Preservation Windows Costs And Quotes

Explore Preservation window costs and prices from past homeowners and consumers who have used their vinyl window series. The window is made and marketed by Alside Windows, although it appears to many consumers as an independently owned window (the Alside name doesn't show up on the website).

The Preservation window comes with good components and features, but it's an Alside frame, which leaves quite a bit to be desired in my opinion. The window is often pricey when its bid out and in that way it reminds me of a Renewal By Andersen (although not nearly as expensive). I feel like the window is good, but its not nearly as good as what the quotes and bids come in at for many consumers.

Preservation Windows vs Simonton 5500

Looking for 11 double hung replacement windows, all in white. We live in the Raleigh, North Carolina area and are trying to get a handle on the Simonton 5500 vs. the Preservation vinyl windows.

Simonton 5500: $5000 (Includes aluminum capping on the outside of the windows. It also includes 6 dormer boards that need to be replaced.)

Preservation: $6100 (Also includes the exterior capping, we never discussed the dormer boards but I'm assuming they might throw this in as well.)

Trudy, I personally think that Preservation windows are overpriced, from what I've seen of them. They offer nice features, but the frame itself isn't anything that impressive, not for how much they sell it for. I like the Simonton 5500 model -- it's quite well made and has lots of good features and options available. The $5000 price tag sounds like a VERY fair price for the window and all the additional work.

Preservation vs Zen Nirvana

I've collected four unique bids for the 17 windows I'm looking to replace. I was hoping to get your take on them.

1. Zen Nirvana: $11,250
2. Preservation Windows: $10,200
3. Alside Mezzo Window: $7,700
4. Atrium Series 8900: $5,000

Davis, of the four bids you have I definitely like the Zen Nirvana the best. I'm tend to think that the Preservation window is overpriced myself -- for what you're getting. The Mezzo price is about what I'd expect at $450 per window fully installed. I don't think I'd go with the Atrium 8900 series myself, I just don't think the quality is quite there.

However, I think $660 per window for the Nirvana strikes me as high -- I think if you could get that per window price below $600, then it would be worth it. If it were me, I'd try and find two more bids on windows that were comparable to the Nirvana (Soft-Lite Classic). I'm thinking of the Okna 400, Polaris ThermalWeld, Vytex Fortis, Sunrise Classic.

Preservation Window Quote

I've done a bunch of research (mostly on this website) and have settled on getting high end vinyl replacement windows. However, my first experience was not so good. I had a dealer for Preservation windows give me a 2 hour presentation where the final price after all of the dsicounts etc. were factored in came out to $1650 per window. That's a crazy price to pay right?

Don, that is a crazy price to pay, especially for a Preservation windows, which is made by Alside windows. Welcome to the world of windows where there are massive swings in the price of vinyl windows. You need to get a few more bids and see what the real fair market price is -- let me know what state you live in and I can make some suggestions as to good brands to look at.
