Give Them Access
Ideally, it is important to be onsite during your installation appointment. This will ensure that your contractors can easily enter your home and complete the project without issue. If you will not be available on-site, ensure a family member, friend, or neighbor can be there to let the crew in and monitor things in your absence. Also, remember to speak with your home security company to temporarily disconnect your alarm system as it may be triggered during the installation of new windows.
Create a Path
Window replacement requires a lot of movement. You want to ensure the installation crew has enough room to maneuver. Clear the room and your floor of any obstructions. Lock up your pets and keep your kids away. Remove trash cans, potted plants, toys, sculptures, and any decorations around the window areas. This will make the job easier, faster and keep everyone safe.
Clear Away Furniture
Removing old windows and placing new ones takes time. Now that you have created a pathway, if you have chairs, dressers, and couches under your windows, take them out of the way. You might also consider removing any wall hangings. While most window removal and installation do not require any form of demolition, you don’t want any precious portrait and artwork to fall and break.
Have a Storage Space
If you are replacing all the windows in your home, you may want to consider moving items to your garage or basement or rent a portable storage container. This is a simple way to avoid misplacing items, as your belongings are in one dry and safe space.
For items that must remain in place both in and outside your home. It is important to provide protection. Window installation can be a messy job.
