If your windows are fogging up and leaking cold air into your home, it’s time to take swift, decisive action. What kind of company do you hire to perform window repairs? When is it better to opt for window replacement? Home Pro Exteriors, Inc., the area’s premier window & roof repair company, helps you decide.
Hiring a Handyman for a Short-Term Fix
Band-Aid solutions for window problems usually lead to recurring issues, repetitive repairs and more expenses down the line. Replacing the glass or parts of the frame doesn’t always fix the underlying problem. Still, you can hire a handyman to perform a short-term fix while you save money for a window replacement. There are some projects that a handyman may not have the license to do so check with your local licensing agency to see if your handyman has the license for window repairs.
Replacement Lasts Longer
When you’re able to, replace windows at first sight of disrepair, malfunction, or recurring issues. A window or roof replacement by a factory-certified contractor will cost a lot more than a repair. Nonetheless, you’re guaranteed to not spend any more money on the window for 10 years or more. Repairs aren’t usually guaranteed for more than five years, and often don’t last more than one year. A remodeling contractor and a handyman are actually the same when it comes to ability. Where they usually differ is the size and the scope of the work that they perform.
Hiring a Handyman or Contractor
Before hiring a handyman or contractor, interview several candidates for the job. Check for references to determine their reputability. Be wary of handymen that try to ask for full payment before doing any work. Ask for a written agreement that details the job, the cost, and the payment schedule.
