Window replacement is a worthwhile home improvement project because it helps boost your home’s curb appeal, security and energy efficiency. If you are planning to tackle a window replacement project soon, you must know how to prepare for it. D&M Roofing is here to show you the best ways to prepare.
Step 1: Acquire Permits.
Check with your local building department if you need a permit for your window replacement. Permits are usually only for window installations that involve the removal of the frames and modifications in the window opening. Your project, however, won’t require one if your windows will fit within the existing frame and opening.
Step 2: Set a Time Line
Timeliness is something you should consider when preparing for your window replacement. Stick to a schedule as much as possible to ensure there won’t be any delays that might compromise the progress of the project. Setting a time line is easy if you are sure about your budget and have determined how many windows in your home need to be replaced.
Step 3: Prepare Your Home
You must make sure that there is enough space for the equipment and materials that the contractor will bring on installation day. Remove blinds, shades or curtains days before installers arrive. Clear the path leading to the windows that will be replaced, both inside and outside, so the contractors can work quickly and efficiently. If you have potted plants or other items that cannot be relocated temporarily, make sure to mark or cover them so the contractors know to be careful around that area. If you have young children or pets, make sure that they are away from the area at all times. Keeping them safe is a priority as the work area may have things that might injure them.
