There are lots of things to decide about replacement windows in Las Vegas, NV. As you move through the process, you might not even think about the installation at first. That is the last step so it makes sense that you would put off those thoughts until later. But once you decide what material you want, what color, what hardware, and so on, you will start to wonder what the installation process is like. Before that day arrives, it’s good to ask questions about it so you know what to expect when it comes around. Here are some of the questions a lot of people have.
How Long Will The Install Take?
That will depend on how many windows you are getting, but most windows can be taken out and replaced in about half an hour. If you are changing a window, like a picture window to a bay or bow window, that will likely take longer as there has to be some additional work around that. Most homes, if you are replacing all of the windows, can be done in 1 day, sometimes 2 days at the most. You can ask your installer for exact details, but that’s a good rule of thumb to think of.
Should Someone Be Home?
There will have to be someone home to let the installers in, but it’s not absolutely necessary for there to be someone there for the whole process. However, it is nice to have the homeowner around, just in case. If the installers have questions, they can ask instead of trying to get ahold of you and stalling on the work that could otherwise be done efficiently and quickly.
What Preparations Are Needed?
The installer will likely go over some things that you should do before they arrive to streamline the installation process. For example, you will want to take down any pictures from the walls with windows on them and remove the window coverings from around the windows. You will also want to make sure the installers have easy access to power sources. That might mean moving some furniture or putting out an extension cord with a power strip on it.
Will There Be A Mess?
Replacing windows is not a clean job. While installers will clean up the big debris, there’s going to be dust left behind. It’s a good chance for you to check out the end result as you dust the entire room and enjoy the natural light that comes in after the windows are installed. Look at it that way instead of another chore for you to take on.
