Spring and warmer temperatures are sure fire signs of home renovation season. Homeowners across the country are busy planning how they want to improve their home this year. While some are focusing on customizing their living space, others are making important and necessary repairs that will improve their home – for many homeowners, this means installing new windows.
Installing new windows in your home is a great way to improve energy efficient, safety features and improve the look of your home. It’s also more appealing to potential home buyers if you are thinking about selling your home in the near future.
A common question we receive from our customers is, “when is the best time to install new windows?” It’s a great question. While it can depend on many factors, spring is generally regarded as the best time of the year to install or replace your windows.
However, if you are reading this blog in the later summer or early fall and you have significant issues with your windows (heat loss, leaks, water damage) it’s always best to act now.
Why Is Spring The Best Time To Install New Windows?
Here are three great reasons why spring is the best time to install new windows during the spring:
Beat the summer rush: It’s no secret that summer is the busiest time of the year for window replacements, making it potentially difficult to book your window replacement project. Beat the rush and book your window installation at a time that fits within your schedule this spring.
Get it done now: For some homeowners, it’s just about getting it done now. Taking care of new window insulation now ensures you don’t procrastinate, you can take advantage of all the benefits of new windows sooner, and you can enjoy your summer.
Ideal weather: Spring is the ideal time to replace windows. It’s usually the time of the year where you’ve turned off the heat for the season, and have not yet had to turn on your air conditioner, meaning that you won’t waste energy while the windows are being replaced. If the weather is too cold, such as in the fall or winter, you could run into issues during the installation process.
