Windows

We have found that windows, even as new as 5-7 years, can develop problems rendering them useless. The most common problem is a broken seal which nullifies the efficiency and eliminates the ability to clean the window.

Unreinforced vinyl windows tend to sag over time because glass is very heavy. This can happen as soon as 5 years after installation. When this happens it weakens the window and causes the seal to break faster but it also looks aesthetically unpleasing.

Faded Windows

Manufacturers using subpar materials, like recycled vinyl, can leave homeowners disappointed with their windows. 

Pure vinyl is the only material known not to fade over time. When mixed with recycled plastics there’s no guarantee how your window will look 10 years later.

Big Box Windows

Stand size vinyl windows are widely available at big box stores. The downside to this is not only in the quality of the window, but they require adjustments to the opening that lead to an unsightly finished product
 

You also lose glass surface and part of your view

The installation is 80% of how your window will perform in the long run. Companies and installation crews are known to cut corners on many facets of the job to get it done quickly. Fasteners, insulation, making the frame plumb, and exterior trims are all separate procedures that must be done correctly.
Starting with inadequate insulation, a sub par installation can sometimes take years to rear its ugly head. Improperly insulated and flashed windows will likely grow mold.
