We have a few helpful tips for homeowners when they are evaluating window companies in Atlanta. Not all window installations are created equal. The following are some guidelines to help identify key areas of installation that can directly affect the amount of air that can pass through a window as well as overall functionality and ease of operation.
In order for a window to seal properly, it must be correctly installed in a way that allows the weather stripping in all areas of the frame and sash to make proper contact and compression while still permitting the window to function. Ideally a window should be installed perfectly plumb, level and square, but it is important not to rely entirely on exact measurements. Identifying areas where the weather stripping may not be making proper contact is also a very useful tool in diagnosing potential issues. When shopping for a good window installation contractor they should be able to provide you with accurate information.
