Are you in need of glass repair for the windows in your home? If so, you may be tempted to save money by replacing or repairing the glass yourself. Before you get started, though, it may surprise you to know that it is actually more expensive to embark on a DIY glass repair project than it is to simply hire a professional home glass repair service to do it for you. Here are some of the things you may want to consider when deciding how to handle your home glass repair.
Total Cost of Home Glass Repair
Sure, on paper it may look like purchasing new windows and installing them yourself is far less expensive than getting the pros to come to your house, but you need to ask yourself what the total cost of the project will be. For instance, will you need to borrow or rent a truck to transport the materials from the store to your house? Do you need to rent any 15-foot ladders or specialty equipment? How will you handle environmentally-responsible disposal of materials and haul-away? These hidden costs may add up to well over the amount that professional glass repair would have cost. Then, of course, there is the question of how much value is placed on your time. A glass repair job that would take professional technicians a fraction of the time, thanks to their expertise and considerable experience, might end up taking you all weekend long. Not only that, but the intensity of the labor may be a lot more than you bargained for at the outset of your project. It may be wise to take things like time and supplies into consideration prior to choosing a DIY glass repair.
Risks of DIY Glass Repair
The skilled glass repair technicians at Northwest Glass Co. have dedicated their careers to making home glass repair look easy…but that doesn’t mean it IS easy! Before starting a do-it-yourself glass repair project to save money, you may want to think about the considerable risk that may be involved for someone with little to no experience. For instance, certain aspects of glass repair, such as climbing tall ladders, may result in serious injury if performed by someone who is relatively inexperienced. It’s a good idea to think twice about all of the physical labor that goes into home glass repair and see if perhaps it is a better idea to leave it to the experts.
