How Do I Prepare My House for Replacement Windows?
If you’ve decided to invest in new replacement windows, congratulations! New windows can significantly transform numerous aspects of your home—from its energy efficiency and security to its interior and exterior appearance. Before you can start experiencing all of the benefits of new windows, however, there are a few steps that you’ll want to take to prepare for installation. By putting in just a little bit of effort, you can prevent mishaps and help the installation process go smoothly, which is always worth it. Consider the following tips to prepare your house for an efficient window installation:
Clear the Way
If your installers walk into your home ready to do the job, but there’s a bunch of household items and décor blocking their way, you’re just going to waste time having to clear it all out while they wait. Who wants that? Instead, remove everything around the windows so that your installers have access, including any yard sculptures or other décor on the exterior of your home.
Remove Window Treatments
In addition to clearing the floor area inside, you’ll want to remove any window treatments, such as curtains, blinds, and shades.
Cover Floors & Furniture
Window installation can be messy work. Instead of allowing dust and other debris to get onto your furniture and floors, consider supplementing the drop cloths the installers will bring with additional cloths or plastic tarps to be safe.
