Atrium windows have been around for quite a while. They have been primarily focused on new construction products. As was the case with many companies producing products for the new construction market, Atrium went through a difficult time in financial crisis of 2008.
They are backed by the private equity firm Golden Gate Capital and the company has turned around their finances in recent years. While the Atrium Windows is still very focused on new construction they do offer a full compliment of replacement windows.
We’ll be reviewing the following models from Atrium Windows:
- Series 8900
- Series 8700
- Series 8300
- Series 8100
- Series 8050
- Series 5700
- Series 700
- Series 450
As you can clearly see the naming system from Atrium windows leaves a little to be desired. This is often the case when new construction companies enter the remodeling market. They’re used to selling to architects and builders who love numbers. When you produce a remodeling product your customer is the individual homeowner. In order to make the product line easier to understand for someone who doesn’t work in the industry most companies will use names rather than numbers for their products.
Of course the names don’t matter much when you’re trying to determine the quality of the product, but it does show that the manufacturer doesn’t really understand their customers.
