Window replacement is a big undertaking that requires professional expertise. By hiring an experienced contractor rather than attempting to DIY the installation, you can minimize the risk of costly mistakes. However, there are a few things you can do on your end to make the process go more smoothly.
Step #1: Trim Foliage
Trim any trees or bushes near your windows. This will help your contractor access the work site more easily, making the installation process smoother and more efficient. It also helps protect your new windows.
Step #2: Clean the Surrounding Area
Before the window replacement project starts, clean the area around each window. Dust and pollen on unclean surfaces can mix in with the caulk of your new windows. This could compromise the performance of your new windows.
Step #3: Remove Obstructions
Finally, if you’re able to, remove any obstructions from the work area. Window treatments should be taken down and any furniture should be moved away from the area. By removing the window treatments, your contractor will have an easier time accessing the window itself, and you can also prevent damage to the window treatments. If you need help with these tasks, don’t worry–your contractor can certainly assist you.
