How Can You Tell if Window Installation was Done Incorrectly?

January 04, 2019 0

Things can go wrong even if you do all the right things. For instance, buying replacement windows in Scarborough, ON and paying to have them installed professionally are both great moves. But if you end up with a company whose installers don’t really know what they’re doing, you might end up with an installation that either needs to be done over or needs to be fixed up. That can be frustrating since getting windows installed professionally shouldn’t lead to problems.

Here’s how you can tell if the window installation job was less than successful. Once you figure out something’s wrong, you can contact the service provider and get the problem corrected.

Water

If your windows were put in recently and you notice water seeping in every time it rains, you will need to call the replacement window company and get them to send an installer to fix the problem. A proper installation with adequate insulation will keep water outside where it belongs. If you obverse your windows and report any problems quickly to the replacement window company, you’ll be able to avoid serious damage.

Drafts

Sometimes older windows get drafty, but you shouldn’t experience such issues with new windows that were recently installed. If you feel air from outside getting in even though the windows are shut and locked, then you have drafts or leaks. There are could different reasons behind this. If the window was positioned improperly, perhaps leaving gaps, this could lead to draft or leak problems. Another potential cause may be a lack of insulation. Get the company to return to fix the issue. If you don’t, you’ll eventually notice an increase in your utility bills. The reason for this is that your furnace or air conditioner will have to work harder to maintain the temperature you want if air from outside is finding its way inside.

Difficult Operation

Are you having a hard time opening and closing your new windows? This sort of problem should not occur if you have new windows, but any of a number of reasons may account for it. You’ll need a service call to figure out what’s the matter and to fix the problem.

These are just some of the problems you may experience if your replacement windows in Scarborough, ON are not put in properly.
