When it’s time to replace your windows and doors, install new siding, or upgrade the gutters, you have two choices: you can either buy from a big box retailer or you can support a local manufacturer. By choosing Potomac View Energy, you’re opting to support a local manufacturer and installer in Maryland.


Benefits of Shopping With Local Manufacturers

We create custom windows and doors, and all our products are made locally. Why is this so important? If you haven’t thought about the benefits of shopping at a locally owned business, consider what you and the community stand to gain:

  • Keep local dollars in the local economy: Shopping at chain stores does not bolster the community because the money you spend ends up far away. However, by shopping at businesses right here in our community, the money recycles back into the local economy. This helps build the funds necessary to keep our community alive and well.
  • Create more jobs: Communities with more job opportunities experience growth by attracting young, eager minds ready to contribute to the workforce. Plus, jobs created by local businesses tend to have better wages and benefits than chain stores are able to offer.
  • Encourage competition: A marketplace filled with diverse companies offering slightly different solutions helps keep prices low over the long term. Competition also spurs innovation so our community continues to grow and thrive.
  • Enjoy product diversity: If everyone bought their windows, doors, and siding from the same retailer, homes would lose their character. It’s the custom options from a local manufacturer that makes you home unique. It’s also what sets your house apart from others on the market if you ever decide to sell.
  • Experience customer-oriented service: There’s nothing personal about shopping with a big box retailer. These stores don’t have time to sit down with you and discuss what your real problems are. The best window replacement experience comes from a small business that offers customer-oriented service. This is only possible because local businesses don’t have thousands of different customers to shuttle in and out every day. To us, you’re not just a number; you’re a name and a face, an important customer we want to satisfy from start to finish.
