Certain home improvements, such as roof replacements, are ideally done during summer season. Window replacement, on the other hand, can be done during most seasons, including late fall. Your local residential windows company Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City shares the factors to consider if you’re planning on having your windows replaced during the fall season.
Mind the Weather Forecasts
Schedule window installation on a sunny day. If possible, schedule the job for mid-morning. This will allow enough time for the materials to warm up and expand. While window installation can be done while it’s raining, some sealants require 24 hours to cure before they can be exposed to moisture. Silicone-based caulk is the ideal type for such applications, given that it adheres better in colder temperatures.
Work With a Local Replacement Window Company
One of the benefits of working with a local replacement window company is they are more familiar with the local climate. Whether you need a few double-hung windows or floor to ceiling windows, we at Renewal by Andersen will take environmental factors into consideration. We hire the best local installers who will ensure that your new windows are installed under the right conditions.
One Window at a Time
Traditional window replacement methods involve removing all the windows at once before the new windows are installed. Most replacement window companies, including Renewal by Andersen, have stopped replacing windows this way because it leaves too much of the house open to the elements.
Today’s standard window replacement process involves removing the windows one at a time, or removing all windows from one room at a time. The room will then be sealed from the rest of the house during installation. This ensures the least amount of heat loss, and allows the homeowner to stay indoors during the process. Our installers will even do you one better by cleaning up every dust and speck before moving on to the next window.
