If you have come to the realisation that it is time for you to change the window panes all around your house, you must have also realised that there is a lot of work that must be done before the process is complete. But, bear in mind that you stand to gain several benefits from this upgrade and all of the work will be absolutely worth it. In addition to your house having an increased aesthetic appeal, it will also improve the circulation of air and comfort within your house and save you a whole lot of money on electricity bills. Listed below are a few tips you can follow before the installation process to make sure that the entire thing goes off well-
- Clear the windows- before your new windows are installed, you will have to make sure that the space is cleared and there is enough room for them to properly fit. This means you have to remove all ornamentation around windows as well as whatever curtains or blinds you have fitted. If the panes being replaced are around gardens or plants, make sure that they have been cut to leave space for the installation crew to stand and work comfortable. This will reduce the amount of effort that needs to go in to fixing the windows as well as will ensure that the process is done as fast as possible
- Turn off security- if you have an alarm system installed, it is necessary that you turn off all sensors around your windows so that the installation process is not hampered in any way. For this, you may have to call the company or service that deals with your security and inform of the necessary measures that are to be taken
- Clear a path- during the installation process, several heavy items will be moved around. For these objects to be moved from the company’s truck to the windows in one piece, it is important for the workers to have a spacious path on which they can comfortably transport everything. Make sure that there is nothing lying around that could cause anyone to trip or fall, causing harm to the equipment as well as themselves. And of course, any pets in the house should be kept away from the entire area until the whole process is complete
- Cover up- bear in mind that installing new window panes involves the use of different tools to fix things into your house. This could result in some dirt and dust flying about and so, to avoid a mess and hassle later, try to cover all surfaces with newspaper or cloth. This includes any furniture as well as carpets, rugs, and artwork. Ideally, your installation company should clean up after them so you will not be left to do all the dirty work
Before you follow any of these tips, ensure that the window installation company you use is one that is certified and reputed.
