Benefits of Hiring a Window and Door Service vs DIY
1. Reliable Expertise
If it's time to replace your windows and doors, you want to make sure the job is done right to ensure maximum efficiency and security.
You can expect to devote a considerable amount of time, money, and resources (more on that later). Not getting it right the first time will be even more costly down the line, as you may have to pay for expensive repairs and fixes.
By taking the DYI route over a professional window and door service, you will also miss out on workmanship guarantees and a warranty, both of which bring a healthy measure of peace of mind along with them.
Unless you've done it before, a DIY project of this magnitude is likely to be a bigger project than you think. It may seem like a good idea at the start, but in reality, a job like this is much more difficult than it seems.
Take advantage of the peace of mind that comes with hiring a pro window and door service.
2. Proper Tools / Accident Coverage
You need craftsmen that are factory trained professionals, who take great pride in their work, and who use great care when working on your home.
Due to the risk that comes with this kind of job - climbing ladders, for example - it's also important to rely on people who have Workplace Safety Insurance Board coverage and working at heights training in case of accident.
Also, don't underestimate the necessity of being equipped with all necessary and specialized tools needed to complete the job with greatest efficiency.
There's a considerable amount of risk that comes with working at heights. Trust a trained pro and stay safe.
3. Saves You Money
While window and door repair or replacement does represent an additional expense, relying on a professional service is is the best way to protect your home’s value. If the job isn't done properly, not only will you have to fork over additional time, money, and resources towards additional reparations, but you risk diminishing the value of your home and affecting its resale value.
"If you DIY this task and don’t do everything the right way, then your home’s value could decline," writes Window Nation. "Homebuyers are turned off by poor quality repair work. If your windows don’t come out exactly right, you risk making a poor impression on potential buyers when you go to sell your home."
Additionally, in a worst-case scenario, you might need to spend money down the road to repair problems caused by poorly installed windows, such as water damage.
Maintain your home's value by getting the job done right.

"Budget's team installed a new bay window for us last winter and updated the insulation around the window. The windows are high quality and made locally in Ontario. We have noticed a significant difference in the temperature control in our room and we love our new window! The owner took the time to review our options and provided us a great price (he was the best of the 3 quotes we received). His installer was very professional and we couldn't be happier!" - Aaron Bruce
