Inspecting Your Replacement Windows

replacement windows in Frisco TX

When you are ready to get replacement windows Frisco, TX, it can be very exciting to get through all of the details and make it to the installation part of the process. The installers from the window stores are professionals and they are the only people you want to install your windows. If you do the install yourself, or use someone that is less than a professional, you might be in for a headache or two—or even three. The windows may not perform as you’d hoped and they might not be installed right. Plus, the warranties you get from the manufacturer will be null and void. Once you have the windows installed, with a true professional, you will still want to walk around the house and inspect them. Here are a few things you can do.

Run Your Hand Over The Windows

You will want to feel the windows for any rough spots. If you feel something sticking out where it shouldn’t or your hand catches on a piece, you might want to ask the installers about that. They might be able to smooth that out before they leave. And, really, you shouldn’t feel anything at all.

Feel For Air

On your old windows, you were likely able to put your hand up to the window and feel the breeze coming through the windows and into your house. When you get the new windows installed, it’s nice to hold your hand up to the windows and feel nothing. You no longer have a breeze! If you feel anything, something is horribly wrong and you will want it corrected right away. Chances are you feel nothing and that’s a wonderful change.

Visually Inspect

There are some things about your new windows that you might see with your naked eye. Does something look off? There’s no harm in asking about it. In fact, it’s better to ask than to regret not doing so later. Take a look at each individual window and if anything looks off, bring it up before the installers head off.
