Modern windows have come a long way from their humble beginnings. Today, energy efficiency is the name of the game and almost all manufacturers, whether they’re windows, doors or siding companies, have made innovations to improve the performance of their products. Unfortunately, this also means that a simple fix from your local handyman might not do your triple-pane, gas-filled, low-E-coated, double-hung windows any justice.
Eventually, almost all parts of your home will require repairs and windows are not an exception. The question is who do you call to handle all your window problems? Let our window specialists at Silver Lead Contracting give you a quick overview of how to find help for failing windows.
Repairs Vs. Replacement
Choosing whether you need to call your local window companies for a full replacement or a simple repair can be difficult. If it’s the first time your window needs service and it’s nowhere near the end of its life span, by all means, call for a repair. This is dependent as well on the nature of your window’s problem. For older windows, a full replacement may be more practical.
Handymen provide reliable and convenient all-around service for almost all parts of your home. Unfortunately, they might not be trained enough to handle the ins and outs of certain window brands, at least not as well as factory-certified contractors. It’s always best to have someone specifically trained to deal with a particular brand of windows.
Depending on the company that manufactured your window, you’ll be able to find window contractors that will have all the necessary skills, experience, and tools to earn a certification from the manufacturer itself. This is also important as having someone else do your repairs might void your window warranty if you have one.
All things considered, getting a factory-certified contractor is always a good idea. At Silver Leaf Contracting, we are your leading provider of home repairs, renovation, and remodeling services. Give us a call at (330) 313-0620 or fill out our contact form and request a free estimate today.
