Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

The Vanguard quote sounds about normal and the Essentials sounds low. Same contractor? If you have every handled or unloaded an Essentials off of a truck vs. a Vanguard, you will feel $200 per unit difference. Yes, from the same contractor.

What he said. Seriously though...if you look at the Essentials next to a Vanguard, you won't understand how both windows are made by the same company and how they could put their name on an Essentials when they produce something like the Vanguard.

Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

Hello, I got two quotes for Alside Proline 2200 and Sunrise Essentials for replacement windows. I couldn't find the model called Proline 2200 from the Alside website, but that's what an installer is selling. "Essentials" is the very basic model of Sunrise, and I see that it is not favorably viewed i...
