Editor's Earthwise Window Review
Earthwise Windows are an experiment of sorts in terms of how the company is structured and operates. Earthwise is actually a group of independently-owned manufacturers who are located across the country. Most of these smaller manufacturers buy all of their window parts and asemble themat the local factory and sell them within their regional market. The original impetus for this group was because these smaller regional manufacturers lacked the resources and infrastructure (marketing materials, sales, support, engineers, designers, etc) of the larger national window manufacturers. They therefore banded together under the Earthwise group to take advantage of its branding, product awareness and national presence.
Earthwise Eclipse Review
We chose the Eclipse after our neighbors had them installed in their house and they really liked them and felt like the price was on par with the other estimates they had. We had three quotes, Earthwise Eclipse, the Harvey Tribute window and Simonton Reflections 5500. The Earthwise was cheaper than either one and we are happy with how they look and the installer did a good job from what I can tell.
Earthwise Vinyl Windows
Earthwise is an average vinyl window, nothing special but a few nice features. They have a curved lift rail that looks really good, and colonial beading around the glass. They used to shadow groove the sash corners and I think they quit doing that. It looked really nice. Most windows in that price range, though, have triple weatherstripping and it only has double. Depending on the line of windows you're looking at, some have sloped sills and some pocket sills. I definitely like the sloped sill better. The only line from Earthwise I really like is Innovations. It has a lot of good features and performs well. It might be the only window of theirs that is worth the price.
Earthwise Windows And Doors
I like Earthwise's doors more than their windows. The doors hold up well and look good, but the windows are just mediocre. You can do better for the money.
Earthwise Innovations Windows
I don't like most Earthwise products, but the Innovations line is a good, solid product. They are sturdy and have a ton of great features, and a good design. It's the only thing they make that I would recommend.
Are Earthwise Windows Good
I have to say that the new Earthwise product, the Innovations, is attractive and uses a nice one touch tilt/lock. It is a well manufactured window that uses a foam filed frame and sash, a Duralite spacer and looks to have a 0.24 U-factor, which is impressive.
Earthwise Windows Warranty
The Earthwise vinyl windows warranty comes from the original manufacturer, meaning it comes from the regional company that you purchase from. The windows and doors are warrantied to be free from manufacturing defects as long as the original buyer stays in their home. The warranty is transferrable with a $75 transfer fee, although the windows warranty period from the new owner is only 10 years from the original date of purchase. There are a list of limiations and exclusions that are included in the warranty so consumers should read the Earthwise warranty in its entirety to understand the terms etc. prior to purchasing these windows.
