What to do About a Broken Window in Your Home

Mar 05, 2021

The last thing you need in your life is a broken window in your home. However, this can happen for a variety of reasons, ranging from inclement weather to a simple accident.

Should you find yourself facing this situation, here’s what you need to do:

•    Pinpoint the cause: Not only will this help you avoid a similar situation in the future, but it may work in your favor when deciding if you want to make a home insurance claim.

•    Think safety first: Block off the area to ensure that no one on the inside or outside can access the window. This is particularly important if you have small children at home.

•    Clean up the area: To the best of your ability, clean the area to remove any glass and debris. While doing so, take extreme caution to protect against injury. This is also the right time to find a temporary window covering.

From there, immediately decide on how to replace the window. Unless you have experience, it’s best to consult with a professional window installation company.

Not only can they replace this window, but they can also inspect the rest of your windows. You. may find that now’s the right time for a complete window replacement project.

You hope that you never have to deal with a broken window, but there’s no way of knowing what the future will hold. Fortunately, there are some quick steps you can take to remedy this situation.
