Why It’s Best to Have Your Replacement Windows Installed by Professionals
In a time where YouTube videos, Pinterest tutorials and chat boards make any job seem like a DIY project, it’s tempting to install your replacement windows in your Rancho Santo Margarita home yourself. After all, who wouldn’t want to save on hiring a professional? Unfortunately, making replacement window installation a do-it-yourself job can result in you spending more time and money than you anticipated, not to mention the headache that goes with it. To give you an idea of why this is a job best left to the professionals, we’ve created a short list of common DIY occurrences for you to be aware of.
Are You Sure that’s the Right Model?
The problem with finding your information online is that most of the information is catered for one specific situation. Meaning it will be discussing one type of household, with one type of window, which may or may not be the right fit for your home. While the finished product may look good on the blogger’s or youtubers home, it doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for your house. Now factor in the money spent on having to reorder new window parts once you realize it’s not the model you need, and you’re already spending more than planned.
Don’t Push too Hard!
One of the most common mistakes that occur with DIY window projects is homeowners attempting to push their windows into place, and damaging the frame as a result. You may be surprised to find that it takes years to learn how to perfectly install a window, and once you’ve damaged the frame from a poor insulation job, you’ll have to pay twice as much to have the new window installed or the current window repaired.
Your Energy-Efficient Windows Won’t Be So Energy Efficient
You spent hours researching the perfect energy-efficient window model for your home, unfortunately all that research won’t be very useful if your windows are poorly installed. This means even the slightest gap in the frame will remove any insulating properties the windows have, making them just plain (inefficient) windows.
You Don’t Want to Get Stuck
Finally, one of the worst situations that arises from following directions online, is finding that they’re incomplete. There’s no way to tell that a set of instructions has skipped a step or has not addressed a certain problem until you start the project. Unfortunately, once you become stuck there isn’t anyone there to help you out of the situation, which means you’ll ultimately have to hire a professional anyway. Better to save the headache and go the professional route from the beginning.
