Some JELD-WEN dealers, such as The Home Depot, offer total window replacement services, but some homeowners choose to replace windows themselves. This requires measuring and ordering replacement windows, removing window trim, taking out and disposing of old windows and then installing the new windows. New window installation involves placing the window in the opening, securing it, sealing with caulk or similar sealant, and installing trim for appearance and additional protection.

JELD-WEN offers instructions on how to best install replacement windows. Look up where the nearest JELD-WEN dealer is located by filling in the form at jeld-wen.com/findastore. Any dealer can offer recommendations for installation or direct you to a licensed contractor in your area.

Large orders or odd-sized windows may take longer to manufacture than those that have more common dimensions. It is important to plan window replacement well. Getting the right measurements is critical. Unless a professional measures the windows, you may not be able to return them very easily if a measurement is wrong.
