Anlin vs. Catalina Series
Anlin/Catalina- I have a quote of $10,810 for 12 windows that include two cut-downs egress bedroom windows, one kitchen build-up, & 12' Malibu slider door. Is this a good price? Is the difference in price and efficiency between the Catalina and Del Mar window worth the cost increase? Thank you for your advice.

Shelly, there isn't too much difference between the two window lines, they both use the exact same frame. I like the standard upgrades on the Del Mar, such as the insulating foam and slightly better roller on the slider. I think it's worth the 10 to 15% hike in price (assuming that's what it is). The quote you have from the Anlin rep looks pretty darn fair to me.
I don't think it hurts to get a couple more quotes to see if there is a better deal out there though. You may also be able to bring a lower quote to the Anlin dealer and see if he will come down a bit off his price. Something to think about...
