If your windows are letting in too much noise, or drafts, or light, you need an upgrade. Living with unwanted light and sound, especially when you’re stuck inside, can make you feel out of control and not at home in your house.
The most common window treatments are:
- Adding curtains or blinds, which either block some light, or all light and some sound
- Getting replacement windows
- Replacing the windows yourself, if you are a skilled DIYer
Curtains, blinds, and window replacement can all require contractors or professional installers coming into your home. They would need access to any windows you want to upgrade, and in the case of replacement windows, they would need to access your wall, opening it up before doing any repairs or updates.
Watch How Long It Takes to Install Inserts vs Blinds
A better option is diy window inserts which can be installed from the comfort of your house to add privacy and energy savings without blocking your windows. If you want more control over the light and noise coming through your windows, but still like the way they look, think about adding window inserts.
DIY Window Inserts
Our window inserts can all be self installed. They just push into the interior of your window frame without mounting hardware or altering your original window. The window insert is custom made to fit your window precisely and mailed to your home or business so the whole interaction is contactless. We even have a contactless measurement process.
All of our diy window treatments block noise and drafts, but some grade types have extra benefits, like translucent panel for added privacy or UV protection to stop wood floors and furniture from fading.
Once the window inserts are installed, you can still add blind or curtains—they’re a great way to dress up any room. With diy window inserts, you won’t need to rely on curtains for privacy or noise control, so you can add whatever style you like.
How to Measure & Install DIY Window Inserts
- We ship you a laser measurement kit (thoroughly cleaned between each use)
- You measure your windows at home
- Enter window dimensions into our online portal (our proprietary software and in-house window experts check the dimensions to ensure a perfect fit)
- We create your custom window insert & ship it to you
- You install it at home by pressing it into your window
Your window measurements work for each of these grade types: standard, noise-blocking, UV-blocking, privacy-grade. You can decide which grade of custom window insert you want at any point.
Window Insert Cost
The cost of our self-install window inserts depends on the size of your window and the grade type you choose. A standard-sized window averages $360 or $30/sf. When you choose to install yourself, you are skipping installation fees and the trouble of construction, and you’re also making the entire process contactless.
If you’d like to start with an estimate of your diy window treatment cost, head to our window insert cost calculator. Enter your approximate window dimensions and whether you want our standard insert or our window insert with added noise blocking into the calculator (remember you can change it later). This will give you an idea of how much your insert or window project will cost.
