Since 2011. We started DaBella in 2011 and now have more than 46 offices throughout the United States. As the leading home improvement company in the region, we have exclusive deals with leading American manufacturers. These include roofing products from GAF®, siding by James Hardie® and Alside®, windows by AMI Preservation®, and baths and showers by Sentrel Bath Systems®.
Most projects don’t require a permit. In the event one is necessary, the homeowner will be responsible for the cost of obtaining it. We’ll determine if a permit is necessary and advise you on your options.
It varies. Factors like project size, the install season and the amount of customization required will ultimately determine your timeline. Once your project is scoped, your Project Coordinator will provide you with an install timeline.
If your project is inside—like a bath or shower replacement—YES. Someone needs to be available to let the contractors into the house. We also suggest that a homeowner be available during the project in case the contracting team has any questions.
We will assign your project a dedicated contracting crew. Whether you’re replacing your roof, siding, windows, or bath, DaBella uses only factory-trained installers who maintain manufacturer partners’ high quality standards.
Your Project Coordinator. If you have questions during installation, your Project Coordinator will be the one to answer them. Find your Local Office Info.
Not much. Once we understand your goals for your home and you’d like to proceed, we’ll ask for additional information. Then we can schedule an in-person meeting to take measurements, explain your options, and provide you with a quote on the spot.
No. In-person consultations and quotes are always free. Call 1-844-322-3552 or email us to schedule an in-person consultation and receive a quote for your project.

- Don’t use any kind of steel wool brushes or sponges. These cleaning products are too rough on your tub and could create scratches.
- Don’t use ammonia or bleach products. These chemicals break down acrylic over time and will cause extensive damage.
- Don’t use cleaners that use aerosol. These types of products also break down the acrylic material.
- Don’t use Paint thinner products as these are very harsh on your acrylic tub.
Cleaning products for your acrylic bathtub should be non-abrasive and gentle cleaners that won’t deteriorate your tub. Cleaning products that should be used include:
- A gentle bristled brush, or a terry cloth or a soft sponge will be perfect to scrape off dirt and soap scum.
- Dishwashing Liquid such as Dawn® Ultra Dishwashing liquid.
- Iron Out® Rust remover.
- Formula 409® All-purpose Cleaner
- CLR® Bath & Kitchen Cleaner
- Lysol® Power Bathroom Cleaner
- Tilex® Spray
- Lime Away® Spray
- Green Works®
- Spic & Span® spray

Yes, but nothing too difficult. We recommend you maintain records and conduct routine inspections to assure everything is working properly, but the GAF® roofs we install have the best warranty protection afforded by the Silver Pledge System Warranty at no additional cost to you. View Location Warranty Options.
Yes. Every DaBella roof comes with GAF’s Silver Pledge warranty—at no additional cost to you. Homeowners have the option of purchasing the Golden Pledge warranty.
Your DaBella team will dispose of any materials removed from your old roof. During the process, they’ll work with you on where to place materials for disposal, where new materials are staged and where to park vehicles.
Yes. We’ll provide you a detailed quote that includes removal of the old roof.
It can be, yes. But a roofing layover—or layering—is a temporary solution and may end up causing damage to your roof. In our experience, layering can invite problems like moss that will damage both the old and new shingles. In the end, this could cost you more than if you were to install a quality new roof.
Our roofing experts will carefully evaluate your roof in terms of area, layout, slope, exposure and architecture to determine the best roofing material for your project. We’ll present you with the options during our in-person meeting.
GAF®, exclusively. DaBella is a GAF-certified Master Elite® partner, using American-made products and factory-trained installers. A top-rated GAF® roof will build quality in your home and add lasting value. View Location roofing services.
Asphalt shingles are widely regarded as the most cost-effective roofing material. They offer a balance of affordability, durability, and ease of installation, making them a popular choice for many homeowners.

Should I get it checked?Why would I want new siding when I can just repaint the old siding?What siding products do you use?
Yes. Every DaBella siding project comes with either James Hardie or Alside’s industry-leading warranty. The warranty options vary, depending on which manufacturer and product is chosen. For more information visit Warranties.
DaBella can help. It’s best to have a DaBella expert look at the condition of your siding to determine if it needs to be replaced. Some common signs that you may need to replace your siding are cracking, color fading, rotting or any other visible damage. Schedule an Inspection.
Siding doesn’t require much maintenance. An occasional cleaning every 6 to 12 months will help maintain its quality appearance. We don’t recommend cleaning your siding with a pressure washer because it can cause damage. Instead, use a soft, medium bristle brush (non-metal) to remove dirt and debris.
Every project is different. DaBella experts will provide a quote that includes everything that they determine should be replaced, including, if necessary, trim, soffit work, eaves, etc. Please notify our experts of anything you think may need replacement so they can best advise you.
Yes. By the time you start to see problems like cracking, dry rot, or mold, it may be too late. Call DaBella at 1-844-322-3552 so we can examine the condition of your siding and advise you on your options.
Hidden damage. Problems that come with old siding, like rot and mold, are likely getting worse under the surface—even though your siding may look nice on the outside. Additionally, with our fade-resistant siding in a number of colors and styles, you won’t have to ever worry about painting your siding again. View Location Siding Services.

You may need to replace your windows if they’re damaged, warped or broken, you want to reduce your energy bill, your home needs a makeover, or your home was affected by a serious storm.
Yes, quality. Replacement windows vary significantly in construction and quality. We’ve partnered with the best in the industry, so you can trust the quality of your windows to provide year-round beauty, comfort and energy efficiency.
Premium products like AMI Preservation® windows provide benefits like energy efficiency and cost savings, improved comfort, reduced condensation, increased light and improved view, reduced fading.
Savings and efficiency. Energy-saving windows have argon gas between the panes to increase energy efficiency. With age, the seals fail and the gas escapes. A longer-term, more energy-efficient solution is to replace the window itself, saving you money over time.
Sadly, not much. As window seals fail over time, dirt, dust and other particles get trapped between the panes. Our experts can inspect your windows for free to determine whether or not your windows require replacement. Schedule a Consultation.
DaBella offers AMI Preservation®, and Alside® Sheffield® and Mezzo® windows. We have a variety of window styles to choose from—whether single or double hung, swing or clean—and custom fit our extensive selection of windows to your home. View Window Replacement Options.
