There often isn't a set time frame for how long installation takes as this depends entirely on the type of property and windows, how many windows are being installed and the complexity of the job. Replacing windows is a complex job and should only ever be done by a trained and skilled professional.

Installation Overview

Choose a specialist who has lots of specific experience. FENSA and CERTASS are schemes that cover the windows and doors, so it’s a good idea to use a tradesman who is registered with one of these. At the end of the job, a FENSA certificate shows that your windows and doors comply with building regulations, use energy efficient products and are registered with the local council. This certificate will also verify that the warranty is insured and is important when selling your home.

The first step is obviously to remove your old windows and doors then the new ones can be installed, there is also trim work and cleanup time afterwards to consider. An average Installation is usually complete in a day, but this obviously varies depending on the number of windows and doors you’re replacing.
