Amcraft Window Question

Hi, I had Amcraft windows installed in 2004. I need weep holes covers for 3 windows which equals about 10 covers. The windows are the 9 sectional slider window. The 9 section is the grid placed in the window. Can you help me? Thanks.

Bobbi, you should be able to buy these on amazon. If they don't have your size, I would call HD and ask them if they sell them. One of these two sources should have what you need.

AmCraft vs. CWS Window Bid

Dane we received a price quote from CWS for 18 windows, all fairly complex. The cost was $19,935. The other bid was from AmCraft windows and was for $16,500.

CWS or AmCraft, which is the better option do you think?

Mary - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mary, CWS clearly has the better reputation of AmCraft. I don't consider them to be a high quality brand. I would get a couple more bids if this were my project. I'd forget the AmCraft and get a bid from Simonton, PGT, Stank, Sunrise, Wincore. Hopefully, a few of those are available in your area.

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.
