STEPS TO PROPER WINDOW REPLACEMENT – PART III: THE FINISHING TOUCHES

STEPS TO PROPER WINDOW REPLACEMENT – PART III: THE FINISHING TOUCHES

November 08, 2022

Previously, we’ve discussed the series of steps that contractors typically follow when installing replacement windows. Here, we will be taking the opportunity to have a closer look at the last important steps of the process, which will help guarantee the success of a replacement project.

Step Six: Finishing Touches

The last step involved sealing gaps to keep windows waterproof and airtight. But though important to the process, sealing products are unfortunately not visually appealing. There’s no need to worry, however, because trims can be used to cover seals. Window trims come in a range of color and style options so there’s sure to be one that will match your windows perfectly.

Step Seven: Clean Up and Project Wrap-Up

Once everything is in order, your contractor will wrap up your replacement project by cleaning up the work area, including removing the protective film covering your windows when they were delivered. Aside from clearing debris, they will also put back all things that have been moved to make way for the window replacement. You can also take this opportunity to voice out any concerns you might have so you can have them clarified before your contractor leaves.

After the Installation: Maintaining Your Windows

Choosing the best windows for your home is a crucial step in ensuring the success of a replacement project. However, even the best will benefit from receiving some TLC. Keep in mind that low-maintenance is not the same as no-maintenance. Even just ensuring your replacements windows are clean will go a long way towards making sure they perform as they should. Don’t forget as well that sticking to a maintenance routine is usually a requirement for keeping manufacturer warranties in effect. Aside from regular cleaning, your windows will also call for periodic checks to keep problems at bay, which your local window contractor can take care of for you.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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.

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!!!
