To guard against malfunctions and their consequences
First of all, it is important to know that defective or poorly performed work can have adverse consequences on your housing, your finances and your health.
🔎 The most frequent malfunctions and their material and health consequences :
Poor sealing: condensation, moisture infiltration, deterioration of the carpentry, health problem of the inhabitants (breathing difficulties …)
Thermal losses: discomfort and increase in your energy bill
Problems with fixing the window: non-compliance with tolerances (plumb, squaring, alignment …), dimensions of the window not adapted to the opening, lack of flatness.
Reduction in the longevity of the window: faster wear, maneuverability problems
Ventilation of the frame not respected (or not preserved)
Deterioration of the window frame
Drilling and fixing in the lower cross member
Deterioration of the window frame (water infiltration)
Installation of the non-compliant anti-fall device relative to the height of the seat (support bar or guardrail)
Insecurity: risks of defenestration.
Lack of wedging (space between the wall and the frame not respected)
Deformation of the frame
Risks of frame cracking
Poorly realized finishes (overflow of silicone, masonry type painting not realized. )
On the other hand, as the craftsmen carpenters are subject to an obligation of result as part of their contractual commitment (guarantees of perfect completion, biennial and decennial), certain remedies are offered to you in case of malfunctions!
If you are unable to find an arrangement with the craftsman, you can activate the “work damage” insurance, provided that you have contracted it with the service provider company. As a last resort, you can finally file a complaint and initiate legal proceedings. However, be sure to respect a limitation period, between 1 and 10 years!
