So you’ve decided to update your home’s windows or doors. Next, you’ve chosen the style that you want and scheduled the home installation. What comes next? It’s time to start prepping your home for the installation! Whether you’re replacing your old windows with better quality energy-efficient windows or updating to a stylish new entry door, follow these installation prep tips to make the process go more smoothly:
Move Your Home Furniture Out Of The Way Of A Window
Make your home improvement contractors’ life easier by moving furniture away from the space where there will be work done. Have a couch in front of the window? Move it over to the other side of the room for the duration of the home installation to clear the work area.
Don’t forget about the space outdoors! If you have any furniture near an entry or patio door, move it to the other side of your porch or deck or clear it off completely during the installation.
Take Down Any Window Blinds Or Curtains
Are the contractors installing a window? Don’t forget about the window treatments! Take down any blinds or curtains that will get in the way while your windows are being replaced. This even includes any artwork or picture frames hanging on the walls as well! Our contractors make the effort to be extremely careful, but you don’t want to risk your personal items being damaged in the process.

Lay Down Drop cloths Around Installation Area
Although most contractors will do their best to leave your home as clean as they arrived by putting down drop cloths in the work areas, you could be extra cautious by laying down your own first.
Note: If our installers have to move any furniture or window and door treatments, you will be charged an additional $10.00 per opening. If they must disassemble any items to move them from the area, you will be charged $10.00 for every item that they have to reassemble. We are not responsible for any damage that occurs to items that need to be cleared.
Preparing your home for your scheduled installation not only makes the process go much faster for our contractors, but it will give you greater peace of mind to know that your belongings are out of the way and put into a safe place.
