Whether you are replacing your windows for practical reasons or to simply boost the appearance of your home, spring is definitely a great time to get this project done. The season usually comes with good weather conditions, making it ideal for home improvement.
Here are a few reminders to help you prepare your home for your window replacement project.
Understanding the Window Replacement Process
It helps to have a general understanding of the window replacement process, particularly the approach that your contractor will use. This will allow you to have realistic expectations about the job and help guide you in preparing your home. For instance, by asking your contractors about the amount of space they will likely take up during the job, you can focus on preparing the affected space and clearing it of obstructions.
That said, it’s really important to work closely with your contractor. Window replacement also requires planning and coordination between you and the window installer. Some companies would be happy to do most of the prep work, so you might want to inquire about this service, too.
Essential Tips on Preparing Your Home for Window Replacement
Below are some specific tasks that you can do to prepare your home for window replacement:
Remove curtains, blinds or any window treatments prior to the workers’ arrival.
If there are furniture or other items near your windows, make sure to move them to a different room or area in your home. By relocating them for the meantime, you can protect them from any damage while the installation of the new windows is being done.
Deactivate motion sensors and alarm systems that may be connected to your existing windows. Make sure to discuss this with your home security company and have them reconnect the system after your new windows are installed.
Check your surroundings, and make sure that tree branches and shrubs near your windows are trimmed back. Ensure that these things won’t get in the way of your window installers.
