I just recently finished a three hour course with the Pella Window and Door Corporation in Northern Kentucky. Wow! Sounds exciting, does it not? Well to me it was worth the time and effort. Learning something new is always exciting! One of our passions as a contractor is continued education and staying on top of the latest trends, technology, business practices and construction science.
This week I came across this quote from Henry Ford and it gave me renewed passion for learning.
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. Henry Ford
So there you have it, learning about Pella Windows really is keeping me young! Of course, my drive to learn has nothing to do with age. My passion for learning comes from a desire to be equipped to better serve my clients and do my part in increasing the professionalism our industry.
Here are 5 things I learned at the Pella class that I want to share with you.
- Pella has been in business since 1925. I didn’t realize this fact. It says something about a company that has been around for nearly a 100 years.
- All Pella vinyl and fiberglass products are made in Kentucky. Nice to support a company that helps fuel our local economy.
- Pella’s sliding patio doors are the most energy efficient doors they sell. You may be as surprised as I was when hearing this info. For years sliding doors have had a negative stigma attached to them.
- The 350 vinyl series window is fairly new. In my opinion they have one of the best seams welds in the industry, it’s nearly invisible. Profile of the window sash matches profile of wood windows and has a triple glaze option available. I’m excited to be able to sell this product.
- Multi–point door locks help with energy efficiency, keep the doors aligned longer and adds a higher level of security to the door.
