Poor window installation can diminish efficiency, impair aesthetics, and weaken performance. But how long does the installation take, and what does the process entail? Find the answers to your questions here.
How Long Does Window Installation Typically Take?
It typically takes about two to six weeks from the time you place your order until your windows arrive (this can vary depending on the time of year and type of windows you order as well).
On installation day, the time it takes to complete your project depends on the type and number of windows you’re installing. In general, you can expect the crew to spend approximately 30 minutes to an hour on each window, removing the old one and putting the new one in its place. For residential projects, the entire job can sometimes be finished in a single day.
What Does the Window Installation Process Entail?
Replacing the windows in your Houston home requires precision and accuracy. A three-phase approach ensures a quality installation and your complete satisfaction.
Leading Up to Installation Day
- The Installer assigned to your project visits your home to take exact window measurements and compile a list of materials the team will need to complete the installation.
- An inside support team member reviews a computer-generated material order. The procurement department carefully checks the order as well to ensure it matches the exact quantities and specifications you need. Then the procurement department places the order.
- The window manufacturer receives an order acknowledgment and begins production.
- When your order arrives in our warehouse, the installer calls you to schedule the installation at a convenient time for you.
On Installation Day
