Buying an Older Home? Consider the Windows

Posted by on Mar 27, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

There are some people who like everything new. They get a new car every few years, and whenever they move, it’s always into some brand new building or home. That’s fine for them – but some people like homes with a little history. Like a comfortable suit, they’ve been lived in. They have history. They’ve housed many a family in their days. Many older homes also have interesting character. They may be more individual than homes built by the hundreds in the suburbs. They may boast architectural detail, like crown moldings, ornate...

Different people take all kinds of different roads to success. For us, there has ever only been one road and that’s the one traveled with integrity. If you've been a homeowner for awhile, you've needed repairs. You may have noticed that the home improvement industry is peppered with honest workmen and not-so-honest workmen. There are true craftsmen who take pride in their products and those who just get by. If you’re unlucky, your vendor is long gone when you need a warranty repair, if you even got a warranty.When my brother and I founded...

Windows do have an expected life. For most types and brands, it’s 25 to 50 years. That’s a pretty big...

I Tell My Staff: “It’s the Little Things.”

Posted by on Feb 5, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

I’m a pretty hands-on manager as is my brother. It’s the way we agreed to run this business when we first started out. So we are both in contact with our installers, office staff, warehouse staff – everyone – frequently. One of the points I make with these staff in training sessions and whenever we meet is that the little things make a big difference.  I know this is true because I hear about it in the testimonial letters we get from people who have purchased hurricane windows from us. I don’t ask for these testimonials, they just...

You’ve Got to be Willing to Spend the Time

Posted by on Jan 31, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

I would be willing to bet that people who have never bought hurricane windows from us have no idea how much care we put in before a sale ever takes place. And I am sure that many of our competitors would be shocked. I know this because sometimes after I spend time with a prospective customer, explaining our replacement window and door products, showing them samples and answering their questions, they say things like, “Boy, that other company never took the time to let me ask questions like you do.” This is just the way I do business. I...

When it comes to protecting one’s home against storm damage, I find that there are many misconceptions surrounding this subject. So when I’m talking to someone about replacement windows or even when I’m talking to them socially, I have to correct these misconceptions just to help people stay safe. Here’s what I’m talking about: Hurricane “film” on your windows is just as good as replacement windows. Putting protective film on your windows does strengthen them somewhat. But you have to look at what the major manufacturer says...

It’s Winter in Florida – Was it Really Useful to Get those Replacement Windows?

Posted by on Dec 18, 2013 in Blog | Comments Off

So we got through the hurricane season pretty unscathed this year. Despite the weeks of rain, we didn’t have much in the way of tropical storm activity. So you got replacement windows and now it’s winter. Is their usefulness over until next summer? Not at all. Remember 2010, the coldest Florida winter in three decades. There were plenty of freezing and even below-freezing nights. It’s all up to the jet stream and how far south it dips.  I saw a lot of comments in the last week about how freezing the whole country was – except for...
