How to Plan for Your Window Installation

Window replacement is a process that requires a good deal of planning. First, you need to determine why window installation is necessary. Do you desire aesthetics, improvements in energy efficiency or home value, or protection from ultraviolet rays? You can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs with weathertight windows.

Plan For Install

But getting there is the challenge and there’s much to know before the window installers arrive.

Decide on the Best Windows to Install

Modern homes use double-hung, sliding, casement and awning, bay and bow, and garden windows, or a combination thereof. Each has its unique advantages and suits particular environments. New construction windows are more often used in newly built homes but can be used during a remodel; they require new frames and removal of existing materials. Instead of window repair, you may also choose replacement windows designed to accommodate the same space. These retrofits don’t require tearing out existing walls or removing exterior materials.

Choose an Installation Date

The best time to schedule installation, of course, is when your windows are worn or damaged beyond repair. If you’re not sure, check for drafts and gaps in material during winter. Materials tend to contract in colder temperatures, so it might be easier to find issues.

It’s also easier to schedule an installation date in winter. Window companies tend to be more flexible during this time and setting a spring or summer date then can be easier as well. Believe it or not, windows can be installed any time of the year. Window World of Boston offers a cold weather one-for-one installation method that minimizes heat loss. Windows are replaced one at a time, so your home is less affected by the elements.

Determine Who Will Install Your Windows

A reputable installer won’t only help find the best windows for your home. They will also answer all your questions, from how long installation will take to how the weather will affect the job, to how your furniture, belongings, and home will be protected during window installation. Don’t forget to read online reviews, ask friends and neighbors, and inquire about deals and warranties before signing any contract.

Prepare Your Home

The day window installers come to your home, you want everything in order to make their job easier. You will also want to complete a few tasks ahead of time. These include:

  • Removing curtains, blinds, or hardware
  • Moving furniture away from windows for better access
  • Moving decorative items away from windows
  • Using drop cloths to protect your home from dust and debris
  • Cutting back tree branches or shrubs near your windows
  • Disconnecting security systems with window sensors
  • Cleaning around your old windows before replacing them

When scheduling an installation date, determine whether you will need to be home at the time. Address other issues such as access to electrical outlets and protecting your pets during installation. Also, find out if the company discards of your old windows or cleans your interior and exterior if debris falls. You want to know everything that’s included in the price before any work is started.
