Viwinco Windows Reviews

Our Viwinco Windows reviews present consumer and industry expert opinions on the company’s most popular series – including the Oceanview hurricane series, Edgemont, Cambridge, and S-Series.

Bottom Line: Viwinco is a solid replacement window brand that often offers some nice value for the price point. While I would avoid their entry level Cambridge, their Edgemont series is a decent buy. I like the Oceanview impact window as an affordable option to some of the more expensive impact windows.

Company Rating: 7.5 out of 10

Viwinco Windows Reviews | Cambridge Series

Hi Bill, my husband and I came across your site and just love all the information you have compiled there, PLUS your expert opinion on the different manufacturers of windows. We went ahead and used the “Find Top Rated Companies Near You” search and got 4 of the below companies to call us back and have scheduled estimates with them.

DK Builders (install OKNA windows), Pinnacle Home Improvement (install Pinnacle Elite windows), ViWinco Cambridge, and Apex Insignia.

We asked Pinnacle Home Improvement what the manufacturer of their window is and they answered that it is Pinnacle Elite which we can’t find on your site. Do you know anything about that manufacturer?

We live in Charlotte, NC area. Our townhome has 9 single-hung builder grade windows plus 7 stationary windows all about 25 years old. Would you mind if we send you our quotes once we get them from these companies to get your expert opinion? Thanks so much.

[Site Editor’s Answer]

Margaret, hi, thanks for getting in touch and thank you for using the site form — it is much appreciated! And yes, you can absolutely send me the bids and I will help every step of the way. I have no connection to any of the companies so I am unbiased in terms of my advise – my only bias is to great value and great quality windows!

Okna windows are great, some of the best in the business. The Pinnacle Elite is, I believe, made by Lindsay Window & Door – but I actually don’t know this for sure (the industry is very weird and sometimes companies throw labels on things that are almost meant to confuse – so bizarre).

ViWinco makes a nice window in the Cambridge – not the best by any means, but pretty solid manufacturer. The Apex Insignia is quite a nice window and a definite possibility at the right price point. The Insignia doesn’t stand up to the Okna 500 or better series.

My advice is to collect your bids and then let’s circle back and consolidate from there. I can also send you my list of recommended brands if you want to see if any operate in your local market…

Double Paned Tilts

I recently had my single panes replaced with double paned Viwinco tilts. The reason I choose them because they looked to my untrained eyes sturdy and the price was right. At the end of the day, I paid $200 each for double hungs that measure 34″W x 44″H. I read some forums that said that the installer was key to replacements so I felt comfortable using a window contractor with over 15 years of experience. Here’s the rub…my new windows are drafty and during the mornings and certainly the winters my house is cold and drafty.

That draft issue is the big problem, but the list is longer than that. If I lift up the bottom sash the top part falls down an inch of so and has to be shut manually. Our house has never been colder — the ironic thing is that we got these to make our house more energy efficient…

Viwinco Windows Reviews

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Viwinco is a low quality vinyl window — not a mid grade window (I guess in my opinion but I think this is a fair opinion). If I were buying a rental property or flipping a home I might consider them. Otherwise, I would stay away from them. It isn’t like Viwinco is alone at the bottom; Xact and Silverline are poor quality in my eyes.

Not to just bash windows companies so let me give you some vinyl window manufacturers that I think make a good product – Gorell, OKNA, Soft-Lite and Sunrise. These companies all make a good vinyl window that will hold up well with proper installation.

Viwinco vs Silverline

I have to disagree with your opinion of Viwinco being bottom of the barrel – to a degree at least 🙂 I think their top line vinyl window is a good mid grade vinyl and I would actually prefer it to Thermastar or a Silverline. I would agree with your assessment of the lower grade vinyl window lines; they are suitable for rentals or flips, not much else. Thanks for your Viwinco windows reviews – nice to get an unbiased opinion for once.
