Now that winter is finally coming to an end and the sound of birds chirping and the sight of buds blossoming is becoming the norm, it may be the time to think about upgrading your residential windows. Indeed, there is a season for everything, and for new residential window installation, that season is spring. Here are some reasons why spring is the perfect time for new residential windows, and why you should work with Preferred Window and Door for all your residential window needs:
Why Spring Is the Best Time for New Windows
When compared to summer, fall, or winter, spring makes the top of the list as the best time of the year for new residential windows. To be sure, here are some top reasons why right now is the time to take action on window replacement:
Caulk adherence. One reason why investing in new window installation in the spring rather than in the summer or in the winter is that caulk will adhere better when temperatures are warmer out, but not too warm. When it’s too cold, caulk cannot adhere; when it’s too hot, caulk cannot cure.
Expansion and contraction concerns. There are a number of materials that are involved in the residential window installation process that can contract in the cold, and expand in the heat. Which means that if you install and caulk windows when it’s too hot or too cold out, you may be dealing with cracks or splits in materials when temperatures change. As such, installing new windows when temperatures are moderate is ideal.
Chilly drafts and increased comfort. Who wants to deal with new window installation when it’s freezing out, or when it’s scalding? When you invest in new window replacement, your windows will be open during the installation process, which means that whatever the temperature of outdoor air, you can expect to be affected by it. By investing in new window installation in the springtime, you can keep everyone in your home more comfortable during the installation process, and reduce the amount of money you spend trying to heat or cool your home to combat any discomfort brought on by extreme outdoor air temperatures.
