The windows and doors of your home are both interior and exterior features, which means that they are subjected to wear and tear coming from both outdoor and inside sources. Over the years, your windows and doors take quite a beating from temperature fluctuations, harsh weather, and other elements both inside and outside of the home, and might eventually need repairs or replacement to ensure that they are looking and functioning at their best.
Door and Window Replacement
Replacing windows and doors is a tedious process that is best left to the professionals for the best outcome. At ProEdge Remodeling by Custom Built, Inc., our replacement windows and doors company in Rhode Island, specializes in installing beautiful, high-quality windows and doors throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Albany NY.
While our team is able to handle your installation from start to finish, there are a few things you need to know about the process of installing new doors or replacement windows. In this article, we’ll share some important details about this critical upgrade and some helpful tips to ensure that your installation adds lasting value to your home investment.
Getting Your Measurements
One of the first steps in replacing your home’s windows and doors is to have a professional visit your home for a consultation. During this initial home visit, the contractor will measure your existing products for exact accuracy when ordering new ones and will also give you an estimate to determine what you’ll pay for the project.
You can take measurements on your own if you plan on doing most of the work yourself, but we don’t recommend this unless you’re experienced in window or door installation. Replacing these products can be tricky and difficult, and a bad installation can cause problems and result in a more expensive project.
Choosing The Right Windows and Doors
If you choose to go with new replacement windows and doors, you will need to pick out the style that you want for your home. Windows and doors come in a huge variety of styles, materials, colors, and designs, and most people rely on a designer to help them make the best choices for aesthetic and functional value.
If you’re choosing your own products, make sure to find the windows and doors that offer the best durability, energy-efficiency, and beauty at the lowest prices possible. For replacement windows, we recommend double- and triple-pane models for the best value. For doors, fiberglass and steel entry doors are stylish and efficient choices. In either case, you’ll want to choose products that offer the most resistance to wear and tear without requiring heavy maintenance.
Preparing for the Window Installation
Once you have your openings installed and the windows picked out, it is time to have them installed. You will need to make sure that you have the area cleared out for the contractors to make their job easier and faster. The replacement window installation contractors will come in and install the windows and doors quickly and professionally, to ensure 100% customer satisfaction. Once finished, they will do one final inspection to insure everything is installed to their specific standards.
At ProEdge Remodeling, we take pride in making sure that the installation is fast, efficient, and of the highest quality. That’s why we offer lifetime warranties on both products and services for our customers, to help our customers rest assured that their installation will provide the very best value for their money for decades to come.
