Installing your own windows can be done, but make sure you understand the full scope of the job before jumping in. Get all the free advice and instruction you can from local contractors or specialists, and take the time to prepare yourself with guides and videos from the local library, bookstore, or the internet. While installing windows in a basic sense may be an easy task, making sure they are properly installed can be a bit more complicated. Improperly installed frames can be a headache that lasts for years, as they will negatively impact your home’s installation and result in home repair costs and reduced home value down the line.

If you have lots of windows, do not attempt to replace them all at once. It is easy to cover a couple holes in the house, but a dozen holes can be a problem, as animals and the elements will make every effort to make your home theirs. Carefully consider which windows will have the least impact on family life at which times. For example, if the kids are going away for camp or vacation, work on their windows while they are away and save yours for later.
If you have contracted with a window repair or installation company, make sure to keep the workspace clean and free of objects that might be damaged or that might make their job more difficult. Blinds, curtains, and other window dressings should be taken down and put away, and you will obviously want to remove any ornaments such as candles, pottery, or other accessories.
In the same vein, create a clear understanding between you, the work team, and the family about what space will be needed for work and which parts of the house the workers should and should not enter. This will prevent any undue stress once work is under way.
Double-check to see that the windows you ordered are the windows you receive, and that they include all certification and rating stickers. If you notice any imperfections or do not feel comfortable with the delivered product, speak up before installation begins.
