An Overview of Jeld-Wen Window Company & Their Windows

Jeld-Wen was once known as a manufacturer that made cheap and mid-grade vinyl windows and little else.

It has grown to become a leader in quality and the number, styles and range of windows offered. Jeld-Wen has taken a bite out of the market shares of major wood window brands Andersen, Pella and Marvin.

Most Jeld-Wen window lines/series are available across the continental US.

New Construction vs Replacement Windows

Jeld-Wen takes a both/and approach rather than an either/or strategy.

One remarkable feature of Jeld Wen windows is that all series are made in Replacement Windows and New Construction Windows. That’s unique to Jeld Wen or at least uncommon. Most brands make a few window lines in both options but also make some that are strictly Replacement and others strictly New Construction windows.

What’s the difference?

Replacement windows fit into the opening vacated by the old window. The framing around the window isn’t removed. The siding isn’t disturbed.

New Construction windows have a nailing flange around them. It is used to fasten the window to the outside of the home – the house sheathing. This maximizes the available window opening – more glass, less frame. The flange raises the cost by $10-$20 on vinyl windows and up to $35 on wood windows.

What difference does it make?

As a result, the glass space on, for example, a 36”x48” double-hung replacement window is slightly less than the glass area of the same size and type New Construction window. This is true for all window brands.

The Jeld-Wen Windows Range

Here are key details for each Jeld-Wen window series.

Jeld-Wen Auraline Composite Windows – New

Jeld-Wen enters the composite window market with this new line.

It competes with Andersen Fibrex windows like the Andersen 100 Series and Renewal by Andersen and other wood composite and fiberglass windows. Expect more brands to offer a composite window in the next few years.

These are low-maintenance windows. Auraline comes in 3 colors with matching interiors/exteriors. Colors are White, Black and Bronze.

Types, Styles & Options: The Auraline series is made in 5 styles: Single-hung, sliding, awning, fixed trapezoid and casement.

Warranty: This is a mid-priced window that comes with a 10-year warranty. That’s on the short side for windows, a result of wood fibers in the construction. If water penetrates into the material, it will swell and/or rot. Inspect the exterior of these windows a couple times per year and after storms when there is a chance that wind-blown debris has hit the window frames and potentially scratched through the coating.

*Note that almost all vinyl and fiberglass windows have a Lifetime warranty. The average warranty for wood windows, even those clad on the exterior with vinyl or aluminum, is 10-15 years for most brands.

Main Reasons to Choose Jeld-Wen Windows

Are Jeld-Wen windows any good?

Yes, and here’s why you might want to consider them.

  • A good choice of materials
  • More wood window series to choose from
  • Bay and bow windows in many lines
  • Thousands of showrooms across the country

Jeld-Wen window warranties are also at least as good as the industry average – and better for some products.

1). A good choice of materials

While Jeld-Wen aluminum windows have been discontinued, you still have a lot of options.

They are: Vinyl (5 series), wood (5), wood/plastic composite (1) and wood/vinyl composite (1).

2). More wood window series to choose from

If you’re exploring wood windows, then Jeld-Wen offers the most series of any manufacturer. Each series has its own style – plus custom wood is offered. While none of the wood window series is cheap in cost, you do have options for your budget.

3). Bay and bow windows in many lines

Many brands have one vinyl bay and bow choice, one for wood, etc. They’re generically styled to go with most other series.

However, Jeld Wen bay and bow windows are made in 11 series. If a bay or bow window assembly is in the plans, you’ll be able to find what you want in the same style as the rest of your window package.

4). Showrooms across the country

Locations where you can see, feel and try out Jeld-Wen windows aren’t just “dotted here and there.” Jeld Wen window showrooms are clustered in most major US cities, so you won’t have to drive far to see them. For example, we randomly selected OK City, a midsize metro area. And here’s the cluster of showrooms. There are 24 showrooms within 18 miles of OKC city center. There are even more in major metro areas, and small towns usually have at least a couple options within 25 miles.

Compare Jeld Wen to Pella and Other Top Brands

We could say “compare Jeld-Wen to Andersen windows,” but right off the top, Andersen doesn’t make vinyl windows. However, Andersen’s premium wood window series are unsurpassed in beauty, quality and, yes, the high price they bring.

Pella is a better comparison because the brand manufactures vinyl, wood and composite/fiberglass. So it is similar to Jeld-Wen. Pella’s selection is not as good as Jeld-Wen – in fact, no major brand covers the bases as well as Jeld-Wen.

One edge Pella has is in the premium wood window niche. Yes, Jeld-Wen custom wood windows are gorgeous – but they’re all custom made, obviously, rather than coming in standard sizes like Pella Reserve windows.

Simonton and Ply Gem make more vinyl window series. But they make fewer wood windows.

Marvin makes high-quality windows, but only five series compared to Jeld-Wen’s 12 series. The rest of brands like Alside, Window World, Harvey, Champion and Milgard tend to focus on a small selection and emphasize quality and customer service.

Jeld-Wen seeks to cover all the aspects of shopping for windows, getting help in making the right selection, having the windows installed (DIY is possible too) and service after the sale.
