Universal Windows Direct began with the hard work of two childhood friends eager to get into business for themselves after years in the home remodeling industry. Founders William Barr & Michael Strmac established Universal Windows Direct in April 2002 as a retail location with the goal of providing the highest quality home remodeling products to the homeowner at the absolute best market value possible. From humble beginnings to one of the largest home improvement companies in the country, Universal Windows Direct is an American success story.
For Universal Windows Direct, this idea of social responsibility stands an integral part of our existence as a company. Since the early days of Universal Windows Direct, co-founders, William Barr III and Michael Strmac have placed great importance on giving back to the community that has given them so much.
