There are many home improvement projects that are simple enough while others are majorly complicated. Choosing Kirkwood, MO window replacement products can take time and it can involve a lot of decisions. But once you get through all of those and you have the perfect options lined up, the installation is easy. All you really have to do is choose a good installation contractor and then stand back and watch the process.  

Should You Be Home During Window Installation? 

While it’s not absolutely necessary for you to be home, you will have to have someone let the installers in. And it’s always best for you to be on hand in case there are any questions. You can observe the work, keep tabs on how things are going, and help in any way you are needed. If the installers, for example, find structural damage around your old windows when they take them out, they might need to show you that damage and discuss what needs to be done before the new windows can go in.  

How Can You Stay Out Of The Way? 

Installers won’t be in every room of the house at once. The crews are generally pretty small and each window takes only about half an hour. They move from room to room, removing one window at a time and then replacing it. You can work on something in the kitchen while they replace the windows in the upstairs portions of the house. Once they need to be in the kitchen, you can put away laundry upstairs. Being available and in the house doesn’t mean you have to be by their side the whole way through.  

Can You Prepare Before? 

There are several things you will want to do before the installers arrive, but none of them take much time or are hard at all. You will want to take pictures down off walls that have windows on them to protect them from falling and breaking. You’ll also want to move furniture away from the windows and clear a path from the door to the windows so installers have an easy way in and out. Ask the installers for other suggestions as to things you can do in advance to make the process as easy as possible when the day arrives.
