You’ve made up your mind and decided to take care of installing your windows!
In order to assist aspiring installers, the Association des professionnels de la construction et de l’habitation du Québec (APCHQ), in collaboration with Fenplast, has produced video briefs that will guide people, like you, with some basic installation techniques.
Even if this is not your first time installing, it is always a good idea to refresh your memory with some expert advice!
Find out how to position shims on different types of windows (fixed, composite or casement) to properly level your frame before installing the product.
Note that the video briefs are in French, but you can activate the English subtitles directly on YouTube using the settings (gear symbol) at the bottom right of the video.
