Window repair is generally a do-it-yourself job with a good chance for success. When it comes to window replacement, however, we advise most of our audience to go pro. The law of gravity, combined with a stiff wind, can create an undesirable outcome when you’re trying to wrestle a new window into place.
Besides the drama of smashed glass, an important part of a new window project involves making sure the replacement windows fit properly. Since almost all replacement windows are made to fit the old window openings, getting this wrong can put a real crimp on your project.
Bottom line, this is one area where do-it-yourselfers can easily become do-it-TO-yourselfers, so approach these projects with a dose of caution.
