What does AAMA certification mean? Approximately 60 percent of all residential windows and doors now sold in the U.S. carry the AAMA certification label. In order to earn AAMA certification for their products, manufacturers must agree not only to submit products to independent testing, but also to unannounced in-plant inspections of their production lines in order to prove that the product being tested in the lab is the same as the product coming out of the factory. AAMA also leads the industry in thermal testing and certification, playing a key role in qualifying ENERGY STAR® compliant products in the marketplace. – See more at: http://www.aamanet.org
