Alside Excalibur Windows Prices

The Alside Excalibur Series generally receives mixed reviews from industry experts. The Excalibur is considered a low to mid-grade window, although it is the most popular Alside window series (and the entry level window often sold by Window World). One of the best features is the narrow sightlines, which allows for less frame and more glass.

The company seems to stand behind their products, despite the issues the windows have - thin walls, AI numbers around 0.18 and poor seals. They also look rather plain and simple. They are a decent window for a rental property of a house flipper, but not something for a long term replacement window. Compare the Excalibur to Window World prices.


Alside Excalibur Windows Costs

I have quotes on 2 bay windows and 12 double hungs. Any opinion on which is the better option?

Alside Excalibur - $7500

Harvey Classics - $8700

Bryan - Homeowner in Massachusetts - from 2009

[Contractor Response]

Bryan, the Alside Excalibur is not a good window, so I won't comment on this bid. The Harvey Classic is a solid vinyl window, it's certainly the winner in this horse race.

Alside Sheffield Windows Prices

The Alside Sheffield Series is a bargain priced window that few would recommend if you're looking for a something that will provide good long term value. A lot of window contractors don't like the snap or clip in sill and overall construction quality. To keep production costs low, all four sides have the same extrusion, which results in a weaker frame.

The Sheffield is slightly thicker than the Excalibur and the frame contains more chambers, but the seals and weatherstripping are poor. The Sheffield frame is pretty bulky and lacks visual appeal, although it will provide better strength and durability compared with the Excalibur. Compare the Sheffield to the Silverline 3100 Series - see all Silverline windows pricing.


Alside Sheffield Window Quote

Hi, we have 24 windows and got a bid on Alside Sheffield and the bid came in at $9,750. The pricing includes all windows, installation, caulking, new trim coil, foam insulation around, and haul away. That also includes all tax. In terms of warranty, they stated they have a lifetime warranty.

The window he priced is the dual-pane (NOT the triple), white on white vinyl with the exception of the 6 windows highlighted in red. Those would be white with the wood grain vinyl on the other side. None of the windows would have grids and they would all only be the half screen not the full screen.

Melissa - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Melissa, $420 per window is a decent price, but I think for $500 a window you could probably get better windows that will last longer. Nearly all vinyl windows come with a limited lifetime warranty so the fact that he said most companies offer a 7 to 10 year warranty is wrong.

Alside Sheffield Window Costs

I have windows that need to be replaced. Here are the bids I have so far.

Great Lakes Grandview 5000 Series (w/triple pane): $8200
Simonton Prism Platinum: $7600
Great Lakes Grandview 4000 Series: $7400
Alside Sheffield (w/Climatech): $6300

Jackie - Homeowner - from 2010

[Site Editor's Response]

I would personally stay away from the Sheffield, although I like their Ultramaxx series, which is their step up window. The Grandview 5000 is also a good window, but no better than the Prism Platinum. I think this is my selection, the Simonton option, followed by the Great Lakes 5000.

Alside Mezzo Windows Prices


Alside Mezzo Pricing

My contractor recommends Alside Mezzo windows which they can install for $335 each, they also offer American Window Company's Grand Mesa line for $315 a window. We also had a door to door window company LEI Home Enhancements coming by for a quote in the morning, they offer Alside Revelations, I don't have a price yet.

Alside Mezzo Costs

Would like your opinion on a price quote we received for 17 Okna 800 windows. 4 of these windows will have the interior wood laminate finish. 2 of the 4 will have a bronze exterior finish with 2 tone grids (GBG).

We really like the Okna but $14,400 installed seems a bit high. Appreciate your thoughts - have learned a lot from your site which has really helped us in this process.

We also looked at Mezzo and Soft-Lite but didn't like the aesthetic as much.

Emily - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Emily, it's hard to speak to how fair the quote is without having anything to compare it to -- like the Mezzo and Soft-Lite (model?) quote. This will tell me a lot and allow me to give you a better assessment. Is the bronze exterior a custom color, this can add quite a bit to the price. The Okna 800 is an excellent window, much better than the Mezzo and better than all but the Soft-Lite Imperial LS and Elements. The more bids you get, the clearer the Okna bid will be, but the 800 is going to be one of the most expensive vinyl windows out there, but also one of the best.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Alside Mezzo Cost Quote

I have also looked at the Alside Mezzo. They average around $500 per window. I initially disregarded them because they do not have a foam insulation but I have seen a couple of good reviews. We live in St. Louis so we have some very cold days but not extreme temps. This company also told me that when they tried to buy the soft lite elements from the manufacturer they were told that soft lite will only sell to one distributer in an area. So I don't think I can find another company to bid on these Thank you for your help.

Kathy - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kathy, the Alside Mezzo is a decent vinyl window, but not a great one by any means. The frame feels flimsy to me, and the sill seems thin. I don't particularly love Alside windows and think there are much better windows out there (like the Soft-Lite). Here's my suggestion -- go back to the Soft-Lite guy and tell him you want to go with the Soft-Lite Pro, but it's out of your price range and ask him if there are any changes you can make in the upgrades, glass, or features to get the per window price to $550 per window ($4950 total). You might be surprised what he says or offers -- the Soft-Lite Pro would be so much better long term than the Mezzo in my opinion.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Alside Mezzo Windows Cost

I have 3 quotes on nine double hung vinyl windows. I'm wondering what the best is for my situation. I'm not planning to be in this house for the rest of my life, maybe 6 or 7 years.

Soft-Lite Imperial LS - $5250

Alside Mezzo Series - $4230

Soft-Lite Pro Series - $4550

Matt - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

I don't love the Mezzo, I feel like the frame is weak, it has a poor design (compared with the Soft-Lite), and loose tolerances. The Soft-Lite Pro is a good window and absolutely worth an extra $320 spread over 9 windows.

The Soft-Lite Imperial LS is an excellent window, one of the best out there, but honestly if you aren't going to be in the house for that many years, go with the Pro, it's a good window, and perfect for your purposes.

Alside Mezzo Pricing

Looking to replace 18 double hung, 4 half rounds & 1 picture in a 30 year old home in the Nashville Tn area. Quotes are as follows

Alside Mezzo $11,250
Seaway Encore $13,986
Simonton VantagePt6100 $14,285
Simonton VantagePt6500 $18,499
Sunrise Restoration $21,754

John - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

John, I think the best value in the bunch is the Seaway Encore. I don't think the VantagePointe is worth the extra money, and the Restorations is a great window, but it's very expensive at $945 per window. The Alside Mezzo is not a bad window, but I think if it were me, I'd do the Encore. I think it's worth the money over the Mezzo.

Of course, installation quality is a big issues as well. Make sure that you feel comfortable with the company who is doing the work.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016


Alside Mezzo Windows Cost Quote

Dane, here are my quotes and the specs on each. All of them include an upper sash 2x4 grid, obscure glass in both sashes of largest window, all white, tan capping on outside.

8 double-hungs approx sizes:

1 @ 42 3/4 x 48 3/4
1@ 33 3/4 x 53 1/2
4 @ 43 3/4 x 67 1/2
2 @ 43 3/4 x 57

Bid 1: Sunrise Vanguard, $10,216

Bid 2a: Alside Mezzo double-pane $5,280 (includes full screens, accidental glass breakage, grids, obscure glass, EPA removal process/materials, removal of existing awnings)

Bid 2b: Alside Mezzo triple-pane $5,760 (includes full screens, accidental glass breakage, grids, obscure glass, EPA removal process/materials, removal of existing awnings)

Bid 3a: Simonton 9800 series $5460 (5% cash discount; Pro Solar 366 low-E with argon gas, flat colonial grids, Ultra-U Plus glass system, full screens)

Bid 3b: Sunrise "Double-hung" (not Essentials) $6455 (5% cash discount; waiting for detail on this bid along with pricing for Simulated Divided Lites grid and OptiView screens)

The Alside is being pushed for it's better, more comprehensive warranty over other manufacturers. The Simonton is being pushed for 9800 series "at the 5500 series price."

I can't compare Sunrise bids because I can't tell if they're the exact same window and features. Significantly different quotes has me puzzled. I like the low profile latch on the Sunrise.

I prefer to go with block and tackle balances over coil but may have to compromise; same with SDL over standard flat grid.

Bid 3 installer also sells Great Lakes brand to consider but I don't have quote for that one.

U-factor must meet or exceed 2016 Energy Star ratings so we can qualify for tax credit. All 3 installation companies are long-standing with A+ BBB ratings.

Thanks, in advance, for your input.

Joanne - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Hi Joanne, there is a lot here to discuss, let's start with the bids. For me, the best value in that bunch is Bid 3b, the Standard Sunrise at $6455. Bid3a on the Simonton 9800 series would be my second choice. The Mezzo is a decent window, but I like the 9800 better and it's cheaper in this case than the Alside Mezzo price quote.

The Sunrise Vanguard is a very good window, but I don't think it's worth that much money over your last bid. The Standard Sunrise window uses the same frame as the Vanguard, but the Vanguard includes a number of nice upgrades and features that don't come standard on the "base" Sunrise window. If there is an upgrade or two that you like, you can always add this to the base model and see how that affects the overall project cost.

Assuming you like the installer for Bid3b and feel like they will do a thorough and professional job, this would be my choice for sure.

Alside Ultramaxx Windows Prices


Alside Ultramaxx Price Bid

Received a quote to furnish and install 8 Alside Ultramaxx white, double hung windows with triple and quadruple weatherstripping. Does not include colonial countour grids. $425 each. Is this a fair estimate?

Mike - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Mike, I think this sounds like a pretty fair quote. The Ultramaxx is a decent window, although if it were me, I would get two more quotes to make sure that this is the best price you can get. It's very tough to talk price without a couple of bids sitting side-by-side. On the face of it though, it sounds pretty good.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Alside Ultramaxx Pricing

For the most part, installers give the Alside Ultramaxx Series decent reviews (but not enough to make our recommended window list). Like any window, good installation is vital. It does feature a pocket sill (which Alside calls a full capture sill), which a lot of contractors don't love as debris can build and and clog the weep holes and eventual lead to mold and mildew inside the frame.

If a homeowner is going to buy Alside, the Ultramaxx is the best option. Compare to Pella vinyl window cost.

Alside Madison Windows Prices


Alside Madison Window Costs

I am comparing these two choice for my home replacement needs. Here is what I have - 35 to 37 windows depending upon configuration

Vytex Fortis is about $24,000

Alside Madison is about $26,000

I do not see reviews for the Madison online. The installer told me it was a custom window just for them. It is a triple pane window about 1 to 1&1/8 inch thick. I think this window might be one of the Alside products listed online. But I do not know which. Offered by an installer on a "marketing promotion" price.

The Vytex Fortis window is two pane. But is being offered by an installer that I know and trust. I was leaning toward this choice before seeing the triple pane Alside option.

I am concerned the Alside product might be junk based on the window world reviews I see and hear.

Brian - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brian, I don't know anything about the Alside Madison window. The Alside Mezzo window is okay and the Ultramaxx is a solid mid range vinyl window. I don't care for the Sheffield or the Excalibur. So I won't recommend going with a window you know nothing about.

I do, however, like the Vytex Fortis. It's a solid window. The Vytex Fortis delivers a .26 U value, .29 SHGC, .05 air infiltration and .53 VT. Very solid numbers and good features. If it were me, I would go with the Vytex -- oh yeah, and it's $2K cheaper!

How often does that happen? :)

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

[Follow Up Question]

I am also unfamiliar with the Madison by Alside - but it is a triple pane window and the salesperson represented it as having .22 u value and .22 SHGC value - is that possible? If so and if you were able to verify, would that change your opinion and willingness to spend the extra $2000?

[Site Editor's Answer]

Brian, while triple pane definitely helps with U-factor and SHGC, it doesn't help if the overall frame construction, corner welds, quality of seals are not as high quality. My own opinion is that long term, a quality-made double pane window is better than a mediocre triple pane window. I think some would argue with this, but that's my own take. Triple pane also brings in more parts to fail...I would stick with the Vytex personally.

Alside Preservation Windows Prices


Alside Preservation Window Costs

Thanks for the quick response. I waited to reply until I had a few more quotes...hoping to get your opinion between these bids on 16 windows.
1. Preservation (Energy Maxx 10 glass option) ~ $10.4k
2. Zen Nirvana (Solar Low-E Super Spacer glass option) ~ $11.5k
3. Soft-Lite Elements (Ultra-S glass option) ~ $11.2k
4. Mezzo (ClimaTech Elite glass option) ~ $7.9k
5. Atrium Series 8900 ~ $5.1k (window only)
6. Atrium Series 8300 ~ $3.1k (window only)

Alex - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Alex, I think this does all go back to how long you are planning to stay in your home, but I think you can get rid of some of these. At the top end, you have the Preservation quote -- I think the Preservation is an overpriced window, so I would toss it. The Zen and Soft-Lite are interesting because the Zen Nirvana is really just the Soft-Lite Classic, which is the mid range Soft-Lite vinyl window. The Elements is their premium vinyl window and the quote is actually less, so that's the best value in that top end by far. I personally would be reticent about the Atrium quotes, the windows are just not as well built as they need to be to provide long term value. The Alside Mezzo is a decent window, but it's nothing great. If it were me, I would use the Preservation quote to see how far down you can negotiate the Elements quote. ("I want to go with you, but the $11.2K is out of our price range. If you could get it somewhere close to the $10.4, I'm ready to sign today" -- something like that. ) If you could get that sucker down to $10.5K, I think you've got yourself a heck of a deal! I'm not sure you can, but I'll bet there is some room there.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Alside Preservation Windows Costs

I just bought a split level home and have had 4 quotes in 2 months and I'm confused. It's for 1 patio window, and a sliding glass door.

RBA - $38k

Preservation - $19k

Window World - $7.5k

Alside Fairfield 80 - $9.5k (triple pane)

Milgard Styleline - $10.5k

Milgard Tuscany - $11.3k

Robyn - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Robyn, I like the Milgard quote the best and would recommend spending the extra $800 for the Tuscany.

Alside Fusion Windows Prices


Alside Fusion Window Costs

I have old aluminum windows that need to be replaced, 11 in all. The contractor I'm using has provided me with 3 options for double pane vinyl windows. I know very little about replacement windows and need some help figuring out what to go with. Thanks in advance.

Crusader by I believe it is Northeast Building Products - $6300

Alside Mezzo - $7000

Aside Fusion - $5600

Donald - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of any of these. Aside doesn't make windows with very strong frames and I'm generally not a fan of the sash design. The Crusader uses a stronger frame than either of the Alside options but I dislike the glazing system they use, the vinyl they use or the sight lines.

The air infiltration numbers on all three models are not going to be less than impressive. Brands I would suggest getting a bid from include Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Kensington, Zen Windows, and Polaris. Get a couple more bids and see how they compare to what you currently have.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016


Alside Double Pane Windows Cost

Please help, I am trying to figure this out, I have 2 quotes, one from Window World in cedar rapids Iowa on a Alside window; double pane, Jam box replacement and interior trim replacement, wood grain vinyl inside and white outside for $8100.00. The other quote is from the Window Source in cedar falls Iowa, these are PlyGem 9000, double pane insulated frame, all the rest is the same wood grain vinyl interior and white exterior for $8300.00.

Brody - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Hi Brody, I would probably give the nod to the Ply Gem, although it depends what model or series Alside we are talking about. I like the Mezzo from Alside, although certainly there are better brands available than either of these two options. How many windows is this for?

Alside 3000 Windows Prices


Alside 3000 Windows vs Anlin Del Mar

Hi Guys: we have had bids on replacement vinyl windows here in Tucson, AZ. We will be replacing 8 sliding windows and 6 picture windows (all aluminum single pane from the 70’s). Obviously, energy efficiency is paramount here in the Arizona desert. I can give you a list of window sizes, etc if you wish!

So, for the Windows World windows (aka Alside 3000), they are double pane, low-e, argon filled. Several of the windows will have Cardinal 340 glass (west and south facing). And several windows need tempered glass since they are less than 18” from the floor. For this there are a total of 14 windows and the cost is $7,998.

We had the local Anlin dealer out here (American Windows and Solar). He quoted the Anlin Del Mar windows. A total of 17 windows. The difference in number of windows is that several of the picture windows are too high (70”+) and Anlin doesn’t make windows that high. So we split the windows into sliding windows on the bottom and picture windows on the top. This has the added advantage of only requiring tempering on the bottom sliding windows. All windows have the same described features as the Alsides -- double pane, low-e, argon filled. Several of the windows will have Cardinal 340 glass (west and south facing). For all 17 windows, the price was negotiated down to $17,000.

So my question is, other than installation quality, is the price difference reflective of the window quality? I don’t mind paying for quality but just need reassurance or feedback that this is worth it. From what I have been able to glean from your (and other sites) the Del Mar are superior. But double the price?

Also, I can scan both quotes and email them if you would like to see them!

Peter - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Peter, the simple answer to your question is yes there is a huge difference in the windows. Window World uses a relatively poorly made vinyl window that will begin to break down somewhere in that year 7, 8 , 9... Anlin makes a good window, but $17,000 is a huge difference than the $8K from WW. I think you need to get two more bids -- one from a Milgard dealer on the Tuscany vinyl window and from an Amerimax window dealer on the Masters Grande or Craftsman Portrait. Perhaps also a Simonton dealer on their Impressions or Reflections series (their better window lines). This is going to give you a better idea of the price ranges you're looking at and I think give you a middle option between the Anlin and WW.

General Alside Windows Prices


Alside Window Costs vs Jeld Wen

Just found your site. We went through Home Advisors, and we've had 4 people out so far. We are stunned at the price of windows. We have 17 windows to replace in a 25-year-old home. It's a retirement community and we really don't need or want to spend tons of money. American Exteriors was "offering us a bargain" at $19,500.

Reve Exteriors (which does the Alside windows) quoted $21,500. We don't need those kinds of windows - we just want single-hung, double-paned, windows with grids (we have a variety of sizes and configurations in 1800 sq. ft. home). How is the Jeld-Wen V-4500 series at Home Depot? I'm hoping to come in $15,000 or less in Nampa, ID. Any other suggestions? We're not trying to be cheap - just reasonable!

Sue - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sue, I understand your shock at the prices and those quotes seem high to me -- you very well might have a complicated project in terms of the installation. The Jeld Wen w4500 series is just an okay window, I'm not sure I would whole heartedly recommend that one. I would avoid any wood if I were you, it requires maintenance and will not be as energy efficient as a total vinyl window.

Does the HD carry the Andersen 100 window? It's my favorite window at HD, although they tend to carry things on a regional basis. If you are going to buy from HD, ask the sales people what their best vinyl window is and go from there. I would find an installer on my own if I were you -- search Angie's List or craigslist and find someone who specializes in window installation and has GOOD reviews. Have them or perhaps a couple of installers come out and give you a bid if you go out and buy the windows yourselves (if you really are looking to save on the project).

The Andersen 100 window shouldn't run you more than $350 per window from HD. The installation should run $100 to $150 per window (unless there is something else going on with the frames and sills). Have the installers break the per window installation cost. Tell them you don't want to pay more than this $150 per window unless they can justify why the costs would be higher than this. At $500 per window completely installed, you are at the $8500 mark.

Keep getting more bids and let's find you a price that makes sense for you.
