Amsco Studio Windows Reviews

Amsco Studio Series vs. Plygem 200 Series

Hi. I'm shopping for 3 windows, one of them an expensive arch top. I want to find decent price and quality. I'm debating between the Plygem 200 and the Amsco Studio. Both quotes very virtually the same at $2300 installed.

I did also receive a bid on the Milgard Tuscany at $3500, but it's out of my price range.

Nat - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nat, the Ply Gem 200 series is going to outperform the Amsco Studio window. Ply Gem is also the better company over Amsco.

Barb - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Barb, between the Amsco Artisan and Milgard Tuscany, the Tuscany is the better window. Better company as well.

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 manufacturers 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 replacing 8 Amsco double hung windows that cost $500 each.The windows seem pretty good and sturdy.

Amsco Labor Warranty Issues

Amsco doesn't seem to offer a very good warranty on their windows. They let the dealers who install them handle the warranty issues, sort of washing their hands of any responsibility once they sell the windows. Maybe that's why they are so cheap.

Amsco Windows Complaints

Amsco windows are poorly made and have a lousy warranty. The warranty doesn't even cover labor. It's a joke. There are other manufacturers that are in the same price range but who offer a better product.

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

Amsco makes a decent window. I'd prefer Milgard over Amsco, but Amsco windows are good for the price. They sell a composite Renaissance series, as well as a Studio and Artisan -- both vinyl windows.
