Editors Trimline Window Review

Trimline is a regional wood clad window manufacturer, with their corporate headquarters in Pennsylvania. They are often times sold in building supply houses, as well as in local lumberyards and through select dealers and distributors. In general, they seem to get good marks on the quality of their products and their customer service. They have had a few warranty snags, according to some, see below.

At the outset, let me say that I have very little experience with Trimline, so I hesitate to say much either good or bad. I have seen some forum posts where the contractors who have used them were impressed with the quality and construction.

Trimline Windows Warranty

There was some talk of Trimline warranty issues a while back, but it's tough to find a wood window manufacturer who doesn't have warranty issues in the past. In fact, this is one reason why consumers should be wary of buying wood clad windows in the first place - the manufacturers provide a 10 to 20 year warranty (as opposed to lifetime with most vinyl and fiberglass), which says something about what they think about the longevity of their products.

Trimline Windows Prices

From what I can tell, they seem to be on par with Marvin and Andersen in terms of quality. Perhaps a bit less expensive than these big name brands but I would suspect that Trimline windows cost will be only a bit less than what you would pay for comparable Andersen or Marvin windows.

Trimline Aluminum-Clad Wood Windows

Hi there - I appreciate any guidance you can offer. I need to replace (at least) two double-hung aluminum-clad wood windows. Would like them to match as well as possible the original Malta windows. (I think that was the brand, now out of business.)

One contractor said Trimline is good quality, comparable to Marvin, Anderson, Pella, but without paying their inflated prices.

What can you tell me about Trimline aluminum clad wood windows, and what their standard size DH windows cost, installed?

Any other high quality makes I should look at here in Maryland?

[Site Editor's Answer]

From the very little I know, Trimline is a decent quality aluminum clad wood window. If the pricing is significantly lower than the big players, i.e. Marvin, Anderson, Pella then you might want to consider them. Keep in mind that all these manufacturers make an entry level, mid range and premium model so make sure you are comparing apples to apples when you get the bids. Jeld Wen makes a wood window with an aura last treatment that carries a lifetime warranty that might be worth a look.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I hear lots of bad stories when it comes to wood windows, mainly that the wood rots or warps in years 10 to 20. There are lots of reasons for this, but lack of maintenance is high on the list. There are now some high quality vinyl windows that use an interior laminate that mimics the look of wood pretty well.

These top tier vinyl windows blow the doors off wood windows in terms of performance, warranty, cost and maintenance. You want to take a look at one or two before you dive right into wood clad windows. Some brands include Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Okna, and Polaris.
