Things to take care of before window installation

Posted on

If you have been living in the same house for a long time and you think that the time has come for your windows to be replaced, then there are a few things that you should know. Window installation in London is not as easy as it seems. It is a very technical process and requires a lot of preparation if you want the project to go off without a hitch. No matter whether you are going to be the one that handles the installation or it is a professional, these pointers will come in handy for everyone:

  • When you start the project, you shouldn’t just remove all the windows at once. This is because it takes a lot of time to replace the windows with the new ones so the window space will be left open if you remove all the old windows. You should start one by one, taking one window apart, replacing and installing it with new one and then move on to the next one.
  • Another thing to keep in mind is that you should clean out all the space before removing and replacing the window. For example, if you have lined the windows with curtains, then remove them first. Even if there is furniture or any other breakable item nearby, you should clear the area of those things as well. Before you take off the window, you should be absolutely sure that there is nothing near to the frame of the window. It would not only keep your possessions safe but will promise an easy installation as well.
  • Make sure that you have removed all the furnishings from the rooms as well. This will give you a clear path to work and you will easily find all your equipment and tools. The dust and dirt from the windows will not be able to settle on your sofas and tables and hence you will be able to keep them clean. If there are some décor pieces that are very delicate, then you should store them in safer places and then place them back after the entire project is done. Close off the places where you have transferred your furniture and other things so they can stay secure.
  • You should also keep in mind that a window installation process involves a lot of dust flying all around. Therefore, if a member of your family is allergic to dust, then you should send them away to avoid any allergic reactions. Also cover the floors and other surfaces to make sure that they don’t get dirty during the replacement and installation.
  • Also, make sure that while the project is doing on, there are no kids or pets in the area. So much equipment is used that can be harmful if not handled with care. Therefore, children should not be anywhere near that space.
  • Before you replace the windows, make sure that you have read on all the rules and regulations regarding the subject. If you are hiring a company to do the job for you, make sure that you have the paperwork ready and have gone through everything beforehand.
