Whether you’re seeking a traditional window replacement or a completely custom window solution, we will help create a window replacement plan that works for your needs and budget.
Common mistakes with window installations.
Here are some of the problem's homeowners encounter when mistakes are made during window installation.
· Gaps and spaces between Frame and windows- Improper installation of your casement, sliding or double hung windows often leaves gaps between the frame and the window. Even a small gap allows drafts to seep into your home, or lets cooled air out when your using air-conditioning. This causes temperature fluctuations that your HVAC system compensates for by consuming more energy. This is an inefficient use of energy, which results in high energy bills.
· Improper sealing- When a contractor fails to correctly install your new double hung or casement windows, they may not seal the opening enough to prevent air from entering or the glass from fogging. Remodeling, MD follows a strict process to ensure the proper application of sealants.
· Poor insulation- changing temperature fluctuations in your home may point to poorly installed windows. The materials used for the frames and glass may positively or negatively affect insulation. Improper window installation, wrong placing, wrong frame size and a botched installation can all obstruct a window’s insulating properties.
