I got quotes for Vista windows versus Alside Windows. There are 4 windows total. The following are the ratings and quotes. Can anyone help me understand what’s the better deal?

Vista (through Jack’s Wholesale Windows):
Quote: $2,945
U-factor .21
SHGC .16
VT 34%
AI .06

Alside (through 1-800-Hansons):
Quote: $2,766
U-factor .23
SHGC .24
VT 39%
AI .04

Thanks, in advance!

Tim

At that price point, I think there are a handful of windows out there that most of the regular posters would probably recommend over those two choices.

You have a decent budgetary number in hand at this point, I would prefer to see something from Soft-Lite, Sunrise, or Okna if possible.

Those are the two main window companies in the area. I don’t know of any other competitors offering any of the options you listed. I just want to make sure I get the better window for the price I’ll be paying.

As for which model of Alside they offer, I asked and they say it’s custom made for their company. So, I’m not actually sure about that.

I was just quoted $2,489 for Pella 250 series windows as another option. I’ve heard of Pella before and never Alside or Vista. But, I’m not sure if that’s a good deal and a good window. Thoughts?

No one is going to recommend pella. You have Sunrise windows in your backyard and soft lite is in ohio. 2 very respected windows.

Best bet would be to contact Sunrise directly and see who their dealer in your area is. They might have a dealer locator on their website as well.
