The windows in the house have been replaced at least once before, with vinyl double-paned windows. Over time all of them had lost the seal between the panes and condensation had formed on the inside of the two layers of glass obscuring the view. On some the operating mechanisms had failed making them difficult to open and close. It was time to begin the project to replace the windows. The initial order was for the seven windows in the two upstairs bedrooms, Kyle’s Corner and The Virage de Mulsanne, and the one staircase window, from Keith Window Company in Knoxville. Install was estimated for late October at that time.
In late September I discovered one of the first floor window thresholds had water damage. The only way to ensure all of the bad wood had been removed was to pull the window, so I added one more window to the order.
The install was set for December 1st. To prepare the window blinds and shutters would be removed, and space cleared in front of each window to allow for room to work. The beds and furniture were covered to protect from dust and debris.
Only one additional area of water damage was found during the replacement, and it was the window directly above the one I had discovered.
I could not have been more pleased with the installation. The crew were professional and thorough, and cleaned up after they were finished. The rooms are noticeably quieter than before, and I expect heating and cooling costs should improve.We will definitely go with Keith Windows for the remainder of the ongoing window replacement project.
