Your window installation day: what to expect
Most homeowners we work with don’t realize how simple window installations can be. Having your windows replaced can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t understand the process, so we’d like to hear your concerns and questions.
Typical questions include:
Our goal is to ensure that our customers are fully informed about the installation process. The following are some of the most commonly asked questions we receive from customers before they purchase replacement windows.
- What is the likelihood of my interior window trim being damaged or needing to be replaced?
- With new windows, will my window blinds still fit?
- How long will it take for the installation process to be completed?
- What is the cost of installation?
- When I place my order, how long will it take for my windows to be installed?
The Window Source Installation Process
Your window openings are accurately measured.
A good quality installation is just as important as a quality window. It starts with an accurate measurement and ordering the properly sized replacement window to allow for a good fit with enough tolerance to plumb and square the new window in place.
Your new windows are custom manufactured.
After your window consultant inspects and measures your openings, your new windows are custom manufactured for a precise fit. Before leaving our state of the art manufacturing facility your new windows are inspected to insure your complete satisfaction. All units leave the plant with an NFRC label attached so that you can verify the performance of you new windows.
Your new windows are installed.
Your old windows are removed and your new windows are installed. The new windows are squared and plumbed to provide a good fit and proper operation. The windows had been carefully measured and your replacement windows were custom manufactured to allow for enough tolerance for a proper installation. A bead of silicone caulking is applied around the entire perimeter to seal around your new window.
Custom exterior cappings are installed. (optional)
If you choose this popular option you will never have to paint the exterior casings around your new maintenance-free windows. Our installer will custom cut and fit aluminum capping material with a maintenance-free finish. The capping also acts as a flashing to protect the opening from water penetration. Also we may leave your interior moldings undisturbed with this option. The capping material is available in a variety of colors.
Final adjustments & inspection
Your new windows are inspected and any necessary adjustments are made for proper operation. All old windows and debris from the job are removed. All work areas are thoroughly cleaned up. You are then presented with a customer satisfaction survey to assure that we have met all of your contract specifications. A great product at a great price with a top quality installation; that’s how we strive to earn your loyalty and more new customers every day.
