3 Vital Reasons Why Window Replacements Need to Be Fitted Properly
Modern windows provide many new features that older windows simply cannot. If your home is 10 or more years old then you can benefit from window replacement in Vermont. However, it is vital that your new windows are fitted properly. At Jancewicz & Son, we are fitting experts and always make sure our windows are sealed properly. If a contractor does not complete this vital step correctly, these are the problems you will face.
1. Poor Insulation Is Expensive
If a window is not fitted properly, air can leak around the frame. This means it is more difficult to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which in turn increases your electricity bill. Even if your windows were fitted correctly when they were installed, if they are old enough they still may be costing you money. If your windows are as cold as the air outside, that means they are not acting as an effective thermal barrier. Modern windows have extra layers of plating to prevent energy from leaking out.
2. Water Leaking in Causes Damage
Unlike older windows, new installations are designed to almost completely eliminate the need for costly maintenance on the frame. However, if your window replacement in Vermont is not installed correctly, it is still possible for damage to be done. Water that runs down the window can leak into the wood and cause it to rot. Or the water can leak inside and cause damages to your carpet or other possessions.
3. Poor Fitting Can be a Structural Danger
The worst case scenario for poorly installed windows is that they pose a danger structurally. It is easy to forget that windows play an important role in supporting your walls and the rest of your home. They need to be installed securely with no give at all in order for the architecture to be safe.
