As we get started with Great Lakes windows reviews it’s important to note that Great Lakes is owned by Ply Gem. They’re a very large manufacturing company which is typically a good thing for a window company. Smaller independent window companies tend to be the ones that go out of business periodically, but the larger more well established companies tend to stand the test of time. Great Lakes windows definitely fall into the category of a company that is likely to be around for a while.
Great Lakes windows come in 3 main lines. They are Uniframe, Lifestyles and Seabrooke. These windows offer most features typical of current replacement windows. There isn’t much that is unique abut them, but they are of fine quality.
One potential drawback to great lakes windows is their dealer network. They tend to have very limited distribution in any given market which means if you want these windows you must buy them from one contractor. That typically means you don’t get the best deal, but that is certainly not always the case.
As with any window model that has limited distribution don’t fall in love. If you think you love the window, but you don’t like the local distributor, don’t buy it. You should never feel forced to work with one company.
