Operations & Infiltration

The easiest thing we tend to notice break down over time are the parts of the window we use often. We go to secure our window and the locking mechanism breaks, a rock hits the glass, the frames are warping, or the window will not close all the way. We become less secure about the safety of our windows.

The first thing to think about when it comes to your original windows is their builder-grade windows come with a 15-year lifespan, depending on sun exposure. Throughout this timeline, a process called ‘settling’ is occurring with your home. As the weight of the house shifts, it settles in the foundation and compacting the ground below it. Separation occurs from the window and home, new cracks openings for dust, dirt, and energy loss form all around the system.
