Things to Do When Preparing for Window Replacement

replacement window installation is best left in the hands of the professionals, but that doesn’t mean you no longer do your part in making this home improvement project a success. Before the scheduled date of installation, you have to do some preparations in your home. Read on as we discuss the things you should do to make sure the project is completed as smoothly as possible.

Make Way for the Installation Crew


Before the installers visit your home to begin the installation, see to it that any obstructions along the pathways leading to the likely work zone are removed. This way, they can move around your home easily as they take out your old windows and bring in the replacement window units. Pay attention to pieces of furniture that may be in the way, as well as fixtures along the corridors and staircases. Keep the windows bare; remove curtains and other ornaments surrounding them.


Protect Your Valuables


picture window installation can get messy because of the removal of the old window unit. Heavy pieces of furniture and interior fixtures that can’t be relocated can be covered with drop cloths to protect them from dust and debris. Don’t forget the outdoor greenery directly above the windows that are going to be replaced.


Prioritize Safety


Safety is of the utmost importance in a window replacement or any home improvement. If you have pets, keep them secured in a designated area in your home far away from where the installers are doing work. Remind your children not to go near the work zone to keep them safe from all the mess and potential hazards.
