Weathershield Window Prices
Weather Shield windows prices run $350 to $850 installed for a normal sized double hung window. Their wood windows are quite nice looking, but the company overall seems to get pretty mixed reviews. The company is generally known for their wood windows, not their vinyl window options. They sell several of their products through retail markets and they have been included in the Consumer Report ratings that there are better products out there for the money. Explore more with our Weather Shield Windows Reviews.
Premium Wood Windows
Their Premium aluminum clad wood window is a very nice window that comes in a ton of exterior color options. Comparable to Eagle Window Costs.
Signature Wood Windows
The Signature is also an aluminum clad wood window. Contractors do point to longevity issues with Weather Shield so consumers should find a local company who has a good relationship with the company and a good long term track record before paying for wood windows from Weather Shield or any window company for that matter. Comparable to the Andersen 200 Series.
Aspire Wood Windows
The Aspire is a vinyl clad wood window that comes in a pine interior and 5 different exterior options that are all basically shades of brown with the exception of the white. It uses a plastic sash and tilt tock. Comparable to the Jeld Wen wood windowss.
Weathershield Vision Window Costs
I am in Phoenix and have tow bids from two dealers. The one offered the Weathershield Vision window with a bid of $7,500, and the other the Milgard Tuscany for $5,000. This is for a single patio door and five windows.
Weathershield Aspire vs Signature Costs
Dear Dane and Tim, I have a quote for full replacements for just the two windows that are rotted:
[Site Editor's Answer]
Tom and Michele, it sounds to me like your upstairs windows need to be replaced due to normal damage and rot to the frames over 30 years. If it were me, I wouldn't go with inserts, I'd do full replacements and make sure that any rot or damage was properly handled and replaced during the replacement project. I would also avoid wood windows -- you're going to have the same issues 10 years down the road with wood, which typically only carry a 10 to 15 year warranty anyway (there is a reason the warranty on a wood window is not as strong as vinyl). Wood is an organic material that expands and contracts with the extreme shifts in temperature that are going to occur in Minnesota in the winter. Other materials do as well, but not nearly as much as wood.
EnduraShield Wood Windows
The EnduraShield is a fiberglass clad wood window that received a 79 out of 100 from Consumer Reports, which is quite an impressive score. We are not always sold on how CR does their rating system, but the score is what it is. Comparable to the Milgard Ultra fiberglass windows.
Visions Vinyl Windows
This is Weather Shield's vinyl window line that doesn't get much attention. The principal reason is that wood window manufacturers often pick up a vinyl window line because the product sells so well, but it's an afterthought instead of a focus. Our advise to consumers looking for a full vinyl replacement is to go with a company that specializes in this frame option. Weather Shield is more of a wood window manufacturer. Comparable to Reliabilt 3500 Series.
