5 Steps to Prepare for Your Window Installation

You can take 5 steps to prepare for your window installation. Here is a helpful list of how to prepare for the new windows being installed:

  1. Cleaning the windows inside and outside areas. To give the installation team ample room to work, you should relocate everything in your home that is close to the window at least three feet away. Keeping the workspace clear can lessen the possibility of an accident or an unintentional crew member damaging any of your possessions.
  2. Protect your flooring. Covering the flooring next to the installation area is a great suggestion for how to prepare for window installation. Use plastic sheeting, a tarp or canvas drop cloth. By taking the time to protect your floor, you may limit dust from getting into the carpets and avoid having hardwood accidentally scratched or scuffed.
  3. Take down the window treatments. In order to enable installers free access to the wall surrounding the windows, all window coverings, including blinds, curtains and drapes should be taken down. Additionally, you should take down any wall decor, hangings and paintings that are close by.
  4. Cover your furniture around. The replacement of the windows, like most renovation projects, can produce dust, which can then settle on the room's furniture. Dust-sensitive items should be tried to be removed from the room, and anything that cannot be removed should be covered.
  5. Deactivate the alarm system. Do not forget to inform the alarm provider of the impending work if any of the windows have alarm systems. It will be necessary to remove the sensors, and the alarm provider might need to come to the spot to reinstall them.
