When buying replacement windows make sure that the window company that you choose to work with is able to actually produce all the custom sized windows that your home requires. It may sound like a simple point but when some companies install windows but the windows that are being installed are several inches too small for the prepared existing window opening it causes the installers to put additional padding or spacers around your window. This shrinks the overall viewable area of your windows!
Rightly measured and manufactured window sizes will not require additional padding to be added all around the window. This kind of problem can easily go unnoticed at first by most homeowners but they will have just purchased ‘incredibly-shrinking-windows’.
If too small of a window gets installed into a window’s prepared opening the anchoring the window can also be partially or severely compromised depending on the craftsmanship of the installer. But this work is usually covered up with trim and additional padding around the window which would obscure inspection of the installation work done. At Zen Windows, we are committed to getting precise measurements to deliver to you precisely the right window for each opening in your home.
Some homeowners may count their windows and assume that the sizes are the same, but usually during construction, there are some variations that can occur and we make sure to discover these before we make any assumptions when having your windows constructed at our manufacturer, Soft-Lite.
Not only does this present problems for the above mentioned factors but also compromises the intended energy efficiency of the window if portions of the surrounding window are not installed to properly fit into the space available.
With Zen Windows you will find our process is very well-defined. While we are able to simplify the discussion of purchasing the windows via simple quoting process on the web followed by a quick phone call for the verification of the details—none of the windows are ordered from the manufacturer until after we complete a careful measure by our installation foreman.
