Well the 5 windows were installed yesterday without any problems. One screen had a small tear in it so we will be getting a new screen. Outside of that, the only thing I could see was that one of the sashes had a tiny bit of "gunk" on the glass. A little elbow grease and some windex took care of tha...

My windows were scheduled to be installed this morning but rain has cancelled things. We were able to reschedule for tomorrow morning, so I will post soon after with a report of how things went.

On paper, the Alside windows look fine. I would really like an additional choice in the $600 - $700 range.

From what I have been able to determine as far as Alside windows are concerned, their model heirarchy is something like this: Excalibur < UltraMax < Ultimate 2000 < Sheffield < Preservation. I went to a web site that has their dealer info on it and I could not see much difference between the Ultimat...

Got my final quote on the Ultimate 2000 windows. The price was $2982 for the 5 windows installed.

Now it is decision time.

You might want to post this in the "window questions" forum since this is a "window review" forum. There seem to be several active posters in the Chicago area who should be able to offer some good insight to your situation.

Re: Price...

Both prices seem in-line of what a quality windows should run, however I would consider looking into windows that have the following, so long as you’re in that price range: 1. Triple Glass 2. Krypton Gas 3. Soft-Coat Low E 4. Either Intercept or TPS spacer. 5. Steel re-enforced The above features...
