Prepping Your Orem Home for Window Replacement
You’re making arrangements for window replacement, and you’re looking forward to installation day. Outfitting your Orem home with beautiful and highly functional windows is a great way to give your property a facelift, and the project pays off in energy savings. What’s not to like?
Your professional contractor will give you an idea of what to expect, and your only role on the day of installation will be to confirm the project details. That said, a bit of preparation before the work crew arrives can help ensure your window replacement goes as planned. Here’s what to do.
Disable Any Alarm Sensors
If you have any security sensors connected to your current windows, you’ll need to make sure they’re deactivated. Depending upon your alarm system, you may need to have your home security company handle the job – so, you don’t want to leave this step to the last minute.
Clear the Window Areas
To complete any window replacement project, the work crew needs ample room. Clear four to six feet of space around each window opening, moving the furniture and everything else out of the way. If you have bushes or shrubs growing close to the house, you may need to give them a trim.
Protect Your Belongings
Professional window installers make every effort to avoid causing any damage to anything in your home, but you’d be wise to remove any fragile or delicate items from the immediate area. Use sheets or drop cloths to protect your furniture from dust, and if you plan on reusing your window treatments, take them down ahead of time.
Establish an Outside Workspace
The window replacement crew will need an area to set up their equipment, and they’ll need a spot with access to an electrical outlet. Decide where the workspace should be before installation day – and if the weather forecast shows a good chance of rain, consider making room in your garage.
Have a Plan for Kids and Pets
For everyone’s safety, access to the work areas is restricted during a window replacement. If you have children or pets, it’s a good idea to keep them out of the house while the crew is working, and you may even want to arrange for your kids and furry family members to spend the day elsewhere.
