We hear a lot of the same questions every day because we talk to a lot of homeowners every day. (That tends to happen when you’re one of the largest window and door companies in the area.)
To help save you some time, we’ve published a list below of some of the questions we hear most frequently about installing new windows and doors. Feel free to read through these, or just contact us online or call us at 800-443-7126. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
Can I install new windows myself?
Unless you are experienced in the field, we really wouldn’t recommend it. Windows must be installed square and level, not always an easy feat. In addition, a proper water barrier must be installed or considerable damage, not just to windows but to the home, could be the unfortunate result. In addition, improper installation would null and void your Reece Builders lifetime warranty. Besides, no need to consider manual labor. Our skilled team is at the ready to see you through installation from start to finish.
How are your windows installed?
Our highly trained installers will arrive on site ready to roll; you can be certain of a job well done upon completion. Installation methods will have been discussed beforehand, of course, but for optimal performance, we like to recommend a full-frame replacement. In other words, the entire area in which the window is inserted would be replaced. An insert replacement option is also available, but would depend on the amount of damaged area there is around the old window.
How long will it take to finish the job?
We know you are busy and our goal going in is to quickly and efficiently complete your window installation in as little time as possible. Understandably, there are determining factors as to how long the job will take. Such as the type of installation and style of windows chosen along with the number of windows you are replacing. We will be glad to help you plan in advance and can estimate the time needed for your new window replacements to be installed.
How much will my new window replacements cost?
We have many options to choose from. And, again, the number, style, and size of windows you are replacing will have bearing on the final cost. All our products are made with quality materials and backed by our Reece Builders lifetime guarantee. And, we’d like to take a moment to mention the money saved in lower utility costs.

Will someone from my household have to be present during the installation?
Yes. An adult will need to be at home for the installation to answer any questions your installers may have pertaining to installation. Also, our installers will need to have inside access to your home to assure that everything is installed to our high-quality standards. No worries about a mess though. Our team leaves your home as clean as they found it.
How will the area surrounding my new window be affected?
Our installation teams will do their best to install your new replacement windows with the greatest of care. We respect the fact that you have entrusted us to make improvements to your home and our goal is to leave you certain that we have done just that. In the event that there is damage to the surrounding wall or surface area, we will fix it. No charge.
Are the windows installed from the inside or outside?
To ensure proper anchoring, weatherproofing and installation in general, both inside and outside access to your home will be needed.
What kind of preparations do I need to make for installation day?
Please remove any window treatments and security sensors from the window. Also, please, move any furniture to make a clear path to the work area. It’s also a good idea to take down any wall decorations near the work area as vibrations due to removal and installation could cause them to fall.
Will the window installation process create a mess in my home?
No. Our installation crews are practiced in the art of their trade. No mess, no fuss. They will leave your home as they found it.
Who gets rid of the old windows?
We do. As is typical with any contract for home improvement, it is usually the contractor’s responsibility to dispose of debris and provide for cleanup.
