If you’re new to home-owning (whether buying or building) chances are you’ve got questions about your windows. Hiring a window pro is an important part of that process.
There are a few things you’ll want to do if you’re hiring a window pro before, during, and after the visit.
This will help your professional to be as efficient as possible.
Clear The Work Area
You’ll want to clear the area of work for your window pro. Move furniture, toys, tools, etc. away from the work area so that your pro can work safely and quickly.
The area outside your window work area should be as clear as possible. Remove window decorations, yard tools, etc. away from the work area. Your window pros may be using ladders and scaffolding so they will need space to work.
Helpful Tip: Whether you’re moving into your home or in the process of building, chances are you need storage space. There are portable storage containers that can be delivered to your home which you can store furniture and other items you wish to keep clean and out of the way during your window installation process.
Keep kids and pets clear of the working area. As cute as they are, a work area can be dangerous for them and disruptive to your professionals. Help your window pro focus on the job by entertaining kids and pets elsewhere.
Prepare Your Home
Take down curtains, drapes, blinds, and shutters. It’s also recommended that you take down wall decorations/paintings as the work may jostle and displace them.
While your window pro will do the best they can to be neat, it’s still a good idea to put down tarp or drop cloth over the floor and the furniture.
If you won’t be home at the time of your window installation, make arrangements with your window pro so they can access and complete the job.
Always have quotes written up front and double-check the paperwork so your window pro can correct any errors right away.
Your window pro should also provide you with a receipt and a copy of your warranty at the end of your service.
