Consumers can expect the Paradigm 8300 series to deliver a U-value of 0.28, an SHGC of 0.31, CR 61, VT of 0.47, and finally an R-value of 3.57.

These are respectable numbers for the most part and, I believe, they back up my claim that the Paradigm 8300 is an upper end mid range vinyl window.

Paradigm 8300 Windows Reviews

Hello John. I was curious how the paradigm 8300 series compares to the universal Windows direct series. They’re about the same price and I’d wondered which you would think is the better option for us. We plan to be in the home for at least 15 more years.

Jonica, UWD UniShield Plus series is, I would say, the better window over the Paradigm 8300 series. Perhaps not by a huge amount, but it’s still no question in my mind, that the UniShield Plus, which is actually the Polaris ThermalWeld ( Polaris ThermalWeld Windows Reviews ), is the better option at the same price point. Paradigm makes a pretty darn good window, but the Thermalweld is the superior window in this case. Thank you so much for the question and I hope I have answered it as thoroughly as you need it to be.
