Warped windows present a number of issues for you and your home. In this post, residential window services provider Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City helps you understand why your wood and vinyl windows have warped and what you can do to remedy that.
Why Windows Warp
Wood or vinyl frames are susceptible to damage due to extreme weather conditions. Heat is the number one reason windows warp over time. Water damage is a known culprit too and can compromise even the most beautiful wood frames. Warped windows can make your home look unsightly and affect its structural integrity, so you need to have them replaced as soon as possible.
Who Can Help You
Sometimes, windows fail due to poor installation practices and low product quality. You need to choose better and look into the backgrounds of contractors in your area. Ask about feedback on their past projects too. Have your windows installed by a professional window installation company, like Renewal by Andersen of Rapid City, whom you can trust.
What You Can Do
Choose windows that were created for durability. Windows built with Fibrex® frames from Renewal by Andersen are a great example. Fibrex was engineered to look like wood but be strong enough to last at least 20 years after installation. It insulates well too, which means they can help you save energy throughout any season. With Fibrex, you can rest assured that your windows will be protected from warping for a long time.
Make sure that you also choose the right replacement window contractor. Renewal by Andersen of Rapid City offers products and services that are guaranteed to look great and last for longer than those offered by our competitors. Our windows are covered by a 20-year warranty on glass, 2-year warranty on installation, and 10-year warranty on all non-glass and non-Fibrex components.
