Jeld Wen V 2500 Series Reviews

Jeld Wen is a pretty well known 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 option -- one of the only wood clad windows that carries a lifetime warranty.

The Jeld Wen V 2500 Series, also known as the Builders Vinyl series is an entry level vinyl window, 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 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 V 2500 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 series, which should offer increased long term value.
The Jeld Wen V 2500 Series gets a 3.2 out of 5 star rating.
