How to Prepare Your Home for a Window Replacement Installation

April 18, 2024

If you’ve decided to upgrade your home with Renewal by Andersen, congratulations on making a smart choice for energy efficiency, comfort and aesthetics. Preparing your home correctly ensures a smooth and successful window replacement installation. Here’s a guide to help you get ready for this exciting upgrade.

Clear the Work Areas

First and foremost, clear the areas around your windows inside and out. Remove any furniture, curtains, blinds or decorations that might obstruct window access. This includes wall hangings or plants that are near the windows. By creating ample space, the installation team will have more room to work efficiently.

Protect Your Belongings

Although our installation team takes great care during the window replacement process, it’s a good idea to safeguard your belongings. Cover nearby furniture and valuables with dust sheets or tarps to protect them from any debris that might arise during installation.

Communicate Access Points

Ensure the installation team knows which entry points they should use to access your home. Clear a pathway to these entry points and remove any obstacles like snow, ice or debris that could impede their access. This will facilitate a smoother and quicker installation process.

Inform Household Members

Let all members of your household know about the upcoming window replacement installation. Inform them about any changes to access points or potential disruptions during installation. This way, everyone can plan accordingly and ensure a stress-free experience.

Plan for Ventilation

During the installation process, there may be periods when your home is exposed to outdoor temperatures—plan for adequate ventilation to maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Consider adjusting your thermostat or opening windows in other home areas to regulate temperature and airflow.

Secure Pets

For the safety of your pets and our installation team, it’s best to keep pets away from the work areas during installation. Confine them in a safe and comfortable space where they won’t be disturbed by the activity.

Communicate Any Concerns

If you have any specific concerns or questions about the window replacement installation, please communicate them to our team. We address your needs and ensure the process meets your expectations.

These simple steps help prepare your home for a smooth and efficient window replacement installation. Our goal is to make this upgrade as convenient and hassle-free as possible, leaving you with beautiful new windows that enhance the comfort and value of your home.

Please contact our team if you have questions or need assistance with your upcoming project. We look forward to transforming your home with high-quality windows.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
