Amerimax Masters Grand vs Simonton 5500

noireSeptember 21, 2010

Hey everyone,

Been reading waaay more than I ever wanted to about windows lately, but this forum has been a great resource. Thanks for all of the help.

Onto the question:

I know both Amerimax and Simonton are highly regarded here, but I'm between these two:

Amerimax Masters Grande with e270

Simonton 5500 with e366 solar glass

The Amerimax is about $400 more than the Simonton. I'm in the Denver area, and I know that the Amerimax are made locally, but I also read a few reports of seal issues on them.

Any opinions on the better choice?
