At BM Windows, one of the replacement window brands we often quote to potential customers is Anlin. We are true believers in their products and have a great amount of respect for the company and how they do business.
We often find ourselves needing to educate potential customers about Anlin replacement window products, since the company isn’t necessarily a “household name” like Milgard or Simonton. But just because a company has a more recognizable name or brand doesn’t mean its better. It may mean the company has been around longer, or it could be because the company’s products are sold in the big box stores. Anlin’s products are only available through authorized replacement window dealers—and only on the west coast—making them a brand you don’t see everywhere.
However, Anlin replacement windows are some of the best windows you can buy for your San Diego home. They are extremely energy efficient and are built to last! Certain features that are considered “upgrades” by other replacement window brands come standard in Anlin windows. They also stand behind their products with an excellent warranty—one of the best warranties in the replacement window industry!
A while back, we got a comment on our Yelp page from a reviewer who calls himself “Honest A.” We had given him a quote on Anlin replacement windows and doors, which was apparently higher than a quote he received from another replacement window company for Simonton windows and doors. He took to Yelp to claim that our prices are too high for an “off brand” like Anlin.
One of our managers, Jim, posted a very well-reasoned response to Honest A. He explained that Anlin is a smaller, regional company, not an “off brand”, as the reviewer claimed. He went on to say:
Personally, I regard Anlin products superior in performance, efficiency, workmanship, durability, standard features, value and their warranty better than virtually any vinyl product on the market nationwide. Just because they are a west coast company does by no means make them an ‘off brand’. All Anlin products are Title 24 compliant without any ‘upgrades’ required. I don’t believe the same can be said about Simonton products.”
He concluded by asking the reviewer to make sure he was comparing “apples to apples” when it comes to replacement window products.
You can buy replacement windows for your San Diego home at many different price points. Anlin windows and doors are not the cheapest products on the market, nor are they the most expensive. But they are among some of the most high-quality vinyl windows you can buy when it comes to energy efficiency and durability.
