Serious Materials to buy Republic Windows

Thanks to Jonathan Sweet (The Sweet Spot Remodeling Blog) at HousingZone.com, 
Serious Materials, makers of ThermaProof Windows and EcoRock is awaiting the final OK to purchase Republic Windows and Doors. Republic was in the news last November, when the Chicago plant was closed suddenly, throwing many people out of work. The workers staged a sit-in to rally the public's interest. My previous blog entry discussed their green products and their sustainable philosophy. If the purchase goes forward and they manufacture their 
ThermaProof windows in the Chicago area that will be great news for both the employees of Republic and Green builders in the midwest.
