Ask Plenty of Questions
Before we arrive at your Carolina home, ask the installation team any additional questions you have. Here are a few good suggestions:
– Where you should keep your pets during the installation process?
– Whether or not you need to be home during the installation?
– Who will clean up after the installation?
– What temperature the house needs to be during the installation?
Clear out an Area in Your Home
Even though most window installations are done from outside your home, your contractor will need access to the interior area during the installation process. Make sure that the area around your window is cleared on both the outside and inside of your home to avoid any tripping hazards.
Talk to us for any further specifics.
Prepare Accessible Outlets
Your contractor may need to plug in their electric tools like air compressors or nail guns to complete the project. If so, make sure that your outlets are empty and available for your installer.
Remove Any Window Treatments
Before your contractor arrives, make sure that you remove any window treatments that may get in their way, such as curtains, blinds, or drapes. If you are un-able to let us know and we will be happy to see what we can do for you.
Take down Any Wall Decor
In addition to removing your window decor, you should also remove your fragile wall decor. This way, if your contractor is hammering loud enough for your decor to fall, it won’t become damaged.
Contact Your Home Security Provider
If you have a home security system installed, contact them to remove or disable your window sensors to avoid triggering your alarm during the installation process. Also after the windows have been properly installed make sure to call them back to insure your home is properly secure.
Cover up Your House
Window replacement is efficient work, but it can also get dirty. Even though we will put down drop cloths, you should add drop cloths yourselves. The last thing you want is your floor or furniture to become damaged. However, it’s also worth talking to your personal installer about covering up your floor and belongings, since they may have a better suggestions.
