The story that hides behind American Vision Windows is about Kathleen and Bill, husband and wife, who wanted to change windows on their house, because they noticed that difference between upstairs and downstairs vary around 20 degrees.

Kathleen educated herself and started researching about windows installers, companies that do window sales and installation, about different types of windows, etc.

It was a long process. Bill and Kathleen met so much people, salesman and installers. Some of them were promising things they didn’t do, or didn’t want to do, or they got what they didn’t expect and didn’t want to. It was such unfortunate experience.
