Our homes are our sanctuary, and we only want the very best for our house, for safety, as well as design and comfort. If you’re considering replacing your old windows, our recommendation is that you should leave this to a professional. Many homeowners believe that it will save them money if they do their own home improvement projects. While there are many house projects homeowners can do themselves, there are some remodeling projects that are best left to the professionals.
Professional installers have the right skills, tools, and knowledge to handle window installation projects, as well as the latest industry knowledge. Consulting with a window expert like New Windows for America is important when considering whether you need new windows, what type of windows is best for the home, and having a professional, and reputable company to do the job.
Read on for five reasons why replacing windows should be done by a professional.
Windows are some of the most important and significant components of your home, influencing your energy efficiency, curb appeal and comfort. Installing windows takes experience and knowledge which is why window replacement installation should not be done by a novice, but rather by hiring the skills of a window expert. Starting from selecting the right windows, to pre-installation custom measurements, protecting the home and work area, removing old windows, working on frame repair, if necessary, to installing the replacement window, sealing and insulation, applying trim, etc., there are many steps that a window installation expert will ensure when hired to do a professional window replacement.
If windows are not installed properly you may end up losing a lot of energy from the home, which could be quite costly for your energy costs. If installed properly, the return on your investment will be paid back in no time!
Window manufacturing companies typically only warranty their products when installed by certified contractors. Professional window replacement comes with a manufacturer’s warranty as well as a workmanship warranty from New Windows for America that guarantees the quality of the service. Should you decide to install the windows yourself, there are no guarantees, and could also count towards a voided manufacturer’s warranty.
There’s no sense in putting in extra time for your DIY project to only encounter issues later on. Spending extra time to learn how to do the project, using the right techniques, and having to purchase the necessary tools to do the job are timely and costly. At New Windows for America, we have been installing new windows in the Denver area for over 25 years. We have the knowledge, tools, and experience to do the job in a timely manner.
It’s no secret that working with windows can be dangerous. You’re dealing with sharp edges, slanted or awkward angles, and heavy pieces of glass. That doesn’t even include the stress that can come with DIY projects that involve heights. Your best bet is to leave the job to the pros. We have the right protective gear to ensure the work area is safe for you and our team.

Worrying about whether your home renovation project is done correctly is not worth it. Hiring a professional means, you will be assured that your project is completed properly.
