It's the beginning of a brand-new year, and you are ready to get started on some of those resolutions! Perhaps, you'll want to tackle home renovations, like installing replacement windows?

If you've noticed a definite increase in the number of drafts in your home this winter, odds are that it's time to replace your windows in Grand Rapids. Even though your windows may be intact, the energy efficiency has been lost due to the window seals and gaskets aging. Over time, these damaged window panes can lose the gas fill that's inside of them. Plus, these windows have cracks in them from all the areas where the seals dried out and shrank over time.

The best solution is a new window installation.

Scheduling Your Window Replacement Project

The first step to getting new window installation is finding the right window company and setting up an appointment sooner rather than later. Things tend to slow down for contractors in winter. Spring is when work starts getting busy again. Their schedule tends to fill up fast on warm spring and late spring days. So, start researching window contractors now. 

Once you find a few candidates request that free cost estimate with an onsite consultation. This will help you get the most accurate bids and be able to meet with someone from the team.

How to Prepare for that Window Replacement?

During the day of a window installation, contractors are always busy. They may be rushing to get to work right away and not have time for a lot of chitchat. Be sure to ask ahead of time, if there is anything you need to do to prepare for that appointment. 

Many times homeowners are advised to clear furniture and other household items away from all the windows they are about to replace. Don't attempt to remove the window or make any repairs on your own. Just make sure that the home is accessible and that there's plenty of room for contractors to move around when working.
