Like all things, there are better brands and then there are- the best brands. While most contractors will tell you that brand is irrelevant, that isn’t entirely true. There are manufacturers that build better equipment, even if it is installed poorly these brands will last longer than others that were installed sub-standard. We agree with the consensus- right installation is key. BUT, we want to take it one step further: Right installation is right for superior products.
