As a homeowner in Orange, CA, what do you need to know about installation day for your new doors and windows? Some owners mistakenly think that they need to be available to assist with the project. But, you can sit back and relax because our team will handle all of the difficult work.
Even though we are overseeing the project, there are a few things that you need to know about installation day. Here is an overview of what you can expect when we come to your home to install the replacement windows and doors:
We strive to do as much of the work as possible before we come for the installation. By preparing for the installation day, we can minimize the amount of time that we need to spend in your home. So, we ensure that the windows and doors are manufactured and ready for installation before we arrive.
The planning phase of your home renovation is important so that we can prepare the right materials for your property. We will get your sign-off on the colors and materials. Then, everything will be manufactured. Finally, we will schedule an installation day to place everything in the right locations.
Preparing Your Home
As the homeowner, you should prepare by moving any obstacles out of the way of the windows. For example, it can be helpful to move furniture or anything that might be on the floor in front of the window. We need easy access from the doorways to the window locations. So, it is best to move these items to the opposite side of the room.
Don’t forget to move the outside obstacles as well. Lawn chairs, cars, and yard toys need to be cleared away to provide access to the external areas of the windows. Talk to our team if you are unable to move the furniture because it is too heavy. We can assist as needed to make it as easy as possible for your family.
When we arrive for the installation, we always prepare the rooms before the work commences. We will lay plastic and drop cloths to prevent damage to the floors and furniture.
Window Removal and Replacement
Next, it is time to remove the old windows and doors. These materials will be carried away on our truck, so you don’t need to worry about disposal. Once the space is open, then we can put the new windows and doors in place. We usually remove one window and replace that same window before moving onto the next one. This process minimizes the impact on the climate control in your home.
The final step is to clean up the mess after we are done. Our team strives to leave no trace behind. You will see that your home will be cleaner than when we arrived!
