This is a great window for the price. I have never written a recommendation before. After reading all the "negative" comments out there on different vinyl windows, I had to write one. Believe none of it, these particular vinyl windows are great. All negative comments must be from contractors, Andersen Renewal (WASTE OF MONEY), Harvey, Champion, etc. They want to scare you from getting these windows. Go for it. I installed them myself and I never did it before. The price for other windows are a joke and a total waste.

This window went in very easily and is a great replacment for the old window it took over for. It opens nicely and is easy to clean inside and out.

First of all, though it doesn't say ANYWHERE in the description, these are replacement windows...so FYI to anyone who's wondering. I bought them wanting new construction, so I had to buy the nailing fins as well. That turned out to be a pain because the welding of the vinyl frame fills the channel with melted plastic that you have to dig out just to get the nailing fin in.
Once I got that taken care of I went to put them in and realized that one of the windows wouldn't open all the way. Upon further inspection I found that the metal bracket that holds the tension spring was mounted crooked and interfered with the window operation. I fixed that too, and now they are great, but what a hassle!
All in all, a nice looking window, but it's that extra bit of attention to detail that American Craftsman is lacking in their production.

I bought some of these windows to do the house that I was building. I also used them in the barn that I am renevating into a home. They are insulated very well and are just as good as pella windows.
