How to prepare for having windows replaced
When a customer makes the choice to replace or upgrade their windows, making the process quick and painless is a key concern. The following guide will cover a brief outline of some of the most important steps any homeowner should take to ensure their replacement windows installation is hassle-free.
Measure it up
If you’re an installer you will execute this practice each and every day, measure once, cut twice. A process that ensures a perfect fit every time. But homeowners may not consider providing a detailed set of measurements to their installers can aid the process and reduce the risk of error. our powerful, free QuoteBuilder provides consumers with an accurate, detailed window quote for their job.
One easy way to make everyone’s job simple is to ensure a clear work area. Removing any furniture such as paintings or drawers indoors; as well as moving furniture or plant pots in the vicinity outdoors, is a highly beneficial process to complete before the work begins. Not only will this speed up the job, it will make cleaning and getting back to normal life a much quicker task afterwards.
As you will know, replacing windows is a messy job. If there is any furniture that cannot be moved, make sure that it is well covered to prevent dust or debris from building up. Heavy sheets should be used, to cover objects. Tape coverings down where possible to prevent any debris slipping through gaps. This also goes for any fittings, such as light switches or electrical outlets as well as the flooring in the area.
This should be done prior to the work beginning, ideally by the customer, to speed up the process further.
If the customer is unavailable on the planned installation dates, they will hopefully provide access to the property in their absence, either directly to you, or through a trusted family member or neighbour.
Finally, it’s important to ensure that on the installation dates easy access to the property is provided, ensure there is space for easy unloading and removal of your new and old windows. An empty driveway is ideal.
