Homeowners can expect a professional and friendly consultation when you call Paul Ryan Windows. We’re not like other window companies who only care about a sale. Our process is easy and efficient, with no high-pressure sales tactics. We assess the customer’s needs based on a series of questions, offer suggestions for window type, measure window specs and offer the homeowner financing options. We also can answer any and all questions on window materials, the benefits of single vs double hung windows and much more.
The entire process takes anywhere from 30 - 45 minutes depending on the homeowner. Our experts are flexible and can come at whatever time is most convenient for the homeowner. There have been instances where homeowners prefer to have their quotes done in the evening, when their kids have gone to bed, and we are respectful of these preferences.
Once the contract has been signed, and windows selected, depending on the maufacturer the process can take as little as five to six weeks.
The process is simple and easy, with our installer reviewing the step-by-step details with the homeowner. The space is measured to ensure a custom fit, the installer reviews the color preference, specs are reviewed and submitted for order. Once the product is delivered and a quality check is performed at the warehouse, the installer will schedule a convenient time with the homeowner, and the installation process begins. Tarps are placed indoor and outdoor, and furniture is protected by plastic. We recommend homeowners remove pictures and knickknacks around the window and surrounding area. In some instances, when needed, we are happy to help move furniture as we recommend furniture is moved at least 2 ft. from the wall. Windows are then installed, which is normally a two-day process, and once the job is completed our installers clean all debris and haul it away at no extra charge.
Once the windows are delivered it is normally a two day process. Our installers can install about 20 windows day.
