Everything must be treated with a special protective agent or insulating tape to prevent the formation of cold bridges. If the walls of buildings have a high moisture factor, the installation sites must be treated especially carefully. High-quality window installation is performed using special window anchors. If the windows are installed by the customer himself, it is best to buy these fasteners from a dealer together with the windows.
