any downside to using no name brand?

There are a few vinyl door/window companies I've never heard of here in socal.
like crystal pacific, hometime, etc.

Prices are cheaper than big name.

but of course, I worry about companies coming and going bankrupt.

Any legit concerns with using smaller companies?

Salesmen assured me they pass California specs, whatever they are.

Hometime and crystal pacific both have factories nearby in Socal in upland and riverside.

hometime claims not to use vinyl imported from china,
whereas crystal pacific allegedly uses vinyl from china.

I don't know whether that's a legit concern, and I'm sure we use tons of vinyl products daily that are manufactured in china.
