Friday Things - June 21, 2019


Here we are… June 21 and the longest day of the year after what feels like the longest week of the year. We are in full on summer mode here at Universal Windows Direct. Keep reading for a behind the scenes look at our week.

  • We finished a roof and siding job and then started another one. Here is the “before “ picture… can’t wait to see the after because that is ALWAYS the best part.

  • We had 5 different install crews out this week. Gutters, gutter topper, windows, patio doors, siding and roofing were all replaced this week for families throughout the Twin Cities.

  • We are still hiring another window install crew. 2-4 days a week would be awesome.

  • Of course, weekends aren’t really weekends in this business in the summertime. Andre and Kasey are both prepped and ready to work shows tomorrow afternoon. Andre will be at Earle Brown Days in Brooklyn Park and Kasey will be representing to the right of the inflatables at Dan Patch Days in Savage.

  • Our past customer newsletters have all been mailed! Each time we mail them they seem to take longer and longer. We are definitely going to find an easier way for the next mailing!

  • Our Meet the Staff page on our website is completed! Check it out to read a quick bio on the core 4 (Steve, Melissa, Kasey and Andre).

  • Melissa was in studio recording our new radio spots on Wednesday. We love how they turned out!

  • We had our final meeting today with KARE 11 to go over our TV commercial. The plan is to shoot mid-July and start airing after that. We may be totally biased, but the ad is going to be great!

On the personal side, Tessie finished 1st grade and now we are in the throes of summer scheduling. This week she attended Camp Invention.. which is completely amazing and not just because it was 5 full days. Next week she has half day Vacation Bible School, teenage babysitters, a pool play date with a friend, a day in the office, and then a full day at a friends.

This weekend we celebrate some family milestones. Our oldest nephew graduated from high school and his open house is tomorrow and then our youngest niece turns one and we are celebrating her birthday on Sunday.

This is how it is. We work hard all week to make sure the most important things are taken care of and then the next week we start all over again. Thanks so much for pulling back the curtain to learn about our week. See ya next time!
