A Simonton Window Question? Suffolk County NY 631-588-5032

Question: "Are Simonton Windows Any Good?"
That was just about the extent to the reader's question, so I'll have to leave it at that. It's a blanket question, so I can really only give a blanket answer.
Answer: Since 98% of the questions that come my way deal with replacement windows, I'll assume that's what we're discussing. Replacement windows go in existing homes; new construction windows go in new homes or additions to existing homes.
  • Simonton windows are all vinyl windows.
  • Vinyl windows are perfectly fine.
  • Simonton brand has been around for a long time.
  • Lots of replacement window companies push Simonton, for whatever reason. Ask them why; I don't know.
  • Like many other window manufacturers, Simonton has been working on dialing up the quality of its vinyl windows.
  • In days of old, "vinyl window" was synonymous with "inexpensive." No longer. It's possible to buy pricey vinyl replacement windows, too, so be careful when shopping. This applies to all brands, not just Simonton.
  • You're going to be buying Simonton windows through authorized dealers, not directly.
  • I know of no reason not to buy Simonton windows. If anybody has any reason, let me know.
