Wed, Jul 25, 2012 WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Five featured homes at the HomeShowExpo 2012, including the model home voted Best of Show, showcase windows and doors supplied by Windsor Windows & Doors.

HomeShowExpo 2012 runs for 10 days in July at the Otter Creek Development in Ankeny, Iowa. Twelve homes by 10 metro-area builders are on view at the event, presented annually by The Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines to provide a public showing of the latest trends and products in the home building industry.

Four participating builders specified products from two lines by Windsor Windows & Doors to install in five of the newly constructed homes featured in this year’s expo. Builders take great pride in presenting products that will make a lasting impression for those who experience the show, according to association organizers.

The five HomeShowExpo 2012 homes by four builders that incorporate two Windsor product lines are:
  • #4 – Drake Homes – Windsor Pinnacle Clad
  • #6 – Classic Builders – Windsor Pinnacle Clad
  • #9 – Timber Ridge Homes – Windsor Next Dimension Signature
  • #11 – Classic Builders – Windsor Next Dimension Signature
  • #12 – Jerry’s Homes – Windsor Next Dimension Signature
Model home #9, featuring Windsor Next Dimension Signature vinyl windows and doors, was voted this year’s Best of Show by association members at a preview event the evening before the expo’s public opening.

Windsor Next Dimension Signature vinyl windows and doors offer the ideal combination of low maintenance and high performance. This line also offers many choices of shapes and sizes for true customization of homes, in addition to a lifetime limited warranty, commercially rated performance, smooth operation and convenience for today’s busy lifestyles.

Windsor Pinnacle Clad products present beauty, style and strength in their combination of fine wood species, extensive cladding color options, and wide offering of sizes and special shapes. This vast array of options enables the design and construction community to maximize the customization of residential and light commercial projects.

Windsor Windows & Doors is proud to be a supplier in so many of the featured model homes, said Cathy Leonard of Marketing Communications. “Windsor would like to thank these builders for selecting these products,” she said, “and thank our local distributor, Gilcrest/Jewett Lumber Company, for coordinating these outstanding projects.”

Despite extreme heat, more than 8,000 visitors attended the HomeShowExpo 2012 in the first two weekends of the show. More comfortable temperatures are forecast for the final weekend, today through Sunday.
