The American Window and Door Institute (AWDI) is a reputable certifying body that helps separate the good installers from the bad. It developed a meticulous certification program to weed out unreliable window companies and bring credibility to those that play by the rules.
At Valiant Home Remodelers, we’re proud of our hard-earned AWDI certification. We invest our time and energy to gain and maintain this prestigious recognition, making us a better installer of windows in all areas.
Why should you work with a company that the AWDI approves of? To receive its coveted certification, you must pass rigorous requirements, including:
Training and Actual Field Experience
The AWDI requires candidates to undergo its standardized installation training and/or demonstrate experience through successful installations with verifiable references. Only formal training and actual work can prove a company’s substantial knowledge of the trade.
On-Going Skill Improvement
Once certified, the AWDI necessitates installers to attend seminars to ensure constant improvement. Apart from ensuring companies have the necessary expertise and product knowledge to install windows, these seminars help improve their soft skills to better serve customers.
Adherence to Best Industry Practices
The fenestration industry can be a volatile one. The AWDI makes sure its certified installers adapt to the field’s ever-changing landscape and adopt safer and more efficient installation methods to benefit homeowners.
To get the nod of the AWDI, the company is subject to 120 days of temporary certification. The organization observes and grades every installer during the actual project based on skills, techniques, and results.
Compliance With Manufacturer’s Installation Instructions
Since installers use windows made by different manufacturers, there’s not a single installation method that applies to all. The AWDI makes sure the company follows the specific product guidelines that the manufacturer has set in place to ensure long-term product performance.
