Window screens are some of the most important components of a property. Like most things involving DIY, there’s a lot to know about window screen installation. From building your custom screens to determining the screen parts to buy, there are various things to weigh before choosing the DIY path or hiring a professional.
Most homeowners choose the DIY path wherever they can. After all, DIYs are a great way to save money. Besides, you can take pride in improving your home by yourself. However, window screen installation is best left in professional hands. Here’s why:
To Get the Right Fit
Many homeowners are shocked when they get to the home improvement store and discover there are no screens to fit their windows. It is essential to know that there is no one-size-fits-all for window screens. This is because they come in a wide range of dimensions. Consequently, it might be impossible to find one that fits your window frame without the required skills and knowledge.
Fortunately, with a professional, you can have window screens custom-made to fit your window frames. This way, you know that you are getting good quality screens that fit your home perfectly.
To Maintain Frame Integrity
Some homeowners get around not finding the correct screen size by replacing the mesh on their existing window screens. In theory, this is a good DIY path to save money. However, putting a new mesh might distort the window’s frame so that it longer sits flat and cannot fit back into the window frame. AA good window screen professional never reuses old frames. They ensure quality installation by using sturdy new frames.
To Get the Right Look
Besides the difficulty in finding screens that fit your windows, it’s also challenging to find window screens that fit your window frames and the overall look of your home. In such cases, unsightly window screens destroy your property’s curb appeal. However, having the window screens professionally installed will upgrade the look of your home.
To Get Better Features
With DIY installation, you might miss out on the multiple benefits window screens have to offer. However, a professional will take a comprehensive approach and use their expertise to ensure that your window screens serve the purpose they were designed for. They ensure that the screens are installed to maximize your home’s efficiency and lower utility bills.
It is Cheaper
There are a lot of tools you’ll need to handle the installation. You will have to spend time buying these things from home improvement stores and doing the job. This means spending time and money that you could have channeled elsewhere. A professional window screen installation contractor is equipped with the skills, tools, and equipment required to handle the project. This saves you time and money for other essential things.
