Most homeowners believe that installing windows and doors in the winter months is unwise. They think that the home will be exposed to the cold for too long. This is actually not true. Windows can be replaced and installed any time of the year. Window installment may take slightly longer, but that’s because the installation crew will assemble a tent around the opening to seal and protect your home from the weather.
The new products will be prepped beforehand so the process will fairly quickly. The old window will be taken out and the opening will be cleaned or altered–such as replacing rotting wood. Then the new window will be placed into the opening and then leveled and secured. It’s as simple as that. If more than one product is being replaced, they will be done one at a time to reduce the amount of cold air that may enter the home.
There are a few indications that you need to replace your windows that you can watch for. If you feel air flowing in when the window is closed, it is time to replace your window. Condensation on the inside of the window may also point to the need for new windows, or it may just be a moisture level problem. Obviously, cracked windows should be replaced.
