Reasons for Avoiding DIY Window Installation

Whether it’s installing a dishwasher or working on a larger home renovation project, do it yourself (DIY) projects are everywhere. It’s tempting to take on some of these projects to save money. But, when it comes to projects like window replacement, it’s not a good idea to do it yourself. Here are some of the main reasons why.

#1: The project will be less than best.
Homeowners sometimes think they can easily remove an old window and just pop in a new one. However, this is simply not the case. Usually, DIY window installation projects are harder than originally anticipated. Other times, the job simply won’t be completed as precisely as it could be. It’s common for homeowners to start the project then realize that they are in over their heads. So, if you want the windows to look and function at their best, hiring our team of professionals is key.
#2: Mistakes can get expensive.
Mistakes with DIY window projects are common. Without the right skill and training for replacing windows, you could make some expensive mistakes and not even know it. Improper installation could create leaking windows that  not only leak energy out the window, but also leak water in. This might causelong term damage to your home with mold or dry rot. All of this translates to wasted dollars.
#3: Installation isn’t up to industry standards.
Certain home improvement projects require building codes. And, if you don’t get the proper paperwork done, you could be looking at a fine later down the road. Our experienced installers are professionally trained to install windows according to proper building codes that are outlined by the state and city.
