3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Install Your Own Replacement Windows

April 06, 2020 0

After a long winter in the Great White North, springtime is finally here. If you happen to be a homeowner, you may be chomping at the bit to get started on home improvement projects that you may have put on hold during the cold winter months. Moving forward with a project to equip your home in Brampton, ON with replacement windows is a great idea. But if such a project is on your to-do list, don’t forget to think long and hard about what to do about installation.

Here are 3 reasons why it would be a mistake — potentially of epic proportions — to install your own replacement windows rather than to rely on the expertise of professional installers.

1. You May Lack the Expertise

If you’re not employed in the industry as an installer, you probably lack the skills to install your replacement windows professionally. Sometimes people get the idea that job can be done by any do it yourself type with a toolbox full of tools. You do need to keep in mind, however, that professionals who really know their stuff oftentimes make what they do look easy. In other words, they do what they do so well that it might appear to be a piece of cake. Expert window installers have the experience to do the job correctly so that you can get all the benefits. So it’s best to put your do-it-yourself skills to better use doing other home improvement projects.

2. It Might Take You Ages

If you’re not really sure what to do, you might find that the project drags on forever. Do you have the time and the patience to deal with a project that seems to be never-ending? Also consider that if you take a long time, while at the same time making mistakes, you’ll end up wasting even more time and money if you eventually realize that you really do need to call in the pros. It’s best to save yourself the hassle and let skilled installers put in your replacement windows.

3. Your Warranty Will Go Out the Window

Another important reason why you should have your replacement windows professionally installed is that doing it yourself will void the warranty. Manufacturers and replacement windows stores won’t honor installation or product warranties if you do the installation yourself. You’ll need to choose professional installation if you want to keep your warranty intact. If you patronize a professional replacement window shop, you’ll be well served by getting their installers to do the job.
