Many do-it-yourselfers replace their own windows, however some installations may require skills or time that many people do not have. Here are some resources that can help you determine if you want to do the project yourself, as well as some tools to help get you started.

Installation Skills
Do you have the necessary skills to replace your own windows? The level of skill needed to replace your own windows can vary, depending on the replacement project. A good place to start to determine the scope of a replacement project (and if your skills match the project) is to review the installation instructions.

The Right Tools
Do you have the right tools to do the replacement job yourself? Most installation projects require a few standard tools:
  • Safety glasses
  • Caulk gun
  • Waterproof shims
  • Tape measure
  • Level
  • Hammer
  • Power drill/driver
  • Screwdriver
  • Putty knife
  • Utility knife
  • Small pry bar
Time
Do you have enough time to set aside for your project? A replacement window project requires at least 4 to 6 hours per window on the ground level—and more for windows on upper floors. It’s always best to set aside additional time for reading through the installation instructions thoroughly.
