The Importance of Proper Window Installation

To help reduce the cost of a window installation, some homeowners take the risk by hiring amateurs to install their new window, or even attempt to complete the job themselves. Prioritising the financial aspect of a window installation over the quality of the job in question  doesn’t seem like the best way to go about it.

Furthermore, it’s important to hire a reliable expert to install your window professionally and in a timely manner, just like us here at Salop Glass. This ensures optimal window performance, while allowing you to avoid any potential issues in the future. This article by Salop Glass will discuss the importance of proper window installation.

Why Is Proper Window Installation Important?

It’s relatively easy for cold temperatures and moisture to invade your home through a poorly-fitted window. This coldness creates unwanted draughts around the home and it can leave homeowners with raised energy bills because they have turned up their heating. Excess moisture can travel down your walls, leading to water damage and mould on your walls. If not spotted and fixed properly, this can weaken your home’s structural integrity as well as decrease its value. 

Having windows installed by an expert means an effective barrier is maintained between the outside elements and the inside of your home. This helps limit air leakage that can cause considerable energy loss. You won’t have to worry about your windows causing mould or draughts in your home. A properly installed window eliminates these health risks and increases your home’s air quality.
