The performance of your windows depends on several factors: materials, installation process, and warranties. In this two-part blog, we focus on how the installation and warranty of your replacement windows can make or break their long-term performance.
Replacement windows can only perform well when installed properly. At Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, we provide the advantage of handling the entire window replacement from start to finish. Our technical measures ensure that your new windows will be a precise fit for the existing wall openings, and our manufacturing and shipping teams ensure that the windows are built to exact specifications.
Our expert installation team then steps in to deliver the promises we’ve made. We are highly critical of the quality of our installations, which is why we only hire the best installers. Each team member undergoes rigorous training and must obtain the proper certifications before they can work on their first window replacement. We are so confident of our teams’ ability to deliver that we include a two-year installation coverage in our Limited Warranty—more on this on our next installment.
Our installation team rigorously adheres to an efficient installation process. They begin by preparing the installation site by cleaning the work areas and placing drop cloths around the area. They then remove the windows, and our team performs repairs as needed before inserting the new windows.
The installation of the new windows is the most critical part. The replacement windows have to be properly anchored and the edges between the wall and the window frames insulated and sealed. A single misstep can compromise your home’s energy efficiency. Once completed, we perform a thorough quality check with the homeowner, after which we clean up and dispose of your old windows ourselves.
In our concluding installment, we will discuss another important aspect of window performance: our Limited Warranty.
