So you’ve finally decided to replace your window this spring. Window replacement is an investment and it is best to do everything right. There are preparations you will need to make to get ready for your next project. Window and roof replacement expert Oberg Roofing & Remodeling lists six steps you can take to prepare your home for window replacement.
- If your home has an alarm system, deactivate any that may connect to your current windows. You may contact a professional from your home security company to disconnect the alarms. Don’t forget to reconnect them after your window replacement.
- If you have children and pets at home, keep them away from the work area. This is for the safety of the crew and your loved ones. If you need anything near the work area, inform the crew before going near their space.
- Window and roofing companies tend to be messy with these projects. Window installation can shake your walls, so make sure that the work area is clear of anything fragile. Remove things hanging or leaning on the walls. This includes your window treatments if you’re saving them to use over your new windows.
- Window replacement can be dusty, too. It’s important to cover your furniture with sheets to protect them from dirt and dust. It is advisable to move your furniture four to six feet away from the work area.
- Clear any tree branches or shrubs that may block the working area. This will help the crew to have more space and install your windows properly. Some types of windows require bigger space to work on. Make sure to know how much space your new window type needs.
- Designate a separate workspace for the crew to set up their equipment. Prepare an electrical outlet near them. It’s also better to prepare your garage for the crew and their equipment in case it rains.
