Amsco Studio Series vs. Plygem 200 Series

Hello, I will keep this short. First time ever shopping to replace 3 bedroom windows (one expensive one with the arch on top). Looking for a decent quality and price.

Between amsco studio series and plygem 200 series which one would be better, they are the same price. $2300 installed.

Can't quite splurge for milguard Tuscany series quoted at $3500 I live in Arizona. Thank you!

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nataliya, the Amsco is a cheaply made window. The Ply Gem 200 is the better window of the two. This is the one I would go with if the price is the same.

Amsco Artisan vs Millgard Tuscany

What year did you do your evaluations of window companies? Are your 2016 opinions the same? I'm debating Amsco Artisan or Millgard Tuscany. I want lots of light, but energy efficiency as well. What do you suggest?

Barbara - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Barbara, we have evaluations from a number of years, but most windows don’t change (if they do, we certainly let consumers know about the changes). In terms of Amsco or Milgard, the Milgard is a higher quality window for sure. I like the Milgard Tuscany, it is a solid performer at an affordable price.

AMSCO Vinyl Windows Review

We just purchased a spec home with AMSCO vinyl windows. We live in Wyoming where the humidity is very low and we still have serious condensation issues with the AMSCO windows.

I've not seen this poor of performance in a window in 20 years. I didn't realize manufacturures could legally sell something that performs this way. The wind passing through the windows will almost put a candle out.

Amsco Windows Reviews

The big problem with their composite and vinyl windows is the warranty. They claim that they have one, but if you read the exclusions they eliminate pretty much everything that can go wrong. You can call and order replacement parts but they don't send anyone to make repairs. Amsco says the distributors are supposed to cover labor and the dealers say that Amsco is. I wouldn't bother with their windows cause it's a gamble.

Amsco Windows vs Simonton

I'm going to have 8 Amsco double hungs put in at $500 installed.They are sturdy and I don't feel any drafts, plus they look great. The only thing I was hesitant about is the glazing beads. The Simontons I looked at seemed more solid. I'm impressed with these, though, and I'm glad I chose them.

Amsco Labor Warranty Issues

I looked into the Amscos, but they don't have a labor warranty. Amsco says that the dealers or installers are suppoesd to handle that, but the dealers I talked to have really bad warranties, a lot of them have so many exclusions that they pretty much don't cover anything. They talk about a lifetime warranty, but none that I found covered labor, which a lot of times is the most expensive part of a repair.

Amsco vs Simonton

Before we started our remodel I looked at Amsco windows. They have a good argon fill and their noise reduction is really good. The distributor I talked to seemed honest and helpful, and I kind of felt bad I didn't buy from him. I liked them a lot, but I ended up going with Simonton windows for the quality and pricing.

Amsco Windows Complaints

I see a lot about expensive brands, but the bargain windows aren't talked about as much. The Amsco windows I found were poorly made, had lousy warranties, and were just horrible. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone, it's best to just stay away. Amsco's warranty doesn't cover labor and has so many exclusions it's a joke. Pella Thermastar and all of the Jeldwen windows only have a one year warranty, which means it expires before you've really had a chance to see the window in all weathers. Value and Malibu are really poorly made, both materials and design are cheap.

Amsco Window Issues

I bought Amsco windows last year and they've been nothing but trouble. It only took a few months for them to lose the smooth slide - they are sooo poorly made. Two of them fogged up between the layers, and the Amsco service department doesn't seem to ever return phone calls. The seals on the storm windows failed too, and the condensation and even ice on the inside was driving me crazy. I finally got a rep out to look at them and he said I had high humidity. I live in the middle of the desert in Arizona! Now I have mold growing in between the panes. The "lifetime warranty" that I thought they came with has all these exemptions that basically make it worthless. I'm going to have to replace them all with windows that actually have a real warranty and a real service department.

Amsco Single Hung Windows

We put single hung windows in our home, the back of the house one year and the front the next. The ones in the back are starting to get some condensation when it rains, but that isn't a big deal because we don't get a lot of rain in New Mexico. If we lived in a rainier place, it might be a problem. One of the locks broke but they replaced it with no hassles. They sometimes come off their slide rails, too, if you aren't careful when you open and close them. They aren't all bad, the installer always comes and fixes them when they derail and I think they look nice. I won't get Amsco windows again, but if you really need to save money they aren't all bad.

Amsco vs Milgard

I think Amsco makes pretty good windows. I'd go with Milgard as my first choice, but Amsco is better than Simonton. You'll definitely get a better price if you're doing at least one side of the house, one window at a time gets steep.

Amsco's Studio and Artisan series are vinyl, and the Renaissance ones are composites. Their warranties are lousy, they will send you parts but they don't cover any labor at all. They'll tell you that the dealer or installer handles that, but when you ask them they'll say to ask Amsco about it. If you can handle any repairs yourself, then you don't need the labor warranty and they aren't a bad deal.
