Why Professional Window Installation Is Worth Every Penny

Monday, March 12th, 2018

The seal and installation of a window is just as important to its performance as the quality of the window itself. This is why Infinity® from Marvin Replacement Windows come with a professional window installation: We want to make sure your home’s new windows come with the high-quality performance and longevity our customers expect.

Even a small crack in a window’s seal can snowball into significant damage over time. Think of a professional installation as an insurance policy on your big upgrade. Even the highest quality windows will disappoint homeowners if poor installation makes them prone to drafts, leaks and poor sound insulation.

At North Georgia Replacement Windows, we take pride in our window installation services by using only the highest quality sealants, flashing, and foam on the market. Our goal is to create a perfect seal that complements your new windows and provides years of protection in any weather conditions.

The Dangers of Poor Window Installation

Improper window installation is certain to invite a host of problems into your home. Moisture is the biggest threat to both your indoor air quality and the life expectancy of the window itself. When the opening around the window isn’t fully sealed to prevent water from leaking inside, moisture can seep into your walls and cause unseen damage. By the time peeling paint and discolorations appear on the wall surrounding the window, significant damage has already occurred.

Over time, mold and mildew can develop around your window, and these growths can release potentially toxic spores into your interior air. These growths can also permanently discolor your interior surfaces, including the window itself. Not to mention mold and mildew can have a negative impact on your health and your family’s health.

Meanwhile, poor window installation facilitates the transfer of heat between the home’s interior and the outside world, resulting in less efficient heating and cooling that raises utility costs for your home. Improper installation of a window can reduce energy efficiency by up to 40 percent.

Proper Installation Preserves the Health and Performance of Your Windows

Professional installations guarantee that every potential opening for air and moisture is sealed with a high-quality, performance-tested sealant. North Georgia Replacement Windows installers go through hours of rigorous training and testing and have access to 18 different installation courses to guarantee quality service and proper installation for every window.

We install and seal our windows with the QUAD® Window and Door System products, which are tested against stronger-than-hurricane-force conditions to ensure every window will hold up in the face of harsh environmental elements. Unlike painter’s caulk, which can dry out and crack with prolonged exposure to the outdoor elements and temperature changes, OSI’s QuadMax sealants are designed to retain their flexibility for years to come. QuadMax sealants are also available in 4,600 different colors, so homeowners can choose a sealant that best suits their existing exterior finish. These sealants are backed by a 15-year limited warranty to guarantee longevity and durability against the elements.

Only OSI certified installers can guarantee a window installation that fully seals every window and protects your home from unseen damage. Contact us today to learn more about our installation services when you purchase Infinity from Marvin Replacement Windows.
