Hello: We are about to sign up for 18 Anlin windows, and it is costing us a pretty penny. Can you please let me know if this brand is of good quality? I would love any feedback. They are vinal (sp?). Also, they are taking out old alum. ones--collapsing the frame and putting these in. Is this good/bad? They said they would replace any minor dry rot and re-do the walls/siding as well. Not sure what other questions I should ask them? Thanks for any help!

Check the spelling of the manufacturer.
Never heard of Anlin.

Anlin Windows are a major manufacturer of vinyl replacement windows. They were the manufacturer in California(and the west coast I believe) for Certainteed Windows for many years.

They are a high quality window with a very fair price.

Go to to see more about them. You can email them for a distributor in your area.

Better Quality Homes also sells their windows and has the website

I work for a coating contractor in San Diego and see many homes that have windows put in and often the quality is not the greatest. Anlin installations have always been good.

I worked for Anlins largest dealer as GM for 10 years. The company I worked for sold and installed 2000+ Anlin windows a month and you can't go wrong with their product or customer service if needed.

I had four installed in 2011. Recently I found that one had lost it's insulation. Gas leaked out I imagine. I called the retailer, Pacific Coast Home Solutions, who sold Anlin to report this. One month later, no response. So I called Anlin direct and found that PCH had not reported the malfunction. Still don't know if anyone will honor the "lifetime'warranty.

I think that Anlin windows may be good, but the installation quality will depend on the retailer who sells them to you.

I don't find comments from installers or related businesses helpful at all. Their vested interest makes them an unreliable source of facts.
