Installing replacement windows is a project you only have to tackle perhaps once in your home’s lifetime, which is why you should make the most of it. The good news is you can expect the process to be quick and efficient when you hire a reputable expert like Homecraft®, Inc. Still, it pays to know what to expect throughout the process so you can prepare appropriately.
Ask your local building department if your project requires a permit. This may be the case if you need to modify your window openings to fit in a window of a different style or size. Having the necessary permits ensures the work complies with your area’s standards.
While installing wood or vinyl windows is straightforward, it will involve a bit of mess and noise. Make sure all your belongings are safe throughout your project. You also have to move your lamps, furniture, curtains, potted plants and other obstacles so your window installer can easily access the work area. Lastly, put drop cloths on your floor and furnishings to protect them from debris. Ask your contractor how they will observe protective measures to minimize the clutter and prevent property damage.
While you’ll certainly aim to finish your project without a hitch, it’s still best to prepare for the unexpected. Once your window is removed, your contractor might notice underlying issues that can add to your overall expenses. In addition, inclement weather conditions can cause delays. Furthermore, depending on the number of windows being replaced, expect a two- or three-day timeframe to finish your project.
