Regular Window Installation

Regular window installation can be a quick and efficient process when done right. By following a set of meticulous steps, we can guarantee you to get that perfect fit window to your style and need.

  • Cleaning: Clean the surface area for the flashing tape. Make sure that it is free from any dirt or debris.
  • Install flashing tape: Flashing tape prevents water from entering the interior of the sill. Install the tape across both the entire length as well as the sides to create an entire water-resistant barrier.
  • Checking of windowsill: Make sure it’s level and doesn’t have any bowing. If it’s not level, use shims and attach it to the window opening with flashing tape and screws.
  • Testing of the window: For a good fit, the frame needs to have a little space around it once the window is installed. Examine how the new window fits into the space before fixing the window with tape or sealant. If the window is appropriate in size, you can put the window aside to make the room ready to install it.
  • Installing the window: Apply beads of caulk around the sill, the top of the frame, and the stops. After you have prepared the opening then, place the window against the stops, and then attach it with caulk. Make holes in the frame, and attach shims to hold the window to the frame.
  • Check the work: Make sure the window is checked with a level to ensure it is in line with the opening and that the sashes are in line with the frame. If required, add more shims along the rails that meet to secure the frame. When you are happy with the outcome, cut the shims.
  • Securing the window: Install the window in the hole with nails or screws. Put extra flashing on the outside in the area around and inside the window. Also, you can use foam sealants in the gaps to stop air leaks. Apply caulk with latex on the trim on the inside to finish the installation.

At the end of the day, it is still better to call for a professional window installer. Factory Direct is a trusted leading window and door installer in New Jersey. With over 30 years of professional experience, we are confident to help you with all your window needs.

Bay/Bow & Large Window

Bay Bow Windows New Jersey

If you’re planning to create an area for viewing that lets a lot of sunlight into your home, bay or bow windows might be the answer for you.

Bay and bow windows are a beautiful and functional addition to any home. While some manufacturers offer standard configurations, most often a custom solution is required.

Whether you’re looking to renovate an existing window or add a new one from scratch, there are many factors to consider. That’s where Factory Direct comes in. We have no problem removing your old windows and replacing them with new ones.

In most cases, bay and bow windows are installed during the initial construction of a home. This will ensure that the required double joists and cantilevering give enough support and that the rafters are connected to the frame part of the home.

But, when replacing a flush window with a bay or bow window, special supports need to be incorporated. This may include hidden cables within the window component, knee braces, or brackets.

Proper installation is crucial to prevent heat loss in winter, air leakage in summer, water damage, and mold problems. Factory Direct ensures that your bay and bow windows will provide a lifetime of beauty and functionality.

Wall Cutouts for New Windows

We are aware of the complexity involved when it comes to constructing wall cutouts for new windows. Before doing any projects, we do a thorough assessment and cooperate with you to design the best plan to meet the specific requirements of your home. Here are the steps in wall cutouts for new windows:

  • Take a measurement: When doing any home renovations, it’s important to get the right measurements. It’s even more important when you’re cutting a hole in your wall. Take measurements at least two times.
  • Make the opening: Next comes the time when you must be cautious as you’ll be cutting an enormous hole into your home. It is likely that you will have to make the opening bigger than the opening you’ve created to accommodate the frame supporting it as well as the header. It can take a full day to make the opening and take out the frame and drywall within the window.
  • Frame the window: Make sure the window is solid and won’t sag in time by using correct framing strategies. Install lower wall studs beneath the window opening, to help ensure the windowsill is supported, and let the water drain out by placing the windowsill with a 1-inch slope.
  • Close the wall: When the framing is set it is possible to complete opening the wall. Make pilot holes through the interior in each order to determine the window openings from the outside of your house. A drill bit that is 12 inches long is enough to complete the work. Draw an outline using straightedges for connecting the holes. This will be the space for you to make cuts.
  • Set up the windows: You can now set up the window. Make use of a nailing fin, or an integral flange to attach your brand-new metal or vinyl windows to your home. This protects your home from the infiltration of moisture.

You can trust us that will be transparent to you in every step of the way. From planning to installing and after sales of your new cutout window, Factory Direct will be with you.

Installing a new front entrance door is a great way to give your home a fresh, updated look while improving security and energy efficiency. But, the process of installing a new door can seem overwhelming, especially if you’ve never done it before. Here are some simple steps to follow when installing a new front entrance door:

  • Measure the door opening: Before you buy a new door, you need to measure the door opening to ensure that you get the right size. Measure the height, width, and depth of the opening to determine the correct size for your new door.
  • Choose the right door: Once you have the measurements, choose a door that fits the opening and meets your needs. Consider factors such as material, style, and energy efficiency.
  • Remove the old door: To remove the old door, you’ll need to remove the hinges and take out the frame. If you’re gonna do it alone, be sure to have a helper to assist you, as doors can be heavy and awkward to move.
  • Install the new door frame: Once the old door is removed, you’ll need to install the new door frame. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure that the frame is level and properly secured.
  • Install the new door: After the frame is installed, it’s time to install the new door. Carefully place the door into the frame and make sure it’s level and plumb. Use shims to adjust the fit as needed.
  • Install the hardware: Once the door is in place, install the hardware such as the hinges, doorknob, and lockset. Again, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure that everything is properly installed.
  • Insulate and seal: Finally, you’ll want to insulate and seal around the door to prevent drafts and improve energy efficiency. Use weatherstripping and caulking to seal any gaps between the door and the frame.

By following these simple steps, you can install a new front entrance door and enjoy improved security, energy efficiency, and curb appeal for your home. If you’re not comfortable with the process, it’s always best to hire a professional installer to ensure a proper and safe installation.

New Patio Door Installation

Sliding Patio Door New Jersey

Patio doors are an extensively popular choice right now for homeowners who want a stylish and practical solution to have access to their backyard.

When installed right, patio doors can block leaks and drafts, which so, conserves the environment and costs. For a secure installation that is functional and needs minimal maintenance and results in large energy savings, follow these steps from Factory Direct.

Check existing conditions: The two important factors for a patio door opening are a level sill and an upright header that is strong enough to support the roof load over it. Doors should be free of decay and rot. They should also be level so that the door is a good fit in the space.

Common issues with installation result from poor header material, infiltration of water, and a sloppy transition from the entrance to the finished flooring.

Checking current conditions to ensure stability and determining the type of patio installation suited for the existing space are vital steps to a well-executed replacement or installation process.

Measure points: After checking the existing conditions, it’s time to measure. The sliding patio doors must be purchased using a certain frame depth that is based on the wall’s depth at present and the door’s shape will not change due to the wall’s size.

Measurements start by getting the width and the height at three points along the vertical and horizontal planes, then note the smallest of the three to ensure that the product will fit into the opening.

Finding the right measurements for an outdoor patio door could need tearing off a part of the interior casing to reveal the door’s rough opening. To locate the opening without cutting off the inside casing, take out the hinges with screws and insert a stiff wire. Then, note the area of the resistance that the wire will hit.

Flashing: After determining the rough opening, together with proper header materials and a solid sill plate placed, then you can now start the installation. An effective installation begins by applying the flash to the sill. Flashing is the initial step in preventing the infiltration of water, mold, or any other damaging damage that could be avoided.

If you are installing an outdoor door onto concrete or on the subfloor, a liquid-based flashing is recommended. It can be applied using the same paintbrush as you apply paint to a canvas or on walls. In both cases, flashing must be applied at least six inches from the bottom of the sill on both sides of the opening.

Shimming: Shimming the door is the following stage in the installation process to ensure it is put in place and plumb. Doors come with pre-drilled screw holes to assist installers to determine where to put shims to ensure that the door is straight and level. It’s essential to shim behind every screw. Shims must always be set at a distance of three-eighths of an inch to allow room for sealant backer rods as well as backer rods.

Flat shims should be used over wedge shims to make sure that the frame sits at a level with the opening. Shimming too much or too little could affect the position of the doors.

Installing: After shimming has been completed then it’s time for you to fix the door to the opening with appropriate fasteners that will help the door stand up to pressures from both the interior and exterior. Before you apply the first fasteners to the frame, you must center the opening to the outside, then press downwards to sit the door beneath the beeta sealant, after that, clamp the door into the desired position.

The instructions for installation provided by the door manufacturer could include gusset plates or sill plates to be inserted into the rough opening and then connected to the patio door. The plates must be put in place under the directions otherwise the unit won’t meet the advertised and printed specifications.

When fixing it on the side of the doorway, make sure to not insert screws into the installation flanges as an alternative for fixing the unit to the opening. A patio door should be fixed to the opening rough by screwing into all holes that are pre-drilled in the jams in the head.

This is the method that secures the patio door to the opening. Failing to follow the procedure could cause the door to fall into the gap. Any mistakes or shortcuts made during the installation process could cause the failure of the unit. It could also cause property damage in certain conditions.

Finishing: After the door is put in place, the final step is to check its operation. Remove the lock and inspect it to make sure that your sliding door can move between the two sides without obstructions. It should be able to glide back and forth using the force of two fingers.

After checking everything and making sure that the door is functioning, then the installation is complete.
