What Should You Expect from House Windows Installation?

If you're like most homeowners, once you purchase those shiny new windows, you want them installed immediately! But what should you expect from professional house windows installation? Here are a few tips to make life easier for you and your friendly window contractor.

Professional House Windows Installation Made Simple

These tips can help you understand what to expect from your window contractor, and give you ideas to make life easier on your contractor while they are working in your home:

  • The day before the window contractor is expected to arrive, touch base and ask for any specific instructions. They might want you to mark each window with the appropriate size, for instance, so they have an easier time figuring out which window goes in each space.
  • Move things away from the area around your windows. Push your furniture to the center of the room. Remove small items from windowsills, remove suncatchers, and clean away any dust as a courtesy to the contractor.
  • Make sure dropcloths are put down in your home underneath the window area. This prevents a major debris cleanup later.
  • Touch base with the window contractor when he or she arrives, and do a walk through the house. Your house windows installation might involve a crew, rather than one person. If that's the case, be sure to speak with the foreman.
  • Do not hover! These are professionals; they know what they are doing. However, if you leave the property, stay close to a phone so they can contact you at any time with questions or concerns.

Finally, make payments promptly for a job well done. If you see any problems, alert the window contractor before the workers leave the property so the issue can be resolved immediately.
