Anlin Windows Reviews – Del Mar Series

The Del Mar is the high end vinyl window from the company and considered a very good vinyl window by many – a great option in the western states.

Anlin Del Mar Series Quote

I received a quote of $27,200 for 11 Anlin Del Mar-e windows (in various sizes for a 2 story stucco house) and 1 Malibu sliding patio door in San Jose, CA. This quote is for all new construction. What do you think of the price?

Another company quoted me $24,505 for 11 Anlin Panoramic series windows and 1 Malibu sliding patio door.

I personally think both quotes are extremely high. What do you think about both quotes and would you sign a contract with either of them? Both companies did not bulge much on their pricing, saying that quoted pricing was their best offer.

Both companies guarantee they have the best installers and have lifetime warranty on their install/labor. I like the Anlin windows and warranties, but not sure if it’s worth paying that much.

Thank you for your help,

Tam I think both of those quotes were on the higher side. But you probably need two more bids to tell for sure. Maybe a bid from an Amerimax dealer, a Simonton dealer (only on their best vinyl series), and perhaps a Milgard dealer.

Not all will have dealers in your zip code, but a google search for “Anlin windows in [your city and state]” (as an example) should bring up local companies who carry the brand.

For additional free bids, check out our Price Quote FormPrice Quote Form on the site. It only takes about a minute, there is no obligation to use the bids, and you will receive 2 to 4 local bids (average number is 3). This definitely helps me out!

Thank you for responding to my email. In the end, I received three quotes for Anlin windows. It was very interesting to compare all three companies and to make a final decision on our window project.

Don’t think I could handle more quotes from different brands…I was already getting confused with 3 companies and 1 brand. 🙂 All companies have 20 plus years in business with plenty of good and bad reviews.

First Bid: $26,500 for Del Mar-e series with SunMatrix

Second Bid: $24,505 for Panoramic series

Third Bid: $23,468 for Del Mar-e series

Going with Company C — thank you so much for all of your help!

Anlin Windows vs Milgard

Anlin has a good West Coast reputation. If you have only received a price quote from Anlin, I’d make sure you get another from a company like Milgard. Some say Anlin makes a higher quality window than Milgard, which may or may not be true.

However, Milgard is a much bigger company while Anlin has only one plant and you just don’t want the company to disappear and have no recourse. Personally, I don’t think they are going anywhere, but it’s certainly a consideration to be aware of. Not a bad idea to compare Anlin window costs to Milgards as well.

Anlin Windows Reviews And Complaints

We recently put 18 Anlin windows and 1 sliding door in my house, we bought them and had them installed by a local company. The windows themselves are high quality, however, the customer service from American Vision was horrible.

They make a lot of advertising claims about how devoted they are to the customer etc. and that was supposed to be the reason the charge more for their windows and services.

Then, we had the windows installed and had several little issues that needed to be touched up to make the installation complete. It has now been 10 weeks and so far no action on their part to fix the problems, despite numerous calls.

They took 5 weeks to even send someone out to look at the issues we discovered. I’d recommend Anlin, but I certainly would be very cautious about buying them from American Vision.

Anlin’s Overall Reputation

I do all of my work on the East Coast so I personally am unfamiliar with their lines, but from all of the reviews I have seen, they are quite well regarded. Anlin windows manufactures only on the West Coast to the best of my knowledge.

However, if you are in the process of searching for windows, I would recommend that you should get at least three estimates so you can compare product and installation cost. This will give you enough knowledge to make an informed decision.

Anlin Windows Reviews

The Coronado Series from Anlin is a better window than the Simonton equivalent. The Anlin extrusions used are in the .080 range, the Simontons are in the .072 range. The Anlin uses a Super Spacer (about as good as the TPS from Schuco), Simonton use the intercept as a standard feature on most of their lines. Long story short, the Anlin performance numbers are better than the Simonton.

In my opion, Anlin is a higher end window in my opinion for the West coast. You should certainly negotiate to get the best price from a good installer. Make sure you thoroughly check out the distributor you go with to make sure they are going to focus on good customer service and that they have a solid track record.

Talk with 3 or 4 references and ask about the installation techniques to make sure they don’t take short cuts.

Anlin vs Cascade

Often I find that Cascade windows are priced similar to Anlin or CertainTeed and in my opinion this should not be the case. I consider Cascade as a builder grade window and don’t compare to the newer windows on the market when it comes to build quality or construction. From what I can see they offer a good warranty which is why they are considered a decent window. BTW, love your anlin windows reviews, very helpful…

Therefore, I would recommend looking at CertainTeed over Cascade. The Somerton range is better than Milgard. Anlin are good windows and are durable with impressive U-Factor numbers. If you can get Anlin in the same price range as Cascade or CertainTeed, I would go with the Anlins.
