can be difficult to distinguish one company from another. We thought it might be helpful to share a few of the things that set Weather Shield apart from the rest.
Continuous Innovation At Weather Shield, we never stop searching for ways to improve both our products and our processes. The goal of discovering
new and innovative solutions has always been part of our DNA. That’s why we have our own dedicated Research and Development Center and the largest onsite test lab in the industry. Not a day goes by
when we aren’t working on building a better product.
Best-In-Class Warranty At Weather Shield, we do more than talk about our dedication to craftsmanship and quality materials. We back our products
with a warranty against defects in material or workmanship for a period of 20 years, and against wood rot on all clad products for 30 years*. So you can be confident you’re getting an outstanding
product from a trustworthy company.

along with a myriad of exterior colors. We also offer some of the industry’s largest expanses
of glass for framing spectacular views. Whatever the style, whatever the size, nobody gives you more choices than Weather Shield.

use of energy efficient materials to drive performance where it matters most. We’re proud to offer an extensive number of beautifully designed ENERGY STAR® rated products.

technology and materials evolve. But our core values have never changed. Today, we remain dedicated to building long-term relationships and crafting innovative products that meet the needs of our
