Like many things around the home, you may consider repairing or maintaining your windows over the years. However, before starting your own DIY project there are some risks associated without proper knowledge. Ensure you’re aware of window products, installation process, and code regulations. But don’t let that deter you from installing new windows. Installing new windows helps establish a home’s visual character, let in light and air, and frame views from inside. We’ve developed a list of the top seven reasons why you should consider hiring an expert for your home’s window installation.
Hiring a professional for window installation means that you can consult with an expert. Discuss your desired results with an expert and they may reveal options you had never previously considered. At Thermo-Bilt Windows this consultation is built into our window installation process.
Sometimes before installing a window you need to resolve other related issues. You don’t want to invest in energy efficient windows only to have a draft because of cracks you didn’t notice along the outer walls.
Professional window installers often have a familiarity with construction, and can more readily identify structural issues. This protects your new windows from potential damage, and ensures you get the energy conservation that you paid for.
Window installation requires specific tools; if you don’t have them you’ll run into difficulty that can affect your window’s function. However, Window installation companies have the necessary high quality, and up-to-date equipment they need to get the job done right.
Having work done on your home can be a real inconvenience. A professional has had a lot more practice than you, and will most likely be able to complete a window installation job much more quickly.
Unless you work in construction or similar industries, you may not be aware of the safety procedures that professionals use. When you consider all that could go wrong with an enormous plate of glass you can imagine why window installation experts have prepared for potential dangers and are well insured.
Material Removal and Cleaning
After we’ve finished with your window installation, Thermo-Bilt Windows will properly dispose of you old windows, along with packaging and associated garbage from your new windows. We make sure to clean the workspace so it looks the same as when we arrived.
Enough work goes into DIY window installation even before the clean up. In a way, hiring a professional saves you from two big tasks, not just one.
If flooding, or a storm damages your windows, insurance companies may try to deny your claim based on a DIY window installation. Some insurance companies have been known to argue that a DIY job was done improperly, and therefore is not covered by insurance.
When you hire a professional it is much harder for an insurance company to claim that the windows were not installed correctly. In that respect, a professional window installation can ensure that you get the compensation owed to you.
Even if you have lots of DIY experience you can still benefit from hiring an expert in window installation.
