7 Things People Forget to Do Before Window Replacement Installation Day

You did all the planning to get replacement windows but what about when installation day comes? People often overlook some minor details before window replacement installation day. Here are some of our top tips at Marvin Replacement to help your installation day go smoothly. 

Disable Security Systems 

A window installation crew will have to go in and out of your house several times during installation so don’t forget to disable your security alarm system.  

Remove Window Treatments 

It makes sense to remove window treatments before installation day but it can easily get overlooked during other preparation leading up to the window install. 

Move Fragile Objects 

Accidents, although rare, can happen and it’s a good idea to remove any fragile objects that might be in the path you clear for the crew to get to the windows.  

Clear a Path to the Windows 

You’ll want to clear a path for the crew to get to your windows. It’s likely they’ll use it multiple times during an install so make sure it’s wide enough for them to pass through. 

Clear a Path to the House 

It’s important to clear a path to your house from the outside, too. Remove any potential obstacles and keep the path clear from any items that could cause someone to trip. 

Talk about Crew Accommodations  

Installation times can vary and you’ll have a good idea of how long it will take before the installation crew arrives, but you’ll want to talk with your project manager about anything the crew might need. You shouldn’t feel like you need to provide refreshments or let crews use your bathroom.

Talk to Neighbors About Installation Times 

Window replacement does generate some noise so it’s a good idea to talk with your neighbors ahead of time to let them know when the installation crew will arrive. Neighbors can have different work schedules and some don’t like surprises.  

Our installation teams can start as early as 8 or 9 a.m. for morning installations and afternoon installs can typically start around noon to 1 p.m.
