Northeast Building Products is a Philadelphia based manufacturer or replacement windows. They have been in business for over 35 years and they are recently expanding outside of the Northeast. In our experience windows from Northeast Building Products can be sold by some old fashioned high-pressure sales type companies which makes the experience less than ideal.
There are three main window lines offered by Northeast Building Products and we’ll be offering detailed reviews of all of them. They are:
- Crusader Windows
- TrustGard Windows
- Camelot Windows
There are a few unique features to the windows from Northeast Building Products. For example, the Crusader windows use a unique spacer that they call Sashlite. This Sashlite spacer is built into the sash. They tout this as an advantage, but it will have a real impact on service down the road. At some point Northeast will discontinue or change the window design and all of their past customers will have a very hard time getting a broken window repaired.
If service down the road is a potential weakness there must be a strength that makes this Sashlite spacer system worthwhile right? If there is we haven’t heard of it. That’s the trick. The ratings of Crusader windows are typical and not exceptional.
Another very significant drawback to windows from Northeast Building Products is their very weak warranty. We’ll have a complete post outlining the weaknesses soon, but for starters the vinyl frames are only covered for 10 years, glass breakage is not included, and labor is also NOT included.
If you’re considering replacement windows for your home it might be best to look elsewhere. To get started you can find the best replacement window reviews online right here.
