Affinity Windows Reviews
Read Affinity windows reviews from contractors, installers and homeowners and see what they have to say about their Energex, Advantage and Elite window models and prices.
Affinity Elite Review
Affinity Windows sell a version of the Elite window, these windows are very visually appealing, they come with great performance ratings and I would place them in the top three for higher grade windows. Some companies' offer Elite and others offer the Energex, while Energex is alright, the Elite is definitely a nicer option. Deceunick are known for their vinyl extrusions, which are then sold to various window companies, one of these is the Elite window and I would recommend them without hesitation.
Affinity Elite or Okna 500
I've had the opportunity of working with the Affinity Elite and the Okna 500 windows and this is what I have found. When it comes to air leaking rates, the Okna 500 wins hands down. With a .02 leakage rate, the Affinity is unable to beat it. That's pretty impressive considering that the 500 isn't the top Okna window. Also it's good to note that this window can handle winds of just over 170 miles per hour.
Personally I like the Affinity window, but there aren't many people that will say it's a better option over Okna windows. Most dealers will offer Affinity to customers that feel the Okna comes with a heavy price tag and want something a little cheaper. What I can't understand is why the Affinity is compared to the Okna 500 in the first place. The Affinity is a top of the range window, which the Okna 500 is the middle of the range. That being said the middle of the range Okna still offers fantastic U-Factor and air infiltration ratings.
Replacement Window Advice
I am in the process of obtaining quotes to replace ten windows. I have already received a large number of quotes from Affinity, Ideal, Majestic, BF Rich and Castle. The problem comes in that I am not sure which is the better option, while I really like the Affinity, I haven't managed to find much information on them which has left me a little confused. Any advice is appreciated.
The Affinity is a good window in my opinion. They have three options available, Elite is their top end window, Advantage is the middle of the range and the Element is their low end choice. Each window is the same in terms of design and sash extrusion. I have extensive experience with the Advantage and Elite windows from Affinity and have found them both to be great in terms of value and often exceeds any homeowner's expectations. These windows come with foam filled frames, Ashland hardware, super spaced glazing, meeting rail reinforcement and more.
