Rated 5 out of 5Â by AMerc This window made my kitchen
FIRST: DO NOT TRUST THE ROUGH IN DIMS. they are just inaccurate. By like 3 inches. I ripped out an entire wall to put in this window and 2 single patio doors. I made the openning 97.75x49.75 and when the window arrived (allow 2 weeks for it to arrive if you can't pick it up in store - and hefty shipping charges - but you will get some useful wood from the crate it's in) I measured it and sure enough the openning was too big (better than too small, but still). I shoved a 2x4 on either side and a 2x4 and a 1x4 on the bottom of my openning and the window fit beautifully (I could have fit 2 2x4 on the bottom but I opted to make it a little easier to install). Comes with an integral nailing fin. and you can look up the directions for installation on the jeld-wen website (I've included instructions below). A heat gun makes the installation SO much easier especially when it's snowing outside. Everybody who was a part of this window's installation or even looking at my plans said I would never love the window as much as all the work I put into designing/executing my new kitchen around it. When they see it now they are converted. The thing is amazing. Only downside? I never realized how much heat my old windows let in when the sun shone on them....this one does not let the heat in with the light....I like the heat - but it is a testament to just how energy efficient this window is.
I included some pics and products you may need to make it easier. Happy renovating!
To find instructions: under jeld-wen website click "pro-center" >"find technical documents" and this is a window, vinyl, builder's vinyl, sliding and click installation/finishing PDF. Choose the one with integral nailing fin. should be called JII001.pdf

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Vichamr Good Window, For The Price
This is a good window for the price. If you can afford more I would definitely recommend something a little better. The dual pane center window flexes quite a bit when pushed on, like the glass used is very thin. Also the window locks are all plastic, so in terms of security and longevity they're not great. The window looks good and there are no air leaks that I've found, so it serves it's purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KimV We love the slider, it let's in so much more air. The install was a "breeze"
The window looks great, provides good light and allows for good air flow. The install was very easy. The shipping was great, although it would have been nice to save the money on the shipping charges and have the window delivered to the store. We plan on ordering another smaller slider window for our family room.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rich pretty pretty good
My order at builder included replacing eleven windows throughout home. This model was for a dining room and another in the den/AV room. These vinyl windows sat outside for several days in AZ sunlight prior to installation. We found that the sun and weight of unit sitting on a pallet as delivered resulted in some bending or loss of straight line along bottom edge at window frame. This created an extra installation challenge which builder adjusted for and tweaked. So recommend storing inside garage or in shade within desert locales.One of these units on south of building faced monsoon arrival, too. We found on review that the weep system was inadequate for microbursts, but JELD-WEN's warranty tech came out and modified unit with addition weep holes. During this interview, I discovered professional series was also available but not found in Home Depot's online inventory. He referred to this as "builder's grade," which is step down from "professional grade" models throughout the rest of home. This distinction appeared nowhere within HD's online ordering center. It was a learning experience and thumbs up here.
