Millwork Installation – What To Expect The Day We Install Your New Windows and Doors

If you have ordered new windows and doors (often called millwork) with Newman Windows and Doors, then the day is soon coming that we will be coming to install them for you. Because we have years of experience and have installed thousands of windows and doors, we have gotten the installation process nailed down. Installation day typically goes smoothly and quickly. Here is what you can expect and how you can prepare. 

What to Expect When You Install Windows and Doors

Newman Windows and Doors | What to expect during your installation


Prior to your appointment, please rest assured that we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of you and your home. In light of recent events, we have implemented stricter health and safety procedures. Your safety and the safety of our team is of the utmost importance to us at this time. Our teams practice frequent hand-washing and liberal use of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, we absolutely practice social distancing when in your home and going about our daily work, and we are taking extra measures to ensure that our trucks, offices, and uniforms are as clean as possible daily.

You can help the installation go more smoothly and quickly by following this checklist to prepare for your window or door installation. Our goal is to work swiftly and efficiently, leaving your home more beautiful than when we arrive. 


  • Remove window treatments (blinds, curtains, etc)
  • Move furniture away from the work area
  • Disarm and remove any window security alarms


  • Trim shrubs or trees so they can access the work area
  • Remove window boxes
  • Remove planters and make a walkway through flower beds


On the day of installation, you can expect two uniformed installers to arrive at the previously scheduled time and to be ready to get right to work. If there are issues and we are unable to be there on time, our team will call you ahead of time to work out a new plan. 

When our certified installers arrive, they will layout the window job so you are aware of exactly what to expect. They will also inspect the area and let you know if there is anything they need from you before getting started. 

Finally, before starting the installation process, our team will ensure that they have everything they need to complete the installation in a timely manner. They double-check the window size and style to minimize the possibility of any surprises or snags. 


Before begging the installation process, our installation experts will lay down drop cloths at the installation site. They will also gather all of the necessary tools and equipment, again, ensuring that they will be able to complete the installation before starting. 

Once they remove your current window or door, the installers will do a thorough examination of the opening, looking for signs of rot or mildew. If anything is found, they will be sure to alert you before proceeding. 

The final installation process will leave your home looking finished. The goal is to make it look as though the windows or doors, although brand new, blend with your home beautifully. 


Our installation experts bring dropcloths and vacuums so that when the installation process is complete, they can leave your home looking as lovely as it did when they arrived with the addition of beautiful new millwork. 

Because we specialize in windows and doors, we are able to complete jobs quickly and with accuracy, giving us a clear advantage over our competitors. 

For a free in-home discovery session, please give us a call. We would be delighted to go over all available options with you. 

We know there are many options when it comes to choosing where to purchase your windows and doors. At Newman, we take service one step further by offering what we call our Newman Signature Experience. Learn more about that here >>
