Avoid DIY Replacement Window Installation

By February 14, 2022No Comments

When you have spent time looking at the details for replacement windows in South Jordan, UT, it’s wise to finish the process with a professional installation. Yes, pro installation is going to cost more, but it’s worth your investment. Here are a few reasons why you are going to want to avoid DIY replacement installation. You also don’t want to have friends, family members, neighbors, or anyone less than professional run the installation process.

Warranties Void

When you have someone other than a direct professional install your windows, you are automatically voiding out the warranty that came with those windows. You might not be worried about that warranty right away, but in the future, it’s nice to have those warranties backing up things that could go wrong. When you have DIY installation, you no longer have the warranty available. You may as well rip it up and throw it away.

Dangers To You

Professionals know what they are doing with the window equipment and tools. But you, as someone who doesn’t run these installations on a normal basis, could be in danger. Windows are heavy and the equipment is specialized. You could be in danger of hurting yourself and that’s not something you want to have to deal with when you are trying to complete a project.

Damage To The Windows/Home

While you want everything to work well with the installation, since you don’t know exactly what you are doing, you could damage the windows in the process, not to mention your home. When that happens, you are going to be on the hook for buying new windows, fixing the damage, or undoing whatever it is that you did. It’s not something you want to risk.

Poor Performance

If the windows go in well enough, you might still regret the DIY decision later because those windows may not perform nearly as well as you had hoped. They have a certain performance level that you appreciated, and that’s why you got them. But if they aren’t installed just right, you aren’t going to get the performance you need. Since you paid for the windows, and the performance you wanted from them, it’s a bummer when you don’t get what you wanted.

Added Expenses

Things may not go as you wanted and that’s going to end up costing you more to have things fixed. You might have to have the professionals come in later to fix what went wrong or to assess what went wrong in the first place. It could end up costing you more than an initial installation would have in the first place.
