Our installers install one window and at a time and are trained to do what they can minimize heating/cooling loss. The energy savings from the new windows will recover any additional costs incurred within a few days.
How can I prepare my house for my replacement windows?
Please take down curtains, blinds, or any other window treatments. Security sensors should also be removed and turned off by your security company.

It is also advisable to remove all wall decorations from the walls close to the windows as they may fall during removal or installation.

Most jobs can be completed in one to three days.
