Wincore vs Simonton

I am curious if anyone has any opinions on Wincore windows and how they compare to Simonton models and series.

Wincore was started by ex-Simonton employees so their products are relatively similar. 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 price you mentioned, you can find a host of quality windows that will offer better performance numbers and a more solid construction.

I have used Wincore on a number of protects 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 got two quotes for window replacements. The first is for the Wincore 5400, which is eighty percent higher in price than the other quote, which is 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. The prices I received are only for two windows and I was wondering if the price increase on the Wincore is installation more than anything else

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.

Wincore, Simonton or Pella

I am in the process of replacing eleven double hung windows in my home. The sales man from Birmingham AI arrives and once he said that their windows are about $1,000 each, I ushered him out the door. I was amazed that Soft-Lite windows, were so expensive. 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 Pella 350 windows at $5,900, Window World at $3,500 and Window Depot at $3,400. Right now I'm leaning towards the Wincore 5400 series and if I am making the wrong decision, any input would be appreciated.

Between the Wincore and the Simonton, I would say the Simonton is a better option. Simonton is a good manufacturer that offers a quality product. When it comes to warranty you want a company that will protect you on the window and installation, so be sure you have a good warranty in place for whichever window you decide to go with.
