What To Expect!
Exterior Home Replacement is something someone should only have to do once or twice in a lifetime. We want to make sure you have the different steps it takes to replace your windows, doors, and/or siding.
During a consultation, a window expert visits the home and goes over each replacement window. They look at the current windows, home’s orientation, and take measurements to assess the needs of the buyer. Then they will sit down with the homeowner and find the right window styles, materials, and glazing options for their home and budget. Once the client makes selections they get a finalized quote. It details the products, labor costs, warranty, etc. The company orders the replacement windows and schedules a time for delivery and installation.
A few days before the installation the staff contacts the homeowner to confirm the appointment. The representative lets the client know the products have arrived and confirms the time of the appointment. They also provide instructions on how to prepare the home for installation. They encourage the removal of drapes, wall hangings, and furniture that might interfere with the process. This is a good time for the homeowner to ask questions about the installation process and understand how they can make things quicker and easier for the installation team.
On the day of installation, the job foreman walks through the home with the homeowner. Together they check off which windows are on the list and make sure they have the right products ready. While it is rare, mistakes can happen. It is good to get all the details straight before starting the removal process and realizing a product is missing.
The installation team gets to work preparing the home for installation. Window removal and installation require some demolition and they do what they can to keep the site safe and clean throughout the process. This means setting up tarps, drape cloths, tools, scaffolding, and ladders. Once that is all in place they are ready to start.
Once the old window is out the installers immediately replace it with the new one. This way the home is not exposed to the elements overnight if the project bleeds into a second or third day. During installation, the crew ensures the proper fit, levels the window with shims, and secures it in place. Then they add the insulation and calking and finish off by cladding the exterior.
The number of replacement windows determines the number of days the project takes. Most window installation projects take two or three days. On the last day, the team installs the last of the windows and begins the removal of their tools, scaffolding, traps, and drapes. They meticulously clean up the workspace so the only things left are the replacement windows.
Before calling it a day the job foreman performs a final walk-through with the homeowner. They make sure all the windows meet the client’s expectations as well as discuss the proper care, operation, and maintenance of the new products. This is a good time for the homeowner to confirm details about the warranty on products and services.
