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.

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, 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).
Anlin Monte Verde Bay View Prices
Hi - I have a couple Anlin quotes for my condo for the following window dimensions:

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 original windows 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.
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.
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...
Anlin makes a decent product, although the Monte Verde would not be my top choice - look at the Anlin Del Mar and Coronado series 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.
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 the Amsco Studio window with their CozE low-e. The Amsco is about 20% less so I'm leaning towards the Amsco option.
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.
