So, you’ve decided to spruce up your home by replacing those old, drafty windows. You’ve done your research, selected the perfect window style, and scheduled the installation. But now you might be wondering what preparations, if any, are required before our team arrives.
Rest assured, we’ve got you covered right here with all the essential information you need to know!
Ensure there is adequate space around the window
Creating an accessible space around the window area is essential for our installation team to work efficiently and safely. Ideally, having about a meter of clear space around the window will help the installation process, so if possible, make sure you move any furniture out of the way beforehand. This clearance allows our professionals to manoeuvre comfortably, ensuring seamless and precise fitting without any hindrances.
You don’t need to empty the room
One common query we receive is whether the room needs to be emptied before the installation. You can breathe a sigh of relief because the good news is, you won’t need to remove all of your furniture or belongings. Our skilled technicians are adept at working around your furniture without causing any damage or disruption – although as mentioned in the previous point, if you can make sure we can access the area easily it is very helpful.
Dust sheets for extra protection
Whilst you won’t need to completely remove your furniture from the room, we do recommend using dust sheets or covers to protect any items near the window area. We do our upmost to make sure the installation process is as tidy as possible, but these sheets do act as an added layer of precaution against dust or debris that may be generated during the installation process.
What about the waste?
Post-installation, we understand the importance of a tidy finish. That’s why our team takes care of the debris and waste generated during the fitting process. We’ll efficiently collect and dispose of any rubbish, giving you the peace of mind that your space will be left clean and tidy.
Recycling UPVC Windows
In line with our commitment to sustainability, we prioritise recycling UPVC windows. UPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) windows are recyclable, and we have established partnerships with recycling companies dedicated to handling these materials responsibly. By entrusting us with your old windows, you contribute to our efforts in environmental conservation, and save yourself the headache of having to dispose of your old windows yourself.
What about pets?
Whilst we love to say hello to a friendly pooch or cat, please make sure that any pets are removed from the room and kept away whilst we’re installing your windows. This is to ensure that our team aren’t put at risk of tripping with smaller animals underfoot, as well as to keep your four-legged friends safe from any hazards.
While you don’t need to make extensive preparations, here is a little checklist to tick off before we arrive!
- Clear the immediate area around the window for easy access.
- Cover or protect any fragile or sensitive items near the window.
- Make sure your pets are safely put away and can’t access the area.
- Communicate any specific concerns or requirements with our team beforehand.
Have specific concerns that aren’t covered here?
If you have specific concerns or requests regarding the installation process, don’t hesitate to discuss them with the installation team beforehand. Whether it’s about protecting fragile plants outside the window or keeping your pets away from the work area, communication is key to ensuring a successful installation while addressing your unique needs.
We pride ourselves on a friendly yet professional approach. Our goal is to make the window fitting process as hassle-free as possible for our customers. From the initial consultation to the final installation, our experienced team ensures a seamless experience, addressing any concerns you may have along the way.
