Will the replacement windows be installed from the inside or outside?

Do you install windows during the winter? If so, will I lose a lot of heat at the time of installation?
Window World installs windows year round. A standard installation will take only one day. Our installers install one window at a time and are trained to close any doors to the room they are working in to minimize heat loss. The energy savings from the new windows will recover any additional costs incurred within a few days.
How do I prepare my house for installation?
Please remove your curtains, blinds, and/or window treatments. Security devices should also be removed or deactivated by your security company. Please provide the installer with a clear path to the window by moving any personal items or furniture that is in front of the windows. It is also advisable to remove all wall decorations from the walls close to the windows.
How long will it take to get my replacement windows? How much time should I allow for the installation?
Your replacement windows will be installed within 4-8 weeks from the date that the final measurements are taken. The type of replacement window being installed and type being removed help determine the amount of time needed to install your replacement windows. On average each window takes about 30 minutes. Trim work and cleanup will require additional time to complete. An average job will take a single day.
What type of warranty is available for my windows?
All of our Window World replacement windows come with a limited lifetime warranty. However a double lifetime “transferable”, lifetime glass breakage, lifetime seal failure, and installation warranties are available. Contact us for more details.
What happens to my old windows & Screens?
