Jeld-Wen Window


I built a house 10 years ago using Jeld-Wens SeasonShield window.

I have had an interior window pane break. They warranty for only one year on this type of break so I have to fix this on my own. Is there any options on the table to have this unit built locally or am I better off getting them to supply the glass?

This is a fixed window and broke in the middle of the night in my bedroom. It scared to crap out of me. The rep said that "these things happen".

I hope this doesn't become a winter thing

Thanks guys,

Tom

Have you tried to see what a replacement glass unit will run from them? A good glass shop that makes themo units can do it too. Not to hard to replace. But JELD-WEN would be the best as they can make the to fit right just off the model number.

Randy,

Thanks for the reply.
I just received a quote for material and labor.

$65.00 for the window
$192.00 for the labor.

I think this is a fair price.
When I called a local glass shop and discussed thermal windows I heard the "what's you talking about" thing from the lady on the other end.

Good expansion to break it like that.

Ask JW for cost on a Glass replacement unit. A lot of times they will do it cheaper than a glass company will and you will get the same unit as you had before.

TLH,

I failed to mention the above number is from JW.
The lady asked for me to measure the window frame on the interior. She said there had been some "changes"
I'd hate to think they arrive to switch out the glass and find the replacement was made too big . So much for shop drawings

For that amount, I would let JW do it. Their windows suck to replace, as they use a seemingly self healing silicone. I would pull the stops though and measure the actual glass. They will know the overall thickness.

Agree, pull the stops, measure the glass. If you want to measure the overall thickness, use a something that will slip between the glass and frame, like a piece of aluminum trim and mark and measure. That will allow you to see if they are coming close to the same size.

I replace glass and something like that with mutton bars and annealed double pane with argon gas would be $275 installed, just to give you an idea of what it goes for if that helps any. GL

Re: Jeld-Wen Window


I had same thing happened to a 30 x 60 JW casement, couple months after their "warranty". ( I installed 9 windows in my own house) I will not recommend a JW window ever again!. I been in the buisness for 30 + yrs, and never had a problem with warranty's form any company. ( Duraco, All Weather, Kolbe & Kolbe, Lowen ect. ) & JW sealled units SUCK to replace ! My local lumber yard did replace the unit on good will ( my son is yard manager!).
I am just glad it wasn't a clients , because I would have had to "eat" all the costs . JELD WED WINDOWS NKG!
