4 Reasons to Hire a Professional Window Replacement Contractor

4 reasons to hire a professional window replacement contractor

It’s common for homeowners to believe that completing DIY projects around their homes is the best way to save money. While this may be more economical at times, larger projects, like replacing old basement windows, are better left in the hands of professionals.

Unlike other areas of the home, basement window installation is very complex. Without proper installation, you leave yourself and your home at risk. If you plan to replace your basement windows, here are some reasons why you should hire professional window installers:

  1. Efficiency and Affordability

If you have never installed basement windows before, it will take you much longer than a seasoned professional. You shouldn’t have to take days off work to finish a basement window replacement you started over the weekend! Plus, not finishing on time leaves your basement open to creatures and insects that like to hide in darker spaces.

When you rely on reputable window replacement  contractors to install your windows, they will provide you with an accurate estimate beforehand so you can properly plan for your project and stay within your available budget. They rely on your satisfaction, so they will get your project done as quickly as possible and to the highest standard.

  1. Better Results

Installing basement windows requires an extensive amount of knowledge and experience. You need to understand which windows work best in specific situations and you should know how much force different window options can withstand so you have the proper information to make the best possible choice.

Basement window replacement contractors are experienced and knowledgeable, so they will know which products and systems will work best for your home. Instead of taking extra time to research your own solutions, they can help you identify the best options.

  1. Safety

Did you know that most basement windows come with warranties that are only valid with proper installation? Installing windows on your own risks voiding your warranty, which is why you should always leave the work to certified, professional contractors. Additionally, the basement window installation process can be dangerous. Hiring a professional ensures all safety standards are upheld and keeps you from injuring yourself.

  1. Easy Cleanup

Like any other construction project, window replacement comes with a lot of dust, dirt and debris. Cleaning up after an installation can be a big task, but when you work with a professional contractor, they handle all the dirty work for you.

Once your basement window installation is complete, your contractor will clean up and haul away the mess, ensuring your space looks just like it did before they arrived. Plus, they will know how to keep debris under control during installation so there’s less mess later.

Seven years ago we had you install 14 windows ni our home and we loved them. We had 4 newer windows at the time and decided that we would not replace them. Over time those inferior windows that were bought at a local store began to fail and the room became drafty and cold. So we called you again and had you replace those 4 windows along with 2 windows ni the garage. We are so happy with the new windows. They look so great and are so easy to clean. We were so happy with al of the people that help to get our windows. They were al very friendly and helpful. They are excellent windows and worth every penny that we spent. The installation was great! Thanks again for doing another great job on our windows. Sincerely, John and Marian Dykes

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to every single employee at White Oak Construction. Without exaggeration, every single person I dealt with from your company took the time to get to know me as a person and allow me to get to know them, and their families/lives - who they are. I’ve seen a lot in my 64 years on this earth, but I’ve never seen the likes of the quality of your people and workmanship.

White Oak Construction contacted us at exactly the time we were looking for a contractor to replace our rotted cedar siding. Rather than replace our cedar siding, the White Oak team suggested we use vinyl instead to save money on future cedar replacements and upkeep. We loved that suggestion but had one requirement: that they maintain our home’s unique siding design and placement. White Oak finished our project in just 6 weeks and did a beautiful job duplicating the siding design. We appreciated their attention to detail and commitment to keeping us in the loop every step of the way. Even our neighbors have noticed and complimented their work!

I would like to thank all of the people involved in this. I had my roof replaced and the entire process was smooth and well done. The job was done to my satisfaction and very high quality. The entire job took less than half of the time I expected and the quality of the work is outstanding. I would recommend calling this company for roof repair or replacement to anyone that needs the work done.

Would like to say thank you for putting my front window in my house. I have had several compliments on how good it looks! They were quick and thorough. Went right to work and didn’t stop until they were done. Cleaned up so well it did not look like they had even been here.

On August 18th our new door was delivered and installed. It is so beautiful! I could not have imagined how great it was going to look. It changes the look of the entire house and has such a nice tight seal. Scott, the young man who installed it, is beyond words. What great work. Installed and cleaned up in a couple hours. Our salesman Rob was top notch also. He helped me pick the color for the door and I want him to know how perfect it was. I feel that I have the most beautiful front door in town. This is the second time we have used White Oak Construction and I promise you if you need work done they do quality work and use quality products. They are better than all the rest.

We are so happy with our new windows from White Oak Construction! From the sales team to the installation technician, everyone was so quick to help us in this process. Not only are the windows of excellent quality, the installation was very fast. We are so happy with our windows and we look forward to working with White Oak again in the future! Thank you everyone!

On October 6, 2020, I had three of the six windows in my house replaced by White Oak Construction. The windows I had replaced are in the front room of my house. Two of the windows face the east and one faces the north. The two that face the east were originally double hung windows and were replaced with an encasement window with a tint to it. The tint reflects the sunlight which has helped to keep the front room from getting too warm. The other window was a double hung window replaced with another double hung window. This window has a half screen which allows me to open it from the top or bottom. This feature is very beneficial to me as I have a large dog. The old windows were twenty years old and leaking a lot of air. The front window was about to fall out because they had come loose from the frame of the house.

White Oak Construction gave me a free estimate of my roof and siding and found that I needed drip edge installed on my roof. The two gentlemen showed me what my roof looked like, what it should look like, and why it was needed. The installers who did the work did an excellent job, they were able to complete it in one day and showed me the work. Very well done! I would definitely do work with them in the future if I have other needs.

Thank you for working with us to install 6 new replacement windows. The people that we interacted with from the sales team through installation were great, both helpful and friendly. We had 8 windows replaced by White Oak Construction a couple of years ago and when we needed these windows replaced, we knew that they would do a good job and give us the kind of quality windows we wanted at a reasonable price.
