OUR PROCESS

 

THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF HAVING YOUR WINDOWS REPLACED IS RELATIVELY SIMPLE. 

WE HAVE A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO KEEP ON SCHEDULE AND 

PERFORM YOUR PROJECT AS EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE.

Once the contract is signed and deposit received, the process starts. Exact measurements are taken of all windows to be replaced. Most of our projects require made-to-fit windows, so production times need to be taken into account. This is why the windows are ordered as quickly as possible. Most windows take about 2-3 weeks to be manufactured, although it can be longer for specialty windows or orders during high demand periods. Any windows that will be moved, enlarged or newly created will require permits from your town. We can assist you in processing the permit paperwork, including providing you with any municipally required drawings at no extra charge. We can also pull the permits directly, however state law requires in that case we must provide drawings sealed by a licensed architect. We have architects at our disposal to handle these requirements, however there are additional charges. We can also work with your architect if you choose. Actual permit charges vary from town to town.

Window replacement without modification to the openings does not require permits.

When the windows are ready they will be delivered to the job site and will require a place to be stored, preferably indoors. A garage or shed works well.  An average house's worth of double hung windows takes up about 30 square feet of floorspace. We arrange the installation  to begin within a few days of receipt of the windows. If there are only a few windows being replaced/installed, the windows will be brought with the installer on the first day of installation. 
Installations last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks, depending on the size and scope of the project. The average single family house takes about 5-7 working days. During this time, the jobsite will be cleaned at the end of every day and all removed windows/materials and stationary tools will be discreetly compiled and covered in a designated area on the property until removed at the end of the project. We strive to disrupt the interior of the house as little as possible. Minimal dust/debris is typically limited to the immediate area in front of the window. Clean up is performed as soon as we have completed the interior stage of installation in a particular room. 

Any projects which required permits will require inspections. We can make the necessary arrangements with your municipality to schedule these. Typically, two are needed: 1)to view the new framing and insulation prior to any drywall being installed and 2)to view the completed job. These inspections are required by the state to protect you, we will not proceed to the drywall stage of project until we have passed the framing/insulation inspection.

Last is the walk through. All the windows are operated and inspected from the inside & outside. Operating and cleaning instructions are discussed. Any rebate forms and/or warranties are distributed. The jobsite is left clean, more aesthetically pleasing and more energy efficient...Enjoy!
