Best Time To Replace Windows

When is the best time to replace windows? Replacement windows and patio doors are installed year round, so you, as the customer, can decide when is the best time to make this important improvement to your home. There are different reasons and factors when deciding the best time to replace windows, so keep these options in mind when considering what is best for you.

When Is The Best Time To Replace Windows?

Cold air from windows

It is always a good time to consider replacing your windows when you first feel drafts or suspect leaky seals. Avoiding this sign can lead to water seepage in a major wind, rain or snow storm. Addressing this matter will prevent drywall and interior/exterior damage, as well as, potential mold issues. Seals begin to weaken around the 15 year mark and most fail after 20 years. Most of these windows are the original windows that were installed when your home was built and are “builder grade windows”. Unfortunately these windows are structurally thin and provide low insulation value. The operation and locking systems of these windows also start to fail around the same time as leaky seals.

Another popular window we replace is the single pane window. These windows were made between 15-100+ ago. Single pane windows are also low energy efficient and tend to break easily. The glass is usually not insulated with Low E Glass which is found in most double and triple pane windows. Low E Glass provides you with layers of coating which make a significant difference in warming and cooling your home. Customers also benefit from their homes being safer and quieter.

Deciding the best time to replace windows is another factor. Many customers prefer to schedule a time when it is not either too hot or too cold. Most companies replace one window at a time so you don’t have to deal with the elements if the weather changes. The “sweet spot” for weather typically occurs in the Spring or Fall. Summertime pricing can be a little more expensive and this is usually the busiest time of the window replacement business.

Winter is the least expensive time to get your windows replaced and easiest time to work around your schedule. Keep your eyes open for seasonal deals, especially in January and February. If you don’t mind a cool house for a few days, you can complete your window replacement job more economically at this time, sometimes up to 20% off the regular price. Regardless of the time of year the windows are installed, you can expect your home to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
