If you have chosen your windows and scheduled an installation time for the Hidden Valley, CA window replacement to take place, hold tight to the calendar. You’re going to need a little bit of time to put your house in order before the installation takes place. As you schedule the installer to come with your new windows, give yourself a few hours before they arrive (or the weekend before) to get everything set up in the best possible manner. The installation will go faster and smoother if you take a look at this checklist and mark the to-dos off before the windows arrive
Remove Pictures From The Walls
Any wall that has a window on it is vulnerable to quite a bit of action. The installers move with care, but taking a window out and putting a new one in is going to jar any wall. Take the pictures or artwork off any wall that has a window on it and store them away with care.
Remove Window Coverings
Installers need uninhibited access to your windows and that means getting the window coverings out of the way. If you have curtains, now is a good time to remove them, clean them, and then replace them once the windows are in. You could also use this time to get new window coverings to accent the new windows that are about to go in.
Move Furniture Away From Windows
If you have a couch in front of the windows or a bed up against that wall, move those things away from the windows while they go in. The installers will need a wide berth around the windows to do their job in the easiest possible manner.
Clear A Walkway
Installers will also need to get windows in and out of your home and to the spot where they need to be installed. If you have a table in the entryway that makes things tight, move it to another room and pick up rugs and things installers might trip over. Get the walkway from the door to the rooms that need windows cleared up and ready to go.
Create A Safe Haven For Pets
Pets get awfully scared by the noise and the new people milling around the house. If you can have your pet stay at a friends for a night or two while the window replacement installation takes place, that might be best. Otherwise, prepare a spot for them in the laundry room, a bathroom, or somewhere else safe without windows that will keep them sequestered and out of the way during the process.
