Vytex Georgetown Windows Reviews
The Vytex Georgetown window is the economy or entry level vinyl window and really the the only of the three Vytex windows models that I wouldn't recommend for most homeowners, although I wouldn't say it's a bad window - just that the Vytex Fortis and Potomac-hp windows are much better. In fact, the Georgetown makes our list of best cheap replacement windows. I always advise consumers to stretch into a mid range vinyl window if possible to maximize long term value, but I realize that's not always possible.
Here are some standard features on the Vytex Georgetown series - a fusion welded sash and frame (2.75" jamb width), a DuraTex spacer, constant force balance system, a sloped sill, a low-e glass, extruded aluminum frame, single strength 2.5 mm glass and dual cam locks.
The window can be ordered as a fixed frame, double hung, two or three part slider, as well as several bay and bow window set ups. The double hung comes as a full tilt in to make for easier cleaning. All in all, a pretty straightforward simple vinyl window that actually performs pretty darn well.

Vytex Georgetown Warranty
As with most vinyl windows, the Vytex Georgetown window comes with a limited lifetime warranty that covers the frame, locks and all the hardware. Vytex Georgetown Series warranty also includes a glass breakage provision, which is a strong features.
The Vytex warranty does not include the cost of replacement labor, nor does it cover the cost to deliver the replacement window(s). All in all, a decent vinyl window warranty.
Vytex Georgetown Window Ratings And Specs
I see your review of these windows made by Vytex, being "Cheap replacement windows"
Can you tell me the specs. Do the sliders have Argon gas, are they Tempered Full, do they come with the child safety locks, are they "Extreme 2 Pane/Low-E &Argon.. etc. ?
What other companies manufacturer the Georgetown? If so, are they made any better than what Vytex manufactures?
Thank for any advice you can provide,

Laura, the only other company that sells the Vytex Georgetown is Window Nation. The Georgetown is not a bad window at all, but I do list it under the "economy replacement windows" category. Vytex makes the Fortis and Potomac-HP series, both of which are considered good to great vinyl series.
Here is my write up on the Georgetown series, which can be viewed on the page below...
The Georgetown Series double-hung window with dual paned glass, low-e coating and argon fills will deliver a .29 U-factor, .30 SHGC and a .54 VT. It pass the Energy Star requirements in all four regions of the country. Homeowners can expect an air infiltration of 0.09, and an R45 performance grade.
For an economy vinyl window, the Vytex Georgetown model achieves very respectable numbers.

Georgetown Windows Prices
Hello Dane, I have a quote for 16 Georgetown windows, 14 - 2 lite sliders, 1 very large 3 lite slider, and 1 picture window for a quote of $10,000.00
Does this seem like a reasonable quote?
Thank you for any advice.

Mark, generally the $19K for 16 windows, including a 3 lite slider sounds definitely in the ballpark of fair. However, I can't tell you if this is the best price and quality of product available in your area. The answer to this question comes in the form of three or even four bids that show you a "spectrum" of pricing and windows. This for me is the very best way to maximize your understanding of what's available and to hopefully to find the best bid. I also think it gives you leverage if you want to go back to the company you want to do with and ask them to match a lower bid.
