History of Shwinco Windows

Good afternoon Dane, after reading some inquiries regarding Shwinco windows, and they were great questions. I would like to address if I could. Shwinco was founded in 1989 in the Pan Handle of Florida as one of the first vinyl window manufactures. For over 26 years our market area was the Pan Handle , Texas and the Carolinas.

However in 2017, we slowly started to expand to south Florida, being very selective of window dealers to represent the Shwinco products. Unlike our competitors, we do not market through big box stores or distributors that sell to everyone with a pick up truck. Shwinco selects only the best of the best with great honorable reputations. So for many years , we were the best kept secret in South/Central Florida , but that is starting to change.

All of our windows and doors are available as HVHZ, tested to exceed Miami Dade, to include the only vinyl impact window tested to Bomb blast resistance . The Shwinco mission is not to be the biggest but to be the best vinyl impact window and door manufacture. Our dealers agree with that. Contact Shwinco windows at for a authorized Shwinco dealer near you. I’m confident you’ll be glad that you did.

Shwinco Dominator 9000 vs. Wincore Stormforce

Hello Dane, thank you for taking my question. What in your opinion is a better hurricane window for my house in Melbourne Florida. Shwinco Dominator 9000 -series single hung or Stormforce by Wincore 8800 double hung. I am replacing 24 windows and the shwinco are about $4000 more but it is not making sense to me. I hope you can help me on this. Thank you.

Georges, I think both of these impact windows are quite good. I don't know as much about the Shwinco Dominator 9000, but I did take a look at the features and performance, and I was impressed. If this were my project, I would probably make the decision less on the products (which are comparable in my estimation) and switch to looking at the company doing the work. Google both companies and look at the aggregation of ratings and reviews as a basis for how you can expect the installation to go.

Schwinco Impact Windows vs PGT

Hello Dave, I am needing your opinion on hurricane impact windows. The more researching and reading I do the more confused I become. I was thrilled to find your sight during my online time. I live in southwest Florida and would like to replace our single pane PGT windows with impact windows. I have always been a DIY person because I have been burnt by contractors and have little faith in any of them especially in my area.

I have had an estimate done on Shwinco windows from a local company. Seemed like a good product and even with a 30 year warranty I’m hesitant. I to have looked for reviews on there product but cannot find any. With the economy in the shape it is in I am worried about spending a huge chunk of money on windows from a company that could go out of business…and there goes my 30 year warranty. I’m needing 13 windows (some large) and a French door. The company that gave me an estimate also sells PGT but explained that the wait time is about 6 months and that is why they recommended Shwinco. They told us they were better than PGT.

I appreciate any help you can offer!

Randy, I don't hear all that much about Schwinco, but they seem generally decent from the little I know. I put little reliance on warranties because they rarely cover labor costs, which accounts for roughly 35% of the total project cost (unless you are doing DIY of course.) I would think the Schwinco impact windows and doors would be fine IF the installation was thorough and exact.

I have heard of the long lead times on PGT. You might want to take a look at a CWS dealer -- also here are my top picks for storm windows and doors include the Sunrise Coastal Series, Soft-Lite Barcelona Impact Series, Soft-Lite Armor Impact Series, PGT WinGuard Series, Stanek UltraExtreme Series, CWS Windpact Series, and the Simonton Stormbreaker Series.

Shwinco Impact Windows

I am looking at getting impact single hung windows, slider door and french door. I’m getting quotes from several companies.

The last business really was pushing Schwinco and is the only dealer in the county.

Another company prioritized Custom Window Systems.

I have had impact PGT windows in a prior home. What about Simonton Windows?

I live a 1/2 mile from the beach and about 2000 feet from the Indian River on the east coast.

What brand of and series would you recommend?

Shelly - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Shelly, my top picks for storm/impact windows and doors include the Soft-Lite Armor Impact Series, Sunrise Coastal Series, Soft-Lite Barcelona Impact Series, Stanek UltraExtreme Series, PGT WinGuard Series, the Simonton Stormbreaker Series nad the CWS Windpact Series. These are the impact series I would take a close look at if they are available in your area.

Shwinco vs PGT Windows

Looking to get windows, we live in Florida and it seems these are the two options we have to choose from based on quotes from multiple companies. I am being told Shwinco is the way to go over PGT but was hoping for one more opinion. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

Michelle - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michelle, I don't hear much about Shwinco. PGT windows has a good reputation and would be my choice over the Shwinco. PGT and CWS are the two options I hear about the most (with generally positive reviews) in Florida.

Shwinco Impact Windows

Hi Dane, Thanks again for all of your insights. Today we had another dealer in for a quote. They sell CWS and Shwinco. I hadn't heard of Shwinco before and when I search for them online, there isn't much information on them regarding reviews or customer experiences. Are you familiar with them? the sales guy put them above Simonton and CWS. Shwinco doesn't make a large slider, so the dealer would sell us a CWS door, which other dealers did not seem to like.

What are your thoughts on Shwinco?

Background: Merritt Island, Fl, one story concrete block home facing East, with large windows on the front (one large arch picture window, Two extended quarter arch picture windows, one extended arch with large single hung, a large single hung with arch); on the rear there is a three pane slider and standard patio door, elsewhere there are 8 "standard" windows, a French entry door, single swinging door.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Paul, I had never heard of Shwinco, but did a bit of checking and they seem to make a pretty decent impact window. However, when I google shwinco impact window reviews, for instance, I find them mentioned once in a houzz forum. That's it. If they are better than Simonton, why in the history of the company are they mention SO FEW times on any of the applicable forums? It's a red flag for me.

CWS makes a good impact window and door. If you do go with Shwinco, I would at the very least request some references to check how the windows have held up.

I still think the Simonton Stormbreaker Plus is a good impact window at a fair price.
