Once you have prepared a rough opening, installing a pre-hung window is relatively easy. The exact methods depend on the type of window you are putting in and vary from one manufacturer to the next. The directions offered here are intended as helpful guidelines, but be sure to follow the specific instructions that come with your new window.
Pre-hung windows are blocked and braced to prevent damage during shipping; in most cases, you should not remove the bracing until the window is fastened in place. After you have installed the unit, be sure the sash operates freely (for an operable window) before you install the interior trim or caulk the exterior.
Installing a Pre-Hung Window
A pre-hung window comes complete with a sash, a frame, a sill, hardware, and most of the trim. When ordering a window, you will need to know the exact depth of the wall it will fit into so that the jambs will be the proper size to fit flush with the wall.
It is best to install the window from the outside, although you can maneuver an operable window through the opening from the inside, open it, and lean through to fasten it. If you want to install the window from the inside, make sure you are safely anchored so you don't fall out.
Cutting the Exterior Opening
After laying out where you want to put the new window from inside the room, drill holes at the corners, and then drive nails through the holes so they are visible from the outside. With a carpenter's level, mark lines on the outside connecting the corners.
From the outside, using a circular saw, jigsaw, or reciprocating saw, cut through the siding and the sheathing along the lines; lay the cut material aside. For stucco, use a circular saw fitted with a masonry-cutting blade. Always wear eye protection. Inside, remove drywall.
If necessary, assemble the mounting flanges and flashing of your window; make sure to follow the window manufacturer's instructions carefully.
After holding up the window and marking its placement on the siding, take the window down and widen the cuts through the siding, but not the sheathing, to allow for the brickmold or flange that runs around the outside perimeter of the frame.
Mounting the Window
To prepare the opening, apply 8-inch-wide strips of moisture seal around the perimeter of the window opening, sliding it behind the siding. Make diagonal slits at the corners, using a utility knife; fold the moisture seal back over the rough framing and then staple it. The strips should stop just before the inside edge of the opening.
Place pairs of shims at the base of the rough opening, and adjust them until they are level. Drill pilot holes (to prevent the shims from splitting), nail them with two 6d (2-inch) nails per pair, and then cut them flush with the exterior wall. Make sure the pairs of shims are not so thick that they will prevent the window from fitting into the opening. Inside, trim the shims flush with the jambs. For nailing the flange or brickmold to the sheathing, use 4d (11/2-inch) roofing nails (for a flange) or 8d (2 1/2-inch) galvanized casing nails (for brickmold).

The Windows Installer (previously known as Microsoft Installer, codename Darwin[1]) is an engine for the installation, maintenance, and removal of software on modern Microsoft Windows systems. The installation information, and often the files themselves, are packaged in installation packages, loosely relational databases structured as OLE Structured Storage Files and commonly known as "MSI files", from their default file extension (compare:.deb, RPM,.pbi). Windows Installer is a significant improvement over its predecessor, Setup API: several new features, such as a GUI framework, the automatic generation of the uninstallation sequence and the powerful deployment capabilities, made Windows Installer a viable alternative to stand-alone executable installer frameworks such as older versions of InstallShield and WISE (later versions are based on Windows Installer) and NSIS.

Microsoft encourages third parties to use Windows Installer as the basis for installation frameworks, so that they synchronize correctly with other installers and keep the internal database of installed products consistent. Important features such as rollback and versioning (see DLL hell) depend on a consistent internal database for reliable operation.

I lost my old job with a glass company and had no luck on any site except this. I know it's a service listing site, but I called up the place where I work now and they were looking for someone to fill a position!:D

Modern windows are usually glazed with one large sheet of glass per sash, while windows in the past were glazed with multiple panes separated by "glazing bars", or "muntins", due to the unavailability of large sheets of glass. Today, glazing bars tend to be decorative, separating windows into small panes of glass even though larger panes of glass are available, generally in a pattern dictated by the architectural style at use. Glazing bars are typically wooden, but occasionally lead glazing bars soldered in place are used for more intricate glazing patterns.

A beam over the top of a window is known as the lintel or transom.

Tired of your old windows that don’t operate and let drafts in? Trust Advanced Windows and Doors to replace them with new retrofit windows.
For over thirty years customers have come to us for their window and door needs. We’ve transformed thousands of worn out windows into beautiful new windows and saved homeowners money on their energy bill.
Family Owned Business for over 30 years
The co-owners and brothers, Rick and Joe Romero, both born in Mexico, came to the United States with ambition, determination and were motivated to work hard. They started working for the company in 1970 and eventually positioned themselves to own it. They have co-owned the business for the past 21 years.
Guaranteed to have the best service, installation and prices
Our goal has always been to offer a high quality product and service for a fair price. We do this by taking the time to help our customers find the best windows for their homes at the best price. We help them understand the finer points of windows, as well as what makes sense for them in terms of their budget and their lifestyle.
Some people value an economic window; some value high quality. We cater to both customers and help balance value and quality.
Showroom and In House Installers
We have a showroom so our customers can see the windows they are considering for purchase and see exactly how we install them. This room is equipped with windows and displays to help educate customers on their options.
Often times, other companies use subcontractors to do the installation of their windows, leading to half-fast work and little respect for the home. Our installers are in-house which gives us the opportunity to train our crew and maintain a higher standard of installation and respect for the homeowner.
Same day installations – Nothing for the homeowner to complete
We listen carefully to our customers and by doing this we have refined our process to make the experience more enjoyable for the homeowner. Two things we know make a big difference:
Installations need to be done in a time efficient manner. Our installations are often completed in one day.
Nothing is left for the homeowner to complete. The inside is finished with painted molding or vinyl trim.
No hidden costs
Being able to give a fair and honest price is what has kept our business growing. With our company the price we give you includes the new windows, installation, delivery, taxes, disposing of windows and a manufacturer’s guarantee.
In this industry, there are low standards. There are a lots of ways to nickel and dime clients. We include what others charge for. We are constantly taking a look at what the industry has been doing and look for ways to improve it.
Our proven formula for success has allowed us to grow
In the next 2 years, we have plans to open 3 more locations due to the success we have experienced. We monitor our success based on the number of references and referrals we receive. Based on this measure we will be able to offer the same fair and ethical service to San Fernando Valley, the Inland Empire and Orange County.
