As we get started with our Polaris windows reviews we can take a look at the ownership of Polaris windows. Modern Builders Supply is a family run building products distributor based out of Toledo, OH. They have several branches in Ohio and the surrounding states, but compared to the nationwide distributors they’re a pretty small operation.
Being a smaller family owned company certainly isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but if you’ve been reading through our reviews you probably know by now that we tend to like window companies that have some real financial backing. The manufacturing and distribution businesses necessitate relatively high fixed costs and that can be difficult for a smaller company to manage in tough times.
We have heard from folks that Polaris windows can sometimes come with the the of long drawn-out sales pitch that we discuss in our section on common window sales tactics. This is 100% defendant on the local company that is offering the windows, but if you get this kind of pitch don’t think that Polaris windows are the greatest things since sliced bread. They’re fine windows, but not remarkable.
We’ll be writing Polaris windows reviews on the following models:
As you can probably tell by the names, UltraWeld is their “high end” offering (read high priced offering) and ValuSmart is their low priced option.
