West Des Moines, IA — Windsor Windows & Doors is joining millions of Americans in the spirit of helping others on the nationally recognized “Make a Difference Day,” October 28, 2006. Windsor will donate the windows for a Kernel Cottage, which will be given away to a family in need. The Kernel Cottage is an extension of the Katrina Cottage, which was designed specifically for Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a group of renowned architects designed Katrina Cottages as an alternative living solution to FEMA trailers. The cottages are small, but they are uniquely designed to utilize every cubic space in order to provide accommodations to which most people are accustom. Katrina Cottages are a safe, affordable home that families can take pride in for years.

The Katrina Cottages exclusively feature Windsor’s Legend Series, which is a cellular PVC window with the architectural accuracy and appearance of a traditional wood window. The design and durability of the Legend window makes it ideal for the Southeast region of the United States. Cellular PVC does not deteriorate or mold in coastal weather, which will help the cottages withstand future hurricanes. Additionally, the traditional look of the window completes the design objective to keep with architectural preference of the South.

“Windsor is the only window manufacturer in America that produces a window that is low-maintenance, long-lasting, and architecturally correct for this style of residence. When you have something you look at as much as windows, its just necessary to have it done right,” said Steve Mouzon, architect for Katrina Cottages.

Established in 1946, Windsor Windows & Doors markets Pinnacle wood windows and patio doors, Next Dimension vinyl windows and patio doors, and Legend cellular PVC windows. Windsor is owned by Woodgrain Millwork, which is the largest U.S.manufacturer of prefinished moldings and interior pine doors. Windsor now operates its divisional headquarters in West Des Moines, Iowa and has an additional manufacturing facility in Monroe, North Carolina.

In their total commitment to customers, Windsor Windows promises quality, service, responsiveness, and value. For more information, visit www.windsorwindows.com.
