Window Comparisons Wincore 5400 and Alside Mezzo
I have been researching windows to replace in our older home that we do NOT plan on reselling; hence, my investment is “life-long”.
However, having said that, I am still on a budget and want to make the best decision as this is a substantial investment. In my research I have not found any glaring differentiations between the 2 above products. When I received quotes last fall, the prices were comparable; however, at least one of the installers (Wincore) has stated that prices have gone up since we met last fall and I’m awaiting that new price. I’m also awaiting any new pricing (if applicable –as that installer didn’t address any potential price increases) of the Alside product.
But again, as of last fall their price quotes were comparable (i.e., nearly spot on), but I’m in need of any information on the products themselves—any differentiation factors that I should be aware of? Any distinguishing aesthetic factors? I read that Wincore 5400 is a bit bulkier (due to energy efficiency). Is that also true for the Wincore 7700? I’m also considering if something happens to the window, the ease with which I would have to call the installer back to resolve any issues.
Appreciate any additional insights you can provide. I have copied myself on the email address above.

Ruby, the bulkier the window often the more energy efficient. The Alside Mezzo always feels a bit flimsy to me and I would go with the Wincore 5400 or better yet the Wincore 7700 over the Alside Mezzo myself. I think it will last longer and the prices should be comparable to one another.

Wincore 5400 Price Quote
I have a 20 year old manufactured home in need of 7 new windows. Sear came out and priced Wincore 5400 and 7700 series. They said it does require more labor to install j channel and extra trim work. But 7 Wincore 5400 $5869 and Wincore 7700 $6960. This was with a 10% off discount if I buy that day (which I did). But I have till Friday to cancel and still get a full refund so decided to do some research as this is a lot of money for me to spend.

Jennifer, sorry for the late reply. That price sounds high to me. Sears often jacks up their prices so I would definitely get some more bids to compare this one too. Maybe the Simonton Impressions 9800 or the Simonton 5500 Reflections series, both of which are comparable windows to the Winocre 7700. Simonton will definitely have a rep in your area if you google Simonton windows in [your city and state].
