Residential Window Installation

Wednesday, February 14th from 4:15-5:15 PM & Thursday, February 15th from 3:15-4:15 PM


This informative training will demonstrate the proper storage, handling, and installation of vinyl windows. Methods and suggested best practices will cover four window types: nail fin only, nail fin with integral J, nail fin with builder-supplied J, and EZ-v system for corrugated siding.

Vinyl window industry experts will walk through installation best practices while encouraging dialog and idea sharing amongst those in attendance.   Displays will include 3D models of window and trim systems, displays with sectional cutouts of installed windows, materials and tools required, and practical advice and conversation related to window installation in general.  This is not a sales presentation and will focus on the areas of risk to all involved and opportunities for successful product installation and product performance.
