Harvey Slimline Window Ratings

In terms of ratings, the Harvey Slimline double hung in the standard low-e glass package (including argon fills) gets a .33 U-value (heat loss), .46 SHGC (heat gain coefficient), .55 VT (visible transmittance), and a 57 CR (condensation resistance)

A better glass package upgrade will generate a .29 U-value (heat loss), .29 SHGC (heat gain coefficient), .49 VT (visible transmittance), and a 57 CR (condensation resistance).

These are pretty mediocre numbers for a vinyl window, although for an entry level window, they aren't bad.

Harvey Slimline Warranty

Harvey offers a Lifetime Warranty that covers the extrusion, screens, and all of the components such as locks, balances, sash retainers, hardware, etc. The insulated glass unit carries a 20 year warranty. The warranty is transferrable to one subsequent owner, although the second owner's warranty has only a 20 year warranty period (instead of the lifetime) from the original date of manufacture.

In general, the warranty is pretty standard in the industry. Always read the latest warranty information for any window you are considering buying to double check no changes have been made to the warranty terms, etc.

Harvey Slimline vs. Reliabilt 3900

John, which is better window, the Reliabilt 3900 or the Harvey Slimline?

Roger - Homeowner - February, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Roger, the Harvey is the better brand overall. However, Reliabilt's "premium" 3900 and Harvey entry level Slimline series are pretty darn close in quality. I would recommend upgrading to the Harvey Classic vinyl window if you are looking to maximize your long term value.

Ask the Harvey dealer what his best price on the Harvey Classic is -- whatever he says, tell him it's too much for your budget and that you'll have to talk to your wife about it (or some other excuse). Give him a week and see if he comes back with a better price. This will give you a bit of time to process the upgraded cost and hopefully he will come back with a better price. You can always go back and take the deal. That would be my advice.
