Plygem 5100 vs. Okna 500 series

#1 Post by patrickwil1 »

Good morning - we're looking to replace 10-windows at our residence in Pennsylvania (Poconos area). I've received two quotes that came around the same price (materials & labor). Given that, what would be the best value for our money: the Plygem 5100 series or the Okna 500 series? The warranty on the Okna appears better...

Thank you

Well, unless the Okna dealer has some other red flag, this is about as easy a choice as one could find. The Okna is much better by every metric. Yes it's their entry level window, but still a great performer and far from "entry level" as windows go.
Odd that the pricing is close, these aren't products that compete in the same price tier in most cases.

Im not big on a warranty. Either a window is built well or its not. What were the quotes with each brand? Any grids?
