Wincore Windows Reviews

wincore windows reviews

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.

We’ll be providing detailed Wincore windows reviews on the following replacement windows:

  • 5400 Series
  • 7700 Series

We’ll also be providing Wincore windows reviews on these new construction options:

  • 400 Series
  • 500 Series

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.

What’s the bottom line on Wincore windows?

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.

    I’m back to update on my ONE year ago comments, on wincore 500 in my brand new built home. STILL getting the run around from wincore rep. STILL have ICE building up all over the locks and sash area. Yes I can feel the cold air rushing in…..yes they came out and checked my home humidity levels and yes they tell me it’s environmental, although my numbers read good.
    They did SEND ME, TO INSTALL, (which SUCKED!!!) some plastic chimney type pieces, balance covers, to “divert the cold air coming in from the drain holes outside”. so far winter has been mild, so no ice yet, BUT SASHES STILL HOLDING WATER AND GROWING MOLD! must clean daily and NO CURTAINS CAN BE HUNG!!! I have a custom wood interior shutter/blinds man on hold, because I cannot put any window coverings on my brand new home because of these leaking, junky wincores! And yes, a professional carpenter Installed them! The wincore rep checked all the specs for level and plum, all was good on the Install side….
    THEN, AFTER NO RESPONSE FROM REP FOR MONTHS….I got a text saying he is in the hospital and there is nothing else wincore can do for me!!! Really??? So,The only reason I chose these windows in the first place was beacsue my lumber yard salesman told me they had the best warranty…..so….here we go…
    I called the main office today and asked about a NEW REP IN MY AREA??? she took notes and said the grandson of my rep was the new rep…ok….well just somebody call me and give me a final answer so I can get my wood blinds intalled OR come get your trailer park windows out of my house!

      They do not keep there word on anything, they put out a less then satisfactory product. They only care about getting there numbers They don’t care about the actual quality of the window . They probably didn’t properly fabricate your weep holes or it would drain fine. They use a paint pen to color The 77 window

    Wincore windows are a complete disappointment. I purchased over 20 8800 series impact windows. They are draftier than the broken 20+ year old vinyl ones that were removed. Cold and hot air comes rushing in between the upper and lower portions and around them. There are excessive gaps between the frame and the sashes. The impact sliding door is even worse than the windows. ALSO, all the product make a tremendous amount of noise in the window. They whistle and squeal, driving us nuts during the day and wake us at night.

      Have you talked to the company that installed them, is there anything they can do to help with those issues?
