OUR PROMISE

Attention to detail and developing doors and windows that are long lasting is a pledge we make to every customer. To back that commitment, Kohltech Windows & Entrance Systems takes every measure possible, and then some, to make sure you are getting the very best.

Ensuring an unbiased opinion is key. To guarantee impartial judgment, Kohltech Windows & Entrance Systems sends its windows and entrance systems to be tested and certified by independent testing labs in both the United States and Canada. From these test results we are very pleased to report our windows meet or exceed published industry standards regulated by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), ENERGY STAR, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA).

We know that success involves much more than a superior product. That’s why we guarantee our hardware, window frames and sashes for a lifetime. Our dependable and secure insulated glass unit is also covered for up to a lifetime. Permafinished components are under warranty for 10 years.

Our vigorous product certification ensures our windows and doors meet or exceed CSA approved standards and are also NFRC and AAMA certified. Our in-house testing facility also ensures our products achieve benchmark performance ratings.
