FAQs

Q: DO I REALLY NEED TRIPLE PANE GLASS?

A: Not usually. Triple pane windows are designed for areas with prolonged extreme heat or cold.  In Southern California, double pane windows should suffice.

 

Q: CAN NEW CONSTRUCTION WINDOWS BE INSTALLED IN MY OLDER HOME?

A: Yes, it’s possible; however, they are usually not recommended on some applications.

 

Q: DO MY MEASUREMENTS HAVE TO BE ACCURATE?

A: No, not for the initial estimate.  Your windows will be re-measured by your installer before your window order is placed with the manufacturer.

 

Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BETWEEN THE TIME MY WINDOW ORDER IS PLACED AND THE WINDOWS ARE INSTALLED?

A: Typically, the manufacturing process takes between 1 to 2 weeks from the time you order them. When your custom windows are ready, we will coordinate an installation date that works with your schedule.

 

Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE WINDOWS TO BE INSTALLED?

A: A typical project of up to fifteen windows and one patio door can usually be installed in one or two days.

 

Q: WILL I LOSE SOME OF THE SPACE AROUND MY WINDOW SILL?

A: Yes. Most windows today have frames which are narrower than newly-made replacement windows because builders often use new construction (low grade) windows on newer homes. Replacement windows, on the other hand, are usually one (1) to one and a half (1.5) inches thicker than new construction windows.

 

Q: IF NECESSARY, WILL YOU REPLACE WINDOW SILLS AND WRAP WINDOW FACE BOARDS?

A: Yes. Your installer will point out any additional carpentry work needed. The wrapping of window face boards or the replacement of wood sills costs 45.00 to 65.00 per opening.
