Monte Verde Window vs. Lyndsey Comfort Series

Hi Dane, I sent this through the general box but thought to send here. I'm looking at an agreement to do a retrofit 5 window (3 bedroom/2 kitchen). The price from Brother Home Improvement is $3,500 with the Lyndsey Comfort series windows. I also have a quote from Custom Exchange Windows for $3,220 for the Monte Verde Window.

Brother has been out to the house to measure and Custom Exchange has not.

Kitchen 46 x 37
Kitchen 54 x 49
Master Bed 54 x 49
Bed 1 72 x 49
Bed 2 70 x 49

I'm wondering if these are comparable offers. Also on a retrofit is it expected that repair work (paint, trim etc...) will be needed? I did talk to Brothers and they said no repair work would be needed. I was concerned these side shutters would be damaged but they said they would not be damaged during install.

Thanks for any thoughts you have.

Chris, I'm not really sure which window Brother Home Improvements sells -- I believe they sell their own line, but I don't know much about the quality. They certainly get solid reviews, so I'm assuming the window is a solid mid range option. But so too do Custom Exchange Windows (review/reputation). I like the Monte Verde Window quite a bit and seeing as how it is less expensive than the BHI, my initial advice would be to go with the CEW. Other options to consider if you want to expand your bids would include a Milgard Trinsic, an Amerimax Craftsman Portrait, and a Simonton Reflections 5500 series. All of these window brands should have dealers in your area.

Monte Verde Bay View Cost

Hi Dane: I got another quote for monte Verde vs Bayview series. There is a $1000 price difference between the two.

I compared the specs from both products and it looked pretty identical from an energy efficiency stand point. Key difference seems to be the glass breakage warranty and some minor cosmetic improvements in the finish. Is it worth the $1000 difference to pay for Bayview ?

Could you please provide your recommendation between monte verde and Bayview ?


Manny - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Manny, my understanding is the Bayview is just the wider viewing area option for the Monte Verde series. They are more or less the same window with, as you said, some minor differences. I think it's only worth it if you like the Bayview that much better. Otherwise, I'd go for the Monte Verde and save yourself the thousand bucks!

Monte Verde Bay View Option

The Monte Verde comes with bay view what the difference between the without ones with out bayview? so if trying to cut noise would you get the sound package instead of the triple pain glass I am a little confused does the bayview version in soundpackage have triple pain glass

Teresa - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Teresa, the Monte Verde Bay View differs from the standard model with several upgrades - an improved Pro-Latch lock, a little more narrow of a frame, and better energy efficiency numbers. As well, the Bay View option includes moreexterior frame color options. Consumers can expect the Bay View to run 10% to 25% (the upgraded frame color will push this to the upper prcice difference).

In terms of the sound package, I actually don't know the specifics on this. I typically don't recommend triple pane very often, I feel like its a bit overkill, unless it's the only way to get the noise reduction that you need. A good double pane glass with different glass thicknesses between the two panes should do quite a bit in terms of noise reduction. I would suggest asking the salesperson these specific answers as to the soundproofing qualities of the Monte Verde. I like the bay view option, it's pretty darn nice.

Anlin Monte Verde Bay View Prices

Hi - I have a couple Anlin quotes for my condo for the following window dimensions:

Two XOX windows - 79x46 . One of these is in the bedroom is in thirds for egress.

One XO sliding patio door 95x80.

All are retrofit over aluminum. This is a condo in an HOA. For the Anlin Monte Verde Bay View they are saying $4200. For the Del Mar/Malibu I am getting $4500. Is this a fair price? Thanks.

Ryan - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Ryan, I'd ask for the breakdown on that bid. The patio door is where most of that cost is going to be, seems a bit high to me. I'd think the sliders would be in the $700 to $800 each, not quite sure how much the egress requirements are adding to the bid. I'd go with the Del Mar/Malibu option for such a small different in price. If it were me, I'd get two more bids from other manufacturers. Try Simonton, Milgard and Amerimax distirbutors in your area and see how the bids come in.

Monte Verde Window Review

I live in the Los Angeles area and have owned my home going on 3 years now. The originals are from the mid 70s and they desperately need to be replaced with something more energy efficient. One of the guys from [omitted] told me I would have to pull the permits, but that I could just tell them I did without bothering to actually do it. The home is a ranch style with 3 bedrooms and I want something that is not crazy expensive, but that will help with the resell value and keep the home warmer in the winter.

So far, I have bids for the 1 sliding door and 9 windows. Any and all comments are much appreciated!

Home Depot 6200 VantagePointe: $9,550
CV500 from Home Depot: $8,900
Better Bilt From Lowes: $5,300
Anlin Monte Verde: $5,650

Here is my take on what you've got. The first three bids are all from the big box stores that typically subcontract out the installation and pay the installer pretty poor rates. I'll let you decide how this affects the quality of the installation. A decent window that has subpar installation will be roughly the same as buying the very worst window in terms of your home's energy efficiency.

Any company or person who tells you to lie about pulling permits would immediately raise red flags for me. If they are cutting corners at this point, there is a good chance they will be cutting corners in other places. I don't like this.

The price of the top two bids are so much higher that the bottom two, something is wrong there. The quote for the Monte Verde is darn good and the best of the bunch. The Monte Verde is the low end window from Anlin, but it gets decent numbers with the triple window option (which is unnecessary in Southern California, but the company lists this on their site, obviously to make the numbers more favorable). If the installer gets good reviews, then you should definitely consider this.

What I'd suggest is getting two or three more bids from local dealers from Milgard, Amerimax and maybe from Simonton and see how these compare with the Monte Verde option. These four bids should get you a nice cross section to compare and contrast.

Monte Verde vs Simonton

We've been getting lots of bids and my brain is about to explode! So far, we have our top five options - the prices are all within a few hundred dollars of one another, so we figure this is a fair price point. I would love to hear what people think of the following options...

Simonton Verona
Anlin Monte Verde
Migard StyleLine Windows
Ply Gem Premium Series
Alside Fairfield 70

Brian - Consumer - from 2013

[Contractor Response]

Anlin makes a decent product, although the Monte Verde would not be my top choice - look at the Anlin Del Mar series or the Coronado instead. Simonton makes a decent window as well, I'm actually not familiar with the Verona, but Simonton is pretty good at slapping a label on their windows when it's a very subtle change from one of their more established models. The Simontons become very solid windows with the sash reinforcement and glass upgrade. I'm not a fan of the Alside and the Ply Gem Premium series is a solid offering too. The StyleLine from Milgard is okay, but I would pay the 10% more to upgrade to the Tuscany model, which is a better window. Holland - Contractor - from 2013

Anlin Monte Verde Windows

Does anyone have an opinon on the Anlin Monte Verde patio doors and windows? The contact information on the website is a P.O. box, is this normal? It seems like its an Anlin product, but I can't tell exactly.

Susan - Consumer - from 2012

[Contractor Response]

Yes, Anlin manufactures the Monte Verde Windows. They sell them through a a separate series of distributors and it's marketed as a cheaper option than the windows on the Anlin site. It's not a bad window, but certainly not one of the better vinyl windows out there. The company does the same thing for another window that they only sell in Hawaii, I'm not sure why they do it. If you find a good installer, you will probably be fine with the windows, but again they aren't going to be world beaters by any means.

Monte Verde Windows vs Amsco

I have a bid on MV with a triple pane and argon fills, as well as Amsco Studio windows with their CozE low-e. The Amsco is about 20% less so I'm leaning towards the Amsco option.

Cory - Consumer - from 2011

[Contractor Response]

The Amsco Studio is probably going to be slightly lower in quality than the Monte Verde, but not by much. The biggest difference between these two is in the window warranty. Amsco doesn't offer a warranty as such and this is how they are able to undercut their competitors. They rely on the dealers or installers to provide the customer with an installation warranty. I don't like this approach because if something does go wrong with the windows after 5 years, the installer's warranty will be gone and the consumer is out of luck. The Monte Verde warranty is pretty decent (Anlin makes the window) and I would say it's worth the additional 20% to make sure that the windows you buy today are going to be protected for the next 20 years.
