Advanced Window in Chicago

genebelorOctober 9, 2008


I am planning on replacing all windows in my house (20+ holes). So far I have received 2 quotes from installers using different window manufacturers:

1) Alside windows

2) Advanced window

Alside windows are more than 30% more expensive than Advanced windows. Has anyone had any experience with windows made by Advanced Window Corporation?

I was wondering which window you decided to go with, why, and if you are satisfied.

I am currently looking at both brands, as well as others.

I SAW ALSIDES BUT WENT WITH SCHUCO who is now Force V. ITS JUST A BEAUTIFUL WINDOW.I also think its the best constructed vinyl out there.

I had Advanced Windows installed. The price difference between Advanced and Alside was so big, so it was an easy decision.

Most of my windows are casements, some are fixed picture, and my wife's favorite - awning window in the kitchen.

The only concern that I have about the windows is condensation: most likely it is caused 50% humidity @ 71F I keep inside the house when outside temperature is 10F-20F. I will turn down the humidifier and see if it helps.
