West Coast Manufacturers

Milgard, Anlin, Atrium and Magic. I would rank the top four window companies on the West Coast in that order. There are several people who would rate Anlin higher than Milgard, but I don't simply because Milgard has a more developed, bigger company. Nowadays, it's hard to say whether or not a small company will survive, and you don't want to go with a company that will be gone in a few years and unable to help with warranties or other issues.

Overall Impression Of Magic Windows

What do you you think of Magic Windows? My neighbors have them and one thing I noticed is that they are hard to open and shut. The weatherstripping seems too thick, but perhaps that's because they are energy efficient? I have no idea. I want a good window that will last and have good functionality. I'm also looking at Simonton windows. Thanks in advance for any advice.

[Contractor Response]

I worked for a company that sold quite a few of their windows and this is my overall impression of Magic Window Innovations -- good window but not great -- this is assuming a good install. We would get quite a few service calls on them because they have to be put in differently than other replacement windows. They use what they call Parallex hardware, which I felt had some issue. Well made, but functinonality wise it left something to be desired, especially the how the screens worked. I work in Minnesota so energy efficiency is important and I would say there are better options out there for the money. I think Simonton makes a better window, especially their Gold and Platinum Prism models. They have better points of contact, corner welds and extrusion thickness. The Simonton also uses a sloped sill instead of the pocket sill and a better warranty. For the price, I think Simonton is a good value.
