It’s quite tempting—you’re watching DIY videos that tackle window replacement and the guy in the video makes it look so easy, right? Then, you think about the potential savings you can enjoy. After all, you’re quite handy with tools—it shouldn’t be too hard.
Unfortunately, the DIY videos you see online aren’t always what they seem. Many of those video creators have actual window installation experience, making them qualified and well-positioned to do instructional videos in the first place.
There are other reasons why you’d want to decide against replacing your own windows, including the following:
New-Construction Windows From Your Local Home Store Will Not Fit
One of the advantages of working with contractors that specialize in window replacement is that they can manufacture and customize replacement windows based on the window opening’s exact measurements. Over the years, structural movement may have already changed those. Furthermore, the windows installed in your home might have also been customized in the first place, so you can’t find a suitable replacement in home improvement stores.
It’s Difficult to Find a Store That Sell Replacement Windows
Trusted and reliable replacement window manufacturers often only allow their products to be installed by contractors that they have trained and certified. So, if you’re not a contractor yourself, you’ll have a hard time sourcing the right replacement windows.
Window Replacement Is Not Just Replacing a Window
Window replacement takes more than just the replacement itself. You’ll have to look at and take care of several other factors. These include removal of the old windows, proper disposal of discards including the old windows, weatherstripping and insulation, among many others. Are you sure you’re ready for all that?
