How To Prep for A Window Installation
Getting started with your windows installation project? Awesome! Now you must be wondering how to prep for a window installation. There are a couple of things to think about. First of all, you need to know that doing a window installation is very invasive. Installers will be working on both the inside and outside of your house. They will need easy access to your windows, so if you have furniture in front of the window, we recommend moving it away by about three feet. The installers will place drop clothes that are around three to four feet wide, so it’s important to have that amount of free space. These clothes will help keep your floors clean of debris and any mess that may come with the installation.
Another thing to keep in mind is that pulling out your old windows can be a little aggressive. This could cause your walls to move a little bit, so we recommend talking down frames, mirrors, and other hanging decor to prevent them from falling and potentially breaking. We also recommend covering any large valuables with a cloth. Not all windows installers have perfectly clean clothes, so if you have something valuable, such as a grand piano, you should play it safe and cover it yourself.
If you’re a pet owner, you may have to think about leaving them at the daycare for the day or dropping them off at your friend’s house. Why? Installing windows is a day-long process, and for the safety of your furry friends and busy installers, keeping your pets away from the installation zone is important.
