Simonton 6500 Platinum Prism Series

We have had them for a year now and are VERY pleased. There is a huge decrease in air leakage from outside when the windows are closed. Where possible we put in casements and some are quite large. The cranking mechanism works very well and we love the increased airflow. Aesthetically, we are very pleased with look of the imitation wood grain on the interior. Our only (minor) “disappointment” is that we could only get white for the exterior finish; since there is no other white on the exterior of our home, we would have preferred a darker finish.

$8500 for 16 windows, 10 large (32×54) main floor & basement, 5 medium-sized 2nd floor and 1 basement hopper

Simonton 6500 Platinum Prism Series

I never heard of Simonton until I check into consumer report. There rated very good. Now that I got them I totally understand. So easy to clean, open/close. In fact, I feel much warmer in my house. The salesperson was product smart and not pushy at all! She was seriously one of the best salespeople I have ever met.

Simonton 5500 Windows by Simonton

I ordered nine 5500 windows and two of them were delivered with very visible defects that should have been caught at the factory. It took two tries and three tries respectively before the idiots at the factory could get it right as far as sizing the replacements. My installer was very competent and I recommend them. They were in and out in about four hours and did a great job without wrecking the place. The sizing was very good and they didn’t need much sealant. I think Simonton and their JD Powers award are a bad joke. They must have bought it. Their factory demonstrated an inability to deliver defect-free products. I must give them credit for the seven windows that were defect free. The design is well engineered, but somebody needs to kick some butt at the factory and get the processes under control.

I’ve had these windows over 3 years. They are excellent, seal very well, clean easily, tilt with ease and very sturdy. The impact on my energy bill was huge and immediate. Excellent price performer as well. I would put these in any house I own.
