Drafty and poor. Had ice on inside of window
Installed by Clear Choice Allentown of PA
Put no insulation between window frame and wall frame.
Good price but bad window. When we called the company about problems they said it was normal to get air in. You have to get a draft in the window to keep the heat in. When I said I have pictures of ice on the inside of the window they suddenly stopped the nonsense explanation. She then asked for the pics. Several days later still have not heard anything.

My review is about VISTA windows quality. We had a large picture window 14'X6' replaced with solid 6'X6' and 2 casement side attachments 6'X3'. Also 2 6'X32" casements in another room. Have had nothing but problems with hinges. Had installer out 3 separate times to adjust and finally just gave up. Our thought is there is top hinge too weak to hold the weight when open. Screens for these windows bow in slightly in middle and leave small gap for bugs to get in. They have 4 spring clips but only 2 buttons, I am using tension curtain rod to push back and tighten. Just got around to do thorough cleaning and there is ripple in middle of solid window as well as scratches on exterior glass. Also have smears and foreign matter between double panes. We also have 2 42"X48" and 3 24"X48" casements that work a lot better. When high outdoors moisture and cool temps condensation builds on outside of all windows. Explanation for this is it's standard (?). Haven't replaced all windows and surely will not order VISTA for other windows.

We bought 3 large slider-type windows and one small double-hung type. The double-hung seems fine, but the sliders fit loosely in their frames and air blows through where the sections meet and at the bottom. They are far less energy-efficient than the old windows they replaced, which were not drafty.

They brushed off damage to the window edges as "normal damage due to transit." They did not fill the area between the frame and window with insulation, but tore off little bits of fiberglass insulation and poked them around the edges of the window.
The cost of 4 windows was $3,650.75, which seemed like a good price. We now realize that quality should have been a more important factor than price, since we are now spending more on utility bills than we would have been if we had purchased good windows.

On time special attention to details, very clean and professional install, exterior clad work was the best I've ever seen,all windows were foamed in and sealed inside and out. This crew gets my vote!!!
9 dh r-7 glass with exterior cladding $3,240 about $360 ea
