Recommendations - Alside Ultramaxx or Simonton 5500
New to the forum, but have read alot of postings over the past few weeks. I have received numerous windows quotes over the past few weeks and have narrowed it down to two local companies that have been in business for 20 plus years.
1. Simonton 5500 windows - 14 DH, flat colonial grids, double strength glass, loe -366 coating, 60/40 split- 7500
2. Alside Ultramaxx windows 14 DH, contoured prarie grids, double strength glass, SolarBan 60 low e coating, 60/40 splits - 6500
Both companies are doing the installs with complete wrapping of the moulding in pvc coated aluminum.
Does it just come down to price, or are the Simonton's that much better to command a $1000 difference?
