AMSCO Studio vs. Milgard Trinsic
Here are 3 quotes. Two for AMSCO Studio. One is with laminated IGU and one with 1/4 over 1/8 glass IGU. One is for Milgard 1/8 over 1/8.
I've read having offset glass helps with reducing sound transfer and with the thicker glass should work better with forced entry with security film.
I'm having forced entry security film applied after installation by another company. Would it be better to have it applied on the thicker outside pane than the inside? Or should I have the thicker pane on the inside for better integrity?
Any and all advice would be appreciated.

Stephen, I would choose the Milgard Trinsic over the Amsco brand any day of the week. Milgard isn't the best in the business, but with professional installation, I would say you will be good to go for a good 20 to 30 years. It looks like the company that puts in the Milgard windows has a very solid reputation/reviews, so I think you should be good to go!
