Answers to Common Questions About
Phoenix & Scottsdale Home Windows:
We consider our pricing to be extremely fair and competitive, often lower than the competition. We buy direct from manufacturers at wholesale prices and use employees, not independent contractors. This avoids a middleman.
Also, our prices are never inflated with expensive accidental glass breakage policy warranties on every new window that some companies offer, because most homeowners only find themselves having one or two windows broken while they own the home…. never all of them. And if a natural disaster or event should break every window? It’s usually covered by homeowners insurance. Why pay twice?
When shopping for windows, many people start by researching different types of windows and the features they offer. They may look for information online, read reviews from other homeowners, and compare features and warranties from different manufacturers. They also may talk to friends and family, which can be a great source of information and recommendations. For pricing, visiting a showroom and inviting several window and door companies out to your home is a great way to see product and compare pricing. They can assess your needs, provide recommendations, and help you make an informed decision based on your budget and style preferences.
For most, shopping for windows involves a combination of research, personal preferences, and consultation with experts to ensure you make the best choice for your home.

Most houses in Phoenix have windows screens, and if you’re shopping for new replacement home windows, it might be useful to note that most of them include window screens built right into the price, and installed on the product when it’s delivered. There’s usually no need to buy them separately.
In the Phoenix desert, it’s important to clean your window screens and window glass frequently, as dirt and debris can interfere with the window’s energy efficiency.

Located in the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix and the metro area is in the EnergyStar® Southern Zone, and considered Climate Zone Two, according to the Efficient Windows Collaborative by the NFNC (National Fenestration Rating Council). They have a great online resource to help choose the right window. Based on the age of your home, square footage and your zip code, it shares good/better/best recommendations for replacement windows.
We don’t like that it recommends triple-pane windows for our area, however, since those are best suited to cold climates and noise dampening. It’s a very expensive upgrade to move from double- to triple-pane, and the difference in utility bill savings will take decades to break even. If you use the tool, you’ll notice it’s only a savings of $30-40 per year. If you’re considering triple-pane, be sure to do the math to divide the cost difference by the amount saved to see how many years it will take.
We also don’t care for the products recommended using the tool, since most of them are unavailable in the Phoenix market, and not manufacturers we typically recommend to our clients. It’s missing the higher quality brands, such as Pella, Andersen, Anlin and Milgard, which we’ve asked them to add to the site. If we come to your home to provide a cost estimate for home windows, we’re happy to share energy efficiency information and recommendations for the products you’re considering.

There are pros and cons to each, outlined in this article about where to buy new windows for your home. The short version? DIY saves cost in labor, but requires a certain level of construction skills to do the job right: especially if you run into water or insect damage, or end up needing stucco, siding or drywall repair. You also may find yourself with few options for color and design, and thicker-framed, builder grade product.
When a windows and doors company does the job, they’ll come out to your home; help you decide exactly what product, features and upgrades are best suited to your needs and budget; and give you more options than what you can typically find at a home improvement store.

And as far as a showroom goes? We’ve got one in Phoenix that showcases multiple brands. If you decide to get quotes from a showroom that only sells one brand, however, it might be wise to also get comparable quotes for similar product… just to see how the prices stack up. It never hurts.

Here’s What Our Customers Say…
The installers were efficient and cleaned everything up nicely. Our salesman, Sal, was awesome. He was very accommodating. He answered some questions for me about other windows and doors in my house. He offered my advice on some screen installation. He actually recommended a different type of company to complete the work I wanted done. (just like the movie Miracle on 34th Street). We were not happy with one of the choices we made with the door installation. We thought we would like our choice of framework but did not like the selection once it was up. Even though it was DunRite’s fault, they exchanged the section we were not happy with and did not charge us extra money for their time or the new materials.
I would highly recommend the company.
