A good resource center is the place to start when you are building, remodeling or restoring a home. This article first appeared in SPACES Magazine published by the Contra Costa Times.
Windows and doors can make a house. They add style, provide convenience and save energy. Today, there are dozens of name brands to consider and thousands of styles, features and options. So it makes sense to find a resource that offers the widest selection and is staffed by experts who know the products inside and out.
Our Walnut Creek showroom is the largest in the area.

This location and Burlingame are Showrooms and Idea Centers offering comfortable, sit-down atmospheres where you can relax, take your time and get the most out of searching for the best windows and doors for your project. There are some things Dolan's recommends to get the most out of your experience.
Our Burlingame Showroom is boutique style.
If you are building a new home, bring your plans. If you are renovating or remodeling, bring any plans you may have, measurements for door and window openings, and pictures of the inside and outside of your home. Don't forget your notes. Remember to bring those reference files you have been collecting with pictures of other homes, product brochures and even paint samples if you are changing the exterior colors.
Another suggestion is to include your architect if you are starting the design of your home or renovation plans. Already working with a contractor? Then include the experts you are working with. Chances are they are very familiar with Dolan's and already work with us.
If you are redecorating and plan to upgrade windows and doors as part of the project, bring your decorator. Selecting the right windows and doors for the style and mood of your home is integral to obtaining the best results.
Note: In addition to the two Showrooms and Idea Centers, Dolan's three complete lumberyards also include window and door displays.
