Crestline Windows and doors


Any info good or bad on Chrestline Windows and doors appreciated. I am getting ready to replace both and the choices are mindboggling. Of course I read that Anderson Windows are supposed to be the best but what makes them better?

If it was my choice, and I had a budget, I would go with Crestline. It really comes down to appearance, budget, and who installs them in my opinion. I always hear about the bad with Anderson Windows, but most is their wood frame line, which really any wood framed window will warp & swell if not installed per manufacturer instructions.

Crestline Windows and doors


I hadn't heard anything bad about andersons. I have read plenty bad about pella since getting on this site. I have never noticed crestline until I went to Menards. They have a low dollar line but I'm kind of leary. I only want to do this place once. I will be putting on vinyl siding as soon as the windows are in and the roof is shingled. I can do this stuff right now but in a few years I'll be past it so don't want anything that isn't going to hold up

Crestline makes a budget, mid & high end line, just like the rest. Anderson, you come across stuff every now and then about their windows and doors, regarding problems with them swelling.

I've seen Crestlines patio doors fail within a few years of installing---Be careful about that---

Light weight plastic tracks and weather stripping.----

That is why I stated that I would only go with them, if I had a budget, and it would have to be a very limited budget to force me to go with that brand.

I've never replaced any of their windows and they are a popular brand---so they must hold up O.K.

I have decided to go with Simonton Windows. Have a couple major problems to fix first but want to get them in before it gets too cold
