Approximately 70% to 80% of Americans prefer to buy products made in the USA, but many aren’t willing to pay an exorbitant price just to make sure they purchase only home-grown consumer goods. Renewal by Andersen of Long Island proudly offers a full line of affordable, custom-crafted replacement windows and patio doors made in the United S#1. tates. And, we work hard to help homeowners on a tight budget plan their home renovation, so they get the quality they expect from our brand, on financial terms they can live with.
Our Long Island neighbors who look for “Made In The USA” labels, may be interested to know how our brand measures up to their personal standards compared to buying products fully, or partially, constructed in another country.
Below are three Renewal by Andersen standards that most Buy American consumers look for when comparing home improvement products.
#1. Strong Environmental Stewardship Policies
Renewal by Andersen factories follow EPA guidelines that ensure clean processes that promote a healthy earth. We use a cradle to grave sustainability formula that demands we go above and beyond the minimum standards. For example, our patented Fibrex composite window frames utilizes wood reclaimed from the factory blended with low-maintenance vinyl, resulting in fewer trees harvested to service our customers.
Superior craftsmanship means our windows are durable, performing perfectly for decades, resulting in fewer discarded home windows that find their way to a local landfill. And, our logistics team continuously monitors the shipping cycle to make sure we use fuel efficiently, keeping our carbon footprint as small as possible. Whether you choose double-hung, casements or bay window configurations, you can rest assured our team takes environmental stewardship seriously.
#2. Economic Stability Indicators
While off-shoring manufacturing allows some brands to offer deeply-discounted products, typically purchased off-the-shelf from a big-box or privately owned stores, lower prices achieved by using cheap labor in other countries comes with a bigger price tag than many people realize. When large percentages of manufacturing entities depend on overseas workers for inventory, fewer US citizens have jobs, which negatively impacts our national economy. Lower wages lead to smaller discretionary budgets, which curtails consumer spending, resulting in people cutting back on buying things that aren’t essential.
We understand it is important to support economic stability. Our parent company, Andersen Windows, operates a massive production plant in Bayport, Minnesota that sprawls across 65 acres, and includes a 2.8 million square foot facility. Over 100 local Renewal by Anderesen locations provide thousands of jobs that support thousands of families across the US. And, the money flows into regional and local neighborhoods in New York and other states giving homeowners like you access to modern, energy efficient replacement windows and patio doors.
#3. Fair Labor & Workplace Safety Benchmarks
Buying any American-made product should be a choice that supports fair labor laws and human rights. This isn’t the case in many countries around the world. When you choose to buy replacement windows and/or patio doors built at our Bayport facility, you know every worker from the customer service desk to the custodial staff and from the factory floor to the local showroom enjoy safe working conditions and a reasonable wage for their efforts. Every facility complies with all occupancy, fire and safety standards – at both state and federal levels.
