The frame is installed in the window opening andfixed there with anchors. Installation of a plastic window should be carried out with a check of a flat arrangement along the vertical and horizontal. The minimal deviation threatens in the future the incorrect operation of the structure, the breakdown of individual elements and other things. Then you have to repair the plastic window, but to fix its location is no longer possible. The allowable deviation from the horizontal and vertical - no more than 1.5 mm per 1 m.

After fixing the frame with anchorsSealing of seams. This is done using a mounting foam. It should be noted that at low temperatures it is necessary to use a special winter variant, which does not lose its properties in the frost. Sealing the structure increases its heat and sound insulation properties. But the mounting foam is unstable to external influences, especially to the sun's rays, eventually loses its properties, collapses. To avoid this, you should immediately perform the finishing both outside and inside the window.

Most often, the seams are treated with a special siliconesealant or tape PSUL (polyurethane self-expanding sealing tape). In the future, the latter is covered with an ebb (outside) and slopes and a window sill (inside).

The final stage is plasteringcrevices between the windowsill and the wall, sealing of minor defects, cleaning from dirt, dust. Installation of PVC plastic window is finished. Now you can enjoy the new beautiful view of the apartment!
