Columbus, OH – With great fanfare and excitement, Window Nation is proud to announce the opening of their newest showroom and training facility in Columbus, Ohio. The nearly 4,000 square foot office extends the company’s Ohio footprint to most of the state, a matter of pride for Ohio-natives Harley & Aaron Magden, who founded the company in 2006. Their unique approach utilizes locally sources and manufactured windows, most of which are made in the state of Ohio.

“Growing up in Ohio and being big Buckeye fans, we always had our eyes on opening a Window Nation showroom in Columbus,” said CEO Harley Magden, who co-founded the company a decade ago with his brother, Aaron. “After servicing Northern Ohio for over a decade now, we’re excited to now be able to install quality windows, doors & siding to homeowners in Central Ohio.”

The new flagship location for all of central Ohio is located at 6155-H Huntley Road in Columbus. The office will be the home to the central Ohio sales team and led by Columbus Sales Manager Bill Simpson, a long-time resident familiar with the unique nature of the market.

“I’m looking forward to bringing the Window Nation Way of exceeding customer expectations every day to all of my Central Ohio neighbors,” he said.

Nothing makes your home feel a little newer than a little home improvement. Whether it is something small or something big, home improvements can make that old house feel new and exciting. As we get ready to wind down another year, we’d like to give you some ideas that could really help make your home new and exciting:

  1. A small change that makes a big difference. You would be amazed what a simple change can do to spruce things up. A coat of paint on the kitchen cabinets, flower pots added to the edges of your front steps, rug applied to the stairs that lead to the second floor, new fixtures in the bathroom, or some other DIY project that doesn’t require a lot of materials or time can make something old feel like something new.

  2. More light and more life. If you’re looking to make a change that is a little more permanent, a new garden window installed in the kitchen is the perfect way to go. A garden window extrudes from your home, offering a space to put plants, flowers, decorative glass, and other decor. It will also bring a lot more light into your kitchen.

  3. Something practical. Replacement windows are a way to make the interior and exterior of your home more beautiful, but they’re also a practical upgrade. With new double or triple pane glass, you’ll keep more heat inside during the winter months, and more cool air inside during the summer. New windows are easier to clean on all levels of your home, even the top floor, and if you live in the city, you’ll really hear the difference new windows will make in noise reduction.

  4. Something flashy. The most cost-effective way to beautify a home is by adding a new entry door, but it is a change everyone will notice. Though a new front door retains its value and adds to your equity, what you’ll notice most is how that new door makes you feel every time you return home from work.

  5. A complete facelift. Adding new siding to a home is like buying a new house. Sure, you’ll immediately benefit from the energy savings and protection it will give your exterior walls, but this is an investment that will feel a whole lot bigger than what you paid for it.

The five-time Angie’s List Super Service Award Winning team here at Window Nation can help you find the best upgrade for your budget. Sign up today for a free, no-obligation, in-home, estimate. And, happy home improving!

Is your home still donning those old, huge, single or double pane windows?  If it does, it may be time for you to consider a change.  Those old windows usually fall into one of two categories:  either they are paper thin panes with gaps around the window putty that allow your heat to quickly and quietly escape or the cold, winter wind to whip inside your home as if there were no panes at all, or they have two panes with moisture and haze in between that makes you think it is a foggy day when, in fact, it is actually quite sunny!   Besides, those double pane windows that have broken down like that also allow heat to escape at a record pace.  Either way, if you have either of these old windows, you should consider replacing them.
 
The new technology in windows puts the old to shame. There are several options in this technology here at Window Nation. To name a few: We offer Extreme Low-E double pane glass which blocks up to 80% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays to protect your furnishings from the sun’s damage.  They are also filled with Argon gas to reduce heat transfer giving you great energy efficient savings.  You also have the option to add the tin-plated steel spacer system to add a stronger thermal barrier to even further reduce heat loss.   Our Solarban 70XL choice provides fade protection at a rate of 99.7%.  That is super fade resistant quality!  This choice is also filled with Argon gas to reduce heat transfer and save you on your energy costs; and it is considered by engineers to be the world’s toughest in accelerated aging and durability testing.  Our top choice for energy efficiency is the Ultimate Triple pane glass system.  This choice features insulating glass with 2 coatings of silver oxide on 2 panes of Low-E glass plus a third pane of Low-E glass.  This is the top choice for noise reduction, and has great fade protection plus we have Krypton gas between the insulated glass to make your home super energy efficient!
 
No matter what you are looking for in new replacement windows, we have an option for you that will rival all others in both style and quality.  Replacement windows will pay for themselves in no time as you keep more of your heat in your home and less escaping to heat the great outdoors.  New replacement windows just makes (dollars and) cents! Please contact our helpful and professional team here at Window Nation.  We specialize in customer service and customer satisfaction.

“Man. I’m glad my neighbors are so noisy,” said no one. Ever. Let’s face it, unless you’re part of the festivities going on in your neighbor’s backyard, you’re probably going to be irritated. You may enjoy rocking out to ACDC or hopping up and down as soon as the drop hits on your favorite dubstep song. But when you’re trying to relax after a long day or just about to put the baby down for a nap, noise from your neighbor’s yard can be an unwanted intrusion. Even loud talking or laughing has the potential to be frustrating. It all depends on the situation. And, noise can come in other forms as well. There is a reason why a group of crows is called a murder. When you have half a dozen crows squawking on the telephone lines near your bedroom window at six in the morning, I guarantee, murder is the first thing that comes to mind. Fortunately, there is help for unwanted noise, and it may actually surprise you.

The sounds coming from your neighbor’s house hit your exterior walls in waves. You’re probably thinking, “Pfffft. More like a tsunami.” But let’s stay focused. Those waves cause your exterior walls, windows and doors to vibrate and that sound is translated to the inside of your home. If you have vinyl siding and decent insulation, your walls will most likely block most vibrations attempting to pass through. It is usually windows and doors that let those noises in. I know! Plot twist!

When you invest in vinyl replacement windows for your home, you can reduce all the sounds that want to leak into your home and drive you crazy. And, while those windows are keeping the sounds out, they are keeping the heat in. New windows can easily pay for themselves, especially if you live in an area with sustained low temperatures through the winter, like Cleveland or Canton, Ohio.

If you’ve been dealing with drafty windows, let your irritating neighbors be the last straw. When you see your heat bills shrink you may just go over and thank them for being so rude and inconsiderate.

All kidding aside, most of us have pretty good neighbors. But, as a general rule, it is nice to have quality windows that seal out their occasional sounds of merriment. Not to mention other sounds, like traffic, jack hammers, beeping from construction vehicles backing up and the wildly inappropriate noise generated by gathering crows.

Call Window Nation for more information or stop by one of our window showrooms in Cleveland or Canton. Life is nicer when you subdue the noise level.

Everyone is opening up their houses! Yay it’s finally spring! Opening up the curtains and windows to let the light and fresh air in is a spring time must. Blow the winter out and let the spring air and warmth in. Time to brighten up your house with the sun, that warm celestial slice of joy that has been missing all these cold winter months. Are you not willing to open up your curtains because your windows are old and unsightly? Or, are they cracked or have moisture between the panes? These may be good indications that it’s time to replace them.

Window glass should be something that you don’t see. You should see the outside world and not the glass. Unfortunately window glass can become damaged and dirty as time goes on. If you have moisture stains and actual condensation between your glass panes than you windows are failing. Somewhere water and outside air are entering into the space between your window panes. These leaks in your window seals compromise the windows ability to be a good, insulated barrier between your house and the outside. This will certainly cause an increase in the dollars that you spend to keep you house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Not to mention it’s not attractive and it inhibits your view of the outside. If your glass is just dirty, then by all means it’s time to clean them! If cleaning doesn’t clear up the glass, and they still appear cloudy and chipped, then it’s time for a replacement.

When you pull back your curtains you should clearly see the outside and its glory. If you can’t see because of failing, or cloudy glass than your windows are not serving their purpose. If you don’t want to open up your curtains because of unsightly window frames and worn out hardware than it’s time to consider replacements. Windows are an intricate part of your home and home experience. Don’t let your home life be hindered by old and failing windows. Replace them with new windows from Window Nation. We are Ohio’s leading window replacement provider. With countless styles, colors and sizes we are sure to have one that will fit you budget and style!

Only 4 companies in the United States receive this honor each year, and this year Window Nation was one of them!

GLEN BURNIE, Md., April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Window Nation has been awarded a 2012 Replacement Contractor Service Excellence Award. The awards recognize home improvement companies for excellent customer service and were announced at the Replacement Contractor Executive Conference, an annual gathering of industry executives held this year in Las Vegas. The Replacement Contractor Service Excellence Award is based on surveys of customers by GuildQuality, a third-party verification service specializing in the residential construction industry and a partner with Replacement Contractor in presenting the award.

GuildQuality randomly sampled 50 recent customers of Window Nation, asking homeowners to rate the company on different aspects of service. The survey firm also asked homeowners to indicate whether or not they’d recommend the company to those they knew, or hire the company to work for them again.

“Giving great customer service is an important part of our community culture,” says Window Nation President and Co-Founder Harley Magden.

“Today, when just about any homeowner reads a company’s online reviews before picking up the phone, it’s critical to leave behind a customer who’s happy, even thrilled, with the work done and the experience of having it done,” says Jim Cory, Editor, Replacement Contractor.

Selection of the winners involved having homeowners rate companies on service aspects such as communication, the sales process, and product quality; identify any areas where company personnel fell short; and indicate whether or not they’d recommend the company to others. Winners were selected on the basis of overall scores, recommendation rate, and response rate to surveys.

Window Nation was founded by brothers Harley and Aaron Magden after they worked for years in their father’s window business. Headquartered in the Baltimore area, Window Nation operates in Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina and South Carolina.
