Why Professional Window Installations Are More Beneficial

You might be considering a DIY window replacement, but this can be a bit difficult even if you have some home improvement experience. Watching online video tutorials won’t be enough to guarantee a proper installation the way a professional window contractor does, after all. To better understand why a professional window replacement is worth spending, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta shares their insight:

Window Installations

Your Home’s Energy Efficiency is Guaranteed

If you choose to install the windows yourself, you won’t fully guarantee how it can improve your home’s energy efficiency. Since a DIY installation can leave tiny cracks around the frames, you’ll likely get increased air and water infiltration instead. This can result in heating and cooling loss, which means your HVAC will consume more energy to keep your home’s indoors within comfortable temperature levels. 

By getting your windows installed by a professional, you won’t have to worry about compromising your home’s energy efficiency. You’ll instead get a more significant decrease in your monthly heating and cooling costs since the indoor temperatures are retained longer. That also means your air conditioning and heating systems don’t need to consume as much energy! 

Professionally-Installed Windows Last Longer

If you DIY your window installation, there are a lot of things to take care of since you’re in charge of everything involved with the project. This includes handling the transportation and unloading of your new windows, which can be risky if you mishandle them accidentally. But if your replacement windows are handled by a trusted professional, you won’t even have to worry about a damaged frame or a broken window!

They’re Also more Weather-Proof

This is because professional installers make sure that your windows are installed with a proper water barrier between the window and the wall. This is to ensure that the barrier keeps out the weather elements, and installing this yourself won’t guarantee an effective barrier. If your barrier isn’t fully sealed, water will slowly leak through the gaps and cracks. The moisture buildup will slowly rot away the wooden frames of your windows and cause mold growth.
