Trust us, we get it. It can be tempting to turn your window installation Carlsbad, CA into a DIY project in hopes of saving a bit of cash. Unfortunately, handling the window installation for your San Diego home can lead to a laundry list of problems. While the job may sound like an ideal home improvement project, it can end up costing you more time, money and headaches than you were hoping. To help you get a better understanding of why the job is best suited for a professional, we’ve put together a short list of real life problems that homeowners often face while attempting to install their own windows.
Are you sure that’s the right model?
If you’re following an online blog or guide, chances are it’s not as up to date as you would like. It could very well be lacking necessary information that professionals have access to. This means knowing which frames have been recalled, are no longer in the market, or have known long-term issues. Without speaking with a professional about the right frame, you’re risking investing in a model that isn’t the right fit for your home.
Do you have the right touch?
Window experts spend years learning the right method to properly install a window without damaging the frame. You may be surprised to find just how many homeowners are a bit too rough with their windows, damaging the frame and preventing a proper installation from occurring. Not only will you have to call a window expert to install the window later, but you’ll also need to pay for the frame to get repaired. Sadly, the end result will cost you more than if you just hired a professional the first time.
Bye, bye energy efficiency
You spent a great deal of time researching the perfect energy efficient window model to help you reduce your carbon footprint and your monthly utility bills and finally you found the right match! Unfortunately, those energy efficient windows are just plain old windows if you haven’t properly installed them. Even the tiniest gap in the frame will negatively impact the energy efficient capabilities of your windows. Don’t waste your investment with a poor insulation job!
