Measuring the Windows
By the time your contractor is ready for your window installation. You have already gone through the tedious process of picking out the windows you want. And now the next step is, of course, the most important, the installation process. And the first step to installing your new windows is getting precise measurements of the openings for the windows in your home. Proper measurements will ensure that the window will fit precisely into the opening. When a window fits exactly it is able to be weather secure, long-lasting, and protect you from the outdoor elements.
Removal of Old Window
So now, the measurements are completed, the order for the new windows has been placed and have now arrived. Now it is time for the crew to start the window installation. Your contractor and team will begin working by removing the older windows before the replacement can begin. When they begin the work, they will be working very meticulously at this step. To make sure that they don’t cut too far into the original weather barrier. Which usually consists of sheets of specially coated material that’s designed to keep water out of the walls. This step is very important because they want to make sure that the new window will still be integrated into the older weather barrier.
Removal of Old Sealants
Once the windows are removed, the contractor and team will also remove all traces of the sealants that held the old window in place. So, that the new sealants will adhere properly to the opening. Houston Window Installation is a process that is done efficiently, but also done correctly so that there are no future problems with your new windows.
Weatherproofing the Opening
Now that the old windows and sealants have been removed. It is time for the next important step before your new windows will be installed. Weatherproofing the opening is a very important step and is often done by “Flashing”. Flashing can refer to the materials used for weatherproofing a window and also the act of installing the material. Flashing is put around a window from the bottom up. That way, when the water hits it, it runs off the lower portion of the flashing. Meaning, it acts a drains for your windows. So, that water is not constantly pounding on your windows and possible leaking through the windows. Flashing provides a barrier for the weather and longevity for the new windows.
Installing the New Windows
The old windows are removed, sealants removed, and now the opening of the windows have been weatherproofed. Now it is finally time to install your new windows. The crew will now begin to remove any other nails they may see in the openings. Once this is done, then they set the window’s still on the bottom part of the opening. Next, they will slowly push the frame in until all the nailing fins are flush against the wall. Once the window is in place, the contractor will use a level to make sure everything is properly aligned. After that is completed, the contractor will use nails to secure it to the opening, while applying more flashing. Once is it nailed in, sealants are used to make sure the window keeps air out.
