Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Windows Reviews

The Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Series is the company's mid range vinyl window that uses the SuperSpacer system, has triple weatherstripping and uses a double strength glass. Similarly to the Amerimax Masters Grande window, the Craftsman uses even sightlines and pretty similar energy efficiency numbers.

The Amerimax Craftsman Portrait ordered in a number of different styles and configurations. The window comes standard with a fusion welded sash and frame, beveled exterior frame, dedicated pocket sill, slim line extrusion, brass roller system (slider), contoured pull rail, metal reinforcement meeting rail and dual action cam locks.

I like the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait window. Assuming solid installation and a fair price point, I think consumers are getting a well made vinyl window that won't break the bank and will provide nice long term value.

Amerimax Craftsman Portrait vs. Wincore 7700

I would appreciate your time to provide feedback on Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Series vs. Wincore 7700 Series.

Dave - Homeowner - May, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Dave, both of the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait Series and Wincore 7700 are good windows. I would put them at the very top of mid range vinyl windows. If this were my project and I was forced to choose on product alone, I think I'd go with the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait window. However, the products are close enough in quality that the installation company doing the work would be my main focus at this point. Go with the best company and I think you will be well served with either of these products.

Amerimax Craftsman vs. Milgard Tuscany

Amerimax Craftsman or Millard Tuscany replacements? Same installation with new outside moldings etc. Tuscany runs about 1k less for all 7 windows I want replacing, but stuck with do I save a few bucks and have less of a window or is Tuscany just as good?

David - Homeowner - November, 2017

Website Editor's Answer

David, my own personal opinion is that the Amerimax Craftsman Portrait and Milgard Tuscany are equal in quality, construction, and performance. Assuming you like the way the Tuscany looks compared with the Craftsman Portrait, I say save yourself the $1K. In terms of the windows, you are not sacrificing anything. Obviously, the installation company is something to consider as well.
