Do you have a window installation project coming up in the near future? If that’s the case, then you should know that the entire process is a major undertaking, so it’s important for you and your Cincinnati home to be ready for it. Knowing what to expect and how to prepare is important for minimizing disruptions and ensuring optimal results. Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati shares a quick guide on what to do to prep your home before the window experts arrive at your place.
Aside from slowing down work, clutter can also create hazards that can lead to damage or injuries. Make sure that the areas around where the windows will be placed are clear of plants, furniture or other items at least a few days before the project starts. And don’t forget to keep the driveway clear so workers will have somewhere to park and put the tools and materials needed for the project.
Secure Your Stuff
Window installation will involve a lot of banging and vibrations, so it’s best to secure any hanging objects to prevent them from falling. In fact, some window experts even recommend taking down framed pictures and stowing fragile items away while they’re installing casement or double hung windows. The fewer items that are at risk of falling while the work is ongoing, the better.
Lay Out the Sheets
Tidying up is a great start, but you can also help speed up the process by laying down plastic sheets and drop cloths in advance, which will make it easier to clean up the mess afterwards. This also speeds up the process by allowing our workers to get right to work installing the window instead of having to take time prepping the area.
Inform the Pros
There may be times when your installation crew will need access to a power source near the work area to plug in a power tool necessary for installing your casement windows. While they will usually have their own extension cords, it would be a good idea to have some of your own handy to save time and make things easier for the workers. Informing them of the nearest outlet that they can access would be helpful as well.
