Do not buy Jeld Wen products - very poor quality
doors and windows
BEND, OREGON -- We did a massive overhaul of our house in 2006-2007. Thought we were doing all the right things. Our contractor recommended Jeld Wen for our door and windows, suggesting a very good quality product at a lower price. Wow, not even close. Very poor quality. There are tons of problems with windows and doors, the worst of which is drafts. How every single brand new window and door can produce a draft is beyond me. And we are talking about drafts from every conceivable area of the window. I've done my best to add additional weather stripping, but that doesn't even begin to stop the leakage. Just after our addition was completed, we came across a review of our windows in Consumer Reports. CR slammed these windows as inferior, poor quality windows. I am angry at my contractor for his recommendation. I am more angry at Jeld Wen for producing such a crappy product in the marketplace.
