Window installers fit pre-made windows into window openings and door frames for all types of homes and structures. They often work in new construction, remodeling jobs, or replacement fixtures, and some work on private or small business structures while others work on expansive business structures. The installation of windows is physically demanding and may require climbing on ladders or scaffolding, as windows come in all shapes and sizes and installers must be able to lift or support significant amounts of weight.
Window installers must be able to work with other installers and supervisors in different climates. More work is typically available in summer than winter, and mathematical skills and close attention to detail are also necessary to guarantee that windows are level, climate-tight, and installed according to original blueprints. Installers may also be responsible for providing estimates for the labor and materials involved in a given project. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
