Green Solutions and Practices
HARBROOK Fine Windows, Doors & Hardware chooses to work with vendors who are environmentally, socially and fiscally responsible in their business practices. Our manufacturers are chosen based on their artistry, quality and compatibility with our own company philosophy of maintaining high standards and strong ethics. We partner with businesses who, like ourselves, believe that small businesses serve their communities by providing high quality goods and services to their customers.
We provide our employees with fair wages and employee benefits, a healthy work environment, and a good quality of workday life. Harbrook’s roof now has a full array of solar roof panels, cutting our carbon emissions dramatically. We are currently exploring the installation of an electric charging station for vehicles.
In our day-to-day operations, Harbrook looks to green solutions. Harbrook recycles old materials where possible and began its green practices long before it was popular to do so. Harbrook has worked on LEED Certified projects and has recycled old sash and materials from renovation projects. Harbrook donates recycled old windows, doors, architectural hardware and ornamental building materials to the Historic Albany Foundation and Habitat For Humanity in Albany, New York, when possible.
