- Double glazing – no packers used, how big an issue?
Depends on the profile of the frame.
Are the units central in the aperture? Not a big deal to have no packers.
Are the units sitting in water in drain channels? I’d want spacers in to keep them out of any standing water areas.
My bigger worry is which other corners have been cut, lintels, cavity closers and mechanical fixings especially.

The packers are used to keep the unit from sitting in water which breaks down the seals quicker. They are also used to toe and heel a window basically if he has not done this on any of your opening Windows once theframes drop which tthey will over time you won’t be able to stop them hitting the run up blocks or frame. the packers do need to go in.

We used a builder who’s now in jail.
A few months back we had a double glazed unit spontaneously crack and on getting it replaced it turned out there were no packers underneath the unit.
Having checked all the windows that were fitted it turns out non of them have packers.
Is there a risk that the unit could be damaged if we get some packers fitted or would folk just leave it be?Posted 4 years ago
