America’s Largest Exterior Remodeler is Put to the Test and Earns Good Housekeeping Seal for Eighth Year in a Row
NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C., July 21, 2015 — Window World®, America’s largest replacement window and exterior remodeling company, proudly announces that after rigorous evaluation, its windows earned the Good Housekeeping Seal for the eighth consecutive year. Now in its 20th year of business, Window World continues to build on the quality of products and services it offers, with this latest accolade adding validation that the Window World promise to provide “Superior Products, Professionally Installed, at a Guaranteed Low Price” is a long-term differentiator.
“Window World is dedicated to providing world-class, American-made windows and doors, installed with careful attention to detail,” said Mark Bumgarner, vice president of operations for Window World. “We are proud to be one of only three companies in the home improvement industry that currently sells windows that have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal.”
To determine whether or not to grant the Seal, The Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) evaluates safety, performance, ease of use, durability and design. Through this extensive process, GHI goes above and beyond to identify the best products on the market, and then stand behind those findings. Good Housekeeping offers a two-year limited warranty on seal-bearing products, replacing, repairing or providing a refund up to $2,000 for any merchandise found to be defective. This warranty complements Window World’s own lifetime limited warranty, one of the central tenets of the Window World philosophy.
Dependable resources like the Good Housekeeping Seal, recommendations from family and friends, and online reviews play an important role in buyers’ purchasing decisions. To assist in making real-life feedback available to all its customers, Window World provides its Window World reviews webpage, sharing hundreds of comments from homeowners nationwide. Helping consumers make informed decisions about their renovations is key to the customer satisfaction that enables Window World to lead the industry and consistently earn accolades like the Good Housekeeping Seal.
