What problems are easy to ignore in the acceptance

  • Detail

In house inspection, problems of doors and windows continue to emerge. There are different degrees of defects in design, construction and installation details, which has become a common problem faced by house owners at present. If these problems are not found and rectified in time, they will bring trouble to the owner in the future. The editor summarizes six hot issues that are easy to be ignored during the acceptance of doors and windows for the owner

◆ the size of the designed doors and windows is out of specification

the preliminary design is unreasonable, and it is often difficult to rectify in the later stage, which will also bring inconvenience to the owner's future life. For example, the design of doors and windows has strict requirements in the specification, but in the process of house inspection, it was found that the doors and windows of some buildings were not designed according to the requirements, leaving problems for the owners' later decoration or life. For example, the door opening of a new house of a resident is too narrow, with a width of only 76 cm, which does not meet the requirements of the code for residential design that the minimum door opening width is 90 cm

when the owner accepts the house, he should bring a tape measure to measure whether the size of the door opening and window are consistent at any time. Once there is a problem in the design, he should find the developer to take remedial measures in time

◆ there is no drain on the bottom frame of doors and windows

another prominent design defect is that there is no drain on the bottom frame of doors and windows, which has occurred in many buildings. If it is not found and rectified in time, in rainy days, rainwater seeps into the bottom frame of doors and windows and cannot be discharged in time, forming ponding, corroding the door and window frame and shortening the service life of doors and windows

if the owner doesn't check when inspecting the house, this installation problem will be left to the owner, and the problem will be found after the decoration is checked in. Who will he go to at that time? Therefore, the owner should carefully inspect every part of the house during the inspection, and timely require the developer to rectify any problems found

◆ there is no drip line on the top of the construction window

some parts of the doors and windows have special construction requirements, and must be constructed in place according to the regulations. If it is on the outer edge of the window, it is required to make a drip line to prevent rain from flowing into the windowsill or indoor wall. However, in the process of house inspection by the house inspector, it was found that water seepage into the house occurred in many buildings because the window edge did not make a drip line as required. If it is not rectified in time, the rain will follow the window edge indoors in rainy days in the future. Over time, it is inevitable that the wall is wet, moldy and hairy

the leakage problem has a great impact on the decoration and future life of the house. Doors and windows are also one of the sources of leakage of the house. The owner must carefully inspect the house when he takes it in, leaving no hidden leakage hazards

◆ sealant is missing between door and window frames and walls

according to the code for quality acceptance of Building Decoration Engineering, the gap between metal door and window frames and walls should be filled and sealed with sealant. However, the house inspector found that the doors and windows of many buildings either missed sealant or the sealant was incomplete. This not only affects the airtightness of doors and windows, but also when it rains, rainwater is easy to penetrate into the first network of interior decoration from here, damaging interior decoration

such problems are often ignored by owners when they collect their houses. They are not found until after the decoration and check-in. The trouble is great, and the developers must be required to apply sealant again

◆ the lower frame of the window sash is not installed with safety glass

for safety reasons, there are also rigid regulations on the installation of window glass. According to the regulations on the administration of building safety glass, safety glass must be used for glass whose bottom edge is less than 50 cm from the final decoration surface. Nowadays, many house types are designed with floating windows, but it is difficult to find 3C logo on the fixed glass under the floating windows, which is not safety glass, and there are potential safety hazards

the door and window glass is related to personal safety. If the owner cannot see the 3C logo on the fixed leaf glass under the bay window, he must ask the developer to show the certificate or material incoming inspection certificate. If it cannot be proved to be safety glass, it must be replaced

◆ deformation of doors and windows

such as sunken window frames, damaged door frames, scratches on door leaves, etc., these are caused by workers' carelessness in the installation process, or by not paying attention to the protection of finished products late in the installation. These problems may affect the appearance at least, or cause the doors and windows to fail to close, which is a potential safety hazard. Even if there is slight deformation of doors and windows, they should be repaired in time, otherwise the deformation will increase over time, which will not only affect the appearance, but also cause problems in the use of doors and windows
