Why You Should Hire a Contractor to Replace Your Windows

Getting new windows is exciting! You improve both the look and energy efficiency of your home. With so many DIY websites on the internet, many homeowners feel as if they can do it themselves. Yet a windows replacement project is a large endeavor, and any mistake can lead to catastrophic results and added expense. Learn why you should trust an experienced window contractor to handle your next window installation project.

Replace Your Windows

Knowledge and Experience

A window contractor has years of replacement experience. More than likely, the crews have come across nearly every type of window and potential issue. For example, most homes don’t have square window openings. As houses age, openings can settle and change. As a homeowner, you may not know that you need to install shims to correct this problem.

Necessary Tools

If you must go out and buy or rent every tool that you need for a window replacement job, then you might be cancelling out the cost savings that you are getting by doing it yourself. A contractor already has the necessary tools, and the installers already know how to use them. This reduces the risk of accidents or incorrect installation.


Most contractors will provide warranties on both the product and the installation. Any complications with replacement windows typically arise from the installation. If you’ve done the installation yourself, then the fault lies with you and the windows may not be warranted. You will have to spend extra time fixing the window and hope that the faulty installation didn’t result in damage to the new windows.
