We talk a lot on this site about Anlin windows and doors, and there’s a good reason for that. They are one of the top manufacturers of replacement windows and doors, and one that we highly recommend to our San Diego customers. Their products are extremely energy efficient even without any upgrades or add-ons, and they are also very durable.
With all of these positive attributes, you would be right to assume that Anlin windows are not the least expensive replacement windows on the market. They are competitively priced for what you get, making them a great value, but if budget is your top concern when it comes to choosing the brand of replacement windows for your San Diego home, you may want to look at some less expensive options.
Bay View and Monte Verde Replacement Windows for San Diego Homes
Bay View and Monte Verde replacement windows are both great options for San Diego homeowners. They offer many of the same great features as Anlin replacement windows, including exceptional energy efficiency. And if you aren’t concerned with all of the “bells and whistles” that are available with Anlin windows, they are a great choice.
With both Bay View and Monte Verde windows you’ll still get a locking system that passes the stringent California Forced Entry resistance test. You’ll also get windows with triple Low-E glass, as well as a frame and sash that are fusion welded, making them air and water tight. Patio doors come standard with tempered glass for safety and oversized rollers that glide along a one-piece stainless steel track.
Bay View windows give you a lot of options, such as multiple exterior frame colors, more window styles to choose from, additional hardware options, and larger patio doors, making them a great option for San Diego homeowners.
On the other hand, Monte Verde offers only a limited number of window styles, hardware options, and frame colors (only white and tan), so if you’re looking for something unique, Monte Verde may not be the brand for you. But if you’re just in the market for a basic replacement window that’s affordable and gets good marks for energy efficiency, they are worth a look.
The Warranty Difference
Anlin replacement windows and doors come with an industry-leading Double Lifetime Warranty. Bay View and Monte Verde come with a Lifetime Warranty. Both warranties will cover you, the original purchaser of the windows, for as long as you own your home. However, with Anlin windows, you can transfer the warranty to a second owner. This can be a great selling feature, but if you have no plans to sell your home, you may not be concerned with a double lifetime warranty.
