Weathershield Windows Review #1
I have owned Weather Shield windows for 22 years. I bought them because way back when they had better than average energy ratings. The seals weren’t that great and the windows had a tendency to collect moisture inside the panes during the winter. I will say that the French glass door that was installed at that time has weathered well.

Weathershield doesn’t seem interested in making quality windows and customer satisfaction. The bottom sashes that we had installed didn’t properly fit in the frame. We contacted the company about replacements, but the company just sent out a repair guy to fix the windows. But when he looked at them, he said the installation made the frames bow over time. Save yourself some time, money and frustration and go with a quality window like a Marvin or Andersen window.

Opinion On Their Customer Service
I think the window quality is decent, but customer service leaves a lot to be desired. I’m not much of a fan of their vinyl windows. It feels like their vinyl windows are just something they make to have a foot in that market but don’t offer a good product line. I’d say their high end wood window is a good product. Wood clad as a whole has their issues though — lots of maintenance requirements, but they are very nice to look at. However, with today’s products there is no reason to have wood exteriors, not with all the vinyl and aluminum clad products on the market.

Weathershield Legacy Review
When you compare various companies, you have to recognize that Weathershield has more than 1 line of wood clad windows. Their higher end, the Legacy, is a good offering. But the company has a reputation as a lower end manufacturer so its customeers tend to buy the entry level and then complain about it being an inferior window (which it is). I am not very keen on their standard series, but the Legacy is well built. Personally I would go with Kolbe or Marvin over the WS.
