So you finally did it. You made the decision that it is high time for new windows in your house. Great! Wonderful! That first, most important step is complete. Phew! The decision to replace your old, leaky windows is done. Now comes lots of questions that you need to answer. Like who, what, where and when?
Well, no matter how you answer those four ‘W’ questions, you need to understand a very important aspect of replacing your windows, quality installation materials. You could buy the most expensive and energy efficient windows available, but if they are poorly installed with low-grade installation materials then you may as well have just let your old, leaky windows stay put. You see, shoddy installation with insufficient installation materials will make your new windows perform below their level.
Quality Materials Matter When Installing Windows
When your windows are being installed, there will be small spaces between your window frame and the framing in your window opening. This is normal and expected. These spaces need to be filled with something that will mold to the shape and size of these openings and will provide a sturdy barrier for years to come.
Here at Window Nation, we utilize the WINTeQ windows installation ‘system’. This system is designed to work together to increase the performance of your new replacement windows. It includes the caulking, sealants, insulation and the windows themselves. The use of quality ‘ingredients’ will make a successful installation that will keep your home energy efficient for a long, long time.
Benefits of Quality Sealant and Caulking
The caulking that is used on the outside of your windows is the first line of defense between your home and the outside elements. For this reason we use OSI® QUAD® Window, Door & Siding Sealant. This is a top of the line unique multi-polymer sealant that goes above and beyond the call of duty of a caulking. Some of its unique benefits are:
