 Re: Draft coming through new vinyl windows

Author: Turk182 (---.burl.east.verizon.net)
Date:   

windowman2000 brings up a big point, check the jamb adjusters and make sure they are snug...it makes a difference.

Also, in regards to noise levels, Vinyls are better then the old wooden windows, but you will still hear noises and some times echoing/wind tunnel sounds...even if they are installed right. By keeping the storm window on the outside, it fully eliminates the sounds..I put new vinyl storm windows on the outside of the replacement windows I installed and I cant even hear a dog barking....but prior to that, they were still quite noisy.
