Replacing your old windows is often made necessary by damage from storms or pests, or because your windows have grown old, or because you simply want to make your home look better while reducing your energy costs. No matter what the reason, it is important to plan your window replacement project carefully. And that means getting the timing right.
Many people have asked us the “best” time to replace their windows. The answer is, “As soon as you want to start saving money and living in a more comfortable home!” But there are considerations to make when choosing the optimal season for window replacement.
The most favorable time is when the weather will be the most predictable. We plan every installation in advance, and “switch out” old windows for new quickly. Still, there will be some time when there is an opening in the side of your home, exposing the interior to the exterior cold, heat, and humidity. We mitigate this exposure to the best of our ability, and it is unlikely that there is any risk to your home, even in the middle of winter. Yet it is helpful to plan the window replacement work for a time that is least likely to see heavy rain or high winds.
Another consideration is scheduling. For example, many homeowners are eager to have their new windows installed before the winter. They want the reassurance of knowing they will be snug behind their energy-efficient Bristol windows before the snow flies. Or they want new windows in place before summer’s heat arrives. This keeps us extra busy in the fall and spring, so our advice is to schedule your replacement window project as early as possible to avoid the crowds.
How Long Will My Windows Take?
The Bristol windows we install are all custom sized and fitted exclusively for your home. It can take several weeks to manufacture your windows once we have completed our measurements. Once we have a solid delivery date, we can schedule your installation date.
Depending on how many windows we are replacing, most projects are completed in just one or two days. That includes the detailed, step-by-step process we undertake on each window to make sure they are installed right the first time. We make sure your new windows are properly sized, precisely fitted, and sealed against the elements.
The result is a home that looks its best, is secure against the heat and cold, will use less energy, and whose interior temperature is easier to regulate. With all that to look forward to, why wait?
