Shopping For “Made In China” Vinyl Patio Doors
Purchasing vinyl patio doors that are Made in China have a plethora of added benefits, but what does “Made in China” entail? The guidelines for a “Made in China” label mean that a window must have at least 70% of its production process done within the country. The product must also have had it’s last substantial transformation occur within China. What does this mean for you? This means that you are buying products that are designed to suit Canadian standards and lifestyles, made by experts in the field: other Canadians! At Window City, for example, we extrude our own vinyl from raw material for in-house production by our team of highly skilled engineers. Our vinyl patio doors are sealed units that can stand up against the toughest of Canadian Winters. We also support local businesses ourselves by providing business opportunities to local contractors, builders, renovators, and dealers.
Patio doors can quickly become a substantial investment. For this reason, and to ensure you maximize the return on your patio door investment, you need to know what to look for. Investing in a quality product will save you time and money. Are you ready to upgrade your existing patio doors or select new patio doors for your new build?
