2. Out With The Old: Removing Your Existing Windows
FAQ Answer #4: The cost of our window installation is included in the cost of our windows! That’s right, you don’t have to worry about paying an additional fee on top of the window installation cost!
Back to the process… Our friendly team at The Window Source has shown up to start your installation! The first thing our crew will do is cover your floors for protection and easy clean up. Next, we will remove the window stop, which is a small piece of wood that runs vertically between the window sashes and the trim around the windows. Window stops are fairly easy to remove and don’t require major demolition.
Next, the old window’s wooden sashes and sash rails will be removed without damaging any of the interior trim around your existing opening. The interior trim will not need to be replaced when we’re done.
Finally, we remove the old windows as well as the old stops that held them in place. Now it’s time for the installation.
3. Your Replacement Windows Get Installed
Our happy and helpful Window Source crew will make sure the window opening is clean, clear of debris, and ready for installation. Next, we position your new replacement double-hung windows into the existing opening and check them for proper alignment. Once the window will is plumb, level, and square, we will fasten it securely to the frame. Each window is tested during the installation proce to ensure that it is operating correctly. Finally, we re-install the window stop to its original position and caulk it for an airtight seal. We will finish the job by ensure the exterior of your window is insulated as well.
