Wincore Windows

Patriot78November 21, 2011

Does anyone have a review or information on the Wincore 7700 series sold by Sears as Weather beater PLUS/ MAX. I know that the MAX is different since it has a laminate in it. I have about 10 double hung windows, (average size 34 X 58) and one 3 lite 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 slider (72 x 58). I was quoted a price of about 11 K for the MAX windows. The Wincore windows appear to be a fine product but I can't find much information.

I would suggest you find a Wincore Dealer and get another estimate for comparison purposes. Wincore is a decent mid-grade window.

Sears has told me that the advantage of using them is that they have better leverage with Wincore since they order such a large quantity through them. Also, the sales person stated that the windows are in the mid to upper grade of windows of this type. Now I know that this is not the top of the line by any stretch, but could they be considered on the higher end of the middle range? The salesman used the "line in the middle" approach and showed Wincore at about the 3/4 mark or about a "7" on a 1-10 scale. Any further advantage to the MAX window over the PLUS, besides a Lifetime glass package warranty and break resistance? or, should I save a few bucks and go with the PLUS? The salesman recommended MAX at ground level and PLUS for higher level windows.

You really should get in touch with a Wincore Dealer. Sears tends to price their windows on the high side. There are better windows available for much less.

Wincore is average and certainly not in the upper end as some other brands are.
