When you get replacement windows in Irvine, CA, you likely asked a lot of questions. It makes sense, especially if you haven’t gone through the process before (and most homeowners haven’t). After you choose the windows you want and you are confident enough to move forward and order them, the last thing you have to face is the installation. One thing you want to make sure of is that you have professionals installing the windows. Check into experience, background, reputation, and training so you know your windows will go in properly and perform as promised. But even if you trust the professionals you’ve chosen, you will still have questions to ask before, during, and after the installation. Here are some such questions:
Before—What Should I Prepare?
You’ll want your home to be ready for the installers when they arrive so when they get there, they can start right in on the work. They will likely give you a list of things to get ready, but if not, ask! They will want you to remove the pictures from walls with windows and take the window coverings down. It’s also wise to move furniture away from windows and perhaps make sure outlets are accessible.
During—Where Do You Want To Start?
There’s really no right or wrong place to start. Perhaps the installer will want to start from the top of your house and work down. Maybe they’ll go the opposite way. Or maybe they’ll just go in the order that the windows are on the truck they’ve brought. It’s nice for you to know how they will be working so you can stay out of the way in other areas of the house, doing things you have saved up to do on this day.
After—How Can I Care For My Windows?
Once the windows are installed, the installers should take you around the house and show you all of the windows. You can open and close them and ask any questions you have about maintenance. If you have vinyl windows, you don’t have to do much. But they might recommend oiling tracks or washing the windows down outside from time to time. Perhaps they will have ideas on how to keep the glass clean and other tips. You have professionals in your home so anything you want to know now’s the time to ask.
