While it’s critical to select the perfect replacement windows for your home, it’s also critical to find a reputable contractor to properly install them. This provides optimal window performance while avoiding concerns such as drafts and water damage that might occur as a result of shoddy installation.
Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia, the leading provider of replacement windows, explains why good installation is so important when replacing windows.
1. Weatherproofing. One of the most important roles of windows is to keep the elements out. If a window isn’t installed correctly, it won’t form a watertight barrier between the outside and the inside, enabling water to flow in through gaps and fractures.
This causes a buildup of moisture, which not only compromises the structural integrity of the house but also stimulates the growth of mold and mildew.
2. Energy Efficiency. Even little fractures and holes in the frame of new windows, for example, can result in significant air penetration and energy loss.
This means that good window installation contributes to energy efficiency and, as a result, lowers heating and cooling expenditures all year.
3. Condensation. One of the most prevalent reasons for window replacement is condensation between the panes. Mold development and rotting will occur quickly if moisture condenses on chilly surfaces between the frame and the wall.
While many people feel that the issue arises from the window’s quality, the majority of the time, the issue is due to inadequate installation.
