Amerimax Window Prices

Amerimax window prices run from the mid to slightly high end of the vinyl windows spectrum. The company has a good reputation and is one of the better vinyl window manufacturers available on the West Coast. One advantage they have over Anlin and Simonton is quite a few more exteior frame colors to choose from - this greatly adds to the cost of a window but is a nice option to have if need be.

Amerimax Masters Grande Prices

The Masters Grande window is the low end offering from Amerimax that comes in 10 exterior frame colors, even sightlines and comes standard with a 10 year warranty. Performance wise, expect the following numbers; U-value 0.28, VT 0.56, SHGC 0.30. Probably comparable to the Milgard Styeline Series.

Amerimax Masters Grande vs Mezzo

Hi! We have quotes on the Mezzo by AMI from a few local installers (including Window World) as well as Amerimax Masters Grande from a local installer. Both windows give a limited lifetime warranty. What I’m more concerned about is the quality of the window. The Amerimax quote is coming in nearly $3k higher than the Mezzo. Is it worth the investment? I don’t want buy junk but at the same time I also don’t want to overpay for something that is of equal quality.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Bradley- Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bradley, the Alside Mezzo window is one of Alside's better windows, but not one that I would recommend. I think the overall design and construction leaves quite a bit to be desired. The Amerimax Masters Grande series, on the other hand, is quite a solid vinyl window and one that I would certainly consider myself. As to the price difference, I really can't say because I don't know how many windows are going in or the installation requirements. You may want to get two more bids from some local companies to give you a broader picture of the range of bids -- it might provide clarity for you on the cost difference.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Prices

The Craftsman Portrait window is the mid range option and a step up from the Maters Grande series. It offers more robust weatherstripping and a better spacer between the window glass. Like the MG, it offers even sightlines and comes with a 20 year warranty on parts and labor. Performance wise, expect a u-value 0.28, SHGC 0.29. Comparable to the Standard Sunrise window.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Series

Hi Dane, I am looking to replace all 43 windows in my home in Parker, CO, and have narrowed it to the following bids:

Amerimax Craftsman/Aristocrat - $31,000

Sunrise Restorations - $36,000

In addition, I received bids from an Anlin dealer at $43,000 and Apex at $40,000, and eliminated both of these due to the much higher cost.

Also, what is your opinion regarding double pane vs triple pane glass?


Michael - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michael, hi there. Two excellent windows. Is the Sunrise Restorations the better window over the Amerimax Craftsman/Aristocrat...yes. By how much? About the price difference you have going. I tend to think that the Amerimax is a nice option as it's local, well made, made at altitude, and less expensive. Don't get me wrong, I love the Sunrise Restorations, but in this case I might be leaning toward the Amerimax option in this heads up.

I tend to drift to the double pane camp over triple pane, but only because there are more parts to the IGU that can fail. For very cold climates though, triple pane has its place. Kind of a tough call for Colorado.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Cost Bid

Hi, Tim, thank you for the information; I appreciate it. I received another quote of $6,058 on the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait (Ameriglass AG3 with .28 u-value and .22 SHGC). In your opinion, what quote is better - the Soft-Lite Pro or the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait?

Shawn - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Shawn, so if I remember correctly, the Soft-Lite Pro was $6800 and the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait is $6058. They are pretty comparable windows in my opinion. I would tend toward the cheaper bid since the products are so similar. However, the company doing the work would be a pretty big factor in my decision. So...I’d be leaning toward the Amerimax bid unless I felt like the Soft-Lite installation company was going to do the better job or was better established in the area, etc.

Craftsman Portrait by Amerimax

I received a bid for 2 6x 8 sliders, 9 fixed windows in varying sizes but average 24x30, 3 privacy windows- 2 are fixed and 8 58x58 single slider windows. These are with cardinal 340/neat glass. All are in white. The total is $21, 147. Does this seem reasonable to you? Thanks. It's for the Desert King/Craftsman Portrait by Amerimax.

Anne - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Anne, that price seems like it could be in the ballpark from the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait. It depends on the breakdown of cost for the sliders and the amount of labor required.

Instead of me guessing at whether it's a good price, I'd suggest getting a few more bids from other reputable window companies in the area. This is going to be the very best way to know what a fair price is on your project. After three more bids, you will have a solid understanding in price ranges to make a more informed decision. So far, I'd say the price you got is at the top of the "fair prices" out there.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Pricing vs. Daylight Max

Hey guys, we live in Phoenix in a stuccoed exterior home that gets lots of sun and heat into the house. We have to replace 14 windows with a combination of single hungs, sliders, and one glass door. I was wondering what you thought of the following prices.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Windows: $13K with a full replacement install
Simonton Daylight Max Windows: $9.3K with a retrofit installation
Ply Gem Pro Windows: $8.7K with a retrofit installation
Anlin Del Mar Windows: $13K with a retrofit installation

Michael - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michael, I would either go for the Anlin or the Amerimax if you decide that you need the full replacement option. The Daylight Max would probably be my pick if you are more budget conscious or aren't planning to stay in the home more than 10 years.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Craftsman Portrait vs. Window World 4000

I'm looking to replace 15 aluminum windows and I live in the hot Arizona desert. I have very large windows, many receiving full sun all year long.

7 72x72
3 96x72
4 48x72
1 46x54

Here's the estimates I have so far. I realize the Marvin is a fiberglass frame where the others are vinyl. While I love the fact that the frame is a bit smaller, I just cannot afford the Marvin.

Marvin Infinity: $31,268

Window World 4000: $8,554

Simonton DaylightMax 7300: $15,533 (this quote is 1.5 years old)

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait: $12,900

What other Windows would you suggest that are budget friendly for the hot AZ sun? Or which of these would you suggest? I expect to stay in this home for another 8-10 years. Any guidance you have is very welcome. The world of Windows is very confusing.

Stacy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Stacy, I understand that the Marvin Infinity is out of your price range, that's quite a lot of money to spend. The Window World option may have to be replaced again before your 10 years are up, so let's get rid of that one. The Daylight Max is a decent window, but the Craftsman Portrait is certainly equal to it and is several thousand less so the Amerimax is my pick for sure.

If you are looking for a couple more bids, try local companies who sell Milgard and Anlin, specially the Milgard Tuscany and the Anlin Del Mar. These are both on par with the Amerimax and should provide some good apples-to-apples cost comparison.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Pricing

I live in Colorado and I am looking to replace 4 sliding windows, they are each 48x48 inch. I really liked the look of the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait. Plus they are made locally. The quote I got was for $2900. Based on other quotes I have seen this seems a bit high. What do you think?

David - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

David, $725 per window does seem high at first glance. However, I don't know what other components there are to your project that might account for this price tag. Get a bid from local companies who sell Milgard, Zen, and perhaps Simonton, and see how they compare in their bidding. This will tell you whether the bid is high or not. If you still like the Amerimax, you can use a lower bid to negotiate the dealer down.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Costs

I have a bid for the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait window, with low e366a and neat glass. They are single hung windows.

2- 35" x 70" $1,400
2- 70" x 59" $2,400 (4 windows)
1- 36" x 59" $600
1- 59" x 36" $600
8 windows in 6 openings $5,000

Sandy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sandy, that bid looks fair to me.

Amerimax Craftsman Prices

We recently bought a 1960s house in Northern California and it is like a greenhouse with the old aluminum, single-pane. We are in the process of obtaining quotes from several reputable installers and are having a hard time seeing through the smoke and mirrors. We are replacing 14 large windows and two 8' patio doors.

We've gotten quotes for the Anlin Del Mar/Malibu, Milgard Tuscany, Simonton Madiera, Simonton DayLight Max, and Amerimax Crafstman. The Del Mar was most expensive at abotu $16k, Tuscany about $14.5k, Madiera about $13k, DayLight Max $12k, and the Amerimax at $11k. How do these products compare to each other? Does the price sound right? Is the quality of these products OK (is there anything better)? Is it worth spending more for fiberglass over vinyl (don't really want wood)?

Aaron - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Aaron, of the list you sent, I like the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait at $11,000. I would say the Craftsman is comparable to the Tuscany and the Del Mar. I would say it is better than the two Simonton options that you have there.

In terms of price, I think the Del Mar sounds a bit high and the Amerimax sounds a bit low. I think you have some very solid vinyl choices and fiberglass, although a bit better pound for pound, is going to cost you more and I don't think it makes sense cost wise.

I would make sure that the Amerimax installer comes highly rated and is well reviewed. Assuming they are, this is who I'd go with. Best of luck to you!

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Costs

Hi Tim, your website has been a big help to me. Just looking for a quick non-skin in the game recommendation. I'm having a situation where all these guys are saying that the other one either sucks or isn't any better LoL. Zen has been pretty straightforward. We live in CO - all windows are south facing.

I've got 3 quotes for a variety of windows, some picture, some double hung, some standard sliders + 2 sliding glass doors. - Totals 2 doors + 15 windows.

Quote 1: Amerimax Craftsman Portrait with AG3 - $10,150

Quote 2: Zen Windows Nirvana - $13,010 (Soft-Lite Pro?)

Quote 3: Wincore 7700 - $13,400

Are any of these going to be better than the others? Just looking for some clarity on the actual quality in comparison of these 3 products.

Chris - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Chris, all three of these windows are good. I would say they are close, but I think the Soft-Lite Pro (you are correct) is the best of the bunch. I really like the window. Zen windows are franchises and often fairly new into the business (that doesn't mean whoever is running it is though). My point being, make sure that the Zen dealer has a good crew of installers who have good reviews and experience. Of course, this goes for all three companies.

All in all, I think you have three good bids - but it is annoying when everyone is bashing the other one, not very professional.

Amerimax Aristocrat Windows Prices

The Aristocrat Casement can actually be ordered as either a casement or an awning window. It offers nice performance numbers, U-value 0.26, SHGC 0.25 and VT 0.47. This model is quite nice looking, with a nice slim frame and even sightlines. Comparable to say the Soft-Lite Imperial LS window.

Amerimax Replacement Windows Cost

I'm in Hawaii and need 9 replacement windows with varying sizes. I recently got a bid from Amerimax that breakdown as follows. They come with all the bells and whistles, but it still seems like a lot.

5 Craftsman Portrait Sliders (XO, all roughly 60x38)
3 Masters Grand Double Hungs (all roughly 30x40)
1 Craftsman Portrait (XOX 90x58)

Daniel - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Daniel, that bid does sound high. Get a bid for the Ali'i Extreme. Also get one on the Simonton Reflections 5500 series. This should be enough to see if the bid is too high or is fair market price.

Amerimax Windows Cost vs Simonton 6100 Series

I received an outrageous quote from Pella...we wont talk about that.

I received another from HD for $7800. Simonton 6100 series windows. 10 double hung, a 2 piece slider and a 3 piece slider with a picture window in the middle.

In reading your posts here, HD is a bad idea. I found a very good local installer (JD Windows in Denver) who sells Amerimax windows. I'm reading their costs seem to be $450 - $600. Doing the math of the windows I mentioned above this added up to be around $4000 installed.

Am I missing something? Are there additional charges I'm not aware of? JDI will be visiting me later this week but I'd like to be well-informed. It seems HD is high priced for a lower end window. Thanks.

Kelly - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Kelly, Pella is often one of the most expensive windows out there, so I'm not surprised.

You have 12 windows in all, one of which is quite large, so the $7800 is not bad ($650 on average per window fully installed) - remember although we try to provide general costs, most windows are priced out by the linear foot so the larger the window, the most expensive they are. I like Amerimax windows, but they are going to be at least as expensive as the Simonton, their entry level Amerimax Masters Grande series will probably be comparable to the VantagePointe 6100 series from Simonton. The mid range and higher end Amerimax windows will be more expensive than this.

If you like the VantagePointe 6100 series from Simonton, you could always buy it from HD and then find your own window installer via craigslist, Angies List, yelp, etc. and have them do the installation. They will usually come out and give you a free bid on the installation portion. I'm not a big fan of HD installation because of how they structure their payouts to the subcontractors. Just make sure that whoever does the install has lots of experience, good reviews, and seems to be very knowledgable about the job you are paying them to do.

Amerimax Windows Pricing

I am in the market for 10 windows, I have been priced $12,731.24 for all 10. I found an eco friendly window called Amerimax. They seem to be very similar and the individual who is offering this is asking for half the price.
