Manufactured on German equipment made by Sturtz, they have a reputation for consistently good manufacturing quality. For more information, check out our Polaris windows reviews.
Polaris ValuSmart Windows
The ValuSmart is a fairly simple window. It has clean lines and a tilt in sash for easy cleaning. Like many low-end windows, it doesn't have a lot of chambers in the frame and the wall thickness is moderate (0.70.) The U-value of 0.33 is decent and the AI is 0.06, which is very good for the price. It is often compared to a Simonton Assure Series.
Polaris ThermalWeld Windows
Polaris makes the ThermalWeld, with a U-value of 0.29 and an SHGC of 0.28. It is similar in features and ratings to a Soft-Lite Barrington, although the frame is thicker. See all Soft-Lite window prices.
Polaris ThermalWeld Costs
I'm replacing 6 36" x 72" double hung windows with tempered glass, as well as two mid sized sliders in my bedroom. Two bids so far.
Polaris UltraWeld Windows Prices
The UltraWeld is the top offering from Polaris and is considered on of the best vinyl replacement windows available. It gets good reviews for its design and engineering. The UltraWeld has an extra strength outer wall and an optional foam filling. The U-value is around 0.29 and the AI is a very impressive 0.01. There are plenty of nice features, including the Ultracept, a stainless steel spacer. In addition to the double hung, it comes as a casement, bay, and bow. It can be compared to the Sunrise Elements, but has better air infiltration numbers.
Polaris Ultraweld Price Quote
I have the following quote from a Zen dealer on the Polaris Ultraweld. It seems like a good deal, but I can't say for sure. Would love some guidance.

Kendra, $550 per casement for the Polaris Ultraweld is a very good price. $460 on the picture window is also quite good. All in all, I think that's a very fair price!
Polaris Windows Warranty
The Polaris window warranty is a Limited Lifetime Warranty that covers the frame, sash and components against manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the original owner. The warranty does not include an accidental glass breakage provision, although it does include a 30 year provision on the insulated glass unit. In case of a warranty claim, the homeowner is responsible for the cost to remove the window and to reinstall the replacement window (or the manufactured repaired window). The warranty is transferrable for 30 years from the original date of purchase. Consumers should always read the warranty for themselves to see the exclusions that always are laid out in great detail.
