Wallside Windows was started by a fruit vendor named Martin Blanck in 1944. Mr. Blanck began with a small capital, but this did not stop him from accepting projects one after another from different contractors.
Because of the quality service he provided, the company grew from one businessman into a few machines and employees in Schaefer Road, Detroit. Mr. Blanck died of Parkinson’s disease in 2001, but he left a 72,000-square-foot facility in Taylor, Michigan to the ministrations of his three sons, Stuart, Stanford, and Fred.
Now sixty years in the business, Wallside Windows continues to provide customers with custom-manufactured windows that perfectly fit size and performance requirements. The company is a partner of Energy Star for creating energy-efficient windows, as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Fenestration Rating Council.
Wallside Windows has an array of quality windows for every home:
- Wallside Double Hung Windows
- Wallside Double Sliding Windows
- Wallside Bay and Bow Windows
- Wallside Casement Windows
- Wallside Garden Windows
- Wallside End-Vent and Center-Vent Sliding Windows
- Wallside Picture Windows
- Wallside Specialty Windows
This window company is proud of the quality customer service it provides. The company has a specific process followed to satisfy every order. The installers phone the customer before heading out, and in case the glass of the windows break in transit, a new one will be dispatched pronto without any delay. During installation, the interior surfaces of the house are covered with cloth before removing the old windows. Then, the new windows will be installed, and gaps will be filled with Fiberglas insulation to weatherproof the home, in addition to the necessary caulking for the exterior. The interior stop moulding of the windows will be replaced with quality pine or oak. After a successful installation job, the installers test the windows to ensure that they close and open; they also teach the customer how the windows work. The customer’s questions are also answered during the process.
Another pride of this company is the fact that it manufactures all its windows and does not sell another company’s products. These windows have a durable construction because of the fusion welded frames and sashes. The multi-chambered extrusions make the windows stronger and temperature efficient. Add to the energy-saving capabilities of these windows technologies like thermal pane glass and Intercept warm-edge spacers, the windows are sure to maintain cold in the summer and warm in the winter, aside from providing optimum ultraviolet protection. Moreover, these windows have dual layer of insulated glass filled with argon gas, which adapts outside temperature to the inside and provides acoustic reduction.
Wallside Windows also gives a lot of customization options for its windows. Two-tone exterior wood colors are available, and there are twenty-one exterior trim colors to choose from, including antique ivory, tuxedo gray, buckskin, imperial brown, herringbone, wicker, cranberry, and many others. Glass options can be grooved, Low E, leaded, tinted, stained, etched, reflecting, or obscure.
Wallside Windows gives a 35-year warranty to its windows, and this warranty stays even if the owner sells the home, and it can increase the retail value of the property.
