Find Vytex Georgetown windows reviews here. If you’re considering these windows for your home you’ll want to read this info. We look at the advantages and disadvantages along with the warranty, prices and more to see if these windows make sense.
It’s important to note that the Vytex Georgetown window is the lower end window. Usually it’s not a great idea to buy the bottom of the line windows and that holds true in this case.
If you’re looking for a cheap window for a rental or something there are other cheap choices to consider instead of this one.
What are the advantages of the Vytex Georgetown windows?
There aren’t a whole lot of advantages to a window model like this. You could say the warranty is decent, and we’ll cover that later. Other than that the hardware is average, the efficiency is pretty typical, there just isn’t a whole lot to talk about.
Manufacturers will make windows like this so that their nicer windows look nicer. Offering a cheaper option lets their retailers offer you a lower price. The trick is that the lower price comes with sacrifices which helps them justify the cost of the nicer models.
Ultimately, windows are going to be in your house for decades so it’s typically not a great idea get the cheapest option. You’ll be dealing with the windows long after you’ve forgotten the cost.
What are the disadvantages of this window?
There are a few downsides to this window model. It’s designed to be a cheaper option so it’ll definitely have downsides.
One is that the frame is bulkier than you’ll see on other models. You can see this in the picture above vs the similar pictures on our Potomac HP and Fortis reviews. This isn’t a look most people love.
Other factor to consider is that these windows are a little less energy efficient than the other Vytex models.
They’ll also use cheaper constant force balances that you can see below. These balances are cheaper than the upgraded block and tackle balances that you see in nicer windows.
What is the warranty on Vytex Georgetown windows?
The warranty on these windows is pretty solid. They come with a lifetime warranty that incudes glass breakage and it’s transferable when you sell the house.
The risk to consider is that Vytex is a smaller manufacturer which is a little riskier than a larger manufacturing company. Of course anything could happen to any company. It is important to note that we’ve seen many smaller window manufacturers vanish over the years leaving all of their customers with no warranty or access to replacement parts. That can be a situation that you don’t want to find yourself in.
What’s the bottom line?
Overall I would not suggest this window. Vytex intended to make a cheaper product and they succeeded. They talk about “value” in their brochures which is window code for cheap.
Ultimately if you have a rental house or a flip project where you need cheap windows there are better low end options out there. I’d avoid this model.
