What to Expect: Our Window Replacement Process
Renewal by Andersen has put together a guide to the replacement process so there are no surprises during your project. We love it when a plan comes together. This is the process that we follow every time we perform window replacement.
Pre-Installation Custom Measurements
The process begins with our factory trained professionals taking notes and measurements to assure your home receives the care necessary to make you happy.
Step One: We Arrive at Your Property
Once our installation crew has proper measurements, our crew from Renewal by Andersen of Northern Virginia_DC comes to your home ready for the job ahead. Inside, we have everything tool and piece of knowledge to create eye-catching designs to make your home feel new again.
Step Two: We Construction-Proof Your Home
We understand the worries associated with window replacement. To counteract this stress, our team carefully removes furniture and valuables away from your windows and doors to avoid damage. Our team dons protective footwear to ensure cleanliness.
Step Three: We Take Out Your Old Windows
Once our team properly sets up in your home, we remove your obsolete windows. Our crew puts their knowledge to use to avoid dust and debris buildup in your room.
Step Four: We Install Your New Windows
Thanks to our pre-installation measurements, your old windows pose no threat. If the open area has warped (a common occurrence), we realign and readjust the levels to allow the new replacement windows to fit properly. We then test every aspect of your replacement windows to ensure they open and close easily and that the sashes of the window operate properly.
Step Five: We Weatherproof Your Home
Although a small gap between your new windows and the house frame exists, our installers fill this with a special insulation foam to eliminate any drafts. Once in place, your windows will be airtight, weatherproof, and energy efficient.
Step Six: We Put Our Finishing Touches on the Job
The foam used to insulate your windows is not exactly visually appealing. however, we rectify this by covering the foam with a trim to accentuate your interior to remove the unsightly foam.
Step Seven: We Cleanup and We’re On Our Way
When delivered, each of your new windows comes protected by a protective film. Step seven involves the removal of this film, the cleaning of our work area, the shining of any glass areas, and putting your furniture back in its proper place. After this, all that is left is to enjoy your new windows and to take a deep breath knowing you cut your energy consumption.
