There are a number of things to keep in mind when installing a window or door. The following list is general in nature but very relevant to most installations:

  • MUST be plumb and square
  • MUST be insulated properly
  • MUST be foam sealed or other moisture barrier around the opening
  • MUST be shimmed correctly to avoid shifting or settling
  • MUST be flashed properly to avoid leaks
  • MUST be sealed at the joints with a professional quality sealant
