Wincore 5400 Windows Reviews

Wincore is, in a matter of speaking, an offshoot of Simonton Windows. The company was founded by ex-Simonton executives and makes two replacement windows options, as well as two new construction series.

Wincore Windows receive a 4.2 rating out of 5 stars based on 25 Wincore reviews via the Wincore manufacturing webpage -- use the breadcrumb links above to access this page.

The Wincore 5400 window is the company's standard vinyl replacement window that comes standard with an attractive contoured frame, double pane glass, low E glass and argon fills, a constant force coil spring balancing system, a sloped sill, U channel spacer, cam locks and contoured grids.

The Wincore 5400 series windows come standard in a single hung (not so with the 7700 series). They have five chambers compared to the 7 chambers of the 7700 series. The 5400 series uses a single strength double pane glass (2/32) and comes with a 25 year glass breakage provision.

The window is available in exterior frame colors that include tan, clay, and white. Consumers can choose from a variety of grid options that include Colonial, Prairie and Perimeter. The 5400 also offers three decorative glass options that include a tinted gray, obscure and tinted bronze. The 5400 series is available in a picture, bay, bow, slider, double hung, venting slider, as well as several geometric shapes.
The Wincore 5400 Window Series gets a 4.2 out of 5 star rating.

Wincore 5400 Ratings

The Wincore 5400 double hung with a low E should deliver a U-factor of .34, SHGC of .25 and a VT number of .44. These are not very impressive numbers and consumers might be better served to try to stretch into the Wincore 7700 series for the slightly better numbers offered.

Wincore 5400 Window Warranty

The Wincore vinyl window warranty includes a lifetime provision on all vinyl components against flaking, blistering, peeling or corrosion. Exterior frame coatings are warranted for a period of 10 years. The insulated glass unit on both the 5400 7700 units are warranted for 20 years, after which the company will pay 75% of the replacement cost until year 20 and 50% of the replacement cost from years 30 to 50 after the date of purchase.

The Wincore warranty is transferable to one additional owner, although they must notify the company of the transfer within 30 days and pay a $50 transfer fee. This is a relatively common requirement for a transferable vinyl window warranty. Wincore does not cover any labor cost to remove the window or to have the replacement window installed.

As with all window warranties, the Wincore warranty does include number of limitations and exclusions that we would urge consumers to read in order to more fully understand the provisions included and more importantly what is not covered.

I think the Wincore 5400 is the better deal here. It's not worth the upgrade cost to the 7700 in my opinion. Is this the only bid you have? You might want to grab a couple more just for comparison sake...the Wincore is a solid window though...let me know if you need some suggestions.

Window Comparisons Wincore 5400 and Alside Mezzo

I have been researching windows to replace in our older home that we do NOT plan on reselling; hence, my investment is “life-long”.

However, having said that, I am still on a budget and want to make the best decision as this is a substantial investment. In my research I have not found any glaring differentiations between the 2 above products. When I received quotes last fall, the prices were comparable; however, at least one of the installers (Wincore) has stated that prices have gone up since we met last fall and I’m awaiting that new price. I’m also awaiting any new pricing (if applicable –as that installer didn’t address any potential price increases) of the Alside product.

But again, as of last fall their price quotes were comparable (i.e., nearly spot on), but I’m in need of any information on the products themselves—any differentiation factors that I should be aware of? Any distinguishing aesthetic factors? I read that Wincore 5400 is a bit bulkier (due to energy efficiency). Is that also true for the Wincore 7700? I’m also considering if something happens to the window, the ease with which I would have to call the installer back to resolve any issues.

Appreciate any additional insights you can provide. I have copied myself on the email address above.

Ruby, the bulkier the window often the more energy efficient. The Alside Mezzo always feels a bit flimsy to me and I would go with the Wincore 5400 or better yet the Wincore 7700 over the Alside Mezzo myself. I think it will last longer and the prices should be comparable to one another.

Wincore 5400 Price Quote

I have a 20 year old manufactured home in need of 7 new windows. Sear came out and priced Wincore 5400 and 7700 series. They said it does require more labor to install j channel and extra trim work. But 7 Wincore 5400 $5869 and Wincore 7700 $6960. This was with a 10% off discount if I buy that day (which I did). But I have till Friday to cancel and still get a full refund so decided to do some research as this is a lot of money for me to spend.

Jennifer - Homeowner - January, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Jennifer, sorry for the late reply. That price sounds high to me. Sears often jacks up their prices so I would definitely get some more bids to compare this one too. Maybe the Simonton Impressions 9800 or the Simonton 5500 Reflections series, both of which are comparable windows to the Winocre 7700. Simonton will definitely have a rep in your area if you google Simonton windows in [your city and state].

Wincore 5400 vs. Simonton 5500 Series

Over all which window is better, the simonton dbl hung 5500 series or the wincor 5400 series dbl hung window? Thanks

Carol - Homeowner - May, 2019

Website Editor's Answer

Carol, the Simonton 5500 series is the better window over the Wincore 5400. The upgraded Wincore 7700 series and the Simonton 5500 series are much closer in comparison to one another
