We have worked with Energy Shield twice now and have been very happy with their work. We previously had windows replaced by another company that installed Energy Shield windows, and they quoted us prices much higher than when we worked with Energy Shield directly. Energy Shield’s installation quality is also much higher in our experience. The interior trim on our windows installed by the other company looks sloppy and is failing in places after only a few years. The attention to detail by Energy Shield’s installers is great, and the installation on all our windows looks clean and professional. We would highly recommend Energy Shield to anyone looking for high quality and a good value.

Amazing windows, all 12 windows installed in 1 day. They were clean and fast and did great job. Definitely can tell a difference right away with the reduction of heat coming in, and the house is much cooler especially in the rooms on the south side of house.

Our home is cooler in the AZ desert with their Low-E replacement windows, A/C runs less, cost reasonable, and excellent installer crew. Recommended!

The entire process was easy. They do not do high pressure sales and have very competitive prices. Each person who came to our home was respectful, friendly and knowledgeable. Installation was so fast! We are very pleased with our new windows!! House already feels cooler and quieter. Highly recommend this company!!

The windows are beautiful. I almost hate to have them covered with shutters!! The team did a fabulous job. They were efficient, conscientious and cleaned up the work areas. Bravo all around.

The Energy Shield crew showed up on time and began installing with out a hitch. They covered the floors inside and picked up all their trash before they left. I walked with Ramon the job Forman and identified locks that’s needed adjustment and this was taken care of immediately. They cleaned the window tracks so every window glided and moved with literally one finger. They cleaned the glass and left the windows looking new. I would not hesitate to recommend Energy Shield. I am one satisfied customer!!!

New 14 foot slider and a picture window installed in one day . This Required demolition and rebuild. Next day – repair of stucco and sheet rock finished and ready for paint. Exemplary work. A few minor tweaks needed, not surprising in a multi-faceted job. These were addressed fully and satisfactorily in less than 4 days from original build out. Would hire again!

Great company to work with. We replaced all the windows in our home. From a sales to installation and overall quality and price… we could not be happier with our choice to use Energy Shield

Replaced all of the windows in the house. We had two different crews doing the work. I can’t say enough about the completed job. The windows look great and the stucco job looks great too. I think all of them did a 5 star job!

The window installers were very impressive in their workmanship. The company did everything that they said they would. In fact went above and beyond in taking care of my project.

We had Energy Shield replace the doors from the house to the garage and from the garage to the side yard. The process was seemless. They measured twice, stayed in regular contact, and we’re extremely professional. The doors were high quality and beautifully framed. We are thrilled with the finished result and wowed by the experience.

Ismael and his crew are doing the entire apartment complex I live in. They came through today and were efficient and polite. They did a great job and my sliding doors look great.

Completely satisfied with Energy Shield from start to finish. Mike, my sales person was great. Knowledgeable, friendly, very responsive to phone calls and inquiries and no pressure. Price was right, product is good. Big decision factor for me is that Energy Shield manufactures their own windows here in AZ. No middleman to deal with if things go wrong. Installers Luis and Isreal, were prompt and completed the job in one day as promised. They were efficient, careful of my home as they worked and left everything clean and in order. Highly recommend Energy Shield.

Two crews and two days to compete our 20 window replacement. They were professional, well trained and courteous. Did a great job and I highly recommend Energy Shield. They even removed glass blocks in guest bathroom and replaced with a “rain glass” window to prevent the enormous heat loss. This included the stucco and dry wall repair. Looks great.

We had the best experience with Energy Shield! They were very professional and made the whole process easy for us from beginning to finish. Their install techs were polite, friendly, and very professional. Install day was so quick and easy and no stress or mess. The windows and doors that they installed are great quality and I’m so happy we chose this company. I highly recommend Energy Shield!

Energy Shield makes their own windows no middleman. That’s how they are able to offer quality windows at a fair price. Everyone we dealt with in the company was professional and friendly down to the installers. We initially sought Home Depot. Their price was a lot higher for equal or less quality windows. If you’re considering replacing your windows try Energy Shield.

Energy shield installed replacement windows for our entire home. From a price perspective, they could not be beat. Their install team was good. Their work was generally neat and they generally respected our home. Their finished product seems good. What wasn’t great: The QC from their factory leaves something to be desired. 4 of 9 openings had window panes that were scratched upon install. One of the replacement panes sent also had scratches. I am at a complete loss as to why these would have been sent. Some of the scratches were on the inside surface of the window panes, so the damage didn’t happen in transit. Additionally, one of the wi dow locks did not work and a screen was missing. They ended up coming out twice after install to make all the windows acceptable. The guys who came for the rework were very nice, but it was very inconvenient that they had to come twice. During one of these visits, one of the guys was carrying a larger window pane on his own and damaged a family photo and the adjacent wall paint. Somethings to be aware of: The time to install was about 3 months. This was significantly longer than other, more expensive options. The caulking around the new window frames seems wider and a bit messier than the other replacement windows I have seen installed in our condo complex. Minor, but potentially irritating to someone who likes neat work. 4 stars: Because of the price, I would use them again in spite of the other items. The inconvenience of requiring 3 total visits. The unecessary damage to our photo and wall and the reluctance of the supervisor to arrive at a reasonable accommodation which put the finish guy in an awkward position (which he handled very well.)

This is the second large slider that Energy Shield has installed and each time, the price was right, they provided full service including dry wall, electrical snd patching (excluding Painting). Every contractor was on time and did quality work. The entire project was completed on time with minimal disruption. I would buy from Energy Shield again. No question.

Benny & Ramon just completed my whole house replacement installation of windows and sliding patio glass doors and it amazing what a difference they make. Itt was a 2 day job and they arrived on time yesterday and got right on it. They were both very professional and obviously took pride in doing a great job. The windows and doors were made to order in their factory and each fit perfectly as they should the first time they were put in place and no doubt will be a huge improvement to keep my house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The products are made here in Phoenix to deal with the extreme heat and fine dust and they have a warranty that backs up their product claims. I was happy with my decision to buy Energy Shield and even happier now after the install. Great product, expert installers and very happy customer. Don’t take my word for it, give them a call and start enjoying the benefits of windows and doors made in Phoenix for customers in Phoenix and weather specific to Phoenix, Arizona. You live here, you know what I’m talking about!!!

Converted 5 windows into sliders and replaced 6 transom windows. The 3 crews were amazing from start to finish. Crews are super respectful, reliable and clean. Highly recommend this company with amazing service , 5 starts not enough !

OMG, SO happy with these people! Our new windows are wonderful, and made us realize just how bad our 23-year-old builder-grade windows were. Their crew was on time and did a great job cleaning up afterward. We chose this company because they manufacture locally, have their own crew (no subs), and give a lifetime warranty on the windows and mechanisms. The consultant that met with us gave us a couple of great ideas for changing the design a bit of a couple of windows, which really made things look more high-end. AND they were about half the price of “the other guy” – bonus!

I am amending my review. Company contacted me and moved my stucco fix up to the 21st. Crew came this morning, on time, and got right to work. Not only did they do a beautiful job matching the stucco texture, they poured a concrete support under the lip of the door so it won’t flex. They also need brought me a screen door. They were fast and friendly and cleaned up everything. Very happy now. I am not finished dealing with this company, so maybe it’s too early to post a 2 star review. The 2 installers showed up on time and got straight to work. We had already removed the inside mounding and threshold because we wanted to keep it. They did not score the stucco on the outside and so, of course it tore away in 3 areas. They told us the stucco repair crew would be out on Monday to repair the holes and drop off the screen door, which was sent to us broken. Monday morning I got a call to schedule stucco repair. First available date, May 23,over 4 weeks out. And sliding screens are on back order. Can’t leave slider open due to no screen and when I am sitting on my patio I get to look at 3 ragged holes in the house. Very disappointing. Hopefully things will get fixed properly.

I acquired many quotes for replacing my windows and Energy Shield was extremely competitive not just in price but the service received just in first meeting for quote process. Window replacement was scheduled with parts and workers being on time with a notification letting me know when they’d arrive. With my job I wasn’t able to be there but my girlfriend complimented their cleanliness and how corgual they were. The windows look great and operate as promised!

Premium quality Windows and Doors

Doc Gettman
February 11, 2023

A+ company, A+ service, A+ product, A+ price. We had to have two doors replaced from our home to our backyard to pass pool inspection (old doors opened the wrong way and not self-latching). We got two other bids, one for triple their price, and one for double. Maybe there’s someone out there that can do it for less, but we felt their price was fair for the custom-size products we needed and installation; plus the patio sliders are made here in AZ. The installers and frame/stucco repair were polite, efficient, and cleaned everything up. The Maricopa County home shows are full of window and door companies. Just go with Energy Shield and skip the sales pitches unless you’re really in to having your doors hand crafted by the Amish or whatever nonsense. Yeah, maybe a top-hung patio slider is amazing, but not for double the cost. Only downside was manufacturing time and availability of installation crews (they don’t use subcontractors). About 4 months from contract to install. Surprisingly enough (or maybe not so surprising), our doors are installed and we passed pool barrier inspection, yet the pool is still not completed. 5 stars. Next year we’ll probably get some windows replaced and we’re not going to bother getting quotes, we’ll just call Mike B.

Before we bought windows we decided to look at there showroom,to our surprise nice girl gave us a tour of the factory. After five bids from other company’s we chose Energy Shield.

This is the 2nd time we have had aged windows replaced by Energy Shield & will schedule replacement of the rest. First experience was great. The 2 installers that came out yesterday were really impressive. They installed 5 windows, one was the big front window, in approximately 6 hours. It was 106-degrees with high humidity. They were so quiet except for expected occasional equipment noise, that I was able to work without interruption. Looking forward to getting the rest replaced. We really appreciate the noise, heat & dust reduction we have with these windows.

I highly recommend Energy Shield for many reasons. They have a good product, made locally. They called to notify me about every date and detail concerning the installation. The finish work was professional and all of the installers were polite and easy to communicate . The bidding process was precise and work was completed as bid. We had three other bids and none of them informed us as well as Energy Shield, and carried through until finish. We love the windows..all eleven of them, including exterior door and two large sliders. What more an I say!

Lo maximo en calidad y tiempo

This company is one of the few out there that has the staff and expertise to perform new construction for windows and doors. We took out a wall in our kitchen that went out to our patio and replaced it with a 3 panel sliding door. We also took out an arcadia door and replaced it with a window. Did we run into hiccups? You bet we did, especially with the supply chain issues going on the last several years. This company worked to communicate every step of the way. From Robert the initial sales person, to the owner, the officer manager, the finance gal, the installation crew, the finishing crew, all were easy to work with and committed to resolving every blip that occurred. No complicated job is problem free, and the folks with this company stand head and shoulders above all others. We highly recommend them for your next project!

Are you a homeowner looking to give your home a much-needed facelift? If so, you’re not alone. Many homeowners are interested in upgrading or repairing their homes but struggle with the financial aspect of such projects. That’s where home improvement financing comes in. In this article, we will explore various financing options available to homeowners, providing expert advice and guidance on how to finance your remodeling project. Whether you’re looking to renovate your kitchen, add an extension, or simply make necessary repairs, we’ve got you covered.

What Types of Home Improvement Financing are Available?

When it comes to home improvement, financing options can provide you with the means to upgrade or repair your home without breaking the bank. Here are some types of home improvement financing that are available to homeowners:

1. Home Equity Loan: A home equity loan allows homeowners to borrow against the equity they have built up in their homes. These loans typically have fixed interest rates and repayment terms, making them a popular choice for larger home improvement projects.

2. Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC): Similar to a home equity loan, a HELOC also allows homeowners to borrow against the equity in their homes. However, a HELOC works more like a credit card, where homeowners can borrow and repay as they need, up to a certain credit limit.

3. Personal Loans: Personal loans are unsecured loans that can be used for various purposes, including home improvement. These loans typically have fixed interest rates and shorter repayment terms compared to home equity loans.

4. Cash-out Refinance: With a cash-out refinance, homeowners refinance their existing mortgage for a higher amount than what they currently owe. The difference between the new loan amount and the existing mortgage is then given to the homeowner as cash, which can be used for home improvement.

5. Credit Cards: While credit cards may not be the most ideal option due to their typically higher interest rates, they can be used for smaller home improvement projects or for purchasing materials and supplies.

6. Government Loans: Various government loan programs, such as the FederalHousing Administration (FHA) Title I Property Improvement Loan Program or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Home Improvement Loan, offer financing options specifically designed for home improvement projects. These loans often have favorable terms and lower interest rates, making them a great choice for eligible homeowners.

How to Choose the Right Financing Option for Home Improvement

With so many financing options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for your specific needs. Here are some factors to consider when selecting a home improvement financing option:

1. Interest rates: Compare the interest rates offered by different lenders or loan programs. Lower interest rates can save you money in the long run.

2. Repayment terms: Consider the repayment terms and monthly payments. Longer repayment terms may result in lower monthly payments, but you may end up paying more in interest over time.

3. Loan amount: Determine how much you need to borrow for your home improvement project. Some financing options may have minimum or maximum loan amounts.

4. Eligibility requirements: Review the eligibility requirements for each financing option. Some loans may have specific criteria, such as a minimum credit score or a certain amount of equity in your home.

5. Flexibility: Consider how flexible the financing option is. For example, a home equity line of credit allows you to borrow and repay as needed, giving you more control over your finances.

6. Additional fees and costs: Take into account any additional fees or costs associated with the financing option, such as closing costs or origination fees. These can add to the overall cost of your project.

7. Timeframe: Consider how quickly you need the funds for your home improvement project. Some financing options may have longer processing times than others.

8. Customer reviews and reputation: Research the lender or loan program to ensure they have a good reputation and positive customer reviews. This can give you peace of mind and confidence in your choice.
