Paradigm Vinyl Windows? Are they quality? Is my quote fair?

#1 Post by GIBBY » Thu Dec 15, 2016 8:17 pm

I know people have posted about Paradigm, but its been four years since the last post and I understand they were bought by another company.
I have a quote for Paradigm premium windows, double-glazed, full screen, Lowe-annealed, argon gas, exterior paint to match, windows to be sealed with flashing tape, foam insulation and caulk.
First question: are these windows quality and how long will they last before having to be replaced again?
Second Question: The price I was quoted for 7 windows (including demo and trash of the old ones ) was $5,500. Is that a fair price?
Thanks in advance!

In reverse order, price doesn't look bad but its impossible to comment without knowing the details on the installation or specified product/consumables.

On the materials front, they were ahead of the curve about 10 years ago but I don't think there have been many innovations to that product in a good long while.

+1. IMO, you could probably find a superior performer for your budget.
