So what can you expect when getting windows installed in your home? It’s a simple process that can happen at any time of the year and in any weather. Here’s what to expect. 

Prior to Installation 

At Pollard, we offer free in-home consultations for clients in Burlington, Toronto, and surrounding areas in the GTA. This means that our consultants will visit you in the comfort of your own home and speak with you about your hopes and dreams for your property. We’ll provide on-site measuring to make sure that we provide an accurate quotation, and we’ll provide professional advice to make sure the project is completed to your specifications.  Once you have reviewed our quotation for the proposed work and would like to proceed, we will require a deposit to secure your order for production and installation. At this point, we will book an appointment at your home for our professional installers to perform a final measure to make sure everything will fit perfectly. 

Every project is unique, and everyone has different needs. We can advise you about decorative windows, picturesque bay and bow windows , and a range of other options that will be perfect for your home.

During Installation 

In Canada, the weather can be extreme. But even if winters are cold, there’s no need to delay your window replacement project. Our team works in all seasons, and we ensure that your home remains usable and energy-efficient throughout the installation process. 

Here’s a step-by-step process: 

1) Having measured your space beforehand, the Pollard teams arrives with your new windows. 

2) We install your windows one room at a time. First, we carefully take out your old windows by removing the interior trim and exterior capping. We cut existing fasteners around the perimeter of the window to remove the old product. To ensure that the window opening are level, we then install the new windows into place with fasteners to make them safe and secure. We will insulate the perimeter from the interior side before applying your finishing trim. If needed, we will cap the exterior and caulk the new windows to make them watertight. Our team works quickly and carefully, and the opening is only exposed to the elements for a very short period.

3) You inspect our work and make sure that it is completed according to your expectations. You’ll only sign off on our work once you’re completely satisfied 

4) We pack up and leave you to enjoy — the only sign that we were ever there will be your beautiful new windows!
