A Basic Guide to the Window Installation Process

Last updated 5 years ago

Replacement windows can help you reduce your home energy use and improve the comfort levels of your interior. However, windows can only improve your home’s efficiency if they are installed properly. Here is what you can expect from the professional replacement window installation process:

Contact a Reputable Contractor

The window installation process starts with a conversation between the contractor and the homeowner. The two parties discuss the cost of the replacement and the type of replacement windows being installed. Finally, you come to an agreement on an estimate and schedule an installation date. A company representative will also contact and remind the homeowner about the installation prior to the work.

Strip the Windows

Much of the first installation day is spent removing old windows. Contractors carefully detach windows without causing structural damage to the home. As the windows are replaced, old windows are stacked on the side of the house. If the job cannot be completed in a single day, workers will remove the old windows from your yard at the end of each day.

Complete the Installation

Replacement windows are set into a window frame shortly after the aging window is removed. Professionals secure the fit against the window frame. Afterwards, the window is nailed securely into place.

Clean the Worksite

The contractor’s final task is to breakdown the worksite. All tools and machinery brought by the contractor are completely removed. All trash and leftover materials are taken away as well. Even your floors are swept and dusted. The end result is a beautiful set of perfectly installed replacement windows.
