Viwinco Customer Complaint

Last fall, we had several large Viwinco windows installed in our den. Our den is now noticeably colder than the rest of our home. We replaced the windows so that the room would hopefully be warmer. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Air pours in through them. I contacted the company and someone came out to see them. We had condensation on the inside through the very cold winter, but also ice! I have never in my life seen ice before on the inside of new windows! The company representative returned and put thicker weatherstripping on the windows. It helped, but didn't completely solve the problem. They are simply poorly made windows. The warranty from Viwinco states that moisture on the windows is not a fault of the manufacturer, but rather because of high humidity in the home. I have heard from several people that is not the case. And we know it isn't because our other new windows (from a different manufacturer) do not have this problem. The Viwinco warranty excuses the windows. I would never recommend windows from this company.

Viwinco Windows Reviews

Viwinco makes a lower end window. They're on par with Silverline or MI. If you need a cheap window, they aren't the worst you can do, but if you're going to live in the home for a while, try for something a little better. Oknas or Sunrise, Himark, Softlite, all of them are so much better in terms of performance and looks. Of course, sometimes that just is out of budget, and you have to do what you have to do. Really, you want a window with a u-factor of .28 or lower, a DP rating of at least 50, and air leakage under 0.07. Read addtional Sunrise windows reviews.

Viwinco Cambridge vs Energex Elites

I'm looking at Energex Elites with Advantage glass and Viwinco's Cambridge. I like both of them and I'm not sure which to go for. They both tilt and turn, the main difference is the Cambridge has a single lock and the Elite has a double lock system. The price is similar, and they seem to be about the same as far as energy efficiency. I'm leaning towards the Energex but I'd like more opinions.

[Contractor Response]

The Viwinco is a bargain window. It's designed to be cheap, good for rentals or low-rent properties. Bottom line: the Energex Elites all the way.

Viwinco Windows Reviews

When I talked to a dealer they were pushing Viwincos, but it looked cheap and flimsy to me. There are so many better windows, and you don't have to spend a lot to do better. Even other bargain windows are better than these.

Viwinco Quality

I'd only use them in a rental property or for flipping a house, not one you want to live in. You'll spend more for a quality window, but you'll have lower energy bills and you won't have to replace them every few years. I'd also stay away from Silverline, American Craftsman, and Pella's vinyl lines. It isn't that much more expensive to get a real quality product. Okna, Polaris Ultra, Gorell, Soft Lite, and Sunrise are all extremely good brands.

Viwinco Windows Reviews

I've heard a lot of bad things about Viwincos but I like them. I've seen them in a lot of homes and they look very nice and seem sturdy. I'll probably use them when it's time to replace my windows.

Okna Starmark or Viwinco Cambridge

I think the Starmark wins by a mile. The Viwinco looks good on paper, its ratings are competitive, but they don't last long and they are just cheap and flimsy.

Viwinco Contractor Approval

I like the Viwincos. They have a DP of 50 and have a lot of options. Our local dealer offers a free low-e upgrade, which is nice. The Cambridge is their best line, and they just upgraded their hardware and it looks great. They seem to be a sturdy window, with a 3/4" coil balance and a lock on the bottom sash. I think it's a good affordable option.
