Why Replace Windows in the Winter Rather than the Spring & Summer?

Jan 26, 2019

Have you been thinking about replacing the windows in your home in the Kansas City metro area? You may think that it’s better to wait for warm weather to schedule the project, but experts say that’s a common misconception among homeowners. There can actually be some advantages to having new windows installed during the winter season. Here are a few of them:

Easier Identification of Air Leakage

If you’re planning to replace windows that are failing to prevent air and water infiltration, the winter season can be the best time to identify those weaknesses. Most window-frame materials contract in cold weather, which can make seal failure and worn weather stripping or caulking more obvious. If you feel a draft when you stand near your window, it may be time for a replacement.

Better Scheduling Options

Winter is typically a slower season for home improvement companies, so you may be able to get custom replacement windows faster in the wintertime than during the busy spring and summer seasons. With fewer installation projects to complete, your window contractor may also be able to better accommodate your specific scheduling needs and minimize any disruptions to your daily routine.

Wintertime Installation Practices

To minimize the amount of cold air that blasts into your home when your old windows are removed, many window installers will remove and replace only one window at a time. If you’re having multiple windows replaced, this means each new window will receive individual attention and a meticulous inspection by your installers, thus increasing the quality of the workmanship. It’s a good idea to ask window contractors about their installation practices before you order your replacement windows.
