Decent window at a good price
Ok. First off, you get what you pay for. They aren't the super duper expensive units, but they work fine. That being said, these windows are pretty decent for the money. Installation was easy and they look good and open/close without an issue. I purchased one (at first) to replace a 100+ year old single pane wood window. I had to modify the opening a bit for height, but that was MY CHOICE rather than spend a few more $$ and wait 2-4 weeks for a custom size. It works well and functions perfectly fine. It's been a couple weeks ( Early Oct 2019 ) and we've gone from 60's to low 30's and I feel no drafts or air filtration ( with the old window I'd see the blind moving in the wind ). So happy with the 1st install, I actually purchased 2 more to replace other windows too, since they had them in stock at my local HD store. Only thing I can add is to make sure it's SQUARE and LEVEL. That is the key to a good installation. Luckily, our home is old ( 289 years ) so it's settled and everything is pretty much square to start with.

      These windows were great for the application I had. They fit perfectly into the space I had to work with with no trouble at all. Screws provided were excellent for what I had to attach to. The trim pieces for oversized hole were not used, I had wood sash inside. Thanks.

      Poor quality - hold up for only a few years in spite of a "lifetime warranty".
      We purchased 17 double hung windows to replace older units. After a few years the windows panes started to get foggy, the plastic balance shoes (used to raise and lower each pane) break like peanut brittle, and the screens break at the corners. Poor durability and quality even though they look good at installation. Have replaced many (at least 12) over the years as they continue to distintigrate and have become a MAJOR HEADACHE! I must add that we keep our home in immaculate condition and use the windows only once or twice a year and that is for cleaning them... we have central AC so they stay closed all year. Many hours wasted replacing them as well as reattaching wires to our hot wired security system. Do not purchase!!

          I bought this window and after installed by expert and found that inner lower sash is 1/8 smaller so it always leave a gap that you can see through. I need a new inner lower sash.

            These windows were better made than another brand I had recently purchased (Jeld Wen) from a competitor. American Craftsmen offered the grid on both upper and lower windows. They had a foam weatherstrip around entire window, double latches and just seemed sturdier.

            Told they were easy to install. A little disappointed that they are rated for the south and I live in the north. But they are better than what was there. Thank you.

            I found these to be good windows. I also recently bought 400 series which are sturdier and nicer, but much more expensive. These are going in the bedroom where I don’t care as much about the look. Haven’t had very hot or cold weather yet to see how they work for insulation, but the specs on the sheet don't seem too much different from more expensive windows.
