Project Green installations are completed by highly trained and individuals that take every precaution to guarantee complete client satisfaction. The windows are coated in place. The installation is neat, clean, and odor free, with minimal disruption to household or business activities.
Our installers must meet our standards for quality rather than typical industry standards. Once a client decides to move ahead with an installation, they are given a date and time for the installation. Generally, the lead-time is one to two weeks, however, during the peak season that time can be longer.
There is no need for advance preparation by the homeowner. The installers move furniture and accessories that may be in the way. We handle all furnishings carefully and are fully insured if the unthinkable should occur. It is a good idea for the homeowner to move any delicate or extremely valuable items away from the window areas. Drop cloths are used to protect all flooring materials and to cover any furniture that cannot be moved, such as a grand piano. We place all items back in their original position.
Extreme care is used in preparing the edges of the glass before installing the film. When the existing finish is in good condition, there will be no damage to those surfaces. In some situations, the normal preparation for the film will remove the finish if it is not in sound condition. An example of this would be window frames that had been varnished years ago, but due to the damage from the sun, the wood is unprotected. The water used during the film process may raise the grain of the wood. If this is the case, the windows should be refinished prior to the installation of the film. Windows with rubber gaskets around the glass that are typically brown and then painted to match the trim generally have a poor paint bond which may result in some flaking. In any of these situations where normal preparation results in subsequent touch-up, Project Green is not responsible for that work. These conditions should be addressed at the consultation or at the beginning of the installation if not previously discussed.
The installation for most homes can be completed in one day. In a home with true divided colonial panes of glass, the installation is considerably longer. The homeowner does not have to be present during the entire process. It is very common for our installers to be left unattended in a home. This is left to the discretion of the homeowner.
Occasionally installations are scheduled for weekends. Typically, the smaller less complicated projects are done at his time. Also, the lead-time for weekend installations can be three to six weeks. Any particular conditions that may be involved in an installation will be covered during the consultation.
