Will the windows be installed from the outside or inside?

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 and at a time and are trained to close any doors to the room they are working in to minimize heat loss.
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 for my windows to arrive? How much time should I allow for the installation?
Your windows will be installed within 4-8 weeks from the date of the final measurement. The installation time varies based on the type of window being installed and the type being removed. Normally it takes about 30 minutes per window. Trims and other work will require additional time to complete. A job is typically completed in a single day.
What warranty is available with the windows?
All our windows come with a 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 and screens?
We generally remove all debris from your property and dispose of it. If you would like to keep your old windows or storms, please notify the installer as soon as he arrives for your installation.
