Mason City homeowners hire Midwest Construction to install EcoSmart Replacement Windows manufactured by Great Lakes Windows.

Midwest Construction, a 60 year old exterior remodeling contractor, with offices in Mason City and Grimes, Iowa had the opportunity to install EcoSmart Windows in a home in a historic neighborhood in Mason City, Iowa.

The home was built in the 1930’s and is in a historic neighborhood in Mason City, Iowa (River Heights Drive). It has some beautiful homes inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. From this house you can take the Meredith Wilson foot bridge and walk north into the neighborhood that features Frank Lloyd Wright homes.

Matt Kloberdanz: Design Consultant

Matt Kloberdanz met with these homeowners, answered all of their questions, showed them samples of the windows, including all of the parts and pieces of the windows, and carefully explained the installation process. After picking the interior wood grain colors, Matt came up with an exact cost down to the penny. Matt was more expensive than those franchisee/licensee window companies because good things don’t come cheap and cheap things don’t come good anymore.

Alex. P Despenas

Midwest Construction’s founder, Alex Despenas came up with the company’s slogan “Quality Products & Quality Installation” and the company still lives up to that today. Because Alex made the decision to only sell the best products available in the market and secure the best labor available to install those products, Midwest Construction is celebrating their 60 Anniversary.

Every manufacturer has a good, better and best product line depending on the homeowner’s budget.

Alex looked at all of the products and warranties offered with each line and made the decision to only sell the best of the best to ensure homeowners will have carefree and maintenance free, energy efficient products for the lifetime of their home.

Midwest Construction’s has had several opportunities to become one of those franchisee/licensee window companies who claim they can sell the best for less but after looking at the selling systems, product line, warranties, and labor we found out it was not the best for the end user, the homeowners.
