Since 1954, General Aluminum has not only been a leading manufacturer of high quality, residential windows and patio doors, our company has been a leading innovator in the field as well.
By precisely anticipating the increasing environmental/energy concerns of the public—and the corresponding new energy codes—we have consistently been first to design, build and market high performance, yet reasonably-priced, attractive products that meet those requirements. Our revolutionary, insulating SPACEGLASS®, first introduced to the residential market in the early sixties, has resulted in significant energy cost savings for hundreds of thousands of homeowners, from Florida to California, and, over the years, has helped conserve vast amounts of our country's natural resources.
In addition to continually developing ways to improve vinyl replacement windows and patio door performance, we have always manufactured our products with precision craftsmanship and high quality materials. For instance, all of our insulated glass is "A" rated—the uppermost level of quality available in insulated glass. In fact, all window component materials are selected for high performance characteristics and long-lasting durability.
We're also known for offering a vast array of styles and sizes, in a selection of colors—so, no matter what your favorite architectural style is, we've got the windows to make your home look extraordinary. And if the windows you envision aren't included in our regular product line, our Custom Window Department will make them for you.
At General Aluminum, attention to detail makes a big difference. If you prefer divided lites in your windows, our 3/4" muntins make our windows noticeably more attractive than competitors' windows with skinny 1/2" muntins. All of our windows are tested against forced entry under strict conditions.
You can also count on your General Aluminum Windows and Patio Doors to provide years and years of smooth operation and trouble-free performance. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing process and our industry-leading warranties ensure that "fogging" between the panes of glass will not be a problem.
General Aluminum is also renowned for addressing specific market needs, such as those of Florida where the devastation of Hurricane Andrew resulted in the implementation of more stringent building codes. We manufacture both aluminum and vinyl windows designed to meet or exceed those new codes.
At General Aluminum, we place utmost emphasis on innovation, high quality, customer service and on-time nationwide delivery. If you came to our 300,000 square foot manufacturing and sales facilities in Carrollton, Texas, just outside of Dallas, you'd see our commitment in action as over 700 employees extrude the aluminum, assemble the Windows and doors by hand, and operate a fleet of company-owned tractor/trailers that dependably deliver orders with short lead times.
For our customers, the vision of General Aluminum and the products we make all add up to one thing—the best views in America!
General Aluminum Windows and Patio Doors are manufactured not only to meet the uppermost requirements of quality and performance, but to set them. From developing innovations that lead the way in increasing energy efficiency to using 3/4” muntins that make our windows noticably more attractive than competitors’ with 1/2” muntins, we strive to make the best products you could possibly install in your home.
