Alside Sheffield Windows Reviews
Explore Alside Sheffield windows reviews, pricing, ratings and warranty information on this replacement vinyl window. The Sheffield model is a step up from the Alside Excalibur, but still not a top rated vinyl window by any means. This model uses a sloped sill and is virtually identical to the Ultramaxx Window (although the Ultramaxx does use a snap in sill and has a middle lift rail that the Sheffield does not).
The Sheffield is a bulkier than the Excalibur model and uses a multi chambered design, which will lower that U-value to roughly .29 with the ClimaTech glass option. Note: Alside offers the Sheffield window for western states and the Sheffield II for the remainder of the country, these windows are virtually identical except for a few minor climate-related details.
The Alside Sheffield windows feature the following; a multi-chambered fusion-welded frame and sash, a beveled mainframe on the horizontal sliders and double-hungs, quad 4 weatherstripping, double-strength glass, a PPG Intercept Spacer System, a steel reinforced meeting rail and a constant force balancing system. Additional features include drop-in glazing, an interlock on the sash's metting rail for better security, a compression bulb seal, a capture sloped sill, and fully extruded lift rails.
Consumers can also choose from prairie, craftsman, and colonial grid patterns, as well as custom grid pattern upgrades. The Sheffield and Sheffiled II models are available in a wider selection of interior frame color options than with the Excalibur that includes white, cherry, foxwood, dark oak, light oak, maple, soft maple and beige. Consumers can choose exterior frame color options that include white, castle gray, american terra, forest green, english red, desert clay, hudson, khaki and beige.
