Amsco Windows Reviews

Amsco window prices are affordable, located in the lower range of the window market and you can expect to pay anywhere from $225 per window fully installed. If you choose a Studio vinyl up to $550 per window fully installed for the Serenity double hung options. Amsco are known for making builder grade vinyl windows, they also do composite choices and sell through distributors. Don’t expect any warranty on the labor side of things as this falls into the distributors lap. Distributors may offer a warranty with lots of exclusions, so read the warranty carefully.

Affordable And Decent Product

I am a local contractor in the area of San Diego, California. I have been installing Amsco’s product around town for about the last 3 years. They are very affordable and they are a decent product. Over at Western window sales, Mr. Mark takes care of me quite a bit with whatever I might need relating to Amsco. When I have a problem with a window he handles it and puts a service call on it. I plan on continuing to install the product as long as Mark keeps selling them.

Issue With Their Warranty

Their composite (Renaissance) and vinyl series (Artisan and Studio) have no labor warranty. If you go to AMSCO, their website warranty says as much but if you make it that far, go ahead and read the exclusions. It pretty much covers everything that could go wrong. If something does go wrong, you can call AMSCO and order parts but they won’t send anyone out because it is the distributors (the people buying windows from and who install them) that are responsible for the labor/installation side of things. Fair enough — EXCEPT — the distributors don’t mention this. The guy I talked to said the windows came with a lifetime warranty. All I can say is MAKE SURE the installation is done to a tee or you are on your own!

Homeowner Endorsement

I had a local dealer give me a price for 8 AMSCO double hungs at $500 per window, which included the installation. I liked the specs on the windows and when I saw the they seemed like a good product. The one thing I wasn’t impressed with is the glazing bead, as compared to the Simonton equivalent, which was much more rigid and solid. Overall though, I’m very impressed.

Amsco Warranty Policy

Amsco has no labor warranty for their windows, meaning their delears are responsible for installation or product issues. The way I understand it, AMSCO gives their dealers a small sales percentage that goes towards warranty issues. The dealers I spoke with in Southern California provide zero warranty if you purchase the windows themselves and 1 year on the windows for their installation.

Dealers play up the lifetime warranty on the products but don’t mention the lack of a labor warranty. There are definitely other companies and manufacturers who give better homewner warranties.

Amsco vs Simonton

I did some research on AMSCO Windows during our remodel and liked their products. But, I have to say, that I liked Simontons a bit better. The AMSCO fills seemed solid – Cardinal IG argon fills. I liked the Serenity series if noise reduction is high on your list. All in all a good window and the distributor (at least in Denver) seemed honest.
