· Removal of old and installation of new windows and doors
The crew will then take off the old doors and windows, taking care to keep the opening and the surrounding area in good condition. Once the old windows and doors have been removed, the installers will clean the opening and install the new ones.

The length of time it takes to install new windows and doors varies substantially depending on the weather and the condition of the old doors and windows. The majority of tasks, however, take one to two days to complete. With your windows and demands in mind, your contractor can give you a more precise time frame.
