Now that you have finally made a choice about installing new windows in your home, you should realize that the work has just begun. It is now your duty to get in touch with an experienced and skilled professional that can help you carry out the window installation.
However, before the window installer will start installing the windows, you also have another role to play. At this point, your role is to prepare the window installation area.
So, how do you prepare the window installation area?
1. Prepare the area inside the window and its coverings
Window treatment materials such as shades, blinds, drapes, and curtains may affect the installation process. Therefore, you should remove them before the window installer comes to your home. If you also have wall art close to the areas where the installation of a replacement window will take place, you need to remove it and keep somewhere safe. You should also remove any items that are close to the windows that may disrupt the easy movement of the installers. All these steps are to ensure that the installation team does not mistakenly destroy any of the items in your room during the installation process.
2. Clean the area immediately outside the room
Apart from clearing the areas inside the room, you should also consider the area outside the room. Do you have any lawn furniture, flower pots or other items close to the windows from the outside of your home? If yes, you have to remove those items before the installation crew starts working. Also, if there are any shrubs or trees that may affect the work of the crew, cut them back as you prepare the window installation area.
3. Protect the items inside or close to the room
As the team is installing replacement windows, lots of dust will be generated. Hence, your belongings will become dirty before the installation is over. This can lead to more issues for you as you have to either go through the time-consuming process of cleaning the items on your own or pay someone to do it for you. You can simply avoid this by protecting all the items inside or close to the room that the dust may affect. Remove all the items from the room. If there are items that cannot be removed, get a plastic drop cloth or sheet to cover them.
4. Prepare the floor
Many of the tools that will be used for installing replacement windows can scruff or scratch the hardwood or stain the carpet with dust. So, you want to prevent this from happening by covering the floor with a canvas drop cloth, tarp, or plastic sheeting.
5. Prepare the driveway
The installation team usually needs to carry heavy materials into the room where the installation will take place. If there are items in the driveway, this will not only have the seamless movement of the installers but it may also cause safety problems. Take care of these potential problems by removing all the items in the driveway.
