Jeld Wen Builders Vinyl Windows Reviews

Jeld Wen is a pretty well known window and door brand across the United States. While their vinyl windows aren't all that great in my opinion, their doors are actually quite well made. I also tend to like their Aurlast wood windows -- one of the only wood clad windows that carries a lifetime warranty.

I give Jeld Wen Windows a 3.9 out of 5 star rating based on 18 Jeld Wen window reviews via our manufacturing page. This page has links to all the series and models offered by Jeld Wen.

The Jeld Wen Builders Vinyl window is an entry level vinyl window, also known as the Jeld Wen v2500 model, and comes with the following features; double strength glass, a single cam lock, and a fiberglass mesh screen. The sashes on the double and single hung windows tilt in to allow for easier cleaning. The Builders Vinyl window is available as both a new construction and replacement window.

The v2500 Series comes in 3 interior colors, including white, desert sand and almond. The window comes in 5 exterior frame colors, including chestnut bronze, dark chocolate, almond, white and desert sand.

This entry level vinyl window does not offer the sort of quality construction or design that most homeowners should be looking for in their replacement windows. In terms of Jeld Wen products, most consumers would be much better off with the Jeld Wen Premium vinyl window, which should offer increased long term value.
The Jeld Wen Builders Vinyl Window Series gets a 3.7 out of 5 star rating.
