If you have decided to get replacement windows, you might have a few questions about the installation process. While the steps may seem simple, it is important to hire a professional for the job. Only trained professionals can meet the highest standards and guarantee complete satisfaction. Here is a generalized list of what you can expect during the installation process:
1. Appointment Confirmation
A few days before the installation, the office will contact you to confirm the installation date and nail down the details. You may receive some instructions on how you can prepare your home for installation. For example, you will want to remove any blinds and drapes and move furniture out of the way. You also should disable your alarm system so the crew can get to work as soon as they arrive. If you have any other questions about how to prepare your home, ask!
2. Meet the Foreman
On the day of installation, the head of the crew will walk through your home with you and go over each replacement window. This is an opportunity to make sure products are accounted for. While mistakes are uncommon, they can happen. This preliminary walkthrough gives installers the chance to catch any errors before removing windows. After the walkthrough, the foreman will give you an estimated time of completion based on the number of replacement windows and other conditions.
3. Site Prep
At Home Supply Window and Door, we pay attention to detail and treat your home with the utmost care. Before beginning window removal, we will place covers over your floors and furniture in proximity to the work site. There is some demolition involved complete with dust. But we will do what we can to mitigate debris and keep all construction mess to a minimum.
4. Old Window Removal
Next, the crew will use a series of tools to take each window out. The process may involve saws, pry bars, and muscle. Again, we will protect your walls, trim, and paint as best we can and ensure your home is not damaged.
5. Immediate Replacement
Our team typically works from window to window. As soon as the old one is out, the new window goes in. This minimizes heat loss and ensures there is never an opening left in the exterior of your house for too long. Once the window is in, our team will seal and cap the exterior. In a typical day, the installation team can complete approximately insert 10 window replacements, slightly fewer for full frame replacement.
6. Job Completion and Clean Up
Once all the windows are in and the cladding is installed, the team will clear away any mess and clean up their tools leaving no trace. After that, the foreman will do a final walk-through to show you how each window operates and give you instructions on proper maintenance. Again, if you have any questions about the warranty or the products, feel free to ask.
