When it comes to replacing your windows, it can really be done at any time of year. It’s important to replace your windows as soon as they begin to break down, so you can keep your home safe and comfortable.
However, if you’re more flexible and replacing your windows is not an emergency, spring is the perfect time of year to replace your windows:
1. The weather is mild
One of the main reasons that makes spring the perfect time to install new windows is that the weather is mild, and tends to be predictable. The chance of snow has likely passed, and your home won’t be exposed to extreme cold or heat while the installation takes place.
2. The days are longer
During the spring and early summer, we get longer days, with more hours of sunlight than in the fall and winter. While that doesn’t mean you can’t install windows during the rest of the year, spring days give your installers more daylight hours to work and, as a result, the installation may take fewer days to complete.
3. Ideal for caulking
Installing new windows involves caulking, and caulk can be susceptible to extreme weather. Spring temperatures are mild and are not typically extremely hot or extremely cold, which allows the caulking to easily adhere to the windows and your home.
Weather can also impact the window material itself. Most new windows are made of aluminum and vinyl, which expand in warm weather and contract in cold temperatures. This can cause movement of the substrate, which can weaken the integrity of your windows. Installing windows in the spring can avoid this issue.
Hiring a reputable and experienced window installation company means that you can have windows installed at any time of year. Find an Ostaco Windows & Doors dealer near you.
