Alside Ultramaxx Windows Reviews
Explore Alside Ultramaxx windows reviews, costs, ratings, warranty and options on Alside's premium vinyl window. The Ultramaxx gets mixed reviews from installers, mainly because of the capture sill, instead of the true welded sloped sill. However, the Ultramaxx is a sturdier and better built window (i.e. thicker frame) than the Sheffield Series, although these two models are virtually identical. The Ultramaxx is a decent vinyl window if the price quote is competitive.
The Alside Ultramaxx window features 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, and a steel reinforced meeting rail. Additional features include drop-in glazing, an interlock on the sash's metting rail for better security, a compression bulb seal, a full capture sill, and triple lift rails.
Consumers can also choose from prairie, craftsman, and colonial grid patterns, as well as custom grid pattern upgrades. The Ultramaxx model is available in a wider selection of interior frame color options than with the Alside Excalibur Series 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 and architectural bronze.
