Introducing the Forever Window:
Open & Shut KC's Solution for Quality, Vinyl Window Systems

Open & Shut KC is a Kansas City window replacement company known for its dedication to craftsmanship, quality materials and excellent service. So when Pat Strand, Open & Shut KC’s owner, a veteran with over 20 years of experience, embarked on a mission to find a window that would redefine comfort, security, and efficiency for his customers, the quest was not just about adding a new product to the catalog—it was about fulfilling a promise of quality and reliability.

After rigorous research and exploring numerous options, the turning point came with the discovery of the Forever Window. This product stood out for its advanced features and aligned perfectly with the company's commitment to offering the best to Kansas City homeowners.

Why Forever Window Was the Chosen One

Strength and Longevity: The fusion-welded frame and sash of the Forever Window promised durability and minimal maintenance, crucial for busy homeowners.

Enhanced Security Features: The introduction of Cam Locks, reinforced for extra security, addressed growing concerns about home safety.

Practicality Meets Elegance:
The tilt-in lower sash (on double hung) for easy cleaning and the strong sill design provided a practical yet elegant solution.

Energy Efficiency: With rising energy costs, the LowE glass technology in the Forever Window offered an energy-efficient solution, keeping homes comfortable irrespective of the season.

At Open & Shut KC, we've always been committed to offering top-notch window services. Understanding that every customer has unique needs, we've diligently searched for a high-quality, vinyl window option. This allows us to cater to a wider range of customer preferences and requirements, ensuring that we continue to uphold our standards of delivering exceptional quality in every project.

The Forever Window is more than just a window product; it's the result of a dedicated search for something that truly meets the needs of Kansas City homeowners.
