Windsor Windows Reviews
May 22nd 2013 at 8:13 am
Windows have several issues: weather stripping falls off, sliding windows don't stay up unless you concentrate on getting the "catch" mechanism in the right place, the screens are cheap and rip at the frame. Otherwise, they seem to be good for heat & cooling maintenance. And, the company seems to have a good warranty and is willing to send a repairman. Just wish I didn't have to constantly call them.

Good builder who cares about quality work. Too bad they picked this window company.

It's all about making sure they are square and operate. No problems except the typical, balance issues(fixable) locks(fixable), weather stripping(fixable),etc.

We purchased a new home and the builder put Windsor Windows in the house. We've had nothing but problems with them. In the winter condensation and ice builds up on the inside of the windows and causes black mold. We have to bleach the windows twice a year due to the mold. Even though we've primed, painted and re-caulked multiple times, the windows are rotting from the outside in. Thirteen years after purchasing our new home, we are faced with the expense of replacing all of our windows.

The builder was fully aware the Windsor Windows they installed in our development were sub-standard. The builder was actually involved in a law suit against Windsor Windows and won. However, the folks they suckered into buying their homes never saw any compensation.

I recently purchased a 7 year old home with around 30 Windsor Pinnacle clad DH windows, the windows were used sparingly by the previous owners as they never even installed the screens and must have lived with the A/C and or heat on year round. Since moving in I've installed the screens and have found many issues with the windows, 6 of them have issues with staying open including 2 that plummet once unlocked. Almost half of them have the top weather stripping valence falling off for no apparent good reason other then they are poorly built. I would not recomend these windows at all.

We love our new windows! They are beautiful to look at besides how much warmer the rooms feel. They operate easily, have the fold down handles so they don't interfere with my blinds and all in all upgraded the look at value of my home.

We are very disatisfied with our Windsor windows. We live in Minnesota and have had ice build up on the inside of the windows. It is not too humid in our home. The ice causes mold on the bottom track of the window. More importantly, we have had 3 inside window panes break. They exploded with glass flying into our home. The outside panel was fine. This is a dangerous problem with children or anyone near a window!

This is a prime example of a company that is only in business to make a buck. They sell a shoddy product and are unwilling to back their product. They have cause untold hard ship and damage to homeowners and repuditable builders across the country. Look on Bobvilla.com for more on this company

I am a builder and made the mistake of using Windsor Windows and Doors on a project of mine. I have had tons of problems with these windows. The Company has been horible to deal with. I have spent over $100k in repairs to the windows and sliding doors. Windsor told me to move forward with the fixes because they did not have anyone in the area to do what needed to be done on the windows and door. They told me to send in the receipts and they would get me reinbursed. It is going on 2 years now and I have not seen one dime from them. Scott Renke, West Division Sales Manager for Windsor and Lou Lang, who is some kind of manager for the company have been horible to deal with. If you are thinking of buying from this company please feel free to email me and i will be happy to forward pictures of how badly these windows have failed. I would not put these windows or doors in a dog house. If anyone else has had problems with this company or it's products please let me know. I would like to go after them as a group.
