Most home improvements are ideally done during the spring and summer seasons because the weather isn’t as harsh. Certain materials are also unsuitable for installation during any other time. Fortunately, this is not the case with window replacement. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey discusses the things you should expect when having your windows replaced during winter.
Why Do Window Replacement In Winter?
Unlike other types of home improvements, window replacement can be done during any season, even in the middle of winter. This means you don’t have to suffer the effects of drafty windows during winter, or the high heating costs that come with it. The installation process—which we will get into in detail later—is a key ingredient in ensuring a successful installation unencumbered by the season.
A traditional window replacement process requires removing all windows at once. This worked when heating and air conditioning systems weren’t commonplace, but today, this method would expose the entire house to outdoor conditions. In addition to limiting the seasons when it can be done, it can also make the home uncomfortable to stay in as the windows are installed.
Renewal by Andersen Window Replacement Process
Our window replacement process makes it possible to install replacement windows, even large picture windows, during any season. During installation, you will not be asked to leave the house, or even turn off your HVAC system.
Our installation team makes this possible by closing off each room that is being worked on. Installers work in teams and remove one window at a time, which helps minimize outdoor exposure. Window removal usually takes about five minutes or less, followed immediately by window installation.
Our installers will then continue installation from room to room until all replacement windows are installed. Even with minor structural repairs on wall openings, it only takes our installers a day to complete installation on an average-sized home. Each window undergoes a strict quality inspection, along with a demonstration of the windows’ features, before installation is called complete.
