4 SIGNS OF POORLY INSTALLED WINDOWS

Correctly installed windows operate smoothly and efficiently. A fully functional window can boost your home’s curb appeal and energy efficiency. Working with a fly-by-night installer instead of a licensed contractor for your window replacement can, however, result in costly repairs or premature replacement.

4 Signs Of Poorly Installed Windows

Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, a premier windows installation company in the area, shares four telltale signs of poorly installed windows.

1. Visible Gaps

There’s no excuse for windows that don’t fit, most especially when you paid a contractor to finish the job for you. Incorrect window measurements can create gaps between the frame and sill or wall. This can compromise your windows’ ability to be airtight, which, in turn, reduces your home’s energy efficiency.

2. Drafts

Your casement windows are part of your home’s thermal envelope; they help keep your living space cozy all year round. Poorly installed windows, however, can cause drafts and lead to a sharp increase in your utility bills. In fact, drafty windows can result in a 10% to 15% increase in your energy bills.

3. Leaks

Water has a way of seeping through even the tiniest holes, which is why you need to have perfectly fitted windows. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen provides custom-built replacement windows based on the existing wall openings of your home. This prevents window leaks that can damage other components of your interior space.

4. Difficulty in Operation

Your new windows must smoothly open and close. There’s no reason for it to squeak or get stuck unless it’s improperly installed. Hard-to-operate windows often have a sash that is slightly smaller or bigger than the rest of the window.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."
