DIY projects are everywhere. Homeowners undertake a massive project on their own without the help of professionals. Why? Mainly to save money. They may also believe that they can perform a DIY job as good as the experts. We’re not here to debate that point. We often find, however, that several issues arise when homeowners try to replace the windows in their home. We explain some of these issues below and why you should hire a certified, experienced window company for a window replacement.


Less Than Satisfying Results

Our contractors get called in from time to time to finish a DIY project because a homeowner didn’t get the results they were looking for. In some cases, the project trainwrecks and the homeowner needs someone to correct the problems. The reason why homeowners are less than satisfied is that they see the photos of finished windows and wonder why their project didn’t look like that. Experienced window contractors, however, have seen finished products time and again. So we know precisely what a completed project should look like. You’ll know when a project is finished because the results will satisfy you 100%.


Mistakes are Costly

It’s simple. If you don’t have the training and skill necessary to replace a window in your home, you’re going to lose thousands of dollar in mistakes along the way. Improper installation and creating an inefficient environment that causes your energy bills to skyrocket. In the end, the money saved doing the job yourself will wind up costing you far more than you ever realized. Hiring a pro contractor from Window World will save you countless dollars both initially and down the road.


Residential Building Codes

Pop quiz: Are your windows up to code? Could you answer that question on site? If your project is not up to code, you could be looking at construction fines, redos when selling your home, or worse, a break-in or structural failure due to an inadequate installation. The reason why our installers have to be certified is that a certification program enforces us to install windows according to local, state, and national building codes. We also have to install products better than industry standards. There’s a difference between doing an okay job and a superior job. We always strive for the latter.
