The Process of Installing Replacement Windows

Since installation of replacement windows is an infrequent event and can only take place if the homeowner is planning to get rid of all the old windows and replace them with new ones, the installation process is something to be learned on, especially since it’s dealing with a fragile material. Replacement windows are relatively cheaper because they have been considered as low cost commodity windows by builders.

 

You have to consider that replacing all your windows in the house will mean allowing the window installers to enter each room just so they can install the new windows; therefore, it is recommended that you stay at home, take off from work or bring your work at home, so you can monitor the installation process, as well as keep watch over your valuables.  See to it that you have locked away all your valuables in your safe or in a locked cabinet, before the installers arrive, to avoid the possibility of theft coming from any of the installers.  When installation is at work, it is necessary that you are at home and managing the whole crew, giving them space to work but at a calling distance when they need to inquire about something.

 

During day 1 of the installation, meet first with the foreman and discuss certain conditions in their process of installing the windows, such as drop cloths inside the room must be properly placed and drop cloths outside must also be installed for protecting your flowerbeds, no tools should be left in the house, rooms are broom-clean, the removal of old windows left outside the house, and no windows left open for installation the next day.   Usually, the Roofing Contractor in Charlotte service company will send a multi-crew to remove and install the new windows, so it can meet the contract period of work, therefore, expect then that about 10 old windows will be removed and replacement with new ones for day 1.

 

In Day 2 the task of removing the old windows and replacing with the new ones will continue, but it is expected that the installation job will normally conclude in Day 2.  After the installation of the new, replacement windows all over the house, the next task of the installers is to install extended trims or claddings inside each window, so the window is tightly sealed from the inclement weather.  When they have completed the installation of the extended trim, they will also install a similar one outside the window and, at this time, each window is tested, and with that, sometimes, this may take one more day for the entire installation job to conclude.
