Weather Shield Aspire Series Delivers Sophistication and Superior Performance in a Price-Sensitive, Low-Maintenance Product Line


Weather Shield Windows & Doors is pleased to offer a quality product line for every budget, each offering a range of options to meet everyone’s tastes. The Aspire Series™ of vinyl clad wood windows and patio doors, for example, is ideal for homeowners with modest budgets and who desire a refined look with some customization. The Aspire Series offers the beauty of real wood interiors with low-maintenance, resilient extruded vinyl on the outside in casement, awning, double-hung, slider and direct-set windows; and sliding and hinged patio doors. All come with a 20-year warranty.

"The Aspire Series is an attractive, option-rich product line for builders and homeowners who want the best of both worlds: wood interiors and low-maintenance vinyl exteriors," said Dave Koester, brand manager at Weather Shield. "Because it features the advanced technology of our Symmetry Balance System™ on the double hungs and the TriCore™ frame technology on the casement, awnings and casement picture windows, the Aspire Series is incredibly sophisticated for an entry-level offering."

Aesthetic Appeal

The Aspire Series offers many features that add aesthetic appeal to the product line. The double hungs come with either a standard vinyl jambliner or an all-wood jambliner that delivers architectural details and clean sightlines – a feature not often found on value-priced products, according to Koester.

The Aspire Series’ white, tan, or cameo-colored extruded vinyl clad exteriors resist fading in the sun and are less susceptible to dents, scratches, flaking and peeling than wood exteriors. In select geographic areas, Weather Shield also offers desert tan exteriors. Interiors are standard pine, which can be primed or prefinished in one of four stain choices or painted white.

Energy-efficient glazing options add to the thermal performance of the units. Glazing choices on the product line include: Zo-e-shield 5, Zo-e-shield 5 Extreme, Zo-e-shield 6, Zo-e-shield 7, Zo-e-shield Safeguard, Zo-e-shield Safeguard Certified, or Insul Low E2 with argon-gas-filled airspaces. For added customization, simulated divided lites (SDL), grilles between glass and removable wood grilles are also available on the Aspire Series.  

Excellent Efficiency and Thermal Performance

Beneath the surface, Aspire Series windows have the most-advanced technology delivering excellent energy efficiency and thermal performance, and protecting against water infiltration. The double hungs have Weather Shield’s exclusive Symmetry Balance System – a coil balance system that eases operation and helps the units achieve a Class 3 AAMA rating.

Casements, awnings and picture windows in the Aspire Series feature Weather Shield’s TriCore frame technology, which creates a thermal barrier preventing the transfer of heat or cold to the inside of a building. Highly moisture-resistant materials, the fusion-welded sub frame, and the thick, multi-chamber sub frame components all work together to reduce weathering, eliminate water infiltration and improve structural performance.
