Three Companies—One Vision

Emerald City Energy is part of a family of brands—Intermountain Glass and McLendon Home Services— that bring efficiency to homes in the Puget Sound area. We have a central vision to deliver quality windows and doors that perform well and look great. We are focused on ensuring professional installation so that it’s done right the first time. With all that we do, we are also committed to excellence in customer service.

The Beginning

The story of these brands began many years ago with a group of coworkers, Chris Shults, Don Clayton, Andy Wigen, and Taylor Judd, who learned all about the efficiency factor in homes during their time working for Washington Natural Gas (WNG). Their time at WNG enabled them to learn all the aspects of energy-efficiency, the tenets of quality products, and a commitment to providing value and education to homeowners.

In the 1990s, WNG was sold to Puget Sound Energy, so the group went onto other endeavors, one of which was the formation of Emerald City Energy by Chris, while Don launched Intermountain Glass.

Andy and Taylor started McLendon Home Services as a window and door installer for McLendon Hardware stores.

The four stayed close, helping each other out with jobs. Taylor and Andy as McLendon Home Services handled installation of windows and doors for Emerald City Energy, which focused on helping homeowners in South King and Pierce counties. Intermountain Glass operated mainly in North King and Snohomish counties.

In 2012, Chris sold Emerald City Energy to Andy and Taylor. In 2017, Don retired and sold Intermountain Glass to Taylor and Andy.

Three Brands, All Rooted in Helping Others

Now, all three companies are one with 35 employees and growing. We are fortunate to have a knowledgeable staff, with many having 15 years or more of window and door experience, including some of the best installers in the state. We are glad to now serve the entire Puget Sound Area. While we’ve grown much since our humble beginnings, we stay rooted in the values of offering quality products, installed the right way, for a fair price.

Our dedication to service has allowed Emerald City to be an Angie’s List Super Service Award since 2006 with over 500 reviews on the site! We also hold an A+ BBB rating. What we’re most proud of is the thousands of happy clients we’ve been able to help during our many years in business.
