Window replacements can be a sizable investment, so how often should you replace the windows in your home? What kind of lifespan can you expect? Do you need to replace them all at once? Owner of one of the oldest family-owned window and door companies in the Valley, Sal Sucato of DunRite Windows & Doors explores the topic.
While our long, hot summers have some homeowners wondering if vinyl windows are a smart choice for Arizona homes, they’re one of the most popular choices that we install at DunRite Windows & Doors – a Rosie-Certified Partner.
If you’re a homeowner thinking about patio options to open up back of the house, and looking to invest in something more expansive than French doors or sliders, there’s a growing trend that just might be the perfect solution: glass pivot doors.
It’s not uncommon for some windows to have a green tint to the glass, with homeowners asking about the color after installation. Is it a defect? A film or coating? We approached several manufacturers to ask why.
When you’re debating which brand of replacement window to purchase, or wondering if you should step up in budget, evaluating the warranties between different products can be a smart way to decide… especially if it’s your retirement home or a residence you intend to keep long-term.
What is a double glazed window?
Often mistaken for window films, tints and coatings, window glazing simply refers to the pane(s) of glass installed in a window frame (or wall opening).
It’s not a treatment done to the glass, it’s the glass itself.
Which is a better front door choice for Arizona homes?
If it’s time to replace the front door of your home and you’re debating whether to choose a fiberglass vs. steel door, a steel door may be the most affordable choice—but fiberglass doors tend to be far more popular. It’s also the material we recommend most to homeowners with a budget of $4,000 or less. (For bigger budgets, we tend to recommend aluminum-clad wood doors.)
Let’s talk about why.
Are you a fan of Pella® Windows & Doors? One of the most common questions asked about this brand is specific to DIYers: Does Home Depot sell Pella? Let’s tackle it.
Home Depot does not sell Pella windows—they sell the Andersen® windows brand, a competitor in the high-end windows niche. However, you can find Pella products at Lowe’s.
