Alweather’s locking systems pass the toughest forced-entry tests, giving you increased security and peace of mind. Options are available to add laminated glass or plexi-glass. In addition, for extreme situations, stainless steel reinforcement can be added to sash profiles. We can recommend a solution to any challenging environment.
Alweather Windows & Doors are delivered with installation clips pre-installed. The clips are located exactly according to the size and design of the window. With installation clips, it is not necessary to drill installation holes into the frame of the window. The clips allow the installer to square and shim the window using the clips, thereby installing windows directly into the stud wall without compromising the integrity of the window frame.
Alweather’s installers are employees. They are trained carpenters with many years of experience and will treat your home as if it were their own. We are particularly proud of our installers and their professional manner. We think you will be very pleased too
