Lindsay Window Reviews On Crownview Series

Hey Bill, any chance I could get an opinion on the following: 23 Crownview windows: a combination of sliders and single hungs. The quote was $20.1K. Is that a fair estimate?

[Site Editor’s Response]

Hi John. So I think that sounds high based on the fact that the Crownview is their entry level series. If it was for the Pinnacle, I might have a different opinion, but not for the crownview. But who knows, prices are all over the board these days. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, go get some additional bids. Do some comparison shopping and see what else is out there. You’ll be shocked by how varied your bids will be!

Help with Lindsay Windows

We are busy building a new home, but went over budget. We are desperately trying to cut our budget by around $30,000, which means we need to change our brand that we go with . Originally we had chosen Marvin Integrity window, but they are too expensive, so our builder said we should have a look at the Lindsey which apparently are vinyl. I don’t seem to be able to find much information on these and could do with some advice.

I was considering Lindsay a while ago and was quite impressed with them. Apparently they have been going since 1947 and I know they just opened up in Chicago. If you go to their webpage and have a look at the top right you’ll find their marketing link. If you choose than and then choose your window you will find all the performance numbers you need. In the end I had quotes from Sunrise, Lindsay and Okna and went with the Okna.

Thrilled with Lindsay Pinnacle Windows

I was undecided when it came to buying replacement windows and spoke to two Lindsay representatives, both suggested I choose the Pinnacle series, which is their premium series. The Sunview and Earthwise ranges are apparently their drop downs. I spend months researching replacements, but what these two representatives told me really stuck. I sat with aggressive sales men giving me their pitches and trying to get me to make an instant decision, but in the end I returned to the Lindsay Pinnacle series. I have had these replacement models in for a while now and am so happy I chose these over any of the others on the market.

Lindsay Windows Complaints

We chose Lindsey some time back and unfortunately the sales men never told us about the Pinnacle range. The ones we go are such poor performers, they leak and have such high air filtration you can see the drapes move when the wind blows. The installation was very poor, which has probably had an impact on the overall performance. Eventually we purchased new replacement windows and took the Lindsay windows out and they weren’t installed properly at all, they actually just fell out of the opening. It was disgusting to think we paid good money for them and didn’t get any assistance from their customer service department.

Make Sure Your Windows Are Installed Properly

I have been with Lindsay for over twelve years and handle many complaints on a daily basis with the majority being poor installation. What many people don’t realize is that installation is just as important as the quality of the window. Poor installation can lead to leaks. Basically the windows are manufactured in a way where installation must be square. If the installer doesn’t do this, it will result in poor performing units and then complaints. The tolerance of the windows is around 0.05 inch, or 1/16th inch, this allows the window to expand and contract with the weather chance. Over the years I have helped friends and family install Lindsays in their homes and never had a day’s problem. Installation is such an important element of any window replacement.
