While it is important to use a good quality window with a strong warranty in Hawaii, the most important aspect of window replacement is the measuring, installation and service associated with your new windows.

Hawaii is a unique environment for building materials and construction. We have a lot of exposure to salt and resultant corrosion as well as strong wind, rain and exposure to ultra-violet light. In addition we have a variety of construction methods including single wall, double wall, concrete block, sometimes all part of the same home.

While installing windows in a home being constructed or added onto is a relatively simple install, installing windows after a home is built is much more challenging. There are different methods of installing windows into existing openings each requiring its own expertise.


Over time homes shift, so your window or door openings may no longer be square. Improper construction can cause the beams above your doors or windows to sag, affecting how the window or door operates and posing a challenge when trying to install a new one.

You need a contractor whose staff has the experience to tackle any of these challenges and come up with window and door installation that won’t cause you stress or additional work in the future.
