Spare-No-Detail Window Installation
In St. Louis & St. Charles Counties
We Consider Everything.
If you’re a stickler for details looking for window installation in St. Louis or St. Charles County, we’re going to be a good match.
When it comes to window installation, we’re what some would call “obsessive.” The details other contractors find too small or unimportant? Those are the details we find essential. On every job. For every customer. Zero exceptions.
Here are a few examples of our above-and-beyond attitude toward window installation.
Aluminum trim coil is a finishing detail used in the gap between the rough opening of a window and the frame itself. It wraps from the window to the exterior cladding of your home.
Most trim coil is flimsy (therefore susceptible to the harsh elements) and comes with a finish that’s painted on (which makes it fade quickly). Our trim coil, however, is made from heavy-duty titanium alloy and comes with a baked-on finish that protects against UV rays. It’s nearly as strong as pure steel but only half the weight. It also resists atmospheric and chemical corrosion through an ultra-thin yet exceptionally hard layer of aluminum oxide.
Does our trim coil cost us more? Yes… about double the price of what contractors typically pay. Is it worth every penny? Yes… and then some.
A lot of window companies tend to use batten insulation around windows. The issue is that batten insulation acts like a sponge when moisture touches it. This can lead to mold, mildew, and expensive water damage.
To prevent this, we use a low-expansion, closed-cell foam. The closed-cell structure of our insulation means moisture won’t penetrate it, which prevents the problems that can occur with batten insulation.
The result? Superior insulation that actually resists water-related problems.
In December 2018, one of our Project Consultants was performing the final walkthrough of a window project with a customer.
The customer: 100% satisfied with the windows.
Our rep: 0% satisfied with the windows.
He noticed a sash on one of the windows was slightly crooked as the result of a manufacturer defect. We’re talking millimeters—something only a trained eye would ever notice.
Our rep could have left it, and the customer would have never known. But leaving a project only 99.9% right? That’s not in our DNA.
Our Project Consultant contacted our window manufacturer to get the issue resolved. We explained the problem and made the manufacturer send a new sash. Once it arrived, we removed the crooked sash and installed the new one.
Some companies may see this as a waste of time and labor. After all, if the customer is happy, why bother?
Answer: Because it bothers us!
You’re paying us to do the job right. And we take our obligation seriously. That’s why we make sure everything is correct before we can put our final stamp of approval on the job… even the details you’d never notice.
Some window companies in the St. Louis metro area pay their installers a low wage per window. This can create problems, since an installer’s pay is determined not by how well he does the job, but how fast. As a result, the installation may be rushed, corners may be cut, and mistakes may be made.
This isn’t the window installer’s fault—he’s simply trying to put food on the table. We understand this, which is why we pay our certified installers almost DOUBLE what many window companies do. This allows our crew to take the time to do the job right, rather than worrying about meeting a lofty installation quota to make a living wage.
In truth, we’d never hire installers who place a premium on “done fast” over “done right.” Our installers are the kind of people who bust out the tape measure when making their beds… wake up in a cold sweat at 3am with the urge to organize their kitchen cabinets… and cried when they colored a nanometer outside the lines when they were kids.
Yes, you could say our window installers are preoccupied with perfection.
