Revere Amherst Plus Windows Reviews

The Revere Amherst Plus window is the company's entry level vinyl window. The Amherst Plus includes the following features, including a multi-chambered sash and frame, Intercept spacer, composite reinforced sash meeting rail, bulb seal, and a sloped sill.

The window is only available in a white or beige on the interior and exterior of the window.

The Revere Amherst Plus is an okay window, but not one I would recommend to most consumers looking for long term value. If you are going to go with a Revere window, I'd suggest either the Berkshire Elite or the Sovereign vinyl window.

Revere Amherst Plus Ratings

We weren't able to find any numbers on the Revere Amherst Plus window. The nfrc.org website lists performance data from hundreds of manufacturers but it isn't always as easy as it should be. For instance, Revere is owned by Associated Materials, but under this manufacturer they list series numbers instead of product names, meaning it's very difficult to suss out what series the Amherst Plus actually is.

When we get performance numbers on the Amherst Plus window, we will update this page.

Revere Amherst Plus Warranty

The Revere Amherst Plus warranty includes a limited lifetime provision on the frame and sash, insulating glass unit, fiberglass screen, as well as a 1 year labor provision. The warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners, although the warranty is then good for 30 years from the date of purchase and includes a pro-rated schedule as to how much the company will cover. As the warranty gets closer to year 30, the company pays a smaller and smaller amount of the replacement cost.

As with all warranties, I always urge consumers to read the document in full to make sure that no clauses or provisions have changed or have been altered.

Andy, I agree that on paper these two windows look pretty close, it's one of the reasons that choosing the right window presents such a tricky prospect. However, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS window is by far the better made of these two windows. Assuming the installation is equal in quality, I wouldn't hesitate to go with the Soft-Lite option.
