STEPS TO PROPER WINDOW REPLACEMENT – PART II: THE ACTUAL INSTALLATION

STEPS TO PROPER WINDOW REPLACEMENT – PART II: THE ACTUAL INSTALLATION

November 08, 2022

Home improvement projects have to be carried out right to achieve best results and the same is true with replacing windows. Getting new windows is nothing to scoff at, after all, so you’re going to want to make sure that you make the most out of your investment. Fortunately, it’s not difficult to achieve that. All you have to do is to make sure that you’re working with the right window contractor. In the last post, we discussed the pre-installation and preparation steps that manufacturer-certified contractors generally follow. Today, we will continue the discussion and take a look at the crucial steps to be taken during the actual installation of replacement windows.

Step Three: Removal of Old Windows

After securing your belongings and valuables and setting up in your home, your contractor will now proceed to carefully remove your old windows. This is a step that must not be done with haste, as mishandling old windows can cause damage to the window opening as well as objects in your home, which can delay the installation project.

Step Four: Installation of New Windows

Your replacement windows will arrive in one piece, helping simplify installation so the job can get done faster. After your old windows have been removed, your contractor will install your new windows, making the necessary adjustments to ensure they fit properly. Say, the opening is unlevel, your contractor will now get to work leveling the surface. After it is in place, a replacement window will then be tested to ensure it operates right.

Step Five: Sealing Your New Windows

Despite snugly fitting an opening, a replacement window will have gaps around it. The last step in the installation phase involves sealing these gaps with products like caulk or insulating foam. After the step is completed, it will ensure that your replacement windows are waterproof and airtight, performing as they should for your home.

Now that window installation is complete, let’s head on over to Part 3 to discuss the finishing steps in a replacement project.

Hear From Our Customers

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!!!

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.
