5 THINGS YOU SHOULD EXPECT IN A WINDOW REPLACEMENT PROJECT

Even the most seasoned homeowners feel a little nervous when taking on home remodeling projects; it’s normal. Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis believes in the saying, “Expect the best, prepare for the worst,” which is why we’ve prepared a quick guide about what to expect in a window replacement project.

5 Things You Should Expect In A Window Replacement Project

  1. Contingency funds – We st and by the prices stated in our written quotations. But as with every remodeling project, there are small, sometimes unexpected expenses that could involve anything from buying snacks to emergency repairs. it’s better to be on the safe side and have contingency funds ready. 20% of the contract price is a reasonable ceiling amount.
  2. It will be noisy – All home improvement projects tend to be noisy, window replacements included. If you’re expecting to do anything where noise would be intrusive, such as working at home, looking after an infant, or needing to sleep during the day, make arrangements as early as possible: book a shared office space for the day, take the day off work, or have a relative take care of the baby for the day. You may also inform your next-door neighbors as a courtesy, especially if the houses themselves are only a few yards apart.
  3. There will be dust – Expect dust and debris as we install the new windows and remove the old ones, so you may want to buy dust masks beforeh and. We take every precaution to keep everything clean with every window we install: we place drop cloths around the work areas, use protective footwear to prevent tracking dirt into the house, and thoroughly clean up after ourselves. In fact, more than a few clients have remarked that the new windows looked like they magically installed themselves.
  4. Foot traffic – Our installation team has to work on both sides of your window opening, so you should expect a considerable amount foot traffic during installation. Our team will help you with clearing the work areas and carefully move your furniture and valuables out of the way. In addition to the aforementioned footwear, the work areas will be clearly marked, covered, and protected.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
