So, you’re finally replacing your old, worn-down windows? Congratulations! Having new energy-efficient windows installed throughout your home can significantly cut down on your energy costs, improve your curb appeal and raise your home’s overall value. While replacing your old windows can be a very exciting process, it can also be quite intimidating if you are not well prepared. To make sure that the installation goes as smoothly as possible, here are a few springtime window installation tips from the home remodeling experts over at Reliable Remodeling.
Schedule an Ideal Time
Any home improvement project, no matter how small, can disrupt your daily routine. To avoid being inconvenienced, you may want to consider asking for time off at work while the project is ongoing. Most window replacement jobs will only usually last a day or two so you don’t have to worry about missing much. If you have pets and small children, it is also a good idea to make arrangements for them to be out of the house during this time.
Remove Furniture and Accessories
Before your window contractor begins any work, protect your furniture by covering them with blankets or sheets. Be sure that you take down any accessories like artwork and other wall hangings that can be damaged if they fall. Lastly, stow away any window treatments like curtains, shades and blinds.
Trim Your Landscaping
Window installers will need a clear path to be able to work properly. For this reason, it is always a good idea to do a little landscaping before they arrive. Be sure to trim any bushes, trees and shrubs that are near the work area to give the crew a nice clearance to work on the exterior of your home.
