Compare and Contrast
Sometimes, you just have to see it in person first to decide on making such a big investment in your home. At Clarity, we recently opened a brand-new showroom in Southlake to show off the quality of our work and walk you through all of your options, from window frames and types to custom-made window solutions for your home.
As you walk through our showroom, you can get a good look at the windows you want for your home, and we’re always there to help answer any questions you have about energy savings and maintenance to make the most out of your replacement windows. And with countless options pre-framed, you can envision how your home will look with brand-new windows.
Can’t make it in person to our showroom? No problem. We offer free in-home consultations so we can come to you. You can expect us to still walk you through all of your options and give you a FREE estimate on the work required. Even if you’re not ready to make a purchase today, we can let you know the remaining lifespan to expect from your windows and if the smartest move is for you to go ahead and prepare your home for replacement windows.
Clear the Area
Prep for replacement windows is easy. After choosing replacement windows (with our help, of course), we’ll walk you through the scheduling and installation process so you know what to expect. First, to make sure the replacement window install goes as smoothly as possible, you should clear the area beneath the windows both inside and outside. We always take steps to ensure we don’t damage your belongings, but this will help us cut down on the installation time and help you take advantage of your energy-efficient windows that much faster.
If there are any trees or shrubs blocking the window from the outside, we’d recommend performing some quick maintenance to ensure your new windows aren’t damaged in the installation process.
Inside your home, any furniture just needs to be moved aside to provide our installers enough space to work. No need to clear out all of your home’s décor, but a few quick precautions will help us get in and out of your home quickly so you can enjoy the comfort of brand-new windows as soon as possible.
Worried about a mess to clean up? Don’t be. We’ll help you put your belongings back the way they were before, and we’ll even make sure we didn’t leave behind a mess or any material from the install.
Prep Your Windows
Any blinds, drapes, or curtains should be removed before the installation. Just like our previous tip, it will help us get in and out of your home quickly so you can enjoy leak-free windows and start saving on energy costs. Any paintings or wall hangings near the windows should also be removed just as a precaution.
Accessibility is Everything
To ensure a fast and trouble-free install, it’s important to turn off any alarms or window sensors that could be triggered during the window replacement project. Clearing a path to and from the windows can also help prevent any accidents in your home.
We do require you to be home at the beginning and end of the install, but we understand that everyone is busy and you may not be able to stay home the entire time. We are always transparent about the installation window and are committed to quality service, so if anything comes up, you can make it back before the installation is complete and we’ll walk you through everything from how to operate your new windows to proper window maintenance.
Planning ahead can prevent a lot of headaches when it comes to getting new windows installed. If you still need to walk through your options or have questions about the best windows for your home, Clarity is here to help you.
