Windows and Doors
Since 1955, Weather Shield has been committed to making windows and doors the best way we know how-- by putting the wants of our customers first. Today, this philosophy remains the heart and soul of everything we do.
Our focus on innovative and flexible solutions clearly distinguishes Weather Shield from other window and door companies. It's the reason we offer more styles, shapes, sizes and options in more product lines than anyone else in the industry. It's what drives us to design, engineer and manufacture the highest quality, most energy efficient products possible.
More than 55 years ago, Edward "Lee" Schield began with a vision and used his own personal savings to purchase aluminum extrusion parts. He assembled them, by hand, into storm doors and sold his products to homeowners in the Central Wisconsin area. Schield soon expanded his business by calling on contractors and while the number of orders continued to increase, the foundation of becoming a leading manufacturer of windows and doors was underway.
Today, Weather Shield remains family-owned, with three generations actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the company. Weather Shield continues to grow and thrive by striving to offer only the highest quality products. Over the years, dedication to innovation has grown the company into one of the nation's leading window and door manufacturers.
Based in Medford, Wisconsin, Weather Shield proudly offers its comprehensive products and services nationwide. With more than 1,900 employees dedicated to provide everything homeowners want in windows and doors, we invite you to discover everything Weather Shield has to offer.

Aspire Series vinyl clad wood windows and patio doors provide the benefit of a low maintenance exterior with a rich, warm wood interior. Vinyl extrusions on the exterior sash and frame make these windows and patio doors exceptionally durable, as well as improve resistance to water and air infiltration. Aspire Series products are suitable for residential or light commercial new construction or remodeling projects.
Perhaps one word best describes our hinged patio doors: elegant. Traditional in design, their two operating glass panels are hinged on the sides and swing inward or outward from the center. Patio doors hinged between the glass panels, also known as French doors, feature one stationary panel and one operating panel that swings open from hinges along the center stile.
Prefer not to have anything between yourself and the great outdoors? Our bi-fold patio door panels slide completely out of the way to maximize your view. Connected with center hinges, the panels open accordion-style using a track-and-glide system and a guide that enables each panel to pivot.

Whether choosing the energy-efficiency of our high-perfomance glass options or the strength and durability of our aluminum clad products, each Premium Coastal™ window and door is made to stand strong with a unique blend of beauty, brawn and design flexibility.
