Simonton Prism Gold Windows Reviews
The Simonton Prism Gold window is the mid range Prism model that is basically the equivalent of the Simonton Reflections 5300 window. The model uses a slightly more narrow fusion-welded frame design, somewhat similar to their Simonton Madeira series window.
The Prism Gold includes a number of standard features that includes interlocking meeting rails, an easy glide sash, a stepped sill, lift out sash for simple cleaning, and fiberglass screen mesh. In addition, the window comes standard with a 3/4" insulating glass unit that includes ProSolar glass, argon fills, and Intercept spacer. The window also comes with a roll formed screen frame, multiple weatherstripping points and color matched hardware.
The Simonton Prism Gold is a good mid range vinyl window that lacks flash, but is a solid buy, assuming quality installation and a good price point on the window itself. Simonton makes a nice window and the Prism Gold or the Reflections 5300 is one of our picks for mid range vinyl windows.

Simonton Prism Gold Ratings
The Simonton Prism Gold series with the ProSolar low-e glass, argon fills and the Intercept spacer will have a 0.33 U-factor, 3.03 R-value, 0.4 VT, 0.24 SHGC and 0.95 UV block from the center of block.
These are not super impressive numbers, although the window is well put together, so these numbers should hold, whereas other lesser replacement window models will often lose their effectiveness more quickly.
