Replacement Single Hung Window Installers

While single hung windows are relatively simple to install, if the frame of the window isn’t squared properly, it won’t function as it should. You might still be able to open or close the window, but it will be significantly more difficult. If you’ve ever used a window that was hard to open or close, it’s likely that the frame of the window wasn’t square. Windows go out of square over time from a sagging foundation and other structural issues, but they can be put in that way as well if the replacement single hung window contractor working on the project fails to square the window frame properly.
