Dave Orgill is an innovator and entrepreneur by nature with a 40-year history of owning his own businesses dating back to his teen years. In 1985, Dave started his first remodel business specializing in attic insulation which
later expanded to include roofing. This successful venture grew into one of the largest roofing companies in California, with over 100 employees, completing over 5,000 new roofs. Dave eventually expanded his services to include windows, doors, flooring, kitchen remodeling, shutters, painting and siding.
By 2001, Dave had found his passion in the window and door aspect of his remodel business. He consolidated all operations to specialize in the window and door industry. Dave established a successful window replacement company called Homefront Windows with two beautiful retail showrooms in Orange County installing thousands of windows. In 2007, Dave sold that business to relocate his family to Utah to be closer to aging parents, adult children and grandchildren living in the area.
HomeStar Windows & Doors was established in 2009. The company is fully licensed and insured in the State of Utah. HomeStar has built a beautiful 4,000 square-foot showroom in Sandy showcasing their products and workmanship. The displays are designed to show not only the different products and manufacturers but also the various methods of installation into stucco, siding and brick exteriors. The entry door displays are particularly unique showcasing Amish craftsman built ProVia doors, Therma-Tru fiberglass doors and Milgard French and sliding doors. There are 18 fully operational doors on display where customers can see the various styles, finishes, glass choices and hardware. Using our designer software, customers are impressed that they can leave the showroom with a custom entry door quote designed for them in their own selected colors, styles and glass choices.
Dave believes that one of the most important keys to a successful remodel business is “doing what you say you are going to do when you say you are going to do it.” He knows it takes quality people with total integrity to accomplish this. In order to recruit and retain the best talent in the state, HomeStar provides exceptional employee benefits compared to most construction companies in the area. The company uses no subcontractors (except for stucco work). The company provides career opportunities for those interested in learning a trade. No other window and door company in Utah provides a formal apprentice training and graduation program anywhere close to what HomeStar offers to its installers. Achieving the level of Crew Chief is equivalent to receiving a college degree at HomeStar.
Dave is confident that customers will notice an immediate difference in the way they are treated by his team at HomeStar. Our nopressure, high education sales approach is refreshing and appreciated. People are impressed by the smooth and orderly manner in which jobs are processed, scheduled and completed. When mistakes occur, HomeStar employees bend over backwards to resolve them quickly and make it right. Customer reviews on Google, KSL, Angie’s list and Yelp paint a clear picture of how committed HomeStar employees are to achieving complete customer satisfaction.
HomeStar is the largest dealer for Milgard Windows in Utah, and the largest retrofit dealer for ProVia and Therma-Tru doors in Utah completing over a thousand projects a year. Dave believes that growth is good, but always secondary to the quality of the work, customer satisfaction, and the reputation of the company.
Dave lives in Stansbury Park with his wife Sandi who is also involved with the business. Though Sandi has been busy raising 8 children and helping with 14 grandchildren, she provides valuable input on all major decisions. She is the proof reader and editor of all advertising, paperwork and documents. Dave and Sandi enjoy hiking, kayaking, ATV riding, pickleball, and shooting hoops with their grandchildren. Dave and Sandi truly enjoy the challenge and adventure of owning their own business, but most of all, the rewards of lifelong relationships with loyal employees and customers.
