Installing curtain rods

April 8, 2010 at 8:18 am | Category: Remodeling Contractor

Things You’ll Need:
Screwdriver Sets
Variable-speed Drills

Step 1-Determine if you want to mount your curtain rods on the window casing or on the wall. If you’re not attaching the curtain rod brackets to the wooden casing, a stud or a nailing block behind the wallboard, you’ll need to use hollow-wall anchors

Step 2-Hold up the rod to the wall or casing to determine the proper height. Place the brackets anywhere from 3 to 6 inches beyond the edge of the window, based on your personal preference.. Place a carpenter’s level over the rod to make sure the rod is level.

Step 3-Mark the placement for the top of the brackets and the position of the bracket holes on the wall or casing in light pencil.

Step 4-Drill pilot holes (shallow holes that will help you start the screws or anchors) into the pencil marks on the wall or casing.

Step 5-Insert screws (usually provided by the manufacturer) or anchors through the bracket and attach them to the wall.

Step 6-Position the curtain rod into the brackets.
