One of the most commonly asked questions many people have regarding window replacement is, how long is this going to take? This is a great question and one that is relatively easy to answer. To have a better idea of how long it will take, we’ll first need to know what type of work is being performed, as different needs will come with different timelines. 

Scope of Work 

The first thing that will play a major role in determining how long the process will take is what exactly is being done. Are you getting a broken insulated unit replaced, or perhaps you need to replace the entire window? If you are simply needing a new unit installed, the process can happen rather quickly, oftentimes in a matter of weeks, whereas a new window will take longer, typically a month or more. 


Each residential glass company will have different policies and processes in place that dictate how they go about performing repairs. For Gordon’s Glass, that process is as follows:

  • For window replacements or repairs where Gordon’s Glass will be installing the new unit or window, they will first come out to your home to get measurements. 
  • Based on the measurements, they will then provide you with an estimate that will include materials, labor, and taxes for them to perform the work. 
  • After receiving and accepting the estimate, a 50% deposit is required in order for the necessary materials to be ordered. They will be ordered the same day the deposit is received. At the time the deposit is made, you will be made aware of the current lead time on the specific material that is being ordered to complete your job. 
  • As soon as the necessary materials have been received, Gordon’s Glass will then be in contact with you to schedule a day and time to come and install the new unit or window.


Depending on the scope of work that is to be performed, will have an effect on the timeline of how long it will take. Units are quicker to get ordered in, whereas, windows will take longer. As of the writing of this article, the lead time for units is 2-3 quicks, and for new windows, the current lead time is approximately 6-8 weeks, depending on the brand. For the most current, up-to-date lead times, contact Gordon’s Glass.
