Anlin Del Mar Windows Reviews

Anlin Windows is one of the best brands available on the west coast, and across much of the western half of the U.S. There really isn't a bad window series from the company, but their premium Del Mar stands out as a true gem.

I give Anlin Windows a 4.6 out of 5 star rating based on 23 Anlin window reviews via our Anlin manufacturing page. Use the breadcrumb link above to read about this popular brand.

The Anlin Del Mar window is the upgraded model from the Catalina and will run 10% to 15% more than the Catalina Series. The series has a frame depth of 2 7/8" and an extrusion thickness of .080". In addition, the window uses a double strength glass, has equal sightlines, a single vent latch, silver coated glass and a Platinum Elite spacer system. While the Del Mar and Catalina are similar, the Del Mar includes these following upgrades: a green foam injection in the frame, sash fiberglass inserts, and a thermal reinforcement. The result is a stronger window with slightly better energy efficiency.

The single hung Delmar with the InfinitiPlus window glass will deliver a .22 SHGC and .22 U-factor, .44 VT and a 49 condensation resistance. Expect an air infiltration around .05 for the single hung and .08 for the horizontal slider.

The Del Mar is available as a single hung, slider, combination, as well as a number of geometrical shapes and options. Other options include fourteen frame color options, two window glass packages, two casing styles, five hardware materials and 3 grid patterns.
The Anlin Del Mar Series gets a 4.6 out of 5 star rating.

Anlin Del Mar Window Costs

Theis window should run $700 to $900 fully installed with standard installation. This rather large price range is based on the installation requirements, the upgrades and components that you opt for. Assume about 30% of the price for the installation. The Del Mar series is comparable in cost to the Sunrise standard window and the Polaris ThermalWeld.

The DM series comes with the company's Limited Lifetime Warranty that covers the mainframe, sash and all other components for the life of the window.

Anlin Del Mar vs ProVia Endure

John, I'm here in Scottsdale Arizona and we are getting rid of our old aluminum windows because they are nearly falling out in places. Obviously we are replacing them - 20 in all. We've received two quotes up to this point - one on the ProVia Endure for $28.5K and the other on the Anlin Del Mar series for 23.9K. Which is the better deal would you say?

Regan - Homeowner - November, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Regan, I would put these two series on par with one another so I would have to give the nod to the Del Mar. Both great options and I would stress that the installation is going to be a big part of the project.

Anlin Del Mar Windows Reviews 2023

Thanks for your help on our query. We ended up picking the Anlin Del Mar window because it fits our budget. We received quotes from four brands, ranging from $14K to $22K but the Anlin price came in at $15,000. This is for 19 windows.

We're not after the fanciest ones; we want something strong and affordable. Some folks suggest pricey materials like fiberglass over vinyl. What are your thoughts on using vinyl material in Colorado, especially at an elevation of 6,000 feet?

Your thoughts on this would help us decide.

Mary - Homeowner - November, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Mary, a quality vinyl window is just fine at altitude. Here's the issue though - make sure that the window is made at the same altitude or they use the proper methods to transport it. The different pressures from 0 ft altitude to anything over 6000 ft can have bad effects on the gas fills.

Anlin Del Mar Windows Reviews

Hello John, new update on my window bid. Today I had a company named Northwest in Rancho Cordova, CA give me a quote for the Anlin Del Mar (6units) and 2 Anlin Malibu series glass sliding doors. Financing it would be about 13.5k and straight cash would be about 12.2k. What are your thoughts on this quote given to me?

Marcos - Homeowner - August, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

The company seems to get good reviews and that's a pretty fair price for what you are getting replaced. The cash price is a good option -- if you have cash sitting around :)

Anlin Del Mar Window Cost

Hello I am in dire need of help. I had a salesperson come to my house and talk to my wife and I about installing 6 windows (5 regular and one bent window) and 2 glass sliding doors in our home. They are Anlin Del Mar. They gave us a quote of $19,900 does this seem fair to you? Over priced? Please get back to me ASAP please.

Gene - Homeowner - October, 2022

Website Editor's Answer

Gene, that sounds VERY expensive to me. My advice is to continue to collect bids -- 4 in total -- this number will tell you whether the initial bid you have is way out of line or is fair market price for your project specifics.

Editor John - October, 2022

Gene's Reply

John thank you so much for your advice, I will cancel the deal with that contractor immediately. I will look into these different options that you recommended and thank you so much for all of this information. I am a new homeowner as of 3 years ago and at this age of 25 I don't have experience with renovations.

I am looking for a good quality window that is energy efficient but also not looking for top of the line brands unless it is absolutely worth it at a great price. I have 3 different contractors set to visite me within the next three days. I hope they dont drive the same bargain as the guy that came to visit me last. He offered us a deal that was only available if we signed a contract that same night. My ignorance got the best of me and we signed. However we have 3 business days to cancel (thank God) so that is what we will be doing. I appreciate your help so much John. God bless you.

Hey Gene, yeah I hate when company salesmen try the high pressure sales pitch -- just don't go in for it and tell them all at the outset that you're collecting bids for the next couple of days and then you'll make a decision based on price and quality of the window series they quote you on -- also tell them you'd love to get their best bid upfront in order to to compare apples-to-apples. Price is important, but getting the job done right is also key.

Let me know when you collect all of your bids and let's go through them and find you the best option!

Anlin Del Mar Window Reviews

We are looking to change out our 28 existing single hung windows. The Mi 1255 vinyl single hung priced out at $16,895 going with the clay color and requiring two windows to have tempered glass since near a door. Is this a good price?

I started looking at a different installer window the DM series and kind of think it might be a better window at first glance. I have not had anybody come out yet to give me a price. On a web site I found the average cost of the windows seemed to be very similar around 500-700 a window depending on zip code area. So which window is the better of the two? We live in the DFW area metroplex where it can get very hot and very cold and windy.

Mark - Homeowner - October, 2022

Website Editor's Answer

Mark, the MI 1255 series is more of a builder grade option, so the quality really isn't there. The Delmar is an excellent series, but it will cost quite a bit more, I can almost guarantee that. That $500 to $700 was kind of pre-COVID pricing. You might be looking at more like $700 to $1000 per, but it really depends on the project itself. Best to get three or four bids as that is going to give you a much better understanding of what your project is worth. MI Windows Cost

Anlin Del Mar Windows Cost Quote

Hi, appreciate your input on 2 quotes I received in the DFW area. We are replacing 26 windows and received a quote for Delmar and for the Alside Mezzo. The Anlin quote was for $34,000 (after their 40% off special) and the Alside quote was for $16,500.

I understand that the Anlin is a better option but struggling to decide if it is worth double the price. Just wondering if you felt either of these quotes were “out of wack” and if not if the Anlin is that much better of a product?

Many thanks for your advice.

Bill - Homeowner - May, 2022

Website Editor's Answer

Bill, yes the Anlin is the better option, but not more than 2x better. I would much prefer to put the Alside Mezzo in for $16.5K then pay $34K for the Del Mar series.

Anlin Del Mar vs Catalina Series

We have decided to go with Anlin brand but struggling with going with the Delmar vs Catalina. Quote for 15 single hungs: $10,000 for Catalina and $12,000 for DelMar. Are these reasonable quotes and is Del Mar that much better than Catalina? Thanks.

Mandy - November, 2020

Site Editor's Response

Mandy, the Catalina and the DelMar are both good options. Both use the same extrusion and msot of the same features. The DelMar includes these following upgrades that the Catalina model does not: a green foam injection in the frame, sash fiberglass inserts, and a thermal reinforcement. The result is a stronger window with slightly better energy efficiency.

Now, is this worth an extra $2000 -- I tend to think so if you plan to be in your home long term. Let's say 10 years is my over under for whether it's worth it.

Editor John M. - November, 2020

Anlin Del Mar vs Catalina

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

Shelly - Homeowner - January, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

Shelly, there isn't too much difference between the two series, they both use the exact same frame. I like the standard upgrades on the DelMar, 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...

Anlin vs Milgard

We are looking to purchase window and sliding door, we are trying to make a choice between the Anlin vs Milgard, specifically the Milgard Tuscany vs Anlin Del Mar. Could you help us with that? Thanks.
Louis - Homeowner - June, 2017

Website Editor's Answer

The Milgard Tuscany and Delmar are pretty darn close in terms of quality and price (actually the cost might vary, but it shouldn't by much). I like both of these options, although I might opt for the Tuscany myself because I feel like Milgard is a bigger name and easier to find installers and parts down the road. Honestly though, this is a personal preference.

I would say make the decision based on the quality of the installers and company who you are working with over the small difference between the products themselves. This will be a bigger factor down the road than the series (again because they are so close in quality.)
