At some point in time, everyone must go through the window replacement process. After determining the cost of the project, there is one question that every buyer has about home window replacement: how long does it take? The average timeline for window replacement is around 4-6 weeks for delivery and 40-60 minutes for installation per window.
At K&J Windows, we work with top-notch installers to ensure that the quality of our windows is met with the same caliber of installers. We oversee the entire window replacement process so you can rest assured that you are getting the highest quality of service and products. In this guide to how long window replacements take, we will walk you through the process so you know what kind of timeline to expect.
Window Replacement: First Steps
After you select from one of K&J’s various window styles and a contract is signed, a date will be scheduled for one of our professional installers to come and take measurements of the openings.
Multiple measurements will be taken to assure that your custom fit window is a perfect match. After determining the specific windows needed, the installer will order custom fit windows from the manufacturer. Once the order has been placed, it typically takes between 4 and 6 weeks for the windows to arrive.
Prepping For The Window Replacement
Not sure how to prep for a window replacement? We are here to help! Here are a few easy things you can do to prepare for the installation of your new windows:
- Remove security sensors.
- Take down any curtains or rods.
- Move any furniture within the vicinity of the window.
- Provide a clear path from the window to the door.
By taking care of these simple tasks, you allow the installer to dedicate all of their time to the installation and provide you with the best possible service.
Window Replacement: Installation Time
At K&J Windows, our highly experienced installers are able to install 10-15 windows in a day, depending on a few factors. One window generally takes around 40-60 minutes to install. However, times can vary depending on the size of the opening.
The window replacement installation process often takes only one day, but if you have a larger number of windows to replace then it could take longer. There are a few other factors that could delay the window replacement process, including:
- Inclimate weather.
- The type of walls surrounding the window.
- Obstructions inside or outside the home.
After the Window Replacement: Final Steps
Once the installer has finished with installation and cleanup, you will have the opportunity to take a walk-through and check out your new windows. During this time, if you notice anything that looks off, our installer will fix it on the spot.
At the time of the walk-through, you should open and close each new window a few times to ensure that they work properly. If you wind up noticing something that doesn’t look right a few days later, simply give us a call and we will send someone out to correct the issue.
