Simonton Asure Windows Reviews

Like many entry-level options, Simonton Asure windows use a narrower frame and lacks many of the bells and whistles that often come standard on the upgraded models. The Asure is one of our selections for the top cheap window replacements on the market. The Simonton Asure Series took over for the Simonton 5050 window back in the spring of 2012.

The Simonton Asure is a thinner, more narrow version of some of the upgraded Simonton window models. The result is more viewing area and glass, however the downside is fairly mediocre energy efficiency. The Asure model uses the same sash as was on the 5050, however the actual frame is nicer looking.

The Asure comes in either white or tan (on both the interior and exterior) can be ordered as a double hung, 2 lite slider, picture window or in a number of geometric shapes.

Simonton Asure Ratings

The Asure double hung that measures 46"W x 84" high will have an air infiltration of 0.20 scfm/ft. With the ProSolar low-e glass, argon fills and the Intercept spacer, consumers can expect the Assure to get a .33 U-factor, 3.03 R-value, .40 VT and .24 SHGC.

These performance numbers are about what homeowners should expect from an entry level vinyl window in this price range. They are considered okay at best.

Simonton Asure Warranty

The Asure model includes a double lifetime limited warranty on the mainframe (and all vinyl materials), components, screens and hardware. The double lifetime means that if you were to sell your home, the next buyer gets the warranty for their lifetime as well (homeowners must notify the company in writing of the transfer). This warranty is identical to the Simonton 5300 Reflections window.

The glass is covered for 20 years, although the portion covered by the company is at a prorated amount. The warranty does not cover glass breakage, laminated glass, interior laminates or factory applied coatings. As with all warranties, there are a litany of limitations and exclusions that buyers shoud read prior to purchase.

Hi Jim: we live along the CT shore. We are looking to replace some of our windows and have gotten bids from Andersen, Pella & Martin. They are all quotes of about 10,000 for 2 double double hung windows and two single double hung widows in two bedrooms, installed. We've been told about $1,500 -$1,700 per window.

It seems excessive. My brother got 18 Simonton Asure double hung windows in 2016, installed, for about $7,500. He has about 4 foot windows and ours are all 5 foot. I know that makes a difference.

We want have blown seals now and want some more energy efficiency. Any thoughts? Thanks, Andy O. (Please respond to both emails if you can respond, thanks.)

Prices have been crazy lately, but I would think $1K per window is attainable if you gather a number of bids. Here is my list of good and great windows you to continue your search: You can use our Price Quote Form, beginning where it says SEARCH BY ZIP. You will receive 1 to 4 local bids (average number is 2). I'm not incentivized by any of the companies so I'm happy to provide you with unbiased advice on cost, quality, and long term value.

Simonton Assured Series

Hii Jim, I googled Simonton Assured series and saw your review. I live in Houston Texas and need windows. I do not need a Cadillac but good solid options that will keep the heat out, be strong and not break. We do get hurricanes but I am not in the WindStorm zone that needs higher level garage doors or windows.

A friend recommended an installer in my neighborhood who sells the Simonton Assured series. I wondered why his price was 1/2 of most of the quotes I received from other window installers / companies. Can you provide some ideas on other options? I need something more substantial than the entry level Simonton Assured series.

I was told it had a lifetime warranty but read (in your article) that it was prorated by the age of windows. Also, that it did not cover breakage. Can you provide some ideas on other options? I need something more substantial than the entry level Simonton Assured series. Thank you.

Simonton Asure Window Prices

Your site has been so helpful with reviews to narrow things down, but picking windows is proving to be very difficult. Everywhere I look seems to have different opinions on each brand and just when I think I've narrowed it down I read something that makes me start considering one I've eliminated. I'm replacing a patio door, 3 very large slider windows, and 4 small basement windows.

Amerimax comes in cheapest at $5,500, with my choice of Masters or Craftsman with AG3.

The Milgard Tuscany is $6,400, but I think that is for whatever the base level everything is.

The Simonton Asure is $7475 with the "better glass package", but I'm pretty sure I can talk the contractor down a bit on that one if it's the better window.

Zen Nirvana is $7415. I keep reading that it's the Soft-lite classic, but based on what was written in the quote it seems to be the pro. Also, I'm not sure if ZEN will negotiate.

Which of these is the best window overall (in Denver, CO)? Is the Nirvana or Asure 25% better than the Amerimax? If they really are superior I don't mind spending the extra money, but if they are all on par, I'd go with the lowest quote.

Marie - Homeowner - February, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

Marie, the Simonton Asure is the company's entry level model and nowhere near what the Soft-Lite Classic or Pro is (I was always under the impression that the Zen Nirvana was the Classic but perhaps it is the Pro -- either way they are very similar windows).

I like the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait windows for $5,500, I would say that window is equivalent to the Milgard Tuscany. This would probably be my pick, although I would try to negotiate with each of them to see how much they will drop the price. Amerimax makes a good vinyl window and patio door.

I would have to say that the Soft-Lite Pro is the better window compared to the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait, but not for that price increase.

Simonton Asure vs 5500

I had a window guy come out for an estimate. We have 23 windows. He said they use Simonton. I told him I was after the mid grade level. He wrote up an estimate for the "Asure" model. It looks to me that the Assure is the entry level, not the mid grade. Am I correct? If so, what is the mid grade window?

Steve - Homeowner - July 25, 2016

Website Editor's Answer

Steve, you are correct that the Asure window is more of an entry level vinyl window than a mid grade. Simonton makes lots of windows so I'm going to give you some different models. Under the Reflections line, the 5300 series is the mid range model. On the East Coast, this is often called the Prism Gold model - same window.

The company makes an Impressions model that is a bit higher end but the 9800 model is a very good window. Through Home Depot, the company sells two models that I feel are pretty much middle of the road and this includes the VantagePointe and the Daylight Max. I think the VantagePoint might be a bit better in terms of performance than the Daylight, which uses a thinner frame.

Hopefully, I've given you enough models to go back to the rep and ask whether he carries any of these lines or models. Good luck!

Simonton Asure Window vs. Alside Mezzo

I am looking at the Simonton Asure and Alside Mezzo. What are the concerns/issues between the two and is one better than the other.

Michele- Homeowner - July 17, 2016

Website Editor's Answer

Wayne, these windows are probably about equal in terms of quality and performance, although I think I'd give the nod to the Alside Mezzo.

Neither one of these windows is one that would top my list of vinyl windows however. Instead, I would go with the mid range window from one of these brands; Okna, Soft-Lite, Sunrise, Polaris…

I believe all of these brands should be available where you live. At least get bids from 2 companies who sell these brands and see how the prices compare. They are going to be much better than either the Asure or the Mezzo and quite possible not THAT much more.
