quality product is key because the cost to replace defective parts even under warranty can be pricey and a pain in the arse. I would definitely ask them to run you through how they handle warranty issues.

I estimated my patio door to cost $3.5k. They upsold me to get laminated glass. I do not know if that is a wise investment, but I think that is why that costs so much. I estimated my half moon over fireplace to be $2k?

I estimated my foyer picture window(s) to be 3k - large box with half moon on top. That leaves 17 double hungs and 3 small basement sliders to be 17k. That averages at $850 per window which is higher than internet articles say I should be paying even on the high side. I thought my estimates are over estimates and that still leaves me paying too much. I don't know where I am going wrong.

Finally, Soft-lite has this on their website: What does your warranty cover? Our window warranty covers any confirmed manufacturing defect. A replacement part will be furnished at no cost to you. Our warranty excludes labor and is transferable. See the warranty for more details. I don't have anything from Window Nation that says that labor or shipping is included in my warranty. They say they will give me a pamphlet, but that is not a signed part of the contract. Is that binding? Do you have thoughts on that?

Matt - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Matt, I would tend to agree with you that that bid sounds high. But I don?t know all the project details so it's impossible for me to say that with any real certainty. I definitely think you need a couple more bids to confirm.

Window Nation has a good reputation in general, although I have seen bids that seems high to me. I don't think this is their best price and I think you can use some additional bids to start working down the price bid for them to find the lowest number they?ll go.

I don't hear much about Thompson Creek, but I feel like I've hear they use an aggressive pitch and don?t always offer the most competitive pricing. Plus, I know nothing about their windows. I'd love to get some feedback from you on what you think about them.

I would be interested to see if you could get a bid from a local company that sells some quality mid range vinyl windows to get a better fix on price. Perhaps Vytex (I know Window Nation often pitches this as their drop window), Wincore or Zen (which is a franchise that resells mid range Soft-Lite windows, although they have their own labels).

For instance, assuming no big installation requirements, I would think you could get the top end Wincore 7700 for something in the $17K to $18K range. I think this is what you should be shooting for.

Bottom line, take your time and get some more bids to see what the real market value of your project is?

Tom - HWRC Editor - from 2017

[Matt's Answer]

Hi Tom, Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly. That was so nice of you!! We had Thompson Creek out and were really happy with their product, warranty, and pricing. They came in at cheaper than Window Nation, had a much better and more thorough warranty, and we really liked their product. They are local here and do all their own installs. There are no subcontractors.

Also there is no fine print in their warranty like I found with Window Nation. Window Nation has in their fine print about requirements for preventative maintenance which are in separate brochures and damage must be reported within 10 days. To me, that is a little absurd.

I ended up getting 26 windows and a patio door for 26,400 from Thompson Creek.

Window Nation was 25 windows and a sliding glass door for 25,600.

The Thompson Creek rep was not pushy and presented everything as transparent as possible. We saw all the numbers, it was like working directly in an Excel spreadsheet. To me, that made a lot of difference. There were other differences where I could see that the Window Nation rep was trying to hide certain things and divert attention away from specifics like the subs who install, requirements of the warranty, etc.

BTW, Thompson Creek advertises their windows at U = .28, S=.29 and air leakage at .06. These numbers are just a tad worse than the Imperial LS. Thompson Creek does not use foam in the window frame which I'm not quite sure is a good or bad thing, but they get these numbers without that.

I cant thank you enough for writing me back so quickly. Have a great one.

Window Nations Prices | Imperial LS Series

The Imperial LS uses triple weatherstripping, has a kevlar reinforcement as opposed to an aliminum version with the Pro and an air infiltration (AI) rating of .02 as opposed to .07 on the Pro. (Both of these AI numbers are very respectable.) The Imperial LS is an excellent series, but it is not cheap either.
