The Dangers of DIY- Why Professionals are Worth the Extra Cost

The Dangers of DIY- Why Professionals are Worth the Extra Cost

Here at Facelift Window & Door Replacements we’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to DIY Disasters. DIY dangers are real people!

Probably the most common problem to rear its ugly head is someone trying to install their windows and doors and it just all goes horribly wrong. It may look simple but hanging a door correctly is actually quite complex, that’s if you want it to lock, open or close…  Windows improperly installed have poor weather-seal properties, rattle and whistle in a storm, leak in the rain and occasionally dislodge themselves from the frame completely. Apart from being annoying, they can be downright dangerous!  That’s when we’re called in to “Save the Day” which works out to be a far more expensive exercise than if we’d just been engaged to do the job in the first place.
