Shoppers consider quality, style, and energy efficiency when shopping for new windows. Today’s consumer researches these details online to learn about their options. Once you have selected the most appropriate window for your home, installers take care of the rest. The best home improvement experiences take place when you are knowledgeable about what you buy, as well as the services you contract. Would you like to know more about the window installation process? Below lists an overview of what to expect.
The first step of window installation is to remove the old fixtures. While it may seem like the easiest part, installers have to exercise caution. Installers return the siding they remove at the end of the installation. To be sure it stays intact, they remove it carefully. The technicians preserve these pieces so that they can be easily put back in place. Once the old window is removed, the installers check the rough opening to confirm the new window will fit nicely.
Out with the Old and in with the New
Installing your new windows is a smooth process if Step 1 is completed correctly. So what exactly does installing new windows entail? Technicians level, secure, and insulate the new windows. Insulating around the window helps cut down on drafts, and supports the energy efficiency of your replacement windows. Batting insulation (rolled fiberglass) or expansion foam fills in gaps between the opening and the actual window.
Technicians install windows from the outside, and complete finishing touches on the inside. New interior casing replaces the old, once the window is securely in place. Professional window installers remove all left over materials as well as the old window to leave you with a beautiful finished product in a clean setting.
