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.

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.
