Careful planning is a must-do during any home improvement project, especially for a windows replacement project. But have you thought about what’s going to happen during installation day? To ensure a safer, stress-free process, your home has to be prepped and ready for the work ahead. Here are some handy tips.
1. Clear both indoor and outdoor areas of the window. This makes the windows more accessible to the installation company. Doing this is simple enough: just remove any plants, photo frames and other knickknacks from the window sill area. Any items hanging on the wall, whether they’re artwork or light fixtures, should be taken down. Is there encroaching greenery outside your windows? Tree branches and shrubbery that are too close to them should be trimmed before the installers arrive.
2. Designate paths the window installers can use. They will be walking around your home. To keep a smoother flow and prevent any mishaps, specify which paths and doorways your installers should use. You should also make sure there aren’t any furniture or other items blocking the way into your home and window area.
3. Protect your valuables. This means moving them somewhere else in the meantime. If it’s not possible to move all of them, cover them with plastic sheets to protect them from dust and debris. At the same time, talk to your choice of window installer and make sure both of you are on the same page about minimizing unnecessary mess inside your home.
