Importing windows from Poland to the States ensures that you are buying a product of the higher quality

Importing Polish fenestration to the States pays off for any type of window, but the most profitable choice will be aluminum or woodwork. You are paying for a top-quality product, which can be up to 40% cheaper compared to the US market. Windows from Poland provide:

  • better thermal performance
  • longer service life,

The latest European technologies (German components and machinery) are used to produce the windows. The process is automated and conducted by skilled professionals. The result? You get a top-shelf product at a much lower price.

Windows from Poland are up to 40% cheaper than American ones

Replacing American single or double sash windows with windows from Poland will allow you to reduce the price by up to 40% – this will be the case with aluminum systems. Remember: the final product that will also be of incomparably better quality than windows from the American market.

The most cost-effective models are slide and PVC and aluminum profiles that open inward, but buying exclusive slide windows from Poland is also a very safe option.

European windows are technologically more advanced than American systems

You may have to convince your customer to replace the American system with a European one. Use your marketing sense and persuade them to switch from an archaic solution to one that uses the latest developments in fenestration.

Knowing the advantages of windows from Poland, which we described above, you should not have much problem with it. Single and double sash windows:

  • are at least three times more expensive than European systems,
  • are easier to damage,
  • hold heat less well

The differences are in favor of the European systems. Surely the quality of products from Poland and Europe will satisfy even the most picky customer in terms of price and lifespan.

Why should you direct your installer to us?

The prices of windows imported from Poland are the value of the products themselves. You will need to arrange the installation on your own. Your installer will be responsible for the entire process, from measuring the openings to installing the windows.

Before you place an order, talk to them and then put them in touch with us. We will provide them with valuable instructions so that they will be able to install the windows themselves. You can find a sample of such materials in this playlist on debesto’s YT channel.

When importing is profitable?

The threshold for a profitable order is a minimum of $5000. However, the sum is contractual, as it depends largely on the price of shipping, which ranges from $2000 to $8000. This is the only disadvantage associated with importing windows from Poland to the USA. The estimated cost of shipping by container, including labor, is about $4000.

There are two ways to make transportation as cost-effective as possible:

  • order a full container – this way, you will not pay for the empty space in the container (for instance, 40 ft container can hold 100 windows of size 200 x 200 cm)
  • think about the type of goods, if you order wooden or aluminum windows, the price of transportation will be similar, but it will have much less impact on the cost of import
