How long will it take to get replacement windows for my home?
At BM Windows, all of the replacement windows we sell are made to order; in other words, they are custom-made for your specific San Diego home. That means they will fit perfectly in the space that your current windows occupy and look as if they have always been a part of your home. However, that also means that the process of getting new replacement windows takes some time. The overall timeline is based on several factors, including:
- The season in which you order
- The window manufacturer you choose
- Your availability for appointments
The process begins when when you call our office to schedule your initial appointment. We work with you to set up a time for your in-home appointment with one of our team members that fits within your schedule. In busier seasons, we may need to schedule your appointment a little ways out, especially if you have limited availability, but we will do our best to meet with you as soon as possible to get the process started.
We’ll take all of the measurements we need and give you a quote right at that in-home meeting. Other replacement window companies may make you wait for a quote, delaying the process for several days, but our experienced and knowledgeable representatives are authorized to give you a quote on the spot.
As soon as you decide that BM Windows is the replacement window company you’re going to go with and provide us with a deposit, we’ll order your windows right away. If you are using our financing company to help pay for your new windows, we can typically approve you on the spot, so you shouldn’t have to spend any time waiting for the funding to come through.
Your replacement windows will typically take 4-6 weeks to be completed by the manufacturer (though that can fluctuate depending on the specific manufacturer and whether the windows are ordered during their busy season or their slow season). Once we have a delivery date from our manufacturer, we’ll schedule your installation date for the soonest date that is convenient for you.
On the day of installation, our team will arrive on time and get right to work. They can typically install all of the replacement windows and doors in your San Diego home in one day. If it’s a particularly large or a more complicated job, it may take a little longer.
Other San Diego replacement window companies may quote their customers several days for installation on jobs our team could do in just one. The efficiency of our crews is due to the fact that they are professional window installers, not general laborers or subcontractors. They have been highly trained in window installation and are great at what they do! They know the best methods for installing replacement windows and patio doors and they put in full days of work to get the job done in a timely manner.
We know that people often have to take time off of work to be home for the installation of their windows and doors, so we don’t want to ask our customers to take off more time than they need to. In addition, we want the installation process to be minimally disruptive to your home life, and we want you to be able to enjoy your new windows and patio doors as soon as possible. Overall, we just want the process to be as smooth as we can make it for you and your family.
You can expect the entire process, from your initial inquiry to the completed installation, to take approximately two months. However, at your in-home consultation, a BM Windows representative can give you a more accurate estimate based on the season and how busy our manufacturers are at the time of your order. If anything changes with the timeline along the way, we will be sure to communicate with you.
Contact us at BM Windows today to get the process started. So many of our customers tell us that if they had known how great their home would look and feel with new windows, they would have contacted us much sooner! We look forward to hearing from you!
