I am needing to replace all my 15 year old windows, original windows from when the house was built. I thought I had found the right one, CPD ASO-A-71-01188-00007, which I believe is an Alside Mezzo the company is reselling under their own name. Reading through many forums and sites, it seems the triple pane windows I am being asked to buy might not be right, however I would like to get feedback from the folks on this board.

Where is the home Izzy and have you looked at just one window?

The house is in Austin, Texas. I have looked at many but did not note the CPD numbers until now as only.

I would not do a triple pane Mezzo in Austin.

Have you reached out to Randy on here? I thought he might still be covering Austin.

They just started offering triple pane glass in the mezzo. Im not very confident in the strength of the frame and have some concerns on whether the mezzo is truly designed to handle triple pane glass. One thought that seems to validate this concern is the fact that when the alside mezzo first was introduced, they couldnt do triple pane glass. Since the design is the exact same as it was, they all of the sudden think the mezzo can handle triple glass ?????

Regarding Randy, he is one of the best window contractors you will fine, no doubt about it.

Sorry guys, I don't cover Austin anymore unfortunately. I'm just too busy in Houston these days.

I too have reservations about the Mezzo window. The frame seems a bit flimsy, and I've never been impressed with the customer service they provide.

Have you considered NT Windows? Their Energy Master, Presidential, or Traditions lines are good solid mid-grade choices.

I wouldn't install that product regardless of location or glass pack. Unimpressive design, too many service issues for my taste. Just my experience

This was one of the first of 8 different windows I saw. It has ratings that are close to some of the nicer units, but I honestly don't get how. It looked and felt like one of the cheapest I saw.

Exactly, the mezzo feels very cheap and flimsy.
