Table of Contents

When the time comes to replace old windows with new ones, you need professional replacement window installers. These trained specialists can come to your home, swap out old windows for newer, energy-efficient, and more beautiful varieties, and leave your home looking and feeling better than ever?

Not sure what to expect from your upcoming appointment? Here’s how CoMo Premium Exteriors’ professional window replacement installers do their top-tier work.

Installation Factors that Affect Time Required

Naturally, our installation plan and timing will vary based on your home:

  • Size
  • Age
  • Type of exterior materials (siding, brick, fiber cement siding)
  • Availability of the windows
  • Interior factors such as existing trim
  • Installation methods of existing windows
  • Total number of windows being replaced
  • If any of the existing window sizes are being increased in size
  • And more

Window Delivery and Setup

Typically, new windows can take 3 weeks to 6 months to arrive depending on the type of window, sizes, and the additional features that are added.  However, once the windows arrive a delivery is scheduled with the customer, and windows are delivered within a few days of the anticipated installation.  On the day of installation the crew will have several things to set up and prepare, but within an hour or so will get started.  Homeowners need to plan and take down blinds, curtains, or other window coverings before the installation team’s arrival.

It All Starts with Removing Nearby Siding

For example, if you choose regular vinyl replacement windows, the installation always starts with removing nearby siding around the existing window. Don’t worry – we take good care of the siding and will replace it once the new window has been installed in place of the old one.  During this process, we are making sure the new windows are properly insulated and sealed to prevent wind drafts around the new window.

By the time we’re done, things look back to normal or good as new.

How Do Professional Replacement Window Installers Install New Windows: Access to the Inside

As part of the installation process, the window installers will require access to the inside of the home, which is another reason why it is important to hire a reputable and trustworthy company to install your new windows. CoMo Premium Exteriors installers will always be respectful of your home and not track in mud or dirt.  In addition, they will clean up and do their best to minimize dirt or damage.

Interior Work

As much as possible, CoMo Premium Exteriors works to install pocket replacement windows that won’t require changing existing drywall, paint, or trim.  If this type of interior work is required it will be part of the discussion with the homeowner.  However, many times there will be some interior caulking that will be required.

What Crew is Needed?

In general, a contractor crew from CoMmo Premium Exteriors only needs two or three professionals on hand to install the most typical windows. There are exceptions – for example, large bay windows or bulky windows may require a few extra pairs of hands to get the job done.

Still, most replacement window installation appointments will not require dozens of guys walking around your property for hours on end. At CoMmo Premium Exteriors, we pride ourselves on installing replacement windows quickly, efficiently, and with a minimum of intrusion for our clients.

How Long Does a Replacement Window Job Take?

As efficiently, quickly, and cleanly as possible!

More specifically, we always try to balance efficiency with taking our time to minimize mistakes and ensure that window installation goes off without a hitch. We want to make sure that we don’t need to do extra caulking before leaving and that a window is properly sealed and secured by the time we leave.

We understand that installing a replacement window in your home could track dust or dirt onto hardwood floors are carpet. That’s why we wear boot covers when we head indoors and vacuum up after ourselves as we wrap up.

By the time we’re done, you won’t even know we were there (except for the presence of the excellent replacement window(s), of course!).

In total, our contractors can install between five and eight windows per day over a standard eight-hour workday. Keep in mind that this can vary depending on window type, obstructions, current installation methods of existing windows, and other factors.
