Are you thinking of replacing your windows soon? Weather Shield manufactures windows right here in the US so your purchase remains domestic. With so many US jobs shipped overseas these days, it’s no wonder you’re making it a priority to buy American made products.

American Made Windows from Weather Shield

We have been a proud manufacturer of American made windows since 1955. Today our production facility is located in Medford, Wisconsin and we employ more than 1,900 US employees. We take great pride in keeping our manufacturing process domestic. This attitude of making American made windows a priority benefits both our employees and our customers.

Reasons to Buy American Made Windows

Whether you purchase American made windows for your home renovation project or new corporate office, here are the benefits you can expect:
  • Support the US economy: When you make a purchase, your money goes to the manufacturer. If that manufacturer is based overseas, your money leaves US circulation. However, if you purchase American made products, the money stays close to home, where it’s used to make other local purchases that further stimulate the economy. The earnings are also taxed, which contributes to local, state and federal budgets.
  • Stop supporting unfriendly countries: Factories are popping up in countries that fight against American democracy. By purchasing from a US-based company, you know you’re not inadvertently funding a political conflict with another country.
  • Keep jobs in the US: Once jobs move overseas, they usually stay there. By supporting a company that employs American workers, you show your desire to keep jobs here. Your support of domestic manufacturers helps keep your friends, family and even yourself adequately employed and earning a living wage.
  • Support human rights: Many countries permit harsh working conditions and child labor. Thanks to workers’ rights laws here in the US, you can rest assured that your American made windows are manufactured at a safe facility where workers earn a fair wage.
  • Endorse eco-friendly manufacturing: America boasts hefty environmental regulations that many other countries lack. Your domestic window purchase ensures that both the glass and frame were manufactured with the environment in mind.
  • Ensure you purchase a safe, high-quality product: Along with lax environmental regulations in other countries, safety and quality standards are also often limited. This may result in products with harmful lead paint or low-quality parts. Under American consumer protection laws and quality standards, you know your domestic window purchase is safe and built to last.
  • Promote eco-friendly delivery: Transporting American goods within the country requires much less fuel than importing products manufactured overseas. Because of this, buying from an American-based company lowers the product’s carbon footprint, which is good news for the environment.
