Okna 500 vs 600 series

#1 Post by caroleK »

I have estimates for 28 windows of around 19 k for the 500 series and from another vendor for 23 k for the 600 series. Is the 600 worth the extra cost?

Same vendor? How do the two vendors compare?

+1.

Is the 600 better, yes.

Is the price difference worth it? ... that gets a little tougher based only on product. Are options the same (ie: DX, non-DX, etc)?

If these are two different companies, I'd look a bit closer at each company to help decide as well.

The 600 quote sounds like a nice price, the 500 may be running a bit lower than most, so keep that in mind as well for better or worse.

I would suggest getting quotes for both windows from both installers. Then pick the window-installer combo you like best.

This is good advice, although there is a fair chance that each installer does not have access to the line that the other offers. Most dealer-direct manufacturers operate in a similar method where each dealer in a given market has one or two models available that the other(s) do not. Its not always the case, but often enough.
