The True Value of Experienced Window Installers April 1, 2016 Shopping around for replacement windows for your Toronto home can be an exciting time. This is especially true when you understand the impact new, quality replacement windows can have on not only the appearance of your home, but also its value. You shop around at a couple of different window and door companies and find one that is attentive to your needs, patient, and willing to go over all of your options and answer all your questions. This is a great company to choose. You begin talking about the cost of each window, including possibly even opening up certain areas of your home for larger windows, and then you see the cost of installation. Maybe the cost of installation is included in the price of the windows, and maybe you’re trying to determine whether you can save money by hiring an independent contractor or even doing them yourself. Before making that kind of decision, here’s something to consider: what’s the true value of experienced window installers? Most quality window manufacturers have specific requirements that must be followed when their windows are installed. If those requirements and instructions are not followed, it can affect the functionality of those windows, including their ability to open as well as draining rainwater away from the windows themselves. Many of the best window manufacturers in the country and around the world may not honor a warranty if the windows are installed by somebody not certified or trained by them. The true value of experienced window installers is in having them installed properly, but also in helping to maintain the credibility of the warranty on that window itself. You may not notice any issues with your windows ever, and that’s the most ideal situation, but in three months if something doesn’t seem to be working properly, you’re covered. You’re about to make a significant investment in your home so make the right decisions and choose an experienced and certified installer, usually one who works for the window and door company.
