How to prep the home for outdoor blinds installation

Outdoor blinds are the perfect choice for homeowners looking to extend their living space and create an awesome entertainment zone. The only thing you have to do before Slidetrack comes out to install your cutting-edge blind solution is prepare the space so that installation is a smooth process. 

Here is a quick guide for readying your home for blinds installation.

Know exactly where the blinds will be installed

Determine where your blinds are going to be installed before installers arrive. Regardless of the blind type you want to have a good idea of where they are going to be situated as this will speed up the installation process. You also want to know what kind of surface your blinds will be installed on, whether on the ceiling, behind a bulkhead or attached to a wall. Knowing the surface they will be installed on will help the installer know what tools they need to get the job done quickly and efficiently. 

Clear the space

This is the same for any tradesperson or service provider – they don’t want to find the space filled with unnecessary clutter! It is best to clear the area and walkway to the area of any precious or fragile goods that could be damaged or broken during the installation process. Remove any obstacles like plants, outdoor furniture, barbecues etc. This will save these items from being damaged as well as provide easy access for the installer.

Lay protective covering around the space

Installing outdoor blinds can be messy work, so it is important to ensure the space is protected with covering. Lay some mats or tarpaulin down to ensure no mess gets on the decking or grassy area, your installer will appreciate it and it will help things run very smoothly.
