Service Calls

Despite our dedication to the highest standards it is still possible that one of our components may fail. Our excellent guarantees have been conceived with you and this in mind.

Our dealers and representatives are committed to providing the best after sales service where and when it is really needed. We are, however, too frequently required to make calls for reasons beyond our control and responsibility. Condensation, almost always is due to higher than recommended inside humidity levels in relations to colder outside temperature; window and door adjustments and oversights in installation are among the most typical. Before requesting a service call, please review our warranty and installation instructions. It may help to avoid the minimum charge of $180.00. We thank you for your cooperation.
