How to Minimize the Mess During a Window Replacement

Window installation is a big investment for a lot of homeowners. Some may even find it an intimidating process and wonder, is my house going to be a wreck during the window replacement? Fortunately, you do not have to do much if you hire an expert windows and doors contractor. But there are still tips that can help you minimize the mess while the pros are working on your home improvement project.

Before the Installation 

Our technicians will perform a walkthrough with you to ensure that all concerns are communicated before the installation day arrives, allowing the actual event to be carried out smoothly and efficiently.

Some helpful tips that we usually suggest include taking pictures of the walls and moving furniture at least four to six away from the windows being replaced. It is also recommended to secure interior belongings that might vibrate loose in the process, such as wine glasses. Lastly, do not forget to confine your pets to ensure their safety.

During the Installation

Clear out all pathways leading to areas where windows are being replaced. This is to reduce slip or trip hazards. Often, the window installers will begin by laying down mats, drop cloths and runners to protect the involved areas around the home. They will also build a makeshift shelter outside if there is inclement weather in order to protect the installation site. The windows and French doors installers will also bring trash bins and vacuums to minimize the garbage on site. This also makes for easy clean-up.

After the Installation

Our reliable window installers will make sure that everything is in order before leaving your home. An inspector may do a final walkthrough to finalize all concerns and ensure that there are no remaining issues that need to be addressed. Even the highest quality products will underperform if not installed correctly. This is the reason we follow strict installation procedures and make sure that a thorough job is executed for the homeowner.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
