Working on renos is a popular pastime and with spring on its way, you might be looking ahead to a few of your own. Installing or replacing windows is something you might be tempted to do yourself, but first consider the benefits of a professional installation. Here are the top three reasons to hire a pro.
Guaranteed Professional Results: A professional installer has lots of knowledge and experience when it comes to replacing windows. A pro knows how to measure properly for a new or replacement window and can work efficiently. Choose someone who understands your window product and can properly order and install it, as well as avoid any problems that might arise.
No Clean Up: Part of a good installer’s commitment is to leave your premises as they were before installation, which means removing all construction debris and leaving the work area clean. They can even dispose of your old windows, if you wish.
Protection: If there’s a warranty issue, it’s usually due to either the product or the installation. Because a professional installer has extensive experience with preparing and installing windows within a building envelope, it’s reasonable to expect your installer will be the most qualified and trustworthy person to do the job and to process any warranty requests should a problem arise.
