Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day!

September 02, 2013

Summer is nearly over and Labor Day is finally here. Labor Day is a day to celebrate the contributions of American workers. It is also the last chance to take a long weekend and enjoy the end of summer. Before the holiday weekend celebration starts, let’s take a minute to learn more about the history of Labor Day.

Interestingly, no one actually knows who founded Labor Day. Despite these ambiguous origins, in 1887 Oregon was the first state to declare Labor Day a holiday. In 1894, after the deaths of many workers during the Pullman Strike, it became a federal holiday celebrated by thirty states.

In its early days, Americans celebrated Labor Day with public speeches, picnics and a great deal of cigars and beer. Labor Day is celebrated in a similar fashion today, with many cities and towns across the United States hosting themed parades, picnics, barbecues, fireworks and other such gatherings. Labor Day has also come to signify the end of summer and the start of the back-to-school season.

This Labor Day, see what your city or town has planned to celebrate this historic holiday. For more information on how to use this long weekend to replace your windows before winter, visit Renewal by Andersen or call us at 1-800-595-1967. Enjoy your long weekend!

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
