If you haven’t heard yet–and we don’t imagine you have unless remodeling is your life like it is ours–but Window Nation just placed 6th on the 2016 Remodeling 550 List which is published by Remodeling Magazine. Considering the fact that we’ve only been in business for 10 years, we’re pretty pumped. So, how does a 10-year-old remodeling company place 6th out of all the remodeling companies in the United States? We’re glad you asked.
Sure, we’ve installed over 275,000 windows throughout Ohio, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia and you learn a lot when you’ve installed a lot of windows. And, sure, Window Nation was founded by two guys who are third-generation window experts; but experience isn’t the secret sauce that has made us a fierce competitor in the marketplace. It is our commitment to giving our customers what they’re looking for.
Aaron and Harley Magden, co-owners of Window Nation, say they learned their customer-centric business model growing up under the guidance of their father and grandfather. Harley says, “We believe in doing well by doing good.” That is to say: if you do a good job and make a good product, you’ll do well financially.
Window Nation now employs 246 people who share this philosophy. It is the glue that holds it all together. It is the goal that keeps everyone pushing forward. It is a way of doing business that makes everybody happy. Our customers are happy because they know we want to do right by them, and our employees are happy because they know that, at the end of the day, they don’t have to wonder if they’re going to run into a disgruntled customer at the grocery store. Of course, we’re kidding. It is so much more than that.
People really want to work for a company that does a good job. They want to know that they are a part of something that matters; and Window Nation’s employees know that we give people the best bang for their buck, lower their energy costs, increase their quality of life, and make their homes more beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to do that for a living?
Aaron says, “We believe in this wholeheartedly. There’s no shortage of great companies out there to work with. So our goal every day is to make our customers feel good about their decision, and show we’re on their side, throughout the entire process, and beyond.”
We’re excited that we’ve leaped up from 9th place last year, to 6th place this year. That means we’re doing a good job; and we know that if we do a good job…we’ll keep doing well.
