You can purchase the finest windows money can buy, but if the installation isn’t done properly, your windows won’t perform correctly. When it comes to window replacement, the importance of a flawless installation cannot be overstated.
Here are some of the problems homeowners encounter when mistakes are made during window installation.
Gaps and Spaces Between Frame and Window
Improper installation of your casement, sliding or double hung windows often leaves gaps between the frame and the window. Even a miniscule gap allows drafts to seep into your home, or let cooled air out when you’re using air-conditioning. This causes temperature fluctuations that your HVAC system compensates for by consuming more energy. This is an inefficient use of energy, which results in high energy bills.
When a contractor fails to properly install your new double hung or casement windows, they may not seal the opening well enough to prevent air from entering or the glass from fogging. The company you hire must follow a strict process to ensure the proper application of sealants.
Erratic temperature fluctuations in your home may point to poorly installed windows. The materials used for the frames and glass may positively or negatively affect insulation. Improper window installation, wrong placing, wrong frame size and a botched installation can all hamper a window’s insulating properties.
