The best time of year to replace your windows

There’s usually a right and wrong time when it comes to conducting home renovations. However, replacing your windows both during the cold or warm months has a number of advantages and disadvantages. At Canadian Comfort Windows and Doors, we pride ourselves in our ability to install your windows under any weather conditions. Let our team of experts walk you through some of the pros and cons of both warm weather and cold weather window installation.

Cold weather installation

There are a number of advantages that come with choosing to do your window renovations during the colder months of the year. The beginning of spring and the end of fall are generally considered to be “off-season” for most contractors. So having your windows installed during these times could present an opportunity to receive a reduced price for your project. Not to mention the fact that it’s far easier to get a contractor when their schedule is almost entirely open. Trained window replacement experts, like the ones who work for Canadian Comfort Windows and Doors, can get the job done with minimal inconvenience to you and your family. Window replacement doesn’t take very long, so cold exposure to the inside of your home will be minimal. However, unpredictable weather and frequent snowfalls could slow things down.

Warm weather installation
One of the biggest drawbacks of having your windows replaced at the very peak of summer is contractor availability. When everybody in the neighbourhood wants to have their work done at the same time, finding someone to do quality work can be a bit of a challenge. Many people also worry that frequent thunderstorms and heavy rainfall could seriously affect the quality and effectiveness of their renovations. If you want to have your windows done at this time of year, be sure to schedule early to avoid as many complications as possible. Ideally, what you want is to replace your windows when it’s hot, but not too hot outside. Severe heat can be just as bad as sub zero temperatures when it comes to open spaces where your windows are supposed to be.

Verdict
At the end of the day it really comes down to a matter of personal preference. If you want things to be done fast, booking in the winter might be worth the inconvenience. If you’d like to avoid the cold and snow, book in advance and have your windows replaced in the spring or summer months.
