You’ve just chosen your new windows from the shop and called to set up an installation appointment. Things are starting to fall into place nicely and quickly. But did you know that there are a few things you can do as the client to make the window installation area the best it can be? Affordable Windows of Texas can assess your home for replacement windows and advise you on the best selections for your budget. We can install budget-friendly replacement windows as well as custom-made replacement windows.
Here are six pointers to assist you to prepare your home for replacement windows installation.
- Wash the area around the window.
Anything near the window, such as portable planters, pots, lawn furniture, and so on, should be moved until the replacement is finished.
- Wipe down the interior of the window.
Any furniture in your home that is close to the window should be moved out of the way to give the installation personnel enough room to work. Keeping the work area clear of obstructions reduces the chances of a crew member being injured or inadvertently damaging any of your things.
- Takedown any window treatments.
To allow workers free access to the wall surrounding the windows that are being rebuilt, any blinds, curtains, drapes, and other window coverings should be removed.
- Keep your floors safe.
To protect the floor around the sink, use plastic sheeting, a tarp, or a canvas drop cloth.
- Keep your valuables safe.
Remove any dust-sensitive items from the room and cover everything that cannot be removed with a plastic sheet.
- Keep your home safe.
While the installers are working, use drop cloths or floor-to-ceiling plastic sheeting to keep dust and debris out and the heat or cold air in.
