How to Prepare for Window Installation
Buying new windows to replace the old ones is a huge project. Therefore, knowing how to prepare for window installation can help keep things on track. Here is how to go about it.
Remove Window Attachments
Blinds, curtains, alarms, and other window attachments usually take time to remove and will get in the way of the installation process. Therefore, all window treatments and extensions hanging over the window should be removed before installation. This may include wall hangings, trimmings, or pictures near the window. Ensure you clear and keep anything that may derail the window replacement process safely away from your windows.
Clearing the Way and Covering Furniture
Our installers will repeatedly move in and out of your home, room to room, carrying tools and heavy windows. Therefore, you should ensure they can easily access all the windows that should be replaced. To clear their way, move your furniture and other obstacles that may block their path. This will give installers plenty of room to walk, work and move equipment without risk of injury.
Additionally, the window replacement process can be a dusty and dirty job. Covering your furniture, mattresses, and other furnishings with drop cloths can help prevent them from getting dirty during installation.
Clearing the Outside of The Windows
Pella Windows & Doors installers will also need access to the exterior area under your windows. Therefore, take time to clear the walkway and area around your windows. You can remove any lawn furniture or décor, and ornaments. This will give the installer enough room to reach the window or set up a ladder.
Overgrown trees and bushes may also block safe access to your windows. They make it impossible for installers to move large windows to their destination. Prune them to clear an open path to your windows. Take a walk around the exterior of your home to ensure it's clean and free from debris.
