Sierra Pacific Windows Reviews warranty prices and more

If you’re looking for Sierra Pacific windows reviews you’ve come to the right place. Sierra Pacific is a manufacturer of wood, vinyl and aluminum clad wood windows.

They are a little different than most manufacturers in that Sierra Pacific Windows is owned by Sierra Pacific Industries which manages over 2 million acres of timberland in the Pacific Northwest. That means they have a lot of access to lumber from which to make their wood windows.

There are a wide range of options available and we’ll be reviewing all of them.

Is the Sierra Pacific window warranty any good?

In short, it’s pretty decent. On the wood windows you get a 20 year warranty on the wood material and 20 years on the seals in the glass. The warranty on the aluminum cladding will vary based on the type of cladding.

The labor warranty on Sierra Pacific windows is 2 years which is a little shorter than some other west coast window companies, but I’d say that’s still perfectly decent.

On the other hand, the warranty on the Sierra Pacific vinyl windows is not as good as you’d see from many other manufacturers. We tend to spend a lot of time on vinyl windows here and this warranty is just shorter than most. You get 20 years on the vinyl frames and only 10 if used in a commercial setting. Seal failures are only covered for 20 years and glass breakage coverage is shorter still.

What’s the bottom line?

Sierra Pacific makes perfectly fine windows. If you were my buddy asking me which windows to buy Sierra Pacific might be an option for a wood window but would probably not be an option for a vinyl window.

How can you find a great window company?

    After having Sierra Pacific windows installed in our new home in 2018, we discovered water running across our kitchen floor after a downpour. We suspected it came from the windows, but of course, by the time we contacted the Sierra Pacific (Ace Hardware) seller, the storm was over and the floor was dry. This happens at least twice a year when we get a heavy downpour. The latest was in August 2022. Suddenly, the electrical breaker kicked in our kitchen. Removing the electrical outlet below the window, we could see water running down through the outlet and coming out under the cabinets on the kitchen floor. Checking our windows, we’ve found 6 out 16 windows all have leaks between the glass and the wood frame. To say the least, we’re not happy!

    After our gorgeous wood windows were destroyed by wind and hail, I spent more time than necessary looking for a perfect replacement.

    We settled on Sierra Pacific, waited 4 months to get an estimate, paid our deposit, only to learn 11 months later — they cashed our check but never ordered the windows.

    19 months after we picked those babies out, we proudly stood in the front yard, marveling at their beauty.

    Until . . .

    Winter came and cold air blew through the bottom corners of every sash.

    Spring came and 75 mph gusts swirled red dust through our house.

    I’ve tried multiple calls and texts to the local company that installed them. They’ve come out to see for themselves and acknowledged there’s an air leak in every window.

    It’s important to note it’s not an installation problem, it’s a manufacturer defect on the sash. Something is missing inside the window— you can shine a flashlight through the sash corners into a dust filled gap

    Months keep dragging by. No window rep. No help. Just a whole lot of dirt sneezing, red eyes and raspy voices.

    So, I’m taking this gig online to see if I can get some attention.

    Message me if you want the name of the local company that sold us the windows.

    It’s the gray insulation strip seal that was cut short on both corners. Mine were replaced by manufacturers tech rep on 15 Transcend sash kits in January’23.

      They came out and “fixed” them. The air leaks are still there. There is a 30 degree difference from bottom corners vs top corner, which has no air leak.
