Xact Windows Costs And Quotes
Explore Xact window costs and prices on their 1650 double hung, 5500 sing hung, and 5800 single slider windows.Xact is a a window company that is now owned by MI and is primarily sold to contractors and builders. Traditionally, the company has had a reputation as selling a builder grade window, meaning a window made for the budget or price conscious consumer.
We've heard nothing to counteract this statement so I'm assuming this is still the case. In general, I think there are better windows out there, but I also think there's a place for a budget window. I would caution the average consumer to remember that you get what you pay for in the case of Xact.

Xact 1650 Prices
My contractor wants to put in the 1650 series from Xact as the window on our house and I'm trying to get some more information on how good or bad they are. I'm not finding much. He says they're on par with Jeld Wen and Pella. It's only 6 windows were replacing and the cost is $2800. I had a couple of other bids that were slightly higher so I'm trying to compare apples to apples. Help!!!

Jan, in general Xact doesn't have a very good reputation in the window industry. Yes they are on par with the Jeld Wen and Pella models that are sold in the big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot. Unfortunately, these companies sell their very low end vinyl windows here and this tends to be what Xact sells. Effectively it is a builder grade window, meaning that the windows are made to be sold to builders who want a cheap window to put into a spec house to maximize profit.
For $466 per window installed, you should be able to get something much better that will provide you with some nice long term value and won't be breaking down after 7 or 8 years. I would search and see if any local companies sell the following brands; Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris, Kensington and Simonton. The first five companies all sell an entry level window that is much better than the Xact and shouldbe in that same price range. For the Simonton, I'd say go with their mid range windows at the least and you should go in this price range.
