Window Installation Begins

Last week, window installation began at the Carpenters Center. A composite crew of carpenters and glazers working for Sunrise Erectors began installing punched opening windows on the second floor.

Aluminum window frame installation continues throughout the building. The lightweight gauge of the aluminum frame requires it to be installed to the wall assembly (metal stud, Dens Glass, air/vapor barrier) first. Once the the frame in place the carpenters and glazers can install and seal the glass within the frame.

To ensure proper layout, crews work from the corners of the building and work inward to the center.

  1. I'm always interested in how windows are installed because I'm thinking of having my house remodeled. Thanks for this.
