Replacing your old windows can give you many benefits. Apart from giving your home a facelift, having new windows installed helps increase your property’s overall value and boost your home’s energy efficiency. As with most home improvement projects, you’ll have to prepare not just yourself but also your home.
In today’s blog, Renewal by Andersen® of Montana, your local source of replacement windows and patio doors, shares the things you need to do when preparing your home for a window replacement project.
Clear the Installers’ Path
Since installers will make their way inside your house to remove your old windows and bring in the new units for installation, make sure that you clear the path for them. Move furniture pieces and decor so they can have easy access to your home’s openings and don’t inadvertently cause damage to your belongings. Do the same in your patio or yard; remove lawn furniture and potted plants that might be in the way.
Take Down Hanging Items
If you have curtains, drapes, blinds or any window treatments, remove them days before the scheduled window replacement project. Don’t forget wall decorations like artwork and picture frames and store them somewhere safe. You don’t want the window and door installation pros to knock down your items while they pass through doors and carry your new window units inside.
Protect Against Dust and Debris
Replacing windows can get messy. The installers usually have drop cloths or tarps to protect the flooring, furniture, flower beds, bushes and other important items from dust and debris. However, it would be best that you do so yourself a day or two before they arrive at your doorstep. Be sure to discuss this with them before you take this step.
