How Long Does It Take To Install A Window?

On average, it takes approximately 30-45 minutes to install one window. However, from start to finish—we can complete an entire home installation in approximately one day.

Installing new windows in Houston can be a stressful ordeal if you don’t hire the right company. If you hire an inexperienced or shady window company in Houston your problems can be costly ones. As Adrianna highlighted, an experienced window installer putting in your typical replacement window shouldn’t take more than 45 minutes.

That includes removing your old window, the old sealant, and any debris and then installing the new window along with a new seal. It’s a quick and simple installation for the most commonly installed types such as casement windows or double-hung.

Of course, larger window types such as bay windows or custom-shaped windows and sizes will require more time. Now, if you had just one installer doing let’s say 16 windows in your house, that means it would take at least two days to complete. However, since The Windows Source of Houston utilizes a full team to do a household install, we are typically done in one day.

Fast & Effective Installation of Windows In Houston

Just because we’re done in a single day doesn’t mean you’re getting substandard installs, quite the opposite. We utilize a large team to install windows in Houston homes to ensure each window gets exceptional installation.

Our focus when performing an install is always on getting the small details right every time. Our installs are “white glove” which means we enter and exit your property without leaving a trace of our presence. Our team diligently cleans their work area, wears booties over our shoes when entering your home, and your windows look crystal clear.

So, what goes into installing new windows in Houston? Why does it take up to 45 mins for each window? Well, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes and it’s exactly why we work with a full install team. Some of the work is done during the initial visit when we evaluate your home to give you a quote. However, the rest of the work takes place once we have the windows at your home and ready to install.

There’s a lot of measuring, double and triple-checking to ensure the custom windows are indeed the right dimensions. Additionally, we have to clear a work path and remove the old window and seal before we can install the new one. After installing new windows in Houston, they must be sealed and trim must be replaced.

If this was left up to a single installer, it could take two days or longer to accomplish all of this. That is why we take a team approach and make as little impact on your day as possible.
