3 Ways Replacing Your Own Windows Could Ruin Your Home
As home improvement projects can often be both timely and costly, it’s understandable why you may consider the idea of installing new windows yourself.
We’re going to stop you right there.
While this may seem like a strategic move for the better, installing your window replacements without a professional can lead to expensive and potentially dangerous mistakes. Let’s look at some reasons why you should leave your window installation to the professionals – for your benefit.
1. It can raise your energy bill costs
One reason many families choose to replace their windows is to improve their homes energy efficiency. Unfortunately, even the most energy efficient windows will not be effective if they are not properly installed.
Any little space left in between your walls and your windows allows your heating and air conditioning to fly out the window—literally.
Paying a professional to install your windows may cost you more upfront, but ensuring your windows are properly installed with a snug fit can save you from losing even more money on your utility bill in the long run.

2. You can risk the safety of your family and your home
Windows that are not correctly installed can make break ins a lot easier. Most window installation jobs also require complicated security systems that can be difficult to set up accurately without a professional.
For the safety of your family and the security of your home, this is a job you want done right.

3. Professionals know the right products – and how to spot signs of trouble
A successful home improvement project doesn’t start with the installation: first, you must choose the right products. Without the proper research and know-how, it can be easy for an amateur to select the wrong type of window for their home. Replacing one inefficient window with another is a waste of time and money.
Professionals know which type of material is right for your home, which model is the best for your energy efficiency needs, and which style is best suited for you.
Hiring a professional for a window replacement project can also help you spot other signs of trouble in your home. If your windows aren’t helping to control the climate or moisture levels in your home, you could have a bigger problem on your hands (like mold). During installation, a professional will be able to check the signs of a potential health threatening problem that you and your family may not be able to recognize.
Ultimately, hiring a professional for your window replacements could save you costly, time consuming and potentially dangerous mistakes!
