NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C., Aug. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Window World®, America's largest replacement window and home remodeling company, has announced its window products have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal for the seventh consecutive year. Window World is one of only three companies in all of the home improvement industry to offer Good Housekeeping Seal-backed windows.
For more than 100 years, the Good Housekeeping Research Institute has carefully evaluated products to provide consumers with insights on quality and performance. Any product that has earned the Seal is backed by Good Housekeeping's limited warranty, meaning if it is found to be defective within the first two years after purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace or repair the product or refund its purchase price. This warranty supplements Window World's own limited lifetime warranty, providing ample peace of mind for customers.
"It's our job to inform consumers of what products they can trust. The Seal is more than just a sign of confidence -- we put our money where our mouth is," stated Rachel Rothman, Technical Director of Good Housekeeping magazine. "In a recent study, 89% of consumers feel more comfortable buying a product they are unfamiliar with if it has the Seal and more likely to trust a product and its advertising if it displays the Seal. It's truly the gold standard of consumer logos."
Being granted the Good Housekeeping Seal for the seventh year in a row is the latest achievement in an already successful year for Window World. Earlier this summer, Window World received the ranking of "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Windows and Doors" from J.D. Power for the second consecutive year. Additionally, Window World has been ranked No. 1 Window Company in Qualified Remodeler magazine's annual Top 500 for seven consecutive years, as well as No. 1 Replacement Contractor by Remodeling Magazine in its Top 550 rankings for five years. Window World is a 2014 member of Remodeling Magazine Big 50 Class, distinguishing it as part of a group of remodeling and home improvement contracting companies recognized for their customer service, construction expertise and management innovation and excellence.
