What to Expect During Window Replacement Procedures

The right windows can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and boost your curb appeal at the same time. To help homeowners get more acquainted with the installation process, we’ve taken the liberty of breaking things down for you. Here’s a look at the things you can expect during a window installation procedure.

Window Selection and Measurement Process

When you contact our representative, you’ll be asked a series of questions regarding your plans. These include queries such as the types of windows you’re interested in purchasing, the styles, frames and other aspects such as glazing options, as well as your budget. We’ll then take the necessary measurements and provide you with a written estimate so you can calibrate your expectations.

Window Permit Procurement

Permit acquisition is perhaps the most important step of all. As with any other home improvement project, you’ll need to check if you are conforming to existing codes. Without the necessary paperwork, you may find your window installation project stopped. This can be troublesome as you may have to take down whatever work has already been completed.

Window Installation Scheduling

The duration of the installation project will depend on the number of windows you plan to install. As a general rule of thumb, however, it is advisable to set aside two to three days for the project’s completion. There are circumstances that can interfere with it, such as inclement weather and unforeseen additional repairs. It pays to make contingency plans as they prepare you for the unexpected. Your contractor may discover underlying issues, but taking precautions can go a long way in saving you time and effort.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
