The Dangers of DIY Window Installation

When it comes to home renovations, DIY (do-it-yourself) projects are all the rage these days. Now more than ever, people are reluctant to hire a professional when they feel like they can get the job done on their own. What most people don’t consider, however, are the dangers of DIY projects like window installation. Below are a few points to consider before attempting to install new windows on your own.

It’s labor-intensive. You may not realize it, but replacing windows is hard work. In fact, installing heavy, thick windows is certainly too much work for just one person. Even if you have an extra set of hands, inexperience can make window installation very dangerous. By hiring an expert, you can avoid injury and damages.

Older homes may contain harmful substances. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), “If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint.” The lead inside this paint is a common cause of lead poisoning. Chances are you don’t know how to check for lead and you’re not familiar with proper safety precautions. The professionals of Superior Windowland, on the other hand, are trained on how to deal with harmful substances like lead and asbestos.

Your windows might not operate correctly. Even a slight mismeasurement can cause problems with your window’s functionality. Without a perfect fit, your window may not open or close correctly – a potentially unsafe situation. Furthermore, a poorly-fitting window will often result in drafts, which can take a toll on your utility bills.

DIY window installation is more dangerous than one might assume. Superior Windowland is an industry leader, and our skilled technicians will always install your windows the right way. Our goal is not just to help you choose and install your new windows, but also to keep you and your family safe.
