3 Problems That Could Arise From a Bad Window and Door Installation

May 17, 2019

The installation of your windows and doors is a precise thing. If the measurements are just slightly off or the quality of the installation is poor, it can lead to problems with your home down the line. That’s why it’s so important to find a window and door contractor in Leawood that you can trust. These are a few problems that can arise as a result of poor window and door installation.

Drafts

The right installation crew will make sure that your windows and doors are tightly sealed before they leave. However, a haphazard window and door installation could leave a flimsy seal or gaps in the seal. This can cause issues with drafts in your home, which can be particularly uncomfortable in the cooler months and might also allow pests to visit your home in the warmer months. Most damaging, however, is the spike in your heating and cooling bills. When your home isn’t properly insulated, your heating and cooling must work harder to keep the space comfortable, and you’ll have to pay for the added energy.

Damage Down the Line

If your windows are installed incorrectly, you could have issues with stress or pressure cracks stretching from one side of the window to the other. Additionally, wood doors might form cracks or might swell from the pressure of a poor fit. Poor installation can make your windows and doors more susceptible to damage, which makes your home more susceptible to repairs or even future replacements, and the costs can add up.

Window Condensation and Water Damage

Have you noticed your windows starting to fog up not long after a window installation? Window condensation tends to occur when the glass of the window is too cold from outside air and meets the warmth of the home’s interior. It’s unattractive, and it can lead to problems with mold and mildew or damage to your window frames. It also could mean that your windows weren’t properly installed or sealed. Water damage to doors could mean that they’re improperly stained or that your door is of poor quality.
