Weather Shield Windows


Recommended Posts

I inspected a house last week with Weather Shield brand windows installed. The windows were a hybrid with vinyl exteriors and sills but wood sash. Unfortunately, the bottom sash on several of the windows had rot damage. The sills were a type that acted somewhat as a trough to hold moisture. Added to that fact is the problem that the weatherstrip at the bottom of each sash didn't raise it out of the water and the wood wicked up moisture. Honestly, it's such a stupid way to build a window I couldn't believe a national manufacturer would do this. This is the first home where I have seen this window used, and I'm wondering if it is a known problem with this brand. While I am familiar with the brand from seeing advertising it has an extremely small local market share. Has anybody else seen this problem with this brand?
