Milgard Tuscany vs Anlin Del Mar Infinit E
We are in Tucson, Arizona. We are replacing 6 aluminum frame windows, 47 x 82 each, with Low E, picture windows, dual pane, tempered glass in white. The Milgard bid is from Lowe's, who uses sub-contractors for installation. The Anlin is dealer installed by their employees. Lowe's bid is $5789.

Bette, the warranties from both of these companies should be very similar in terms of what they cover etc. I have a tough time telling anyone to use the big box stores for installation. The sub contractors are often paid a very low per-window rate that does not always lend itself to quality work. However, you could buy the Milgard window from Lowes and then go on yelp or craigslist and find a good local installer.
Anlin Del Mar Windows Quote
Tom, I recently got a quote of $20k for approximately 23 Anlin Del Mar Windows and a sliding door. The estimate included install and disposal of windows. Is this a fair quote?
[Site Editor's Answer]
Fernando, the quote is not out of the question, but it doesn't jump out at me as low by any means. I think you need to get a couple more bids to get a better sense of prices and brands before you move forward. I would try and get a bid on the Milgard Tuscany, the Amerimax Masters Grande Series, the Simonton Impressions 9800 and the Simonton Reflections 5500 series.
Anlin Bayview vs. Ply Gem Pro Series
Hello Tom - Thank you for you website it has helped me understand the complexity of window replacement. 8 windows. I have received two quotes for very different windows:
Carla-Anne, both of those bids are pretty solid I think. While the Anlin Bayview may be a bit better window, I'm not sure it's worth $2K more. The Ply Gem Pro model is a decent middle of the road vinyl window and should serve you well in Los Angeles, where the climate is relatively mild.
Anlin Windows or Polybau
My personal opinion is that Anlin and Polybau are a better choice than Simonton. They are superior when it comes to air leakage and offer a large extrusion. I really like the Anlin windows, but they can be on the pricy side. Find a good installer and try and get a reasonable price, it is possible, especially if you get a number of price quotes beforehand.
Anlin Windows Reviews from a Homeowner
After recently placing eighteen Anlin windows and a sliding door in my property I must say I am really happy with them. I used American Vision for the installation and while they claim customer service is important to them, I didn't find them overly helpful when it came to fixing problems. While I wouldn't hesitate to choose Anlin again, I would not use American Vision as my installer.
Window Seller Advice
When I was in Northern California all the windows were Anlin and customers never had any complaints. Now I'm in Alabama and the trend I am seeing is lazy installers who put new glass in old frames to make the job quick and easy. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that if the owner is aware it's happening, but in many cases the homeowners think they are getting a complete replacement. Just be careful and watch your installer to ensure they are doing what they promised.
The Best Manufactures on the West Coast
Ranking the best window companies on the West Coast I would have to go with Anlin, Amerimax, Milgard and Simonton. All four of these windows offer great features and are top quality. I always suggest customers obtain a number of estimates before making a decision. I would choose Milgard over Anlin is that they are not a large company and you want peace of mind that they will be around to honor their warranty in a few years.
Anlin &- American Vision
I saw Anlin windows and those are what I wanted, but finding an installer was a huge problem for me. The prices were absurd, Anlin recommended American Vision and the estimate I received was half of what I had received from other installers. They were quick to do the installation and arrived on delivery day to complete the job. They did forget the deadbolts and it took a few calls to get them to come back to complete the installation, but they were courteous, professional and apologetic. I was very impressed with the windows and installation.
The Best West Coast Window Companies
As I only work with the windows which you can get in Southern California, chances are if you're somewhere else in the country you may have less or more options available to you. The reason I have chosen these four as my top choices is because they are all excellent quality and they have superior features. I would, however, suggest you get a few estimates before making a final decision.

I haven't had any bad reviews on the Anlin windows. My suggestion is to get a minimum of three quotes which should include installation. Be sure to check the service and warranties on offer before you choose the cheapest quote, you may find one of the more expensive options offer you a better deal.
Anlin or Milgard
Anlin enjoys a good reputation out West. I would suggest you get a bid from Milgard giving you something to compare your quote to. There is a lot of debate as to whether Migard or Anlin is the better product, personally I believe they both make good windows and are very similar. They are both sturdy, visually appealing and durable.
