Don't know what kind of windows you'll be using, but I recently
replaced my old windows with sunrise insulated vinyl windows. They
came and measured each old window, and then each window was custom
made for that particular space. This is a stucco house, and they
removed the old windows from the outside. As soon as an old window
was removed, the space was cleaned up and the new window was
installed. They used long screws (top and bottom) on each window side
and sealed everything with silicone chalk. I don't know if there is
any documentation that outlines the process on their web site
(www.sunrisewindows.com), but it would be worth glance. The crew
(about 8 guys) replaced 24 windows and did it in one day ( a long day,
8 man crew, 24 windows, 1 day: Average 3 windows per day per person.
That makes me feel pretty good! When I did my own windows, I was able
to do 2 a day, including cleanup. That's working alone and figuring
out most of the stuff as I went along. If I can do 2 a day and an
experienced crew can average 3, I'm pretty satisfied with myself.
