I, as one of the resident blog writers here at All American Window and Door Company, wanted to get feedback from some real, live customers on their experiences with All American Window and Door Co. and the products we carry.

To that end, I was able to stop by during a few installations and talk to a few of the wonderful folks who’ve welcomed us into their homes and entrusted us with their business and hard-earned cash.

Welcome to spring! Or as we like to call it: the brief meteorological neurosis that blurs the brutal chill of winter with the swelter of summer… and every point in between. As you know, here in Wisconsin we can have 70s and shorts in the morning, scarves and winter jackets in the evening. Driving, cold rain one minute, sun tan lotion the next. Spring in Wisconsin will keep you on your toes. But that’s why we love it. From the first moment we’re able to hit the kick lock on our Soft Lite Patio door… to the first time we see a robin on the lawn through our freshly opened Elements casement window… Spring is the time when we take stock of the efficiency of our vinyl windows and other products that have kept us warm all winter, and now we can finally open them up and let the fresh air in.

We have patio doors with numerous options so you can welcome mother nature into your home while customizing to fit your style and keep you comfortable along with offering extra protection from the elements when desired. Options include size, color, handle style, and glass…all so you can get exactly what YOU want! Our patio doors come standard with a 2-point Mortise locking, stainless steel system that insures your door will be secured into the jamb. You also have the option of a ToeBolt, which are stops that, when engaged, prevent your door from sliding more than 3 inches, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors while maintaining your peace of mind!

Now is also a great time to consider window replacement so you can keep the inside of your home comfortable regardless of the extreme conditions that will be upon us in a few months (have to be prepared!).

We’ll be doing an open house in May. Please stop back for details!

In early December, we took twenty of our dedicated employees on a trip to the proverbial holy land of windows: Soft-Lite, the company that manufactures every replacement window we sell here at All American Window and Door Company.

We toured the factory, located in Streetsboro, Ohio, for about four or five hours. We had the opportunity to see the warehouse and how things there operate and even got to speak to some of the employees, everyone from the engineers to the equipment operators. The experience was significant both in that we were able to learn more about both the products we sell and the incredible company behind them, as well as see the wonderful way Soft-Lite’s managers treat their employees, which is likely one reason for the company’s longevity and success.

all american winter installationsWhen you’re thinking of your wonderful new window, door, or siding installation, if you’re…well…a normal human and at least somewhat aware…you might be at least a little apprehensive.

We here at All American Window and Door Company recognize that our company’s success is determined by the products we sell as much as it is by our customers’ satisfaction with our process from start to finish.  With that in mind, we wanted to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for our installers, whom we sincerely believe to be some of the best in the business.

Today was a special day. Around 9 AM, much of the staff of All American Window and Door took a bit of time off from our busy schedules to attend the arrival of The Moving Wall, which we are enormously proud to help sponsor in our community.

What is it about the state fair? Is it the scent of fried everything in the air? Fried pickles, fried twinkies, fried spaghetti, fried people? Is it the people themselves – baked by a sweltering sun into wearing questionable cut-offs, ill-advised half shirts, mesh tee shirts over bodies that more closely resemble a wookie or a yeti? Is it the long ambling walks to take in all the sights and sounds? Is it the tiny baby animals and the scent of the livestock pens? Is it the carnival with its jangling slightly dubious looking rides that make you wonder if the attendant should pass out insurance waivers before taking your ticket? Is it the clashing sounds of various bands competing for noise with the bursting, blaring, bleating carnival rides? [Read more…]
