Alside®, a manufacturer of vinyl windows, patio doors, and siding, has announced the launch of an industry-first trim solution for full-frame replacement projects. Trimworks® with SwiftLock™ Technology, designed for the Mezzo® Full-Frame Replacement System, offers beautiful aesthetics while saving time, labor, and materials. This revolutionary system provides the most reliable solution for installing and replacing vinyl windows with the following three components: Mezzo replacement window, a high-performing, thin-line frame for maximum viewable glass and superior energy efficiency; an ideal frame type with a nailing flange integral to the window frame that provides for proper flashing and water management; and Trimworks decorative window accents, which are a simple, quick, and easy solution for trimming out the new window with flat casing or brickmould, reducing total installation time.
Improper replacement of vinyl windows can generate service calls, drive up costs, and result in poor-quality work that must be redone. Alside’s new solution can save up to 40 minutes of installation time per window, reducing waste materials and eliminating the need for special equipment, training, or cutting skills to trim a window. More windows can be installed per day, which means profitability increases as well. Depending on the desired look, installation time can be reduced between three to seven hours for every ten windows installed.
