We Love Our Windows!
Replacing our windows was number one on our “to-do” list for nearly 30 years. Finally, when the opportunity came, we did our homework and then chose five companies to show us what they had to offer. To say we were shocked at how much the first two estimates said it was going to cost is this century’s understatement! Their windows were great quality, but Holy Cow!! The third estimate from HomeStar Windows & Doors was a shock as well; it was less than half of the first two. When Dave Orgill showed us the actual window sample from Milgard windows we were pleasantly shocked ! The quality of the Tuscany Series windows was equal to, if not superior, to the previous two samples we examined. Milgard’s lifetime, transferable warranty was a huge, deciding factor. Dave also offers additional warranties that make the decision a no-brainer. We were equally impressed with Dave’s straightforward attitude about doing business. Having owned and run a business ourselves for 24 years, we recognized the tactics used in the other sales pitches and were not impressed. Replacing windows is a huge investment and this opportunity and the available funds would only come around once for us and we HAD to make to right decision. Dave gave us the absolute bottom line about what this would cost, and that helped us tremendously in deciding onMilgard and HomeStar Windows & Doors, and to feel confident that we were doing the right thing.
We were kept informed every step of the way about shipping and delivery. Milgard delivered our windows in good time and in good condition (with the exception of three damaged screens which we are waiting for their replacements-Dave has been working with us on that…). The installers were on time and finished in the amount of time that they said they would-two days. That’s quite a feat when you consider that they installed nineteen windows, including a 10 foot picture window and a sliding French door in a very old house that has definitely “settled” over the years! They were professional and worked hard, even foregoing lunch the first day to stay on schedule. When they finished, late the second day, they left everything neat and tidy, even polishing the new windows before they left.
The difference in our home’s “curb appeal” is amazing! It totally cleaned up the way the way our house looks and definitely adds some sparkle!! I love looking out our new windows-something I haven’t enjoyed doing for years. Even the thought of cleaning these windows doesn’t make me want to run away…I almost look forward to it. And, the fact that I can actually open and close these windows is monumental!! Most of our old windows hadn’t even been opened for the entire time we’ve lived here. These new Milgard Tuscany windows operate smoothly and easily. They have made a huge difference for the good in our everyday lives. We haven’t seen our first monthly heating bill since the installation was completed so we can’t say what the savings will be, but we’re anticipating a big difference.
We cannot recommend highly enough, Dave Orgill and his company, HomeStar Windows & Doors, and Milgard’s Tuscanyseries vinyl windows. Both are premium quality and have delivered what they promised. Dave’s straightforward way of presenting his products, educating his potential customers and giving the absolute final price-including taxes, etc., was much appreciated. It inspired trust and confidence that we had chosen the right person and product for the job.
Thanks for the face-lift!
