Alside Windows Prices

Alside windows prices range from $20 to $70 per square foot, depending on the upgrades, options and who you buy the window from. Alside has been around for over six decades and manufactures a number of vinyl windows that range from low end vinyl windows like the Excalibur to very solid mid range vinyl window models such as the Ultramaxx.

Alside has a bit of a mixed reputation in the industry, depending on who you ask and which window you ask them about. Their detractors say the company uses shoddy design and construction, as evidenced by their use of the snap in window sill for most, but not all, of their windows use (the Sheffield and Mezzo do not use this pocket sill). A fair number of window installers and industry experts feel that this is a poor overall design (a welded sloped sill is the preferred design choice, but is more expensive to manufacture). These same industry experts have also pointed to inconsistencies in the batch production

There are other contractors and industry experts who feel that Alside makes a decent vinyl replacement window (with the exception of the Excalibur). Alside offers a limited lifetime warranty on most of their windows and the newer models such as the Mezzo will be transferrable to the next homeowner. I'm not the biggest fan of Alside Windows, but the Mezzo and the Ultramaxx are decent windows, assuming the replacement window cost is competitive.

Alside Excalibur Windows Prices

The Excalibur is the entry level vinyl window from Alside that is a popular, but unimpressive, model. It is often the model that Window World uses for their $189 special - see all Window World prices here.

-- Window Itself: $20 to $30 per square foot --

Alside Sheffield Window Costs

The Sheffield is a step up from the Excalibur, but still not a top rated vinyl window by any means.

-- Window Itself: $35 to $45 per square foot --

Alside Ultramaxx Prices

The Ultramaxx from Alside is the higher end vinyl window that is considered a decent option. It still gets mixed reviews from installers, mainly because of the snap in sill, which many consider an inherent design flaw.

-- Window Itself: $40 to $50 per square foot --

The Alside Mezzo vinyl window is a newer vinyl window option from the company, although in actuality the Mezzo is a just an updated version of the Excalibur - same window, different sill.

Alside Windows Warranty

Alside offers a lifetime limited warranty on their vinyl windows that protects against material and workmanship defects on the mainframe and sash. It also provides a lifetime warranty on all moving parts, the fiberglass screen and frame, as well as the insulated glass unit. For the first year, Alside will cover the labor costs of replacing or repairing the windows, after that the homeowner is responsible for the cost of the labor.

The warranty is transferrable, although the company offers a prorated schedule to subsequent owners as to the percentage cost that they will offer. Exclusions and limitations exist, so we urge consumers to read the entire warranty prior to purchase.

Alside Promenade And ProVia EcoLite

I have received a bid for ProVia EcoLite windows for 8 windows and an Alside Promenade patio door for $6228 - installed. I am in Louisville Colorado. What is your opinion of these products and pricing? Thanks! Reta

Website Editor's Answer

Reta, the ProVia EcoLite window is a good mid range vinyl window. I would have it in my home. I'm sort of 50/50 on the Alside doors. Incidentally, ProVia makes excellent doors, that's where the company got their start. You may want to have them give you a quote on their patio doors just to see how they compare.

In terms of pricing, I think the quote is very fair. I would suggest getting two more just to see what else is out there. You may be able to use a lower quote to go back to the rep who gave you theProvia bid and see if he will match it. Nothing like a little competition to drive down the bid price :)

Alside and Amerimax windows should have companies in your area that carry these brands. These would be comparable to the ProVia/Alside bid you have.

Alside Mezzo vs Stanek

I have a nicer home with wood windows where some need replaced. I'm looking at Alside Mezzo and Stanek. I have no idea how to shop for replacement windows. Are these two quality? How do they compare? Should I stay with wood? Is there a better option that would be more fitting for a home valued around $300K? My zip code is 44060. Thank you for any guidance.

Laurie, I would say that the Alside Mezzo is a middle of the road vinyl window. I like the Stanek vinyl window better, I would put that in the high end of the mid range vinyl window market. I would definitely recommend making the jump from wood to vinyl, unless you HAVE TO HAVE wood for aesthetics reasons. A quality vinyl window makes so much more sense for most homeowners -- price, warranty, maintenance, performance.

I would get a couple more bids if I were you -- see if local companies carry Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Zen, Polaris, or even Wallside. Feel free to shoot me the bid price, window series, and project price and I can weigh in on what I think is your best option.
