5 Steps to Prepare Your Home for Window Installation

04Mar

The decision to install new windows in your home is significant, offering numerous benefits such as greater energy efficiency, enhanced curb appeal, and increased property value. Preparing your home for the installation is crucial to ensure the process goes smoothly. Here’s how you can get started.

Understand the Installation Process

Before preparing your home, it’s essential to understand the window installation process. This will give you a better idea of what to expect and how to prepare appropriately. At Goverla Windows & Doors, our team of experts follows a systematic approach that involves measuring, removing old windows, installing new ones, and adding finishing touches. Knowing this can help you plan accordingly and be prepared for any inconveniences that may arise during the process.

Clear and Clean the Work Area

It’s vital to clear out the work area where the new windows will be installed. This includes removing furniture, curtains, blinds, or decorations on or around the windows. Not only does this create more space for our team to work, but it also protects your belongings from any potential damage. Additionally, having a clean work area ensures that our team can properly assess and prepare the window openings for installation.

Protect Your Home

Installing new windows involves using various tools and equipment, which can potentially cause damage to your home. To avoid this, cover your floors with tarps to protect them from scratches, stains, or debris. You can also use painter’s tape to protect your walls from accidental scratches or marks during installation.

Prepare for Noise and Dust

Window installations can be noisy and dusty, so preparing yourself and your family for this is important. Consider closing adjacent rooms where possible or wearing earplugs if you are sensitive to noise. Also, if you have pets prone to anxiety or are scared of loud noises, consider arranging for them to stay elsewhere or keep them in a quiet and secure area in your home during the window installation process.

Disable Security Sensors

If your home has security sensors on the windows, disabling them is recommended before installing new windows. By temporarily deactivating the sensors, you can prevent any false alarms from being triggered during the installation process. Remember to reactivate the security sensors once the new windows are securely installed to ensure continued protection and peace of mind for your home.
