Read 2 Win-Dor Windows review from homeowners and contractors on these vinyl window series.
Win-Dor Windows vs Simonton
I was hoping you are able to offer what you know about these:
1 . Win-Dor Windows (and Doors) - made by Win-Dor company themselves. Their main office as well as factory where they manufacture their own windows are located in Anaheim, California. They seem to be a trustworthy company, but very limited window style selection (ie they discontinued their double hung windows due to lack of supply demand) .
2 . Anlin Extreme - I'm not sure if this is a relabel of one of Anlin's series, or a new series, but was not on your list.
3 . Simonton Vantage Pointe 6500 - Home Depot offers this . Do you know which Simonton series the 6500 is equivalent to?
I think I'd like to interview a couple more companies before I decide, but right now I'm trying to decide between Anlin Extreme/ Amerimax Craftsman (same installer) or Win-Dor. Any thoughts?
Also, going into this I was expecting Low-e2 to be the standard, but seems Low-e3 is what I've been presented with, although one of the companies tried telling me that their Low-e3 is normally an "upgrade" but they are currently "offering" Low-e3 for the price of their Low-e2 (even though they are phasing out the Low-e2 meaning I couldn't even buy it if I wanted to LOL). I caught on right away that it was a sales tactic from doing much research and familiarizing myself with terms and such.

Are you in Hawaii? I've never seen this Anlin model but it looks to be available for Hawaii only…Simonton tends to be very cryptic in their model names - if you find a distributor who serves your area they should be able to tell you the comparable model. Often times, Simonton relabels their windows and then provides them to certain distributors or resellers to create the idea of exclusivity.
The Anlin looks like the best of the bunch, depending on what price you can get. Amerimax is a good vinyl window as well -- they are both really on par with one another -- Amerimax does have lots of exterior color options for their vinyl windows, although it adds a lot to the cost of the window (up to 30% in some cases!)
Honestly, I know very little about Win-Dor, but I will check them out this week and see what I can find. Let me know how the bids come in against one another!
