How Long Does It Take to Install New Windows?

Getting replacement windows can be a stressful experience, especially if you are replacing all the windows in your home. It’s a huge project that takes time, and there are several different factors that can affect the length of the project. Knowing the timeline for the completion of your project can allow for proper project planning and give you peace of mind knowing when it will be completed.

One of the most important things that can take much of the mystery out of your project timeline is working with a reliable window company in Denver. Reputable window installers will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to your project and will stay in touch with you throughout the process, keeping you informed of any schedule changes or obstacles they encounter.

Main factors impacting your project’s timing

Getting the right windows for your home can 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 consider if you need custom windows. They may take longer to build and will need to be sent to your installer. The size of the windows also makes a difference, as does the material of the walls surrounding the spaces where the new windows will be installed.

If windows need to be replaced due to major damage, this can also affect the time it takes to remove the old frames, as well as the proper installation and sealing of the new windows. Windows can usually be installed in one day, as it takes approximately 30 minutes to install each window, barring any unforeseen problems. Be sure to take the necessary precautions for your home before installation day arrives, as this can alleviate some of the stress of the process.

Preparing for window installation

Your window professional will be prepared to perform the installation, but you can help them by making some preparations before they show up. You can start by removing the draperies from your windows. If the installer has to do this, it can add a good amount of time to your process. It’s also important to make sure the path to each window is clear for the installer so he has room to maneuver. Also remove anything from the walls that might get in the way of the installation and place drop cloths on the floor to protect the carpets and flooring.

If your home is part of a local Homeowners Association (HOA), it’s also important to check their rules before installing new windows. The Homeowners Association may have regulations about the type of windows that must be installed or the time frame for replacement. Almost certainly anything you can do to make the installers’ job easier will be welcome, and don’t be afraid to ask them if they need anything done.
