What Is Installation Masters?
Installation Masters is a nationwide training and certification program specializing in new construction and replacement installation techniques of windows and doors in the residential and light commercial markets. It was prompted by the Building Environment and Thermal Envelope Council (BETEC) through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and developed by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). The training program is based on proper industry accepted practices and principles that have been developed over the years by members of ASTM, CAWM and AAMA. It provides assurance that the installer has completed a training program that is culminated with an extensive final exam.

A great window is only great if it is installed properly. So many homeowners overlook the installation process as they focus too much on the actual window itself. At Window Nation in Cleveland, Washington D.C. and Baltimore, an amazing 25% of our business is replacing replacement windows. There are so many inferior windows on the market and then adding in poor installation can only result into major issues. How would you feel if you have had to pay for new windows twice?
