So you’ve finally decided to replace your old or damaged windows with some Kenmore, WA replacement windows. You’ve tallied up the cost of the windows, have figured out the cost to install them and are left wondering if you should save some money by installing them yourself. If you’re a DIY superstar who’s done window replacements before and if you’re the person who family and friends turn to for home renovation help, then perhaps you can handle the task.
But the truth of the matter is that most people don’t have the skills to properly install their own windows. When you consider that replacement windows aren’t cheap and that they can provide lots of benefits if installed right, the last thing you’ll want is to mess things up with a bad install. Here are some reasons why it’s best to bring in a professional to install your windows.
They Bring Experience
It goes without saying that a professional contractor knows everything there is to know about replacing windows. Even if you’ve done it before, you don’t necessarily know what you’ll see when you remove the old window. You might encounter something that leaves you scratching your head. Not so for a professional contractor who has done lots of window installations. A skilled installer will know what to do to ensure that your windows are put in right the first time.
They Bring Peace of Mind
Letting a professional contractor do it will give you peace of mind. The professional has the experience, the skillset and the tools of the trade. With all of your other responsibilities in life, it pays to outsource tasks that someone else can do better. You’ll also be able to rest easy knowing that your warranty is safe and sound. If you install the windows yourself, the specialty retailer who sells you the windows won’t be nearly as generous with a warranty. The reason, of course, is that the retailer can’t assume that you’ll install the windows correctly.
They Protect Your Investment
Do you want replacement windows because your old ones are no longer very energy efficient? Are your old ones broken or damaged? If you do spend to upgrade your windows, why take shortcuts by skipping a professional installation? Taking such a shortcut can shortchange you in terms of benefits you’re looking for in your replacement windows. So paying to have the windows installed by a contractor will give you all the benefits you paid for.
