Ideal Windows Prices

Ideal Windows is a New Jersey based vinyl window manufacturer that has been in the business since 1924. The company manufacturers a number of series, including the UltraTite, DuraWeld, Majestic Signature, and the Platinum 3000. The company offers up the UltraTite and the DuraWeld as their double hung options, along with additional window style options such as horizontal sliders, hoppers, casements, awnings, bays and bow windows.

I don't hear much about Ideal, mainly because they are not carried by a huge number of dealers as compared to the larger national window brands. It seems odd because the performance of several of the Ideal windows is quite good. However, I have noticed for instance that the company uses a low-e4 glass to get their U-factor lower, which has a decidedly poor effect on condensation resistance. So I'm not sure what to say about them, I'll hold judgement until I get more information. I think labeling them a solid mid range vinyl window manufacturer is a fair estimation at this point.
