Monarch Windows is an 1888-established business founded by Raleigh McGee Jenkins Sr. It began as a supplier of building materials in lumberyards and contractors in Birmingham, Alabama, but in 1936, Raleigh Jr. became the president and diverted into the manufacture of building products. This family-owned business continues to create wood windows, cellular composite windows, and aluminum clad windows for the North American market. Presently, the company is owned by Woodgrain Millwork, Inc., an Idaho-based company that is the largest producer of mouldings in the United States.
Monarch Windows is proud in providing windows that beat performance and efficiency requirements without being too expensive. It allows consumers purchase and own quality windows for less, and today, it has been its core principle to supply not only good window products, but also quality, value, and service. The company is affiliated with and certified by different organizations, such as the American Architectural Manufacturers Association, Insulated Glass Certification Council, Efficient Windows Collaborative, Forest Stewardship Council, United States Green Building Council, and the National Fenestration Rating Council.

Monarch Windows is true to its promise in creating windows that enhance the look of a home and give it superior elemental protection. These windows use the cardinal low emissivity 270 glass filled with argon gas inside, providing the needed insulation from heat, sound, and dirt. Other competitors use two kinds of energy-efficient glass, which makes the price of the product more costly. The company uses the highest possible quality in its glass material to save homeowners money without sacrificing quality.
These windows are also performers when it comes to several tests conducted by the NFRC. Depending on the window type, the U-values received are between 0.28 and 0.48, numbers indicating that the windows pass the standards in the industry. These windows also provide hassle-free operation with their perfectly levelled sashes, and they are easy to clean because the sashes can be tilted in, removed, and replaced in minutes. Moreover, high-quality locks are used, as well as tempered glass, to give security. To make sure that they are energy efficient, the windows use the latest warm-edge technology that is enhanced even more by capped foam weatherstripping. These windows are also resistant to water because special water repellents and preservatives were used to make them very reliable.
What Monarch can be proud of is the range of options it offers for customizing the windows. Wood exterior finishes can be white, cream, sand, bronze, and green, while hardware colors available are white, cream, oil rubbed bronze, and beige. For the glass glazing, customers can opt for clear, bronze, low E, gray, or obscure. The grilles can be permanent divided lites, simulated divided lites, or grille between the glass. Screens, window shape, and grille color can also be customized.
Monarch Windows informs its customers on how to maintain the finish, hardware, and other components of the windows. Warranties given differ according to several factors. The company gives one year limited warranty for all wood products, ten for clad products, twenty for vinyl products, and ten years for glass.
