Since window replacement is one of those home improvement projects you’ll go through at least once in your lifetime, it pays to get it done right the first time. Aside from hiring a qualified and experienced contractor for the job, you’ll also have to prepare yourself and your home. This way, you can save time and ensure everything goes along smoothly.
STL Windows Direct shares things you can expect when preparing for your window replacement project.
The time it takes for the pros to complete the project will depend on the number of windows that will be replaced. If only one or two windows will be replaced, expect the job to be completed within the day. In some cases, a single day is enough to install up to more than five replacement window units, especially if there’s an adequate number of professional installers in the crew.
The Need for Temporary Relocation
One of the questions you can ask your window installation contractor during the planning phase is whether or not you and your family should move out temporarily for the entire project. If only a few windows will be replaced, it would be best to stick around and be within calling distance when the foreman or one of the crew members has questions. Make sure, however, not to hover or micromanage. Give them space to perform their best work so you can be satisfied with the results.
See to it that you prepare your home days before the installation date. Remove decorations, artwork, curtains and anything hanging from your walls. Move pieces of furniture and appliances out of the way. If necessary, get the pros to help you relocate them when they arrive. Cover your valuables with plastic sheets or drop cloths to prevent dust from settling on them. Keep children and pets away from the work zone as possible.
