Anlin Windows Reviews And Prices

Anlin windows prices should fall right in the middle of the range of vinyl window costs. Of course, window prices depend on many factors, the most important of which include the model you select, the window size you require, the contractor or company you use and the installation requirements.

Anlin Windows was a family owned business that had been making vinyl windows for nearly 25 years before selling to PGT in 2021. The company has one main factory in Clovis, California that it uses to produce its three main window models. The standard model is the Catalina Series, while the Del Mar Series and Coronado Series are both upgraded models from the Catalina.

In addition, they make two additional models, although neither one is advertised on the company's main website. The first is the Ali'i Extreme Series, which are marketed exclusively in Hawaii. The other is Monte Verde Windows, which is a vinyl window that is marketed in California and other western states as a low cost alternative.

The company is based out of Clovis, Ca. and produces 3 main vinyl window models that generally get good reviews from contractors, installers and homeowners. Anlin is often mentioned as one of the top rated vinyl window manufacturers that is available on the west coast.

Anlin Windows Warranty

Anlin offers their customers a Limited Lifetime Warranty that covers the mainframe, sash and all other components for the life of the window. The company also includes accidental glass breakage, which is quite a nice feature that have covered. The warranty is completely transferrable for the first 15 years from the date of purchase.

All in all, the company offers a quality and comprehensive warranty. Of course, there are exclusions amd limitations that consumers should always read thoroughly before purchasing these or any windows.

Anlin Windows vs Andersen Windows

Anlin Windows vs Andersen Windows - how do these two companies stack up to one another? First off, Anlin is certainly less well known than Andersen. (Andersen is probably the best known window company in the country.) Anlin manufactures vinyl windows and doors exclusively, while Andersen makes composite, and wood clad series. (Andersen is best known for its wood clad 400 series, which is a very nice unit.)

Anlin was a family owned company until they were purchased by a much larger company some years back that owns a number of window companies - amongst other holdings. Andersen is owned by the Andersen corporation, which also owns Renewal By Andersen. RBA, as it is sometimes referred to, sells a fibrex window (somewhat similar to the Andersen 100 series). They are a franchised operation but still operate under the umbrella of the parent corporation.

From a quality perspective, both of these companies have very good reputations. They really don't compete against one another for their customer base because they sell should different window frame materials. It's usually vinyl that competes with vinyl so there is none of that here.

Costwise, both of these companies are at the top of the price spectrum. However, the top range of Anlin is $1000 to $1200 per window fully installed, while the top of Andersen Windows cost is more like $2000 to $2500 per window fully installed.

Anlin Panoramic Price Quote

Hi John, I was on your website and wanted your thoughts about an estimate I received for 4 Anlin Panoramic windows.

I live in Englewood, Colorado. The condo is on the third floor and the replacement windows will be two side-by-side single hung windows per window opening. One opening is 95 x 59" and the other is 75 x 59". The cost is $2603 per two or $5206 total for all windows. Your thoughts on the Panoramic and on the price. I would appreciate if you can also share a list of vendors in Colorado that you may recommend.

Thank you.

Irene, hi, thanks for the question. I definitely think that the price is in the ballpark of fair. Of course, without knowing the details it's impossible for me to say. I really like the Panoramic and think it is a great option. I'd suggest collecting a few more bids and then let's take a look at all of the bids against one another and go from there - then we will have our answer as to whether that price point on the Anlin windows cost quote is fair or inflated. You've got one solid bid, which is a great start!

Anlin Windows vs Simonton

While researching windows for our home in the Los Angeles area, I came across your website. Our house can get scorching hot in the summer. We have 16 sliders, six large fixed frame, and two glass door sliders. Our home has extreme temperature issues. Should we be considering the Coronado series instead or exploring other glass options? Thank you for your help with this project!

Anlin Del Mar (with Malibu Doors) = $34K
Anlin Panoramic (with Malibu Doors) $30K
Simonton Daylight Max = $31K

Sue - Homeowner - November, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Sue, I would say that either of the Anlin options on the board would be the way to go. The price spread between the Del Mar and Panoramic is about what I would expect to see. Either of these options is a good one so I think it just depends on your budget and timeline in the home.

Anlin Del Mar Windows Reviews

I will be replacing 30 windows next month (I hope). I'm living in Phoenix Arizona where properties values have gone sky high in the past 8 years. What I've posted below is the per window replacement cost. This is for full frame install, which they said was considerably more expensive than inserts. Why is this?

Simonton 6200 $865 each (Simonton 6200 Windows Reviews)
Milgard Styline $900 each
Del Mar Series $1195 each
Apex Insignia $1475 each
Pella 250 Series $1725 each

Thanks in advance.

Thomas - Homeowner - November, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Thomas, full frame installation is roughly $200 to $250 more per window than inserts. The process insures a better mount into the frame and better protects against potential water damage (which probably isn't a huge concern in Phoenix). Additionally, it provides more glass area than with insert installs. (Apex Energy Solutions Reviews)

In terms of the quotes, I like the Anlin Del Mar the most. Not cheap, but in comparison to the others, this one makes the most sense to me from a long term value perspective.

Horizontal Sliding Window sized 47 x 58 - price $1488
Patio Door sized 93 x 81 - price $6946

Herb - Homeowner - October, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Herb, I would say these are at the higher end of the price spectrum but still within reason. If the installation company is good, then I think its justified. If not, I might opt for something else.

Kristie - Homeowner - September, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Kristie, I tend to agree with you on this one that the bid sounds high. For instance, a 47" x 47" Single Slider is a pretty standard size and their quote is $1000. Is this new construction installation or retrofit/pocket? This certainly makes a difference in terms of the per window price point.

My advise is to collect a few more quotes for comparison -- you need to see what the competition will bid your job out at -- this is the only real way to know if you're getting a fair market price on your project.

Anlin Windows vs Milgard

I'm in the Denver metro area, I'm planning to replace some windows. I have trustworthy quotes from an installer. Here's the information for both estimates: The Milgard Tuscany estimate was $10,100. I desire sound reduction glass because I'm noise-sensitive and tired of hearing every little thing outside my house. The Anlin Catalina cost estimate is $9,400

Both Anlin and Milgard will likely provide double pane "dissimilar thickness" style glass. The Milgard quote is about $700 more in total, but that difference isn't significant enough to sway my decision. My installer has more experience with Milgard but maintains a better working relationship with Anlen. They have been pretty unbiased I'd say and they think either one would work.

I think negotiating through Anlin might be easier with the installer having a better working relationship. However, I don't want to assume anything incorrectly. I appreciate your advice.

Javi - Homeowner - August, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Javi, the Anlin would be my pick over the Milgard in this instance. It's the better brand and slightly better window series in the Catalina. The fact that it is cheaper is fantastic! Milgard Windows Pricing

Anlin Windows Reviews Arizona

Hi John, appreciate the info on your site. What brands do you recommend for Phoenix? Obviously not much cold but sun and heat.

I checked and Sunrise Windows says they do not have any dealers in the area.  

Shops I have spoken to so far are Anlin or Alside or a local company energy Shield. I haven't gone to Home depot or Lowes. Home Depot Windows Prices

Prefer narrower frames but more of midrange price. This project is rental with only 5 windows and a sliding door, but bigger/nicer project coming up so learning.  

Recommendations on manufacturers appreciated. Your site says you have a list of recommended windows, I would appreciate a copy.

Thanks very much,

Anlin Windows Reviews On The Catalina

Anlin/Catalina- I have a quote of $10,810 for 12 windows that include two egress bedroom openings, 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. Egress Windows Cost Calculator

Shelly - Homeowner - January, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

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...
