Window Replacement: What To Expect And How To Prepare

Window Replacement: What To Expect And How To Prepare

A new window installation is a fairly easy process for the homeowner, as the installation crew will be doing most of the work. But before the crew shows up, there are a few ways you can prepare your home to make the process faster and easier for everyone. Taking steps to make the window installation process smooth will ensure the window installation is completed quickly and that there are no unexpected surprises, such as home alarms going off or any injuries to members of the crew. Once you complete these steps, all you have to do is sit back and let the professionals install your beautiful new windows.

6 Tips To Help Window Installation Go Smoothly

Clear The Area
Areas both inside and outside of your home should be cleared of any obstacles. Make sure to remove planters, pots, knick-knacks that live on the windowsill, and clear furniture away from the area. If you have bushes, trees, or other foliage that make the windows difficult to access, trim them down so the installation crew has more room. Clear the area around your window of anything that might be a tripping hazard to avoid injury, but also so the crew has ample room to move and doesn’t feel hindered while installing the windows.

Take Down Window Coverings
Clearing the area isn’t only limited to items on the floor. You’ll need to take down any blinds, curtains, curtain toppers, or any other drapery hardware on or near the window. Anything left up will be in the way of the installation crew and is at risk of being damaged.

Turn Off Alarm Systems
If your security system is connected to your windows, for example, if you have a break alert set up, make sure this feature is disabled during the removal of your old windows and while the window installation is taking place. You may need to contact your security system provider to disable and reinstall the sensors, so make sure you verify this before the day of installation.

Cover Anything You Want To Stay Clean
There will be some dust in the air when the windows get replaced so if you want to protect your carpet, lay down a tarp. You might also want to cover any nearby furniture with cloth. Even though they will be pushed aside, they may still get dusty. It’s also a good idea to take down or cover up any wall art nearby.

Keep Kids And Pets Elsewhere
While your windows are being installed there will be an easy exit to the outdoors for any pets to get through. Other than this, the house will have strangers and power tools around. This environment may be chaotic for both pets and children and it can be dangerous if either are left unsupervised near tools or loose materials.

Take Off The Needed Time
One of the homeowners will need to be at home for the installation, so make sure someone has time set aside in their schedule for the window installation. The amount of time the installation will take will depend on how many windows are being installed and how large or intricate they are. To help determine how long your specific installation will take, discuss this with your Calgary window installation company during your consultation.

FAQ

Low E stands for ‘low emissivity’. Low E windows are preferred by homeowners as they are more energy-efficient, maintain interior temperature, and offer better protection from UV Rays.
