How It All Began
It all started decades ago with Troy Manning, a retired engineer from the television equipment industry, and his need for new windows.
Well, Troy got those new windows, but he also got more than he bargained for—a brand new business that would continue to grow into what you see today. Buying windows that day, Troy saw an opportunity in the market for his awesomeness to shine. Once workers came to install his window, it was a done deal. Watching them, he said, “I could do this.” And he knew he could make the entire experience better for his customers.
Not one to hesitate on a good idea, Troy Manning set aside $2k and said to his wife, “I’m going to start a windows business.” And he did.
So, what was the something-special Troy knew he could add to the window-buying experience? Respect, hard work, quality, fairness, and good, old-fashioned, treat-you-like-you’re-family friendliness.
