Whatever problem your window may have, it’s always best to have a professional handle it. But when is it alright to hire a handyman, and when is the expertise of a window company required?
Handyman vs. Window Contractor
A handyman is generally capable of doing minor repairs on windows. However, if you’re looking at more serious damage or a recurring issue where replacement is potentially the best solution, you should definitely look for a window company.
Windows are a significant investment, and its performance depends on the quality of its installation. Window replacement companies are naturally more equipped and knowledgeable than a regular handyman when it comes to matters like this. So, for your peace of mind, you should go with a professional who can provide the expertise and specialization you need.
Repair or Replace
As a general rule of thumb, recurring issues should be addressed with long-term solutions. Repetitive repairs will only cost you more money in the long run, and always treating a problem as an isolated case doesn’t really fix the underlying issue.
You can replace the glass or parts of the frame, but repairs like that may not last longer than five years. In some cases, fixes aren’t even able to last for more than a year. However, by replacing your entire window, you can rest assured that you won’t be dealing with any window problems for the next 10 years or more.
