AMI Windows Reviews

Read 2024 AMI Windows Reviews on Associate Materials, Inc. and their various windows and doors.

Company Information: AMI or Associated Materials, Inc. is a large building supply company that owns a number of window and siding companies, including Alside, Xact, Preservation and Alpine windows.

Are AMI Windows Any Good? In general, the company sells builder grade windows, which means a budget priced window that builders often use to keep their project costs down. For consumers, these windows don't typically offer the long term value. However, their premium window series such as the Bellevue, are considered a decent quality option.

AMI Windows get a 3.7 out of 5 stars based on 14 consumer reviews below.

Bellevue Windows Reviews

Hi Dane! Thank you so much for your response as well as your response to others on your website. Your help really helps the public understand this process so much more.

I looked further into bellevue by AMI and found it was only around 200 more (total is 23,600) for 17 windows. I'm thinking we will go with them as the next series up is Soft-Lite Imperial LS series and 15% more and doesnt seem like something we need.

Let me know your thoughts on that price.

Thank you.

Jonah, the Bellevue is a solid window. I think the price is generally fair and what I would expect from Window Nation. Not cheap but Window Nation is a pretty solid organization

I have to say that for me, the upgrade cost to the Soft-Lite Imperial LS is worth it if you plan to be in the home for a long time. The Imperial LS is a top tier vinyl window and one that I would expect to have real staying power if you plan to be in the home long term.

AMI Windows Review

Hey Dane, thanks you for the thoughtful response. You told me what I need to hear about AMI products. It sounds like they are not the worst window but certainly do not live up to the hype that WU promotes around them.

I think at this point, I am narrowing my decision down between Okna and ProVia (the folks that are offering Sunrise have not been reliable during the process). Windows of Washington, who I found through the site, is offering Okna windows. Although they are a little more expensive, they are still a top contender in my book based on WoW’s track record and product quality.

Thanks again for all the insight!

Associated Materials Incorporated vs. Anlin Windows

Hi Dane, I would like your opinion on Anlin Del Mar windows vs Associated Materials Incorporated. I have 26 windows to replace and was happy with the estimate for both but would like to know more about how the quality of the windows compare.

Thank you.

Florencia, the Anlin Del Mar window is far superior to anything that AMI makes. The Anlin in a heartbeat!

Any thoughts on ami product. When doing a search on AMI widows it's stated that there 4000 and 6000 series are not vary good. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi John, so Window World sells a low end window at a low price. A decent option for budget strapped consumers, but I just think there are much better options out there if you want to maximize your long term investment. I'll send you a list of good and superior windows so you can do a search for local window companies and brands.

AMI Bellevue Windows Quote

I'm in Maryland and I have a bid on the AMI Bellevue window. The bid is actually from window nation and its for 18 windows. The quote is $11,830 after some heavy finagling. Is this a fair price?

Sally - Homeowner - from 2018

The Bellevue Window is indeed made by AMI and is one of their premium windows. I've never head of Window Nation selling this model -- it caught me by surprise. The window has some nice components and gets solid performance numbers, including a .27 U-factor, .11 air infiltration, .30 SHGC, and .55 VT.

My issue is the price per window. $658 is a hefty tag for a window with a .11 ai. I'd get a few more bids to see if I couldn't find a comparable window at a lower price.

AMI 80 Series vs. Simonton Daylight Max

We have three bids from two separate companies and would love to see what you think of them. WE are replacing 25 windows (7 are picture windows and 18 are single hungs), a french door, and a sliding door.

Milgard Style Line: $16,980

AMI 80 Series: $16,650

Quote 3: Simonton Daylight Max: $18,410

Mariyln - Homeowner - from 2018

[Website Editor Reply]

Mariyln, of the three bids, the Simonton Daylight Max is the best -- but also the most expensive. The air infiltration on the Daylight Max is pretty decent, depending on which window you get. The Milgard Style Line and the AMI 80 series are more builder grade windows and not ones that will provide the sort of long term value you should be looking for.

AMI Window Review

I read where you say the Window World 4000 Double Hung Series is a rebranded window made by a company called Xact. I have put these windows on two of my rentals in the New Orleans, La area and so far 7 years ago on the oldest one I have been pleased. The windows have a half screen, low e, argon gas, foam wrap, double locks and grids with the accidental break warranty.

So far I have made claim on three of the windows for fogging and they mailed me a new right away without any trouble and it was easy to replace. They provide two invoices and on one it is handwritten that the model is a 3001 series and Alside mezzo frame. On the other sheet completed by the sales guy it says 4000 series DH fusion weld 3001. To be honest these have worked fine for what I am looking for and I have no complaints so far.

I have other rental houses I plan to replace windows at and was wondering if it is in fact xact that still makes this model. I have installers but was looking to see if I could save some money by ordering direct from the company that makes them? The sales rep when I asked him for technical info referred me to aslide windows so I was curious if you knew for sue it was exact that still making the window or if it is now aslide and what is my best bet to deal directly with them in the future?

Mike - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

To the best of my knowledge, Window World uses Comfort World windows, which are the relabeled Xact and Alside, both of which are companies owned by AMI.

The distinguishing feature between these two windows is going to be the hardware and the lift rails. My suggestion would be to get a bid from Window World and make sure they bring a sample of the windows they currently sell. It should either match the hardware that you have or be different and this should tell you whether it's the Alside or the Xact, both of which again are made by AMI.
