Video: Making Difficult Window Installations Hassle-Free

Installing replacement windows is a challenge in itself, but certain window styles, like picture windows, require even more care and skill to install properly. In the following video, we discuss our installation process and how we make even the most challenging window installations hassle-free.


Our replacement windows are built by our expert craftsmen at our facilities in Minnesota. Styles like picture windows are mostly made of glass, so they require a combination of precise measurements and equally precise craftsmanship—the bigger they are, the more challenging they get. Plus, our replacement windows are built to size, so there’s little room for error. Each delivered replacement window unit is inspected before loaded onto our trucks on installation day.

Installation Day

Our installers will arrive bright and early on installation day and will carefully unload your new windows. As our team leader discusses the installation details with you, the rest of the installers prepare your home—they move your furniture and appliances out of the way, cover them with dust covers, arrange drop cloths around the work areas and wear shoe covers to avoid tracking dirt indoors.

From the simplest double hung window to the most elaborate specialty window, our team exercises great care when installing new windows. To ensure fast installation with minimal exposure to outside conditions, our installers work in pairs, one installer inside and another outside. This method is so efficient that we can install windows even in the middle of winter. The new windows are carefully positioned, shimmed and leveled before being screwed into place. The gaps between the frame and wall will be filled with foam insulation before the trim is installed.

After-Installation Cleanup

All installed windows undergo one further quality check, then our installers will thoroughly clean everything up—the protective film will be removed, the glass will be polished and every speck of dust will be vacuumed. Then everything will be back just the way it was, in some cases even cleaner than when we first arrived.

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.

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.
