PGT Windows Costs And Quotes

Explore PGT window costs and prices from past homeowners and consumers on their EnergyVue 5400, SpectraGuard 2300, 2200, WinGuard, 400, and the PremierVue 2700 and 2800 window models. PGT is based out of Florida and is known for their impact and hurricane windows. They make vinyl and aluminum models that are either impact or non impact windows. The company has a good size dealer network in Florida, but I don't hear much about them outside of this state. This might change so I'll update the page if I get any additional information.

Pricewise, PGT windows tend to be in the mid range and are often compared with CWS and the Simonton StormBreaker Plus. PGT tends to be a top pick for me when it comes to impact windows that are good quality at a reasonable price point.

PGT Energy Vue Windows Cost



CWS Aria vs PGT 5410 Series

We are set to replace 2 sliding glass doors and 14 windows and our Florida home. We have two quotes so far and I'm trying to get a sense of what my best option is. I'd love to know which you think is the better option.

1st Bid: CWS Aria sliders and MI 1615 sliding doors: $10,375

2nd Bid: PGT 5410 sliders and PGT sliding doors: $11,650

Jennifer, I like CWS as a brand of windows, but I'm really not a huge fan of MI windows. They are a good sized company, but they concentrate on builder quality windows, which is not a good recipe for long term value. The PGT window and slider bid is the better of the two as PGT makes good windows and patio doors. It is absolutely worth the extra cost in my opinion.

PGT Energy Vue 5400 vs. Simonton 5300

I'm looking for a CWS Dealer in the Lakeland Fl area. How does the HD window compare to the 5400 & the Reflections. Do you think the CWS is a better window? I have the following quotes:

HD Simonton Vantage Point: $8850

PGT Energy Vue 5400: $10,900

Simonton Reflections 5300: $10,200

Benny, I would say that CWS and PGT are equal in terms of quality and craftsmanship -- however remember that they both sell a number of different series and the quality, performance, and price will vary accordingly. I would say that all three of those bids look in proportion to one another. The Vantage Pointe is not as good a window as the 5400 or Reflections 5300/5500.

I personally like the PGT 5400 and (assuming you like the company who is going to install it) I would work to get their bid down as low as possible. I would say you have a bid on the Reflections for $10K and if the PGT rep can match it, you are willing to sign that day. See what he says -- although I would definitely wait to see where the CWS bid comes in at...It's a confusing process to be sure, go slow, and work the project bid down until you're at the bottom with the best window. Then you've done your job.

PGT 5400 Window Prices

I want to upgrade my old casements and have narrowed my search to 2 different window manufacturers. On is Eastern Architectural Systems, which sells a single hung for $325 installed and the PGT Energy Vue model 5400 series for $375 installed (I rounded the price per window, I have about 15 windows to replace). I work for the Navy and am on a budget so I want the best window at the best price (I'm sure everyone wants this, right?)

Jenny - October, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Jenny, Eastern Architectural Systems are not a very big operation and honestly I don't know a ton about them. PGT is an excellent window manufacturer and would be my pick -- especially because I know so little about EAS. $375 per window for the PGT Energy Vue 5400 is a very good price and definitely worth the price point. I always advise consumers to negotiate on the price to see if the dealer will come down off the initial bid, but I would think there would be little wiggle room on that price. But it never hurts to ask!

I like the PGT Energy Vue 5400 window, this is what I would go with. Make sure whoever installs it, has lots of experience with this particular window.

PGT 5500 Windows Costs



PGT 5500 Series vs. CWS 8100 Windpact Plus

I have two bids on 6 windows that pretty big, approx. 72 inches by 52 inches. These are both single hung windows. We live in Florida.

CWS 8100 Windpact Plus Series: $1450 per window

PGT 5500 Series: $2100 per window.

Colleen, I'm not sure how much work is involved with these windows, but that's quite a hefty per window cost. If it were me, I'd get a few more bids and see if I could drive down the per window cost.

I'd look at the Simonton Stormbreaker Plus series or the Simonton Coastal Series. Stanek also makes a very good hurricane window and they might have a dealer in your area.

I just think these two bids are really high, but I might be wrong.

PGT 5500 Replacement Pricing

We are replacing 8 single panes with hurricane windows. So far, I have 2 quotes -- the difference in price is just $600

CWS 8100 series: $5600

PGT 5500 series: $6100

Tommy - October, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Tommy, these two series are very close to one another in quality, features, and construction in quality. I'd say that PGT has a bit better reputation -- or perhaps I'd say they are a little better known that the Custom Window Systems. However, I like each of these companies for impact windows and I think you'd be well served with either one. I think the PGT is probably worth the extra $600 only for the fact that PGT has the stronger reputation and therefore is more likely to be around in 15 years if something were to go wrong. Hopefully you won't have to deal with that!
