In a perfect world, you wouldn’t run into any unexpected surprises when having replacement windows in Pleasanton, CA installed in your home. But there are, of course, going to be at least a few surprises that might pop up along the way. Rather than allowing them to catch you off guard and throw your window replacement project completely off course, you should know what these surprises are and do your best to limit them. Check out 4 surprises you may face when installing replacement windows.
Windows that are out of stock when you need them
Most window companies try to keep the Pleasanton, CA windows that they sell in stock at all times. They want to be able to provide you with the windows that you want when you need them. But if you happen to choose one of the more popular window styles, there is a chance that they might be out of stock for a little while, which will force you to wait to have window replacement done. It’s why it’s a good idea to work with the right window company. It’s also why it’s a good idea to start shopping around for new windows at least a few weeks before you actually want to have them installed.
Windows that are damaged during the shipping process
Most modern-day windows are extremely durable and designed to last for a long time. As a result, they don’t have any problem holding up during the shipping process. But every now and then, a window may get damaged when it’s shipped to a window company, and they won’t always realize it until the window is opened up. This can throw your window replacement project off a bit since your window company will have to get a replacement window for the one that’s broken. It shouldn’t, however, throw your project off too much.
Windows that are difficult to install due to the weather
The weather can throw a monkey wrench into your window installation plans if it doesn’t cooperate. Window companies won’t be able to install new windows for you if the weather is rainy for an extended period of time. It’ll also be tough for them to install your new windows if the weather is unseasonably hot or cold when you schedule your window installation. The temperature needs to be at an ideal temperature for windows to go in the right way.
Windows that are hard to install for other reasons
More than just the weather can affect a window installer’s ability to put new windows into place in your home. If whoever installed the windows in your home the last time they were replaced did shoddy work, your installers may have to make repairs to the openings in your home before installing your new windows. These types of surprises can prevent you from installing new windows as quickly as you might like. But as long as you have the right window company by your side, they should still be able to perform repairs and install your windows quickly.
