The quality of your windows is just as important as the quality of the installation. As such, you need to work with a reputable window contractor that has the skills and experience to ensure a proper installation.
In this blog, your Hardie® board and window replacement expert, S.I.S. Exterior Renovations, shares the telltale signs that your contractor did a poor job installing your windows.
A window shouldn’t feel drafty, especially not if it was recently installed. A newly installed window should eliminate drafts and increase your home’s energy efficiency. Windows today are manufactured to withstand wear and tear from the elements. However, if the window isn’t installed properly it won’t perform as expected. A poorly installed window can make your home feel uncomfortable and lead to higher energy costs. If you notice that your new windows are drafty, do not hesitate to contact your local window contractor to address the issue.
Are there gaps around your windows? Even tiny gaps are a problem. These gaps are a telltale sign that your windows may not have been installed correctly. You can remedy this issue by having your window and siding contractor seal the gaps with caulk or spray foam.
If you find it difficult to open and close your windows, this could indicate a faulty installation. Contact your window contractor immediately while the windows are still covered by your warranty.
