Why You Should Hire Professional to Complete Your Window Installation?

Posted April 27, 2021

With the price of window replacements, some homeowners consider doing the installation themselves. While we’re all for DIY projects, some things are better left to the professionals. Window installation is one of them.

Even if you are good with home improvement projects, a quality window installation is a whole different ball game. Not only does this job require technical skills but also it requires a great deal of time. If you’re not prepared, this project could end up taking you weeks or longer!

Let’s cover the many reasons why we don’t recommend tackling a window installation project on your own and why hiring a professional is best.

The project will be completed in a reasonable time, usually 1-2 days.

The total time of your project depends on how many windows are being replaced. But even if you’re having all of your windows done, you should expect your project to take a day or two. Professionals usually install between 10 and 12 windows a day. Their experience also allows the project to move quickly.

Your windows will be installed correctly to avoid leaks.

After putting in the time and money to purchase new windows, the last thing you want is for them to leak. Unfortunately, leaky windows are not uncommon for DIYers. Professional window installers, on the other hand, know about window sizes and have plenty of experience with installation. This eliminates the risk for inefficient and damaging leaky windows.

Broken or damaged windows are not your responsibility.

Professional installers carry insurance that protects the business and you - the customer. Therefore, if there are problems or accidents, the installer will cover them for you. If you’re the one to make a mistake, however, you’ll have to eat the cost of the window and still have to replace it.

You can ensure the correct size of windows.

Even if you have some experience installing windows, it’s possible to order the wrong size. It happens all the time. Professionals know their products well and are aware of the window sizes they need to order. They also know how to work with nonstandard and standard window openings for the best results.

The warranty stays intact.

No matter who installs your windows, they come with a warranty that protects them from defects. You want the warranty to cover both the product and the installation, but you may not get this if you install the windows yourself.  With Woodhaven, we are your one-stop-shop for Andersen Windows, meaning we take care of any necessary warranty work or repairs if you need any help. And since we are a Certified Contractor of Andersen, you will receive and extra year of warranty upon installation.
