OUR PROCESS

A DIFFERENT WAY OF REPLACING WINDOWS

Great Plains has been focusing on providing the best possible window and door solutions for mid to high-end homes and remodeling projects throughout the Twin Cities metro area for more than 25 years.  We will provide you with a free in-home assessment of your windows and doors, address your current questions and concerns, identify any unique installation challenges, and provide you with a detailed solution including price for your overall window and door project. We pride ourselves on complete customer satisfaction throughout the entire replacement process.

Replacing your old windows and doors can be an intimidating project for many homeowners.  Leave it to us to deliver you the peace of mind you deserve today. We have an original installation process and we’re backed by the longevity of the Andersen brand.

There are many ways to work with homeowners on replacement projects. We’ve created a simple process so you know what to expect at each step in the replacement process. The focus throughout is on you and your home. We respect your space and treat everyone in the process how we would expect to be treated in the same situation.

INITIAL MEETING

Once you decide it’s time to start looking at replacement window and door options, you simply call or submit a form to us to schedule an appointment at a convenient time for you. Please set aside 1-2 hours for the initial appointment and consider the size of your project and questions you might have for us when we visit. We will meet with you in your home to customize a window/door replacement plan specific to your wants and needs.  We will provide you options including style, color, hardware, and performance that best compliments the look and feel of your home.

Throughout the in-home window/door consultation, we will help guide you through product options and overall pricing that best fits not only your aesthetic desires but also your project budget.

OPTIONS

Depending on the size or difficulty of your project, there could be many factors that will contribute to your final decision. We will present the options that best fit your needs based on an overall evaluation of your home, your desires and our solutions. Every home is different and we will take the time to identify any unique installation challenges.

In addition to the on-site discovery session, we also have a showroom with the complete line of Andersen Windows. You can see and touch the product that you are considering. You’ll also be able to see the differences between the different product options for you home.

MEASURE AND ORDER

Once you choose Great Plains Windows and Doors for your project, our operations team will begin the process of ordering your custom-fit windows. We will set up a time to visit your home to take specific measurements and note any installation details specific to the site conditions.

After these final details are captured, your materials will be ordered. Once the windows or doors arrive in our facility, you will be contacted by our Project Coordinator. Windows and doors usually take 4-8 weeks to arrive after ordering. From scheduling your installation date to following up to make sure you are completely satisfied, your Project Coordinator will be with you every step thru completion.

INSTALLATION

Your installation team, led by a Certified Expert Installer, will replace your product with little to no disruption to your home. We’ll make sure they are up to speed on any subtleties for your project. They will provide exceptional workmanship and project efficiency so your installation is completed both swiftly and successfully. We pride ourselves on cleaning up so well that you won’t even know we were there!
