Kolbe and Kolbe Windows Reviews

kolbe windows reviews

Kolbe and Kolbe windows have been produced in Wisconsin for years.  The company started in 1946 and has been growing ever since.  Today Kolbe windows produces a range of quality window and door products.

Here we’ll be offering reviews on all Kolbe windows.  There are 6 main product lines including:

  • VistaLuxe Collection
  • Ultra Series
  • Heritage Series
  • Classic Series
  • Windquest Series
  • Latitude Series

Kolbe windows are available with a variety of options a finishes.  They are available for new construction and remodeling projects.  Their wood windows are available with aluminum cladding on the exterior or in an all wood design which is idea for historic properties.

While Kolbe windows is a smaller manufacturing company they have a reputation for providing quality products and a track record that is hard to beat.  Kolbe windows may not be the most inexpensive option you’ll see they do produce a quality product that should last a very long time.

Traditionally based in the midwest, Kolbe recently purchased Pointe Five windows in Colorado.  This is a sizable expansion and gives Kolbe a gateway to the west coast.  It would be reasonable to assume that this acquisition points to Kolbe’s desire to expand their presence outside of their typical coverage area.

Be sure to check back as our Kolbe windows reviews are updated.  In the meantime you can find detailed replacement windows reviews here and you can find common window sales tricks to avoid here.

So, how should I decide who to work with?

The window business is challenging, that’s for sure. Every company says they’re the best and they all say that everyone else is horrible. It can feel difficult to navigate, but luckily it’s really not that hard.

I always suggest starting with a company with a good reputation and a solid track record. Then listed to what they have to suggest. Ask any questions about it, ask about options both more expensive and less expensive. When you feel like they’re offering a reasonable value that fits your needs you should buy it.

It is not a good idea to fall in love with a window brand before yo’ve found someone to install them. That said, you can find the best window reviews on the internet right here.

To try to help in that regard we’ve compiled a list of great companies all over the country. We may not know anyone in your neighborhood yet but it doesn’t’ hurt to ask. You can find our list of the best replacement window companies right here.

    Has anyone bought their vinyl replacement windows? They appear to offer dissimilar glass (if you dig thru their Acoustic Ratings page) which I’m interested in. I’m assuming vinyl won’t rot.

    Replacement Double Hungs Insulated Glass, 5.7mm – 3.1mm

      Hi Dave, did they tell you what the STC rating was for the option you’re considering? That’s the easiest way to compare sound transmission.

        Hi thewindowdog,
        the Kolbe Acoustic Data page (link was in my original post) shows all the STC ratings. The data is separated by window series. The first series is Forgent, which isn’t exactly vinyl but that’s where I found “Replacement double hungs.” Going by the STC rating, and then Glass type, the one with two different glass measurements implied to me that it’s dissimilar glass. Before contacting them, I checked their site for availability in my State, then came here for reviews. If their product and/or warranty are not good, no point in contacting them.

    Currently Kolbe is having problems with their glass supplier and can give no update as to when you may get your Windows. My windows are now two months past when they were supposed to be delivered and they will still give no update as to when they might be arriving. Do you not order from Kolby at this time.

      That’s interesting info. I wonder if there’s more going on. Did they tell you which glass manufacturer is causing them problems? Generally every window companies gets their glass from the same several suppliers so a problem affecting them would also be affecting many other companies.
