When you’re renovating your home, there are a lot of things you can DIY: painting, staining, even changing light fixtures. But one thing you’ll want to leave to the professionals is replacement window installation.
Windows are one of the most difficult parts of the home to replace, and if you’re not properly trained, there’s a good chance the job isn’t going to be completed correctly. This means wasted time and wasted money. That’s why we recommend leaving window installation to the professionals.
Why Hire a Professional to Install Your Windows?
There are a few steps when installing replacement windows:
- Measuring the spaces your new windows will go
- Carefully removing the old windows
- Installing the new windows
- Restoring the interior plaster, trim, and insulation
- Caulking the exterior to create a weather-tight seal
Falling short on any one of those steps is detrimental to your window’s performance and integrity.
Incorrect measurements and failing to properly caulk the exterior almost always lead to drafts and leaks. These problems can quickly spiral into bigger issues, like increased energy bills due to drafts and drywall damage from leaks.
Incorrect measurements also mean the windows you purchase aren’t likely to fit. Depending on where you purchased your windows, you may not be able to return or exchange them. Now you’ll be paying for your windows twice!
And removing old windows is a big job, especially if your home has siding. You will have to remove the siding to take the old window out, and then replace it when your new windows are installed. That’s a job in and of itself!
Window World’s Factory-Trained Professionals
When our installers arrive at your house, they’ll carefully unload your new windows and measure each window perimeter to ensure your new windows were manufactured to the correct size. Next, they’ll expertly remove your old windows and take the materials to be recycled, if possible. Our installers are trained to complete this with as little damage to your drywall as possible.
Then, they’ll carefully install the new windows, ensuring they’re plumb, level, and square. Once they’re set, they’ll properly caulk the exterior so you don’t have to worry about leaks. At this point, all that’s left is cleanup and inspection! They’ll inspect each new window or door with you to ensure you’re happy with the finished product.
