The Internet is simply overflowing with information on how to insert windows and what tools are needed during installation, so collect all the necessary tools (punch, mounting level, drill, nail gun, polyurethane foam, fasteners). Decide on the date when you will insert windows, and carry out preparatory work in advance.
Preparatory work is to: remove the windows from the hinges; if there are blind parts, then remove the glass and make holes around the entire perimeter of the frame for fixing windows with anchors.
Have fun destroying old windows! Then clean the window opening from dirt. And now, finally, everything is ready for editing.
Ta-da-dam! … Drum roll! It’s time to insert the window. You need to insert it into the opening at the level (be sure to put the windows on the support profile, it must be included in the package), secure the entire structure with wooden spacers. When you fix the window, then using a punch, through the holes made earlier – hack into the wall, insert the anchor and stretch them.
Then moisten the entire window opening with water and blow out the frame with polyurethane foam. After 20 minutes after that, when the foam dries, install the ebb on the screws, pour a little foam under the windowsill. Then install it, and install a certain load on it in order to avoid its uneven fastening.
Now install double-glazed windows, hang the sashes. Close the window and let the foam dry completely. Do not touch during the day so that the window is firmly fixed.
The windows are ready! And wipe your nose to everyone who said that this is the business of professional installers.
