How to Prepare Your Home For New Windows & Doors Installation?

Installing new windows or doors is very exciting and can completely transform the look of your home. The installation process, however, can be a bit stressful.

The time it takes to install new windows or doors can vary but you can usually expect the process to take up to three days. 

But there are things that you can do to speed up the installation process whilst making sure it goes smoothly and without obstacles. 

In this article, we take a closer look at how you should prepare for your window or door installation to make the installation process that bit easier. 

Preparing for a window and door installation

Moving furniture 

One thing that is bound to slow down the installation process is if the installers do not have easy access to the area where the window or door will be installed. By clearing a room of big furniture or anything that will obstruct the process ahead of time you are able to make the job of the installer much easier and speed up the process. 

Covering up 

It is a well known fact the installation of a new window or door isn’t a tidy process so it is important to cover up any furniture or areas you want protecting from excess dust and dirt. You can use heavy sheets or dirt sheets to cover up the furniture and flooring which will not only save you from a lot of hoovering and sweeping but will protect your valuable furniture which can’t easily be moved too. 

Providing accessible parking

This might sound silly but if you drive you know how difficult it can be to find parking space, especially in residential areas. So by providing accessible parking for the installers you can save considerable time which could be used to carry out the installation instead. 

Not only that, the installation will require a lot of equipment so it is important that you consider making outside space for this too. 

By following these steps, you can take a lot of time and stress out of the installation process and instead look forward to having beautiful, new windows and doors.
