Window Installation: All About Sizing the Window, Types & Styles and the Installers Experience
Even the best products in the world will fail if they are not installed correctly – in the world of remodeling even a mistake as small as a 1/16th of an inch can have disastrous results.
It’s sad but true – many so called “home remodelers” use day laborers because it saves them money on labor costs. It’s also true that many remodelers opt for mass produced windows that they buy off of a shelf because it saves them money on material costs. Unfortunately, the end result is what we in the industry call a “rip-and-stick.” They simply show up and “rip” out your old windows and “stick” in the new ones with a few shims and a whole lot of caulking. And while it’s highly profitable it’s a terrible way to do business.
In fact, here is what a 1/16th of an inch mistake – that let water run down the back of the window and down the wall – looks like after a few years of going unnoticed. That is the problem. Less than reputable contractors know that they can cut corners to pad profits because mistakes will go unnoticed for years. By the time you discover the problem it’s too late. The damage has been done, and good luck finding the guy that installed your windows – let alone getting him to fix the damage.
