If you live in a house long enough, you’ll be faced with having to replace the windows. Houses settle, window frames shrink and warp, and window design that once seemed state-of-the-art becomes obsolete. And if you’ve bought an older house with the original windows, you’ll be looking at replacement window installation sooner than later. When the time comes, you might be tempted to do the job yourself, but the wise move is to rely on a professional.
Why Hire a Professional?
Contractors with replacement window installation experience have the know-how and tools to do the job right. This means using quality materials and precise sizing. A pro also can draw on his or her experience to check factors that might affect future window performance, such as the wall the window fits into, and the roof overhang and rain gutters above the window.
The Right Equipment
When you hire a professional carpenter for replacement window installation, you can be confident that he or she will bring the right equipment to the job. If you decide to do it yourself, you may have to rent equipment and tools from a home improvement store, increasing the cost of the do-it-yourself installation. In some cases, it’s just as expensive to rent equipment and do the job yourself as it is to hire a professional carpenter. Most window replacement contractors will remove the old windows and work debris from your home, saving you the trouble of getting rid of it.
A professional window installer should be current on the latest options for high-efficiency windows, which will ensure energy savings over the long haul. Non-efficient windows can lead to substantial energy loss.
