Replacing your windows during summer or winter may not generally be considered ideal. However, there can also be benefits to carrying it out during the off-season. In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey-New York Metro, a company specializing in windows and sliding patio doors, writes about the benefits of booking your window replacement job during summer or winter.
Window Replacement in the Summer
Summer is usually the season when you see a spike in your energy bills. By replacing your windows during this time of the year, you can immediately start reaping the savings you can get from energy-efficient windows. It also offers a great opportunity to prepare your home for the colder months ahead.
Window Replacement in the Winter
With sufficient preparation and careful planning, a winter installation can definitely work. Of course, there are risks whether you’re installing casement windows or french doors. However, with proper timing, you can ensure the success of your project and the quality of installation.
If possible, ask your contractor to carry out the job on a sunny day, mid-morning. It would also help if your contractor would work on one window at a time, in case there are multiple windows to be replaced. This way, your home won’t be too exposed to the freezing cold. You can also cover any opening with plastic while your contractor is working on your window.
Moreover, make sure that silicone-based caulk will be used and not acrylic or latex. Silicone typically adheres better in cold temperatures, and it can provide improved weatherization and waterproofing.
