If we’re being honest, we have to say that window installation can be a bit of a messy project.
When you hire experienced professional installers – like the team here at Rocky Mountain Windows & Doors – you can expect the crew to keep the debris to a minimum. But, there’s no denying that you’ll have a few tasks to complete after the installation work is done. To make everything as easy as possible, take the following steps before the installers arrive.
Prepare Your Windows for Replacement
Curtains and blinds will be in the way during window installation, so they’ll need to come down. The crew can handle this job, but why not take this opportunity to clean your window coverings? That way, once the installers leave, you’ll be ready to quickly put them back in place.
Also, if your home has a security system, contact the company. Arrange for someone to disable and remove the window sensors before your installation and for the replacement of the sensors when the work is complete.
Create Space to Work Inside Your Home
Some of the window installation work will need to be completed from inside your home. Move any furniture and decorative accessories out of the way, and cover it all with drop cloths or plastic sheets as a safeguard against dust.
In addition, make sure the installers have a clear path from your front or back door to the areas where you’re replacing windows. Give the crew plenty of room to get the necessary work done, and the project will reach completion much faster.
Clear Your Yard and Protect Your Plants
Much of the time during your window installation, the crew will be working outside of your home. If you have any lawn furniture, kids’ toys or grilling equipment close to the house, move them elsewhere to create space and allow for the placement of ladders and scaffolding.
While you’re out in the yard, give thought to your plants. Professional installers aren’t going to trample through your gardens, but accidental damage could occur. To help prevent this and protect your plantings, mark them off with brightly colored flags.
