There’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything, and replacement windows are no exception. If you’re considering replacement windows, make sure you know what’s true and what’s not about the process. We’ll go over common misconceptions here to prepare you for your window project.
Misconception #1: Installing windows yourself is easy
Unfortunately, it’s just not true. For experienced professionals who work with replacement windows on a daily basis, yes, window installation can be a breeze. But even they can encounter situations which require experience to be able to manage properly. To install replacement windows yourself is to risk an improper installation, which could result in the need to hire a professional to fix mistakes. It’s much better, and cheaper, to hire a professional in the first place to get the job done correctly.
Misconception #2: Replacement windows are a major construction process
Although you don’t want to try to do it yourself, you’d be surprised how quickly a replacement windows project can be completed by a professional crew. It doesn’t require any major construction on your home, and generally speaking no alterations need to be made to existing structure. Considering the many benefits of replacement windows, the minor installation construction is entirely worth it. Your contractor will be able to tell you the specifics of what’s involved for your home.
Misconception #3: The only option is vinyl
Vinyl windows are a great replacement windows choice, but not the only option. Just because it’s used for many replacement window projects doesn’t mean you have to choose vinyl. In fact, there are many replacement window options such as aluminum, wood, and more. Ask your contractor about your options, and they can help you choose the best one for your taste and a best fit. Be sure to mention anything important to you, such as color, energy efficiency, and function.
