Window installation/replacement step-by-step guide
- Preparatory work. Window unit and the space next to it should be absolutely clean: take off the curtains, clean the sill and move furniture on 1.5-2m far from work place. Protect the premise from extra dust and dirt by covering furniture with additional materials. Prepare garbage bags.
- Old frame dismantle works. Remove sashes, plat bands and, if necessary, dismantle slopes. Dismantle an old frame. However, if you need to save it further, please, warn technicians in advance, since it will most likely be damaged during removal works. Remove an indoor sill. Clean the window space thoroughly, there must be no debris left. Use cement screed to fill in all the empties to make the surface even.
- New window installation. A new frame is to be installed into clean prepared space and fixed with the help of anchor bolts or mounting plates. The most important on this stage is to control the frame to be placed strictly horizontally and vertically to ensure its correct function. Normally, window sill replacement (outdoor and indoor) is done at this stage as well. If you would like to save your sill we will restore it for you. The new sill is being fixed with the help of mounting foam. We also use it to fill all the empties between the frame and its space to protect the room from heat waste. The foam is to be protected additionally not to permit the moisture and sunshine to ruin it. Outside foam should be covered as soon as possible, since it is affected at first hand. Once the frame is safely fixed, it is time to work with slopes, which have decorative and functional needs – serve as additional heat insulation and sound isolation.
- Window accessories installation. This is so-called “final stage” when glazed window is installed into its frame and sashes are hung. Mosquito protection as well as blinds can be hanged up at this time as well.
