You may have never heard of Anlin replacement windows until you started researching replacement windows for your San Diego home. But if you’ve read reviews of the various replacement window manufacturers, you probably have noticed that Anlin windows have some pretty great reviews, and not a lot of bad ones.
Most replacement window manufacturers make a similar promise—they say they make durable, energy-efficient windows with a great warranty. Yet, when you look at online reviews, you see that many windows, especially ones that come at a lower price point, can start to break down after only a few short years, and that, for one reason or another, the manufacturer won’t honor their warranty.
The Anlin reviews read a bit differently, however. For example, on Yelp, Anlin has an average rating of five stars. They get high marks for both their quality products and their excellent customer service in the rare event that anything does go wrong with their windows after they are installed. They will honor their warranty, even if the San Diego replacement window company from which you purchased their windows goes out of business.
How does Anlin maintain such a great online reputation? It likely comes from being a relatively small, well-managed, regional company that truly does focus on quality products and great customer service. Their products are designed specifically for homes located in warmer climates like San Diego and are only sold in the western United States. This more narrowly focused approach allows Anlin to keep their prices down, even while producing a high-quality product. Consumers are often surprised at the affordability of Anlin windows, especially given their excellent quality. You can often buy Anlin replacement windows in San Diego at a similar price point as windows of lesser quality.
Not every San Diego replacement window company installs Anlin windows—a company needs to be a certified Anlin dealer in order to sell and install them—and they aren’t sold at the big box stores. But you can easily find an Anlin dealer by doing a simple search on the Anlin website here. On that list, you’ll find my company, BM Windows in San Diego. We’ve been a proud dealer of Anlin windows for many years and have a great deal of respect for the company and their products.
So, to answer the question that we posed in the title of this article: Yes, Anlin windows really are as good as everyone says they are. They have good customer reviews for a reason, and they also come highly recommended by many reputable San Diego replacement window installers. If quality and excellent customer support are high on you priority list, make sure you put Anlin windows on your list of window brands to consider.
