Simonton versus Castle Vinyl Windows

#1 Post by pogomon59 » Mon Nov 07, 2016 8:36 pm

Does anyone have an opinion on the quality differences between Simonton 6100 VantagePointe and Castle vinyl windows? We live in Maryland and will be moving in about 3 years. My wife has quotes for both, but not sure which window company to choose. Any other suggestions on a mid grade window company to look at?

Not a fan of either of Home Depot or Castle Windows. Questionable installations by low paid subs and I've yet to see quality exterior capping by either of them. The Castle privately labeled Soft-Lite Barrington window is better than the 6100.

If you are in Maryland, Windows on Washington may serve your area. You need to give them a call if they do. Excellent company, prolific contributor to this site and others. I can tell you that they superior performing products, and better value as well. Even if they don't serve your area, they may be able to offer a better referral than what you have seen so far.
