Facts vs. Myths: Should Windows for Colorado Homes Be Made in Colorado?

Fact or Myth: Replacement windows need to be made in Colorado to withstand the Denver climate.

This is a myth. The ability of windows to cope with the high altitude and temperature extremes of the Mile High City has nothing to do with where they’re made. Instead, it has everything to do with how they’re made. In other words, you don’t need to look for high-altitude windows if you’re getting high-quality windows to begin with.

Fact or Myth: Recycled vinyl windows don’t hold up well in high altitudes.

This is a fact. The environmentalist in you might make you feel inclined to purchase windows that contain recycled materials, but here in Denver, you need 100% pure virgin vinyl for the best results. This material has proven durability in any U.S. climate, including Colorado.

If you’re worried about environmental sustainability, remember that you can recycle vinyl windows at the end of their life cycle. The material can be melted down and remolded into different products, not just windows. Vinyl can be recycled many times, which is better for the earth than incinerating or tossing it in the landfill.

Fact or Myth: If durability doesn’t depend on manufacturing location, you should purchase windows made in other countries.

This is a misconception. Whether a window is manufactured high in the mountains or at sea level doesn’t impact its durability. However, this doesn’t mean you should instantly look to foreign manufacturers. There are still plenty of reasons to buy American-made windows:

  • Economics: When you buy windows made in the U.S., your money stays in the domestic economy. You also support jobs here at home to keep Americans employed.
  • Environmental concerns: The environmental regulations in some countries are less stringent when compared to those in the United States, meaning the window manufacturing process could be less eco-friendly overseas. Transporting goods internationally also requires a great deal of fuel, which generates harmful emissions.
  • Quality: The high standards of American manufacturing help to ensure your windows will be made to last.
  • Human rights: You can rest assured your windows weren’t made in sweatshops by child laborers when you purchase from a U.S.-based company.

Soft-Lite, the manufacturer for Zen Windows Denver, has been making high-quality replacement vinyl windows since 1934. This American company based in Streetsboro, Ohio, uses virgin vinyl for the best possible results in Colorado’s fluctuating climate.
