“Will it be the tortoise or the hare?” John quips back.
Michelle snorts a laugh. “Nice one, babe. But really, how long does it take to install windows? Or, more specifically, how long does it take to replace windows?”
John shrugs. “I’ve never done it before so I don’t know. We can always look it up on Google! That’s what we did when we were looking up new and replacement window costs.”
“Great idea!” says Michelle brightly as she takes her phone out to start looking. “We can check out that local window contractor’s blog again and see if it has any info on this.”
Here’s what the couple finds out:
How Long It Takes To Get New Windows For Your House
It usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks for new windows to arrive, though it can be longer. Right now, due to COVID, it may take 10 to 14 weeks.
COVID is still slowing down transportation and production. This means most materials and products are on a much longer backorder than normal.

We can install or replace about 7 to 10 new windows per day. The timeline mainly depends on any damages, the weather, the number of windows, and if any of the window types are changing.
The Main Factors Changing How Long It Takes To Install Windows
Damage. If we find wood rot, water damage, or something else we’ll talk to you about the next steps immediately. It’s usually best to fix damages ASAP so it doesn’t get worse and cost more later.
Weather. We can’t very well work in the rain or snow. The moisture would get into your house and your windows and cause a mess and water damage.
The number of windows. The more work we need to do the longer it’ll take to do.
Window change. If you want to put in a window that’s larger or smaller than the one that was there, we need to resize the frame. This is a whole other process that’ll add time and cost.
