What does “Any Size, Installed” mean?

The term “Any Size” refers to any size replacement double hung window our manufacturer will construct. Currently, this is a minimum width and height of 15″ X 26″ and a maximum of 48″ X 78″. “Installed” refers to the removal of a basic double-hung wooden window and installing your new Window World Double-Hung replacement window, using the existing wooden stops.

Most often our replacement windows are installed from the inside. Depending on the situation, it may be necessary to install from the outside.

Window World of Fort Wayne installs your replacement windows within 4-8 weeks from the date that the final measurements are taken. The amount of time needed to install your replacement windows depends on the type of replacement window being installed and type being removed. On average, each window takes about 30 minutes. Expect additional time for trim work and cleanup. An average job will take a single day.

How can I prepare my house for my replacement windows?

It would be helpful for you to take down curtains, blinds or any other window treatments. In addition, have your security company remove and turn off your security sensors. Please move anything that may be in the way to clear a path to the window(s) being replaced for our installation experts. We also suggest you remove all wall decorations from the walls close to the windows to prevent them from falling during removal or installation.

What happens to my old windows?

After installing your new replacement windows we remove every bit of debris from your property and dispose of it properly. If you wish to keep your old windows, glass or storm windows, please notify the installer as soon as he arrives for your installation.
