For many homeowners, DIY is best when it comes to home improvements. Certain projects, however, such as window replacement and roofing, simply need to be left to experts if you wish to achieve the best results. All American Roofing, one of the leading roofing companies in Oklahoma, shares some of the benefits below.
One of the main advantages of leaving window replacement to professionals is you get professional-looking results. Off-the-rack window replacements offer a limited selection of colors and styles, often with no customization options. With professionals, not only do you get custom replacement windows, you also get factory-installed finishes that will match your color palette. You also get the opportunity to change window styles if you wish.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Proper installation is one of the most overlooked parts of replacement windows. Prior to installation, the window opening has to be cleaned and inspected for issues that might compromise the new windows. During installation, the window frame has to be precisely leveled, shimmed and adjusted before the screws are put into place. Once the windows are anchored onto the exterior wall, the gaps are filled with insulation before the trim is installed.
This level of precision, combined with the quality of custom replacement windows, contributes to minimal heat transfer, which helps reduce heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. This, in turn, can lessen your indoor heating and cooling requirements, which leads to lower energy consumption, and therefore, lower energy bills.
Assuming that you have the means to install your own windows, there’s the matter of addressing issues that arise from installation errors, which you will likely pay out of your own pocket to fix. With professional window replacement, you have the peace of mind knowing if your windows develop problems from improper installation, they will be corrected at no extra cost.
