The Art of Mastering Windows

Installation of 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. By contrast, replacement windows, which go under the classification of builder grade or contractor grade is relatively cheaper. 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. It’s imperative that you take hold of the responsibility of managing the crew of installers, being at a calling distance when they would like to verify on a particular thing before installation. 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. Expect that if it is a multi-crew working, one batch will be removing the old windows and another batch will be bringing in the replacement windows, this means that there is a simultaneous procedure of removal and installation going on at the same time, so that at the end of the day, expect that 10 new windows will be installed in day 1.

Day 2 will basically complete the whole installation of the replacement windows, such that there is a continuation of the removing and installing process. 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. Most often, it may take one more day, about 3 days to complete everything, to finish the work since after installing the extended trim on each of the windows inside the house, another extended trim will be installed outside the window and when this is all installed, the window is tested.Lessons Learned from Years with Installs
