Crestline Windows Reviews

crestline windows reviews

We should start these Crestline windows reviews by noting that I’ve never seen a high quality window product sold at a box store. These windows are sold through Menards, which is a big box store in the mid-west. That means these are probably not the nicest windows you’ll find out there.

Generally speaking you’re always better off ordering windows through a window company than a big box store. It’s not that box stores aren’t capable of selling higher quality products.

The challenge is that they’re generally very price sensitive so they like to sell cheap products. Another challenge is that many of the nicer manufacturers don’t want to sell their products through box stores so the available products are often not the nicest.

The Crestline windows models we’ll be looking at include:

  • Select 350
  • Select 250
  • Elite Clad – Aluminum Clad
  • Quick Series
  • Pocket Replacement

What about the Crestline windows warranty?

Crestline advertises a lifetime warranty which is pretty common in this business. Their warranty is actually VERY limited with many restrictions that you don’t see from manufacturers who are producing nicer products.

We’ll be reviewing the Crestline window warranty soon so stay tuned for that. In the meantime you can be confident it’s not the best window warranty around.

What’s the bottom line?

Ultimately this is a cheap option but definitely not the best option around. I’d keep looking.

How can you find a great window company?

When shopping for windows I do always suggest finding a great installation company before you fall in love with any particular window model. There are plenty of great window options out there but not as many local companies that are great to work with.

To find our recommended window companies all over the country check this section. If we know someone in your neck of the woods they’ll be listed there and they’ll be happy to help.

For example, my company will send you window prices without ever sending a salesperson to your house at all. The goal is to make this process easy and it can often be easier than you might expect.

    These great name window companies are overcharging people to pay their salesman’s commission to come to your home and sell you on their window, the companies overhead and they bake in the warranty cost in every window they sell. They use failure rate data analysis and will estimate the number of failures they will experience based on the volume of sales. They will used the estimated cost to replace failures by category and determine how much to add to the cost of each window purchased. They also use the average length of time a person owns a home and these lifetime warranties are typically for the initial buyer, although some are transferable to a second. My neighbor replaced his Pella windows that were taupe color frames with a standard white window to hold down expense. He paid $34k for a combination double hung and casement vinyl windows. This is no different than an actuarial determining insurance premiums based on life expectancy. I am not saying the windows are low quality, but they are way overpriced and selling people on the warranty.

    My husband and father in law built homes and the always used Crestline windows they said they were good quality. If you used Pella or Anderson you paid for their name and not quality
