Glazed By Friday For The Win

Updated: Jun 26


You have to glaze by Friday if you want to finish the job on time and get paid. Glazing by Friday takes advantage of the natural two day break that most people take. Clients don't want you working at their homes on the weekend, and you have stuff to do with family and friends. It's two days that most people take for granted.


Timing is everything on a window restoration job. Timed and executed correctly, a good team can complete a 10 window restoration project in 10 days - one window per day complete. Assuming a three person team, break the order of operations down like this:

Week 1 - The First Five Days


Day 1 (Monday) - Mechanical Makeovers to four openings, eight sash deglazed in the steam stripper.

Day 2 (Tuesday) - Mechanical Makeovers to four openings, eight sash deglazed in the steam stripper.

Day 3 (Wednesday) - Mechanical Makeovers to two openings, four sash deglazed in the steam stripper before lunch. After lunch, strip, prime and glaze the first four sash from the first day.

Day 4 (Thursday) - Strip, prime and glaze eight more sash.

Day 5 (Friday) - Strip, prime and glaze the rest of the sash.
