 Re: Champion Windows

Author: JD@DWS (---.bhm.bellsouth.net)
Date:   

I've read thru everyones comments on Champion Windows, And I would have to agree that their main frames are fairly solid, however their sashes are not near as strong. I Prefer Great Lakes Uniframe series windows with fiberglass sash and frame reinforcements. My clients prefer the added insulation of r-10 triple pane glass. But enough of stats because the best window in the world wont perform as expected if not installed properly, Has anyone seen some of the finished products these companies are putting out. What good is a lifetime warranty on a window if your house rots down around them. Replacement of your existing windows usualy requires custom cladding of existing exterior moldings, Most Companies simply nail up aluminum based coil and caulk the joints. Well thats your weak point, especialy since caulking is generaly the homeowners responsibility and becomes unsightly fairly quickly. My advice to any homeowners interested in purchacing new windows is to do your windows research, but time invested in actually looking at finished product and installation techniques of the companies your considering will be your best guide.
Just be prepared to to be shocked!
