Caradco Windows: yes, they do still exist!

The Caradco company is long gone, and JELD-WEN still hangs on to the name as a sales pitch (but doesn’t really have Caradco replacement windows).  But Fenster does!  We have replicated multiple versions and styles of the Caradco windows line spanning 30 years of the company. Our Caradco replacement sashes have become our most popular product — making us, by our humble estimation, the nation’s leading supplier of the Caradco line to homeowners and window professionals across the country.  Here are some product features and highlights of our current Caradco windows catalog.

Caradco C-200 Caradco C-200 Casement (1970s-early ’80s)

The C-200 was an all wood, primed unit.  The significant identifier on the C-200 was the stepped sash face profile next to the glass and the reversed jointery.  Fenster offers this model in the original rubber boot glazed version, or an altered direct set wet glaze version with an exterior stop to match the original profile.    Either version allows the customer to re-use their existing glass for added savings or replace/upgrade their insulated glass unit for better performance.  C-200 sashes are shipped unassembled with weather strip installed.  Replacement glass is available for additional S&H.

Caradco HeritageCaradco Heritage I & II Casement  (1980s-1990s)

The Heritage line is by far our most popular product.  The heritage sash is a primed wood sash with a flat, two-inch wide profile face.  Both the heritage I and II are identical in appearance except for their overall thickness.  The heritage I has 3/4″ glass making the thickness 1 3/4″, while the II has 11/16″ glass, making the over all thickness1 7/16″.  This is very important to note when ordering.  Both models had a rubber boot glazing originally.  Fenster also offers two versions of the heritage line, allowing the customer to re-use their glass:  one matching the original boot and a direct set version with an interior stop.  Heritage sashes are shipped unassembled with new weather strip installed.

Caradco Car-clad Double Hung (1980s-1990s)

Fenster carries the Caradco double hung popular in the ’80s and ’90s.  Double hungs can be hard to identify at times due to their lack of detail.  Caradco had a very plain and simple flat profile to their double hung sash with one notable detail:  their lower sash has a square bottom rather than a beveled edge to match the sill slope.  We offer this sash frame in the rubber boot version and ship it unassembled with new weather strip applied.

Caradco Heritage Clad Casement and Double Hung    

The cladded casement version is identical to the heritage II only with the cladding applied as well as the double hung.  We have an after-market cladded sash available in our Quiksash line of products if you seek a completely assembled sash ready for hardware.  Your most cost effective solution (if you’re doing the work yourself) is a stile and rail kit.  However, the original cladding, hardware, and glass must be transferred over to the new wood sash frame at assembly.  This is surprisingly easy to do!  The cladding slips over the face of the stile or rail from one end, and then the four sides are screwed together around the glass.  To remove the cladding from the old sash, take a putty knife under one end and gently pry up the crimp.  This will allow you to slid the cladding off the frame.  Slide the cladding back on the matching stile or rail and gently tap the crimp back down flush with the end.  Do that for all four sides and you’re done.  We recommend caulking every end joint before screwing the frame together.  Due to the installation of the cladding at assembly, only the boot glaze versions are available.  Replacement glass is available for additional S&H, but keep in mind the original rubber glazing boot must be re-used.

Because Caradco windows replacements are our biggest seller, we get a lot of requests for replacement hardware, especially casement operators and weather strip.  The C-200 series used a single arm operator with a colored squared metal housing usually in bronze, white or gold.  The most popular sizes were a 9 1/2″ inch or 13 1/2″ arm.  The length of the control is required to order.  It is also notable that TRUTH hardware has since discontinued the square housing and replaced it with an elliptical shaped housing.  There is no change in installation or function despite the minor change in appearance.  The heritage and clad lines switched to a dual arm operator as pictured.  As with all operators, the handing of the unit is required for ordering.  Contrary to confusing left-hand right-hand hinge industry speak, we have folks give us handing from the interior facing the window.  Tell us which side of the window needs the operator and we’ll send you the one you need.  We also stock for retail sale a 1/2″ plastic leaf type weather strip used on all of our Caradco windows casements and a vinyl bulb used on our double hungs.

        I see this post was from 2013, although it may not be the same part that I am needing, I am looking for the plastic retaining clips that are attached to the sash by a very small screw that holds the removable muntins (grids) onto the sash. I can send pictures if needed.

        Hi Steve, This is really too specific for us. We don’t get into hardware too deep. Really only the most common and generic stuff as add-ons to sash orders. We’re more on the sash and millwork side. There are many window hardware companies online if you do a search.

    I am looking for replacement hardware for casement windows that will hold the window in place during winds. The current hardware allows the window to flop back and forth. Very irritating.

    Or are there double or single hung replacements that fit easily in the existing opening?

    • Posted December 4, 2013 at 11:32 am | Permalink

      Edwin, with the hinges and operator properly installed and in good working order, the sash should not be swinging loose. These would be obvious defects affecting the operation of the unit if something was damaged. We recommend visiting our online parts catalog to identify the parts you require. You can access that from our home page at http://www.fenterusa.com. Please complete a customer quote request and our customer service team will be happy to provide you pricing on the part numbers you provide.

Our part number for a sash rebuild kit is CC101-C and our part number for a complete clad sash is QSR-CC101. FYI, we need edge to edge width and height of each sash. We do NOT accept glass sizes.

      Connie, Window hardware is a challenging business. When it comes to different styles and brands, the choices can be infinite. Unfortunately for us, its impossible to connect you with the proper replacement parts without knowing exactly what you have and need. We recommend getting a window repair professional involved to properly identify your window and order the correct parts. When you are ready, please visit our website, http://www.fensterusa.com to view our online parts catalog. Our customer service team can provide you with pricing and availability from a quote you fill out with the part numbers you need.

    I believe our Caradco casement windows were installed in 1999 when previous owners remodeled the house. I have one window that needs replacing as the bottom part of frame has rotted. How do I know what replacement window to buy? Is getting someone to come to house possible as I have other issues with the picture window (believe glass is leaking). Ideally I would like to replace these windows with double hung as I see no redeeming value with casement windows but likely cannot afford that.

    Thanks for any help

      Steve, I’d love to help! I’m not sure what your question is? Yes we have Caradco replacement sash.

    • Posted August 17, 2016 at 9:46 pm | Permalink

    Hey, I need some wooden grills or grids for the inside of my windows. I bought your windows in 1989 and have been happy with them. One of the April 2016 posts said you were going to try and mill them again. Did you start milling the grids or should I just look up a local milling company in my area ??

    Thanks—Dan

    • Posted September 9, 2016 at 11:05 pm | Permalink

      Dan, Just for the record (because we get this a lot) We’re not Caradco. I was 15 in 1989! We’re a small family owned business that makes copies of windows that have gone out of business. We were trying to secure a supplier to make grills for us, but it seems wooden grill companies are already rich and have plenty of customers. Customer service is extremely poor in this, and I’m sure, most big industry. Grills take specialty equipment to produce, but if you have a local company that can do it, you’re best bet is to go with them. If you end up being happy with the result, I’d love the contact. We could give them quite a bit of business.

The frame wood is dry rotted and water damaged severely and I am afraid to remove/open it to measure if it is a 7/16″ or 11/16″ width. A CC101 or CC102. How can I tell without pulling it out? Thanks so much, John Mott

    • Posted December 16, 2016 at 11:17 pm | Permalink

      John, Unless this window in question was a replacement at some point or different than the rest, and assuming all of the windows are original to the house, you can measure any other operable sash on the house and be confident they are all the same. FYI, we’ll need the exact edge to edge of the sash itself to build it for you. We’re guessing using the RO, and we’d rather not do that. 🙂

    Hi, I have Caradco window that are original to the house built in 1994. The wood on the windows at the bottom have pretty much all rotted out. the rest of the frame seems to be ok. These are aluminum clad wood casement and awning windows. Do you have replacement wood frames to replace the rotted parts?

    • Posted June 13, 2017 at 12:20 am | Permalink

      Craig, We certainly do! Our replica Caradco is our most popular model. Your choice of product would be a sash rebuild kit, which is new wood sash frame where you re-use all of the other components, basically rebuilding the sash. Your other option is our Quiksash line of after-market replacement sash specifically engineered to match and fit a Caradco frame. More detail on both of these product lines are on our website, http://www.fensterusa.com. You can complete and order request on either of these product pages, or you can email my sales dept. directly at, sales@fensterusa.com. Thank you.

      Jeff, I’m not sure what you’re asking? Are you trying to determine the window model or the glass size? The glass is irrelevant for us to replace the sash if that’s what you’re looking for. There’s a whole different set of questions to answer to order a replacement sash. You can find those order forms on our website, http://www.fensterusa.com. If you just want the glass replaced, your best option is to contact a local glass company for that. Glass is not brand specific. Any glass company can replace that for you.

    I have the 1989 vintage Caradco double hung clad windows. My biggest problem is the warping/deforming of the jamb liners especially on the south side (replacement Jeld-Wen jamb liners #207576/207577-actual size 73 1/2″ short side of sloped bottom). Also due to the warping of the liners the side/vertical wood sash is warped on many of the windows. Do you sell just the side and bottom sash? (Carado window #3234- -actual sash size: 36 1/4″ side and 31″ bottom). My last question if you sell the jamb liners–if possible can you sell just he vinyl liner only–I have a life time supply of spring balances since I have replaced these liner on the south side of my house 3 times since 1989. Please price out 3 window locks as well.

        Hey Jim, You were asking about operator covers if I’m not mistaken? The difference between Caradco models of that era are obvious. The C-200 had a very different profile from the Heritage I. Although its hard to explain. There are pictures of each in our sash model catalog to look at. C-200’s had a rounded edge appearance with horizontal joinery and a 1/2″ step down in the exterior face profile that ran the perimeter of the glass. Heritage I’s had a plain, flat 2″ wide face with no detail really at all. I would still say, just send us one to be sure.

    Hi,
    I’m Rick with 84 Lumber. I was doing a lot of caradco replacements over the 13 years as a service man here. I just did one and after a year they finally had me install them. They are the Smart Fit line. Narrow Styles, Clad exterior, and pine interior. He needs another. Seal failure, and they have no glass bead. Do you make a replacement for this?

      Rick, We make a ton of Caradco’s…our biggest seller by far, but I can’t say I’m familiar with the “smart fit”. We make the newest version of a Caradco that JELD-WEN produced through the early 2000’s, but those have a 2″ wide face with mitered corners. Interior stop. Roughly 1-1/2 thick. Something newer than that, I’d have to look at it, or maybe JELD-WEN still makes them?

    We are looking for window replacement for Caradco 716. Do you guys have this model still.
    thanks,
    Vasu

      Yes. That would be our part number QSR-CC102 for a complete new sash replacement.

        Thank you Ryan. What information do I need to order this part number. I was confused where to place the order on the website. Thank you for your quick reply.

      • Posted July 6, 2018 at 8:20 pm | Permalink

        Vasu, I’m assuming this is a casement? You go to the casement sash product page and complete the order form there. http://www.fensterusa.com It will ask you for the fenster profile number. That’s where you enter QSR-CC-102.

    It is a double hung window. We need to replace thr top part as thw wood got rotten and it broke. The bottom window ij ok.

      Oh, okay. Well in that case all we offer for a Caradco double hung is a rebuild kit. We have 2 models we can do. The 716 is probably an indication that it would be the Guardian series. Our part number is CCDH-100 for that. But you’ll want to look at both models in our catalog online to make sure.

    I have a living room window which I got about 14 years ago in Highland lumber co in Fayetteville NC
    it has a stable middle window with two silding windows (smaller on each side) double panel glass
    one cracked on the inside ( do not know why) 3 panels not the outside. We had someone come because of the casing is so sealed they could not replace the glass we need the whole casing. it is not wood. it looks clued. what can I do ? Where do I find the model no or whatever
    I can send a picture

      Hi Kathy, Sounds like you need a different glass company! That sounds like a lack of experience to me. I can’t do anything about the glass for you. We don’t sell, or can’t ship, loose glass, but I’d be happy to look at it and see if I can coach someone how to do it. You can send me a couple pictures if you would like to sales@fensterusa.com and I’ll take a look a them.

    We have a Caradco Palladian window with a broken seal. Glass is fogged up. Are these windows still available?

    Any chance you produce jambs for caradco windows as well?

    I have a rotten jamb on a job I’m trying to complete. I managed to find a tag on one of the window jambs. Part# 8955025, Desc. CLSC SG IG 28×34 2-8/6-2
    Cat#FA2834.

    I’m really hoping to not have to pull the unit and match/mill components to produce a new jamb.

    Thanks!

    • Posted August 25, 2018 at 2:17 pm | Permalink

      Adam, We don’t. There really isn’t a market for frame components. Any legit carpenters out there that know how to rebuild a window prefer to make their own parts onsite. We’ve never had much success with those kinds of components.

    Hello, I have a homeowner that needs to have a picture window sash replaced for a Caradco window. What they have is an all wood window, casement/picture/casement window. The glass in the picture window has a seal failure, so I’d like to change out the entire picture window sash. The sash opening is 38 1/2″ x 62 1/2″. The window is from 1985. Can I get a replacement sash from you, what would the cost be, and how long would it take to get?
    Thanks, Pete

    Do you have any information?, thanks

      Yes Arturo, that is shown in our catalog as the classic double hung under Caradco. We have that available as a rebuild kit only.

    I have Caradco 716 windows that were installed in my new house in 1989. The windows have held up nicely but the little plastic tabs that fit into the window frame to secure the screens have deteriorated badly over the years. Are those plastic tabs for screens still available?

    I’m looking for the crank mechanism for a Caradco Entry Gard window. It looks different than the one I see pictures on your site. The second gear is much larger and only toothed on approximately 1/3 of the surface.

      Hi Mike, We only stock what we have shown on the site, but there are several window hardware retailers online if you do a search for window hardware.

    I need to replace two double hung windows (Caradco), one is cracked and one is fogged. Also , I have an exterior “French door” that is fogged.

    Can you give me any help. The date on these windows is 1983.

    Thanks,
    Karen

    • Posted January 9, 2019 at 12:52 pm | Permalink

      Karen,

      Glass is not brand specific. A local glass company in your area should be able to replace those for you since we do not sell individual panes of glass.

      Mick, I won’t be much help either. We don’t sell just the glass. That’s what residential glass companies do. I’d bet you have several in your area that can replace that for you. Maybe do a search for glass replacement.

        I understand. But you cut a rabbet into the sash for the glass, so you do know how thick it is. Is it 3/4 inch?

      • Posted January 24, 2019 at 1:02 pm | Permalink

        Mick, don’t over think it. You don’t do anything to the frame to replace the glass other than unscrew it to pull the glass out. I believe the guardian has 9/16″ glass, but leave that to the professionals. That’s their job to figure that out.

    Hi, We’re looking to buy a house built in ’93 which has Caradco double hung windows. The counter balance springs are broken on many, and we’re trying to determine if replacement springs are available. There are some watermarks on the windows, and the best we can decipher is 2\ followed by a backward 6 and then ?. What are the odds that replacement parts can be obtained, and what might the cost be? Thanks!

    Hello – I have some Caradco Heritiage II casement windows that need some rail replacements. Do you offer an option to purchase only the bottom rail vs. the entire SRK? My measurements for the casement windows using exterior edge to edge of stiles and rails are typically in 1/2″ form (ex. 26-1/2″ x 58-1/2″), is this a common measurement for this style of window or should i be expecting something more precise (ex. xx-5/8″ or xx-11/16″) ? Do you recommend i reuse the original boot or discard and use a wet glaze instead? if the latter option then what changes do i need to make to my order? thanks for the help!

    • Posted January 31, 2019 at 2:06 pm | Permalink

      Hi Russ, I know we’ve been talking already and you have authorized your order, but for the sake of others reading this blog, I’d like to address some of your questions. Your measurements are spot on for a Caradco Heritage I or II. A cladded unit measures even numbers to the half inch from the exterior side as we request.

      More importantly to your other questions. I don’t recommend re-using anything! I don’t even recommend our own SRK product. It’s a bare minimum fix that only addresses one issue of wood rot. It doesn’t address likely seal failure, improved efficiency, or longevity of the sash. I also don’t recommend saving a 20 year old glass unit that in all likelihood was only guaranteed for 10 years to begin with. The glazing boot was the engineering failure to begin with and the main cause for the wood rot. Why re-use the original failure to guarantee the same end result?

      Our replacement sashes address and improve upon all of these deficiencies, and in my humble opinion, are manufactured to a much higher standard for performance and longevity.

      Ben,
      I’m sorry, but we do not make brand specific double hung windows in lieu of our signature sash replacement kits. We only offer a Caradco double hung in a rebuild kit, which is just the wood frame. That really doesn’t help you with the seal failure issue. Replacement glass does not have to be brand specific. We recommend you contact a local glass company for that.

    I have a 3′ by 3′ double hung window installed in 1987. The panes rotate inward for cleaning. It has absolutely no markings but I was told it might be Coradco. How could I determine for sure??

    • Posted April 15, 2019 at 9:02 pm | Permalink

      Don, Double hung windows are very difficult to identify. Hence in part why we don’t offer brand specific replications on double hung models. I wouldn’t put much time into it. Depends on your issue? If you just need the glass replaced, a local glass shop can do that for you. You don’t need to replace the whole sash.

      • Don Bauer
        Posted April 16, 2019 at 2:32 am | Permalink

        Ryan. This is definitely a Caradco. I found marking. The glass panes are fine. The bottom rail on the upper pane has rotted. Is there a rebuild kit?
        Don

      • Posted April 22, 2019 at 12:11 pm | Permalink

        Hi Don, As I mentioned previously, we no longer offer the matching parts for retail sale. If you need a whole new sash, our Quiksash kits work great for Caradco windows. You can check those out on our website if you’re interested. http://www.fensterusa.com

      Michael, We don’t offer brand specific replications on double hungs. We make our own DH kits for that. You can probably just have the glass replaced. You might try a local glass shop for that instead of replacing the whole sash.

    Do you offer replacement storm panes? Glass covers for casements. 1995 era. And the poasctic bits that screw on to hold them inlace? 2 of our window panes have fallen off and broken when crashing to the ground.
