Florida : A Unique Market

Friday, October 2, 2009
Brett Roth Avatar Brett Roth's Insight Into Windows, Doors and Coating
In the United States there are somewhere around 4,000 windows manufacturers. Many of these companies are small, local companies, with less than 200 employees. However, there are the larger ones with upwards of 7,000 employees.  FAS works with both ends of the spectrum. Custom Window Systems based out of Ocala Florida is a small business with 180 employees, and on the other hand Andersen out of Bayport Minnesota has 8,500 employees. Of these 4,000 companies, only about 100 are approved for use in the Florida market. This is because there are stringent rules and regulations. Given the threat of hurricanes and the inclement weather we experience here in Florida, not any window will do.
Just because a window can be sold in Florida does not mean that FAS will carry it. We have experimented with many different companies, and have narrowed down to what we consider to be the top-notch manufacturers. Andersen, CWS, Eagle, PGT and Simonton are all companies that have made it to the top 100 replacement window companies. We sell these products because we know they are quality. Our customers know it too. We want every job we do to be exactly what our customer wants and needs.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
