When is the Best Time to Buy Replacement Windows?

Did you know that the average home loses one-third of its heat through drafty windows? With winter in full swing, breezy windows become more noticeable, but many homeowners still tolerate unwanted drafts during the colder months because they think it’s best to wait for warmer weather to install replacement windows. With new Andersen windows, however, you can safeguard your home year-round with one of the most trusted and highest-quality window manufacturers in the industry.

With proper preparation, your replacement windows can be installed quickly and efficiently, even in the dead of winter. As an added bonus, when you replace windows in January, February, or March, it’s much easier to schedule a contractor!

Regardless of when you decide to have your replacement windows installed, here are a couple of tips that will help you ensure a secure and proper fit.

1) Install in the Proper Weather

Ideally, your contractor will install your Acre replacement windows on a dry day with a temperature between 40-80 degrees Fahrenheit. When scheduling your installation, consult a weekly or bi-weekly weather forecast that includes the target date and choose a time with the most ideal conditions. Be wary of scheduling your window replacement too far in advance since weather systems are dynamic and can alter prior to the day.

2) Use the Correct Caulking

Certain types of caulking work best at certain temperatures. If you need to install when it is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, make sure your contractor is using silicone caulking instead of latex. You may also want to discuss how the caulking will expand during the warmer months.

3) Securely Cover Any Openings

To reduce or mitigate drafts in your home during installation, ask your contractor to cover any openings with heavy-duty plastic. This will keep drafts out and prevent your heater from running non-stop.

4) Prepare the Area for Installation

It’s important that you prepare the window replacement area before your contractor arrives. Trim any bushes or trees that may be in the way, clear any dust or pollen off the window ledge, and remove any obstructing blinds, curtains, or furniture.
