How to Make Off-Season Window Replacement Work

Replacement windows installation is ideally done during the spring or summer, but there are situations where it just can’t wait. Fortunately, window replacement can be done in most weather conditions. Here’s how to make off-season window replacement work.

Check the Weather Forecasts

As much as possible, try to book the installation date on a clear and sunny day. Starting the job mid-morning gives the materials time to warm up and expand. Installing the windows before the frames and sashes have acclimatized to the local climate may result in warping or improper operation.

One of the advantages of working with a local window replacement company is that they know the local climate and can tell you whether or not the weather is suitable for installation. We at Renewal by Andersen® know that the performance of energy-efficient windows depend on proper installation, and we don’t proceed with the installation unless we’re 100% sure that it will not be affected by the weather.

One at a Time vs. Whole-House Window Removal

More than a few replacement window contractors begin the window replacement process by removing all the old windows at the same time before starting on the first one. While this process works on a newly built house, doing it on an already occupied home has many downsides. You will have to turn off your home’s HVAC system for the project’s duration, hoping it won’t get too uncomfortable. This also leaves the home open to dust, pollen and other particulates that may clog the air filters.

Our window replacement process at Renewal by Andersen is different. We remove and replace one window at a time. This means you don’t have to turn off your HVAC system. In addition to keeping your home comfortable, your HVAC system will actually consume less energy if kept running. Turning it off and back on consumes more energy, or fuel, if your home has a furnace. This process lets us perform window replacements virtually any time of the year.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
