A Guide to a Mess-Free Window Replacement

Major home improvements, including window replacement, can give your home a total makeover, but dealing with the disarray can be exhausting. Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento shares a guide to help you stay on top of the mess in the work area and why hiring a professional contractor will benefit you.

Before Window Replacement

Proper preparation of the work area is crucial to minimizing clutter. Here’s what you need to do before getting your replacement windows installed:

  • Clear the windows of any furniture and curtains. You can also shut down nearby vents if necessary.

  • Turn off HVAC units for the safety and convenience of installers.

  • Protect furniture and fragile items from dust and debris by covering them with drop cloths or plastic sheets.

  • Share any concerns or requests with the window replacement team to ensure they focus on your priorities.

  • Assess which pathways or halls the workers will most likely use. Clear them for the installers so they can have ample space to move around quickly and more efficiently.

During and After Window Replacement

Keeping the clutter to a minimum even while the job is being completed will minimize the clean-up afterward. While most contractors may handle the clean-up after a window replacement, here are a few things you may want to do:

  • Ensure that your contractor uses proper containment methods when installing new windows to minimize the spread of dust. This includes sealing off the work area and using specialized tools to prevent dust from circulating throughout your home.

  • Debris, such as glass, wood, and other materials, must be properly disposed of to ensure your space is not only clean but safe as well.
