What are Jeld-Wen Windows?
Jeld-Wen is one of the largest window companies in the country. They offer a wide range of window and door products including vinyl, wood, and aluminum. In fact, you have probably seen Jeld-Wen products on the shelves of your local home improvement store. There is, however, something you should know about the business…
Jeld-Wen specializes in budget windows for new construction projects, not high-quality replacement windows.
Why does it matter?
If you aren’t familiar with the design of new construction windows, they feature a special “fin” allowing you to nail the windows directly into a home’s wood framing. Because of this design, you can only use these types of windows on new construction homes, home additions, or if you are planning to remove the exterior material of your home. If this isn’t the case for you, and you’re like most Southern California homeowners who just want to replace their home’s windows, you certainly need replacement windows. This is because replacement windows fit into the same opening space as your old windows. An exterior flange covers the old frame so the replacement windows look as if they had always been a part of the home.
While Jeld-Wen does make replacement windows and doors they are not the company’s main focus.
As such, most of Jeld-Wen’s business comes from home builders and big-box stores that buy windows by the thousands. If you as a homeowner were to buy Jeld-Wen replacement windows and you experience a problem with them down the road, it may be hard to get the customer service you need. Just check out all of the negative reviews from frustrated homeowners! They wanted stylish, durable, and low-maintenance windows and doors but instead fell down the warranty rabbit hole.
If not Jeld-Wen, who?
The better option is to go with a window manufacturer that specializes in home replacement windows, such as Anlin Window Systems. This is our preferred replacement window brand at Metropolitan High Performance Windows, and we recommend their Anlin Catalina and Anlin Panoramic series to many of our Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego County replacement window customers.
Anlin replacement windows are made with high-quality materials, with the latest in energy-saving technology. They offer multiple styles so you are sure to find windows that will suit your style and home well. Anlin products are very durable. What we like most about working with Anlin for replacement windows is that they truly stand behind their products if there ever is a problem with them. This can’t be said of all replacement window manufacturers.
We’ve been working with Anlin for many years now, and our replacement window customers love their products and we love how easy they are to deal with on warranty issues. Give us a call or contact us through our website to schedule a free in-home estimate or to learn more about the replacement window and door products we offer at Metropolitan High Performance Windows. We look forward to hearing from you!
