Don Young Windows Reviews

Our Don Young Windows reviews (updated in 2024) from our editors, contractors and homeowners who are familiar with their windows, customer service, warranty and much more.

The Basics: Don Young Windows are out of Houston and they make high quality thermally broken aluminum clad windows. Aluminum windows are a good option for ver hot climates like Texas because they are very strong and sturdy (although not very energy efficient).

Their Windows: Don Young also makes vinyl windows, although most contractors would say that their vinyl windows are just middle of the road.

Complaint: The only other concern when it comes to DYW is that they basically allow any contractor to sell their windows – which is either good or bad depending on your perspective. On the plus side, this increases the number of windows manufactured and sold, which keeps their pricing more competitive. On the down side, this takes away some of the quality controls that other companies can maintain by limiting the number of distributors that can sell their windows in a certain area.

Bottom Line: The bottom line when it comes to Don Young is to make sure the installer knows the product and is recommending a window that is the best for your situation and not their pocketbook.

Company Rating: 8.0 out of 10

Would you say that aluminum or vinyl is the better material for Houston? I’m getting the runaround from these different salespeople coming out to the house. They each say their windows are the best and the other guys are crap. You seem like you’re a straight shooter so what say you? Thanks in advance.

Johnnie, I would say that thermally broken aluminum windows are probably the way to go. Or a high quality vinyl window. Either one will work and good quality installation is the key. Go with someone who installs lots of one window, stands behind their work and really enjoys what they do.

Aluminum Windows vs Vinyl

We’re in the Dallas area and can’t decide between some of the better vinyl window options like Sunrise and Simonton or whether we need to go with aluminum windows. I currently have a Don Young window from two years ago and it has been great. Any advice is appreciated.

Don Young makes a great thermally-broken aluminum window – especially their single hung. If the windows are large, I’d go aluminum without a doubt. If they are smaller than say 36″ by 72″, then vinyl windows should certainly be in the mix. Some options in your area include Soft-Lite, Sunrise and Simonton – with the Simonton you are going to need to go with a sash reinforcement upgrade.

The other thing about Simonton in Texas is that their products are sold though wholesalers, which means that anyone with a pick up truck can turn around and sell them to homeowners, regardless of whether they specialize in installing replacement windows. If you want to refer to our Don Young windows reviews page, you can get additional information on this manufacturer, which is one of my top recommendations for the state of Texas.
