When you’re looking for vinyl replacement windows for your home, you will spend a lot of time comparing product specifics and benefits like energy efficiency and more.
But another important factor to consider is the installation plan for your new vinyl replacement windows. Will you hire a contractor to install the windows you purchased online? Will the company you bought replacement windows from provide installation? Or do you need another installation arrangement?
It’s important to make sure that your plan ensures the proper installation of your windows and also provides protection for your home. To do that, you need to make sure that you follow these three keys to successful vinyl replacement window installation.
Key #1: The Right People
Not all window installers are the same. You need your window installation to be done properly, and that takes experience. This means both years of experience installing windows, and also specific product knowledge about the replacement windows being installed.
This is an area where Taylors Windows® provides an added benefit to our customers. Our installation crews are all in-house employees, not outside contractors. And they only install the products we manufacture and sell. This means that you can trust that your Taylors Windows® installation team knows exactly what needs to be done to make sure your vinyl replacement windows are properly installed in your house. Not every replacement window company provides this assurance of expertise.
Using only in-house installers also allows Taylors Windows® to know who is going to be in your home.
Our commitment to hiring, training, and sending professional window installers to your home is why we get reviews like this one: “(Our installer) was extremely thorough, and we so appreciate his attention to detail. He had to spend some long days working on our home, but we loved having him here, and his work and clean up are second to none!”
Key #2: The Right Approach
When installation day comes, your window installers should be prepared to work efficiently and carefully. Taylors Windows® installers do just that, as this customer review shows: “Taylors Windows®’ professional, friendly, 3-man installation crew installed our 27 windows in 1 1/2 days. They had to come inside to caulk. They helped move items away from the windows and pictures off the walls that could possibly fall. They were very respectful and considerate. They even cleaned before they left!”
Just as replacement window installers should be respectful of your home, they should also be cognizant of your comfort during installation. They can do this by doing things like working on one section of your home at a time, so that you can enjoy climate-controlled comfort and freedom from noise in another area while they work.
These steps are common courtesy, but not every window installer thinks of them. Make sure that you choose window installers who do the job well and treat you well too.
Key #3: The Right Cleanup
Even after your replacement windows are installed, the job doesn’t end there. You want to hire window installers who clean up any debris and put things back in place. This is a safety issue, because you don’t want rogue nails or debris left where people could step on them. It also enables you to enjoy your new windows right away, without any additional work on your part.
If you look at the online reviews about Taylors Window, you’ll see that caring enough to clean up is a recurring theme. We train our in-house window installation teams to leave your house better than they found it, and reviews show that our installers do exactly that.
Installation is a key that helps to unlock the long-term benefits of your vinyl replacement windows. So make sure you pick the right product, and that you pick a window installation company that has the right people, the right approach, and the right cleanup.
