Amsco Studio Windows Reviews


Amsco Studio Line Price Quote

Hi Dane, Tim, I've been enjoying reading up and learning about my window options on your website. Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

I reached out to two local installers for a quote on whole house window and door replacement, and they both recommended Amsco Studio line citing these are the same as Milgard without paying for the name. In review of Amsco, they don't get the best ratings for warranty, which concerns me.

Can you take a look at the recent bid I received from one of them, and advise as to if this looks fair and reasonable? The labor is 100% of the cost of the materials which is much higher than your website suggestion of 25% to 35%, but I'm unsure given I'm in California and everything is more expensive here.

Our home is a 1200 ft. cabin, old.

Spec:
9 window replacement - single hung
3 slider replacement
4 decorative glass replacement - top of a high ceiling

I'd like to get bids from your site, but given this is a small town (Twain Harte, CA) I wondered if it was possible to do it anonymously without giving my exact address?

Thanks!

$13.5K was the Amsco quote.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Andra, the Amsco Studio line is a decent vinyl window that typically doesn't offer any real warranty. They sort of let the installer be the party responsible for any warranty claims. This has some mixed results if windows fail down the line. I would take a hard look at whoever is doing the install to decide whether this is a prudent option or not.

$13.5k for the 16 windows and the patio door is a decent price to be sure. I would try and get a few more bids though to see if this is the best you can do.

Our site doesn't give exact bids, but I'd see if you can find an Anlin dealer, Amerimax and a Simonton dealer to give you bids that you could compare with the Amsco bids to get some better perspective on pricing.

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.

Amsco Artisan Windows Reviews


Amsco Artisan vs Millgard Tuscany

I am debating between the Amsco Artisan window and the Millgard Tuscany. Which would you suggest?

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 Serenity Windows Reviews


Amsco Serenity Series

I’m in Chattanooga in a 30 yr house and had the front of the house re-done in Pella windows - wasn’t impressed with installation or insulation (they’ve been back several times to call where they neglected to the first time, etc).

Now I need to do the back of the house and there are barking dogs behind us. Noise prevention is main concern - am working out of house and it’s driving me crazy. Current windows are the old metal type so I know anything would be an improvement - wondering what best windows for sound... triple pane? Special type of installation?? Which ones have highest sound score? Doesn’t have to be Okna... and can do better sound windows just in the bedrooms if they’re expensive...

Thanks so much, it’s overwhelming

Pam - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Pam, soundproof windows can be tricky business...and expensive. You may want to get a good quality dual pane window and ask for an upgrade to an offset glass thickness between the two panes. Or go with a laminate glass.

If you do want to go with an actual soundproof window, my top picks include the Milgard Quiet Line, Amsco Serenity, CitiQuiet and Cityproof are certainly worth a look but their availability is limited. Indow Soundproof Inserts are also an option.

Amsco Serenity Price Bid

Our home is in Texas and we live on a very busy street with tons of loud noises. I was hoping for a low cost noise reduction window -- 15 in total. Thanks so much.

Ed - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ed, low cost noise reduction windows are tricky. They don't really exist. The good news is that if you have really old windows, the brand new double pane windows should do quite a bit better at blocking out sounds. But are they going to stop lots of loud noises from entering the home, probably not. The Amsco Serenity Series is usually the lower price noise reducing window I recommend.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

[Eddie's Reply]

I did get a bid on that exact window, but the dealer wanted like $7K for 2 windows! I'm currently considering the Ply Gem Premium window with a triple pane window in the casement.

Eddie - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ed, the Amsco bid sounds utterly ridiculous. The Ply Gem Premium window with a triple pane glass sounds like it could do the trick. You should ask if its possible to order the glass in different thicknesses, i.e. 3/4" 7/8" and 1". Different glass widths block out different sound waves and could knock out more sounds, depending on what they are. I'm not sure if they offer that option, but if its not too cost prohibitive, you should consider i.

General Amsco Windows Reviews


AMSCO Windows Review

Just received a bid to replace a large picture window (92W X 67 H) with an AMSCO low-e double pane vinyl framed window from Valley Glass here in Boise. The installation is on the north- northwest side of home under a covered patio. Besides the low-e rating, can you clarify if these windows have argon gas between the panes, and should we consider a lightly tinted glass for more efficiency, even though window gets very little early morning exposure. Any other features we might or should consider? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

DG - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

DG, my assumption is that the AMSCO double pane window includes argon gas, most low-e windows do. However, Valley Glass ought to know this answer since they rep the product, I'd confirm with them. I don't think I'd upgrade from the standard low-e window on the north facing side of your home.

A sill reinforcement is the upgrade I often suggest, although this doesn't apply to a fixed window so if that's all you are doing, this won't apply. I looked up Valley Glass reviews and they look very solid. I'd say you have a winning combination here.

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.

Donald - Homeowner - from 2016


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.

Billy - Homeowner in Utah - from 2011


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.

Dave - Window Dealer in Maryland - from 2010


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.

Todd - Homeowner in California - from 2009


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.

Jerrod - Homeowner - from 2006


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.
