Windows play a key role in adding character and changing the style of your home. With the right choice and correct installation, windows can become the most noticeable feature of your home. For you to end up with smooth-operating, long-lasting, and energy-efficient windows, the installation process should be executed with great attention to detail.
Here are some window installation mistakes you should avoid at all costs:
- Inaccurate window opening measurement. Before you order new windows, the measurement should be done first. At Carolina Custom Roofing, we offer free inspection and estimates, so you can always invite us to your home to take accurate measurements and advise you accordingly. Doing so will help you save money and time because we’ll complete the window installation in time.
- Installing windows without matching profiles. Windows may look similar but have different profile widths. To ensure we achieve clean lines, we can guide you on choosing windows from different collections with matching profiles.
- Poor caulking. Caulking on the perimeter of your windows is an effective defense against the elements. If your caulking seal isn’t continuous and uniform, it might leave gaps that allow moisture inside your house. With more than 25 years of experience, our team understands that the surface should be cleaned thoroughly to ensure a strong bond. We also use the right tooling like a caulking spatula to ensure the surface is not bumpy and that it lasts long.
We provide both window installation and replacement services. Get in touch with us today if you’re looking for a trustable contractor.
