A window replacement project looks incredibly straightforward on paper, but like most home upgrades, it will take some careful preparation. This means taking proactive measures that can make the process go on smoothly. The big question, however, is whether you have to leave your home temporarily to make it so. Hunterdon Roofing, Siding and Window Company, the premier exterior renovations company in the area, answers this here.
The Short Answer is ‘No’
Having all your windows replaced in your home is not only costly but highly invasive, as well. The project will affect every area inside your home, so you should consider staying put while the work is going on. This way, you’re readily available in case there’s an important decision to be made. Plus, you’ll be able to keep an eye out for possible issues that might cause damage to your home, or lead to unnecessary delays.
But if you’ve decided to stay at home during your window replacement, you’ll need to do a few things. For instance:
1. Keep valuables locked. Small items of value should be kept somewhere safe in the meantime. While it’s good to give people the benefit of the doubt, your security should still be top of the list when you have strangers going to and fro your home. Better safe than sorry, right?
2. Make sure the area around your windows is clear. Before the installers arrive, make sure any items on the window sill–plants, photos, and knick-knacks–are cleared away. You should also take downlight fixtures, framed art, and hanging plants from the walls near the windows. Larger items, such as furniture, should be placed elsewhere in the room (but not where it can’t hamper access to your windows.
3. Be on the same page with your window contractor about keeping the mess in your home to a minimum. The fact is that just like a roof replacement, window installation can be a messy process. You’ll want to make sure your home looks the same way it did prior to the work.
