NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. — Window World®, America’s largest replacement window and exterior remodeling company, is proud to announce that it has earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal for the tenth year in a row. Offering dependable home improvement products at a fair price has become a cornerstone of the Window World name, and the Good Housekeeping Seal further substantiates Window World’s commitment to provide the superior quality and service that its customers have come to expect.
“As America’s number one replacement window and exterior remodeling company, we’re proud to earn the Good Housekeeping Seal for the tenth consecutive year. The Seal remains a powerful indicator for our customers that we are dedicated to understanding and exceeding their needs as homeowners,” said Mark Bumgarner, vice president of franchise relations for Window World. “The Good Housekeeping name is a rarity in our industry, and we’re honored to be one of only two window companies whose products currently carry the Seal.”
To earn the right to use the Good Housekeeping Seal, a company’s products must withstand the rigorous evaluations of the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI). In one of six testing labs, GHI scientists and engineers use state-of-the-art equipment, feedback from consumer testers and review supporting data to evaluate which products maintain the levels of safety, performance, ease of use, durability, and design necessary to bear the Good Housekeeping name.
In an effort to provide financial protection to consumers, Good Housekeeping stands behind its Seal with a two-year limited warranty that replaces, repairs, or provides a refund of up to $2,000 for any Seal-bearing merchandise found to be defective within two years from the date it was first sold to a consumer by an authorized retailer. “It’s our job to inform consumers of what products they can trust. The Seal is more than just a sign of confidence — we put our money where our mouth is,” stated Rachel Rothman, Chief Technologist of the Good Housekeeping Institute.
Window World’s own limited lifetime warranty has become a vital part of the company’s ideology, and the combined assurance that comes from dual warranties further complements the outstanding quality that consumers have come to expect from Window World products.
