Can I Install Windows Myself?

Windows are with you from the beginning of your homeownership adventure. Whether you get the default windows model or opt for an additional upgrade, you’ll have windows when you first enter your home, but they won’t last forever. Just like house paint, chills, squeaky door hinges, creaky boards and other parts of the house, they will eventually need to be replaced . So what do you do when the time comes?

Well, first of all, you need to know whether or not they need to be replaced. Windows can be a little strange sometimes and that doesn’t always mean you need a new one. But if you have a window that makes a lot of noise, lets in drafts, has visibly damaged frames, is difficult to open or close and/or has condensation cracks, then you probably need to replace them. And once you know that, you can move on to the next phase.

Where to go for an installation?

It can be tempting to try to do it yourself, but your windows are incredibly complicated and a lot can go wrong if you try to change them yourself. An installation professional not only does the hard work for you, but can also help you decide what you need from the start. Is it a window that needs changing or is it just slightly damaged and easy to fix? What kind of Windows can you actually install and what is considered an upgrade? A professional can help you answer all these questions and JDI Windows wants to be that professional.

When is the best time to book a facility?

Winter is not the time to install windows in Denver, but sometimes it can’t be avoided and winter installation is not impossible. There are some parts of winter that can help the process, including keeping pests and insects out of the process and the usual level of debris. While not ideal, it can be done and can help with your winter energy bills when it comes to keeping your home warm.

Fall is a good time to finish and remove window installation as a way to prepare your home for winter and make general home repairs before the snow and cold arrive. You’ll get more bugs and debris as debris from the job, but you’ll feel the process much less with slightly better temperatures and it’s more preferable than a winter installation.

Spring and summer are ideal. Many people make this part of their spring cleaning when they notice that worn windows can last through the winter months. Summer is one of the busiest times of the year for window installation, but there is no shortage of hands to help get the installation done.
