Installing windows is typically an expensive project. That is why you should be careful in selecting the contractor you’re going to hire.
Ensure they’re qualified and experienced. It also helps to read reviews written by their past customers. But if you have already enlisted the services of a contractor, and the work is finished, there are a few signs that could tell you if they’ve done a terrible job.
Your window should be sealed tight so there should be no water or air seeping through it. If you notice a draft when you walk by your window, it could mean there is insufficient insulation. This could consequently mean higher energy bills for you.
Messy caulking could only mean one thing – your contractor cut corners. Caulking is important as it weatherproofs and seals your window. Without its proper application, leaks could eventually occur.

Condensation is usually a sign of either a broken seal or improper window installation. It could also be due to a combination of both: the seal was broken while the window was being installed.
If you find it hard to open and close your window, that’s definitely a bad sign. Something is wrong with your window, and you should have a professional address the issue. Leaving your window in such a bad state could only worsen, and your window might become completely inoperable.
Look out for these signs, and don’t hesitate to reach out to the contractor who completed the job. Find out if they’re willing to fix their work, or you can go straight to a reputable window installer to see what should be done.
