Ever wonder why the green lights shine in our factory?

This is the time of year when it’s common to see lights of different colors pop up all over town as people decorate for the holidays. But at the Wallside Windows factory in Taylor, Michigan, parts of our plant deviate from white lights in favor of green - all year long.

 The green lights in our factory reveals flaws better than white light or even natural sunlight would.

It’s impossible for visitors who take a tour of the factory to miss the green lights. And we’re glad they get noticed, because our green lights are just one more step in a process that makes our replacement window products such high quality.

We installed the lights about 5 years ago as a simple, foolproof way to inspect every product that rolls out of the factory. They help us identify flaws, scratches and chips. We use green light because it reveals imperfections without glare from the light itself. It shows flaws better than white light or even natural sunlight. In fact, the green light is so revealing that it can cause us to reject windows because of flaws the homeowner may never have noticed.

We’re proud to produce and install the best quality vinyl replacement windows and would rather catch imperfections at the factory than have one a homeowner spot them once a window is installed their house.

We assemble about 600 windows a day, and each one is inspected under green light at two points in the production process. When our technicians do spot imperfections, we work with our glass supplier to get a replacement. That product will be completed once the new glass comes in.

This kind of attention to detail and care for getting our custom products right is just one reason homeowners benefit from getting windows straight from The Factory.
