Why Our Windows Are Made in America
At WinChoice USA, we love making our products right here in America. It’s right there in our name! After all, because we strive to be America’s choice for replacement windows, we want to ensure that you end up with a quality product, and the best way to do that is for us to make them right here in the States.
Sure, we could enlist the help of overseas companies to manufacture the products that we make, but that would mean that we couldn’t be as hands-on when it comes to quality control. Instead, we make them here so that our team can ensure that everything is made just the way it’s supposed to be. We have high standards for the quality of the replacement windows we make because we want them to stand the test of time.
Speaking of which, each of our products is backed by an industry-leading limited lifetime warranty, ensuring that no matter what the future holds for your windows, you’re covered. It’s just another part of what makes our products so great! However, it starts with the quality of our products, and as we mentioned, the way we ensure top quality is to manufacture our windows in the good old US of A. It’s what sets us apart, and we want to share an inside look at what you can expect. Keep reading to learn more, or contact our team today to get a free estimate for your window installation project.
Better Products — Period
When is the last time you bought something that was made in America? These days, it gets harder and harder to do it even if you want to. It used to be easy to walk into a store and grab a pair of blue jeans that were woven at a local mill, sent to a local factory for assembly, and then shipped by a worker to their final destination. Nowadays, you likely have to take your search online to find jeans that are made in the United States.
The same is true for many other products. From boots to shirts to razors to dishes to watches, most of the items that we use on a daily process are made overseas. Why is that, you ask? There are a number of factors at play, and we certainly don’t want to pretend that we know how other companies make their business decisions. In many instances, however, it often comes down to the bottom line. In other words, can a company minimize its costs upfront to maximize its profits? This is a fair question. After all, overseas labor is nearly always less expensive than it is in the States.
Unfortunately, like we mentioned above, it means that the company doesn’t have as strict of control over the quality of the final product. Let’s go back to the example of blue jeans. If you’re old enough to remember this, there was probably a time that you could walk into a store and buy a pair of pants in your size without even trying them on. After all, the tag said your size, so you knew they’d fit. Nowadays, quality control is less rigid, and five pairs of pants in the exact same size will probably all fit quite differently.
The Same Is True of Replacement Windows
If the standards for quality control have disappeared for clothing, imagine what it’s like for windows! Is a window that’s supposed to measure 4’ x 4’ actually going to be that size? Add in the fact that many factories overseas are using the metric system and it gets even more confusing. American windows are generally measured in inches and feet, and similar measures in centimeters and millimeters are often just a little bit off.
Do the workers in these factories do a fine job? Absolutely! Workers overseas are good people who work hard. At the end of the day, they’re just trying to make a living. Unfortunately, sometimes measurements can get lost in translation and products can arrive damaged during shipping. It’s just a fact of life.
We certainly don’t want to come across as a company that bashes products that aren’t made in America just for the sake of doing so. In fact, many products that come from factories across the globe are known for their high quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. For us, however, it just makes sense to manufacture our windows in the United States because it allows our team to be involved in every step of the process. The end result? A product that we know is superior because we’re able to oversee its production from the time your order is placed until the time our window installers are placing your replacement window in the frame.
