We get this question often and the short answer is, whenever. The only time we don’t replace windows is in heavy rain or a wind event. It’s important to us that your home is protected and that our teams are safe. However, there are a lot more things to consider than just the weather. Here are some other answers we give customers about when the best time to replace windows really is.
The Season Doesn’t Matter
Of course, if you decide to replace your windows during our rainy season, there’s more of a chance that your scheduled date will be changed. In summer we often have to take breaks when thunderstorms roll through, so a one-day installation may turn into a two-day installation.
Ask Yourself if You’re Prepared
The replacement window company does the bulk of the work, however, we do need you to prep your space. You’ll need to remove all curtains and blinds. You also need to move furniture away from the window areas and we ask that you remove pictures from the walls surrounding windows. Once we replace your windows, we’ll clean up any dirt we’ve created and leave the space as it was before we arrived, but with new windows installed. That means you’ll need to put furniture, curtains and wall décor back.
Comfortable with the Expense
Replacement windows are an investment in your home. You’ll see many benefits including reduced heating and cooling costs. However, you’re not going to recoup the investment in a year or even a few years. On average, most homeowners save about $400 a year according to energy.gov. If you’re financing, charging or using a HELOC to pay for your windows, you need to understand that you’re not going to save the payment on your monthly utility bill.
Understand Replacement Window Terms
If you want to replace windows in your home, you should have a basic understanding of window terms before you meet with a replacement window company. You’ll want to understand the keys to buying new windows facts before a salesman tries to sell you on the product he makes the most money on. We recommend understanding the NFRC window sticker and the terms discussed so you can compare similar windows in an apples to apples fashion.
