I had Alside Shefield windows put in 2004--then in 2005 I had excabiler windows put in my sunroom--we have good success with them--I think due to high quality job by the installer---will I have problems with them in next few years--I lve near Atl.Ga

RE: questions about older alside windows

Thats an odd question... Will you be bald in 12 years????
You're lucky you dont live in a colder climate, alside sheffield and excalibur have high air leakage rates and poorly designed sills.
Let me know if you are bald in 12 years.

RE: questions about older alside windows

Thank you for your answer--I guess it was a poorly worded question--what I really would like to know are the older alside windows better than the newer ones--or--are they all pretty sad? Will they last me another 10 years--don't think I will last much longer than that--I am already bald--

RE: questions about older alside windows


That was funny about the "already bald" comment.

Should an Alside window last 10 years...yes. Will it likely deliver consistent performance over that span...not as well as some more well engineered windows.

RE: questions about older alside windows

My question is-- are the older alside windows(10/11 years old)better than the new alside windows---or all of them not very good--thanks--I'm still bald

RE: questions about older alside windows

the older alside is the same quality( lack of) as the newer.. you seem be lucky since you have no issues and dont live in a cold climate.
the higher end vinyl windows do come with Rogain, so not only are they energy efficient but they also grow hair.
ROGAIN FOAM insulated frames and sash.

RE: questions about older alside windows

This thread is HILARIOUS , lol.... To answer the question, I'd agree with the above. I would say that product line has gotten slightly better over the years, however please do not mistake that for an endorsement.
