Window Installation Chicago
Properly installed windows (with the right product) will guarantee you only need to do it once.
Defectively installed windows can cause degradation and eventually permanent damage to your home. The installation process is equally important to the type of windows that you choose. Going with the right window company should in fact guarantee the proper installation. So you should look for a company with proven skills, most likely a local window installer with a well-established business and reputation.
To insure the overall success and safety of your window installation project, our installers go through a rigorous screening process including personal background checks and onsite inspections, to guarantee nothing but the highest quality installation of your new replacement windows.
All window installation projects will be assigned a project manager, who will oversee all of the major and minor details, so that you can stay focused on what is important to you.
At Supreme Windows you have the option available to customize your product as well as your installation. We can accommodate your needs as well as your budget.
What type of window installation is good for you?
Here are your options:
- Standard pocket installation or insert installation
- Standard installation adding stops
- New construction installation or flange removal installation
- Buck frame installation or Full frame removal installation
Standard pocket installation or insert installation
Pocket or insert installation is the most direct and easy way to install windows. 75% of installation can be done from the exterior, which minimizes dust and debris. One of the benefits of a pocket installation is you are able to keep your interior aesthetics because you do not have to replace the trim.
Standard installation adding stops
This type of installation is necessary more often when you are changing the style of the window i.e. removing a casement and installing a double hung window.
New construction installation or flange removal installation
This installation is necessary if you live in a new construction home. Homes built from 1990 to current will require a new construction installation. The benefit of this type of installation is the existing nailing flange will no longer be connected to the window, which allows the house to settle down, thereby altering the functionality of the window.
Buck frame installation or master frame installation
This installation is necessary mostly in older homes experiencing water and sun damage that has rotted the master frame. Termites also can be the cause of this. Full frame installation requires the removal of the entire existing window including the casings, frame, and existing trim. One of the benefits is that we can maximize the amount of glass (which is usually lost with the replacement windows by doing what is called a stud-to-stud installation) and will allow you to better insulate around the window.
