You’ve purchased your new impact windows and scheduled an appointment with The Window Guys, so you’re all set! Actually, that’s not the case. There are actually a few steps involved in ensuring that your home is prepared for our installation team during their visit. If your impact window installation appointment is coming up soon, you should consider the following steps to ensuring a perfect installation.

Trim Landscaping

Landscaping directly in front of your windows can be an immediate barrier to the window installation team getting your home’s impact windows placed. While you don’t have to fully remove them, you will need to clear space so that they can navigate through towards your window sill. Things like bushes, trees, and shrubs will need to be trimmed and cleared.

Clean Inside & Out

Anything directly inside and outside of the window space should be cleared out. Things like planters, wall art, exterior and interior furniture, tables, etc will need to be removed from the general area of your windows, as our team will be in and around the area very frequently. That way, you can rest assured knowing that our team won’t cause an accident with some of your belongings, as careful and experienced as they are.

Cover Furniture

Placing blankets or sheets over your furniture will keep them safe from any dust or debris that may be produced from the installation. Furniture should be about four-six feet away from your windows to ensure they’ll be safe.

Remove Window Covers

Window covers such as blinds and drapes will need to be momentarily removed, as they will also get in the way of the installation and will slow down the process.
Cover Floors

Deactivate Alarms

Our installation teams will be in and out of your home, as well as constantly working on your existing windows. As such, leaving your alarms active will have them beeping nonstop. For the sake of the installation, please disable all alarms until our team’s work is complete.

Create Workspace

Our window installation team will need to work frequently on your windows, making adjustments as needed. If possible, setting up a small workspace for our team will be a tremendous help, as they’re able to set up their equipment and get to work in an efficient and organized manner.

Keep Kids and Pets Away

For the safety of everyone involved, including you and your loved ones we recommend that during an installation period access to work areas be restricted. If there is something specific needing attention while this process goes on then just let us know so it can get done right away for all parties involved!

With these steps in place, you’re ready for your impact window installation! Have a question about preparing for an impact window installation that you don’t see listed above? No problem! Contact the Window Guys online or give us a call at (561) 598-6295.
