Spending time and money on a window installation, only to find out the work has actually been done poorly can be frustrating. Most of the time, the realization hits instantly because the finished job looks so obviously bad, but there are also cases where you’ll only discover the fact after several days or weeks have passed. STL Windows Direct, the premier door and window installation company in the area, shares how to tell if your windows were poorly installed.
Properly installed windows come with an airtight seal that helps prevent outdoor air from leaking into your home. But if the contractor has done a shoddy job of it, the windows may not be caulked or sealed correctly. The gaps created between the window frame and the wall opening make it possible for drafts to enter your home, compromising its indoor comfort and energy efficiency.
You’ll want your windows to be smooth-operating. But if opening, closing, or locking them seems to be a constant battle, you should probably suspect poor installation. It could be that the windows haven’t been measured or aligned properly, causing them to jam or stick.
Condensation on the Window Panes
Condensation forming on the surface of the window glass is common, and not usually something you should be worried about. But if the fogging occurs between the glass panes, that’s another story. This can only mean that the windows were not properly sealed during the installation.
