Why You Should Support American-Made Products

Since the 1990s, many American factories have relocated to countries where labor costs less. However, the Reshoring Initiative says over 300 companies have moved their production back to the U.S. since 2019, creating around 240,000 more jobs. “Made in the USA” products are slowly making their way back into the market.

Here are reasons supporting American-made products are important from your local window replacement expert, Renewal by Andersen® of Spokane.

More Jobs 

Choosing American-made products can open up jobs in the country. According to a 2015 Economic Policy Institute report, between 1998 to 2013, the U.S. lost 5.7 million manufacturing jobs. The more income local businesses get, the more money will be placed into manufacturing locally-made products. Higher demand for American-made products means more people are needed to produce them.

Better for the Environment 

Foreign products contain more carbon footprint. They have to be shipped across the ocean to get to America, which burns more fossil fuel and emits greenhouse gasses. A lot of factories that manufacture products for the U.S. produce massive amounts of toxic chemicals that affect the air, water, and soil.

One of your leading window contractors, Renewal by Andersen offers some of the most energy-efficient and eco-friendly window and door options. Our unique Fibrex® material contains 40 percent wood fiber by weight and 60 percent proprietary polymer. The wood used to produce our windows is recycled and combined with a liquefied polymer.

Guaranteed Quality 

Superior quality and excellent craftsmanship come to mind when you hear the term “Made in the USA.” You can’t be sure about the quality and longevity of the products that are produced overseas. Compared to foreign products, American goods have a lower cost per use and last significantly longer.

Reviews

"Two windows were replaced in my home on Oct 25th by Shawn & Josh. Not only did they do an exceptional installation job, but they had to fix the botched job of the original installer. The finished product is awesome. Thank you Shawn & Josh for your expertise, your professionalism, and your courteous demeanor."
