Replacing your old, drafty windows with new, energy-efficient units can make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. However, a lot of homeowners try to cut corners in order to save money by taking the DIY route. This often results in more heating and cooling issues as not everyone has the necessary skills and installation techniques to pull off window replacement properly.
Here are some reasons you should leave window replacement to the pros:
Installation Will Take Less Time
A regular homeowner who does not have the required skills and experience will end up taking longer to finish the task as compared to a professional doing the installation. It is also likely that you are busy with work and other chores around the house. A gaping hole in your wall is the last thing you want to leave since it makes your home vulnerable to the elements. A professional window installer will know the ins and outs of window replacement so they are able to complete the project in a timely and efficient manner. Hiring a pro also minimizes the chances of disruption and accidents.
End Results Will Look More Polished
One of the biggest differences between a DIY project and a window company installation is the quality of workmanship that is involved. A poorly installed window can cause plenty of damage to the structure of your home and compromise the comfort inside your living space. For example, if your windows are leaking during a heavy downpour, you will end up with a wet floorboard and a soaking carpet, which you have to clean to avoid mold growth and musky odors. Moreover, installing a window not according to manufacturer’s specifications will likely void your warranty, making you lose out on coverage.
You Have Protection In Case There Is a Problem
Working with a reputable contractor will lessen the likelihood of the installation process being amiss. Keep in mind that professional work is usually covered by a warranty to help cover losses and other important expenses necessary to fix your windows. Manufacturer warranties will also be in place for window replacement done by a professional.
