So, you’ve decided that you need to replace your windows, and maybe you even picked out the exact type and style of your replacement windows, but what comes next? Many homeowners are unsure how to make a proper window installation go as smoothly as possible. After all, installation is very important in maximizing the energy efficiency of your new replacement windows. From reducing leaks and drafts to keeping outside dirt and air from finding its way in your home, a proper installation is just as important as the window itself. Here are seven things to expect during your window replacement, and what you can do to prepare your home.
1. Scheduling Your Window Replacement Project
At Clarity Windows & Doors, we work with you to prepare the perfect time to complete your window replacement project. Fall and winter window replacement can present its own challenges, but we’re Dallas-Fort Worth’s experts in the installation process, so don’t worry if the weather is getting a little wetter and chillier. Our install team does an amazing job working in all elements of weather while protecting your house.
2. Be Home for the Installation’s Beginning and End
No one understands the busy work life quite like us, which is why we don’t require the homeowner to be home for the entire installation process. Just be home when the installation begins and ends, and we can handle the rest. However, we know that your home is your most important investment and peace of mind goes a long way. If you’re home, we can ask any necessary questions during the window replacement installation, and of course, you’re free to ask the installers any questions as they’re working. Every home is different, and although we’ve worked in hundreds of them over 20 years, it helps to ensure a smooth and fast install. At the end of the installation, we also go over how to operate your windows and how to properly care for them, so you can make the most out of your new investment.
3. Prepare Your Home
Depending on your home, we may recommend taking a few precautions before we arrive. A little prep can go a long way and help prevent any breakages from happening to your valuables. If you have items on shelves or furniture directly beneath windows, we suggest taking a few moments and move it off to the side. If you need some help, our installers can help you move anything, or we can let you know if your furniture or other items will be safe throughout the install. Don’t worry about uprooting your garden or any bushes outside. We can work around that!
4. Safety First
Safety is our utmost priority, so we recommend having your pets secured away and any children supervised during your installation window. No matter what, we’ll take every precaution to ensure the safety of your family and your home.
5. We Always Inspect Our Work
Even though we can almost always get the job done in a timely manner, you’ll never see us speeding off to another install. Our expert craftsmen will inspect the job before leaving and make sure that they leave the house and yard as clean as when they arrived. We also double-check the operation of your windows so that when the time comes for you to let some fresh air in your home, you won’t find yourself with a window that doesn’t open. These small details add up, and it’s our attention to details that sets us apart.
6. Cleanup Included
We aren’t an installer that leaves your old windows or dirt and dust tracked all throughout your home. We understand how important your home is and everything you own, so we treat every customer’s home as if it’s our own. Every window installation comes complete with a thorough cleanup. We’ll clean where we installed the windows, dispose of your old windows, and ensure that your home is as clean as before we showed up. That’s just part of the Clarity difference.
7. Follow Up
As we’ve said before, replacing your windows is an important investment, and it’s one of the best ways to reduce your energy consumption. We want you to be 100% satisfied with your windows, so we always follow up with you after the install to make sure everything is perfect. If you have any questions or concerns, let us know and we’ll help you fix it. We stand by our commitment to provide you with the best customer service, which is why we offer one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry.
