Vinylmax Edison Windows Reviews

Vinylmax Windows, headquartered in Hamilton, Ohio, has been making windows and doors for over 40 years. While their entry level windows aren't stellar, their premium vinyl windows are a solid buy for many homeowners. I might rate Vinylmax at the top of the second tier window manufacturing list.

Vinylmax Windows receive a 4.3 rating out of 5 stars -- read 9 Vinylmax window reviews -- check our Vinylmax manufacturing page for additional information.

Our Vinylmax Edison Windows Reviews is one of the company's best replacement windows. Only the Vinylmax Newton model is better in terms of performance and standard features. The window includes a fusion-welded frame and sash, triple weatherstripping, extruded lift rails, and a shadow-grooved sash.

As well, the Edison comes with composite cam locks, flush mount tilt latches, a constant force balance, double paned glass, and the Intercept warm-edge spacer. Finally, the window comes standard with an aluminum BetterVue screen, and an optional Neopor upgrade that is a thermal insulation made from foam and graphite particles that improves strength and helps with insulation.

The Vinylmax Edison is available in an interior white, tan, or classic oak laminate. It comes in 7 exterior color options, and 4 grid styles. The Edison or 4600 Series is available as the 4600 double hung, the 4650 slider, or as the 4670 picture window. Consumers can expect .12 AI or air infiltration rating, which is considered decent, but not great. A .28 U-factor is a decent number as well.
The Vinylmax Edison Window Series gets a 4.4 out of 5 star rating.

Vinylmax Edison Ratings

Consumers can expect a 0.12 AI or air infiltration rating, which is considered decent, but not necessarily top tier. Consumers can also expect a .28 U-factor with the standard low-e glass, which is a decent number. SHGC will clock in at .28 and have .55 visible transmittance. Finally, the Edison will have a .60 condensation resistance. All in all, pretty solid numbers for this super end mid range window.

Vinylmax Edison vs Franklin

Hi John, we have been looking at Vinylmax windows and have a bid on the Franklin and the Edison. On your site, it says the Edison is the improved and slightly better window, but according to the sales guide, there is very little difference between these two windows. In fact, he said that they’re nearly identical to one another. I was wondering what your thoughts are . The bid price we have on the Franklin is $750 per window. What do you think of this price?

Tina - Homeowner - January, 2024

Website Editor's Answer

Tina, he is correct in saying that the Franklin and Edison series are very close to one another. In fact, I believe there’s only one small difference I want to say in the lift rail that differentiates these two windows. I think $750 is fine if you’re dealing with full replacement installation. However, if you’re just dealing with an insert window, but I think that bid is too high.

I would strongly suggest you seek out a few more bids to get some price comparisons, and to find out, what other local companies would charge you to install a similar quality window. Thanks so much for using the site, we really appreciate it.

Vinylmax Edison Windows Reviews

John, I redid my bids as follows:

6 sliding vinyl replacement wdws and one sliding door:

1. Zen Nirvana (Soft-lite Classic Plus) $9505

2. Anlin Catalina Windows (Malibu sliding door) $7295

3. Edison $9988

Pella 250 $14,213 Pella 250 Series Reviews

(Haven't been able to find a Sunrise windows dealer/installer in Denver.)

Which is the better option? Best value?

Thank you again!

Website Editor's Answer

JT, The Catalina and Anlin Malibu door cost is the best value for the money. No question in my mind. That’s the best price/value of the three. That’s a solid deal!

Edison vs Anlin Panoramic

We're super torn. Have two great options with two good companies, and we really liked both of the guys who came out to the house a lot. Price is roughly equivalent, so taking that out of the equation, do you have a leaning between the Edison vs the Anlin Panoramic sliders? The Vinylmax has a nice feature in that it be swung in to clean both sides of window from inside the house, but that's secondary to us vs. quality and durability. Any tie-breaking leanings one window vs. the other?

Website Editor's Answer

Amy, these two series are pretty close in quality I would say. I think I would turn my attention from the product to the actual company doing the work. This is where the difference could be huge.

Vinylmax Edison Windows Reviews vs Okna

My house has 19 double hungs that are desperately in need of replacement. I took your advice and got three bids that are...

Okna 500 Series (Deluxe Glass): $8740

MI 4300 Series: $7756

Edison Series: $6560

Website Editor's Answer

Ned, I'm not a big fan of MI Windows so I would toss that bid if it were mine. The Edison is a decent window and that is a very competitive price for that window. However, the Okna 500 Deluxe is a fantastic option and the bid you are getting is very good. I would say that the Okna bid is the easy winner that you will be happy with for a long long time. Congrats! You wouldn't believe how many consumers get stuck with mediocre windows for more than you are spending.
