Window replacement is a big project. Not only do you need to invest a significant amount of time, resources, and effort, you also need to hire the right people. Having to handle so many factors means it can be tough to stick to the schedule. Here are some tips that will help:
1. Determine Your Project Priorities
The first step in your window replacement in Portland is determining your priorities and setting the scope of your project. Research the window styles and designs you want for your home, along with their proper placement. Different windows work well for different rooms; casement windows fit places that you need to reach, while picture windows suit rooms overlooking a view.
Setting a clear scope for your project is important because it prevents overspending and project delays. If you decide on a particular style and number of replacement windows, stick to it; you’ll create a good schedule and minimize delays.
2. Write Down Your Goals And Priorities
Having a list of goals and priorities handy will help make communication between us clearer. This makes it easy for us to fulfill your expectations and meet your needs. It will also serve as your guide during the project. Having guidelines in place keeps us all from getting off track, which might cause delays.
3. Set A Budget And Contingency Fund
Have a budget for your project that you are comfortable with, and then set aside 20% of that budget for contingencies. While we make every effort to give you a smooth window replacement, surprises can be inevitable in any project. This fund will make your project more flexible and make it easier to maintain the schedule. Should you not use your contingency fund, you have money to spend on another part of your home!
