Spring is one of the best times of the year to replace old windows. This season brings the ideal weather conditions for many home improvement projects.
Prepare your home for window replacement in spring with these tips from a leading window company.
Before your window installer arrives, make sure to trim nearby trees, shrubs and other foliage that could get in their way. Clean the areas near your windows because dust and pollen on surfaces can compromise the efficiency of the caulk. It’s also a good idea to remove any outdoor furniture around the job site.
To protect your home from paint, dust and other debris, place drop cloths over your valuables and remove window treatments like curtains and blinds to prevent damage. Move furniture near the windows away so your can move easily. Deactivate your security system with window sensors before the installation starts. Also, don’t forget to keep your pets and kids away from where the work will occur.
Hire a Reliable Contractor
Keep in mind that even high-quality windows can fail when not installed properly. Only hire an experienced and reputable window contractor for your project. Before signing a contract, do your research, read reviews and ask for references. Make sure that the contractor you’ll work with has a proven reputation and offers superior products backed by comprehensive warranties.
