Getting new windows installed in your home is always exciting since you will experience the benefits that new windows can bring. From improved energy efficiency, enhanced curb appeal, and a variety of customizable window features, your home will be both aesthetically pleasing and have lower energy costs. Before you can reap those benefits though, your windows need to be installed, and if your home isn’t set for window installation day, you can face a lot of hurdles. Today, the trusted window installers here at FHIA Remodeling will go over some of the ways you can prepare for your window installation day!
Remove Items Around Your Windows
Before the window installation day, your windows need to be cleared to reduce the amount of mess as possible when your window replacements are installed. The last thing you want is for valuable items to get damaged simply because they were in the way. Make sure you take down and set aside any items either away from your windows or outside. Items to move or take down include:
Set An Established Pathway & Workspace
The window installers will need to have quick and easy access to your windows to install them. That is why you have to make sure that you have an established pathway they can follow to get to your windows. They will be carrying tools, materials, and other necessities to install your windows, so if their pathway has many potential obstructions, then there might be issues that will need to be taken care of on your end. Along with creating a pathway, you can also set a place for window installers to place their tools and equipment, preferably close to a wall outlet.
Supervise Children & Pets
Window installations can be very thorough and require the use of different tools and equipment. A window company will make sure that their window installers have all of the necessary tools and equipment they need to complete the window installation, such as:
- Power Drills
- Caulking Gun
- And more!
This can be a potential hazard for any children or pets that are present during the window installation. To prevent any potential harm from occurring to any children and pets, make sure you keep them away from the main area where the window installation will take place.
