Window World of the Triad is locally owned and operated by Darren and Michelle Kennelly. North Wilkesboro natives, the Kennellys have been involved with Window World from the very beginning, contributing to its growth from a small Wilmington, NC window retailer in 1995 to the nation's largest exterior home improvement retailer by 2007.
In 1998 the Kennellys partnered with Todd and Tammy Whitworth (eventual CEO of Window World, Inc.®) to open Window World of the Triad, the 3rd store in the Window World network. In 2000 they expanded, opening a showroom in Greensboro, NC. Now serving Forsyth, Davidson, Davie, Guilford, Rowan, Stokes, Alamance, and Rockingham counties, Window World of the Triad has proudly become one of the largest home improvement resources in the region.
Window World of the Triad is heavily involved in Window World's charitable foundation, Window World Cares. Locally, it has worked to fundraise for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through event sponsorship and gathering in-home donations. In addition to its emphasis on philanthropy, the store is a perennial recipient of the prestigious Top 10 Award for its market size, meaning it is one of the top Window World stores of its size nationwide.

EPA Lead Certified Firm
Window World of the Triad is a proud Lead-Certified Firm.
Maintaining our Lead Certification means we are trained and regularly undertake the necessary precautions to protect our customers from the potentially harmful effects of lead. During our installation process, we take special care to ensure we contain any lead dust created, protecting our customers and the environment. Lead, which has been linked to health and environmental issues, is a heavy metal long used in the manufacturing of paint, plumbing pipes, and leaded gasoline, and can still be found in many homes built prior to 1978. By following lead-safe work practices, we mitigate the risk of lead exposure associated with disturbing remnants of lead-based paint/products.

Window World offers a variety of window and door packages that are ENERGY STAR qualified in each of the nation's four climate zones.
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association is recognized internationally for the development of standards that provide third-party validation of product performance and quality. Because Window World Windows are certified for structural, air, and water performance, they bear the prestigious AAMA Gold Label, the highest possible AAMA rating. The Gold Label indicates not only that the individual parts and pieces of the window are certified, but that the entire window system is of the highest quality.
The National Fenestration Rating Council establishes test criteria that set the standard for performance ratings of window and door products. These consistent ratings provide accurate information on the energy performance of windows, doors, and skylights. The presence of these ratings allows products across the industry to be compared on an unbiased basis.
ASTM International, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, is the globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of voluntary consensus standards.

At Window World, we believe our work goes farther than providing exterior solutions. Our products alone aren't what make us unique; much of Window World's story is linked to our involvement beyond home improvement. We strive to bring positive change to our communities through our affiliation with non-profit entities.
Window World Cares
Window World Cares® is the charitable arm of Window World Inc.® Founded in 2008, the foundation exists to benefit children and families at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We are proud of the impact Window World Cares has made in the few years since its conception: we've raised millions of dollars for our causes and spread the word about deserving causes. We were recognized by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® as the "New Corporate Partner of the Year" in 2010, and intend to live up to this honor for years to come. Window World Cares is a core part of what we do every day; it's our privilege to work towards making a difference with every window we sell.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
In 2008, Window World Cares® became a partner of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, one of the world's leading research and treatment centers for pediatric cancer and other childhood diseases. The hospital is a pioneer of protocols for treatment of these conditions: in the 50 plus years since St. Jude was founded, it has helped to increase the survival rate for ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, one of the most common forms of childhood cancer) from 4% to 94%. St. Jude never considers a family's ability to pay for a child's treatment, covering the costs of medical care, lodging, meals, and travel to and from the hospital. Our Chairman, Tammy Whitworth says of the partnership: "Giving back and helping others in need has always been a big part of the Window World culture, but it's the remarkable employees and children of St. Jude who make us so passionate about this organization."
Veterans Airlift Command
Window World proudly supports the Veterans Airlift Command in providing air transportation to wounded warriors and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes. The Veterans Airlift Command offers soldiers returning from combat, often with devastating injuries and unable to traverse commercial airports, the opportunity to fly worry-free to visit their families or receive treatment. We've flown over 55 missions since our partnership began, and every time we meet a new Veteran, we become even more passionate about the Veterans Airlift Command. With a number of Veterans in our own Window World family, we know how meaningful a simple "Thank You" can be. Participating in the mission of the Veterans Airlift Command is how we convey our immense gratitude for every Veteran's service.
