Editor's Revere Window Review

Revere was was owned by a building supply company called Gentek, but then that company was bought by AMI or Associated Materials, Inc. -- so they are now owned by them, although many consumers assume that Revere is owned by Alside, also owned by AMI. Regardless of who owns the company, Revere makes several vinyl windows and siding lines. In terms of windows, they make the Amherst Plus, Berkshire Elite and the Sovereign series.

While I don't think the Amherst is a very good window, I think both the Berkshire and Sovereign are middle-of-the-road vinyl windows that, given the right price point and right installer, are fine for many projects. Revere isn't going to be in my top window recommendations for consumers, but they make an okay vinyl window.

Revere Berkshire Window Reviews


Revere Berkshire Elite vs Softlite Elements

We are in the market for new windows for our home. We had a triple pane Softlite Elements bay window installed in 2013 and are interested in triple pane for the rest of the house. We got a very reasonable quote from a very highly reviewed company for Revere's Berkshire Elite triple pane windows. Internet reviews are not favorable but no one is giving specifics as to why the Berkshire Elite is not a good window. We have found that the triple pane feature is relative new due to a redesign. Any insite you have would be appreciated.

Shannon - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Shannon the Revere Berkshire Elite is a decent window in my opinion. Revere perhaps doesn't have the best reputation in the industry, but I think the Berkshire Elite is a decent-enoug hmid range vinyl window. I have no idea what the air infiltration rate or U-factor is on the window, but I would imagine with the triple pane option that you would be getting t least a lower U-factor.

I'd be interested in seeing how the Revere Berkshire Elite compared in price to say the Soft-Lite Elements or the Soft-Lite Classic. Number wise, the double pane in either one would be comparable or better than the Revere option. Certainly the Soft-Lite is a better window, but the price might not justify it.

At the end of the day though, a mid range vinyl window with professional and thorough installation at a good price point is a pretty good combination.

Revere Berkshire Elite vs Imperial LS

Can anyone compare or contrast the Soft-Lite Imperial LS, Pro, and Elements lines? I have a quote from an installer I like for 13 Imperial LS windows for $7000. I like the look of the Pro window, but he does not offer it. I am wondering if I should go with the LS. From another installer that I don't like as much, I have quotes for Berkshire Elite for 7450, and the Vista Panorama for 6735. Thank you.

Lynn - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Lynn, the Imperial LS from Soft-Lite is an excellent window, one of the very best on the market. The Pro is a very good window, but the LS is the better of the two. The Berkshire Elite and the Vista Panorama don't even compare. The price you were quoted is excellent as well.

I rarely get to write that it sounds like you got a great deal out of the gates (assuming professional and competent installation). Good luck!

Revere Berkshire Elite Review

I'm considering replacement vinyl windows from Revere called the Berkshire Elite. I have 6 double hung windows 29" x 60" - can you give me any reviews for these windows and what I can expect to pay? I live in Indiana.

Ron - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Dena, the Revere Berkshire Elite window is the mid range vinyl window from Revere and considered an okay replacement window option. As far as reviews, I like this thread that has some nice unbiased advice on the quality of the extrusion and sill. You can cut and paste this to get to this site - no connection to our site.

As far as window replacement cost goes, there are tons of factors that go into a project bid, but for a standard sized Berkshire Elite with a low-e glass and argon fills at that 29" by 60" with standard installation, I would say you would be looking at $400 to $450 per window fully installed.

Revere Berkshire Windows Reviews

I am considering the Revere Building Products Berkshire Elite vinyl window for replacement of 7 nominal 3'X4' double hung windows. Can you provide any comments or recommendation for the company and/or the specific product referenced above. Revere is not listed in your "Our Recommendations" webpage. Thanks.

Ron - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Hey there Ron, Revere is owned by Associated Materials, along with Alpine, Preservation and Alside Windows. Each of these companies tend to use similar quality vinyl extrusions and materials to manufacture their windows. In general, they are not as well built as other options on the market. For instance, on our Best Replacement Windows page, we offer 4 budget vinyl windows, which I would say are equal to the better product from Revere. But this does bring me to another point, most manufacturers make 3 models, a budget, mid range and premium vinyl window. The Premium Sovereign model is a nice window, in my opinion. If you are considering Revere, I would stick with this model, but there are definitely window brands on the market with stronger reputations than Revere.

Revere vs Vytex Windows

I've been looking at replacement windows and thus far I have the following quotes for 15 windows - they range in price from 9K to $14K.

Thermal Industries Park Avenue Series with triple pane for $14,000.
Revere Berkshire Series with triple pane for $9,000.
Vytex Fortis Series for $10,000.
Vytex Potomac-HP Series for $9,000.

John - Consumer - from 2010

[Installer Response]

Of the four you mentioned, my pick would be the Vytex Fortis window, a nice unit and towards the lower end of the price spectrum you have so far. You may want to get some more bids though as the "contenders" leave something to be desired.

General Revere Window Reviews


Revere Windows Quote In Maryland

I am looking to replace my old vinyl sliding windows with the "Swing & Clean" easy clean variety. Just looking at Google, Revere showed up and their online brochure looked good, but some reviews on your site did not recommend that company. I am probably looking for a mid range manufacturer. I live in Maryland.

Evie - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Evie, Revere is not a bad window, but it wouldn't be at the top of my list either. Sometimes, I feel like that window is touted (by their reps) as the cream of the crop and priced out as such when really the window is more middle of the road. Of course, the company sells three models so it really depends on which series you are referring to.

I know Vytex makes windows in your area because they are headquartered in Maryland and their Potomac-hp is a very good performer. Simonton is a good mid range window manufacturer and their Impressions Series and Platinum Prism Series are quite nice. Finally, I know there are several reps who carry Sunrise in Maryland, which is one of my favorite vinyl manufacturers. Their standard window is a very good window and you can add any upgrades to the window that make sense and fit in your budget.

I would get bids from all three of these companies and see how their bids compare to your Revere window bid.

Gentek Revere Windows

Gentek manufactures vinyl builder grade windows as far as I'm concerned. I say this because they sell most of their windows through supply company storefronts to local installers and contractors. Essentially, Gentek is Revere Windows from several years ago. Their nicer line does include a faux wood interior that I thought was pretty darn nice looking.

Revere vs Ply Gem Windows

I have estimates for double pane sliders from Revere and triple panes from Plygem windows. The prices are pretty close. We have awful winters here in North Dakota so I need something that can handle cold. Any feedback on the two?

AJ - Homeowner - from 2011

[Contractor Response]

Plygem is far better that Revere, so if you can get them with an even better glass at around the same price, jump on that. As long as you get a good install they should be great.

Revere Windows vs Gorell

I need to replace a handful of good sized double hung windows and the Gorell rep quoted me $950 per window (this includes the Armor glass). The other quote was Revere, it's their Sovereign triple pane window and it was $725 per - I'm wondering which is the better quote and should I keep looking?

Donny - Homeowner - from 2010

[Contractor Response]

In terms of overall quality, Gorell is a much better window. However, that quote seems high, although I don't know the specifics of the install and just how large a window you are talking about. Try Milgard, Simonton or Sunrise for another quote to see how it compares with the Gorell.

Barry - Contractor - from 2010
