Are you thinking about replacing your windows in the winter? Chances are new windows have crossed your mind, but it’s cold and snowy, it’s dark before dinner, and your attention is on the holidays. With all of these distractions, you want to know what the advantages of replacing your windows in the winter are before you make your decision. We’re here to tell you that despite a common misconception, replacing your windows during the winter is a good idea. All we need is for you to tell us what style and function you desire from your new windows. We’ll take it from there.
Psst, DID YOU KNOW? Winter is the best time to identify problems
Your windows might look sharp without any damage as far as the eye can see, but leaks and drafts are difficult to catch. You’re more likely to see and feel these issues in the chill of winter. To identify these trouble spots, read How to Find and Fix Drafty Windows.
P.S. Applying an insulation film in the winter is one trick for temporarily removing drafts. Come summer, though, you’ll want a permanent fix. Any leaks in your windows will impact your energy bill as all that cool air coming from your A/C escapes.
OK, Let’s Get To It
The Benefits of Replacing Your Windows During the Winter
- Scheduling: As a four-seasons contractor, TH Remodeling & Renovations Inc. offers the same services in winter as we would in spring. All seasons are treated equally! Warmer months, however, are the busiest of the year for exterior home remodelers like us. Scheduling your estimate and choosing to replace your windows in the winter saves you from longer wait times and allows you more flexibility.
- Product Availability: Top brands and manufacturers receive high demand, and often come with longer lead times for popular products. The earlier your order is placed, the sooner you’ll have your windows. Making your request in winter can guarantee your windows are fully functional come spring. A typical “slow season” lead time is between 3 to 6 weeks. Peak season lead times can range from 6 to 12 weeks, depending on your custom requests like color and style.
