When it comes to purchasing and installing replacement windows in their homes, many property owners put this task off for as long as possible, thinking that it is will be too much hassle. However, doing the right preparation beforehand can save a significant amount of hassle, especially when choosing the right window companies to work with. These tips can help make the process of window replacement as pleasant as possible.
#1 – Prepare for the Mess
Windows replacement includes scraping and removing existing paint and glue, sanding down the area where the windows will be installed, installing additional pieces of drywall in cases where the new windows are going to be a different size to the old ones or even performing brick laying if required. As a result, it is recommended that all furniture and other valuable items be moved out of the immediate area, and that which cannot be moved should be covered with drop cloths or large sheets of painter's plastic to protect it from dust, paint spills and other forms of damage. Doing so will simplify the cleanup process after the job is done as well. Although fitting replacement windows can be a messy job, professional window installers will ensure that every effort is made to minimize the amount of dust that enters your home throughout the process.
#2 – Alter your Schedule Accordingly
Window companies will require as much easy access as possible to the part(s) of your property where replacement windows are going to be installed. As a result, it's a good idea to keep foot traffic to a minimum while they are working. If at all possible, try to find alternative accommodation for yourself, your family and pets (if applicable) so that the window replacement can be done quickly and properly. Being continually disturbed by people and pets that are passing through the working area will not only delay the completion date of a project; serious injuries could occur as well. If it is not possible to relocate the family elsewhere while a home's windows are being replaced, it can be a good idea to sit down with the installer and set up a schedule whereby the parts of the house that are being worked on can be cordoned off until the job is complete.
#3 – Don't be Afraid to Shop Around
Nowadays, there are numerous window companies that are able to perform an excellent job - all of who will charge different prices. Although it can be a good idea to shop around if a particular installer's estimate seems excessively high, it is not always recommended to choose a company 'because they are the cheapest.'

We just wanted to write to say thanks because the window quality is great and your helpful craftsman and professional installers made the entire experience wonderful. We only wish we could have this experience with all of our renovation projects.
We recently moved to our new house and needed to do some repairs and renovations. Your company was recommended by our very pleased friends. The windows look amazing and the installation job Richard did was first class.
It’s not everyday that I take the time to email a contractor… but my wife insisted! You guys did a great job and you kept it quick and quiet. We’ve got a newborn who sleeps often and your man did a good job not waking her up. Cheers.
We had done our share of research before finally deciding to go with your company and we must say that EuroSeal really had the greatest value. Guess we can chalk it up to working with a manufacturer.
It is our pleasure to say thanks for a great job done by your company. Luke and his colleague did a lovely job and they were very well mannered. It was a pleasure having them around.
We especially appreciated the help of your craftsman in choosing the appropriate style and colour for our first home. In the end, the windows look beautiful and I’m extremely happy with how easy they are to clean.
We damaged one of the external hinges a month ago, and your company’s prompt and efficient handling of the service call was impressive! We appreciate how quickly your company sent over a representative to fix the problem.
