The following steps are taken when Sunset Home Improvements installs new replacement windows in your home.

1. On-Site Engineering

Our installation manager visits the home, by appointment, to make concise measurements of the windows to be replaced. This data is fed to state-of-the-art computers in the factory to custom build your windows and doors.
Important: On final measure, the installation manager reviews all aspects of products that were originally requested. If there are any changes of customer or customer requests, they are made now and signed off and at that time the order will be immediately submitted for production.

2. Manufacturing

Windows are then assembled with the highest standards in the industry to provide unequaled quality and durability.

3. Scheduling

Our installation manager sets up an installation date convenient to you and an installation team is assigned to the job.

4. First Steps in the Home

Our installation team arrives by appointment. Drop cloths are used so that your carpet or floor surfaces are not ruined.
5. Homeowner's Responsibilities
You should remove draperies, mini-blinds or any window treatment prior to the arrival of technicians.

6. Removal of Old Windows

Care is taken to remove existing windows so we do not damage existing stucco or interior wall. Old windows are not removed unless new windows can be installed at the same time. This ensures that your home will always remain secure.

6a. Removal of All Stops

Your window sash is held in place by exterior and interior wooden stop strips that must be removed first.

6b. Removal of Sash & Hardware

Next the sash with the glass panes are removed along with any hardware they came with or that remain on the window frame.

6c. Clean-up of Sub-Frame

Finally, the Sub-Frame is cleaned up, removing any obstructions and old hardware that might still be attached to it. The old windows and materials are then removed from the property.

7. Installation of New Window

Your new custom fit windows and doors are professional installed by our factory-trained technicians. Installation of the trim is the final step. Great care is taken to provide a neat, clean, and finished appearance.

8. Insulation and Trim Wrap

Once fastened to the sub-frame, insulation is applied to the space between the sub-frame surface and new window casing to ensure complete weatherproofing of the window.
Optional: The exterior trim can be covered with a vinyl wrap to match the new vinyl window. By adding this feature, the entire exterior of window will be completely maintenance free.

9. Window Cleanup

All stickers are removed from windows and then cleaned. All old windows and doors are removed from the job site along with excess debris.

10. Inspection & Check-Off

The job site foreman will review installation with the homeowner. Upon your complete satisfaction, you will be asked to sign a completion certificate and check off sheet.
