Schuco Windows

In 2008, Schuco windows stopped selling their vinyl windows in the United States. They still sell aluminum frames on the commercial side to builders, developers etc. but they no longer sell residential windows through dealers or distributors nor do they sell on the retail market. For more information, read all of our Schuco windows reviews.

“The lesson to be learned from Schuco selling retail and then switching to selling through window dealers is to make sure your replacement windows are installed by competent contractors or authorized installers. Of course, now the company only sells only to commercial builders, nothing retail.”

History of Schuco Windows

Schuco began selling windows in America around 1998 when they bought a company called Homecraft. They sold through some retail locations (more typical in Europe but not the U.S) and, after a handful of years, decided this was not a good business move. The reason was that some homeowners had performance issues with the product; the result in many cases of improper installation. The company then adopted the American model of selling through dealer distribution channels or window companies. The Schuco experience illustrates what seems to be the case of a well made, high end product that when improperly installed created problems for homeowners. The lesson to be learned is to make sure your replacement windows are installed by competent contractors or authorized installers.

Schuco prices ranged from $350 to $800 fully installed for their vinyl and aluminum windows. Currently there is no information on what their replacement window prices – mostly because the company sells to commercial builders and developers in the United States.

Schuco Windows Pulls Out Of Residential Market

There was definitely some backlash against Schuco by customers and dealers when they decided to stop selling residential windows — mainly because many felt that Schuco continued to sell the windows without telling either the dealers or customers that they intended to cease residential sales. Companies we would recommend as alternatives include Okna, Sunrise, Great Lakes, Milgard and Soft-Lite.
