What should I do to prepare for my new window or door installation?
Since your window and/or door replacement involves our installation crew being inside and outside of your home as well as travelling between the two, there are a few things you can do to prepare and assist in the replacement of your windows and doors.
Firstly, keeping clear pathways between your entrance doors and windows and between your home and the installation trailer helps to create a worry free travel path for our installers through your property to ensure a smooth installation free of possible hazards.
On the interior of your home clearing away furniture, toys, rugs, etc. from your floor near the windows leaving at least 4 feet of space between the wall and aforementioned items is ideal. Our installers will lay down protective material on your flooring. Your installation will go much smoother and faster if the installers do not have to weave around items as they move around from window to window to door and between the inside and outside of your home.
In addition to moving furniture, taking down pictures from window adjacent walls is recommended as some window removals require the use of a hammer or jig saw which will create vibration in the walls while they are in use that could potentially cause pictures to fall. We do our best to reduce the amount of dust created during the removal, but it is a good idea to cover up your electronics or even delicate furniture as an additional precaution as your openings will be exposed to the outside for a minimal amount of time. Also please remember to have your window coverings (drapes, blinds, etc.) removed and put aside prior to our installation.
On the outside of your home, ensuring that there is space for the installation truck and trailer on a driveway or street in front of your house will minimize the travel time to bring out old product and bring in your replacement products.
