Ellison or Quaker?

We are in the process of building a home and have been spending some time researching the different windows available. Ellison is the one brand that is easily accessible in our area, except there are a number of poor reviews online about them. Even though the reviews tend to be quite old, I don’t seem to find any newer reviews to take into consideration. Quaker is the other window company in our area, but apparently they aren’t the best choice either. Does anyone have any advice for us? Hilley – Consumer – from 2013

Starting with the Ellisons. Yes they are what is considered a lower range window and are manufactured by Atrium. You can’t really go on everything you read, there are so many properties with poor quality work, but they weren’t all spread over the internet. There are also many good reviews, I am sure which didn’t make it onto the web. I can’t really comment on Quaker, I haven’t had much experience with them, though the reports I have got are not that good. Bradley – Installer – from 2013

Windows with Wooden Interior

It’s time for my old 1908 home to enjoy the benefit of new windows. In keeping with the style I am looking for windows that offer a wood interior. There are two window companies that really stand out, the Quaker Brighton and the Windsor Pinnacle. I am really struggling with which to choose as I seem to find they are very similar. Does anyone know if there is another window I should be considering at the similar price? Cindy – Consumer – from 2008

I had Quaker Brighton windows installed some time back and have never had any problems. They offer excellent energy efficiency and noise insulation. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending them. Lary – Consumer – from 2012

Condensation Problems

A few years ago our builder recommended Quaker windows. We didn’t really know much about them but trusted his judgment and went with them. Does anyone know about these windows and whether they are quality? Every winter the windows get condensation on them. Our home only has a forty percent humidity factor during the winter, so I am not sure why the windows are doing this. If you touch them the windows are always freezing. To be honest I think we were taken for a bit of a ride and didn’t end up with the low-e glass we were promised, but just an average double paned window, even the vinyl freezes. What I need to know is whether it’s the windows or whether it was the installation that is causing all these problems? Jackie – Consumer – from 2008

I feel as though I am reading my own story! We made the mistake of installing Quaker windows in our new home and struggle with condensation. Sometimes it gets so bad that the water actually pools below the window. If you feel around our windows you can feel the air leaking, so we called in the Quaker salesman who found that one of the windows had been installed incorrectly. I personally think they are poor quality windows and am going to be looking at replacing them with quality windows in the very near future. Tony – Consumer – from 2008

Poor Quality Windows

When I purchased my home a few years ago it already had Quaker windows installed. It wasn’t long before I started noticing problems with the windows from constant condensation to air leaking and even the screen tabs broke when I tried removing the screens to clean the window. After numerous complaints, all I can say is that Quaker do not care about customer service and don’t expect to get any action from them.
