What To Ask Installers On Replacement Window Installation Day


Once you’ve chosen all the details on your replacement windows in Truckee, CA, you’re almost home free. Almost. You still have to go through the installation process. The first part of that is simply setting up a day and time for the process and arranging to be home so you can let installers in. You might talk to the installers by phone and ask a few questions, like how you can prepare before they arrive. But there are things they can tell you once they arrive on the day of the installation as well. Here are a few things you might want to ask.

How Long Will Certain Rooms Take?

If you are going to be home during the installation, there are things you can do in one room while the installers work in another room. But it’s nice for you to know how long you have in each space before the installers need to get in there. You don’t want to spread files all over the office only to have the installers interrupt for the windows. Knowing about how long each room takes can help you budget your time in other spaces as the installers work their way through the house.

How Can I Help Move Things Along?

You have likely already done things like take pictures down, removed windows treatments, and moved furniture, but there might be other things you can do as well. The installers might ask for access to electricity, which might mean extension cords in some areas. You can help by keeping pets out from underfoot and children occupied as well. The things you can do vary based on your situation and your home.

Can You Let Me Know About Delays?

This should be a no brainer for installers, but it’s a good thing to mention, just in case. If the installers run across anything that’s going to put them behind schedule, they should let you know. If a window, for example, shows rot and that has moved into the structure and needs to be shored up before a new window can go in, that could cause a delay. Installers never really know what they are going to run into when they start the project. But as they move through the home, they can let you know if they encounter anything odd.

When you are getting replacement windows in Truckee, CA, seeing installation in progress can be very exciting. You know you are almost there, and your project will be completed soon. You can then enjoy the benefits the new windows will surely bring to your home.
