Architects know that windows and doors impact more than the home’s design. They also affect the house’s carbon footprint and resilience against weather conditions such as wind, rain, snow, and heat. That’s why choosing the right models and brands is critical. The truth is product selection is easier said than done. Architects specify products to get the best quality for the client’s budget, to ultimately find the perfect balance of performance, design, and sustainability features to satisfy project goals and achieve their client’s vision. There’s also the warranty support to consider in case something happens later. Having a friend on the dealer and manufacturing side makes this process simpler. Rather than relying on their research, they can supplement their findings with firsthand experiences from people closest to the product—people who know how the product works, understand all the technical issues, and have strong opinions on brands.
