Starmark vs OKNA vs Soft-lite

#1 Post by joestein514 »

So, my window saga continues....

The person who told me about replacing vinyl windows with full construction windows had their associate call me back and we spoke for a while.

While the person at the showroom mentioned Okna 500s for full construction replacement of my Vinyl windows at $750/installed, this person mentioned Starmark (Which is the same company I believe - just a composite vs Vinyl window). They mentioned a price of $950 installed. They said they have done many homes in my development. They are coming out on Friday to take a look. They have been around a long time in my area. Some people love them them, some not so much.

I also heard back from the soft-lite dealer/installer - He offered me imperial elite installed for around $750/window. I wanted to make sure that he was aware that we had vinyl windows currently - he said it made no difference in his price, but he would send out his estimator to take a look. I am waiting to hear back from them.

I do have around 30 windows plus a patio door to replace - so it is a big job.

In that comparison, the 500 is the better window and the Starmark is better than the 500.

First of all, nice job in narrowing your search to good choices. Secondly, that price is a STEAL for the Starmark composite which is a phenomenal window when you combine the looks and performance. I'd take that choice in a heartbeat. The other choices are very good, but that is really a great price and a better value for a product that really doesn't have anything that rivals it on the market. If that's the same guy offering the SM and 500, he's taking a lower margin on the SM.

Touch, feel, and operate all three of these and that will fill in some gaps for you.
