“In 1966, I started my journey as an apprentice carpenter at Billy Homes and Additions and graduated as a journeyman carpenter after serving a rigorous four-year apprenticeship,” says Fred “Freddie” Mekled, president of Thermal Shield Windows and Siding in Waterford. Inspired by this experience to start his own business, Freddie decided to focus on the installation and repair of windows and siding.
While building Thermal Shield Windows and Siding, Freddie worked for Ford Motor Company for 13 years as a carpenter. As his own business grew, Freddie stepped down from his position at Ford and opened a showroom, turning what started as a home-based business into a full-fledged company.
Today, says Freddie, “Thermal Shield Windows and Siding is proud to be one of the leading providers of high-quality home improvement products. Our commitment to precision and unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction have allowed us to build a reputation that we are truly proud of.”
Thermal Shield Windows and Siding offers windows, siding, patio doors, bays and bows, garden windows, roofing, and more. “We take pride in being a full-service crew,” notes Freddie. “We handle every aspect of your home project installation, from start to finish.”
“With summer fast approaching,” continues Freddie, “homeowners are gearing up for backyard barbecues, pool parties, and other outdoor activities. We believe that investing in high-quality home improvement will not only improve the overall look of your home, but also enhance your enjoyment of it this summer. When your home looks great, it feels great!”
