One of the most important investments you’ll make for your home is a window installation project. After all, it improves your home’s design, ventilation and energy efficiency. However, there are a lot of intricacies that go into a window installation project, so you’ll need to work with a skilled window installer to avoid these road bumps.
In this post, your trusted installer of picture windows, Renewal by Andersen® of Oklahoma, shares two mistakes a skilled window installer will avoid during a project.
Not Following Manufacturer Instructions
Some window installers think that they’re skilled enough that they don’t need to rely on the window manufacturer’s installation instructions before starting the project. While most windows are installed the same way, remember that some manufacturers might require special instructions or extra steps so that the homeowner can maximize their new window’s performance.
Not to mention that there are windows that have unique features that need to be installed by following the manufacturer’s instructions, word-per-word. This goes to show how important instructions are, no matter how skilled you are when it comes to windows replacement and installation projects.
Not Sanitizing Before the Job
This is something that should be followed for general hygiene, but this is especially important amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Remember that a skilled contractor will always wash their hands before and after working on a project so that they wouldn’t tarnish or damage the materials that they come in contact with. There are even some contractors who would go as far as wearing protective equipment such as suits and gloves to give the homeowner peace of mind by being as sanitary as possible. When you’re looking for a window installer to work with nowadays, it isn’t enough that they are skilled, but they should be sanitary as well.
