Installer certification—windows, doors and skylights

Proper installation key to efficient fenestration

Hire a pro

Professional installers are the best people to put in fenestration products.

A poorly installed window, door or skylight may not work properly and could allow drafts, even if the product itself is energy efficient. Poor installation also may allow water to leak into the wall cavity, which could lead to costly damage.

If possible, choose a company that is in the Window Wise certification program. This quality assurance program trains installers to fit windows and doors correctly.

CSA also has a new initiative called the Fenestration Installation Technician (FIT) certification program.

Go with a professional and your fenestration products will prevent unwanted drafts, keep water at bay and operate as well as they should and as long as they should.
