The Bad

  • Limited Warranty 
  • Undisclosed Prices 

Limited Warranty 

Compared to other window repair and window replacement companies, JELD-WEN doesn’t offer the best warranty programs for their windows. Their warranty programs offer 10 years of full coverage, while most other companies offer at least 20-year warranties. 

Undisclosed Prices 

Unfortunately, JELD-WEN doesn’t disclose prices on their website. This might make it difficult to discern if this company is the right fit for your budget. 


The Bottom Line

JELD-WEN has been in business for over 57 years, allowing them to develop a strong brand that customers love and trust. They offer a wide variety of products, which makes it easy to find exactly what you are looking for. If you ever have a problem or a question about your products, the company provides several resources to help you find answers and solutions. Additionally, JELD-WEN's customer support team is determined to make your experience simple and stress-free. However, if you are looking for a company that offers a strong warranty program, you might need to look somewhere else. Also, undisclosed prices might make it difficult to find products that are in your budget.

We custom ord'd a Jeld -Wen window via phone - the sales rep helped us measure the window correctly and then gave us the best options to make a decision on. The window itself was very well made and we've noticed its much quieter than what we replaced. Perfect fit, took ~2 months to complete the order. We're thrilled.

All windows and sliding doors in my new home are from Jeld-Wen. They work flawlessly and are easy to slide. Build quality and color selection is awesome too. I've showed my special large sliding door to friends and recommended Jeld-Wen. I'm planning to replace another window with either sliding or accordion style door.

We built our house 13 years ago and installed Jeld-Wen windows. I could not be happier with not only the look of the windows, but the quality and the overall way in which they help to regulate the temperature in our home. I will never use any other manufacture other than Jeld-Wen. Thank you Jeld-Wen!

In researching for some window ideas I contacted their customer service department and they answered all my questions. The window I purchased exceeded my expectations with quality, durability and even has blinds built in that made the purchase even better.

after our house fire we had the huge task of purchasing windows for a rather large house. we had never heard of this company but ended up using them. I feel we were provided a great quality product at a fairly competitive price. 10 years later im still very happy with our Jeld Wen purchase.

We got these windows in our new house. I love the way they look. Our bills have been a good price. Not sure if it's the windows? But we have been happy with them.

I would never purchase another Jeld-wen window in my lifetime. Their warranty Department is horrible. Don't trust Misty. The windows came damaged and they leak horribly. I was told a year ago someone would come out and repair my windows. Been given the run around!

I have had Jeld Wen windows in my basement for 12 years and they are like new. Color hasn’t faded and they slide perfectly.

As a contractor I've installed many windows and these are really easy to install. They are a great window for your money.

We custom ordered a french door from Jeld-Wen and love the result. It's beautiful and fit perfectly in the frame.
