Getting replacement windows can be a stressful experience – especially if you’re replacing all of the windows in your home. It’s a massive project that takes time, and there are a number of different factors that can impact how long the project takes. Knowing the timetable for when your project can be finished can allow for proper planning around the project and give you peace of mind knowing when it will be completed.
One of the biggest things that can take a lot of the mystery out of your project’s timetable is working with a trusted Denver window company. Reputable window installers will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to your project, and will remain in touch with you throughout the entire process – keeping you up to speed on any schedule changes or hurdles they encounter.
Main Factors That Impact Your Project’s Time
Getting the right windows for your home might be as simple as you think. The more windows you need to replace will obviously extend the installation time, but it’s also important to note if you need any custom-built windows. Those might take longer to build and will have to be shipped to your installer. The size of the windows also makes a difference, as does the material of the walls that surrounds the spaces where the new windows will be installed.
If the windows need to be replaced due to extensive damage, this can also impact the time it takes to remove the old frames, as well as getting the new windows installed and sealed correctly. Windows can generally be installed in one day, as it takes roughly 30 minutes to install each window – barring any unforeseen issues. Make sure to take any necessary precautions for your home before installation day arrives, and it can take some of the stress out of the process.
How to Get Ready for Window Installation
Your window professional is going to be prepared to do the installation, but you can help them out by making some preparations before they show up. You can start by taking down your window treatments. If the installer has to do this, it can add a good chunk of time to their process. It’s also important to make sure the path to each window is cleared for the installer, so that they have room to maneuver. Also remove anything on the walls that could get into the way of the installation, and place drop cloths on the floor to protect your carpets and flooring.
If your home is part of a local Homeowner’s Association (HOA), it’s important to check with their rules before installing new windows, as well. The HOA may have regulations about the type of windows that need to be installed, or regarding the timeframe for doing the replacement. Anything you can do to make the installers job easier will almost certainly be welcome, and don’t be afraid to ask them if they need anything done.
