Vytex Windows Costs And Quotes

Explore Vytex Windows window costs and prices from on their Grandview, Georgetown, Fortis, 3000 and Potomac-hp window series. Vytex windows are not well known by most consumers, but this Maryland based company does offer the Potomac-hp and Fortis vinyl windows, both of which I like. Their entry level Georgetown model isn't one that I would recommend, but that's unsurprising for a "builder grade" option. The company also sells bay, bow and garden windows in a single vinyl option that's more more middle-of-the-road.

Vytex are decent windows, fairly well made and the top end units incorporate some nice features and clean sightlines. Consumers can expect the Fortis with a low-e, grids and gas fills (mid range vinyl window) to deliver a .28 U-factor and a .05 air infiltration. The Potomac-hp should drop .01 to .02 from both of these numbers with the same glass option and delivers a 55 design pressure rating. I'm not a huge fan of their constant force balance system, I'd prefer the block and tackle to this, but it's a relatively minor issue.

Overall, the durability, construction, features and performance of the Vytex suite of products is quite good. I would equate them to the upper echelon of Simonton windows, although I would imagine that you can get them for 20% to 25% cheaper because they are so much less known than the Simontons.

Vytex Georgetown Windows Costs



Vytex Georgetown Novice Price Question

Here's a novice price question: Is $2800 for 7 Vytex Georgetown Windows installed good?

- February, 2019

Site Editor's Response

Matthew, $400 per window for the Vytex Georgetown is a fair price, about what I'd expect to see. I'd still get a couple more bids to see what else is out there and what prices they offer. The Vytex Georgetown is a decent enough window, but it's definitely a few steps down from the Vytex Fortis or Potomac-hp models. These are both VERY good windows in my opinion. I'd be curious what the quote for either of these would be.

Vytex Georgetown Series Pricing

I have a quote to replace 21 double hungs, 9 of which require tempered glass. The quote from Window Nations is $14,196 for the Vytex Georgetown window. Is this a fair price.

Jennifer - March 2018

Site Editor's Response

Jennifer, my own opinion is that the bid looks a little high for the Georgetown window. It's not my favorite -- the Vtex Fortis is a much better window. For $676 per window, you deserve something better than their entry level window. I would get some more bids and see if you can get some better options.

Vytex Grandview Windows Costs



Vytex Grandview vs. Sunrise Essential

I'm looking at two companies for my 28 double hung windows that I want to replace. One is on the Sunrise Essentials for $13,752K. The other is the Vytex Grandview is $17,294K.

William - August, 2018

Site Editor's Response

William, the Sunrise Essentials is the company's lower end vinyl window. Not a bad price though for the Essentials. The Vytex Grandview is better than the Essentials, but not by much. It's tough to say which window I would go with considering the price difference. I think the Essentials is the slim winner. I'd be interested to see how much the Sunrise dealer would sell the standard Sunrise window.


Vytex Grandview vs. Vytex Fortis

Are you able to outline the differences for me between the Vytex 'Fortis' and the Window Nation (Vytex) 'Grand View'? I cannot find enough information to do a decision making influencing 1 for 1 comparison.

Chris - December, 2017

Site Editor's Response

Chris, the Vytex Fortis is one of their best vinyl window; it's a nice unit, good design, and solid mainframe. It has a true welded slope, mortised sill wall, and injected foam sash. DP R-50 rating, .05 air infiltration, U-factor 0.26, visible transmittance 0.53, and SHGC 0.29 SHGC.

The Grandview uses a similar frame, but is more of a basic window, without the bells and whistles. .26 U-factor, .27 SHGC, .09 air infiltration. A solid mid range offering?where the Fortis is a top tier vinyl window in my opinion

Dan K. - December, 2017


Vytex Grandview Bid

We got a quote to replace 23 double hung windows in the house for $18,000 from Window Nation. It is their Vytex GrandView series with a .27 U-factor, .27 SHGC and and .08 air infiltration rating. Do you think it's a fair estimate?

Tammy - September, 2017

Site Editor's Response

At first glance, this price quote seems high to me. I don't know your project specifics so I can't say for sure whether or not this is the case, but I would do a couple of things. I would try and get two more bids to compare it to. Some recommended brands include Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Zen, Polaris, Marvin, Milgard, and Wincore. Hopefully at least one of these brands is carried by a company near you. Just google "okna windows in [your home town]" and see if a company carries them and then ask them to come out and give you a quote.

The Vytex GrandView is a good vinyl window and you may end up going with this one. The additional bids show you what's out there, let's you know the fair market price for your project, but also gives you some leverage in asking the Window Nation rep to come down off their price. For more specifics on this process, see our Start Here page and read step 3.

Vytex Grandview Window Cost

I have a bid on 24 windows. As you can see, the bids are very close. I'm trying to figure out which one is best.

Okna 600 Series: $15.5K

Window Nation Grandview: $15K

Barry - June, 2017

Site Editor's Response

Barry, the Okna 600 is the better of these two windows, although the Grandview is a good window in its own right. The 600 Okna is the newest model from the company and is very close in quality and craftsmanship to their 800 series, with a few minor differences.

The Grandview is actually made by Vytex and then resold by Window Nation. The Grandview has decent numbers, but the 600 has outstanding performance data. I think the 600 is worth the extra $500, but again these are two good vinyl windows.

Dan K. - June, 2017


Vytex Grandview Pricing

Hello, I'm hoping to get more info about the Vytex GrandView series. I'm replacing 1 picture window and 16 double hungs and the bid I have is for $10,750. The Grandview has a .27 U-factor, .27 SHGC and and .08 air infiltration rating, all of which seem to be good numbers from the research I've done on your website. I'm trying to decide whether this is a good window or not. I have another bid on the Simonton 5500 model for $6000. Which is the better deal?

Amy - September, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Amy, I believe that the Vytex Grandview model is one that the company makes for Window Nation. Based on the numbers you are throwing out, I'd say that it's a labeled Georgetown model. I'm not the biggest fan of the Georgetown, which is their entry level window. I'd be much more supportive it you were buying the Fortis or Potomac-hp. However, a .08 AI and a .27 U-factor are not bad numbers and you could certainly do worse. I'd say the $632 per window isn't a bad price.

However, the $355 per window for the Simonton 5500 model is a FANTASTIC price and almost seems too low to me. If it were me, I would jump on the 5500 offer before they pull it.

Vytex Fortis Windows Costs

Vytex Fortis Prices

Been reading site reviews and need an opinion for 20 windows that need to be replaced. The following are complete for windows and all installation. The windows are all double pane, double hung with colonial grids. The Pellas look like a nicer window, but you seem to like the 5500 and Vortis more than the Pella. Do you stick by this assessment?

Pella 350 Series: $11,400, local contractor

Simonton 5500: $11,900, local contractor

Vytex Fortis: $13,100, through Window Nation

Mary - June, 2017

Site Editor's Response

Mary, of the three window bids you have, I think I agree with your assessment that the Pella 350 series may be the nicer looking of the three, but they are not the highest quality. Of the Simonton 5500 and the Vytex Fortis, I think the Vytex Fortis is the superior window. I definitely think that it is worth the extra $1200. The Fortis model offers a .05 air infiltration number and I believe they come standard with a DP 40, both of which are quite impressive. For these reasons alone, I would definitely suggest trying to get the Vytex Fortis over the Simonton 5500 or the Pella 350.

However it's not clear to me whether that price quote on the Vytex is the lowest price you can get it for. My suggestion would be to go back to the dealer and tell them that you have a bid on the Simonton 5500 for $11,900 and that if he could match or come very close to that price, then you would be willing to sign with him that day. Wait for about three days and see if he comes back and offer you a lower price. My gut tells me that he will.

Vytex Fortis Pricing

I'm shopping for replacements windows here in Cincinnati, Ohio and after a number of presentations, I have gotten my search to 2 options for 18 windows, two 4x4 pictures and 16 double hungs.

Vytex Fortis: $8600 (includes removal, windows, and installation)
Zen Nirvana: $9500 (includes removal, windows, and installation)

Both windows include a lifetime and transferable warranty. Zen is a Soft-lite company I believe and has a pretty good reputation in the window biz. Vytex seems to also be well regarded, but maybe not so much as soft-Lite. My question is is the Zen worth the extra cost?

Oren - February, 2017

Site Editor's Response

Oren, first of all, I like both of these bids. I don't often say that so consider yourself lucky to have found two solid bids. The Zen Nirvana is the Soft-Lite Classic and is a good window. The Vytex Fortis is quite a good window as well, I would say at least equal to the Classic. With a standard low-e glass, the Fortis will deliver a .05 air infiltration, U value of .26, and an SHGC of .29. In terms of manufacturing tolerances, rigidity and strength of the extrusion, I would say these two windows are equal to one another.

If it were me, I would save the $900 and go with the Fortis. It's a great window and you'll save yourself almost a thousand bucks. The only qualifier here is the installation teams. Are these equal? Assuming you're getting good installation from both companies, the Vytex Fortis window is the clear winner in your two bids.

Vytex Fortis vs Ideal And Okna

Do you know how the Ideal Platinum 300 window compares with the Vytex Fortis window. The Fortis is $1700 more than the Ideal -- both quotes come from well reputed companies in the area. We also got a bid from Okna, but they are $3800 more and out of our price range.

Annie - September, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Annie, the Ideal Platinum and Vytex Fortis should be pretty close in terms of quality and construction. So the Ideal would be the better deal on the face of it (depending on how many windows we are talking about). Okna is definitely a step above both the Ideal and the Vytex, but I understand that $4000 is alot more to pay. I think the Ideal Platinum 300 window with quality installation is a decent middle of the road vinyl window that you should consider.

Vytex 3000 Windows Costs



Vytex 3000 Bid

I have gotten 3 bids so far and can't seem to figure out which is the best one. I have a good size project, 40 double hung windows, where some of them are good sized and more or less complicated in their layout.

First Bid: Vytex 3300 Series - Cost $37,000

Second Bid: Simonton 5500 Series - Cost $43,000

Third Bid:
Andersen 100 Windows - Cost $50,000

Linda - September, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Linda, I'm going to assume that the Vytex 3000 window is their mid range window, although I've never heard of this one specifically. Obviously, it's the lowest bid and it sounds like this is a decent option. In general, the Vytex will be a slightly lower quality than the 5500 or the 100 Series windows.

The 5500 is a good window, one of the better series that Simonton makes and probably a better option than the Vytex in my opinion.

I definitely like the Andersen 100 Series and find the window quite appealing its its look and feel. I don't think you are going to get more in terms of performance out of the 100 than the 5500 so the added cost would be your own personal taste as opposed to overall quality or durability. But again I think the Anderson 100 series window is one of the nicest looking windows on the market.

Vytex Potomac Windows Costs



Vytex Potomac Hp Window Cost

I'm replacing 38 windows, both picture windows and casements. They are using some custom colors, which they said is adding quite a bit to the overall cost

Imperial LS Model: $32,908

Vytex Potomac hp Model: $35,834

Okna 500 Model: $39,406

Zen Lotus Model: $46,094

Jock - August, 2018

Site Editor's Response

Jock, I like all the brands you have. Not a cheap project that's for sure! Of the bids you have I like the two least expensive bids the best. The Imperial LS is the best window of the bunch, followed very closely by the Vytex Potomac Hp. Either of these provides you with an excellent window. I'd pick the company who you feel is the strongest in terms of track record and

Dan K. - August, 2018


Vytex Potomac-HP Pricing

We've been collecting bids on replacement windows and so far this is what we have on our 10 windows and it includes everything. Wondering what your take on this is.

Vytex Potomac-hp: $5350

Okna 800 Deluxe: $5350

Vytex Fortis: $4950

Okna 500 Series Deluxe: $4750

Trey - September, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Trey, you have four great window options here and I must say that the per window cost looks great on all of them. If it were me, I'd probably have to go with the Okna 800, but honestly all of the windows in the list here look very solid. That's a nice problem to have!

Dan K. - September, 2016

Trey's Response

Thanks for your advice. I went with the OKNA 500 DX or Insultec as I understand. The glass area was bigger and I need more light. The extra features were not of great interest, and I thought the price was good for that as well. AGM is my contractor, rated well on Angie's list. I'd also like to add that your site helped me tremendously. I looked for dealers in my area after deciding on the better products available. Before that, I had quotes on Kensington and Ideal. They were about $100 less than the 500. I had concerns with each of these and now feel much more comfortable with the decision. I would absolutely recommend your site to anyone looking for help and information. you guys rock!
