You are going to have a lot of jobs to do when your home needs replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO. First, you will have to figure out a budget for the process. Then, you will have to decide which window company you want to use for the project. You will also have to think about what you want for the home and make all of the choices on the windows among the many different options. Once you get through all of that and the windows are ordered, you can breathe a sigh of relief. However, the installers are going to have jobs for you, too. And doing those jobs will help you to prepare your home for the installing process so it will go more smoothly. Here are a few things they will likely ask you to do.

Remove Window Coverings

All of the window coverings that are over windows being replaced are, of course, going to be in the way. You will have to take them down in order to allow the installers easy access to the windows. They don’t want to damage the coverings and they don’t want them to be in the way so they can get the job done efficiently and effectively. Taking the window coverings down makes the job faster and easier for the installers.

Remove Pictures

You likely have photos, paintings, and other art lining your walls. Anything on the walls that have windows on them needs to be taken down. Taking windows out and putting new windows in can shake the walls and that can cause things to fall off. The installers don’t want to accidentally damage anything so they will ask that you take those wall hangings down so they can work with ease and not worry about causing anything to fall.

That might mean moving furniture away from the windows, shoving a few things to the side, and taking up rugs so they aren’t a tripping hazard. Having a clear path will help installers get there faster and safer.
