Windsor’s products are compatible with green building. They have examined the energy efficiency of their products and taken the lifecycle of each product into consideration. The more energy efficient their windows and doors are, the less energy needed to heat and cool people’s homes. The longer their products last, the fewer products that will need to be manufactured and less resources used. Windsor partners with vendors who also make a positive impact on the environment. All of the top vendors that Windsor has aligned with participate in extensive recycling programs and adhere to, or surpass, all local, state and national environmental regulations. Many are considered to be environmental leaders within their industry, manufacturing with recycled materials, receiving awards from organizations such as the DNR and acquiring FSC and SFI certification.
