A winter window replacement is an option if you have air leaks, moisture leaking into the house, or a cracked and dangerous window. There are a few factors to keep in mind when considering winter window replacements.

Should I Replace Windows Before Winter?

Windows can be replaced at any time. So yes, you can have new replacement windows installed at your home either before, or during winter. Our team will take special precautions to ensure your home remains warm during installation if you choose the latter.

That being said, if you decide you want to replace your windows before the winter season, there are great advantages to this.

Damaged windows can ruin your house.

When your current windows are worn, damaged, or not sealed right, they will cause damage to your home. If your window is poorly sealed, you could lose considerable amounts of the heat you are paying for to heat your home. Furthermore, in the event of snow or rain, a leak in your window could cause water damage not only to your wall and the area surrounding it, but also to potential items around it, including carpets, drapes, and furniture. You would be well advised to install new windows as soon as possible before temperatures begin to drop.

Your curb appeal will improve with new windows.

Is anyone coming to your house for the holidays? Maybe you have been putting off several aesthetic renovation projects that need to be completed before friends and relatives arrive? There is no need to wait any longer. It would amaze you to see how a replacement window can make a difference to the appearance of your home. In addition to being beautiful, they will also function better and contribute significantly to the value of your home.

Mold and mildew can attack older windows

In older windows, moisture from rain, snow, and ice can penetrate the seals. Mold and mildew can be caused by this, as well as condensation build-up on poorly insulated windows.

Mold and mildew are not only unsightly, but they can also pose a health risk to you and your family, decreasing the quality of air in your home.
