New windows improve curb appeal, reduce energy costs, and add value to the property. Homeowners who have window installation in Aurora, IL scheduled, should prepare for installation day by following these tips.
Remove All Window Dressings and Hardware
When installers show up to install new windows, they want to get right to work. It’s not their job to remove curtains, blinds, and hardware from the existing windows. If these items haven’t been removed by the homeowner, the workers might opt to reschedule the installation. At the very least, it holds up the job, and the installers might have to charge overtime.
Cover Furnishings, Flooring, and Delicate Landscaping
Most people don’t realize how much dust and dirt window installation generates. Protect your furniture, flooring, and other household valuables by covering them with sheets or plastic before the installers arrive.
Window installation requires installers to work inside and outside of the home. Therefore, homeowners should cover any delicate landscaping that’s in the area where installation occurs.
Keep the Install Area Clutter-free
The installers should have a clear path to the windows. Make sure there’s enough room for scaffolding, ladders, and other tools or equipment. Remove toys, furniture, outdoor patio furniture, and anything else that could impede the crew’s safety.
Prepare for a Long Day
Not all window installations take all day, but homeowners should prepare to clear their schedule for the day. In some cases, when every window in the home’s being replaced, it might take several days for the crew to complete the job.
