It’s springtime in Illinois, and that means for many homeowners, it’s time to start thinking about getting your home improvement projects in line. One of the most common home exterior projects for homeowners is replacing windows. Springtime is the ideal time to take a look at your windows and replace older ones with newer, more energy-efficient alternatives.


At Window World in Bloomington, we’re experts at replacement window installation, and we love helping homeowners get their homes in shape to battle the elements next year. We often have homeowners ask if there is anything they can do to make their window replacement go smoothly. That’s why we’ve put together this post to discuss some ways you can be ready for a smooth window installation.


1.      Clear the Window

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to have decorative items on the window ledge in their home. Removing any of these items will make your replacement go more smoothly. You can also remove the window coverings, blinds, valances, and other treatments from the area. That way, we can easily work with your window free of impediments.


2.      Occupy the Kids

If you’ve got children in your home, we definitely don’t want them to get injured by our window replacement. That’s why it’s a good idea to find something to occupy your children while we’re going to be in your home. The window replacement won’t take long, and then they can get back to the business of playing!


3.      Put the Pets Away

Whether you’ve got a big old doggo or a lasagna-loving cat, it’s a good idea to clear them out of the area. We don’t want them to escape through the open window while we’re replacing it. But we also don’t want to take a chance that your beloved furry pals could be injured by our window replacement process. That’s why for best results, it’s a good idea to move these guys to a bedroom while we’re in your home.


4.      Cover Nearby Furniture

Replacing your windows can be a little dusty. That’s why if you’re concerned about art or furniture near the window, it’s a good idea to remove or cover these items with fabric or drop cloths. We’ll do our very best to be as neat as possible, but it’s always a good idea to protect your things when there’s a home repair project in the works.
