I have never replaced a window in my life, so when I took on this undertaking, I was a bit apprehensive. Once I tore out the old window, I new I didn't have a choice. But thankfully, the installation of this wndow was so very easy! A little silicone seal, 4 screws and some caulk and wing bang...NEW WINDOW! The appearance from the street was gorgeous! The easiness to install prompted me to replace all my wndows and now my house looks great! The windows I got rid of were 40+ year old wood framed windows that were starting to mold and get very drafty...but, now I have energy efficient beautiful windows. I definitely recommend these window replacements if you are in the market to replace your current windows. Thank you, American Craftsman.

I've purchased 8 total American Craftsmen double hung windows. The windows seem rather inconsistent in quality and poor craftsmanship. My windows leak air terribly, which means they whistle when the wind blows. Initially after I installed them and I heard the air leaks, I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me extra foam blocks for the channels and some instructions on possible fixes to the problem. I've tried their solutions and even tried resealing them myself. I'm out of ideas to fix them. I will not buy these windows again, nor will I recommend them to others.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HawkFan Easy to install
I have ordered and installed 6 of these windows and they fit and install perfectly. Watch the video on the image list and follow the directions; this will help you to avoid problems. Each window takes less than an hour to install. Buy one tube of caulk per windows and have some insulation handy to shove in cracks and to put in to the header. Has nice locks and features.

We replaced our old window with this new improved model. We are sorry we did because within 60 days of replacement, the inside springs broke. Now when we lift it up, it weighs about 25 lbs and the wieght is splintering my wrist bone. Do not buy this window as it is poorly made and the parts inside are of the cheapest material's made for a window! Wish I still had my old broken window!

I purchased a total of 15 American Craftsman 70 windows - some via homedepot.com and some special order through the local store due to special dimensions. They all came in quickly without any damage or issue. The windows are really easy to install - watch a few videos on the internet on installing replacement windows. Don't be afraid to try yourself. Try one, then your confidence will skyrocket and you will do every window in your house.
The windows are excellent and really look nice. Big improvement over the old single pane windows with cracked glazing and oxidized aluminum storm windows. One added bonus is they have really reduced the noise from outside. They are easy to open and clean. I'm sure they will help cut down the drafts during winter and reduce A/C usage during summer.
One very minor note - watch for flashing at the outside corner vinyl welds. Trim if needed so they don't throw off your fit into the old window frame.
