What Do I Need To Do To Prepare For Roller Shutter Installation?

Residential Roller Shutters

You’ve taken site measurements and made a deposit. Your roller shutters have been ordered – but what’s next? We get many questions about how window roller shutter installation happens and how people should prepare for it, so we decided to group them into one article and provide our customers with as much information as possible.

Preparing for installation of roller shutters doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. If you are well-prepared, the process will go more smoothly. We promise! Here are a few things we recommend doing before our team arrives:

What Do I Need To Do To Prepare For Installation?

When we replace your roller shutters, we’ll need access to your windows and doors, as well as access to your yard. Please trim back any excess foliage so we can have access without damaging anything in your garden. Our installers will be happy to help you move any large potted plants or furniture that day if they are too heavy for you.

In addition, our electrician will need access to areas where switches will be installed. We also recommend that you remove small items on tables and dressers, making it easier for us to cover the furniture with dust sheets.

Will There Be Many Disruptions?

The physical access we need will cause some disruption. Our shutter installer will also need to turn off the power for 10-30 minutes during the installation of electric roller shutters or outdoor shutters. We recommend that you turn off all computers in your home before this happens to avoid losing work. Our electrician will always alert you before the power goes out.

Do I Need To Be At Home For The Installation?

You don’t have to be at home the whole time. Many consumers see our installers on-site early in the day and return later after the job is done. We recommend that you return before our installers leave to make sure you are happy with the installation so our installers can show you how to operate your new roller shutters properly.

How Many Tradesmen Will Be Required For My Installation?

That depends on the size and complexity of your installation. For a standard installation, we usually send two installers and an electrician. Our craftsmen work as a team on all jobs to ensure the job is complete and fully functional on the day of installation. If you have a larger installation or if your home has difficult access, we may send more tradespeople.

Do You Remove Any Rubbish?

Yes, our crews will do everything possible to leave your property as neat and clean as possible. Our crews clean thoroughly after each job, use protective sheets if necessary, and gladly take off their shoes before entering your home. We also use a vacuum cleaner to keep your home dust-free during the drilling process. We will also take away any packaging and materials used during the installation.

Please contact us if you have any further queries about installation. Our team will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
