Most homeowners would agree that a window installation project is an important investment to improve their home’s appearance and energy efficiency. There are numerous intricacies when it comes to installing a window and the last thing you’d want is to have an installer that does a poor job, causing more problems. In this post, the leading casement windows specialist, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, shares four mistakes a good window installer won’t commit. Read on to learn more about them:
1. Wrong fit for window openings. Your window’s rough opening measurements will depend on your window’s style and the local building codes. A poor fitment won’t allow you to install your windows properly. Here at Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City, we always take accurate measurements to a T. This ensures that your window fits right into the rough opening, with enough allowance for the sealant and spray foam.
2. Ignoring manufacturer’s instructions. While it’s true that most windows share similar installation methods, some windows might have special instructions or methods that need to be followed for them to be installed properly. This can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. For instance, our Fibrex® replacement windows require a specific method to be installed correctly. As such, you can expect your stylish, new windows to function properly for the years to come.
3. Improper use of spray foam. The high-expansion spray foam is used to fill the gaps between the window frames and the opening to keep it insulated. However, an inexperienced window installer could get carried away and apply too much foam around the window, which leads to distortion.
4. Stains and fingerprints on the windows. At Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City, we take extra care of your windows. We ensure that we sanitize ourselves before working on your windows as not to leave any stains and fingerprints on your newly-installed windows. We’ll also clean off any excess foam or sealant, if any, and we’ll make sure that you’ll get the most out of your new windows.
