    AKRON, Ohio, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- As announced on March 13, 2001, by
 the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the United States
 Department of Energy, Alside, a division of Associated Materials Incorporated
 (Nasdaq:   SIDE), is proud to have its Alside Window products recognized as the
 ENERGY STAR(R) National Window Partner of the Year 2001, for the second
 consecutive year.
     The ENERGY STAR program is a voluntary partnership between the EPA, the

 recognition of energy efficient products and to promote the environmental and
 economic benefits of certain products that may qualify for the ENERGY STAR
 label and other program activities.  Alside's marketing and communication
 efforts were instrumental in promoting the education and awareness of the
 benefit of the ENERGY STAR program for window products.
     Since 1947, when Alside introduced America's first residential baked
 enamel aluminum siding, they have been the name to trust for innovative
 technology and quality products.  And following in these footsteps, Alside
 Window products have been designed and engineered to meet the demands of
 homeowners all across America.
     Alside is privileged to receive this substantial recognition for the
 second consecutive year, and it is their intention to support the guidelines
 set forth by the ENERGY STAR program.  Alside's strength has been, and will
 continue to be the education of the ENERGY STAR program for all customers.
 These include all internal corporate personnel, our extensive dealer base, and
 of course and most importantly, the consumer.  These same communications will
 also help to increase the sale of ENERGY STAR compliant Alside Window products
 in the future.
     Alside is a leading manufacturer of exterior residential building
 products, which are distributed nationally through more than 75 company-owned
 wholesale distribution centers.  They produce a wide range of vinyl siding and
