If you’re having impact windows installed in your home by Broward Impact or anyone other impact window installer, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare. These steps ensure the safety and success of the installation team, as well as the belongings within your home. By following these 6 key steps, you can ensure your home is properly secured for decades to come with some of the best windows available on the market. Before the impact window installation team arrives at your home, here are six key things you need to do first.
Remove Window Treatments
If you have blinds, curtains, or any other window treatments, you’ll need to remove them before your installation can begin. Be sure to label each window treatment so you know where it goes when it’s time to put them back up.
Patch Up Holes
If there are any holes or cracks in your walls near the windows, now is the time to patch them up. The last thing you want is for your new windows to be installed only to find out there are still holes in your walls!
Trim Trees & Shrubs
If you have any trees or shrubs that are close to the house, trim them back so they’re not touching the house. You don’t want leaves and branches scratching up your new windows!
Cover Furniture & Flooring
Impact windows can be quite dusty, so it’s best to cover up any furniture or flooring that you don’t want to get dirty. A tarp or drop cloth will do the trick!
Clear The Area Around The Windows
Once everything is covered up, clear out the area around the windows so the installers have plenty of room to work.
Choose A Date For Installation That Works For You
Once you’ve scheduled your installation, make sure to clear your calendar so that you’re available on that day. The installers will need access to the house for several hours, so you’ll need to be there to let them in and answer any questions they have.
Impact windows are a great way to protect your home from hurricanes and severe weather, but they can be a bit of a hassle to install. By following these five simple tips, you can prepare your home for installation and rest assured that your new windows will be properly taken care of!
