Wincore vs. Simonton

I am curious if anyone has any opinions on Wincore windows and how they compare to Simonton Windows?

Overall I would say they are both good windows with decent performance numbers. Wincore is not considered a top performer, but Simonton has a good reputation and is visually appealing. For the same price there are better windows out there, but either one of these are good too.

I have used Wincore on a number of projects and all the customers were thrilled, there were no warranty issues to complain about. The problem is that they are available from Sears, who are known for their higher prices. I would shop around and then choose according to your personal preference and budget.

Wincore vs. Vytex

I just received two quotes for window replacements. The first is for Wincore 5400 windows, which is eighty percent higher in price than the other quote, which is for the Vytex Fortis windows. I have seen samples for both and I can’t see much difference between the two, other than the price. I am looking for mid-range windows that offer quality so any advice on these two windows is appreciated.

I would go with the Vytex Fortis if I were you. They offer good performance numbers and are overall a good design. I wouldn’t compare them to the Wincore. The Vytex come with a foam filled frame, good spacers and composite reinforcements. Just a better overall window in my opinion.

Wincore, Simonton or Pella

I am in the process of replacing eleven double hung windows in my home. The first sales man said that their windows are about $1,000 each, I ushered him out the door. I was amazed because his offer was the Soft-Lite windows, which I believe are a good window. Since then I had some other contractors come in and they have quoted on the Wincore 5400 and the Simonton 5050.

The Wincore estimate came in at $4,000, while the Simonton 5050 estimate is $3,800. I also got quotes on the Pella 350s at $5,900, Window World at $3,500 and Window Depot at $3,400. I think I’m going to choose the Wincore 5400’s and if I am making the wrong decision, any input would be appreciated.

If I were to rank them, I’d say the Soft-Lites are the best, but not at $1K each – that is ridiculous. The Pella 350 is actually not bad (vinyl Pella windows in the past have been horrible, but they have made some strides as of late) low end Simonton is just ok, the Wincore 5400 is decent, the Window World estimate should be tossed and I don’t know anything about window Depot.
