3 Mistakes to Avoid During Window Replacement, Newark, Ohio

Installing a window replacement can improve the aesthetics and energy efficiency of your home. but there are important factors to consider to ensure you’re doing the process correctly. Here’s some advice on three mishaps to avoid while replacing your windows.

What Not to Do When Replacing Your Windows

1. Installing the Same Window

Don’t just get a new version of the window you’re replacing. Instead, use this opportunity to take advantage of today’s improved technology by getting a more energy-efficient model to save money on electricity and heating costs.

Additionally, you may want to install a model with a different opening option—such as going from a single-hung window to a crank window—to improve functionality and add style. For instance, homes with double-hung sash windows over the sink may benefit from adding a crank window to make it easier to open and shut. 

2. Not Considering Security

3. Doing It Yourself

Without the proper knowledge and experience, your new window replacement won’t be weatherproof or structurally sound. Your best bet long-term is to have professionals install windows to ensure they’re safely installed and will remain sound for many years to come.

These individuals have the tools necessary for the job—such as appropriate ladders and suction cups—and will handle the installation much faster than homeowners trying to do it themselves. Plus, they won’t place your property or family in danger during the process, as they know how to maneuver glass panes and frames safely with consideration for their environment.
