Window Replacement: Preparing for Your Appointment

Your windows play a key role in your home beyond letting in cool or warm air in your house. They define the facade of your home from the curb and they also help regulate the natural insulation and comfort levels of your home. When it’s time to replace the windows, it’s important to prepare before your window contractor arrives.

In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Montana shares things to prepare for your next window replacement.

Set Expectations

You want to be clear with the window company you’ll be working with on what exactly you want to accomplish during window replacement. Apart from the job order, you need to define your budget, available time as well as your personal goals regarding the installation of your new hardware.

Additionally, you or a family member should be present when the contractor visits for an estimate. This pre-project inspection is your opportunity to give the representative a tour of your windows and point out the things you want addressed.

Choose Your Windows

You also want to decide on what kind of windows you want installed. While there are many styles to choose from, some are better suited for certain homes than others. Sliding and picture windows, for example, have a minimalist appearance and are the preferred style for modern and contemporary homes.

Prepare Your Home

Finally, you’ll want to prepare your home for the actual visit. If it’s necessary to clear the room of any fragile items or heavy furniture, do so for a faster and safer installation.

At Renewal by Andersen® of Montana, we are the local company you can count on to properly install your new windows. Get in touch with us at (406) 259-3944 or fill out our contact form to learn more about our services and the window styles we have available. We look forward to working with you.


"I highly recommend Renewal by Andersen. We were treated well and everything went smoothly from start to finish. The company kept in contact with me before, during, and after the installation and let me know what to expect. I'm in love with my new windows! I will be using this company again when we refinish our basement. "
