Behind the Scenes: MI in Motion

There’s so much that goes into MI windows and doors to deliver beauty, performance, safety, comfort and noise reduction. With our video gallery, you can get an inside look at things like our robust testing process or how we achieve maximum energy efficiency in our windows. It’s all right here so you can make the most informed decisions.

We are always adding to our gallery of DIY window and door repair and installation videos. Through these videos, learn more about the guiding principles of MI Windows and Doors and, for viewers interested in a "How It's Made" experience, how our windows are fabricated in any one of our three U.S.-based manufacturing locations. We also have resources that show how to install a window or how to repair or adjust various parts of our windows without the need for a technician. If you are looking for something specific in our video content and don't see it here, please let us know, and we will do our best to create it in the future. 


How to Replace a Block-and-Tackle Balance

Jan 9, 2018, 11:07 AM
The balance is the part of a hung window that counter-balances the weight of the sash when you open and close the window. This video shows how to replace a block-and-tackle balance on single-hung and double-hung windows from MI Windows and Doors. The window used in this video is a HomeMaker3 150 single-hung window with a side-load sash. Your window may look slightly different or have a tilt-in sash, as product appearance varies depending on make and model; however, the process for replacing the balance does not change.
