Premium Windows Timeless Series
Hello Dane, thanks for all the great information you provide to homeowners trying to make good decisions regarding replacement windows.
I am considering replacing eight windows and one sliding patio door in my San Diego condo. I have received bids for Milgard Style Line and Monte Verde Windows, both is the low $7000 range, and Monte Verde Bayview Windows for an additional $400. I have also received a bid for Premium Timeless Series Windows that is approximately $1,700 lower than Milgard and Monte Verde.
You have mentioned in past articles that you didn't have a lot of information on Premium Windows. Considering the difference in price, I wonder if you have received any additional information concerning the relative quality of Premium Windows (Timeless Series)? Do they compare favorably with Milgard Style Line and Monte Verde?
Given the choices above, which window would you recommend?
Thanks for your help.

Perry, I've looked at the Premium Windows site, at their specs, and at their reviews, but I don't have anymore to go on beyond this. From what I can tell, their windows are probably on par with say the Milgard Style Line series. I would put the Monte Verde Bayview Window above these, but not by a ton. This is their entry level model. So, $5300 for the Premium Windows is probably offering some value, but you are still purchasing a pretty average to mediocre window.
Normally, I might caution against this, but San Diego's climate is pretty mild compared to most climates across the nation. Also, if you don't know how long you will stay in your condo, you might want to consider the less expensive option. If you plan to keep the condo long term, I would probably spend the extra money and go with the Monte Verde option.

Premium Window Update
Hi Dane, I called back the two companies that presented me with Anlin and asked if they could go back and sharpen their pencils. I think my final purchase will be between the two companies. Sivan was pushing Milgard and Premium.
I was told that Premium Windows was started by the old CFO of Milgard, but it is a lower end product. (My neighbor just put into a house that he rents).
I'll let you know what happens!

Premium Windows vs Anlin Windows
Hi Tim, I am a homeowner in Bakersfield, CA that is replacing the original 1946 wooden frame single pane windows on our recently purchased home. We have received three bids from two contractors:
Contractor A: 19 Anlin Del Mar windows for $17,172
Contractor A: 19 Anlin Monte Verde windows for $11,525
Contractor B: 17 Premium Windows for $6,036 (www.premiumwindowsinc.com)
Contractor B does not seem like they would do a good job since they got the number of windows wrong on the bid (we asked for 19) and have generally had poor communication with us. So we want to stay away from them and we have not seen any reviews for Premium Windows.
Anlin Windows get very good reviews, but the $17k price point for the Del Mar windows seems excessively high versus the Monte Verde. Two questions:
1) Are the Del Mar windows that much better that they would warrant $6k higher price?
2) Is the quote for either the Del Mar or Monte Verde in the range of normal?

Curran, the Del Mar is the better window, but I don't think it's worth the $6K more. I like Anlin windows but that price seems quite high for 19 windows.
I agree that you don't want to go with a contractor who you are having reservations about BEFORE the job. I actually think the Monte Verde is a decent vinyl window and the upgraded Bay View option in this model is good.
I checked the premiumwindowsinc website and they look like cheap vinyl windows -- I wouldn't be surprised if they were relabeled Atrium windows. However, I don't know this for a fact so I will try and collect some additional consumer reviews to get a better judge on this company.
I think you need to either find the floor of Contractor A's bid by using the Monte Verde bid to drive his price down.
I think you should get a bid from a local Milgard dealer and a local Amerimax dealer and see what they offer. I think this would bring some clarity to this huge range of bids you have so far.
