The process of getting new windows installed in your home is an exciting time - not only can it significantly improve the aesthetics of your home, but can also improve the energy efficiency and the security of your property. In order to make the process of installation go as smoothly as possible, we’ve outlined what you can do as a customer to help your fitters provide the very best service on the day of installation.

Remove obstructions

It’s best to put any pieces of furniture or decorative ornaments within the immediate area of your windows to one side, as these might get in the way of your installers working safely and efficiently. We always advise customers to make sure their fitters are working in as spacious and clutter-free an environment as possible.

Protect your furnishings

There’ll always be 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 clean and kept. 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!

Make your home accessible

Making sure your installation team can easily make their way through your home to your windows will help make the installation process efficient and safe on the day. Any obstructions to accessing your window points could mean the installers are slowed down, so it’s best to make sure everything is sorted before your window fitters arrive!

Take down any blinds or curtains

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

Preparing your home for new window installation

Installing new windows in your home comes with a range of new benefits, from improved energy efficiency to changing up the aesthetic of your home. Any professional team of installers will carry out your work safely and efficiently, but taking the steps we’ve outlined above will help make sure your installation process goes as smoothly and quickly as possible. Then, all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy the results of your brand-new, stylish windows!
