Simonton Window Models
I had a window guy come out for an estimate. We have 23 windows. He said they use Simonton. I told him I was after the mid grade level. He wrote up an estimate for the "Asure" model. It looks to me that the Assure is the entry level, not the mid grade. Am I correct? If so, what is the mid grade window?

Steve, you are correct that the Asure window is more of an entry level vinyl window than a mid grade. Simonton makes lots of windows so I'm going to give you some different models. Under the Reflections line, the 5300 series is the mid range model. On the East Coast, this is often called the Prism Gold model - same window.
The company makes an Impressions model that is a bit higher end but the 9800 model is a very good window. Through Home Depot, the company sells two models that I feel are pretty much middle of the road and this includes the VantagePointe and the Daylight Max. I think the VantagePoint might be a bit better in terms of performance than the Daylight, which uses a thinner frame.
Hopefully, I've given you enough models to go back to the rep and ask whether he carries any of these lines or models. Good luck!
