When you go through the details and choose just the right replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO for your home, the last step is to walk through the installation process. That process is exciting because once it’s complete, you have the new windows you are looking forward to enjoying. But it’s a noisy, messy process, too. And while you don’t have to be home during the installation, installers do prefer that you are there in case they run into any issues and need to ask questions. Once you set up the installation date, if you plan to be home, there are still plenty of things you can do to bide your time until the installation is complete. Here are a few ideas.
Clean Behind Them
You won’t want to go too overboard on cleaning because the dust is going to fly as the installers move through the house. But if they do the upstairs bedrooms, you could close the doors to those rooms, vacuum, and dust things. Then, leave the doors closed so the rest of the installation won’t disturb your cleaning. That can keep your time occupied for at least some of the day and then, by the end of the day, you won’t have as much of a mess to deal with.
Install Window Coverings
If you are putting the old window coverings back up over the new windows, you have everything you need to replace them. You can follow the installers room by room as they complete their job and re-install the window coverings so by the end of the day, the windows are in and the coverings are up.
You may have moved furniture out of the way so the installers could get to the windows easier and you likely took down pictures that were on walls that might be shaken with the window install. As installers finish a certain area of the house, you could go through and move the furniture back and replace the pictures. Once the day is complete, your house will be back in order—complete with brand new windows in place.
Spend Time Outside
If you want to be out of the way, but accessible, you could take a chair to the porch or deck and enjoy a good book. Put on some headphones to block out the noise and enjoy your day off. You could also spend time doing yard work so you don’t have to do that over the weekend. Or, do a little gardening and see what you can make grow this year.
There are plenty of things you can do in and around your house while the installers are working on putting in the replacement windows in Chesterfield, MO. While you can simply let them in and return to work, it really is best if you are home in case they have questions and need fast answers. The professionals at Masonry & Glass Systems Inc work fast to get out of your way soon.
