What You Need To Know
A case study in transformation among residential construction product manufacturers’ critical path, away from price competition toward holistic installation and performance values, benefiting both builder and end-user residents. The patented system—developed to ease installation of window and door sub-members and joined combinations—is a platform of factory fabrication process, engineering, and interlocking fiberglass joining plates that speeds installation, lowers labor time and costs, and accelerates call-back-proof completion of rough-framing to finishing stages of construction cycle—subtracting waste, and adding a meaningful value in the form of indoor-outdoor living.

Since then, research suggests builders can save up to 50% on installer crews as indoor-outdoor living has spiraled into one of new residential construction’s non-negotiable trends.
