You’ve picked out the new windows you want to install in your home. You’ve scheduled the day and time when your window installers are going to come and put your replacement windows in Goshen, IN into place. You’ve even prepared your home for your window installation by moving things away from the inside and outside of your old windows. All that’s left to do is to sit back and wait for your window installers to get the job done, right? Er, almost.
In addition to doing everything we just mentioned, you may also want to approach your window installers on window replacement day and ask them a few basic questions. It’ll help to get you and your installers on the same page and ensure there aren’t any miscommunications between you and your window replacement company. Here are 5 questions you should ask your installers when they arrive at your home on window replacement day.
1. “How long is my window replacement project going to take?”
In most cases, a window replacement company will let you know how long it’s going to take them to install Goshen, IN windows in your home ahead of time. But in some instances, that timetable could change for any number of reasons. Therefore, it’s important for you to double-check with your window installers. They can tell you approximately how long they expect it to take to install all the new windows in your home.
2. “Is there anything I can do to help move the process along?”
You may have already done some things around your house to help window installers get started on your home right away. But there might be some additional work that you can take on to ensure your window installation goes smoothly. For example, window installers might appreciate you moving some furniture around or putting your dogs away so that they can bring your new windows into your home in a hurry. You, of course, don’t have to do anything if you aren’t able to or don’t want to, but it could make it easier for your installers to do their job in a shorter amount of time.
3. “Do you anticipate any potential problems with my window replacement job?”
When window installers get to your home, they may notice any number of things that you could affect your window replacement project. A bad weather forecast or a window that might be difficult to install could throw your project off course. While window installers aren’t always able to pinpoint potential problems, they may be able to give you an idea of some things that could have an impact on your window replacement job when they show up at your house.
4. “Is the current weather going to impact window replacement at all?”
The weather outside might seem just fine to you, but to your window installers, it could present some unique challenges. For instance, very warm temperatures can cause issues during the window installation process. You’ll obviously know that the weather is going to impact window replacement if it’s raining or snowing. But you might not know that very hot or cold temperatures could slow a window replacement job down. Don’t be afraid to ask if the weather is right for window installation.
5. “Can you please let me know if you anticipate delays at any point?”
Many window installers will wait until the last minute to let homeowners know that their window installation job might be delayed. Reason being, they don’t want to inconvenience a homeowner unless they really have to. If you would like to know about possible delays as soon as possible, bring it up to your installers. It’ll make them more comfortable about coming to you to talk about a delay that they foresee in your near future.
