You people on here may be the dumbest individuals i have ever encountered. Who on here personal wrote a check to Amsco windows? Since they dont sell directly to consumers that means no one on here did..... You bought windows from a dealer or distributor which didnt take care of you with service after the sell. All window companies are the same if your dealer sux or goes out of buisness then and only then do you call the manufaturer. At that point if you read Amsco's warranty they will supply you glass and or parts for the life of the window or as long as you live in the house. Generaly the first year is parts and labor which the labor is supplied by the dealer not the manufacturer! Amsco has been in buisness per their website for over 50 years companies that offer bad service and bad products don't last for 50 years. So please before you open your mouths and talk smack about your windows know what your talking about!

Problem with Amsco Windows is that you see lifetime and you think you have a lifetime warranty. You don't. Amsco does not provide labor at all. Most name brand windows like Milgard, Simonton, Atrium do have lifetime labor if you live in the house. That is why Amsco windows are cheaper then the other brands. Contractors love Amsco because they aren't the ones on the hook for the labor. Companies looking for a profit margin sell it to uneducated homeowners that don't do their homework. You get what you pay for guys. Read the warranty. Amsco is a contractor window period.

They only warranty the labor if there is a dealer close that can do it. Don't be fooled all of the window dealers have the same policy. The Dealers do the work and the Manufacter pays the dealer for the work, Amsco included.

I am in Los Angeles area so I can only talk about what I see here. Simonton, Milgard, Anlin all do warranty work in my area.

thats all depending on what you would like to accomplish with your windows. if your trying to save on utilities i would recomend upgrading to the low e 366 and argon gas its going to be the most efficiant glass.
i have heard great things about some kind of hardcoat lowe with argon and super spacer. What can you tell me about that?

Has anyone ever received replacement window parts from Amsco? Doesn't sound like a very good window with all these problems mentioned.

BUYERS BEWARE!!!! AMSCO is terrible quality. Their windows can only last for about 5 years. I should have known by reading how crafty all the loopholes were written their warranty to know how poor their quality is. I have an entire house of AMSCO windows and over half of them are leaking or fogging. The vinyl they use ages quickly and develops hairline cracks that allow water inside your home.

Why would Amsco provide a labor warranty on the windows? That has absolutely nothing to do with them if they are not installing the windows. We have dealt with many window companies, but not one of them comapares to Amsco. They are extremely responsive to their dealers, so maybe its the dealer that you purchased from that is giving you the grief, not Amsco. They stand behind their products 100% and all of our customers are extremely happy with Amsco because we, as a dealer, install and service the product properly. Do not knock a manufacturer on something that has absolutely nothing to do with them.

We have a had a great experience with AMSCO windows and our contractor. New replacement windows have made a big difference in keeping the house comfortable as well as reducing the gas bill.

If you knew anything about amsco windows you would know they use intercept spacer system the same spacer system that milgard and 80% of the top ten manufactures use.and if you ever need parts they are real easy to come buy all you need is your original order number.

Amsco makes a low end window with no warranty. People on here can defend the product but you all sell Amsco windows. I don't see one good review from a homeowner. Read the warranty.

AMSCO WINDOWS ARE GARBAGE! NEVER USE THEM! I have installed thousands of different windows, and I have never come across a lousier product. These are the only windows that I have had call backs on...TWICE- out of 3 times that I installed them. I am waiting for the third person to call any day. These are very easy windows to install, and I followed their instructions exactly. I had to eat the cost of labor and new windows because of this 2-bit company. I replaced with Milgard windows. They are popular in California, and have a great warranty. I will retire before I ever install another AMSCO window. Do yourself a favor and avoid these windows like the plague. I can't believe that they are still in business with reviews like these. The only positive review is from the guy that is obviously a salesperson from AMSCO. What a snake!

Amsco makes lots of low end windows. In fact, I think all of them are low end doo-doo. I have a whole house of them and they all fog up between the glass. They are 3 years old. Please don't perchase these windows. I would pick Anlins. That's what my parents got and they are great. Or pick anything other than Amsco junk.

The single hung windows we bought from Amsco are junk, the only thing worse is their so called service. For over five years we have tried to get some help from these crooks. They now want to blame my installation, even though their "service" rep replaced screws and panels and the windows are worse than ever. They now say they have done all they are going to. At least I know they will not keep jerking us around and lying to us, as well as making matters worse. Would love to join others in class action lawsuit, as the courts are the only hope to deal with this company. Avoid these windows at all costs!

We had a home built and they used Amsco (in Canada) can't get parts and now after two years of having wind blowing through the locks (last year had to stuff cotton balls in them!). We are now replacing all the windows and now have learned not much insulation was used when they installed. This is just one of our problems with our new home

If I ever had windows or doors installed I will be making sure I am home to see the work done. You buy a new home and expect it to be good not replacing things after two years
