Window Companies: Should You Go Local or National?

Deciding which window brand is the best is one of the many obstacles you’ll encounter when planning a windows installation project. There are hundreds of companies making windows for houses, and it’s tough deciding which one when both local and national companies offer great products.


In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta shares the pros and cons of going local or national, and how we can offer you the benefits of both.

Going National

National companies offer window brands that are well-known and have been used for many years. The history of the brand itself may not always be positive, but there’s that quality of transparency in choosing a national brand since you can look up their well-document chronicle.

National brands are also often partnered with well-known manufacturers and can usually offer top-of-the-line products – whether they are casement or double hung windows.

Going Local

Local brands may have a smaller range, but this often works to their advantage since they are more aware of what’s going on at the local level. This ‘local knowledge’ is highly sought after as it includes valuable information such as knowledge of the local weather conditions and climate.

There are some disadvantages to working with a local window company, especially if they are relatively new. Companies with less than 10 years of experience are not well documented and they may not have experienced the same ups and downs as a national and well-established brand. 

What Makes Us Different

At Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta, we offer the best of both worlds. Our company operates at the local level and our team of installers are well-versed with the local weather and climate of Atlanta. Yet, we offer a national brand with our Andersen Windows & Doors, bolstering our local knowledge with a brand that’s in business for over a century.
