Just like when anything major occurs in your home, there’s a strong possibility you can become quite stressful when it comes time for a home improvement project. In Wednesday’s post we shared some tips on making things go smoother when you’re having new siding installed. In this post we’ll talk about replacement window installation.
As with any other time you’re having work done in, on, or around your home, the best thing you can do is to be prepared as much as possible. That way you can avoid worry, anxiety, and stress. Hopefully you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy the process, just like this woman here!
It also helps if you have a clear idea on what to expect.
Use these tips to prepare yourself (and your home) before replacement window installation day sneaks up on you.
How to Get Ready for Having Minnesota Replacement Windows Installed
Prepare All Work Areas: When it comes to preparing all of the work areas that will be involved, make sure that you clean up debris in the vicinity as well as remove things that might be obstructive. That includes things like moving potted plants to another spot, taking down trellises, storing lawn furniture that’s near the house, etc. We’ll take special care to make sure we don’t damage your landscaping, but anything that can be moved out of the way should.
We also request that you make sure your pets won’t be out investigating. We love animals, too, but they can get in our way or get hurt unintentionally.
Replacing windows in the home can be a process but it is one that doesn’t have to ruin the items around where the new windows are going.
Exchange Contact Information with Your Window Company
Provide your replacement window contractor with contact information so they have a way to reach you in case something comes up. This is especially important if you’re not going to be there when the work is done. Do they have your cell phone number? Is there someone else they can call if they can’t get a hold of you? Do they have your email address?
And you should expect the same from them. Your contractor should let you know who the lead installer is as well as giving you contact information for that individual as well. You should also know who to call at the company if you have questions or issues during the installation.
Know that Replacing Windows Will Be Noisy
They will be removing windows and adding new ones so you expect to have some noise when it comes to having them replaced. Again, this is one of the reasons we suggest that you find temporary quarters for your pets as loud noises can be stressful for them as well.
