Important things to know when installing replacement windows in your Los Angeles home

When it comes time to do home improvement on your beautiful Los Angeles home there is not a smarter decision that you could make then the effective replacement windows that the certified experts at Clark Adams offers. Not only are the professionals who install them the top of the line in careful precision, but they know how to best serve your needs.

It is a fact that as much as 30 to 40% of energy expense is lost from poorly installed windows, doors, insulation, and roofing. It is also a fact that most people when surveyed agree that having an expert do the installation for their home improvement project gave them great relief, and it allowed the customer to focus on more important things.

Although this may be true, the fact remains there are still many home owners that enjoy, if not the whole process, getting involved in the installation themselves. When this happens, particularly for those who want to do the project all on their own, it is a good idea to take a few things into consideration.

To begin with it is important to always keep in mind that a window replacement project for your Los Angeles and surround area home is a progressive event. It is not something that should all be done simultaneously. Remove only one or two windows at a time and replace them before moving on to the next. These are spaces that you will need to manage and maintain while the installation is underway, and as Murphy’s law suggests, particularly when you are attempting this on your own, if something is going to happen, it will. You don’t want to be left struggling to keep weather, animals, and insects from entering your home while you are trying to work on a new window.

Secondly, you need to clear the area and remove all window treatments. This means you need to take down all shades, blinds, or other items nearby before even the installers arrive. This is a good way to make sure that the area is clear and unobstructed for anyone who will be working with the window.  It will also cut down on any potential unwanted or unnecessary damage that could occur.

Another extremely important item to keep in mind is the fitting. When Clark Adams Co window specialists come in to your home they will examine the area that you are working with, and do complete measurements. They will look at any possible obstacle or potential problem that they may run into and make their calculations based upon this information as to how the installation will happen. Failing to do this will have the potential to cause you to have poorly installed windows. These windows can lead to drafts and leakages that can cost not only more in energy loss each month, and damage from the weather, but also the potential for health related issues from the buildup of mold.

When considering whether or not you should do your own installation, first examine the big picture, and make sure that you have a clear and honest look and understanding of what it will take. If you have done this and feel that you can handle whatever you may face then it can be a rewarding experience. However, for those who want to ensure that they have a positive experience up front, and feel that assistance can make the installation better, contact Clark Adams at (310) 734-5554 to schedule a free, no obligation estimate.
