Atrium Windows Costs And Quotes
Explore Atrium window costs and prices from past homeowners and consumers who have used their 8300 series. Atrium used to be more of a builder and contractor focused company, but they now sell directly to consumers, mainly using the big box stores like HD and Lowes. They also manufacture lots of windows and then sell them to other manufacturers who then relabel and sell them using their own name. Some of these brands include Norandex, Reliabilt, American Window Systems, and Ellison. In general, Atrium carries a decent name, although I certainly get my fair share of unfavorable stories about Atrium products -- usually the entry level ones that people used to flip houses with.

Atrium 8300 Vinyl Window Cost
Can anyone comment on the durability of the Atrium series 8300 replacement window? I live in Columbia, SC. I am buying 24 of these. I have a very good installer. I hear that the success of the windows literally hangs on the quality of installation. Is that correct?

Harold, I would say it's a low end mid range vinyl window that should run $250 to $325 out the door for the window and installation. In terms of installation/window, I'm going to say a 50/50 split between window and installation. in year seven when the seals break or the sash doesn't work properly, the installation is certainly not at fault.
If your installer likes the atrium 8300 and has had a good experience with them, then I'm not going to dissuade you from going with them.

Atrium Series 8300 Pricing
I recently purchased a home with Atrium 8300 vinyl sliders that frankly just don't seem like very good window. They just seem to leak air from everywhere. I've had 2 quote so far to replace my 19 windows and I'd love your help evaluated them.
The first is on the Wincore 5400 series for $10K and includes aluminum wrapping.
The second is on the Simonton 5500 Reflections series for $14K and also includes the aluminum wrapping.

Maybel, sorry to hear that the Atrium windows are not holding up. Of the two quotes you've received so far, I like both companies -- the 5400 series from Wincore is their entry level window and their 7700 window series is the better of the two. I would say that the 7700 is the equivalent of the 5500 series. Can you get a quote from the first company on the 7700 and see what that comes to -- then I think you'd be comparing apples-to-apples. My gut tells me that that bid would come in at something like $12K. At that point then the Wincore is the better deal, assuming that the installation is equal in quality.
I would go back to each contractor though and tell them that you have a lower bid and ask them what they can come down to -- I would think you could get the 7700 series for $11K and that that would be your best case.
