Window World can put a fresh face on homes
If you can’t sell your house, you might as well improve it.
That’s the approach many homeowners have taken during the recent housing slump, and their improvement projects have often led them to Window World of Myrtle Beach.
“People are staying in their homes and are upgrading their homes and making them energy efficient,” said local Window World co-owner Scott DeHollander. “What a lot of folks are doing is they’re air-sealing their homes, they’re increasing efficiency in their heating and cooling units and then replacing the windows is just part of it.”
DeHollander and his wife Ronda have been operating a Window World business in Myrtle Beach for 15 years.
Before opening the store, Scott DeHollander had been looking to start his own business. He just happened to bump into the founder of Window World one day.
“That’s kind of the end of the story,” he said. “We’ve been here ever since.”
The DeHollanders opened store No. 7. Window World, the largest window replacement company in the country, now includes more than 220 stores nationwide.
Although Window World offers everything from vinyl siding and entry doors to storm doors and hurricane protection, its primary product, as the name suggests, is windows.
The store offers bay, sliding, double-hung and garden windows, among others. In recent years, Window World has seen a greater interest in energy-efficient windows.
Just replacing a single-pane glass window with a Low-E insulated window can generate about 35 percent savings in energy bills, Scott DeHollader said.
“We have had customers that have seen up to 50 percent, but that’s kind of unique,” he said. “The windows in your home are always going to be your greatest source of heat loss. If there’s anything that we can do to improve that, it just makes it that much better in
Along with meeting all coastal codes, Scott DeHollander said his windows carry the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. They’ve earned a reputation for quality in the community. In 2013, Window World received a J.D. Power Award for customer service.
With great success, comes great responsibility. Through the Window World Cares program, Window World has raised $4 million to date for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and has flown over 53 missions for Veterans Airlift Command, flying injured vets as their needs arise.
Window World has been voted the best window company in the area by the Myrtle Beach Herald’s readers for 13 straight years.
Scott DeHollander appreciates the positive feedback from his customers.
“Our customers are our best salespeople,” he said. “I know I’m giving our customers a good product at a fair price. So I can sleep in peace at night.”
Window World is located at 131 Causey St. in Myrtle Beach. The store is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on Saturday. For more information, call 445-9921 or visit windowworldofmyrtlebeach.com.
