Alside Revelation Prices

Hi Tim,

We were currently offered a promotional deal from REI Home Enhancements on their triple pane Revelation window. Has all the bells and whistles, energy efficient, etc. Free installation/ labor and 30% off materials, 50 yr warranty that transfers over free if you sell the house. We would have to stick a sign in the yard for 30 days etc.

Their presentation was very impressive and very convincing. The two sales guys seemed very knowledgeable and there was zero pressure. After the discounted rate each window came out to be around $724. Is this a fair price?

We have 17 windows which would be a total of $12,308. I have always heard that windows are expensive and have been reading up on the internet trying to find what a fair price would be on the type of window we may be purchasing. What do you think? I appreciate wood appreciate any guidance and advise.

Hi Holt, the Revelation is made by Alside, but I don't hear a ton about the window itself. It's not listed on the Alside site in any way. From what I've been able to suss out, the Alside Revelation is the Ultramaxx that is relabeled and then sold by REI Home Enhancements, which has 15 branches at this point. So the Ultramaxx is considered a decent vinyl window, I'd probably say it's a solid mid range vinyl widow. It uses a snap in sill, which is not a great design in my opinion, because it drains water through the frame and dirt and debris can get stuck or clogged. Not a big deal until year 12 rolls around and the window is all jammed up with gunk. Yuck.

For $724 per window completely installed, you should be able to get a top of the line vinyl window. I would urge you to at the very least get two more bids, three more would be my preference. I'm not quite sure where you are located, but I would start with seeing if Okna windows has a local company that services your area. Their 400 or 500 series windows are going to be a much better window, with better tolerances, fit and finish than the Alside Revelation.

Other companies to look for include Soft-Lite, Sunrise, Zen, Polaris, Hi Mark, and Kensington. Get two or three bids and feel free to shoot them back to me and I'd be happy to take a look and give you my take -- I wouldn't rush this process, you want to do it once and then be done with it for the next 20 years.

Alside Revelation From LEI Home Enhancements

Has rep from LEI Home Enhancements visit with promo offer for sign in yard, quoted 19 various sized double hung Alside Revelation series Windows (11 requiring tempered glass) for $13,942 (everything included plus 50 year & lifetime warranties.

Does this sound reasonable? It's $733/window on average for the windows cost and installation. We signed up but have until midnight Sat to change our mind. Thoughts on the window quality, Alside or LEI that we should know?

Chris, I tend to think the Alside Revelation is overpriced, but that's just me. Tempered glass certainly adds to the cost. You may want to get another bid to compare it to, it sounds like the deadline is fast approaching.

I looked at the google reviews though for LEI Home Enhancements and there seemed to be some disturbing ones, with several that used the term pyramid scheme. I don't like the sound of that.

If it were me, I would "change your mind" and start with a bid from the local Okna rep – Okna is one of the best vinyl windows out there and I would think for $733 per window you could get their 800 series – it's the best vinyl window available in my opinion.

Alside Revelation Windows Costs

I live in Austin Tx. and received a quote for replacing 16 windows with Revelation triple pane double hung vinyl windows made by Alside. They also include argon gas and Low E solarban60 glass. The marketing team said they could use me as a promotional home for my neighborhood and the installation would be free as long as I let them put a sign in my front yard for 30 days. At $11,800 this doesn't sound like anything is free. What are your thoughts on the windows quality or recommendations on others.

Carlos - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Carlos, the Alside Revelation window is way overpriced in my opinion - are you saying the $11,800 doesn't even include installation???? That whole song and dance about the sign in your yard typically is reserved for companies that struggle to sell their products for one reason or another. In this case, it sounds like it's because they are charging exorbitant prices. That's almost $750 per window.

I would suggest looking for companies in the Austin area that sells Milgard, Amerimax, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris or Okna. I know that Zen Windows has a branch in Austin and they sell a relabeled Soft-Lite. Don Young sells a very good aluminum window if you wanted to go that route - aluminum does make sense for your hot climate.

Call up these companies I mentioned and ask for a dealer in your area and have them come out and give you a bid. Get 3 or 4 of them and see how they compare to your Revelation bids, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Alside Revelation Window Review

We just ordered (and have 3 days to cancel) the Alside Revelation windows. We will be getting 20 double hung and 6 picture for $13,000. Have we made a good decision or should we cancel immediately?

Angie - Consumer - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Angie, the Revelation Window model is essentially the Ultramaxx model from Alside, with a few little upgrades thrown in. The Ultramaxx is one of their older models, although it is still listed on the website. Revelation windows are an example of a relabeled or rebranded window that are marketed by LEI Home Enhancements (I take it this is who gave you the quote). The Ultramaxx is a decent window, certainly not the best vinyl window out there, but a decent mid range option. There are some design features that I'm not a fan of, but in general an okay choice.

The price is in the reasonable range. I would say now you need to concentrate on quality installation. How is their track record? Does the company get good local reviews. Assuming you are satisfied with the quality of the install, you should be fine with the Revelation window option. Let me know how it works out for you!
