Replacing old windows can really do a number on a home—in a good way. New windows can upgrade curb appeal and give the interior a new style as well. They can reduce heating and cooling costs and increase comfort. And they can protect you from nasty storms if you choose Fort Lauderdale impact windows. These windows are a true investment into your home and, in the past, when it came to home improvement projects, you’ve often purchased the products and then installed them yourself. Should you do that this time? In one word: no. Here are a few reasons why you definitely want to hire a professional to help with impact window installation.
Reason 1: Get The Right Size—Guaranteed
They say to measure twice and cut once, but when you’re talking about windows, if you’ve never measured for them before, you could very well get the wrong size. Once you pop the old window out and recognize that the new window you have to replace it isn’t the right size, what do you do? It’s an ordeal. Hiring professionals to measure and get the exact right window to fit each hole is imperative to how well the project will go later.
Reason 2: Improper Installation Kills Efficiency
Part of the reason you want to get new windows in the first place is likely to upgrade the efficiency on your home. If you install the windows yourself, even a little bit incorrectly, the energy efficiency levels of your home will suffer. You don’t want inefficient windows that are brand new. And the windows won’t perform as the labels promise unless they are completely properly installed.
Reason 3: Factory Warranties Void
You never know what’s going to go wrong with products and if you install impact windows yourself, you automatically void the manufacturer’s warranty. So if any parts break down before their time, that’s on you. Plus, you don’t have an installation warranty at all so if they are installation problems, you have to pay to get that fixed as well. It’s usually cheaper to pay someone upfront to do the job the first time around. Then you keep the factory warranty intact and if anything goes wrong with the install, the professionals take care of that for you as well.
