Not all window installers are created equal!
After testing thousands of homes with depressurization equipment and infrared imaging, we have confirmed what many homeowners fear: that their new, replacement windows continue to be drafty and leaky due to shoddy, corner cutting installation practices.
Unlike the competition, we’ve made it our standard practice to offer true, complete window replacement. We removing the old window framing entirely, allowing access to every nook and cranny in the rough opening for complete air sealing and insulation using low-expansion foam and silicone caulking. Going the extra mile to ensure an air tight installation has fringe benefits as well, bringing with it new, now-maintenance extension jambs and casing trim, and a much larger glass surface and viewing area when compared to inserts.
There are many reasons to replace old, inefficient poorly-operating windows. Diagnosing what’s best for you home and your budget starts with a complete inspection.
Poor Installation, Insulation and Weatherization – We’re quick to blame windows unfairly for the drafts that we feel; often, it is the installation of those windows that is to blame. Sometimes, the solution to a drafty window is a matter of removing trim, foam sealing, and caulking around your existing window units.
Inefficient, Old, or Damaged Windows - single pane glass windows are notorious for being cold, frosty, and drafty – and are usually top priorities for replacement. But even double pane windows can fail – losing the seal between panes and acting more like a single pane window. Infrared scanning can help determine whether your double-paned windows are sealed properly.
Poor Operation, Seals and Hardware – latches, crank mechanisms, and weather stripping are usually the first things to fail on a window. When selecting new windows, look for sturdy hardware, redundant weather stripping and seals, and of course, detailed installation for years of smooth operation.
