All types of paint ordered must conform to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) standards.

Every scribe joint on the frame has to accurately connect to three different points. To connect wood, tenon-joints and mortise are used. The tenon-joint is made in the wood beam for rails while the mortise is cut in the wood beam for stiles. It is not mandatory that the frame consists of a top and bottom rails.

Painting and installation of accessories is usually the last stage in the manufacturing process. The windows are tested for quality before being packaged for sale.
