internal door installation

Getting new doors installed in your home is an exciting time - not only can it significantly enhance the aesthetics of your home, but can also improve energy efficiency and general security of your property. In order to make the process of installation as hassle-free as possible, we’ve outlined what you can do as a customer to help us at Glazing Hub provide the very best service on the day of installation.

1. Remove any obstructions

If you have any pieces of furniture or decorative ornaments within the immediate area of your doorways, these might get in the way of your installers working safely and efficiently. Our advice to you would be to put them to one side to ensure a clutter-free and spacious working environment.

2. Protect your home

Like any work that’s undertaken in the home, there’s always dust and mess left behind, no matter how careful your installation team is! In order to protect your furnishings and floors, we recommend you place protective sheets over any surfaces you want to keep free of potential damage and disorder. This way, you can simply fold them up when the work has been completed, and you’re not left with hours of cleaning to do after!

3. Ensure accessibility

Making sure your installation team can easily make their way through your home to their various points of focus will help make the installation process efficient and safe on the day. Any obstructions to accessing various areas of your property might just make the overall process more time-consuming, so it’s best to clear everything out of the way before your door fitters arrive!

4. Remove any blinds or curtains

If you haven’t already, make sure that you’ve removed any blinds and curtains attached to your doorways. This will ensure you can simply sit back and relax while the professionals get their work done.
