Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chief Frame Your Jalouise Window - WOW!
This Aluminum utility window is cut precise to dimensions stated and is very sturdy when the thick window glass panes (13) are inserted. Thirteen is a lucky number on these windows! We made custom frames from pvc boards to give the windows a solid and healthy insertion unit to perfect this unique look for a Sun-room addition. The Owner was very impressed with the out come (utility windows framed - photos attached). NICE!

The opening-closing device "machining tolerances" make 50's American cars seem as precise as cash machines. Other than that, they do what they do very well, delightfully, and breezily. See "shipping" for sad flaws....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DBDB Had high hopes but it didn't work.
Assembly instructions were not very good. Nothing at all about crank handle. It only installs one way is the reason why I guess. The machining of it is not good, handle did not operate the window, it stuck at about a quarter turn. The store employees were good about the whole purchase but ended up returning it when the manufacture would not respond after 2 emails and a phone call.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BTBM very cool windows for an outside room
I bought these windows to use in a full wall of windows that will enclose 2 sides of my covered patio area. They arrived well packed and of the 8 windows and close to 80 individual glass panels, only one was broken. I replaced it at a local glass store for under $10. If anything, they are over-packed. I actually had trouble disposing of all the bubble wrap they come in. This is a very small issue given that these windows are not readily available anywhere else that I could locate. They look extremely classy in the two walls that are now complete and are so different than the usual window and patio enclosures that I have seen that my patio is the crown jewel of the neighborhood. The leak air like a sieve, so they are not good for a conditioned space, but for wind, water and sun, these take the cake for my purposes. I love them and plan to by 4 more for the covered patio extension that I am building later this month. They are a little pricey

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJSDiego Fine American made product.
Project required a jalousie window with privacy glass. Home Depot Internet site did not reflect type of glass in the Tafco JALW2436 advertised. Contacted Home Depot Customer Serv and was informed jalousie window came with clear glass, but window could be special ordered with privacy glass. Inquired as to ability to purchase privacy glass panels to replace clear glass for the JALW2436. Internet store offered saving due to free shipping and discount price of window, which did not apply to special orders. I was put in phone contact with Tafco, who, after being informed my situation, upgraded window glass, without charge, to privacy glass. Great customer service. Quality product noted when window received. Highly recommend American made Tafco windows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MajorRWms Product is nice quality item in many sizes
The catalog uses one picture to represent all sizes. I took the 32 in X 14, White, 6-slat model to mean 32 inches high and 14 inches wide. I needed something that would fit between studs to minimize re-work to framing for installation. WRONG. It didn't have 6 slats--it had 3! and with the slats horizontal, it was 14 inches high and 32 wide. I simply installed it sideways, but the slats are vertical, which won't keep out the wet in a light rain, which is why I chose this type of window. Nothing wrong with product--simply misrepresented in catalog. You'll be happy with it as long as you know what you're getting.
