Homeowners who are undertaking home improvements for the first time often find the preparatory stage stressful. Many say that this is because they didn’t know what to expect, and are anxious of what they should do in case anything goes off-track. Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha-Lincoln has installed thousands of replacement windows in Omaha, NE, and we understand how knowing what to expect can give you peace of mind. Here’s how a typical window replacement goes:
After the initial consultations and finalizing the material selection, we take detailed measurements of your window opening. We also address pre-installation concerns at this stage. As all our replacement windows are built to fit, there will be no modifications made to your existing walls.
We then proceed to manufacture the windows. The actual installation date would be scheduled much later, depending on the season, the size of the project, and the number of projects we would be working on at the time. We never change the installation date unless extenuating circumstances are in play, such as inclement weather. We recommend moving any valuables, furniture, and anything hanging from the walls away from the window areas.
We arrive bright and early to make most of the day. We begin preparing for window replacement in Omaha by unloading the equipment and preparing your home for the installation. This includes marking the work area around the windows and covering the landscaping. Our team wears protective footing and installs covers on walkways to prevent tracking dirt into your house.
We then remove the existing windows. Our team is trained to do this without harming the existing structure. We then perform clean ups and leveling as needed before starting the installation proper. The process itself is simplified so we don’t spend too long on any single window and make sure we only need to visit your home for the day.
We then make sure the windows open and close properly, with the areas surrounding the frames sealed.
After the installation is completed, we first perform a thorough quality inspection, polish the windows thoroughly, and then walk you through the functions of the new windows. Afterward, we will inspect our work and answer any questions you might have. Once you’re satisfied, we proceed with the final cleanup, including proper disposal of the old windows.
