For window installation first-timers: recognize that familiarity with the process helps you anticipate unplanned changes and make the experience less stressful. Let Renewal by Andersen® help you with this guide to the things you should expect with your next window replacement project.
It Begins With a Consultation
Remodeling projects begin with an in-home consultation. A representative pays a visit and discusses your window replacement requirements. Measurements may also be taken on the same day. If you’re not entirely sure about what kind of replacement windows you want, don’t worry. Expert consultants will patiently work with you, answer any of your questions and ensure that your new windows are exactly what you want.
At the end of a consultation, you should receive a written estimate. The quote should have a detailed description of your window replacement project, including the specific window styles you’ve chosen such as double hung, casement or picture windows. Other details such as project cost, start date and insurance coverage should also be indicated. At Renewal by Andersen, we encourage our customers to take their time to read the estimate carefully, raise questions and make corrections as needed. You can take as much time as you need to review the estimate.
Once you green-light the project and we agree on a window start date, preparations begin by applying for any needed building permits, preparing insurance paperwork and, of course, building your replacement windows. In the meantime, you can prepare the areas around the windows by clearing a path from the entry doors to the windows, boxing any breakable items and, finally, removing window treatments. If you have plantation shutters, you may need to contact your shutter contractor for assistance.
