The process is fairly simple and will not only keep you comfortable, but give you great peace of mind. And once you commit to replacement windows, here is what you can expect.
Benefits of Replacement Windows

- Lower energy expenses
- Better visibility
- Less fading
- Reduced moisture and condensation
- Increased security
- Better return on your investment
- Pests and intruders kept out
The Installation Process
Once you choose your replacement windows and it is time to have them installed in your home, this is a generalized list of what happens.
- Before the Installers Arrive
A few days prior to installation our office will touch base with you to confirm the date of installation. We will also clarify any specific instructions and address any questions or concerns you might have. You will also get instructions on how to prepare your home for the installation crew. You will want to clear away any drapes and blinds, move the furniture out of the way, and disable any alarms. That way, as soon as the crew shows up, they can get to work.
- Meet with the Job Foreman
On the day of installation, the lead of the installation crew will walk through the home and go over each window that requires replacement. They complete an inspection to ensure the best installation. This is the time to catch any errors. While they are not common, mistakes can happen. Better to get ahead of them at this early juncture. The job foreman will also give you an expected completion time.
At Scientific Home Solutions we treat your home as if it were our own. Before starting work, the team will put down drop cloths and cover any furniture in proximity to the job sites. Because window removal does involve some construction, there will be some dust and debris. But we will do everything possible to keep the mess to a minimum and clean up as soon as we are done.
- Window Removal and Replacement
The team then takes out each window, and replaces it in turn. During the removal process our team will ensure your home is not damaged and will work hard to protect the walls, trim, and paint. Once the old window is out the new window goes in, the crew will insulate and seal the window, capping the exterior. In one day, depending on the types of windows and size of the crew, most installation teams can get about 10 windows removed and replaced.
- Finish and Clean Up
Once all the windows are replaced and the job is complete, you can walk through again with the foreman for an inspection. They will show you each window and how it works. This way you can ensure the job is completed properly and all windows function as they should. Then, before leaving, the crew will clean up each worksite, leaving no trace.
