  • Provide Access to the Windows: Make sure that the windows in each room are easily accessible. If furniture or other items are in the way, then you should shift everything to the other side of the room to provide space for the installation team to work. Moving the furniture in advance means that the workers will be able to access the windows as soon as possible, which decreases the time that they will need to spend in your home.
  • Remove Curtains or Blinds: If you have window coverings, make sure to take them down and move them out of the way before installation day. These items can get in the way and make it hard to put in the new windows.
  • Security Systems: Many modern security systems have pieces that are connected to the windows. These items should be removed so that they can be re-installed on the new windows. Talk to your security provider to see if you need to do anything with the security system before installing replacement windows.
  • Mental Preparation: It will be necessary for the window installation team to scrape and sand the area while they are working. As a result, it is expected that there will be a mess. Our installation team will bring floor cloths and clean up the mess after they are done. So, don’t be alarmed if you see a messy floor during the installation time. Consider using covers for the furniture and electronics if you want to protect the items in the room.
  • Provide Access: The easiest way to facilitate the installation is to ensure that you are home. Make sure that the entry points of the house are open so that the installers can come and go as needed.
  • Keep the Driveway Clear: It can be helpful for the installation team to park in the driveway or on the street in front of your house. Make sure that you keep the area open so that they can carry in materials, glass, and tools as needed.
