WINDOW INSTALLATION PART 1: CHOOSING PROS OVER DIY

Many homeowners are often torn between a do-it-yourself (or DIY) approach or hiring an installer when it comes to home improvement projects. While DIY home remodeling may look easy when following a guide on television or in books, this does not always translate over to real life. It is important to know which jobs you can do yourself and which projects are best left to the pros.

Window Installation Part 1 Choosing Pros Over Diy

The cost savings may be enticing to some, but if your skills and expertise are not up to par, any unsound or improperly done work can be costly and dangerous to correct. It’s always better to hire a professional when undertaking any project requiring permits, licenses, or building code compliance. Some repair projects such as HVAC, for instance, require special requirements only professionals could provide.

So why is working with an expert installer more advantageous than the DIY approach?

Skills and Expertise

Installers often have the skills and expertise needed to undergo any home improvement project, moreso if the said company has been in the business for several years already. They undergo specialized training and carry with them the needed tools to work with any kind of installation projects, from roof replacements to installing windows and more. In addition, homeowners with busy schedules may take longer to accomplish their project.

Safety and Security

Accidents happen anytime, anywhere. Construction projects are even more accident-prone areas. Working with an installer gives you peace of mind that your home and the construction team are protected through established protocols and safety procedures practiced. Even when accidents cannot be completely eliminated, at least you won’t have to worry about additional costs. Which brings us to the next and perhaps most important reason.

Warranties and Insurance

Installers will typically come with insurance, both for the benefit of the homeowner and the company itself. In the unlikely but unfortunate event that something was to happen onsite, the insurance policy or warranty is there to offset any cost or damage. It is the job of any installer to fix your doors or windows, for instance, and not break them. Insurance and warranty clauses exist just in case.

Curiosity may drive certain homeowners to try their h and with a DIY home improvement project. While some are successful, not everyone has the time or skills to h andle all aspects that go into these projects.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
