DC area: Vytex Williamsburg vs. MI Sunrise 4500 vs. Okna 500/600/800

#1 Post by anne3000 »

Good afternoon! Looking for input on double-hung vinyl replacement windows. I’m in the D.C. area and got bids for 20 windows from three local outfits:
– American Windows & Siding of VA offering Vytex Williamsburg at $13,300.
– American Home Contractors offering MI Sunrise V4500 at $16,751.
– Windows on Washington (I know they’re real popular on this site) offering Okna 500 at $18,954. (Alternatively, the 600 at $19,754 or the 800 at $20,554).

What’s important to me is fixing the drafts and making sure the product (and the manufacturer) are built to last. If it looks nice, that’s a bonus.

Thoughts? (Apologies if this exact question has been posed here before!)

At the risk of appearing to be a "homer" for Windows on Washington, they are the easy choice here. Okna is a premier performer and WoW is nationally recognized and respected for excellence.

That window WILL fix any drafts, it IS built to last, but more importantly you know that you will get the quality of installation needed for the window to perform as designed today and down the road.

Lastly, the Okna and Sunrise pricing is reasonable and lower than what I see in my own market.
The upper tier Vytex units are pretty good, but I wouldn't recommend that specific offering at that alarming price.

@homesealed -- Thanks! I appreciate the input. With the Okna, any thoughts on 500 vs. 600 vs. 800?

The 500 is a nice window especially when offered at a discount, but for that fairly small price delta, it's hard to argue with the 800 which is the cream of the crop. That would be my choice.

The 600 is also nice, but again, talking $800 on a $20k ticket, I'd go with the best of the best in the 800.
