Average temperatures in White Bear Lake, Minnesota range from -6 degrees Fahrenheit to 106. It isn’t difficult to calculate the beneficial cost of installing new windows and doors against the price of keeping a heater or air conditioning unit running year round, just to take the edge off.
Dan and Jackie Gagan are no strangers to the highs and lows of a Minnesota season, and have taken their weather expertise straight to the market with Shamrock Windows and Doors. In 1986, Dan began in the business sweeping the shop floor of a wood window and door company. Quickly progressing to building the doors and windows which led him to the field, where he began installing them himself. “I started my own business because I felt we could do it better.”
Escaping to the milder California climate 31 years ago, Dan and Jackie have built their business on the firm belief that they are giving customers the best quality service and products, “in today’s technological market.” Being comfortable in one’s home is tantamount to their customer service guarantee: “we want to make sure our customer is happy. We have a 93% referral rate, and repeat customer base.”
Carrying both a glazing and a general contracting license, Shamrock is also unique in that they do not need to subcontract jobs out. “Our installers are all company employees: and we back the work all our people perform,” says Dan. With experience of more than 32 years, and an installation crew boss with more than 18 years of knowledge backing his own work, Dan and Jackie Gagan have an immense amount of pride in their team. At times, with specific jobs, they call on a structural engineer to ensure that expansions of openings do not compromise the stability of the home during an earthquake. But as general contractors, “we’re licensed to perform changes in window or door size, and location.”
With everything from single hung windows to casement or bay windows, Shamrock has the frame you’re looking for, to match the style and price you want. Don’t know much about materials? Their team of industry professionals can help you sort out the differences between wood, fiberglass, vinyl, and aluminum. Some require more upkeep - some are simply more efficient at enabling ventilation during inclement weather. Regardless of the conditions you’re facing: be it -6 or balmy 75 degrees, replacing old windows and doors can provide extra savings in your pocket and a high level of comfort in your home.
