Alside vs Great Lakes

jfhenry01February 3, 2010

I am currently considering two different vinyl windows and I am interested in feedback on the two brands and models. I am considering the Alside Excalibur and the Great Lakes Seabrook. The quote that I have been given is within $400 dollars with the Great Lakes Seabrook being about $400 dollars more than the Alside. Are these two brands and models comparable? Are the both quality windows? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The Seabrooke is the better of those two options.

I agree with Windows on Washington. The Excalibur has a very high air infiltration rate.

I have 10 Great Lakes Seabrooke double hung windows installed in a 4 season room. The seem like a very well built window and operate nicely. This is the first winter of using the room but it has been warmer than I expected it to be.
