Great Lakes Windows
The Great Lakes Windows is a leading producer of vinyl windows. Its humble origin began in 1981 when a five-man team decided to venture into the business of creating vinyl materials for house fixtures in the city of Toledo in Ohio. At a time when the market for polyvinylchloride (PVC) made windows was only 3%, the group started to introduce a new product line of all white and mechanically fastened double hung, picture and slider windows.
After five years, the company was able to expand the line to bow, bay and casement windows. It also introduced several innovations that served as benchmarks of the manufacturing business. It uses a special welding technique that develops a single concrete unit and keeps the framework, as well as the grid areas, rock-hard and sturdy over a long period of time. Staples, nails and glues were not used in any of the products for the first time. It creates vinyl windows by using an argon conductor and crafted vinyl frames with its R-Core feature.
A menu of decorative glasses, raw brass, tilt latches, and triple locking mechanisms was made available. It launched the use of patented grain textures as its interior finishing. It was the first to provide its customers with a negotiable warranty for every window that has been purchased. Its originality and marketing prowess enables the company to grow and finally led to its transfer to a bigger manufacturing facility in the village of Walbridge in Ohio. Today, this company has more than 450 employees and 750 advertisers and partner retailers making and selling millions of organic windows in almost all the states in America.
Great Lakes Windows can custom-make the right windows that its customers need. It currently offers the following product lines: UniFrame, PlyGem Lifestyles, Seabrooke, Napco Window Systems 2500 and 3500, BayShore, and Grandview 3000, 4000, 5000. Each product line is composed of a set of different window styles such as the Double Hung, Sliding Windows, Casement, Bay Window, Bow Window, Garden Window and Sliding patio doors.
You can customize the window style with your choice of decorator grids, designer glass and color combinations. Decorative grids come in Classic, Williamsburg Narrow Brass, and Georgian grids, which are mounted in between panes of glass. The designer glass comes in Original, Classic, or Contemporary designs, each of which is hand-crafted to perfection. The clear or stained hand cut glass is placed in between two sheets of secured insulated glass. Each glass is not just beautiful but is fully insulated and thus energy efficient. The styles also provide you with dual color combinations. The interior and exterior colors can be blended beautifully with the shutters and sides of the windows.
Great Lakes Windows uses a flow feature that allows it to create a wide array of products and styles and maintaining its high-quality standards. It also uses modern technologies, which include welding tools and saws that are digitally controlled to have the right measurements and quality of the product; corner cleaners, which are CNC-managed to ensure aesthetic beauty, use of insulated glass with a fixed structuring for better grille and corner connection and spacers perfectly roll-formed for durability. The multi-awarded company is proud of its products that it offers a limited lifetime warranty that is transferable to the next owner of the house for your protection.
