Mistakes Professional Window Installers Never Commit

You might have bought windows that offer the best value for money, but they’re most likely to fail if not installed properly. Indeed, they are only as good as their installation, which is why working with the best contractor for the job is imperative. A licensed and insured team of professionals has the skills and expertise for you to get the most out of your investment. Plus, you won’t have to worry about them committing any of the mistakes discussed below.

Incorrect Measurement

Good window installers are aware of the golden rule in the industry — “measure twice, cut once”. A minor mistake could lead to significant problems such as energy inefficiency, water leakage and overall structural compromise. Professional installers confirm measurements multiple times to ensure precision and accuracy.

Neglecting Local Building Codes

Professional installers always stay informed about the latest local building and safety codes. They adhere strictly to the required standards, and considering this factor in planning and execution is an integral part of their work.

Choosing the Wrong Type of Window

Good window installers know windows aren’t one-size-fits-all. They avoid installing the wrong window type for a specific architectural style or region and always consider factors like climate, architectural design and customer preference.

Ignoring the Importance of Insulation

Insulation is a crucial factor for energy efficiency that good installers never overlook. They correctly and effectively insulate around the window frames, preventing unwanted air intrusion, heat gain or heat loss.

Not Using a Level

Good window installers understand that an improperly leveled window can lead to severe issues. It can lead to difficulties opening and closing, security risks and even structural problems. They always use a level during installation and routinely check throughout the process.

Rushing the Job

Professional window installers never take shortcuts or rush to finish an installation prematurely. For them, time and care are required to ensure the windows fit perfectly and function optimally.

Leaving a Mess Behind

Lastly, professional installers respect the property they work on. After installation, they clean up the area, leaving it as neat as they found it, if not neater.
