Decluttering the work area preps your home for the window replacement, but what else can you do to ready yourself for it? Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln shares tips to tackle the project with the right mindset:
Plan the Budget Early
Budgeting for any kind of home renovation is not negotiable. Discussing the design of your replacement windows without thinking about the costs might waste your time and energy. You may even end up having to start from scratch because your funds don’t match your demands. You might also have a few hiccups later on if you fail to prepare for all contingencies.
It’s ideal to save enough money and pay cash for your replacement windows project. But if you don’t want to wait anymore, explore other available fund sources. Other than accepting checks or credit cards, we also offer many financing options to our qualified customers. We can help you secure a favorable loan to break down your payment into many manageable installments.
Expect the Unavoidable
Installing replacement windows comes with a challenge or two. Although our process involves protecting your home against dust, you must still be ready for the mess and noise. You should also expect hidden structural challenges. Our representatives may identify a few early on, but we can only confirm them during the actual construction. They may require change orders, so be psychologically and financially ready for any necessary extra work.
Schedule Installation Without the Kids
Removing old units and putting in replacement windows could upend your world. If you have children, it’s wise to schedule the installation without them in the house. They might not handle the disruption well since they depend on routine and normalcy. The commotion might cause your little ones a lot of stress, making you, in turn, stressed as well.
