Universal Windows Direct: Cleveland’s Hometown Home Improvement Company

After working for several years in the home remodeling industry, childhood friends William Barr and Michael Strmac of Fairview Park, Ohio dreamed of starting a business of their own. They envisioned a home improvement company that offered high quality home improvement goods at the best market value available—a company that could grow strong and give back to the Cleveland area community that has supported them for so long. And in April 2002, that is exactly what they created.

Universal Windows Direct started from humble beginnings in one tiny retail location, and quickly grew to be one of the highest-rated national home improvement companies in the nation. Their success was more than good luck—it stemmed from their desire to treat their customers with respect. They offer only the highest quality products and services at or below market price along with some of the most energy efficient windows on the market.

Their trained staff works with customers to select the perfect windows, doors, vinyl siding, roofing and gutter protection to fit their budget and match their homes style and unique needs. They offer a huge selection of top rated products, superior installation services, and manage to keep costs affordable for every budget.

Despite their immense success, rapid growth and prestigious awards, Barr and Strmac never lost sight of their desire to give back. No matter how busy life keeps them, Universal Windows Direct always looks forward to donating time and money to charities such a Habitat for Humanity, Make a Wish Foundation and the Susan G. Koman Race for a Cure. In addition, each location nationwide is heavily involved in local charities that keep their individual communities strong. A charitable heart and customer satisfaction is the root of Universal Windows Direct, and keeps the whole company moving in the right direction.
