Tips to Help You Prepare for Your Replacement Window Installation

If you’ve recently decided to replace your old and inefficient windows and you have the installation day on your calendar, you may be wondering what else you need to do to prepare. Choosing your windows is the hardest part. Once you have hired our experienced team of window installation specialists at Lifetime Windows & Doors, you can sit back and relax knowing things will be completed with efficiency and accuracy. Here are some tips on how to make the replacement window process easy and stress free.

#1: Move things out of the way.
When your new windows arrive, your old ones will need to be completely removed. While this is something our team will take care of, you can make their job easier by moving things out of the way around the existing windows. For example, if there is furniture inside under the window or there are overgrown bushes on the outside, move the furniture and trim the bushes. In addition, ensure that pathways are clear in the areas that they will be working in, so they can haul the new windows in and the old windows out.

#2: Remove window treatments.
Any blinds or curtains that are attached to your old windows will need to be removed and stored. It’s also a good idea to take down surrounding paintings or wall décor so nothing gets knocked down during installation. Our team of window specialists are safe and attentive to each home’s surroundings, but it is important to minimize the risk of any accidents by removing things that surround it.

#3: Keep pets contained.
If you have pets, keep them away from the workspace, either in a closed room, closed garage area, or a crate. Pets could get anxious from construction noise, and we don’t want them to escape through a door that is open during installation.

In order to get ready for your installation project, it just takes a little bit of planning ahead and effort. This will ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible!
