Top 3 Reasons To Replace Windows During the Winter
Have you been meaning to replace your windows all year, and now that winter’s come around, you feel that it’s too late? Many homeowners assume that their home improvement projects such as replacement windows have to be done in the spring or summer or the weather will be too harsh to allow it. This is simply not true. In fact, Some homeowners actually prefer to replace their windows during the winter. Here are a few reasons why it might be best to replace your windows during the winter.
Yes, this is a positive — for you. Spring and summer are some of the busiest times of year for contractors, while winter is the slowest season. This means that contractors will better be able to prioritize your project. You may have more freedom when it comes to scheduling your project, an easier time contacting them in case of any questions or changes, and you may be able to save money on the cost of your materials. You may even be able to enjoy winter specific special offers from your replacement window contractor.
More Obvious Window Problems
Often, homeowners don’t realize the urgent need for a window replacement until the cold weather hits. It’s then that they begin to feel drafts or notice window condensation forming on cold evenings. You don’t want to deal with these window issues all through the winter, and you don’t want to have to pay the heightened heating bills that might come with them. It’s better to have your window replaced in the winter as soon as you notice the problem so as not to suffer any more heat loss or extra costs.
The main concern when it comes to winter window replacements is that cold air will get into the home, making it uncomfortable over the course of the project. Of course, any time there’s an opening into your home, the air from outside will get in; but professional window installation teams know how to minimize the discomfort. In a replacement window installation, only one window is replaced at a time, so the opening into your home will be limited. They’ll also use plastic barriers to help keep the home from getting too cold over the course of the window replacement.
With the right replacement window company, you don’t have to fear a replacement window project. In fact, you might even find it preferable to the rest of the year. Contact Jancewicz & Son today for more information or to get started with a free estimate.
