If your windows or glass patio doors are in need of replacing, the perfect time to get them replaced is during the spring season. Not only will the work get done before the weather starts getting too hot, but it also prepares your home for the impending storm season.
Here are some reasons to replace your windows now, before the summer:
The Condition Are Just Right For Window Replacement
One obvious reason that spring is an ideal time to replace your windows is the weather itself. Replacing your windows during the winter months will leave you with a flood of cold air coming into your home during installation. On the other end of the spectrum, if you replace your window during the scorching summer months, you will be letting all that hot air into your house, which will most likely lead to you cranking up the air conditioner.
In addition to just the weather being perfect, the temperature can also have some slight effects on the materials used in replacement windows. For example, when caulking takes place when the weather is cold, the caulk could crack and/or split. Meanwhile, waiting for summer is also not a good idea when it comes to caulking. In hot temperatures, caulk may not cure properly. The perfect temperature to apply caulk is typically between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (which for Florida is not hard to accommodate most times of the year.)
Now’s the Perfect Time to Boost Your Curb Appeal
Spring is the perfect time to change the look of your home. When it comes to aesthetics, what better time is there to give your home (including windows) a freshening up? Everything is green and growing around your home. Why not give your home that new glow?
It is also the time when you may notice that your windows need replacing in the first place. Many people notice their windows or framing are deteriorating when they are doing their annual spring-cleaning. It may have been a while since you have even tried to open your windows - so you may even notice that your windows are not opening and closing easily, or perhaps they are even stuck.
Windows In Every Season
There are many benefits to replacing your windows, no matter what the season. Whether your main reason is aesthetics, energy efficiency or addressing maintenance issues, you don’t have to wait till spring or summer to upgrade. If any of those reasons have landed window replacement on your to-do list, now is the perfect time to get the work done and cross the task off your list!
