Gilkey Windows Costs And Quotes
Explore Gilkey window costs and prices from past homeowners and consumers on their vinyl and fiberglass window models. Gilkey Windows manufacturer both vinyl and fiberglass windows in their six different locations; with two factories in Ohio, Illinois, and Kentucky. The company offers their own installation, which sometimes can mean slightly higher prices, but it should be worth it because the installers only put in Gilkey windows and understand the intricacies behind their own windows.
You don't hear much about Gilkey, they tend to be concentrated in these three states, but I tend to like the quality of their products and service. They aren't going to be considered a top tier company like Sunrise or Okna windows, but they make a good mid range vinyl window, which is really more or less fine for the majority of homeowners out there. Gilkey windows aren't available out west but if they were I would definitely get a bid from them.

Below are the InLine Notes:
i) Type W4 will have frosted glass as per your request.
ii) Clear glass will cost the same as Low-E glass, I therefore included your garage windows in with the Type W5 units.
iii) You have 3 choices of Low-E coatings, all for the same price. You can mix and match depending on which elevation the units are located at. I?d be happy to help you decide which coatings are best suited for each elevation utilizing the Passive Solar premise.

Alice, so I took a look at all of your bids. I like Gilkey windows, but the bid is quite a bit more expensive than the other two so I don't think you need to go with this one.
The Revere Berkshire Elite for $9,399 is a solid bid, but I think you have a much better bid.
The Inline Fiberglass 900 Series for $8,694 (I totaled up the cost for nail fins, anchors and shipping) is a great bid. I'm assuming that your contractor is doing the install and as long as he feels comfortable installing the Inline Fiberglass windows, that's the one I would go with. I don't get a ton of questions about them, but they are a solid operation from everything I've heard.
Let me know how it goes!

Gilkey Window Experience
We recently used Gilkey windows for our house and I couldn't be happier with the whole process. The sales person knew what he was talking about and gave us a pretty long presentation (it could have been shorter, but whatever) that compared their products and services to others in the area. They didn't spend the time bashing the other companies, but instead talked about the quality of their windows, which I appreciated.
One of the issues we had were lots of different sized windows that seem like they were gonna be more expensive through some of the other different companies in the area. Since Gilkey makes all of their own windows and installs all them too, instead of using subcontractors, it seem like they were a good fit. It took about two months for the windows to be ordered and delivered, which was no big deal since we wanted to go slow on the process and make sure that everything went according to plan. When the windows came in, there were two that were slightly off and they actually re-ordered them and installed them after they did the rest of the 18 or so "correct" windows.
The installation itself went very well -- they showed up on time they were clean and neat and they did a very good job installing all of the windows, especially the larger ones on the upper floors. Overall I was very impressed. I thought the pricing was fair. I can't remember what we paid per window, it was something like $400 to $500 for your more normal size window and $700 to $800 for the larger picture windows in our living room.

Gilkey Windows Cost
We are replacing 11 windows in all and are choosing between the following:
Gilkey Double Hung 366 (U-value 0.26) $800 per window
Soft-Lite Elements: (triple pane, U-value .19) $680 per window
To me, the Gilkey seems a bit more sturdy. Also the window would be installed by a team that works at the factory so I'm assuming they know the windows very well. What would your call be?

Hi Cindy. Gilkey does make a good window, but I'm not sure there are many people out there who would consider anything they make better than the Soft Lite Elements. The Elements is widely considered one of the top five vinyl windows around. Assuming the Soft-Lite installers seem like they know their stuff and have good online reviews, that's the choice I would make. However, either window is going to serve you well for decades to come.
