Explore Dabella Windows reviews from consumers and industry experts alike.

Company Information:: This home improvement company is most heavily concentrated in the Pacific Northwest. DaBella tackles a number of different jobs, including bathroom remodels, gutters, roofs, siding, and windows. They sell mostly Alside windows, including the Preservation, Glasswing, Fairfield, and the Mezzo. This is a bit of a hiccup for me as I consider Alside to be a middling brand. The Preservation series, however, is a pretty nice window and one that I could get behind given professional installation.

Locations: Dabella has over 20 branch locations throughout the western half and mid west of the United States - always in well populated cities and urban centers. These include branches in the state of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, Nevada, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Texas, Oregon, Idaho, Oklahoma, Washington, Utah, and Wyoming.

Dabella Windows Reviews: We've aggregated ratings from many popular window review sites. The company is all over the map on their reviews, but our aggregation puts them at a 3.8 out of 5 stars.

Dabella gets a 4.0 out of 5 stars based on 11 consumer reviews below.

Dabella Fairfield 80 Quality

Hey there fellas, I was wondering what you thought of the Alside Fairfield series. We received a quote from DaBella home improvements and this is the window that they offer. I couldn’t find a ton of reviews out there. Love the site.

Richard - Homeowner - from 2024

[Site Editor's Answer]

Richard, I would say that the Alside Fairfield is a middling vinyl window in general. It is certainly not one of the worst vinyl windows, but you could do a lot better. I think for me, it would depend on the replacement window cost and the online reviews of the develop that operates in your metro area. I would certainly suggest getting a few more bids to see what’s out there, but certainly keep the development to compare and contrast with the other quotes you receive. I am more than happy to look at your quotes and give you a fair assessment of what you have.

DaBella vs Anlin

So I ended up signing the contract for 6 XO sliders and 1 patio door -- came out to $8,374 because I removed the 1st Guard sound proof from the Anlin Malibu patio door because it's laminated glass, and laminated glass is not covered under Anlin's accidental glass breakage. I'm very happy with where I landed, especially since I almost paid close to $16K to get Alside 70 Fairfield windows and a patio door from some company called DaBella, and their financing was a 8% rate for two years.

Dabella Reviews 2023

Hey there, trying to figure out whether Dabella windows are worth the price. We just had a guy here who spent a good two hours in my home trying to pitch us on some winglass window. I actually think I got this wrong, but it’s something like that. Is this a quality product? The company gets pretty good reviews but then they’re also some pretty darn poor reviews. Trying to figure out what the best approach to the situation is. I’d love to get some advice. Thank you so much.

Chance - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Chance, while I don’t love the windows that DaBella sells, they do tend to get decent reviews from most consumer review sites. I would certainly grab some additional bids in order to compare the price and quality before you pull the trigger. I think that there are better windows out there and I’m happy to send you my recommended list. Take a look at it, get some bids, or you can use our form to find some nice local bids. Once you collect four let’s circle back and reevaluate once we have a good spectrum of prices and companies to compare.

Dabella Windows Reviews

Hey Dane. Been using your site a ton as we look to replace all the builder grade windows in our ~15 year old house (a hail storm driving part of this, better energy efficiency and function the other driver). It's been a lot of work but worth it for the investment although somewhat annoying with the sales tactics of some. Here's a summary of the project and the quotes. Curious, based on your experience, what you think on our final 3 and whether or not we crossed off one we should not have.

We are quoting 3 single horizontal sliders, 1 triple slider, 7 single hung, 9 pictures

20 Total @ 1940 UI

1 sliding patio door @ 168 UI

Company 1 was Dabella who sold an Alside window promoted under the Glasswing name. Quote was $53K and they had all their special pricing if you signed up that day which they knew up front wasn't going to happen. 50 year warranty (I didn't get anything other than that).

Another Alside product promoted under the Fairfield name. Quote started at $44k but the high pressure pitch had the final number at $34K but it too didn't matter since I still had quotes to get.

Company 2 was for Andersen 100 series and the quote there was $42K but at that price thought we could get a better window than Andersen's lowest level.

PowerHRG was for a Pella product branded under the Symphony name. Somehow they missed one of the single hung windows in their quote but not sure it really matters. Started at close to $40K but had we signed that day and agreed to before/after pictures it was $33K. I was actually somewhat surprised for a Pella product. Power HRG Reviews

That left us with another 3 we felt gave us the best options and feel for install etc.

Company 4 is Apex. From my research (a lot of help from your site!!) it appears to be an Alside product but a pretty good one at that. Quote was $27K. Their warranty is actually one of the better one's that is transferrable once although it is prorated to 30 years max but it does include glass. It is a triple pane config.

Company 5 is Reflections who quoted us Anlin Catalina (door is Malibu) at $30K. No real glass upgrade outside their Infinit-e standard glass except tempered where needed just like the other quotes. Their warranty is legit and better than anything else we looked at.

Company 6 is Zen who quoted 2 products:

Soft-lite Classic at $24K. So-so warranty that doesn't include glass coverage (it can be had..not sure how much) but it is transferable for $250 which isn't much. A few other exclusions in the warranty makes me a little leery even though your site has them well respected.

Provia Endure at $25.5K which is a triple pane option which is their best glass package in the line. The one downside seems to be the non-transferable warranty, at least in our opinion. ProVia Windows Reviews

The wife was getting somewhat annoyed at the traffic from the sales guys so the Zen approach to quoting was refreshing (they were 2nd to last to be engaged with). I think with the 3 have settled on the quotes are close enough to be comparable with Anlin being the highest. Not sure that double-double warranty is worth another $3K over Apex where I get more warranty than we know what to do with and will likely pass a large part of that to the next owner. Apex is a touch more than Soft-lite and Provia and in that case maybe worth it for the better warranty.

Thanks in advance and for having such an informative site for us to use!

Scott - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, you have certainly done your due diligence here. Of the six options, I would rate the ProVia Endure as the best option at the best price. I would say the fact that the warranty is non transferable is unfortunate, but it has no real effect on you. The buyer of your home will likely never ask about the windows or when they were installed or put any value on them when making an offer on your home.

I put little emphasis on a warranty myself - when the next replacement window project on that homes comes in 35 to 40 years or longer, who knows who will own that house. Or if the company will truly honor that warranty from 40 years ago. Yes, I've become jaded over time :)

My emphasis is on buying the very best window brand/model and getting great installation. These two factors mean you shouldn't have any warranty issues to deal with for the next 25 years.

The Zen quote on the SL Classic at $24K would be my number 2 pick and the Anlin Catalina Windows at $30K would be number 3. The ProVia is the one I would pursue myself.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2023

[Scott's Reply]

Appreciate the candid feedback. Having never dealt with it, I wasn't sure if a next homeowner would put any real value in a transferable warranty or not but if history says they don't, it certainly doesn't make a lot of sense to go that route and pay more. The Provia doesn't qualify for the tax credit but on a project this size I'm not too concerned about trying to chase that by adding cost that likely exceeds that credit. It was the window that I felt made the most sense so thanks for confirming. I did like the Anlin but the installer only warrants the install for a year where Zen does better than that which makes us feel a bit better.

Again, thanks for having a great site with tons of information to help us with research.

Scott - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

No problem, Scott. Glad I could provide at least a bit of direction :) I think it's the right call -- I'm always surprised by what qualifies for the tax credit -- it's a screwy system because the Endure SHOULD qualify based on how well made a window it is. Best of luck on the project!

DaBella Reviews Minnesota

Hi Dane, love the site and what great work you do. We recently bought a house with original (1998) casements from DaBella that are junk and probably should have been replaced in the class action suit. I am located in Rochester Minnesota and would love to hear your thoughts on window brands and models to look into as I embark on this replacement project. Many thanks in advance and keep up the phenomenal work!

Robert - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Robert, here are my Minnesota recommendations for you to take a look at.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2023

DaBella Reviews vs Apex

Dane, I am in St. Louis Park MN 55426 and I got pricing from Apex, DaBella and Hoffmann Weber (Provia Endure Windows).

I have to replace a bay window with 2 side single hung, 2 sliders, and 1 double hung and 2 single casements. I did ask for pricing for the 3 basement windows which are a single pane but only HW gave me pricing to replace those.

Debella gave me pricing for 3 windows (the bay and the 2 sliders) and it was around $15K for double panes, $18 if I wanted triple pane

Hoffman Weber was $20,626.64 for retro installation on everything with triple pane double hungs (including basement replacements)

Apex gave me pricing for everything (could not give me pricing for basement replacements) and it was $10,371 for rough opening installation on 2 sliders and the bay window. $3,629 for the other 3 windows with retro installation. Bay Windows Prices

The financing options and cost for the Apex are most appealing but I am curious what your thoughts are on the good/better/best option for this area? I feel like in your reviews you didn’t give the best ratings to Insignia brand…should I be looking at another brand of window?

Emily - Homeowner - from 2022

[Website Editor Reply]

Emily, Apex makes a good window in the Insignia. I don't consider it to be a top tier window like the ProVia Endure, but it is still quite good. If the Apex branch has lots of good to great reviews in your area, then I would strong consider using them given the price. Apex Windows Reviews

Your bids aren't apples to apples so it's hard for me to give you a real solid response. I would definitely look at the company reviews to see how they stack up against one another.

DaBella Reviews in Denver Colorado

Hello again Dane,, I was thinking I will be 70 and never really thought about the fact I could be out of there in 5 years. So maybe should be more entry level.

Also, how many bids do I need. Do I get two quotes from different companies like for the Anlin? I had trouble finding a lot of them for CO. Then of course many only work in the Denver area. I hope I am not bothering you too much. Is what I have below significant?

Bluebird: Sunrise Verde, Anlin

Five Seasons: Amerimax, Anlin - Amerimax Windows Reviews

All Pro: Simonton, Therma-Tru

Window World: Comfort World

Leading Edge: Sunrise, Anlin

Hansons: appears to do there own. They do triple pane on everything.

K-Designers: Americas Dream. That is all they have on the website. Might be there own brand. All they do is triple pane.

DaBella: Alside many sone of them Mezzo

Ellen - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ellen, your timeline in the home is fairly important. If you are only going to be in your home for five years, then spending top dollar probably does not make sense.

These are the best windows from your selections if you are going to be in your home for 10 plus years: Sunrise Verde, Anlin, Amerimax, and Kensington. All very good optionss. For me, any of them would serve you well, but I would check the online reviews of the installation companies and use this as one of my data points. For instance, I checked on Bluebird and they get excellent reviews and sell the Sunrise Verde. This would be a top pick for me if it fits your timeline and budget.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021

[Ellen's Reply]

Thank you so very much for your reply. Should I even be doing the windows? Is it a waste of time and money? We never know what is coming up for all of us so it is a guess on my part for five years, could be longer. Some final items

Would I use the 10 plus window suggestions for the 5 year time frame.

Should I get reviews on all of the windows listed above?

Should anything be upgraded such as the glass? Or stay away from upgrades?

Would it be less expensive if I use a single hung(that is what I have now) or could sliders be used?

Thank you for your patience with me as I decide what to do. I know that I have taken a lot of your time. But I do not yet think of myself as old. My age is finally hitting me.

Ellen - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ellen, I really can't tell you whether or not to do the windows, but the ROI does take a considerable amount of time. The better comfort/temperature inside your home and sound reduction is an immediate improvement.

I would quickly google and look at the overall Dabella reviews from yelp, google, angi's list and see if you can get a consensus on how good or bad they are. Do this for each installation company.

A good low-e glass is fine in my opinion. This coes standard with any quality vinyl window these days

Sliders can be used but they are less energy efficient than single hungs. Not a huge issue though, although if you struggle with rooms being too hot or cold during summer and winter, than go with a good casment, single or double hung window.

Dabella Reviews And Quotes

Hi Dane, I live in the Seattle area.

I was just approached by Apex and here is the quote:

For 38 slides of windows + 2 sliding doors, they ask for 49,911 before tax.

After I provided my info on your website, I got contacted by two more local contractors: Debella and Harley. They will come in to give me a quote on Thursday. I will update you then.

Thanks in advance for reviewing my quote and providing suggestions.

Wynter - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Wynter, let me know what the other two contractors have to say. $49K before tax for 38 slides and 2 doors is not exactly cheap...

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021

DeBella Reviews And Price Quote

Hi Dane, I talked with DeBella, another provider suggested by Home Advisor. They offered Triple Pane at price of 119,200 and Double Pane at price of 66,158 for 35 windows and 2 doors. Am I going in the wrong direction? The quotes I got are higher and higher.

Sanchit - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sanchit, your lowest cost bid in the Sunrise Restoration is the best window of the bunch. The Champion is probably right behind this. The Sunrise Solace is the Sunrise Restoration, so they are asking $6000 more for the same window. I think the Apex Insignia is probably third on my list. Honestly, I would go with the Sunrise Restoration option. It is a fantastic window. All of the prices are close enough to tell me that this is about fair market price for this project.
