Would you feel comfortable installing your own replacement windows?
No - this is a trade skill that if not done properly can do damage to the property.
As a contractor myself, I ask the question rhetorically. I believe that nearly anyone with some basic common sense can install a replacement window....especially a vinyl replacement window. There is a TON of free information available on the subject.
After 35 years in the industry I would not have any problem replacing windows and have done it several times in my life. I don't care how much free information exists on the subject, no one should try it without having someone to guide them the first time. Good measurements for the manufacture of the vinyl windows is one issue. Removing windows where the brick butts the window is another issue (saws all time). Squaring windows 'cause no one installs them with the sash closed as the instructions direct, etc., etc., etc.
If you are not feel comfort about the installing your own replacement windows, please the Online Window Shop is an internet based business providing the builder with fully finished, high performance, modular sized windows at a competitive price.

What does it mean when a bird keeps tapping on the window trying to get in?This is a wild bird, not a pet. It is brown with a thin beak and the size of a blackbird.
