AMI Windows Reviews

Read 6 AMI Windows Reviews from consumers, homeowners and industry experts on their multiple companies and products. 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. 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 that I would want as a homeowner, although the better windows from Alside are decent.

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

[Site Editor's Answer]

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

[Site Editor's Answer]

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 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?

[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.
