Can I Perform My Own Replacement Window Installation? July 2, 2018

Can I Perform My Own Replacement Window Installation?, Snow Hill, Missouri

Doing home improvement projects yourself can save money and give you the satisfaction of a job well done. Not all home improvement projects are well-suited for DIY, however. A replacement window installation, for example, isn’t as straightforward as it seems and carries several expensive risks. While the short answer is yes, you can install replacement windows yourself, what you really need to ask yourself is whether you should.

Is DIY Window Installation Possible?

Yes, it is possible for homeowners to handle their own replacement window installation, but this type of project isn’t recommended for those with little to no knowledge about windows in general. There’s a lot you must know to ensure you take proper measurements and order the correct size. During installation, you have to take extra precautions to avoid breaking any of the windows and ensure you get a water-tight seal to avoid leaks. If you drop one and the glass breaks, you have to pay for a replacement, as there’s no labor warranty when you do it yourself. If you make any mistakes, you could void the manufacturer warranty too.

When to Call in the Pros

It may cost a little more than doing it yourself, but you’ll get peace of mind knowing it was done correctly. If the installers offer a warranty, you can feel more at ease knowing they’ll fix any problems at no additional charge. Even if you’re confident in your window installation abilities, there are a couple of other instances when you should hire an expert. If you’re replacing windows on a second (or higher) story, it’s safer to let the experts handle this. Additionally, if your home was built before 1978, there’s a risk of lead paint, which should be handled by a team of professionals to minimize you and your family’s risk of illness.
