If you’re a Springfield homeowner and you are considering having your windows replaced, you’ve probably thought about doing the job yourself. Whether you’re an experienced handyman or you’re just getting started, installing multiple windows on multiple floors yourself can be a challenging, lengthy project. Additionally, when done incorrectly, your windows are prone to drafts and leaks.

Due to these risks and challenges, the Springfield Glass Company explains why it’s best to let the pros handle your window replacement and installation. Read today’s blog to find out more.

Window Glass Replacement Is Time Consuming

A single window could take four to six hours to replace, but first, you need the tools and hardware to do the job. Replacement windows are often difficult to find online or in home improvement stores. If you have a multi-story home and want to replace the upper floor windows, you’ll need a sturdy ladder and a helping hand. There’s also a learning curve that comes with installing exterior cladding.

Our trained experts know how to stay safe and maintain professionalism while on the job. When you let Springfield Glass handle your window replacement, you can free up time for other household chores and prioritize important family matters.  

Window Glass Replacement Is Risky

It can be risky to install windows yourself. Not only is it dangerous to work on a ladder, but many problems can occur if the windows are not installed properly. First, moisture is a big threat to both your indoor air quality and the longevity of the window itself. When the window opening isn’t fully sealed, water can leak inside and cause undetected damage to your walls. Next, mildew and mold may develop around your window over time. These growths can discolor interior surfaces and they can be harmful to you and your family’s health. Additionally, improper window installation allows heat to escape your home, reducing energy efficiency and increasing utility costs.   

By choosing window glass replacement with the Springfield Glass Company, you get high-quality glass that will better seal in your home, reducing energy costs in every season.
