Gilkey Windows Reviews

It’s been almost a year since we got our windows. The gas bill did go down by almost a third but they are so fiddly. Sometimes I have to open and shut them several times to stop the whistling where some air is getting through. The sound is really annoying even though it only happens when the wind is blowing hard. I also had problems with the installers. They were supposed to be from Gilkey but they didn’t have uniforms or marked vans or anything and that made me feel it was fishy.

Generally A Good Product

I’ve worked with a lot of different window products and Gilkey makes a good product. Customers are usually quite happy with them and they’re great energy efficient windows. The one thing I don’t like them is the Heat Mirror feature. It does help keep energy costs down but when it’s really hot it can distort the view.

A Strudy Window

Gilkey makes really good products. I personally don’t like Heat Mirror, but if lowering energy costs is the most important thing then you might like it. The best part is how sturdy they are. The System Boreal design isn’t the most attractive I’ve seen, but I think it’s rated for hurricane force winds. It certainly won’t fall apart and leak quickly like some bargain windows. They also offer a really good warranty and have good sales people. Both of those things tend to turn a lot of potential customers into buyers.

Consumer Recommendation

I have Gilkeys in my home. I’ve never had any problems with leaks or anything, even after hard rains. I think most leaks and drafts are put in wrong, cause even a poorly made window shouldn’t leak if it’s sealed and caulked well. I would recommend these windows to anyone.
