RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

Are these sorts of lists a good place to start researching windows? Or is it better to first decide what type of windows you want/need, then see who has those windows in your area? Where should the "window illiterate" and "clueless homeowner" start? It's such a huge expense!


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

No offense to the poster but several of the folks on that first list are out of business as well as the fact that I wouldn't deal with a majority of folks on that list.

The program is of no benefit to the consumer either.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

Unfortunately using programs and articles like the above will be a good way to stay illiterate and clueless. As wow mentions misinformation abounds in reports like that. Forums like this, local window and door pro's and the like are valuable resources. Just stay away from box stores (HD, Lowes, etc) for advice and places like Consumer Reports, Angie's List, etc for recommendations.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

WoW, I don't think the WVP program is even in effect anymore any way. I simply used it as an objective (as far as the government can be, LOL) starting place for a list of window manufacturers. I only see a few different companies mentioned here and was wondering what other companies are out there IF it even matters when researching. Where is a homeowner supposed to start?


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

Silly question, but I believe nobody on this forum likes Pella or JeldWen products (just picking out 2 companies I recognize)? How can they have sales > $1 billion if they are so bad? We put JeldWen exterior french doors in our house a few years ago, 3 singles and a double. Of course, we bought them at Home Depot. They seemed like the best doors there so we bought them. They seem to be working and holding up well, but how would we know if they weren't, right?


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

millworkman, thanks. So how do you recommned finding loal window/door pros? Any research online seems to lead to "linked" or "paid" websites that refer you to just certain companies. Don't you need to start with a list of the available "population" and than narrow that down? That's why I wanted to creat a "master" list of some type.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

Jeld-Wen and Pella are billion dollar companies because they make and sell a bunch of product at nearly every price point.

Home improvement consumers are usually more concerned about stainless steel and granite than they are about window performance.

Why don't you start out with telling us about your window questions and project?


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

+1. Those lists are hardly comprehensive (there are thousands of window manufacturers in the US), nor do they provide anything in the way of determining whether they offer a good product or not.
Good news is, you are in the right place to do research. The forum here is packed with great info, and objective (mostly) advice from industry pros and other consumers :)

First, establish your goals and expectations for the project, then narrow your choices to material composition, followed by a few specific product choices.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

Thanks, I will start another thread.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

I am getting ready to install new windows. My contractor has recommended Lawson. If anyone has any comment please let me know.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

You would be well advised to start your own thread and post up as many details of your project as you can.


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

I for one think it's interesting information. Buying a window from a company near the top of that list (sales volume) means they are very likely to be around to support their product. And it means over time they have a product that the market as a whole is buying. The bottom, maybe not so much....


 o
RE: Comprehensive List of All Window Companies?

That is one way of interpreting the information I guess.

That being said, several of the companies near the top of that list make what many consider to be substandard products and have very questionable warranty service records.

Prior to picking based solely on volume, you might want to search out the quality and warranty records on those companies.

I can tell you that of the wood windows on that list, I would only buy maybe 2 out of the top 5.

Based on the volume analysis...I guess you could say that McDonalds must be the best choice for a hamburger...?

Most of those companies in the top 20% of volume sellers have huge new construction divisions. If it were not for the new construction windows lack of quality, the replacement market would not exist.
