After you have chosen the right windows, have determined the best company to install your windows, and have set a date, it is time to think about what you need to do – and what you should not do – to get ready for your installation. Keep reading to get some ideas of what we mean, but trust that when you choose Progressive Insulation & Windows at (800) 500-6200, we will provide comprehensive instructions before the day of installation.
Ask the Window Company for a List of Prep Items
The easiest way to find out what you need to do is to find out from your window installation company. They should provide you with details on what furniture needs to be moved, how long they will be there, etc. However, if they have neglected to do so, then we recommend calling them to find out. You do not want to wait until the last minute to get things done.
Don’t Wait for the Last Minute
It is likely that you will know days in advance the time your window installation company is going to show up. Do not wake up 20 minutes before they arrive and try to get everything done. This is something you should take your time to ensure that your belongings are safe and that the window installation process is as efficient as possible.
Organize Everything You Take Down
Depending on how your home is decorated and where your windows are, it is likely that you will need to take down pictures and other items on the wall. Do not simply take everything off and pile it in one area because it might be hard to remember where everything went. Organize everything you take down. Take photos before you remove anything so you can review them to find the location of everything you must replace.
Have a Plan for Your Pets
If you have pets in your home then you should have a plan for what you will do with them during the installation. The installers will need to open doors to bring in windows, and during the installation process there will be moments where a dog or cat could escape out the hole the new window will be going in. Whether your keep your pets in one part of the home that is not getting work done on it, or you take them somewhere else for the day, it is important to have a plan in place.
