Thanks EWF, trying to convince a contractor may be difficult but money does talk. About 8 yrs ago I worked on a Govt. base building duplex housing for the military and a plumber tried to sneak in cooper pipe stamped, "made in usa" it was usa MEXICO! He was bootd from the job. I do my best to buy locally, when I purchased replacement windows I went with a company close to home and the windows were made in a neighboring state
and excellent quality I might add. A comparable window (15 windows) at The Home Despro was cheaper by about 500.00 bucks but they would not tell me where they were made. I would have stayed local anyway because the guy I bought them from would bring his family and friends into the restaurant I worked at, and the customer service was A1. Win, win!
Thanks for the read.
