I need your input on which brands you go for a garden window, I live in NJ (not in the coastal area)
TIA!

Not much input to share. Only a handful of folks make them and most of the other brands (i.e. Soft-Lite, Sunrise, Okna, etc.) use someone else's as they don't make their own.

Garden Windows are also very expensive and customers are sometimes shocked by the cost. (2500-3500 ).

hello,
Happy father’s to you all who are celebrating today !
Thanks for the insight! It is expensive but I have already consider the budget , it is a one time splurge on my end. These are the 4 brands that I have look at (Simonton, Ply gem , MI and Ventana USA).Are they a good window brands at all? Hoping I can pick some thoughts on this matter. TIA!

I would throw out MI. I think, don't quote me, that Ventana makes the garden window for all those guys.

Simonton is ok i guess but no one here is a fan of the others, particularly MI .
Look into soft lite, sunrise, kensington or okna windows.

Ventana makes the garden bays for Okna. I have not had a problem with them.

So...I was 80% correct.

FYI...the Ventana garden window is just fine.

I've used Ventana since I've been in this business haven't had any issues with them. Just to note Ventana will make the frame but doesn't put glass in them, the glass will be interred buy whatever "manufacturer" you get it from. ie MI, Okna, Simonton, Sunrise etc
