Just in time for the cold winter months, a local company is holding a giveaway to help someone in need. Window World is replacing the windows of one deserving person. And they're doing it through our website ktsm.com.
"It was just kind of close to my heart to do something like this," said Window World owner Kevin Tubbs.
Tubbs is hoping to brighten the holidays for someone in need by giving them new windows for their home. "They're going to be our standard double-paned, fully insulated, fully meets all Texas code," said Kevin. "The actual frame is more than 3 quarter inches and most of your old style aluminum windows are only 2 and 5/8ths inches with a single-pane glass."
Kevin says he decided to do the giveaway to show his gratitude to the Borderland for supporting his business for the past three years and because he knows many homes have outdated windows. "The biggest issue, we see a lot of the old, old 1950s steel-casement windows, single pane glass. They can't open them or if they can, they can't get them closed. They're drafty and they totally leak energy out of the house. "
Window world is giving away up to 12 windows for the giveaway worth up to $4,000. And as the slogan goes, "We don't just stand behind our windows. We stand on them" and that's why these come with a lifetime warranty."
The windows will not only save energy but they also have some modern features. "One of the standard features of ours is this half screen so that you can actually slide the screen over to the opening part if you want or if there's some reason you want the air completely, you can have the air entirely," he said.
Kevin says window world tries to give back as much as it can... and the timing for this giveaway seemed just right. "This is the colder season here. You see the most benefit in January. It kind of ties in with the holiday giving spirit," said Kevin. "I'm glad to be able to be here. I'm glad to be able to do something like this. "
