BuildEx Construction, a leading window replacement and home remodeling contractor is announcing that it is now qualified by InstallationMasters for new construction, window and remodeling projects.
“Everyone who is building or remodeling a house should know that, no matter how much they spend on top notch windows, the windows won’t perform properly if they’re not installed correctly,” explained Michael Krasnov, manager of BuildEx Construction. “Poor installation techniques can defeat the advantages of the product and result in air or water leaks, wasted energy or improper operation.”
To qualify its installers as certified InstallationMasters™, BuildEx Construction sent them to an intensive two-day training course conducted by InstallationMasters™-accredited instructors. The installers had to demonstrate competency by passing a written test designed to assess the knowledge they gained during the training course. Once they passed the test, they became certified InstallationMasters™ installers.
Consumers can confirm that a window installer is qualified under the InstallationMasters™ program by asking to see his/her ID card, provided by the national program administrator upon successful completion of the exam.
The InstallationMasters™ Training and Certification program was developed by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), which BuildEx belongs too – a professional association of some 300 top residential and commercial window, door, and skylight manufacturers and suppliers, which has been recognized for over 60 years as improving product quality performance standards and installation methods in the window and door industry. Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS), the InstallationMasters™ program was launched nationally in 1999.
The educated consumer, in addition to looking for AAMA-certified windows as quality products, will also insist that these products be installed by certified InstallationMasters™ installers. Installed properly, windows are more likely to perform as they have been designed, tested, and certified to perform, with fewer frustrating service calls required to correct problems.
