Wondering what is the best time for window replacement? There are several things to consider, but the easiest answer is that there is no definitive best time to replace your windows. All seasons have their pros and cons and it is up to you to ultimately decide what is best for you.
In the sections below, we’ll highlight the pros and cons of installing windows in each of the four seasons.
Many think Spring is the optimal time of year to have new windows installed in their homes. With reasonable temperatures and long days, Spring installations make it likely that your home will not be sweltering hot or freezing cold while the existing windows are removed, letting unconditioned air into your home.
While these make things very attractive to consumers, you must also consider that Spring is one of the busiest seasons for window installation, so you may find yourself in a long queue for installation and/or manufacturing if your windows are being custom made.
Summer, much like Spring is a very popular time of year for window replacement projects. Weather conditions during Summer, while very hot in some parts of the country, are generally very good for window installation projects. Days are typically long and dry, making the work easier and quicker for the installation technicians.
Like Spring, Summer months can mean longer waits. At Quality Window & Door, we are able to minimize lag time between your decision and installation due to strong relationships with leading window manufacturers and one of the largest window installation teams in the Washington, DC metro area. We are well equipped and prepared to handle your window installation project any time of year.
Fall, like Spring offers outdoor conditions with moderate temperatures, but Fall months, across much of the country, tend to be some of the wettest months of the year. Additionally, days begin to shorten, potentially turning a single day project into multiple days depending on project size.
On the plus side, the lead times for custom window orders and installation are shorter as the period of high demand is over.
Winter is easily the slowest month for window replacement contractors. Between the winter holidays, harsh winter weather, and short days, it is a project that many simply leave for the warmer months and understandably so.
Despite the cons, there are advantages to having your windows replaced during winter months. Wait times are virtually non-existent compared to busier months. You may also be able to score better deals on your project since most window replacement companies have excess capacity during these months.
