It’s very exciting to have replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO installed onto your home. Once you choose the windows with great care, order them, and have them come in, the last step is to have them delivered and installed. When you set that date, you need a little time before the installers arrive to do a few chores of your own. The installers want to arrive and get right to work and not waste any of your time. They can get the windows onto your house in a day (or maybe two, depending on how many windows you have) and they want to take advantage of as much time as they can from the start. Here are some things to do beforehand to ensure they can get right to work.
Do you have a bed with a headboard right up against the windows? A couch that sits against the living room window? A room where you have to weave in and out of the furniture to get to the windows? Move the furniture around in any room that blocks the windows or makes it hard to get to them. IT will make it easier on installers and safer as well.
Take Down Pictures
You don’t want anything to happen to your family photos or any artwork you have hanging, so take down the pictures that are on the walls with windows in them. Those walls are going to shake and rattle as the windows come out and go in and they could easily knock things off the walls so it’s best to place them flat somewhere safe.
Remove Window Coverings
Whether you are going to put the old window coverings back up, or get something new to go with the new windows, the old coverings are going to have to come down before the installation. You don’t want anything blocking your windows and the coverings are definitely blocking them.
Make Outlets Available
Installers might need power for their tools so you might want to go through the house room by room and make sure they have some outlets they can use. Take some power cords out of the way and fold them up so they aren’t tripping hazards. Make paths to those outlets that make them easy to access once the installers arrive.
There might be other things the installers want you to do before they arrive and they can give you a list of those items when you make the installation date. Getting replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO can be noisy and a bit of a mess, but once you get past the installation and you have the windows you want, the benefits are so high it’s all worth it.
