Expert Window Installation – The MOST Important Ingredient
Investing in new windows for your home and making a decision on which window brand is going to be the best for your needs and budget is the easy part. Naturally homeowners expect that with their new windows will come expert installation. Investing in even the best window means absolutely nothing if it is not installed correctly by highly trained and experienced window installers. Many window companies claim their installers have years of experience, been through the best training programs and use the best window installation products, but unfortunately this is not always the case.
At Atlas Windows and Doors our installation technicians have been through the popular installation training programs as well. However, our window installation technicians have been installing windows and doors since the early 1990’s and have encountered just about every situation imaginable. They have the experience and know how to address any challenge that may arise. While the window replacement training programs are essential, real world field experience is hard to match. Not only are our technicians experts in their field, you have the experience of a General Building Contractor to support in this effort as well.
So, what really happens during the installation of your new Atlas Vinyl Retrofit Windows? Here is a brief summary: On the day of your installation we stage your new windows in the appropriate areas and begin to remove your old windows, except for the existing frame. One of the benefits of purchasing retro-fit windows is the existing opening is not disturbed and the original frame of the window stays intact, removing only the glass panels from the existing window.
Next we apply waterproof Tremco TremGlaze silicone to the outside around the flange of your new retro-fit window and slide your new window into place. The silicone application seals the flange to the wall creating a waterproof barrier between the window and the outside of your home. We secure the new window in place with galvanized screws and finish it off with another TremGlaze waterproof silicone seal around the edge of the window flange and wall.
Once all of your new windows have been installed we apply TremGlaze foam insulation around the inside gaps between the new window, old frame and interior wall/sill to help insulate your new window even more. We then install an interior flat vinyl finishing trim closing all of the gaps and silicone around all of the edges for a nice clean and finished look.
Lastly, we clean all of your windows and window frames on the outside and inside to complete the installation of your new vinyl retrofit windows. All of the old window debris and any trash is cleaned up, swept up and hauled away. Your home is left just like we found it but now more beautiful and upgraded with your new Atlas Windows.
