Vinyl Windows Available in California, Using Simonton ?

Posted by linda21 (My Page) on

We are replacing 9 windows and 5 eight foot sliding doors, along with all the siding in our 1970s Bay Area home. Our contractor wants to use "New Construction windows"

Other than Milgard and Simonton, which brands are available in California? Any that you would recommend. I like the look and feel of the Simonton over the Milgard.

However, Simonton only sells "replacement" windows in the west, so we would have to use the 7300 Daylight Max model and add a nailing fin flange. Will that be strange?

I attached a picture of our house. We are replacing all the beautiful "amber" glass windows and are going to put in casements that are the same width, but only 24" tall, versus the 6 feet they are now on those windows in the front (they are bathroom windows)

Thanks for any other options/ideas.

I'm not very familiar with all the brands available in the west but I have heard Anlin and Amerimax make decent windows.

I've worked with Amerimax windows a lot, and I think Simonton is a much better window.

We used Simonton in two different homes and loved them. They have a warranty which came in very handy when my son "accidently" threw a rock at our slider. The house we still own has had Simonton windows for 15 years without any problems.
