3 Helpful Tips on Prepping Your Home for a Window Installation

You’ve finally made the thrilling decision of replacing your tired and ordinary windows. Whether you’re trying to save on energy bills, add property value in the future or simply update the design of your place, preparing for the upcoming installation work is a must.


No worries – window replacement experts from Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey suggest following these helpful tips to make everybody’s role a bit more efficient and prevent the tedious task of cleaning up.


Clear the Pathway for the Installers


Grant your trusted window installers a tidy work space by removing unnecessary items like chunky furniture, faux plants and rugs near the window area. This will serve you well because it lessens the chance of unexpected damages or stains. 


Outdoor decorations like wreaths and sculptures should also be kept away to make room for installation equipment like ladders and scaffolding, especially if you have upstairs windows. If you’re planning to get bow and bay windows that distinctly jut out from the exterior walls of your home, prioritize cleaning up the area. The safety of installers should be a prime concern as well. 


Look for Storage Space


Now that you have removed quite a number of your belongings, finding an adequate storage space to store them is the next step to consider during the installation process. Ensure that your items are all located in one place and no issue of misplaced items will occur.


If you plan to use a portable storage container, schedule ahead and have it delivered directly to your home.


Take Down Accessories 

Take down window treatments such as curtains, blinds and draperies, and other wall decorations near the windows to avoid unwanted cuts and blemishes on your important items. This is especially vital concerning larger pieces of windows like sliding windows because extra effort must be made in removing and installing.
