4 Helpful Tips to Get You through a Window Replacement

March 14, 2016

Replacing your windows is a smart investment that offers long-term returns. Nevertheless, the thought of opening your home and leaving it at the mercy of the elements can make you a bit edgy. For the most part, the key to staying calm and handling window replacements with relative ease is adequate preparation.

Let Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee help you enjoy a smooth experience when replacing your windows in Milwaukee, WI with these four tips:

1. Remember That Window Replacement is a Gradual Process

The contractors will not take out all the windows at once. At most, they will take out two adjoining windows and replace them before moving to another section of the house. As such, you don’t have to worry about gaping exposures on your walls.

2. Clear the Way

Take down all decorations, ornaments, and window treatments before the contractors arrive. You should also find out how much space the installers will need in and out of your home so you can move the furniture and fittings accordingly. This will help speed up the process and allow for a neater work place in your home. At Renewal by Andersen, we go the extra mile by cleaning up the area after installing your new windows.

3. Keep Kids and Pets Out of the Way

Kids and pets really have no place in a window replacement site. This is mostly for safety concerns and to ensure that the contractors finish the job with little or no interruptions.

4. Communicate Frequently with Your Contractors

Be sure to ask about important details like their weather policy and how they plan to handle instances of unexpected weather changes. After all, you don’t want the interior of your home to get wet or muddy. You should also make sure you’re getting the windows you asked for, and that they come with warranties.

With us, you don’t have to worry about this ever becoming an issue. As the top windows contractor in Milwaukee, we custom craft your windows according to the specifications of your home. You can be sure you’ll get exactly what you ordered. We also offer one of the strongest warranties on your new windows.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
