Have you ever had professional workers in your home before? Perhaps you had someone put in new flooring or you got work done on your HVAC system. It can be awkward having someone you don’t really know working around your house. How should you act? What should you say? What do you need to host the replacement window installers in Costa Mesa, CA? Here are a few things to put your mind at ease.
Replacement window installers are used to this job. They do into a different home every day, take out old windows, and put in new ones. They work with and around homeowners all the time. Don’t feel like you are putting them out. They are doing a job they are good at and they are being paid for it. It’s not an inconvenience to them and they are happy to be there. However, don’t feel like they are a guest in your home, either. You don’t have to make them feel like they can sit down and put their feet up on the coffee table. If you want to offer a pitcher of cold water, iced tea, or lemonade, they will appreciate the gesture, but you certainly don’t have to. These technicians operate on a remote basis. They bring their lunches and drinks so they can work hard, get things done in short order, take breaks as needed, and have what they need for the day.
It is nice, however, if you offer the use of your bathroom to the technicians. When they arrive, simply show them where the restroom is and tell them it is open to them as needed. If they don’t feel comfortable using the facilities, they may have to track you down and ask your permission during the day, which just slows them down. Otherwise, they may take a break and run to the nearest gas station for that purpose, which also will take time out of their day.
It’s great to be friendly to the technicians in your home and welcome them to the house. Show them the outlets they need and thank them for coming and when they leave. But don’t feel like you have to stand around, chat with them, oversee them, or treat them like you would another guest. Once they know where to go and what to do, it’s okay to leave them to it while you work in another room and let them do their job.
These are just a few tips on hosting installers in your home when you are getting replacement windows in Costa Mesa, CA. While you may not be completely comfortable having people you don’t know very well in your house, it’s just for a day or two and you will be so happy with the results, it’s definitely worth it.
