While entrusting window installation to professionals is convenient, you’re in charge of home preparation. Readying your space for the actual replacement makes the lives of your installers much easier.
Statewide Energy Solutions discusses what you can contribute to make sure your window replacement goes smoothly:
Ensure Obstruction-Free Access
First of all, eliminate any obstacle in the work area. Professionals are trained to identify and manage hazards, but decluttering the job site allows them to work more efficiently and safely. The less they need to clear the way, the sooner they can get started.
Remove Wall Decorations
Do you have objects hanging on your walls? Do away with them ahead of installation to help the crew move around with ease. Leaving your decorations where they are makes the replacement of energy efficient windows trickier. Accidents can happen without knocking such items loose or down. The installation team might carry out the job tentatively, potentially causing them to make mistakes they would otherwise not have committed.
Take Window Treatments Down
Removing blinds, sheers and drapes can take a while. Deal with it one or two days before the scheduled arrival of the crew. Interior or exterior shutters might have to be taken down until the replacement finishes. If you’re not a confident do-it-yourselfer, make an arrangement to have someone qualified to do the heavy lifting for you.
Surrender Prime Parking Spot
Moving bulky, custom windows from the truck to the job site is exhausting. The amount of stress doubles when the installation crew’s vehicle is parked relatively far. To maximize the time and energy of your installers, make every effort to minimize the ground they need to cover.
Designate a Bathroom for the Crew
Dedicating one bathroom your installers can use during the project is a thoughtful gesture. In most cases, it would suffice to motivate them and make them enjoy working for you.
