WHAT IS WINDOW DEPOT USA?
Quite simply…we’re a home improvement franchise, without the franchise. You could also say that we’re a Replacement Window Business Opportunity. Our network of independently owned and operated business partners have banded together to leverage our knowledge, buying power and marketing scale.
To you: We are an official licensing program, which means that all of our dealers are licensed to utilize our brand, and to access our vast support services. ENTREPRENEURS: This is your opportunity to start your very own replacement window business, with help from the ground up. REMODELERS: This is your opportunity to add a quality product and world-class support to your organization.
To the world: We are the 24th Largest Home Improvement company in America.
“I wanted to add replacement windows to my successful gutter business, and Window Depot USA gave me the support, training and product line I needed to create my new division.”
“The first time I attended the national conference, I knew this network was destined for greatness. The exchange of ideas has really helped me grow my business.”
The right Products for your Market
Becoming a Window Depot USA dealer means access to high quality products, at nationally negotiated prices. Our motto of "National Strength, Local Service" isn't just a catch phrase. Imagine being able to offer homeowners in your area the very best value available, because of your acquisition price. Learn more about our products.
The right PARTNERSHIP Approach
Window Depot USA is an official Licensing Program. What does that mean? It means that unlike a franchise, we don't charge huge up front fees, and we don't take a portion of your company profits. Instead, we act as a buying co-op...allowing you to put more money into your marketing, sales and bottom line. Learn more about our Approach.
“Being part of the Window Depot network for the last 6 years has been invaluable. Whether it’s the marketing department or the corporate office acting as a liaison with our manufacturers, we can always count on them.”
“Window Depot USA has been a wonderful company to partner with. Their buisness plan is very simple but very effective. Plus their support system has helped me grow my company in ways I could not have done alone!”
The right Plan to GROW your Business
Our market philosophy is simple: Provide more VALUE than any other company in the marketplace. How? By delivering high quality products, at prices that are fair and reasonable. Window Depot USA is NOT a low-price advertiser (often a bait and switch). Window Depot USA is NOT a company that believes in getting "all we can get" on every sale (like some national brands). Instead, we're selling at prices that are fair to the homeowner, but allow our dealers to build a profitable, sustainable and sellable organization.

Hi, my name is Ed Kalaher, and I want to thank you for taking just a few minutes to learn more about Window Depot USA. We’ve launched this website to answer the most common questions we receive about our program. But I also want to tell you a bit about our philosophy.
Window Depot USA is more than just a network, or a buying group…it’s an organization made up of individual contractors and entrepreneurs that want to band together and build something special. We believe in serving homeowners, providing more value than any company in the marketplace, and creating businesses that are long term assets.
We have a team dedicated to helping you, every day, in the areas of marketing, sales, design, Internet technologies, customer service, finance and more.
My purpose…is to help you build a better business. My purpose is to help you become a better leader. My purpose is to help you build wealth. My purpose, and my passion, is to help you find fulfillment by leveraging your replacement window business to serve others.
I truly believe that we have constructed the very finest replacement window dealership program available, anywhere…and at any time in the history of this industry. Bold Claim? Perhaps… But I’d LOVE to have that conversation with you (and I welcome the debate). 🙂
