Just about every homeowner knows the importance of reading reviews of local home improvement companies before signing a contract with one. This is an especially important step when you’re looking to do a project that will set you back thousands of dollars. You want to make the right choice in the company you choose, as well as in the products that are used in the project. When it comes to replacing the windows in your San Diego home, both of these considerations are extremely important. Reading reviews can help you make the right choice, but you have to know what to look for!
Choose the Right Replacement Window Products for Your San Diego Home
There are so many brands of replacement windows on the market, and then there’s the fact that many of the major brands have several lines of windows with various features and varying levels of quality and performance. Your research into replacement window products can get overwhelming very quickly!
At BM Windows, we’ve done a lot of the research for you! We’ve carefully selected some of the best brands of replacement windows to sell based on our many years of experience in the industry. We’ve seen how the various brands of windows hold up over time and how they perform in real-life homes. We’ve worked with various manufacturers on warranty issues and know which ones stand behind their products and which ones don’t.
One of the replacement window brands that we’ve been confidently recommending for many years is Anlin. Anlin is not the biggest or most well-known brand out there, but they are truly one of the best. They make quality products that are still affordable for most San Diego homeowners. They are very energy efficient and come with an industry-leading warranty.
What to Look for in Replacement Window Product Reviews
You’ll find many positive reviews of Anlin products online. As you look through them (and the reviews of other replacement window products), look for reviews from homeowners who have lived with their windows for a while (preferably a few years) and see what they say about how they are holding up and the energy savings they’ve noticed. You’ll also want to take note of what homeowners say about how the manufacturer handles warranty claims. Some manufacturers other than Anlin are notorious for finding ways to not honor their warranties. We have found that Anlin truly stands behind their products.
Here are a few reviews of Anlin replacement windows from homeowners who have actually had them installed in their homes:
I recently had new Anlin window replacements put into my house. 13 windows in total and 2 sliding glass doors. The windows are a perfect fit and have greatly improved the aesthetics of my house. The windows and doors have been amazing and more importantly have improved the house’s overall temperature along with the sound proofing of the house. The value of the windows have been worth every penny.”
– Michael G.
We’ve had Anlin windows and doors for almost 20 years now. They are as good as they were when new. They insulate well and cut down on the noise from the street. The house looks really good with them. Great windows.”
– Jabo J.
We have had our Anlin windows for a number of years now. We love, love, love them! So well made. They still slide easily. They keep us cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. We live near a hospital and we don’t hear the sirens at all. We don’t hear the neighbor’s dogs. They are just great windows. One of the best investments in our home that we have ever made.”

Choose the Right San Diego Replacement Window Company
It’s important to choose the right brand of replacement windows, but it’s equally important to choose the right company to install them.
We should start out by saying that very few companies in San Diego sell and install Anlin windows. This is because Anlin (the manufacturer of the windows and doors) only allows a select number of companies to sell and install their products. They want to make sure that their quality products are properly and expertly installed. Why? Because the installation greatly impacts the performance of the windows and doors.
To become an authorized Anlin dealer, BM Windows had to go through an extensive process that included factory training for our installers. This is on top of the training our own company provides for anyone we hire to do installation work. As a result, our installers are experienced in the best methods for installing replacement windows, which ensures that the windows are as energy efficient as possible.
Having a highly trained installation team also means that if you ever have an issue with one of your windows that requires making a warranty claim, the issue will almost certainly be covered by the manufacturer. If, on the other hand, your windows were improperly installed, your warranty may be void, and you could have to pay out of pocket to get your window replaced or repaired. If there is a situation where a window needs to be repaired or replaced because of a (rare) mistake made by one of our installers, our own installation warranty kicks in to cover the cost.

Here’s what a few of our past customers have had to say about working with BM Windows for their new windows and doors:
We are highly impressed with the staff of BM Windows from Doreen (Office manager), J.T. (sales), Michal (owner), Carlos and Mario (installation). They complemented one another from beginning to end with their timeliness, professionalism, efficiency and cleanliness. Their quality Anlin windows are better than anticipated and worth every cent. Our home is much quieter from the outside noises during the day, and stays warm from the chill at night. If we ever sell our home and need more windows – we will not look far, and select BM Windows every time.”
– Kay M.
From the first call for a quote appointment to the end of the project, the people from BM Windows have exceeded our expectations. Quote appointment was done as scheduled and we were contacted prior to Jim’s arrival. An install date was chosen and the installers (2 crews) showed up as scheduled. They completed the job beyond our expectations, neat, clean, polite, friendly and experienced. GREAT GUYS! 19 windows and 1 slider. Ultimately this experience was less painful than the quote we received five years prior and $10K less. We have recommended BM Windows to friends/family and highly suggest that you give this company a call before you sign with anybody else. Anlin windows are without a doubt the best replacement windows out there.”
– Gary M.
We were so impressed with this Company from start to finish! We received 4 different quotes from other companies to narrow down our search. BM windows quote was comparable to the other companies and also offered upgrades that the other companies did not. We decided to go with the Panoramic Anlin window due to the quality. The installers showed up on time and were all so friendly and professional. They completed the install of 23 windows in 8 hours which is truly amazing! We were so impressed by the care they took before they started the install. They put down drop cloths on our stairs and covered anything that may get dust on it before they began. After the install they vacuumed around and under the windows and swept up anything that may have had dust on it. I could not believe how clean they left our house when the install was done. Another thing I have to praise is the caulking on the outside and inside of the windows. I have never seen such a perfect job on each and every window, no part of this job was sloppy. The attention to detail the crew took was amazing! It was absolutely perfect which made the windows even more attractive. The entire process was just the best experience and if you are looking for a company you can rely on, impeccable customer service, reliable, skilled, detailed oriented workers, and the best job then look no more. BM Windows is the best!”
