American Visions Mar Vista Window
Hi Tim. Thanks for your website, its been very helpful. I had a question regarding two quotes I got for replacing all windows in my home.

Marc, you are correct that Mar Vista is the Anlin window that American Vision sells. My understanding is that it is essentially a relabeled Del Mar window, which is a decent enough vinyl window. I would say that it's a bit better than the Milgard Tuscany, but not by much. I think I would probably go with the Tuscany for $1.5K less myself, unless American Vision can provide you with the specific performance data of the Mar Vista, including DP, air infiltration, U-value, and SHGC. I would be interested to see those numbers and then I could probably make a better apples-to-apples comparison.
American Vision Windows Quote
I am using American Vision Windows to replace a sliding glass door in my kitchen. On your site I saw all kinds Anlin windows discussed but saw no reference to Anlin "Malibu " style . Can you tell me about that style. Also paying $2284 for a 79 by 70 slider. Is that fair? Thanks.

Susan, the Anlin Malibu patio slider is a good product. As is often the case, the quality of a company's vinyl windows is commiserate with the quality of their patio doors. This isn't always the case, for instance, Jeld Wen makes an excellent vinyl door, but only mediocre vinyl windows. Anlin makes a good quality vinyl window and good quality patio door. For the product details, just google Anlin Malibu Patio Door and click on their link. It lists the configuration, hardware options, rail styles, frame and color options, glass packages, performance data, etc. The rep from American Vision Windows should have a nice glossy brochure on the Malibu door to give you at the very least.

Keith, I would agree that that bid sounds very high. In the window industry, the companies can bid your project out any way they see fit. Get more bids. Try Simonton (Impressions and Reflections Series), Amerimax, Milgard - all of these companies will have reps in your area. Let each company know you are taking 3 to 4 bids and are going with the most competitive bid and best company - tell them to give you their most competitive bid.
American Vision Windows Reviews
I knew I wanted Anlin windows, but I was having trouble finding an installer. The first person I turned to gave me a ridiculous price, so I called Anlin and asked what installer they recommend. They told me to call American Vision, and the quote I got when I called them was less than half of what the first guy wanted. The installation was fast and easy. They installed them the day they were delivered. The only problem I had was that they forgot the deadbolts I'd asked for, and I had to call a 2nd time to get them to come put them in. When they did come out, they were really nice and apologetic about it so I wasn't mad. I think they also install Milgard windows, but I know that they did a good job on my Anlins.

Silding Glass Doors Installed
In the summer of 2008 we had Anlin sliding glass doors put in by American Vision. The doors are awesome and they did a great job putting them in. I'm planning on doing the rest of the hosue soon. They look good and keep the heat out. When I had a minor problem with the latch, they sent me a replacement part right away, and said they'd come fix it if I couldn't. The doors and the service are both great and I recommend them to anyone.
American Vision Windows Complaints
I had a ton of problems with American Vision and I don't think anyone should deal with them ever. They are unprofessional and they don't keep promises and they are expensive and slow. I ordered my windows 4 weeks ago and I paid with a credit card up front, my first mistake. The sales guy said 2-3 weeks and they would all be here and installed. Week 3 came, and we got a call saying that they can't do the bay windows we wanted, but can do garden windows instead. I agreed, they said the windows would all be here by the end of the week and be installed in week 4. I was annoyed but ok. Then I never heard from them and nothing came so I called at the end of week 4 and they said they can't send a crew because they don't have any of my windows. They said they'd call me in two weeks! They aren't even picking up the phone when I call them now!

Installation Just OK
Not long ago I had American Vision put in Anlins - 17 windows and 2 sliding doors. The windows are great, and the installation went ok at first, but we had a few problems. They could have just been minor annoyances, but it's been 10 weeks now and we still can't get them to even come fix it. It was over 5 weeks before they'd come look, and then all they said was they'd have to schedule another appointment to come fix them. As much money as I spent on those people, they couldn't get the stupid things fixed. I like the windows, but I'd go with a different installer.
We just had American Vision put in our new Anlin windows. I see that some people are complaining about the cost, but they were much less expensive than some companies, and they did an amazing job. I would recommend them to anyone, they were very nice and did a great job.
I wanted Anlin windows, and the people at Anlin suggested American Vision. They had competitive pricing, and the install and service were great. I would definitely use them again.
