About SoftLite

SoftLite Story

Located in Streetsboro, Ohio, SoftLite Windows & Doors, a business of Harvey Building Products Corporation, manufactures premium vinyl replacement windows manufacturer. We pride ourselves on offering high-quality, energy-efficient windows and doors that are ENERGY STAR® certified to meet the needs of homeowners.  

Since 1934, we have built a strong reputation and solid partnerships with our dealers. We offer a broad, option-rich vinyl window product line and excel with large-scale dealers. Our modern manufacturing plant is 200,000 square feet of manufacturing space on more than 20 acres of land, allowing us to manufacture over 300,000 windows and doors per year.  SoftLite boasts seven different product lines with unique features and more than 10,000 product options. Our manufacturing capability is scalable to meet the needs of our growing customer base, and we are proud to deliver competitive production times, on-time order fulfillment, and superior product quality.

As a pioneer in vinyl windows, eight-time Partner of the Year winner, and six-time Sustained Excellence winner, SoftLite is proud to offer a wide variety of styles to suit any budget and aesthetic sensibility. Our company’s founders began to manufacture vinyl frames in 1953, back when popular opinion still favored wood as the primary construction material for home windows. Modern science has proven that vinyl far outperforms wood, and even aluminum, as an energy-efficient material for window frames. Best of all, vinyl enables those who value the traditional look of woodgrain to enjoy the appearance of wood along with the energy-saving benefits and maintenance-free ease of vinyl window frames.

National Crime Prevention Council Sponsor

SoftLite Windows & Doors is a sponsor of the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC). The NCPC’s goal is to help educate and raise public awareness about home security and crime prevention strategies, including window and door security. Homeowners often think about windows in terms of an investment in energy savings, which they are, but the right windows also are an investment in protecting your property against intruders. SoftLite’s Elements and Imperial Elite window lines are noteworthy for their security features, including Kevlar beam reinforcement at the lock rail and full meeting rail interlocks – two of which sandwich a polyvinyl butyral interlayer. SoftLite’s intruder-resistant windows meet all forced-entry standards established by the American Society of Testing and Materials Specification to ensure maximum break-in resistance. The superior frames, locks, and hardware have a unique process for bonding the glass to the frame. SoftLite’s secure locks pass the stringent AAMA Gold Forced Entry Resistance certifications for structural integrity, safety, and security. Triple-pan glass, vent latches, and locking BetterVue screens are additional intruder-resistant features.
