General Sequence of Events for Replacement of Doors & Windows:

1. Access is required to install the plastic and plywood framed “box” on the interior of the door/ window. This box effectively closes off the openings to your home, and enables work to be performed each day from the exterior. We understand it will be dark – be patient – try to focus on the end result!

2. The old doors will be removed. Two applications of Tufflex coating will be applied to the sills with flashing between and on top, before the new units are installed. Some homeowners have reported that they are sensitive to the Tufflex odor: if you think you may be, you may want to make arrangements to stay elsewhere for the night.

3. The wood coverings will be removed and plastic will be wrapped around the new units instead.

4. You will not be able to open or use the new units, or remove the plastic, however, until the final stucco waterproofing coat has been applied. We will keep you posted as to when they will come off–the duration is getting shorter & shorter with each cluster. This entire process could take several weeks, although you can expect the box enclosures to be up for two weeks or less.
