Feldco Sophia Series vs. Sunrise Standard
We have a 1920s house outside of Chicago and we have a bid to replace 24 windows and an entry door. Feldco gave us an estimate that came to $17,000 on their Sophia window series. I wasn't sure if this was a good window or not.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Brian, I don't hear much about Feldco, but I know they have a strong presence in Chicagoland. The Sophia series is pretty good so I wouldn't necessarily rule it out.

Feldco Windows And Thermal Industries
Feldco actually relabels the Thermal Industries window that uses a pocket sill design, which is a less desirable design feature than the true sloped sill that does not let the water drain through the window frame itself. The Thermal Industries window is not a bad window at all, but its nowhere near the top of the best replacement windows out there. The bottom line may be to get a bid from Feldco and then a few others to compare and contrast how the cost and quality compare.
Feldco vs Champion Windows
Right now I'm looking at Advanced Windows, Feldco, and Champion, and I can't see any real differences between them. They're all nice windows, but a little out of my price range right now. I'm probably going to go with Crestlines, they seem to be decent and have most of the same features as the premium brands. I'm sure there's a reason they're cheaper, but it's a big savings. It's hard to justify spending that much more.
Feldco Sales Tactics And Service
We replaced our windows with Feldco and like a lot of other consumers that I can find, we felt like the sales people were a bit pushy, especially at the get-go. They made us put a sign in front of our house for a discount which felt a little weird but in the end it was fine. The Feldco windows weren't the cheapest out there, but we felt like it was a quality window nonetheless and they had a nice financing plan in order for us to get going with the project as soon as possible.
Feldco Window Complaint
I ordered 16 windows from Feldco and it took six weeks for them to arrive and two of them were broken. It is now been two months and none of the replacement windows have been shipped out. The windows that are installed seem to be letting in cold air, especially in the downstairs. The upstairs windows seem to work just fine.
Feldco Window Project
We recently had 10 windows replaced by Feldco and we thought that they did an excellent job. My only complaint would be that our salesman pulled one of those the price is good for the next 48 hours deal and then the price goes up. (See our article on replacement window sales pitch for more information) I told him we had three companies bids for the project and gave him some of the details and he softened up quite a bit.
Feldco Windows Complaints
Although it's been in business for about 30 years, about 5 or 6 years ago the owner sold the company. They don't make their own vinyl windows. They used to buy from Accuweld and now they get them from Thermal Industries. I've heard a few complaints about them but I think they have good service overall.
