It’s worth knowing that once you agree to a price and a company to do the work their surveyor will come round to measure up for the job. This shouldn’t take too long and once it is done the work can go ahead. Be sure you check the information you are given – the last thing you want is for the company to turn up with windows you didn’t order. Check all the openings and finishes are the ones you want before you agree to go ahead.
The actual installation process is quite straightforward. You will usually find it is done in a day or two, depending on how many windows you have to replace. It may also take slightly longer if you are getting new doors as well. Find out how much notice you will get in advance of them turning up, so you know what to expect and when the job will be done.
In all honesty you may find you end up with your brand new windows a lot sooner than you thought. That’s the beauty of ordering new double glazing.
