How Long Does It Take to Install New Windows?
When replacing the windows on your home, it’s extremely important that you entrust the job to a contractor or window installation company that has ample experience. Window replacement is a job that, if not done the right way, can lead to air and moisture infiltration, which can make your home less comfortable and reduce its energy efficiency. The time it takes to properly install new windows largely depends on how many windows you need to have replaced. As a good rule of thumb, you can expect it to take about 30 minutes for a qualified technician to install one replacement window. So, if you multiply this by how many windows are going to be installed on your home, you should get a pretty decent estimate of how long the actual installation process will take. However, this timeframe can be influenced by a number of factors, such as:
- Whether the windows are standard size or custom built, and whether the replacement windows are the same size as the windows they are replacing
- The experience level of the installer and/or how many workers are on the project
- The material that the windows are made of (wooden windows can often take more time if sanding, priming, and painting are needed)
- Whether the workers will need to use ladders to reach second and third stories, or if all of the windows that need to be replaced are on ground level
On most homes, window replacement projects can be completed in one day, barring any unforeseen issues. You can assist the window installers by removing any blinds, curtains, or other window treatments that are hanging in your windows ahead of time, and by removing or turning off any security sensors on your windows.
