Amendment Flag true  
Amendment Description The amended 10-Q reflects the reclassification and presentation of certain transaction bonuses related to the Business Combination from a component of stockholders’ equity to a component of general and administrative expenses for the three and six months period ended June 26, 2021, upon the closing of the Business Combination in June 2021. In addition, the Company determined that certain other transaction bonuses related to the Business Combination should have been recorded in the Janus International segment instead of the Janus North American segment. The errors related to the transaction bonuses impacted the presentation of our segment reporting for the same periods.
