Your windows are an indispensable part of your home as they are responsible for natural daylight and ventilation. They also help improve the overall energy efficiency of your home. But while you can have the best windows in the world, you won’t be able to bring out their full potential if they’re not installed correctly, which is why you should only have a pro do this job.
Your window is responsible for keeping you and your home protected from the harsh elements. Installing your windows correctly will give you peace of mind knowing that your home’s insides will have a continuous water barrier between the window and the wall. If it’s installed incorrectly, this will result in water entering your home and causing gaps and cracks to surface. This will also lead to moisture buildup that will affect your home’s structural integrity and be the catalyst for mold growth.
A small crack around your window frame can compromise your windows and cause air to penetrate through them. This leads to substantial energy wastage. With a professionally installed window, your home will rely less on your HVAC units, leading to decreased utility bills during the summer and winter months, demonstrating its energy efficiency. Not to mention, this will save you hundreds or thousands of dollars in the long run.
Condensation between windows is one of the top reasons why homeowners opt to replace their windows. If vapor condenses on cold surfaces between the frame of the wall, like the corner of a window, rotting will be imminent. A common misconception that homeowners believe is that condensation is the result of a poor window, but 90% of the time, it’s due to faulty installation.
