Vista Windows Prices

Vista Windows was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Lordstown, Ohio. The company makes a single line of vinyl windows and patio doors called the Panorama. I general, the Panorama line is considered right at the top end of the mid range of vinyl windows. So not quite top tier like the Okna 800 window or the Sunrise Restorations series, but still a very good window.

In general, the company has a reputation as a solid manufacturer. Not the best out there, but very solid in my opinion. I think if the price is right and the installation is good, Vista is a nice option for many consumers.

Vista Window Costs

Vista windows makes only one line of vinyl window, the Panorama, which will typically run $45 to $55 per square foot for the window itself. This doesn't include the cost of installation, which will vary considerably based on the local company you use.

Comparable manufacturers include Wincore and Stanek.

Vista Windows Ratings

According to the NFRC website, the Vista Panorama window offers these performance numbers (they assume argon fills and a standard low-e glass); .29 U-value, .29 SHGC, 57 Condensation Resistance, .43 Visible Transmittance), and a .20 Air Infiltration. All of these numbers are quite decent, exception for the AI, which is quite high and honestly one of the most important numbers to look at.

Consumers who upgrade to a better glass can expect these numbers to improve to a .23 U-value, 67 CR, .16 SHGC, and .23 VT. As well, the upgrade will lower the AI to perhaps the .15 range, which is still considered higher than we would prefer.

Vista Windows Warranty

Vista vinyl windows comes with a limited lifetime warranty that covers the vinyl frame, sash, all working parts, insulated glass unit, glass coatings, woodgrain laminated surfaces, exterior paint, and any applicable glass breakage provision. The warranty is transferrable to a second owner, although the warranty is then good for 25 years from the date of purchase. The transfer requires that the Vista transfer card is filled out and mailed to the company to notify them of the change.

Consumers who want to make a claim must go through the dealer or local company that installed the windows. All in all, good warranty terms. I haven't heard much about how the company handles their warranty claims so I can't speak to whether they are good or bad in this regard.
