What Can Go Wrong With DIY Replacement Windows?

replacement windows in Ontario, CA

You might be pretty handy around the house, but there are some projects even you should stay away from. Like replacement windows in Ontario, CA. When you need new windows, you spend time looking at options and choosing just the right fit for your home. You want those windows to perform as promised and the only way you can guarantee that is by having professional installation done. Sure, it’s tempting to save the installation money by doing it yourself. Especially if you understand how it’s done, in theory. But there are so many things that can go wrong, you’re always better off letting the pros do their job. Here are a few things that could happen with DIY replacement window projects.


You certainly don’t want to take yourself out of commission due to an injury you can avoid. And there are countless things that can happen when you are installing windows. Instead of risking it, let the professionals do their job. Professionals are less likely to sustain injuries because they know what they are doing. Plus, if an injury does occur, they have the insurance to cover it and you don’t have to worry about a thing.


It might sound strange that installing the windows yourself can actually end up costing you more, but it’s true. You may, in the end, spend more money this way than just paying an installer upfront. First, you might have to buy tools for the job that you didn’t need otherwise. Second, you might buy materials and possibly more materials if you make a mistake. Third, if something goes wrong, you have to pay for someone to fix it and that costs more as well. It can all add up very quickly and that’s never a good thing for your initial plans.

Voided Warranties

Windows generally come with manufacturer warranties, but there are certain things you can do to make those warranties null and void—like install the windows yourself. If you don’t care about the warranties, whatever. But you should care because if something breaks down before it’s time, the manufacturer will fix it at no charge…if the warranty is valid. All you have to do is install the windows yourself and you won’t have that validity at all.

When you are looking into replacement windows in Ontario, CA, it can be tempting to get the installation job and put it on your shoulders if you’re a handy person and think you know what to do. But it’s always better to remove that burden from yourself and place it on someone else—professional installers. Contact the experts at J.R.
