DO-IT-YOURSELF VS. PROFESSIONAL WINDOW REPLACEMENT

Window replacement should be done right the first time. Some homeowners, however, will attempt to replace their windows on their own. Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, a premier windows company in the area, explains why it’s better to entrust window installation to the pros.

Do It Yourself Vs Professional Window Replacement

Workmanship

Without prior knowledge and experience, it will be difficult to remove your old windows and install new ones. In fact, you may end up damaging the window units if you don’t handle them carefully. Instead of doing it on your own, work with the experts to avoid the risks of botched window installation.

Product Performance

You want your new replacement windows to perform as promised. This, however, won’t be the case when you attempt to install them by yourself. Plus, improperly installed windows can cause you more trouble in the long run and even result in premature replacement.

Time

Working with a professional window installer means the task will be done on time. They know exactly how to do their job, which makes the task easier. Entrusting the job to them can also help prevent disruptions.

Cost

Many homeowners tend to venture in DIY window replacement because they want to minimize the initial expenses. This is a common mistake, however, that can may cause you to spend more money down the road. Unreliable DIY installation techniques, for instance, can cause your new windows to fail earlier than expected.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
