InstallationMasters™, prompted by the Building Environment and Thermal Envelope Council (BETEC) through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and development by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), is a nationwide training and certifications program for new construction and replacement windows and doors. 

"When I first looked into becoming an accredited instructor for AAMA InstallationMasters it was for the sole purpose of gaining more education and to train and certify US GLASS installers. Today we provide monthly classes on-line and in-person to certify hundreds of installers across the United States. 

I've certainly made my share of blunders since that first window install in 1980, and although not perfect, our company is far better equipped to handle complex projects in residential and commercial applications since going through InstallationMasters training in 2009.


How do we do it? No two jobs are ever alike. We look at the location, weather history, design pressure requirements, waterproofing, architecture, window styles and integration problems to name a few.  Why? Because we know the best window is only as good as the worst installer and his supervisor.  

Any good installer or supervisor who makes an honest effort to complete this certification and apply the principles learned will become a far better tradesman and ultimately increase his or her own net worth."      Chip Barrett

Charles H Barrett, a native of England, came to the United States to take charge of laying out Central Park in New York City. Mr. Barrett was a surveyor and was in the employ of the United States government for fourteen years.  In late 1882 he came to the Ashtabula Harbor on the Great Lakes and had charge of a government project for two years. His youngest son, Lawrence Marshall started a glass and glazing business in Ashtabula around 1925. He served in the community, sponsored a baseball team and was a member of the gun club. His business tragically ended in 1936 after he was killed in a train accident. His oldest son Charles, twelve at the time, grew up, joined the Navy, worked in oil and gas then in windows for his oldest son Chip.  Chip's son Nathan now runs the glass company. Nathan began picking up trash and helping the installers after school and on weekends which continued through college. After graduation with a degree in business administration he is now both GM and VP making four generations of glazers.
