Is 2022 the year for your home windows to be replaced? You probably have some questions about what the process looks like. What you need to do to prepare your space for the renovation? What’s the process like? Here are some commonly asked questions and our answers to help guide you.
How long does it take?
This depends on how many windows are being installed. It also depends what type of products are being installed. If you have a custom window, it may take more time to remove or install. This could impact the overall time frame of the project. When our installation technician comes out to do the final measure of your home’s windows, we provide an estimate on how long it will take, and also give you a timeline on when the products will arrive.
What if I live in an old house?
Older houses have some different things to take into consideration. For example, homes that were built in decades past often have lead paint or window trim that has this type of paint around it. We are a lead-safe company and if your house has lead paint anywhere, we take all precautions to keep you, your family, and our team safe. For each installed window, we tarp it off, so dust and dust particles don’t spread as easily. We also ask that those that are more vulnerable, such as children, pets, or elderly citizens are kept away from the installation area until it is complete and cleaned.
Do all the windows come out at once?
No, we work on one window at a time. Working on one window at a time allows us greater focus, and not to mention, it will keep your home’s interior temperature more comfortable. Also, you can be confident that we won’t ever leave an open space at the end of the day.
Do I have to be there during installation?
That’s up to you. We are okay with either scenario. We often do installation customers while they are away at work or while they are out catching up on errands. No matter what, we treat your home with the utmost care and attention to detail. You can trust that we will respect your space and take good care of it while we’re there.
