Have you been thinking about ordering replacement windows for your Long Island home? Maybe you’ve been comparing prices and think you’d come out better financially if you put on your D-I-Y apron and safety goggles and installed your own windows. Some off-the-shelf windows may seem initially less expensive than custom-built Renewal by Andersen replacement windows. But, there is more to value than just the price.
Unless you have exceptional construction skills, you may find that reconstructing your window opening to fit your new windows isn’t all that easy. And, without a perfect fit, the energy efficiency features of your new window might go right out the … well, window. Also, if you measure wrong, like accidentally transposing the width with the height, your window supplier probably won’t take back your window and if they do, you’ll likely have to pay return shipping fees and restocking fees.
Hiring a local contractor to install your windows presents another set of challenges. While they’ll likely be responsible if something goes wrong during the installation (if you can get them to come back), you’ll have to prove the contractor was at fault and not the manufacturer. That can get into a frustrating game of finger-pointing. Filing an insurance claim is a hassle and some companies only offer short-term coverage.
Benefits of Installing Renewal by Andersen Replacement Windows as Compared to Self-Installation
Custom-Built for You and Your Home
