Door, Window and Screen Installation and Repair – Do it Yourself, Hire a Handyman or Hire a Pro?

In most cases installing exterior doors, windows and screen enclosures is best left to the professionals.   And the answer is…Yes, to the question, “Do I need a permit?” 

For repairs the biggest challenge is finding the right part.

New windows can greatly enhance the look of your home.

However, if you do have the skill and experience these are jobs that can be tackled by a highly skilled do it yourselfer, who possesses advanced carpentry skills and possesses the proper tools.  Before taking on such jobs yourself, another factor to keep in mind is the time it will take to complete the job and is it worth it. 

In regards to hiring a handyman or independent contractor for such jobs, you should check how long they have been in business, check references and see if they have the necessary experience and  certifications.  Improper installation will cause you to not pass inspection or void the product warranty.   Be sure to research the product warranty requirements.
