Read on to learn tips on how to prepare your home for window replacement from HomeRite Windows and Doors.

Professional Installation Is The Key

Regardless of the type of material your new windows are made of, a replacement window can never function to its best ability without proper installation. That is why as industry professionals, we highly recommend you rely on an experienced window company to get the job done successfully and efficiently. At HomeRite Windows and Doors, our Jacksonville window installers are the best in the industry – licensed and insured with years of experience working right here in Northeast Florida. We strictly follow Florida Building Code when installing new windows and doors.

Clean Your Yard Near The Window

During window installation, your installer will need clear access to your window from both inside and outside your home. It is important that the space around the window is free from obstructions or hazards to minimize any delay during the window replacement process. By rule of thumb, your installers will probably need about 2 feet of space in front of each window to get their work done successfully and efficiently. Before the date of your window replacement, be sure to remove any excess sticks, leaves and other debris that may be surrounding the area.

Eliminate Inside Clutter

You can also expect your installers to need access to your windows from inside your home as well. Therefore, ensuring the walking paths to your windows are clear will help the installation process move as smoothly as possible. Pull furniture away from under the window and remove any shades, blinds, or curtains. If you have security alarms on an existing window, those will also need to be removed and placed back on the new window frame after installation.

Secure Your Pets

Window replacement can take anywhere from a few hours to multiple days, depending on the number of windows you’re having installed. Our crews may be walking in and out of the house multiple times and doors may be left open for an extended amount of time. For the safety of our installation crew and your pet, we request that all pets are secured throughout the installation process. Even though your animals might be curious, it is best to ensure their safety by putting them into a different room during the installation.
