Congratulations! You have decided to upgrade with Fremont, CA window replacement. This will bring so many benefits to the home including lower energy bills, better comfort, and increased property value. Now it is time to prepare for the installation. It will involve some minor inconveniences for a couple of days, but it will be well worth it when you are enjoying your new windows. Here are a few things you can do in your home to prepare for a smooth and quick installation process.
Clear a Path for Installers
Installers will be repeatedly moving through your home. So the first thing to do is make sure they have a clear path to every installation area in the home. This means moving anything that might be underfoot including plants, rugs, cords, and furniture. And since the installers will also be working outside, you will want to do the same for outdoor toys, plants, and furniture. Anything that might get in the way should be relocated until the installation is complete.
Remove Window Treatments & Wall Hangings
Another important step is removing the window treatments, especially if you intend to use them after the installation. You would be surprised how home homeowners leave these in place and then the installation crews have to take the time to remove them. Save time and reduce the risk of these items getting damaged by removing your window coverings and storing them out of the way. You will want to do the same with any wall hangings, artwork, and furniture next to the windows.
During installation, crews will do what they can to protect the construction area and keep it clean. But they will not have enough drop cloths to cover everything in the room. If you have concerns about construction dust on your new sofa, then you might want to cover some of your furnishings yourself.
Prepare a Worksite
During the job, the installation crew will want a worksite outside usually in the yard or driveway where they can unload tools and products for easy access. You will want to talk with the installer and figure out which area will be most convenient and then make sure to keep that space clear. Installers will also want quick and easy access to nearby outlets so they can run their tools without dragging extension cords through the entire house.
Make Home Accessible
Lastly, you will want to make the home accessible to the installation crew. This means not only remaining onsite during the installation to unlock the doors and let the installers in and out but also deactivating any alarms until the installation is complete. You will also want to let the security company know if any window sensors need to be removed, deactivated, and reinstalled with the new windows.
Planning ahead and preparing the home for Fremont, CA window replacement will save everyone extra time. Your installation appointment will run as smoothly as possible and the installation crew will be in and out before you know it.
