Windows are extremely important parts of your home. They provide visual access to the outside world while providing ventilation, natural light, heat and energy efficiency. Energy efficiency, in particular, is very important in seasons like summer and winter. Window replacement in the winter is actually advantageous in certain areas, contrary to what most people would think. Is it really okay to replace your windows during winter? Siding experts from Twin Cities Siding Professionals are here to share the info you need!
Advantage in Schedule and Costs
As winter is a slow season for most construction and home improvement contractors, having your windows replaced during this season means fewer problems and issues regarding costs and scheduling. Packages and services are cheaper as there are fewer homeowners who want to have their homes worked on during this time. Some contractors even give out discounts! Scheduling is also a lot easier due to the same reason, so smart homeowners take advantage of this season!
Tips for Winter Window Replacement
Though winter window replacement saves up a lot in terms of time and costs, it’s also the season of snow and cold climate, so there are environmental and external factors that may pose risks for homeowners. But there are many ways to mitigate these problems, such as the following:
- Removing/replacing one window at a time to prevent snow and cold air from entering the household during the installation process.
- Using plastic floor-to-ceiling barriers to cover large openings. This is especially useful for the installation of bay or bow windows.
- Keep doors closed and every other frequently used entryways or openings to prevent cold air from entering and warm air from escaping.
- Practice cleanliness at all times as there will be times that snow-covered boots of contractors moving in and out of your house will track mud and moisture on the floor, so make sure to clean high foot traffic areas, and sanitize them well.
