Read This First Before Attempting a DIY Window Replacement

These days, a quick search on YouTube will yield various videos that show window installation tutorials and guides. It’s tempting to think that this is something you can do yourself. What these videos don’t tell you about, however, are the risks involved in undertaking this project by yourself.

We definitely do not recommend taking a DIY approach to installing replacement windows. You should always contact a professional window replacement contractor for the job. Sure, you’ll save a little bit of money by going the DIY route, but these benefits aren’t worth the risk. Here’s why.

No Warranties

Warranties are essential whenever you’re making a big investment. Warranties protect your windows for years in case of breakage or any other damage.

Most manufacturers, however, require professional installation of their replacement windows before they honor a warranty. If you decide to install the windows yourself (and you happen to not have all necessary licenses), you may forfeit your warranty.

Unforeseen Problems

Video tutorials make it all look so easy, but watching a window being installed and actually doing it are different things. First, you might not have all the tools needed to complete the installation correctly. Secondly, there are many unexpected problems that can arise during a DIY replacement.

What should you do if you remove the old windows and see that the wall has been damaged by rot, or the surroundings are no longer structurally sound? A professional will have all the tools, expertise and experience necessary to finish the job cleanly and thoroughly.

Injury

Finally, installing replacement windows can be dangerous if you don’t have the proper training and experience. Not only do you run the risk of damaging your home, you could also seriously hurt yourself without the proper equipment and safety measures.
