If your home windows have never been replaced before, you may not be aware of the technicalities involved in the process. Trying to do it yourself you may stumble upon videos that may not properly explain where you need to measure, what you need to buy, and how to properly and professionally install it. There are several types of setups of window installation. They include the following:
The name "new construction windows" is a bit of a misnomer because it sounds as if you will only need them if you are building a new house or addition to your house. Actually, whether you use new construction windows or not depends on whether or not you need to replace rotten or worn casings. It is important to check the casings and windows before you get your home windows installed for this reason. You can mistakenly get different sizes or shapes that differ from what you previously had if you install new construction windows improperly.
New construction windows include the frame and a nailing fin which sticks it from the outside of the home. If you need this type of window installation, you will have to remove the exterior around the window. This can be used for new houses, but if it is used for replacement it takes considerable skill to install them correctly. Once they are installed, the window edges on the outer side have to be put back in the same initial way, with siding covered, stucco blended in, or bricks replaced. A home window installation company like us will both advise you and install them properly for you to save you a ton of headaches.
Many window installations are actually inserts. They are made to fit into an existing frame. If your window frame is a standard size, you can get a window insert to fit it without having to special-order it. However many windows, especially older ones, do not correspond to the standard measurements available and ready-made in stores.
You will need the help of experts for installing them properly.
If you are going to use inserts for installing home windows, the installation must be done carefully. The opening must be measured precisely and the window must be prepared with attention to detail. The window inserts that are bought must precisely match the ones that are required for the window casing.
For the purposes of energy conservation, putting a new insert in an old casing is considered a repair and not an improvement. This is because the sash and framing of the window must be updated to increase the energy efficiency of a window in most cases. Adding triple panes will increase the energy efficiency even more. Energy efficiency equals money savings for you!
Retrofit windows are designed to fit within the exact space of the previous window and casing. Yet, they are new windows with all the energy-efficient features now available for home window installation. Retrofit windows can be placed very quickly by our experienced window installers. Hiring us will definitely save you time, and keeps you from making costly mistakes.
1. An expert will have the tools required for the job. Some window designs need special tools and buying them may be a bigger investment than hiring a window installer instead.
2. You will need help if you decide to turn this into a do-it-yourself project. Depending on the type and size of the window you are installing, you may need extra hands to help you carry and install them properly.
Think about the extra fees that you may have to pay people to help you. Compare these fees with the fixed price that a window installer may charge you, and you may actually realize some savings if you just hire a company to do the installation for you.
3. A reputable window installation service guarantees their products and services. If you have never installed a window before, you may commit mistakes that can be costly.

5. Hiring a professional window installer saves you time and money. One reason people may choose to install windows themselves is to save money.
However, if you have never done this job before, you may actually spend more time and money trying to get the task done correctly. If you make a mistake, you may end up paying more than your budget.
