Polaris 7400 Series vs. Okna Eco-Pro 600
Hello Tim, I’m interested to know what you think of the new Polaris 7400 Series. (The sales person said it’s an upgrade of their ThermalWeld Series.)
I’m replacing three windows: Double Hung (30x45), Double Hung (36 x45), Slider (38x39). Three panes will have privacy glass and each window will have a full screen.
I received the following quotes:
1) Polaris 7800 (foam filled with supreme2 glass): $1,600
2) Okna Eco-Pro 600 Series (HeatSeal glass deluxe package): $2,150
In your opinion, are the Okna windows work the extra $550 or $183/window?
If I was to get a third quote from a Soft-Lite installer, what would be the most similar level/series to quote?

Matt, I haven't yet seen the Polaris 7000 series. I searched for information online, but wasn't able to find anything. If it's an upgrade on their ThermalWeld Series, that's great. I'd ask for some performance data, but I'm assuming it's in between the ThermalWeld and UltraWeld. If that's the case, I'd have say that this window would be as good if not a bit better than the Okna Eco-Pro 600 (although the deluxe package is quite nice).
I would probably say the Polaris 7800 with the foam fill and upgraded glass package would be a great option. As long as the installation is solid, you can probably save yourself the $550.
