Would you microwave filet mignon? Paint a BMW with finger paint? Surround Tom Brady with pee-wee football players?

No way.

So why buy world-class windows and doors if your contractor is just going to use inferior installation?

Here’s the truth: You could buy the best windows and doors in the Boston area. But improper installation will wipe out practically ALL of their benefits… and leave you with drafts, leaks, and ballooning energy bills.

Solid State Construction Full Frame Window Installation - Central MA

We Do Insert Installation And Full-Frame Installation

Insert installation (also known as replacement) consists of removing the old window or door and inserting a new one into the existing frame. Full-frame installation involves tearing out the frame, stripping the cavity bare, reconstructing the opening where necessary, and installing new insulation and flashing.

Nine out of 10 Boston-area remodelers do only insert installation because it’s easier, cheaper, and faster. We, however, do whichever method is best for your home.

If your frames are in good shape, we’ll recommend insert installation. If we determine that your frames will destroy any and all benefits of your new windows and doors, we’ll recommend full-frame installation. At Solid State Construction, it’s not about doing what’s easy… it’s about doing what’s RIGHT.

You wouldn’t nuke a juicy filet mignon, finger-paint a BMW, or put Tom Brady on a team with 10-year-olds. So why put best-in-class windows and doors in the hands of a contractor that will quash their true potential?

Contact us. We’re the company that utilizes PROPER installation to maximize the capabilities, efficiency, and lifespan of your new windows and doors in the Boston area.
