Do You Have to Leave Your Home During a Window Replacement Project?

Window replacement seems like it will be a straightforward project, but it actually takes as much careful planning as other home upgrades. There are a couple of bases to cover, one of which is deciding whether to stay somewhere else temporarily during the window replacement process. But is leaving your home actually necessary? 

Do You Have to Leave Your Home During a Window Replacement Project?

No, You Don’t Have To Leave

Compared to other home improvement projects, window replacement is not as disruptive to your daily routine. The only components involved are the windows, after all. Depending on the number of crew members (and the number of new windows you’re having installed), the window contractor may work on one or two rooms at a time. This leaves most areas inside your home unoccupied, so there actually isn’t any need to stay somewhere else until the project is finished.

Window replacement is also not time-intensive, so the work may be completed in a day. In cases where the home is larger, and the number of windows to be replaced is bigger, the work should conclude on the second day. A third one usually isn’t needed. 

Preparing for Window Replacement

There are a couple of things you can do to make your window replacement run more smoothly. You should, for instance:

  • Make sure you and your window installer are on the same page about preventing damage and reducing mess in your home and property during the project.
  • Have small children or pets stay in a room that’s furthest away from the window replacement site to ensure their safety.
  • Any small items around the windows should be stored elsewhere, and any large furniture that can’t be moved should be covered to protect them.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
