As you can see Jeld-Wen offers a complete line of products.  If you’re considering a replacement window project it is important to note that Jeld-Wen is a new construction company.  As a result, they don’t understand the remodeling customer.  This isn’t just a theory, it’s been my personal experience.

In our experience companies that are focused on new construction projects are not well suited to be in the remodeling business.  They are used to selling windows hundreds and thousands at a time.  This means when you order 20 windows for your home you’re a pretty small fish.  At the end of the day, this attitude can make service issues harder to resolve.

That said, I would probably suggest avoiding Jeld-Wen for a remodeling type of project.  In my experience they just don’t understand that market or that customer.  They’re very familiar with selling to builders who really don’t care too much about quality.  This leads them to produce lower quality products than most remodeling companies.

Ultimately, if your project is a remodeling project there are much better products out there than Jeldwen and we’ll help you find them.  We also have great recommendations for local window installation companies who can help with your project.  It may seem like this process is difficult, but we can help to make it easy.

    I am a homebuilder of 34 years and have only purchased Jeldwyn windows once and once was too many times, the windows are simply a disgrace leek like a sieve and Jeldwyn will not stand by their product, they know there windows are nothing but problems and refuse to replace their product, save yourself a lot of money, time and aggrevation and never never purchase any windows from Jeldwyn.

      Hi Diane, I understand the sentiment. We dealt with them for years and stopped after too many problems. It was a real headache.
