When you use a windows and doors company, a good one will make the process appear seamless from start to finish. Whether they’re replacing your apartment front door or installing new bay windows in your front room, they should make the whole project easy and enjoyable. Creating such a positive experience for homeowners only comes through expert planning, picking up on any issues which may arise, identifying challenges to overcome and making sure everything is in place for an efficient installation on the day. Here are some of the aspects a specialist window and door supplier will consider.
During the planning stages, your supplier will organise for one of their trained surveyors to visit your property. During this visit, they check everything from the specifications of your order to the spaces where products will be installed. They’ll also perform a risk assessment. For example, when installing in some areas at height, they may decide scaffolding will be required to ensure the safety of the fitters, as well as anyone around the property.
DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS
Access is an important factor in the planning process, determining how smoothly your installation is on the day. Imagine if the installation team turned up, only to find they can’t get near to your building, or they can’t transport the products to the right site easily. It’s important to consider everything from parking and property access to where the window and door systems will be constructed. Origin, for example, flat pack their larger products such as bi-folding doors, so they can be transported through a house easily if there’s no side entrance. In really busy places such as central London apartments or riverside properties, the company may even decide to deliver products and tools at a quieter time such as a weekend, knowing everything is ready for the installation if they can’t park near the property on the day.
HOW TO REPLACE THE WINDOWS
Without a well-planned installation, you could run the risk of the job running over schedule which can have a knock-on effect to customers, as well as the team. Part of overcoming this is considering that it’s not just the new windows or doors which need installing but the removal of the old ones too. Sometimes once the old windows are removed, it can even create more access to lift new products through the openings to get them to where they need to be. That’s why it’s important for a windows and doors company to plan the installation order to perfection to make sure the work is completed as efficiently as possible.
