Greetings!

I am looking to replace all the windows in my house with OKNA iNSULTEC 500 Deluxe double hung windows.

I have received two quotes. Both seem reputable companies. I live in southeast PA. $1500 difference in price.


Am I getting identical OKNA windows from both companies? Can there be any differences between the windows that a novice can't visualize? ie vinyl thickness? stronger meeting rail? thicker balance system? The higher bid quote company is telling me this is a possibility.

Is there value in a lifetime installation warranty that is transferable?

There will be no difference in the product. The only difference could be in installation consumables and application and/or warranty protections.

+1. Same product as long as apples to apples options are applied. As WoW alluded to though, installation and the company standing behind it are very important factors. A better installation and superior service after the sale do have value. If those items actually seem better from the company with the lower bid, well then you have a win all the way around.

If the 500DX has the same options it is the same window.

I would suggest looking at the 800DX it is our favorite.

The new okna 600 series will have reinforcement and most of the features the 800 has from what i was told. Its a very high end window and priced very well.
Does Okna offer laminated glass?

Composite reinforcement is only available in the Okna 600 and 800 series, not the 500 or 400.
