Schedule Your Window Replacement Before Summer

February 22, 2022

Your home is supposed to keep you comfortable, dry, and protected from the wind. So why do you feel a cold draft every time you walk by your windows? Is it a broken window pane, a faulty seal, or perhaps an old picture window? 

Either way, it’s a sure sign that it’s time to replace your windows. 

If your windows aren’t keeping the outside weather out, they aren’t insulating your home correctly. Replacing your windows can also help increase your home’s curb appeal and save you money on your heating and cooling bills.

We offer many modern, energy-efficient window options to update your home and save on costs from  Pella Doors & Windows, Simonton Vinyl Windows, Alliance Vinyl Windows, and Therma Tru Doors.

  • Vinyl Windows
  • Double Hung Windows
  • Fiberglass Windows
  • Sliding Windows
  • Double Pane or Triple Pane Windows
  • Pre-finished Wood Interior/Aluminum Clad Exterior Windows
  • Gas Filled 
  • And More!

You can potentially save between $126 and $465 annually by ditching your single-pane windows and replacing them with double-pane windows, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Are your current windows of the single-pane variety? Have the windows been in place for longer than the warranty period? Do you feel drafts inside your home regardless of how much caulking and weatherstripping you use?

Have your electricity bills been soaring over the last little while? Does it take a herculean effort to open or close your existing windows? Do your windows pose a security threat due to faulty locking mechanisms?

If you answer “yes” to any of the questions mentioned above, you’re likely a candidate for replacement windows. We’ve put together this guide to show you why now is a perfect time to schedule your window replacement and why you should never wait to get the job done. 

There’s Ideal Weather for Installation

The spring brings a lull between the cold, snowy winter weather and the hot, humid summer. In other words, it’s not too hot, and it’s not too cold, which means you’ll feel more comfortable during the window replacement. 

Colder or hotter temperatures can lead to condensation or cracking during the installation. 

Another added perk of spring installation is the longer days which means your project can be finished faster. 

Beat the Summer Rush

Many people wait until summer to replace their windows, despite the spring’s good weather conditions. Unfortunately, if you schedule your installation over the summer months, you might face longer wait times and higher prices. 

Now is the perfect time to schedule your window installation with the best contractor, Dick’s Roof Repair, before our schedule fills up for the rest of 2022.

Prepare Your Home to be Cooler for the Upcoming Summer Months

Every summer, Americans spend billions of dollars on air conditioning to cool their homes. While replacing your windows won’t keep out the heat, it can help you save some money on your HVAC system. Replacement windows improve your home’s insulation and reduce the time you’re running your air conditioner.

The value extends into the winter as well. Instead of needing to keep your heat set at a higher temperature, your home will maintain a more comfortable temperature.. Replacing your windows is an upfront investment, but is a  home improvement that will pay for itself in the long run. 

Allow Time for Supply Issues 

Due to Covid-19 and recent natural disasters, there has been a significant supply issue in the replacement window industry. Based on this, wait times for products, and prices continue to increase.

How Often Should You Replace Your Windows?

If it has been 15 to 20 years since you installed your windows, it’s time to start planning your replacement. You might be able to squeeze another year or two out of your windows, but they will be expensive and uncomfortable years in your home. In addition, old windows don’t insulate your home well, so you will need to rely on your HVAC to stay comfortable, and even that may not be enough.
