Vytex is a smaller window manufacturer located in Laurel, MD between Baltimore and Washington, DC.
Vinyl. Vytex windows are vinyl windows with basically the same set of available options and features that you can get from most window manufacturers.
Vytex windows are perfectly fine, but not particularly remarkable. They are a very small manufacturer and generally not one that we would recommend. We have sold Vytex windows from time to time when a particular situation called for it, but they’re not our recommended option.
I wouldn’t. There’s nothing particularly wrong with the windows but there is a lot more risk in working with these small manufacturers than people realize. If there was something fantastic about them it might make sense to take the gamble, but there isn’t so Vytex is not a product we would recommend.
Yes. Vytex offers a range of efficiency options so you can get windows from Vytex with similar efficiency ratings to the options you can get from many other window manufacturers.
The pricing for Vytex windows will vary quite a lot based on the options you pick, the nature of the installation and the commission that the salesman wants to make. There was one larger retail company that had pushed Vytex windows for years charging very high prices. This is not really great for the end user. I would expect to see Vytex windows priced in the range of $700-$1000 per window including installation. You can find more info on the costs of replacement windows in 2022 here.
Vytex windows are custom made so they’ll take some time to be produced and installed. The exact timing can vary quite a lot based on the current demand at the time and the options you ordered. I would expect to see these windows available in 2-3 months. You should check with the salesman on the current lead-time so you know what to expect.

The Potomac HP model is the most expensive model but that doesn’t mean it’s the best. The downsides to this model are the thicker frame that can block more like, the cheaper constant force balances compared to upgraded options you’ll see from other companies and the small size of the manufacturer.

Companies local to the DC and Baltimore area will sell these windows for a variety of reasons. One common reason was that Vytex offered a service to their dealers where they would handle the installation while pretending to be employees of the dealer or contractor. Once I was at their plant and overheard a woman calling customers to schedule measurement or installation appointments pretending she was from a local retail window company. From what I’ve heard they no longer offer this service but we have not confirmed that.
Yes. The warranty for Vytex windows is pretty decent. It’s a lifetime warranty like you’ll see from most vinyl window manufacturers. They only cover labor for one year and if the warranty is transferred to the next owner it gets a little more limited. Overall it’s a decent warranty. The risk comes from the small size of their company. If they were to go away a few years after you purchase your windows you will likely have no warranty at all. That’s why we generally recommend working with larger window manufacturers.
