Window replacement can involve significant costs, which is why it’s essential to hire an experienced contractor to handle the job. Properly installed windows last longer, look more appealing and perform better. They can also improve your home’s energy efficiency. However, if your installer does a poor job, you could be dealing with numerous problems.
Here are obvious signs of faulty window installation.
The Presence of Drafts
It’s not normal to still feel drafts in your home after a window replacement. Newly installed windows should eliminate drafts and help minimize energy loss. Inefficient windows will make your living spaces uncomfortable and increase your utility bills. If you notice drafts indoors following a window installation, immediately contact your contractor.
Gaps in Windows
New picture windows fill your living space with natural light and help create a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors. However, if you noticed that there are gaps in your windows, this is indicative of an installation error. You can prevent this problem by working with a reputable window company.
Poor window operation is another sign that your contractor did not install the unit correctly. If your new windows are difficult to open and close or won’t open at all, you should get in touch with the installer. A good window contractor would make sure that every component of your new unit is functioning properly before leaving.
