Provia Endure Price Quote
Hi Jim, we’re in Maryland and are looking to replace our doors and windows.
4 sliding patio doors, 1 picture window with three panels, 3 sliding windows, a curved transom above one of the sliding doors, and an entry door + storm door. Pretty much every company that has come in has said our sliding doors are odd sizes.
We’ve gotten quotes from three companies and are quite confused, here’s what we have in terms of quotes:
(1) Sunrise Verde $31,625. They are an authorized dealer/ installer so the Sunrise warranty should hold up better.
(2) Provia Endure $25, 210. General windows/ exteriors contractor.
(3) $23,210 for a Custom line (Prodigy) made by Vytex for a window installation company (.26 U Factor and .21 SHGC) but can’t find any reviews for the line since it’s only made for this company.
Any help and suggestions would be really appreciated.
Also, I’m not sure how often you post questions on your website, but I would appreciate it if you didn’t include my personal information if you do post this question on your website.

Sandy, the Vytex Prodigy is, so far as I know, the same window as the Vytex Fortis. It's relabeled and sold through an exclusive dealer and is quite a good window. The fact is, all three of these windows are very good. Because there are so many doors in this equation, I think I would put the ProVia Endure windows and doors at the top. ProVia makes an excellent door and this is where this company got its start.
The Sunrise Verde is excellent, but I'm not sure I would be able to justify spending $8k plus more for this over the Prodigy. So...my second spot might be the Prodigy by Vytex.
Certainly the installation company has to be a huge factor. If the contractor doing the ProVia has good experience installing these and you trust them, then this is where I would go first.
