Ideal Windows Costs And Quotes

Explore Ideal window costs and prices from real consumer quotes and bids on their past projects. Ideal Window is a New Jersey vinyl window and patio door manufacturer that has quite a long history to them. They aren't a household name by any means and in general they produce what most contractors and industry insiders would probably term mid range vinyl windows and doors. I think they make a good product and their top tier window, the Majestic, offers performance data that rivals Okna and Soft-Lite, specifically a U-value of .23 and an air infiltration rating of .02, with their low-e glass package.

Their window series include the UltraTite, DuraWeld, the Majestic Signature, and the Platinum 3000 window. I think Ideal is worth a look and a bid, and they are certainly better than a lot of the bargain or budget manufacturers out there.

Ideal Platinum 3000 Window Quote

I am looking to replace 15 windows. I have a bid for $5,600 for Ideal Platinum 3000 windows, a bid for $8,400 for Provia Endure 600 series windows, and a bid for $11,300 for Polaris UltraWeld series windows.

I would very much appreciate your thoughts on these options. Thank you.

Site Editor's Response

Jim, each of these three windows are excellent. All top tier windows. The crazy thing is how different the estimates are. The Ideal Platinum 3000 is a high quality window. The price quote is actually suspiciously low for such a good window. If the installer has a solid reputation and good online reviews, I would jump on this. Again, an almost suspiciously low bid.

The ProVia Endure bid is quite good as well and it's $3K more!

Ideal Platinum Lead Proofing Cost

Hi. I am replacing 14 windows with Ideal Platinum. My county is strict re lead and installer says current windows test positive. They want $50/window extra to 'lead-safe practices'. Is this a reasonable price? Thx!

Pam - July, 2019

Site Editor's Response

Pam, $50 to lead proof the windows is the standard price. What did they want for the windows out of curiousity?

Ideal Platinum 3000 vs. Okna 500

Dan, I have two bids, one on the Okna 500 and the other on the Ideal Platinum 3000. The Platinum 3000 has very good energy efficiency, but a much lower VLT when compared to the Okna 500, .45 compared to .55. I want to get as much light in as possible so this is a big concern for me.

Robbie - November, 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Robbie, I don't think you would notice a difference between .45 and .55. Both the Okna 500 series and the Ideal Platinum 3000 are good windows, so I would go with the Okna 500 if you like more light to enter the glass. Of course, the big concern for me would be the installation company doing the work and the overall cost comparison between the two jobs.

Ideal Platinum Pricing

I have five to replace 15 windows and I live in Pennsylvania. I'm trying to figure out which is the best value for my money. Any assistance is appreciated.

Zen Nirvana: $555 per window

Ideal Platinum: $459 per window

Alside Mezzo: $418 per window

Francis - May, 2018

Site Editor's Response

Francis, the price quote you have on the Zen Nirvana is good. The Ideal Platinum window however is also quite good and that is a pretty smoking deal. I might have to consider the Ideal Platinum to be the winner here.

Ideal Platinum Pricing

I'm in the process of collecting bids for 12 replacement windows -- the bids that I have I posted below. They include removal, debris, installation, the whole nine yards. Wondering what you think.

Kensington Huntington: $5520

Ideal Platinum 3000: $5520

Okna 500 Series: $5640

Vytex Fortis Series: $5880

Okna 800 Series: $6420

Chase - October, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Chase, I like all of these bids. The Kensington Huntington is a good window, as is the Ideal Platinum. However, the Okna 500 might be my pick. I'd say the 500 is on par with the Vytex Fortis. If you can afford it, the Okna 800 series is the best of the bunch, but of course it is also the most expensive. I would also look at the installation quality from the local company bidding out the job as one of the key factors in making your decision.

Ideal Platinum vs Vytex Fortis

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 on the Okna 500, 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.

Ideal Platinum 3000 Window Costs

I'm 69 years old and never purchased windows before so I'm trying to get all the help I can. I'm looking at the high end Ideal Platinum 3000 window. I have a bid for 15 windows with grids fully installed ball park quote is $6700 with one tempered window. Without grids and tempered glass around 6000. Seems like a very fair price if the windows are good. The company helped Ideal with this new window, which they indicate is an upgrade to the Majestic, what questions do you think I should ask or firm up when I go the showroom? Thanks for all your help.

Gene - April, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Gene, hi, I have to say this is an excellent price for that window. The big question I have is on the performance data. Did they measure the U-facor from center of glass (this can be done to make the U-factor lower or better sounding than it really is). Also the air infiltration number, is that using triple pane or double pane - you want the double pane number since that's what you are buying.

Assuming these numbers are right, I wouldn't have too much concern about the window itself. I would just make sure that the company who is installing the window is very thorough in their installation and doesn't cut corners to save money.

If you are satisfied with the company, then I think you have done a great job!

Ideal Majestic Windows Costs

Ideal Majestic Prices

What is your take on the Ideal Majestic series? We recently got a bid on 23 windows, some larger others smaller. The average price came out to $550 per window. Is this a good price for the window?

Barry - May, 2018

Site Editor's Response

Barry, the Ideal Majestic series is a very solid vinyl window that has an excellent air leakage number of .02, virtually impossible to beat (the Okna 800 model and Soft-Lite Elements are the only two windows I can think of that are lower.)

The price you were quoted, $550 per window, is frankly an excellent average price for this window. You may want to see if you can get the dealer to go lower than this by asking him to match another bid you have, but as it stands now, you have a very fair price quote!

Ideal Majestic Pricing

I was wondering what you thought of the Viwinco Cambridge and the Ideal Majestic? I have a couple of quotes -- the Viwinco Cambridge is $265 per window and the Ideal Majestic is $375 per window. I have 13 windows in all. Eight years ago we had 15 windows replaced with Viwinco (can't remember model name) and so far have had no problems with them.

Ronnie - November, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Ronnie, I'd probably say the Ideal Majestic is a touch better than the Cambridge, but not by much. Assuming you like the Viwinco windows and they have served you well over the years, it stands to reason that you'll like them again. Obviously this assumes good installation, which is always key with replacement windows in general.

Ideal Majestic Window Cost

My home was built in the 1920s outside of Philadelphia and I'm replacing 29 openings (40 windows in total). I have two contractor quotes that are very close and I'm trying to figure out which is the better option. The first one is using the Ideal Majestic Signature and the quote is for just over $25K. The second is from BF Rich and is just under $25K. Do you have an opinion on price and quality of either of these two?

Benny - August, 2016

Site Editor's Response

Benny, that's a big job you have on your hands. Of the two brands you currently have bids on, I'd have to say the Ideal Majestic Signature windows is going to be the better value over the BF Rich. If it were me, I'd get two more bids to compare what you currently have and to see if you can't get a better window brands like an Okna or a Sunrise. These will offer better value in my opinion.
