Seven Steps to New Windows
Here’s what you can expect when you choose Renewal by Andersen of Eastern New York for replacement windows:
All Renewal by Andersen® windows and doors are custom manufactured to fit your home – and only your home. No “off-the-shelf” solutions for our customers! We send a technician to accurately measure each opening in your home so that your new windows or doors will be a perfect fit.
Step One: Arrival on Installation Day
Our experience crew will arrive at your home at the pre-appointed date and time, ready to get to work immediately. We’ll bring along all of your custom-made windows or doors, plus all the tools and equipment we need to complete the installation. We even supply our own electrical power.
Step Two: Protecting Your Home
The first step we’ll take is to conduct an inspection of your home and prepare the job site. We’ll move any furniture, draperies or wall hangings that may be in the area slated for replacement, then place drop cloths inside your home to protect your floors. Our technicians even wear covers on their shoes to avoid tracking mud or dirt into your home.
Step Three: Removal of the Old Windows
Before we can install your new windows, we need to take the old windows out. We’ll carefully remove the existing windows, working to avoid damaging framing or drywall around the opening. We’ll haul away the old windows for recycling or proper disposal.
Step Four: Installation!
Each new window or door is carefully placed into the opening for which it was made. We make sure the windows are level, as all homes tend to “settle” over the years. A perfectly level window or door will operate more smoothly, so we may use shims to achieve the right balance. Once we are satisfied we’ll secure your window firmly into the framework of your home.
Step Five: Closing Any Gaps
A small gap is likely to be present between your window and the frame of your house. We fill this gap with a special insulating foam that is designed to work with our Fibrex® frame material. This creates an airtight seal to keep out exterior breezes and keep your home’s energy inside where it belongs.
Step Six: Airtight Seals
The insulating foam and edge of the window frame is then covered by the finishing trim in the color and finish you have selected. The trim is sealed with same-color caulking material to further prevent any water leaks or air infiltration.
Step Seven: Final Testing and Clean Up
Once the window trim has been sealed and stained or painted, we remove the protective plastic sheeting that covers your new windows. Then we’ll clean and shine the windows for the clearest view, followed by a full test of window operations – open, close, tilt-in of sashed windows, screens – the works! We’ll demonstrate these functions so you’ll be familiar with your new windows. Then we’ll clean up after ourselves, including removing any dirt, vacuuming, re-hanging window treatments, and replacing your furniture.
Now you are ready to enjoy many years of performance and value from your Renewal by Andersen windows and doors!
