Window replacement shouldn’t be done hastily, the repercussions from a “good deal”, fast installation, or the cheapest bid can be very costly in the long run. We have worked with dozens of home owners that had replaced their windows only to find that they have more problems now, than they had originally. And no matter how good the windows are, if cheap, fast installation methods are used you could end up with leaks. When choosing your contractor make sure they give you the manufacturers’ installation guide lines for installing the new windows and make sure that he follows them. Another good idea is to check with your local building officials to make sure that the contractor is meeting the wire lath and building paper overlap requirements.
