  1. Try to get a reasonable idea of what you want before you start, do some research and decide what your budget is.
  2. Try to approximately assess the current condition of your windows or door and be aware of the size and the nature of the material you already obtain or desire to refurbish .
  3. Decide the time period you would like for the work to take place.
  4. Think about the problems that your windows or doors have, in order to decide the type of product that suits your needs and situation, moving forward.
