“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin could not have spoken any truer words which resonate over so many different industries.

Our most recent window replacement project, located in the Cedarfield subdivision of Huntersville began with a consultation with the homeowners after they had an unsatisfactory experience with another company which replaced 3 or 4 windows on the rear of their home and ended with them hiring us to install Simonton Vinyl Windows with inset grids on the front of the home. Their chief complaints regarding the newly replaced rear windows were excessive air leaks around the frame of the window and their overall lackluster appearance.
Upon our inspection, we discovered all of the new windows suffered from poor installation. Not only did they incorrectly measure the window areas but had also made poor use of the sash kits (which come with all windows) plus spray foam to attempt to fill in and cover up their shoddy workmanship. When we shared these details with the homeowners they responded, “That’s why they leak so bad!”
For window replacement projects, selecting the most qualified contractor with extensive experience in the details of installation is vital. Proper installation practices ensure the correct “seating” of the window casings and quality finishing techniques around the casings to prevent air leaks while maintaining and preserving your home’s architectural style.
Having performed hundreds of initial evaluations of existing windows over the years, we’ve encountered countless examples of “contractor laziness” or just plain inexperience, where homes have either incorrectly measured dimensions of the windows, or windows which are too small for the spaces. In these cases the original installer “compensated” by using excessive amounts of foam or caulking to fill in the space, causing big problems as the caulking degrades over time such as energy loss, poorly insulated areas around the frames and even foggy windows where moisture has invaded.
We take the time to measure window openings properly, and finish around the window the correct way for a quality job the first time around. This means using vinyl coated aluminum which is cut and bent to custom to fit the space AND making the casings neat and flush—- including the bottom sill in the corners. In the world of window replacement, details matter…and we pay attention to every last one of them, to which these elated Huntersville homeowners can attest. The end result of this window replacement project is a beautiful home enhanced by high quality windows which were installed with the precision of a professional team.
