Polaris UltraWeld Windows Reviews

The Polaris Ultraweld window is a very solid vinyl window, perhaps not in the top 5 vinyl windows available, but certainly in the second tier of top replacement vinyl windows. Standard features include all of the features on the Polaris ThermalWeld, along with a true sloped sill, internal tilt miniblinds, a sash tilt, recessed tilt latches, an extruded aluminum screen, and their energySMART low-e glass with argon fills and Intercept spacer.

The UltraWeld includes some very nice upgrades and features and absolutely gets my recommendation for a quality vinyl window that should offer nice long term value. Of course, this assumes that you get the window at a good, competitive price. Best way to do this? Get your 3 to 4 free bids from quality contractors and companies and compare!

Polaris UltraWeld Windows

The Polaris UltraWeld Series should run $40 to $50 per square foot for the window itself. Comparable windows include the Okna 500 Series prices and Sunrise Verde windows.

Polaris UltraWeld Ratings

Consumers can expect the Polaris UltraWeld double hung to deliver .27 U-factor, .27 SHGC and .41 VT. Most impressive is the air infiltration which can go as low as .02 with an upgraded low-e glass and krypton fills.

The solid construction and welds on this premium vinyl window means these numbers will hold up well over time. This is one reason why performance numbers can be misleading, many vinyl windows can post decent numbers on day 1, but not on day 1000. The UltraWeld is a solid contender in the vinyl window market.

Polaris UltraWeld Warranty

The Polaris UltraWeld comes with a lifetime warranty on the mainframe and sash. The warranty does not cover screen damage or glass breakage. The provision on the insulated glass unit is 30 years.

The warranty does not spell out whether or not it is transferrable to another individual, although I have read that their warranty is transferable a single time and then is good for 30 years from the date of purchase. However, I would urge all consumers to read the warranty terms and exclusions in full to verify this.

Polaris Ultraweld Casement Quote

I am replacing a very large window (114” x 56”) with casement 1/4, 1/2, 1/4. I have 2 quotes, atrium 8900 $2700 (he will do a second window same size air an additional $1500). Second quote is Polaris ultraweld casement for $1900. What are your thoughts on quality and pricing.

Website Editor's Answer

June, I can't exactly speak to pricing because I don't know how complicated the install. What I can say is that you have an easy choice between the two options you now have. The Polaris UltraWeld is the far better window -- and obviously much cheaper. You may want to get two more bids if you want to a lower range of price options, but the Ultraweld is a top quality window and this is clearly the option you should go with between the two.

Polaris Uniframe Warranty Question

My aunt purchased all new Uniframe windows for her porch back in 2012 from a dealer in Waterloo, Iowa. She recently passed away and in going through her papers we found a brochure for the windows and in it it states that the warranty on the windows is transferable to the new owner? I contacted the dealer and they weren't very helpful with this information. All they told me was that there was a form to fill out and you send the form and $50.00 and the warranty could be transferred. They claim they didn't have this form. Could you possibly tell me if this is the process you need to do to transfer the warranty and in fact where I could get such a form? Thank you!

Jeff, I would call up Polaris headquarters and see if they are more helpful. They should be able to guide you to the online warranty and you should be able to read the 1 to 2 page document, fill out the form, pay the fee and send it back to them. I would just make sure that you get confirmation from them that they received it, etc.
