Window Comments

Allbrand Windows is owned by Yasek(sp?) Pasternak, who also owns Polybau and Prima Products, Polybau's parent company. As of 8/8/08, Allbrand's California state contractor's license number is suspended for two reasons. Just today, I witnessed a salesman at the Fountain valley Allbrand office sell windows to a consumer despite the fact their license is suspended. Essentially, an illegal transaction. Caveat Emptor.

Love the look of the sliders I bought. The door feels like it is sliding on air. I put 5 for the warranty, but I haven't had to use it. In theory, it is Fantastic....

Installed by ALLBRANDS of CA

I have seen mixed reviews of Allbrands as far as sales and installation issues, so I was a bit nervous at first. I think issues must be an office location thing. The team that installed my patio sliders did a great job. Square work, cleaned up after, did a great job with the interior molding. I am very happy with the outcome.

These are the best Five Star windows in the State of California. Only Great Lakes of Colorado can compete in terms of Style, Flair, and over all energy effiency. I am so pleased with my new Polybau windows "Belmont series" with that said...they are the originator's of the vinyl window product since 1952.
