If you've made the decision to replace your home's windows—congratulations! You are on your way to saving energy, lower electric bills and an updated look for your home. If you hired a professional company to replace one or all of your windows, take some time to prepare your home for the workers arrival and the tasks that will be completed. Here are some tips to make this upgrade go as smoothly as possible.
Clear the Area
Making the area as accessible as possible is your first step. Move all furniture, tables, lamps, etc away from the window being replaced. Clear any clutter off of nearby floors and don't leave anything on staircases or steps. If your whole house is getting new windows, you may want to consider renting a small storage container that can be left on your property.
Outside your home, remove any décor you may have hanging on or around your windows. Clear away lawn furniture or decorative items like bird baths, flags or your favorite garden gnome. The company may need room for ladders and scaffolding if they are accessing a second story window.
