Windows are one of the most important features of any home, and making sure yours are well-kept and functioning properly is an essential part of home maintenance. While window maintenance can be done at any time of the year, choosing the right time to replace them altogether can take a bit more planning.
Though window replacement can be successfully performed at any time of the year, each season presents its own set of unique challenges to consider when planning an installation. In particular, the fall season stands out as one of the best times of the year for replacing windows for a variety of important reasons.
In this article, our expert team of window installation experts at US Remodeling Group shares some of the reasons why this season is one of our favorite times of the year for upgrading to new windows, and why you should get energy-efficient windows installed in your home during fall.
Taking Advantage of the Nice Weather
As obvious as this point might be for most, fall weather is nice—not too hot, not too cold, and perfect for spending time outside in the yard. Compared to spring and summer, it is also less rainy during this season, which can be a huge benefit for homeowners planning on working on their home’s exterior.
With window replacement projects, a dry and temperate day is especially important—as the installation process requires exposed walls for at least a short period of time as the window is changed. The length of time that the window space is exposed will vary due to the state of the area and the fit of the new window being installed, and the longer it takes, the more important the weather will be to the success of your installation.
Preparing for the Winter
Leaking, drafty windows will be most apparent during the winter when energy bills skyrocket, and cold indoor climates make living conditions uncomfortable. If you haven’t already upgraded your windows with more efficient models, fall is your last chance to install energy-efficient windows before winter arrives.
Fall is the Low Season for Home Improvement
The summer is the busiest season for home remodeling companies, which means that the most reputable companies are more available in the fall for performing window installation. Additionally, many installation companies offer excellent prices and promotions on new window installation services and products once the high summer season is over. If you’re hoping to get the best deal on your upcoming window replacement project, it’s always a good idea to wait until the fall to take advantage of the flexible installation schedules and competitive prices. For the best value for your home improvement project, be sure to shop around and ask for estimates from reputable window companies during this season.
