Since installation of replacement windows is an infrequent event and can only take place if the homeowner is planning to get rid of all the old windows and replace them with new ones, the installation process is something to be learned on, especially since it's dealing with a fragile material. It is always good to seek out for replacement windows, since they are designated as builder grade or contractor grade windows, which are relatively cheaper.

 

It's advisable to take off from work for a few days or bring your work to your house when you're hiring a window service company to install new windows to the entire windows of your house; in this way, you can keep watch over the installation work and, at the same time, keep an eye on your valuables, since the window installers will be coming into each room to replace the old windows.  Before they installers arrived in your home, all valuables including the small items must be locked away in your safe or in a locked cabinet; this is to avoid any temptations that may arise within the installers.  It's imperative that you take hold of the responsibility of managing the crew of installers, being at a calling distance when they would like to verify on a particular thing before installation.

 

The first day of installation should be a thorough discussion with the foreman on your conditions while installation is going on, and they are: drop cloths inside the room must be properly placed and drop cloths outside must also be installed for protecting your flowerbeds, no tools should be left in the house, rooms are broom-clean, the removal of old windows left outside the house, and no windows left open for installation the next day.  Expect that if it is a multi-crew working, one batch will be removing the old windows and another batch will be bringing in the replacement windows, this means that there is a simultaneous procedure of removal and installation going on at the same time, so that at the end of the day, expect that 10 new windows will be installed in day 1.

Day 2 will basically complete the whole installation of the replacement windows, such that there is a continuation of the removing and installing process.  The next batch of work, after the completion of the new window installation is the installation of the exterior trim or cladding inside each window, which is need to to tightly seal the window against inclement weather conditions.  In most installation time, it will take about 3 days to complete the entire installation work, since after installing the extended trim, another batch of extended trim will have to be installed outside the windows until all have been completed and, after which, all windows are tested.
