A cut above the rest!
Since their inception over 57 years ago, Fleetwood’s focus has always been to manufacture modern style doors and windows for elite luxury homes. Through forging an allegiance to architectural integrity, a deliberate, passionate, and meticulous refinement of, “the little things,” Fleetwood has elevated themselves as the specialist in this niche market.
Through a philosophy of excellence in design and manufacturing, good is not good enough. Fleetwood’s attention to detail, design and quality is akin to what is found in fine furniture.
Driven by quality rather than profits is a value that can be seen, felt and lived when you encounter a Fleetwood window or door. They proudly build the American dream of success with gratitude to God, a culture of honest hard work and the relentless pursuit to build it better rather than faster.
