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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
