Have you ever gotten window replacement in Encinitas, CA before? Most homeowners haven’t. In fact, most homeowners only do it once. So while you may not know much about it, you definitely want to get all of the details just right. When you work closely with your window company and get the windows of your dreams, you have a better shot at enjoying the outcome. But there’s still one thing that stands between you and those windows—the installation. Here are many of the questions homeowners have about that process:
Can I Do It Myself?
If you’re handy around the house and take on home improvement projects often, good for you. However, this isn’t a project you should take on. Window replacement takes a special set of skills and installers from window stores have them. Not only that, but they have been manufacturer trained and they have a history and experience with the exact windows you are getting. If you install windows yourself, sure you might save a little money, but odds are they might not be perfectly installed, and that can cos you later. Plus, you’ll void the manufacturer’s warranty so if there are any problems, it’s all on you. It’s definitely in your best interest to have professionals install your windows.
How Long Does Installation Take?
That depends on how many windows you are getting replaced, but in general, each window will take about half an hour. If you are getting a full house of windows done, it will likely be a day or two at the most. Count up your windows and do the math, but be sure to talk to the installation technicians about specific estimates so you know what to expect.
What Preparations Should I Make Before The Installation?
The installers take care of most of the details, but things go faster if you take a few steps of your own in advance. You should, for example, remove pictures and decorations from the walls with windows. Move the furniture away from windows as well. And clear paths from your door to the windows so installers can get through with ease. Also try to have a plug in available close by each set of windows for power tool usage.
