How long does it take to install windows?

Each replacement window job will have unique factors that make the time it takes to complete the installation of your replacement windows vary. Things your certified professional installer will consider when giving you a quote are

  • Removal of your old windows
  • The type of window you have selected
  • Placement of windows (ladders or scaffolding may be required for multiple stories) 
  • Replacement of trim or other installation issues

Strong Boys Remodel certified professional installers should be able to give you an estimate on how long your window replacement project will take.

Does someone need to be present for the window installation?

Someone from your home will need to be there to let us in the house and answer any questions we may have. Part of the window installation process necessitates that a Strong Boys Remodel Certified Professional Installer go inside your home to set your window according to our high standards and best practices. Your windows will be installed by our highly trained personnel that will respect your home and leaving everything clean.

How messy is the window installation process?

Strong Boys Remodel Certified Professional Installers are trained to install windows and doors with as little disturbance to your home as possible. Our window installers will often use protective coverings such as drop cloths or plastic sheeting to cover your floor and furnishings at and near the work area. We clean up the area before we go taking the debris with us.

What do I need to do to prepare for the window replacement installation?

Strong Boys Remodel prefers that  you remove curtains, blinds or other any window treatments and store them safely in another room. If you have security sensors on your windows, please contact your security company to remove them and replace them on the new windows if necessary.

Please move furniture or anything else in the way of the window itself and try to make a clear path to the windows that are being replaced. If you have any pictures or deco hanging on the walls near the windows being replaced, you may want to remove and safely store them in another room.

Can you install windows at high altitudes?

Strong Boys Remodel has extensive experience and takes extra precaution when installing windows at higher elevations here in Fremont County, Colorado. Windows used at high elevation need to have breather tubes. Breather tubes help relieve pressure between glass panes, which occurs during transportation between altitudes of where the window was manufactured and where we are installing it.

Breather tubes, made of aluminum, are installed between the panes of window glass. When moving windows from the manufacturer to the installation site at higher elevations, the breather tube will be opened to allow air pressure between panes of glass to be equalized in the new climate.

Once the air pressure has been given a chance to equalize, the three to six-inch breather tube is cut to fit and crimped shut. Your newly installed window is then acclimated and expected to offer a long life of service.
