If you wish to make the most out of your window installation project, you must make sure that the process will be as smooth sailing as possible. To do that, here are three things that you must do to prepare your home for this type of home improvement project:

Make room for the project.

It is best that you remove any tables or chairs in the way. After doing that, go outside and evaluate the premises. Remove any plants, decorations and equipments in the area where the windows will be installed. In the event that the window installation will take place at the second floor of your home, you would have to move the lawn furniture to make room for the scaffolding and ladders that they have to use to get the project done. By doing this, you are giving the installers a space to work and a chance to install your windows in the best and easiest way possible.

Remove any window treatments.

If you have any window treatments, like curtains, blinds and shades, it is recommended that you remove these before the scheduled date of installation.

If you are planning to have bigger windows installed, all hardware surrounding your existing window must be removed.

Ensure protection of your flooring and other appliances.

  1. Great advice to protect the floor and anything around the project. You don’t want to risk damaging anything and adding costs to your project. Thanks so much for the advice.

  2. We’re getting a couple of windows in the kitchen replaced (they let the cold in), so thanks for the tips on getting ready for it. I like what you said about protecting the floor; we have hardwood underneath these windows and I’d hate for it to get scuffed. We’ll have to put some plastic down first. Great post!
