Window Replacement in Winter Time
While replacing your windows isn’t the biggest home improvement job, it does require some planning. One big planning step is deciding when you want to do your window replacement in the winter time. Though the winters aren’t so bad in Southern California, many homeowners express a lot of hesitation and concern about doing a window replacement in the winter. They list many worries, from the warm air escaping and cold air and other outside elements entering, and the crew tracking in water and mud, to it simply being just too cold for the window contractors to do their best work and successfully install your windows.
Winter window replacements
Despite these worries, winter window replacements are quite possible, and sometimes better than window replacements during the spring, summer or fall. Window contractors aren’t as busy in the winter, so you might have an easier time finding a date that works with your schedule. You might also get a better deal as the window contractor businesses are looking for more work in their “off” season.
A Perfect View Construction has plans set in place to perform winter window installations. Some common steps that these plans include are:
- Closing off each room that is being worked on to minimize heat loss
- Working in teams to remove only one window at a time, effectively minimizing outdoor exposure. Experienced teams can have each window removed for about five minutes or less, reducing the outdoor exposure even more.
- Covering and protecting floors and furnishings from winter elements like water and mud, as well as from foot traffic and construction debris.
- Custom-manufacturing each window to 1/8″of the opening so the installers can add additional installation on site, helping to maximize energy efficiency and reduce installation time.
