Wincore is a relatively new replacement window manufacturer based in West Virginia. Wincore was founded in 2007 by a group of former executives from Simonton Windows. They currently produce 2 lines of replacement windows and 2 lines of new construction windows.

Beyond these Wincore windows reviews we’ll also be looking at the Wincore windows warranty. The basics of the warranty are pretty strong. There are a few drawbacks and it appears the warranty is structured to avoid claims in the first place.
For example, it says that in the event of a warranty claim the products will be inspected, then the replacement products will be produced (if necessary) for you AFTER you ship the old products back to the company at your expense. That’s a strange one that we haven’t seen before.
Beyond that the warranty is pretty standard. If doesn’t cover glass breakage and the insulated glass warranty is prorated after 20 years.
The cost of Wincore vinyl windows can vary quite a bit. There is nothing remarkable about the products, so we wouldn’t recommend paying a premium for them.
Bottom line, these appear to be fine windows, but the manufacturer is relatively young. The warranty is ok, but not fantastic. We wouldn’t fall in love with these windows, but if they’re offered by a reputable company at a great price there’s nothing specifically wrong with them.
