MW clad window

We now have a clad sash option in our Quiksash line of products to fit two models of MW clad window.  The Fenster Quiksash is a re-engineered version of the original brand’s sash altered to receive our proprietary aluminum cladding profiles.  All Quiksash models  including the MW clad window, are similar in design and appearance from the exterior, bringing consistency to the product.  However, all Quiksash models maintain design elements from the original profile guaranteeing a perfect fit and function in the existing window frame.  Utilizing current glass technology, your window’s energy efficiency can be significantly upgraded and still keep the original look without replacing the whole window.  A Fenster Quiksash can also be a cost effective solution for seal failure.

MW vinyl clad newer model The Fenster Quiksash also replaces a newer MW vinyl clad window that has welded corners and a distinct stepped profile to the face of the sash.  Click the photo to enlarge.  This newer model has a wood interior glass stop which the Fenster model closely resembles.

Fenster Quiksash models come in 4 industry standard colors with custom colors available with an order of 10 or more.

    I am very interested in your Quicksash replacements for MW clad windows. I have a rotten MW Freedom double hung, call size 3062 (30″ X 62″), vinyl clad exterior, natural wood interior, product number FRDHSAOS, low E glass, sculptured grids. I think the MW vinyl balances are OK.

    Will your aluminum clad products replace these sashes?

      Yes! In most cases, our Quiksash kit is a direct replacement for most wood/clad double hung windows that originally had, tilt-in vinyl compression jambliners. You get a new set of jambliners (that match our sashes) and an upper/lower set of sashes sized to match your original sashes. If you haven’t already, you can read up more on this product on the aluminum clad replacement sash product page. We will need all of the information requested on that associated order form to confirm an order for you. Thank you!

    We have multiple (at least 6) MW windows with wood rot on the lower rails only. Could just these rails be replaced? The windows look like the white MW frame on your website. The exterior frame is about 2″ wide. The house was built in 2001 and I found a note that said they were DP50’s and also have a brochure with “MW Freedom Vinyl-Clad Casement”. Hope this is enough to identify but I can send a picture if needed. Trying to find an economical solution and would like a ballpark price. Thanks!

      Anne, MW had several models available. If in fact we are talking about the same model of vinyl clad casement, we do not have exact replica parts for those. The construction of the sash itself makes a repair difficult if not impossible. What you are seeing in our catalog is an after-market replication to fit in the original opening.

    My Home was built in 1995 and we used M W Freedom Series vinyl clad casement windows. I like a lot of folks have the lower part of the sash rotting. The sash its self is 2′-2-1/2″ wide and 5′-10-1/4″ long. Do you have replacement sashes available? How do I go about ordering.

      Bud, Well…sort of. We make a replica sash that fits seamlessly into the frame. However, we’ve had to convert that to aluminum clad instead of vinyl because the vinyl cladding is not available to us. Our sash fits great, but its significantly different in appearance from the original. Customers purchasing from us are either replacing all the sash on their home so they all match, or simply don’t care about how they look because replacing all with new is not an option for them. There are pictures on our website profile catalog, On the index, look under MW for vinyl clad casement and you’ll bring up the page for our MW200.

    Good Morning,

    We built our home in 1994 and the bottom sash in both of our upstairs dormers are rotting.

    They are both Wenco Aluminum Clad Premium Tilt Double Hung 3446.

    When I went to your Wenco Sash Model it says it is unavailable.

    I checked the Jeld-Wen sash profile and they look different than ours.

    Thank You

    I have 2862 MW Freedom series vinyl clad double hung windows. Do you make just a lower replacement sash for this style window?

      Bill, Unfortunately we do not produce any brand specific double hung windows.

    We have a house built in 1994 with MW wood windows, (not vinyl clad), The sills on many of them have rotted and I have been repairing each year. The sashes are not too bad, just alot of maintenance. Is there a replacement window for these? We did replace a few with Anderson clad ones, and they are soo much better.Just a lot of work, since the sizes do not match, having to re-frame and re-trim inside and out.

      Richard, We don’t produce a whole unit, just the sash. Short of keeping up with the repairs, replacement with something else is your only option. Unfortunately sizing changes are a big hurdle to overcome in window replacement.

    I have several 2018 (model, not year) awning style MW Freedom Clad windows. I’m looking for the thermal unit white vinyl retaining bead. It most closely resembles STRYBUC catalog numbers “WENCO 65-90” and “65-240W”. Are either of these correct for this window?

    • Posted September 27, 2019 at 4:10 pm | Permalink

      Bob, Unfortunately I don’t have that information. We’ve re-engineered all of our replicas to delete any exterior side glazing beads, so I really don’t know what they used originally.

    We have MW WIndows that may need new sashes. The vinyl has loosened on some with the resulting problems. Why won’t your aluminum clad windows experience this same type of failure in the future where water does get behind the aluminum and causes the wood to deteriorate? After seeing firsthand how “cladding” caused the failure in our original windows I’m considering just using non-clad wood replacement sashes and planning to just maintain them. Thanks for your answer in advance.

      Well….I guess the grand scheme of things, nothing. Nothing lasts forever. However, We’ve taken great steps to make our window last as long as possible. I can show you a design flaw on every single window ever made. News flash! Window companies don’t want windows to last forever; then you’ll never buy more of them! Seems to me if I have my window models correct, (you didn’t mention casement or double hung) MW used an exterior side glazing bead. Major design flaw. This is the source of your water infiltration, not the cladding. The vinyl bead typically snaps into the frame around the glass with no seal to the glass itself. Any water running down the surface of the glass is leaking in behind the bead once it has relaxed and wrapped over time. I’ve put a lot of thought into not just replicating a sash, but how to make it better than the original. I have re-designed every model we produce with an exterior glazing bead to delete it and move the stop to the interior. This design results in 1. No joint in the face of the sash, and 2. A water tight seal between glass and sash frame using the more current and acceptable “wet glazed” method of setting the glass in the frame.
