You know you’re in need of a window replacement soon, but when is the best time?
Window replacement can be done at any time, even in the winter, but different seasons have their advantages. Here’s some guidance about what makes fall a great time for a window replacement in Northern climates.
The weather is nice
It’s not too hot, not too cold. It’s often less rainy when compared to spring and summer. Fall is the ideal time for dealing with a temporary hole in the wall. When a window replacement is done, there’s always a period of time when the window opening is windowless. Especially for full-frame window replacements, the window installer will need to take some time to remove the old frame, and possibly repair any rotted wood before installing the new window and frame. This makes fall an ideal time for interior comfort during the window replacement process.
Winter is coming
While fall’s cool beauty is refreshing, it’s also a friendly reminder that it’s time to prepare our homes winter. It’s never a fun experience to weather a winter with old drafty windows. Don’t wait until it’s chilly and frosty. Maximize your enjoyment of winter and gain energy savings by replacing your home’s windows in the fall.
Competitive deals and financing
Window companies are eager this time of year to fulfill quotas and maximize sales before the slowdown in the winter. This demand often leads to promotional offers and financing deals. Fall is an excellent time to get the best value out of your window replacement project. Homeowners can often catch low cost financing, sometimes even interest free. Some window manufacturers will offer special rebates and bulk discounts that you can get through your window contractor.
