Jeld Wen Window Prices
Jeld Wen window prices are in the lower end of the market and most contractors agree that they are there in quality as well. They have lines sold in some of the big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes that are designed for a price point, not quality. Their higher priced lines have a better reputation, but still aren't as good as their main competitors. The fiberglass and aluminum windows are outperformed by Marvin and Loewen both make a better wood window. For the more common vinyl, Soft-Lite, Okna, and Sunrise all make a better choice.

Builder's Vinyl Series
The Builder's Vinyl line is sold at Lowe's and Home Depot. It's a cheap budget window, well suited for a rental property or short term solution. The installation makes a big difference in satisfaction. A good installer can overcome a lot of faults in design and manufacture.
Premium Vinyl Series
Builder's Wood Series (Vinyl Clad)
Jeld Wen's Builder's Wood line is a vinyl clad builder's grade window. An entry level window, it is priced to appeal to builder's and so has the same faults any low end model has - lower quality manufacture and poor design. The Marvin Integrity is higher priced, but a much better window.

Builder Series (Aluminum)
Jeld-Wen's Builder Series is a low-end aluminum clad window that mainly sells to builders and contractors. Homeowners looking for a replacement window would be advised to move up to the Siteline or Custom Wood windows from Jeld-Wen.

Sitelines are a good, sturdy window for a low price. With the nailing flange included in the extrusions, they are stronger and do well in new construction. They come with a better-view screen and have a good warranty.
Custom Wood Series (Aluminum)
This used to be called the Pozzi Series. One of Jeld-Wen's better lines, it features an aluminum clad wood interior. The wood is treated with Auralast, so it looks good for a long time. This is definitely one of the companies better offerings.
