Tips for how to get the best window fit

Since we’ve already got you thinking about windows, let's frame that in and get talking about installation! The old hat of measure twice and cut once even goes for window installations! This means verifying measurements before you start so that you’re ready with the best supplies for the snuggest fit. Taking out the old frame isn’t always necessary but repairing or replacing it can prevent problems with the new window, like condensation and heat loss. Using quality shims and not just wood scraps for positioning the window helps to get the best fit, which means making sure the window is secure, square, and plum. Lastly, with caulking, remember too much and it won't be flexible and if there isn’t enough it won’t stick or seal properly.
