Replacing your windows is an exciting springtime home exterior project that can greatly improve your home’s value, curb appeal, and energy efficiency. Once you’ve selected the right windows and have chosen good window and siding contractors to work with, the next step is to prepare your home for the big project. Here, we share the steps you should take to ensure that your window installation goes as smoothly as possible.
Clear the Work Area
Before the actual work begins, it is important that you clear away items such as furniture, wall hangings and shelves to prevent them from getting damaged during the installation. You may want to move these items to your basement or garage temporarily while the work is ongoing. This also gives the workers more space to work so they can complete the job more quickly and efficiently.
Create a Good Schedule
Replacing your windows will inevitably cause you to slightly change up your daily routine. To minimize the inconvenience of a window installation, it is critical that you plan ahead and create a good schedule that works for both you and your contractor. Window and roof repair companies recommend that you take time off from work and make arrangements for small children or pets to spend time away from your home while a job is underway.
Window installation can get quite messy and for items in your room that are fixed in place and cannot be stowed away, it is always a good idea to cover them up. While a good contractor will do their best to keep the work area as clean as possible, dust and debris cannot be completely avoided. To avoid ruining things like carpets, bathtubs, or shrubbery, be sure to lay down a piece of cloth or plastic to keep them protected and make cleanup that much easier.
