Do-it-yourself projects seem to have taken our country by storm. We are repurposing, repainting, rebuilding machines, thanks to HGTV and Chip and Joanna Gaines. There is something so satisfying about completing a project that brings an area of your home back to life—especially when the project turns out exactly as envisioned or better.
There are boundaries to this DIY craze, however; boundaries such as physical limitations, safety, and training. No matter how much we want to do it ourselves, sometimes hiring a professional is the best route to take. For example whole-home window replacement projects. Here at Lifetime Windows & Doors, we specialize in bringing homes back to life with new quality and beautiful windows and we do need you to be part of the process, but we want to keep you and your home safe from the repercussions which can come with DIY window projects. Let’s review, together, why hiring a Lifetime professional is the smarter option for your whole-home window replacement project:
Big projects call for the big dogs (insurance & warranties)
This is an incredible undertaking. Replacing windows in your home as a DIY project usually means you are forgoing any warranty you would otherwise be privileged to have. When you hire a Lifetime professional, your replacement windows are backed by a powerful warranty, the workmanship is backed by a powerful warranty, and should our team accidentally damage something in your home during the installation process, you are covered by our insurance.
Get the job done right the first time
Have you ever taken on a Pinterest DIY project and, upon completion, realized you missed the mark entirely? Starting all over is discouraging, isn’t it? A window replacement project is not one you want to redo.
Safety codes and regulations
A DIY replacement window project will require you to apply and obtain a permit if you plan to add a window where there isn’t current one or widen the space where you will replace. Choosing to have a professional install your windows saves you this bureaucratic hassle.
The right tools
Have you researched what tools you will need to purchase in order to remove and install windows in your home? The list is pretty extensive. Not to mention the added expenses of disposing of the old windows. Further, what will you do with these tools when and if you successfully complete the project? Hiring a professional saves you money on tools you’ll likely never have a use for again.
Efficiency makes the process feel enjoyable
