It’s tempting to take on a windows installation project by yourself. After all, you already have the replacement windows fully fabricated, all that’s left to do is to remove the old one and put the new one in its place. However, there’s more to installing new replacement windows than what a few Youtube tutorials and home improvement articles usually let on and this is why it’s always a good idea to entrust the job to a more experienced professional.
The advantages of a DIY window replacement might make it seem like it’s worth giving a try. But if you consider the potential cost of redoing the project because of a mistake, the total amount of time it will take, as well as a number of other reasons, it’s actually more practical to call in the pros. Let our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island explain why a window replacement is not a DIY job.
On average, it takes a professional just about a day to fully install replacement windows. Depending on the number of windows, the job can extend up to 3 days. Meanwhile, even the most enterprising and handy homeowner averages around a week to finish a full window replacement. Considering the amount of time you’ll save and the headaches you avoid, it’s definitely better to simply hire a professional.
The performance of new replacement windows often depends on the quality of their installation. Taking a DIY approach might jeopardize the energy efficiency of your windows. So if your goal is to save money on your energy bills with your windows, it is certainly more advantageous to have a professional install them for you.
Some styles of windows like sliding windows require special attention to make sure they are installed properly. If they are not, they are usually covered by a warranty that protects you from any unforeseen installation problems and warranties are usually only available on the condition that a certified professional handle your installation.
