CLEVELAND (August 17, 2016) – Window Nation, one of the country’s leading replacement window companies, is celebrating 10 years of business this summer. Over the past decade, Window Nation has grown to become the 6th largest home improvement and home remodeling company in the U.S., improving from its 9th place ranking just last year, according to the 2016 Remodeling 550 List, published by Remodeling Magazine. Founded in 2006 by brothers Aaron and Harley Magden, Window Nation has installed over 275,000 windows across northeast Ohio, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and northern Virginia.

From the start, Window Nation’s goal has been to guide homeowners in their search for the best solution for their home improvement needs – even if the best solution was going in a different direction. This desire to help others and put the customer first stems from the brother’s Midwestern roots.  

“Growing up in Cleveland, it was drilled into us daily the value of building relationships — in all aspects of our lives — and helping people. Especially with something as personal as someone’s home, where they raise their family. It’s not to be taken lightly,” said Harley Magden. 

As third generation window experts, the Magden brothers grew up learning the home improvement business from their father and grandfather.

“Most people grow up wanting to be a quarterback or astronaut. Not us. We knew as small kids what we wanted to do,” added Aaron Magden. “Literally growing up in windows, we quickly learned that everyone has a choice. And to earn someone’s business, you have to demonstrate that you deserve it. 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,” he added.

Over the past decade, their customer-centric approach and industry knowledge has earned them yearly accolades. In addition to improving to the 6th largest home improvement company, Window Nation was named Dealer of the Year for its use of social media to help best service customers by Window & Door Magazine in 2015, yearly recognition from Angie’s List for customer service excellence and being one of the top 10 window and door dealers in the U.S. by Door and Window Market.

Window Nation now employees 246 people throughout 8 offices across five states. Additionally, they have increased their revenue year after year, even during a down economy. Of their profits, the company gives back a generous portion of their sales year after year to help local charities, including providing school supplies for schools in need, Coats for Kids and more.

“We believe in doing well by doing good,” explains Harley Magden. “It’s no accident how we got here. We have worked very hard and have an amazing team that believes in our mission and our approach. As such, it’s only right to give back and help others. And as we continue to grow and celebrate more milestones, we’re going to continue to help the customers and communities we serve.”

There are a lot of great parks in Philadelphia, but at the end of the day, we still live in a city–which can sometimes feel like a concrete jungle. That is why a lot of Philly residents have had garden windows installed. These are windows that extend outside the walls of a home and offer a place for plants to live and flourish. If you’re considering a garden window for your home, here are some ideas to help you use that new space.
  • Let’s talk plants. Obviously, this is a good place for potted plants to grow, but you need to make sure you get the right plants. Some plants do well with a lot of sunlight and others do not. If you’re new garden window is on a side of your home that gets light all day long, you’re going to need to make sure your plants can handle that. If your garden window will be on a shaded side of your home, you can grow finicky plants that need a delicate balance of light and moisture, but it doesn’t matter what you decide to grow, plants add life to any room, and make the concrete jungle feel a little less–well–concretey.

  • There is something else you can do with all the light that a garden window will bring into your home: you can put glass items in that window space. Things like, glass figurines, twinkling crystals, an assortment of glass bottles, or some other collectible item. These sparkling treasures will add a magical quality when the noon day sun hits your new garden window just right.

  • Where there is sun coming in through glass, there is also heat. Your new garden window will be the perfect place to do something fun, like making a jar of sun tea. All you need to do is sanitize a jar, fill it with fresh water and some tea bags, and place the container in the direct sunlight for 2 – 5 hours. When it is done brewing, stick it in the fridge to chill. You get a tasty beverage and, if you put your tea in a pretty glass container, you also have a beautiful decoration in your window garden that glows a brilliant amber as it sits in the sunlight.

  • The space in your new garden window can also be used for just that–space. You can create a spot for soap, detergent, sponges, or other objects you use in your kitchen, and free up space on your counter tops.
