With sunny skies and warmer temperatures, there’s no better time than spring to finally tackle window replacement. When replacing your windows, many companies offer full-service: from consultation and initial diagnostics to installation and clean-up. The goal is to make the experience as worry-free for you, the homeowner, as possible. However, there a few things you can do on your end to ensure a smooth and stress-free project.
Here are a few tips from Renewal by Andersen® of Austin.
Preparing the Worksite
Certain styles of windows require plenty of room to be installed properly. For example, because casement windows swing open on a hinge, they need more clearance than sliding or double-hung windows. If you have trees or shrubs that are in the way of the window, it may be necessary to trim them a little bit before the workers arrive. You can also help by clearing away any debris around the work area before the start of the project.
Our professionals at Renewal by Andersen® are trained to leave your home even cleaner than when they arrive. However, you can also help by moving large pieces of furniture out of the way before the work begins, ensuring the contractors have easy access to the work site.
On the day of the installation, keep pets in a safe space away from the work area. This is for the safety of both your furry friends as well as the workers. Some types of windows, particularly custom windows, may take a little longer to install, so you may want to consider boarding your pet with a friend or family member while the work is underway.
