AmCraft vs. CWS Window Bid

Dane we recently received a quote from Custom Windows for 18 fairly complex windows. The bid is for $19,935, which is really not even in my budget.

My other bid was on an AmCraft window and that came in at $16,500. Should I go with AmCraft and save money or do the CWS? We are in Florida.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mary, AmCraft isn't considered a top tier brand and even though you would save $4,000 on the project, the product you would be putting in is less solid than the Custom Window option. I would perhaps spend a bit of time and see if you can't find a few more companies near you who carry well reputed brands such as Simonton, PGT, and Sunrise.

Amcraft Window Costs vs Wallside

I got a bid from Wallside for 8 windows for $6,000, which seems high to me, but they said that we needed a bunch of additional work to the frames. They were very nice and never pressured us in any way. The Wallside window quote was $300 less than a bid we got recently from a dealer who sold AmCraft windows.

Amcraft Windows Prices

Dane, I'm getting quotes for my home on replacement windows -- so far I got one for a Simonton Grand Estates, but I can't find anything out about them. The quote was on 10 windows and came out to $5500.

Thanks so much!

Travis, I believe that this window is manufactured by Amcraft, instead of Simonton, although it's difficult to know of every window model, series, etc.

If it is Amcraft, I'm not a huge fan, although I like several Simonton models well enough. Amcraft is more of an entry level building products company.

Amcraft vs Simonton Windows

I live in Central Florida and have bids on the Simonton Grand Estates Original, PGT5400, and the PGT 400? Which is the best window of the bunch?

Frank - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Frank, the Simonton Grand Estates Original is often sold by Amcraft. Simonton makes a good mid range window and the Grand Estates Original is the upgraded Grand Estates. They also make a Premier and aPremier Plus series. Amcraft isn't going to offer as strong a warranty as Simonton, but it's not bad.

PGT makes a good vinyl window. I prefer the newer PGT 5400 window to the 400 and think the single hung is one of the better single hungs you can get. Nice performance data and good overall construction. You have two decent options in the Grand Estates and the 5400 series.
