How to Manage the Mess During Window Replacement

Any home improvement project requires you to deal with a certain amount of mess, and this includes window replacement. Swapping out your old window means that you have to prepare for the dust and dirt, which would likely result from the ongoing work. The good thing, though, is that there are ways to minimize the potential mess.

How to Manage the Mess During Window Replacement

 

Here are some tips on how you can contain the mess during a window replacement job.

Plastic Wrap Coverings

You can use plastic wrap to cover the interior surfaces of your home and any large furniture that you can’t move to a safer area. This will prevent dust and dirt from settling on your shelves, couches and beds. Window contractors typically dispose of the plastic wraps at the end of each day or set them aside for disposal upon completion of the job. If you prefer one over the other, don’t hesitate to let your contractor know.

Drop Cloths

Drop cloths should be placed across your home so that only a minimal amount of dust and debris will land on your floor. The number of drop cloths needed usually depends on how many energy-efficient windows will be installed since the cloths are only spread in specific areas where the installation is happening. Much like the plastic wrap covers, these drop cloths can be disposed of at the end of each day or at the last day of the window replacement project.

Securing Your Belongings

If you can move certain items to another room or a storage area, go for it. This is probably the best way to keep your valuables safe and avoid risk of damage while work is ongoing. Your garage or basement could be a good place to store them away. But if these don’t have the space to accommodate your belongings, you can also opt to rent storage.

"Their workers who installed the windows were excellent. Our experience with the sales rep was pleasant. He did not pressure us. He made suggestions that saved us money."

"I would give everyone involved in the whole process a 10 out of 10. With the exception of the window installation crew. They get an 11 out of 10. I can't express in words what an excellent job they did. They went above and beyond."

"Although it is a process and doesn't happen overnight the wait is worth the end results. A Representative will come to your home and walk you through the entire process. It does take a few weeks from the time they send someone to your home to personally measure your windows to the time the factory specifically custom cuts your windows and ships them out. However, the end result is overwhelmingly satisfactory. The crew sent to install them were professional, cleaned up after the job was completed and did the job in half the time they thought it would take. Highly recommend!"
