Ideally, a good window installation service should do more than just help you install new windows in your home. The service performed by the contractors should add functional value to your home, and they can do this by executing the installation properly, which will allow your new windows to realize their potential in terms of energy saving and temperature control.
Indeed, windows play a large role in driving down utility costs and making your property's curb appeal exceptional.?
In today’s blog, we want to give homeowners some tips on what you should be checking after a window installation service so that you have peace of mind.
1. All mechanisms and hardware works well
A quality window installation service will ensure that the opening and closing of the windows are smooth. You can test this by opening and closing your windows slowly for about three to four times. If it feels slightly rough at any point, it is worth asking your contractors if it can be fixed.
2. There are no drafts nearby
If you feel outside temperatures emanating in when you are next to your newly-installed window, there is a small chance that there are gaps between the window frame and its sill. It is important to catch this issue early as gaps will cause utility prices to shoot up.
3. There is no condensation between glazed windowpanes
Condensation occurs when hot and cold temperatures clash together resulting in water forming. If this happens between your windowpanes, then it's a clear sign that the window installation service was poor. Contact your contractor and ask about the warranty.
