In today’s world of “Do It Yourself” projects, it’s easy to see why so many Phoenix homeowners are tempted to do their window and door replacements themselves. In theory, it would seem like DIY replacement projects would save money and time. Unfortunately, when it comes to your windows and doors, the opposite is true. To save you plenty of time, money, and headache we’ve put together a list of reasons why it’s so important to leave window and door replacements to the professionals.
1. Say Goodbye to Energy Efficiency
Many homeowners spend a good deal of money buying the perfect energy efficient windows and doors for their home, and for good reason. The right energy efficient windows and doors can save you hundreds on your monthly energy bill and can even increase the resale value of your home. There’s one caveat to this concept, however. Even the most energy efficient windows won’t do anything for your home if they aren’t properly installed. Window and door professionals know exactly how to install your windows so there aren’t any gaps or drafts formed in the process. While you may think you installed your windows correctly, there is no way for you to know if you’re really getting the most out of those energy efficient windows.
2. It May Cost You More in the Long Run
While it may seem like an easy enough task to install your windows and doors yourself, you would be surprised how many homeowners damage the material, the frame, or both trying to force it into place. Not only does this mean all of your efforts were a waste of time, you now have to spend even more money buying replacement parts and hiring a professional to repair any damage you may have done.
3. It’s Not Safe for You or Your Family
Your windows and doors are the easiest ways for outside threats to enter your home. While you may be trying to save money by doing your replacements yourself, any error made in the process just makes it easier for break-ins to occur. When it comes to your safety or your budget, it’s always best to hire a professional and hold on to your peace of mind.
