Getting the Replacement Job Done Right
When the time comes for replacing your home’s window glass, taking the proper steps to prepare is essential for a successful installation. While having your window glass replaced may seem easy, there is a specific preparation process to follow in order to ensure a successful installation and help prevent injury or damage to the home and its contents. Here are ways to get the home window glass replacement job done the right way:
clear the window area
First, move any items near or on the window. This includes furniture, curtains, and any other items that are near the window and could be affected by the removal of the glass. Also, be sure to collect any screws, frames, and moving parts that will need to be removed and clean the surrounding areas to create a clean, safe work environment.
measure the window
Once everything is cleared away, the next step is to measure the window and the glass opening. Measurements should be made from the top, bottom, and sides of the window and should correspond to the glass measurement requirements. Be sure to measure exactly and accurately to ensure a good fit and proper installation as even a small miscalculation could be disastrous.
remove old windows
After the measurements have been taken, the next step is to properly remove the old window glass. This can be done easily with the help of a professional window installer. Be sure to follow all manufacturer’s instructions and safety guidelines to ensure your safety and that of the property.
Once the old window glass has been removed, the new window glass should be carefully installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
