Krestmark Windows Repair

Dane, I found this link on the internet. We have what I believe are Ser4ies 100 Krestmark windows in our house, built circe 1960s. They are brown, aluminum, single hung. The balance spring on one side has failed, and I don’t see a way to swing out the bottom, sliding portion so that the balance spring can be repaired or replaced. What do you suggest as a way to repair the window?

Thank you.

Bob, I would reach out to a top window repair person on a service like yelp and ask for a free bid. Sometimes they will simply do it over the phone. Or you can reach out to local window installation companies for free bids and see if they do glass repair? is the best site I have found for buying window parts.

Our site also has a way to reach out to local companies. The bids are free so you don't really risk anything to have them come out and give you price quotes.

Boral Windows Reviews

We have hurricane windows at our beach house. The metal rods in each side rusted and broke some a few yes ago at 7 yrs and now the rest. We had no problem getting them re-paired but now they won’t deal with us because we are not a contractor. The company we used in Houston Boral windows (?) did the job but no help there.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. I cannot open several windows.

Rebecca, I would find a good window repair person in your area by googling window repairman in [your city, state] and seeing if anything or company comes up. You can also use an app like yelp to find a top rated window repair person. Make sure to check their online reviews before going with them.

I would call them up and see if they offer free bids on repair jobs. The free bid thing is kind of amazing if they do offer it because you can glean a lot of information from that visit about your options going forward.

For instance, they should able to tell you if they can fix your window, whether you can get away with just replacing the window pane(s), or whether you need to replace the entire window.

This is where I would start. If it turns out that you do need to replace your windows, I am happy to offer some recommendations of quality window brands/series in your area.

Krestmark Window Interior Colors

I’m building a home and my contractor said he uses Krestmark windows. I’m wanting dark interior and exterior windows. I’m not seeing that you offer any darker colors!

Morgan - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Morgan, we aren't Krestmark and don't sell any windows actually. We just help consumers. Your contractors should have access to additional window brands. Ask him to find you a brand that offers a larger array of colors. It will add to the cost of the window (up to 30%), but if you search around, you should be able to find a quality brand that offers darker interiors and exteriors.

Krestmark 220 Windows vs. MI

We're replacing both our windows and siding. Our contractor wants us to use MI windows but I'm worried about their negative reviews online. He said he would also get a quote on Krestmark. Which window maker is better?

Toby - Homeowner - from 2018

[Website Editor Reply]

Toby, MI makes mostly a builder grade window. Their Energy Core series is the premium window they sell and a decent option.

Krestmark makes a 220 series vinyl window that I would compare with the MI1650 window.

I would go with the Energy Core from MI over the Krestmark 220 window.

Mid Tier New Construction Windows

Your reviews for replacement windows are great. Can you give me your recommendations for quality, low to mid tier new construction windows? I’m looking at Krestmark, Ply Gem, JeldWen, and Milgard, but am open to others. I’m really looking for the best window at a reasonable price without spending a fortune on high end windows.

Also, how can you estimate any efficiency savings from the various brands in order to factor that into a cost comparison?

Any comments and feedback are greatly appreciated.

Spencer, thanks for the kind words. Definitely check out our best replacement windows page on the website to see our best budget replacement windows at the top of the page. There are some little write ups on each of our five top budget windows.

I would rank the window companies you mentioned in this order: Ply Gem, Milgard, Jeld Wen and Krestmark. However, each company makes a number of different models. For instance, Simonton makes over 20 different window lines. The line they carry at Home Depot is a decent vinyl window and typically pretty well priced.

You can also take one of the top quality vinyl window makers -- Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris, Kensington, Vytex -- and buy their entry level window. For instance, the Polaris ValueSmart is a decent entry level window, as is the Sunrise Essentials. Great windows they are not, but they should serve you well given professional installation.

Houston Tx windows to also look at include Don Young and NT. The mid range NT Traditions may be a series to look at. Also the Alside Mezzo or Revere Berkshire Elite could also be a place to check. Local companies ought to carry these models.

It's going to take 10 to 15 years to make up the energy savings between buying poor windows and great windows. But it will make a difference over time. Poor installation can make a huge difference also so choose an installer with a good track record and solid online reviews!

Krestmark 220 Series vs. Don Young

Dane, I am considering two window replacement cost quotes. One quote is for Don Young windows at a total replacement cost including installation of $8700. The next best quote is a Krestmark 220 series windows for $5800. Do you think the quality of the Don Young window justifies that much additional cost?

Bill - Homeowner - from 2018

[Website Editor Reply]

Bill, I would say that the Don Young is worth the extra $3.5K (how many windows are we talking about?) over the Krestmark. However, I would add that the $8700 bid isn't necessarily the floor of the Don Young reps bid. I would go back to him and tell him that you have a bid for $5800, which is much more in line with your budget. Ask if he can match it...he'll tell you no, then you say that if he can come close, you're ready to sign then and there. That should get him to start the process of lowering his bid. It might take a few days, but I will bet he'll move from that $8700.

Krestmark 200 Series Review

My husband and I are preparing to have replacement windows installed. We live in Atoka, OK. The Krestmark 200 series was recommended, so we had an installer come out and give us an estimate and discuss the Windows with us. I am not thrilled with the thick frame that screams replacement window nor am I happy about the 10 year warranty. We have a Home Depot rep coming in a week to give us an estimate as well on Simonton Windows.

I've read Home Depot window reviews and must admit that I'm a little hesitant to purchase from them. It's just difficult to know the right thing to do. This isn't a cheap decision by no means. I would truly appreciate your advice and input. Are there other Windows you would recommend? We have to travel out of town for most everything, so that's not an issue if we need to.

Cindy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Cindy, Krestmark makes an okay vinyl window, really nothing special. I would rather see you go with many of the Simonton models over the Krestmark personally, although I'm not a huge proponent of HD installation. This isn't to say that there aren't some good installers that subcontract out with HD, but in general the company pays a low per window rate that can lead to less than optimal results.

I do have three brands that I would recommend in your neck of the woods. Gilkey, Don Young and Enerlux. Google, for instance, "gilkey windows in atoka oklahoma" and see if any local companies carry them -- same goes for the other two. None of these is going to be less expensive than the Krestmark (or probably the Simonton), but they should offer much better long term value. With Enerlux, you may have to get a bid or two and then give them your dimensions over the phone to get your bid and then find a local installer. Enerlux is going to be expensive, but they offer pretty amazing performance.

Try these three and see what you get. Feel free to send me your bids once you get them and I'll throw in my two cents.

Krestmark Vinyl Windows Reviews

I'm beginning to research replacement vinyl brands & was interested in getting more information. Our windows are from the mid 80s and need to go. I've looked at Lowes and Home Depot and know that they sell some of the bigger companies like Andersen, Pella and Jeld Wen, but have heard that buying them through these stores isn't always the best way to go. I've received several bids from local contractors that were quite a bit more than the big box places. One possibility is Krestmark, which they sell here in the area and was recommended to me by some friends who seem to know their stuff so they are definitely in the mix. The guy that installs the Krestmark windows has a good reputation in this area and he recommended their Krestmark 220 vinyl window. I checked the website and the window has a .29 SHGC and .29 U-factor, which from what I can tell is pretty decent. Any advice would be very helpful.

Bill - Homeowner - from 2010

[Contractor Response]

Krestmark is decent, they sell mainly through local lumber yards, manufacturer direct supply places and so forth, not so much through distributors. This is one reason why there isn't as much information on them as other companies. There are definitely better products on the market, but if you have a good local contractor that you trust and he knows the Krestmark product, it's not a bad option.

Rich - Contractor - from 2010

[2nd Contractor Response]

My own opinion is that Krestmark makes a pretty low end vinyl window. There are a ton of better brands out there - Soft-Lite, Okna, Great Lakes and Sunrise off the top of my head. I always tell homeowners to get bids on some of these better brands and then see what you can negotiate with them. Usually you can get them down to a good price and you are assured of a good solid product.
