Why Hire a Minneapolis Manufacturer-Certified or Authorized Window and Door Installer

If you’re a Minneapolis business or homeowner planning on replacing your windows and/or exterior doors, you may already know you have lots of choices as to who to work with for installation. You COULD buy from a local big-box retailer and do it yourself (which we do not recommend), or you can hire a Minnesota licensed home remodeling contractor.  We’re in the business, so we are aware we have lots of competitors out there.  Some do other work and just offer window and door installation as part of their services; for us it’s our main specialty, so we’ve got that going for us.

But we’ve also formed some very important relationships with some of the manufacturers we partner with.  We are a Marvin Authorized Replacement Contractor for their exterior doors and energy-efficient windows.  And we are also a ProVia Certified Installer as well as a ProVia Platinum Dealer for their entry doors, patio doors, storm doors, and windows.  Each one of these designations comes with various criteria we’ve met and/or manufacturer training.  But the main thing we’d like to point out is when a replacement window or door company has achieved what a door and window manufacturer requires for that designation, it means the installer as gone the extra mile. And for our company, since we pride ourselves on an exceptional level of customer service, it means we can offer you the very best installation possible, based both on our own experience as well as following manufacturer-specified installation techniques.

There are other benefits as well, and they vary with program to program, but the main point we want to stress is that a window or door is only as good as the company that installed it.  You’re investing in your home with a quality product, so why not protect that investment by working with a window and door contractor who the manufacturer has given high marks?  And read your door or window guarantee or warranty very carefully – in many cases improper installation will void the warranty.
