Opinions on Weathershield Visions 3000 windows?

Posted by renbelle (My Page) on

Anyone have experience with Weathershield Visions 3000 vinyl double hung replacement windows? We backed away from wood windows due to price, and these have been recommended to us as a good vinyl option. The following looks appealing to us:

* The specs look good (multi-chamber, warm spacer, U rating, SHGC esp. with Zo-e 5 glass, etc.).

* Offer a simulated divided light grill -- which is a requirement for us

* Clean looking design / frame

Wondering about the following though:

* Do they perform well over time (infiltration, color stability, operation, etc.)?

* Zo-e 5 glass has a low light transmittance rating and a pretty noticeable tint. Is this just how it is with all energy efficient windows?

Thanks for any insights / experiences / comparisons you can share.

I only have experience with the Weathershield Wood and Vinyl New Construction and my experience is not good!

Thanks asfa. Can you fill in some details on your experience? What were the issues?

RE: Opinions on Weathershield Visions 3000 windows?

Poor construction(no quality control). Customer service lacking severely.

Visions Pro=does not charge extra for custom sizes. ZoE Shield glass is outstanding. Ivory color is rare. Visions cons=no Clay color available. SDL bar only available in 7/8" width. Customer service has been suspect in past, but seems to be getting better. Depends a lot on the local dealer. Also look at the 2000 series(different look).
