Ideal Windows Prices

Company Basics: Ideal 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.

Bottom Line: 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.

Shahidat, the Ideal Platinum 3000 is the best option by far based on the price. The performance data is excellent on this and I'm pretty confused why it wouldn't qualify for the tax credit...weird. I definitely think you should do your due diligence on American Home Centers though because that price is very low. But I do think it makes the most sense to stick with something on the less expensive side since your timeline is only 10 years.

Jay, we don't provide estimates on specific projects. You would need to contact the Ideal window rep in your area. I would suggest collecting a few bids so you can compare local companies and their prices. I am more than happy to take a look at your bids once you collect them and let you know which I think offer the best value etc.
