Thoughts on vinyl sliding patio windows and Jeldwen brand please
Want to replace a 40 year old aluminum 6/8 slider that opens onto deck. My builder has provided some options. Best price is a Jeldwen all vinyl for under $1000. Anderson makes a cheap wood/vinyl for couple hundred more. Anybody have experience with the all vinyl in this size? Also, are Anderson and Jewlden roughly comparable in the low end priced products? Seem to be a lot of bitter reviews on the net regarding both, but maybe its just that the unhappy ones post more? Thanks.

Have you seen any GOOD reviews? Po)

Personally, I'd look hard for aluminum framed.

Thanks Danger Mouse. Forgot to mention...can get a Jeldwen aluminum clad over wood for around $1600. Do you think this would be better than all vinyl or vinyl clad? No, can't recall any really positive reviews for doors and windows from the big box retailers. Leaning to Jeldwen because they'd come from small local dealer my builder does considerable business with and maybe better support if needed.

I've seen all kinds of problems with vinyl doors and windows. Mainly due to poor quality.
If I had the money, I'd go with the aluminum clad.

Thanks DM. Aluminum clad is just within budget and probably will go that route. Have a good evening.
