Window performance strongly depends on the quality of window installation. You can opt for the best windows in the market, spend money on expensive upgrades, but if the installation or replacement is not done by a certified window installer, that money is as good as wasted. The windows could be leaky due to poor installation and might let in both air and water which will further weaken the structure. Be it any kind of window – bow window, bay window, or awnings, every window must be installed with utmost care.
Ensuring proper installation is key to well-maintained, long-lasting window performance. Eco Choice Windows and Doors are highly qualified and certified to handle the various installation and replacement tasks for any kind of home.
Opt for Certified Window Installers to Avoid Common Installation Problems
Problems with Opening and Closing
This is the kind of problem that might go unnoticed initially especially if your windows were installed during the colder season when you don’t frequently open your windows. However, come summer, you will find this a painstaking task to deal with. Windows might start jamming when you try to open them or they might get stuck which would further accentuate the problem. Poor window installation can cause this problem which could be easily avoided. You will face this problem in windows such as casement windows and slider windows if they are improperly installed.
Water and Draft Damage
If there is a draft coming in which is noticeable especially during winters, it is a sure shot sign of poor window installation. If you notice wet stains on the carpet, mold growing near the window, take it as an indicator that there is leakage caused due to the window. If no water is visible, you will eventually get a musty smell caused due to the seepage. Windows letting in the draft will greatly increase your energy bills apart from making your room extremely uncomfortable to live in.
Gaps between the Sill and Frame
If you notice a gap between the window sill and frame, you’ve encountered one of the most common mistakes of poor window installation. This shows that the installer did not correctly measure the materials and frame size during installation. Gaps may be invisible to the naked eye but you will surely feel them. If you notice that your energy bills are on the rise post window installation or your home feels breezier, it is a sign that there are gaps in the window that is letting unwanted air inside.
Foggy Glass Panes
If your windows look wet and foggy even in the absence of any rain, it is surely a red flag. Condensation should not occur inside the windowpane. If that is the case, it is a sign of poor window installation. Contact us for proper window installation to avoid such problems. We can also replace windows that have been improperly installed.
